My First Birchbox Experience

I pretty much always stick to what I know these days when it comes to beauty products which is why the idea of a subscription box has never really appealed to me. I used to really enjoy my 
Glossy Boxes back in the day but I cancelled them after I realised I had so many products which were sitting in a drawer unloved *sad emoji*. However, I have literally been tossing and turning with the idea of signing up to Birchbox since I started blogging almost three years ago now so I thought now was as good a time as ever to give it a go...

This month I received five samples of products I have absolutely never used before. Some I had heard of and some I hadn't so I'll start with the product I actually chose which was the Model & Co Highlighting Trio. Obviously like every basic white girl on the internet at the moment I am becoming a little bit obsessed with highlighter so I like the fact this has three different shades for me to try out. Probably my favourite thing in the whole box though is the Nuxe Paris Precious Scented Shower Oil which sounds pretty strange but oh so appealing. Basically its a shower oil that is supposed to leave you not only moisturised but smelling wonderful AND it leaves a lovely sheen on the skin from all the little shimmer particles contained inside. I admit that prior to this I have never owned anything by Nuxe Paris so I'm looking forward to trying this out. 

Also in the box is a Batiste Ooh La La XXL Volume Spray. Now I'm not someone who needs huge amounts of volume in my hair on a daily basis as my hair is naturally quite long and thick (no extensions required) but on nights out when I style my hair using heat it goes quite flat so I'll probably give it a go then. The only brand I didn't recognise in the box was a brand called Whish from whom I'd been sampled a miniature Almond Body Lotion. This is really sweet scented so is not for everyone but I happen to be a huge fan of almond scents. Last but not least was a travel sized Bioderma H20 which is handy for me going to Germany in December as I'm taking only hand luggage. 

Because it was my first time trying out Birchbox (or at least I think that's the reason) I was given a little extra bag of goodies and again I can just see how handy they are going to be to take away with me later this year as they include a face mask, a body scrub and a heat protecting spray. I was even surprised to find some luxury or high end products in this gift like Rituals and Balance Me so well done Birchbox on drawing me in. I just hope next month is as good as this one. 

What Subscription boxes do you buy? Do you think they are worth it?

  1. I have not yet jump on the subscription bandwagon as yet but Birchbox has always intrigue me the most. Looks like you have some great products. That Bioderma micelle water is my favorite of all time.
