Girly moment — I received my first Birchbox sample box today. If this collection is a good example of what they’ll be sending every month, then it’s totally worth the $10.
It held a sample of Kate Spade Twirl (which, yes, I could have probably gotten at a department store, but then I’d have to endure a sales pitch from ladies wearing lots of makeup); a small bottle of Blow NY volumizing shampoo; a sample of Sircuit Cosmeceuticals Molecular Mist, which contains “heavy water” that’s supposed to keep my skin hydrated (and I assume that it has nothing to do with nuclear reactors); a couple of nail polish stripper removal packets (note to Birchbox: next month, send nail polish); and, finally, a full-size container of Laura Geller Baked Blush N’ Brighten blusher/highlighter.
As I expected, it’s going to be very exciting to see what’s in the box every month. It’s an awesome gift to myself.
