I'm not gonna lie to you guys, I have a love / hate relationship with Birchbox. I absolutely love getting a box every month, I feel like it's my birthday when it arrives and I'm always super excited to open it and find out what's inside but then I open it and I just go 'oh'.

When I signed up for Birchbox I got asked what I was interested on and what I want to see in my box and what not but it seems like they completely ignored that if I'm honest. I have now been receiving BirchBox for a year and it's not very often that I am impressed with all the products. Sure, sometimes I am a bit excited than others but in general, I only end up using one or two of the five products I receive, if I use any at all. I always think to myself I'm going to cancel this subscription but then I think, but what if the next one is good? So really, it's a no win for me. For example, I really enjoyed last month's one but this month there is only one thing that I know I'll use, the rest will end up on my 'big Birchbox box' where all my samples lay untouched. I have lost count of how many moisturizers, hand creams and soaps I have.

But never mind, sorry for this little rant. If you wanna see what I got on this months Birchbox keep reading!

I must admit I love this months box. Not the products, but the actual box. I am a big big big fan of Pinterest and I just think this box is super cute! It also comes with some motivation cards inside and a mirror which could come in handy. As for the products, in this month box I got:

Benefit's They're Real Tinted Primer (Eyelash primer)
Jelly Pong Pong Lighten Up Brightener + Waterline (White eyeliner)
Whish Three Whishes Almond Body Butter (Body butter)
Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle (Hair detangler)
Absolution L'eau Soir et Martin (Cleansing water)

If this was my first box I would be quite happy, but for the last year I have been receiving pretty much the same over and over. Like every month, I am going to give it another go next month and if I don't enjoy it much I think I will un-subscribe and look for a better box out there!

Do you enjoy Birchbox? What other subscriptions do you recommend?


  1. I feel the same way as you! I find that I get products that I didn't ask for, but yet they keep on sending them to me! And each month I still hope for more beauty products. I get a lot of hair and skin products, which isn't a bad thing - just not what I was expecting! But this was such a lovely post, and beautiful photos! xo

  2. I unsubscribed after receiving the December box/bag, which I really disliked! I used to love Birchbox, but now I just find that I keep wasting my money! Its such a shame!Oh and by the way I love your photography, pictures look fab!
