Recently I haven't been as thrilled to receive my monthly Birchbox as I was when I first signed up. Last months box arrived broken and full of glass shards and another box had to be shipped to me. Then I couldn't access their site for a month and it took me about a week to get everything sorted with the company. That being said, this month's box may have redeemed Birchbox in my eyes.
Obligatory list of products. Ooooh ahhhhhh.
100% pure Wrinkle Smoothing Night Cream- I'm a recent fan of eye creams, especially with the many sleepless nights and early mornings. I haven't tried this eye cream before but I have tried this brand and I think it's super rich and creamy and I expect nothing but rave reviews for this once I try it out.
Gilchrist and Soames London Collection Shampoo and Conditioner- First off, how cute are these bottles? I could justify never using these just to keep the bottles next to my shower. My only hesitation with trying new shampoo and conditioner is my hair color. I'm a bottle red over super bleached previously brunette hair, so my hair is not always keen on new products. I love the smell, I love the look, but my hair will be the final judge of this product.
Illume Hand Cream- The packaging kills it. I love the look. I am terrified of the scent. Hence why I have not opened this yet for fear I will not like it and have to toss it. It claims to be floral, and a most floral hand creams smell like gardenias which I do not like the scent of at all. Fingers crossed guys, fingers crossed.
Ghirardelli Intense Dark Cherry Tango- I was really happy to see a sweet treat in this months box. I ended up giving this to my boyfriend, and heard no complaints so I'm assuming it was delicious. Keep the sweet treats coming birchbox! Keep em coming!
Overall I really like the high quality feel of this months box. I love the packaging and how most of the items were things I've never tried before. I would like to never see another Coola sample as long as I live, but knowing Birchbox's previous summer boxes I think we will be reacquainted sooner than later.
