Beauty subscription boxes have been the greatest and latest thing in the beauty community because you get to try out new products before committing to purchasing a full size product. So what are the advantages? I think these are great. You get them delivered for $10 and get 5 or so mini to full sized products to try out based on a quiz regarding your beauty preferences.
So here it goes, I have been a member of Birchbox for two months I received the June Box and July and I absolutely hated both boxes. Yes they are inexpensive, yes the packaging is cute and better than Ipsy but they give me the wrong products. I decided to cancel my Birchbox subscription. I received products I cannot use because they do not fit me such as a face treatment for dry skin. A lip stain that was ruined when I opened the box. I received an email saying that I chose that on my profile. Most of the products are either hair or face products which one I do not use products in my hair when I style and 2 I have sensitive oily skin that is very difficult to use many of these products.
Inside the bag:
Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer ($32)👍🏽
Great Primer for a dewy finish. It gives you a glow and at the same time helps makeup stay on longer.
skyn ICELAND The ANTIDOTE Cooling Daily Lotion ($45) 👎🏽
Keeps you hydrated. If you have redness in your skin this might work.
Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in No Filter ($15)👍🏽
I love nail polishes and this is one I would wear. The color is great, it is a fast drying polish.
VASANTI COSMETICS Professional Eyeshadow Brushes ($21)👍🏽
Tapered shadow brushes are great for covering the base of your eyelid, applying glitter, highlight and more. Super soft bristles.
Palmetto Derma Rejuvenating Antioxidant Mask ($64) 👍🏽
Leaves your skin really soft, fresh and clean.
Inside the box:
Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream ($32) 👎🏽
I am not a big fan of CC creams specially tinted ones that do not match your skin tone. This one is a miss.
Marcelle Xtension Curl Mascara ($14) 👍🏽
This was ok because we can never have too many mascaras but does not do wonders like it claims to do.
Avene Thermal Spring Water ($9-18) 👍🏽
This is great to set your makeup, to refresh along the day; specially with this hot weather.
Beauty Protector Leave in Conditioner ($24) 👍🏽
This one is a maybe, my hair does not need detangling and the scent is really strong something I do not enjoy but it does make your hair softer and protects it from heat.
Balance Me Face Mask 👎🏽
Although I love face mask I do not see any results. It is suppose to exfoliate and brighten skin but have not seen a difference.
The whole point of these subscription boxes are to find out about products you might not be familiar with. I think its a hit miss situation because they are not that specific with their beauty quizzes. I have had more success with Ipsy than with Birchbox but that is my opinion.
I would love to know which one is your favorite? Are you subscribed to any? Which one would you get?
