My First Birchbox!

After hearing so much about Birchbox and reading lots of blog posts about it I finally decided to join the club. I've never been great with beauty products and experimenting with my "look" so I thought this may be a great way to try some new products.
I got my first Birchbox at the end of last week and I was really excited. I wanted to try everything out before I posted about it. It was fun trying out new stuff and getting out of the same routine. So here is what I got and what I thought:
Atelier Cologne: Vanille Insensee - I've been wearing the same scent for awhile so this was a great sample. I got a couple complements already on it  and I've only worn it a couple days. I like it, but I'm not sure if I'm in love.
Twistband - I've heard about these new hair ties before but I just wasn't that impressed. I have extremely fine, thin hair so I might be a harder sell than most. The band just didn't hold my hair very tightly.

Color Club: Nail Polish in Disco Nap - I can't say I owned gold nail polish before my Birchbox came in. I'm still milking my wedding manicure and pedicure for all it's worth so I'll have to try this sample out a little later.
Dr. Jart + : Waterfuse BB Cream - I really kind of liked this product. It is like a really nice tinted moisturizer, or at least that's how I have been using it. I love that it's really light and has 25spf built in, both are great with summer coming up.
fresh: Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment - This was by far my favorite item in the box. I'm addicted to chapstick but I generally hate the tinted versions. But this one was light, natural looking, and easy takes the place of chapstick. Two thumbs up for me.
It was really fun getting my first Birchbox and it was a great little surprise to get in the middle of the week. Big thanks to all my friends who suggested it. 


  1. I signed up too! My box is supposed to get here this week! I'm so excited!

  2. So fun! That is exactly what my mom got this month. I was skeptical about the polish but it looks really good on!!
