This month’s Birchbox is the nail in the coffin for my subscription.
I’m not going to sit and moan, but these tiny samples aren’t really my thing. I don’t think it’s value for money and I think there are other boxes out that that contain better products on a more regular basis. I can’t remember the last time I got a full size product from Birchbox.
I’m keen to try the Benefit Stay Don’t Stray eyeshadow primer, and the Pores No More. But the perfume is a little ‘old lady’ for me. And the oil will probably not cover more than half my body, so I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get a good judgement of how good it is (the main dissapointment was opening the huge green and white box to see what was in it. You shouldn’t have a box that big for such a small sample, it’s bound to lead to upset!). And I’m not actually a fan of Molton Brown handcream, it’s not really very moisturising.
Anyway, so that’s it. I’m going to cancel Birchbox from now.
Can you recommend an alternative? I’ve heard Glossybox is still a bit rubbish (which was why I cancelled with them last year). Let me know if you’ve found the holy grail of beauty boxes and I’ll be subscribing straight away!
