|From left to right: Zhena's Gypsy Tea, Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, Zoya nail polish in Dove|
I finally received my first box today, and while I am intrigued by what I received, I must say that I'm whelmed. Maybe this is because I had hyped up the service in my mind or perhaps it's because I previewed some other people's Birchboxes online (I never claimed that patience was my strong suit). Or perhaps it's because I received a rather large tin of tea, which is nice but not quite what I was expecting. However, I think I can safely say that I did get my money's worth with this box...
This month's box had an eco-friendly theme in honor of Earth Day. These earth-friendly products include:
- LIV GRN eau de parfum
- Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser (no microbeads - yay!)
- Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion
- Zoya nail polish in Dove (a soft gray)
- A Bllomin wildflower seed card (this was an extra)
- Zhena's Gypsy Tea in Italian Chamomile (this was also an extra for the box)
|In the cute pink packet: LIV GRN parfum, Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion (wildflower card is under the perfume)|
As I said, I did check out other people's Birchbox hauls (there is often some variation in the boxes), so I was a little bummed by some of the products (gray nail polish? for spring? really?). However, I am definitely looking forward to the Suki cleanser, and I will even give the gray polish a try.
Please let me know if you have questions about Birchbox or if you'd like to see more Birchbox hauls (or reviews from my Birchbox hauls). As I said earlier, I'm playing with this blog's content, so constructive feedback is welcome.
