I have been receiving a Birchbox for a little over a year now and I found it fitting to do a "Year Ago" series to see what I got in my box in the said month, a year ago. I will also tell you what I thought about each product and so on.
Since I don't really have the items anymore in most cases, I am not going to show all the pictures. I will use the pictures from their website and just list what I received.
Is it spring yet? We don’t know about you, but we’re ready for a change — and we don’t just mean swapping cozy sweaters for springy frocks. This month is about taking everything to the next level, from your sinkside essentials to your makeup routine.
To start your upgrade, we’re introducing you to better versions of your daily staples: an Italian toothpaste that will make you look forward to brushing your teeth and a luscious organic lip balm infused with aromatic essential oils.
Change doesn’t just mean trying out a new lip color (though we’re all for that). Learn the ins and outs of self-tanning with our cheat sheet and learn how to get the most flattering brow shape for your face. Watch our video tutorial on how to get the dewy model look, or test-drive the matte lips trend. And we even have an upgrade for your iPod: a free download of the latest hit from stunning Danish singer Oh Land, this month’s Birchbox Crush.
Hayley, Katia, and the Birchbox team
1. Blow Up Thickening Mist - Full Size: $21.00
I did not use this. I have pretty big hair already and I thought it was silly they sent me something that is supposed to thicken it up!
2. Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste - Full Size: $10.50
I did not like this at all!! It stung my mouth and it had a terrible taste. Everyone has been bent over getting coasters, well how about toothpaste for you!?
3. Pangea Organics Facial Scrub - Full Size: $32.00
This is not pictured, I think because it was such a small sample. I don't believe I used this either. I have so many of them because Eco-Emi used to send them out too.
4. Pangea Organics Lip Balm - Full Size: $12.00
I LOVED this and I actually still have it. This has probably been my favorite item I have received from BB ever!
5. Pomega5 Daily Revitalizing Concentrate - Full Size: $48.00
I didn't use these.
So those are the items I got in my second BB from March 2011. It was a little different from my first box as there wasn't really any "make up" but I will forever love this box for the lip balm!
