Here it is, the age old dilemma of "do I subscribe to a beauty box or not"? You see, I was subscribed to glossy box and ended up cancelling after the first box because - well I needed that £10 a month. Then the price went up and I was glad that I cancelled, whilst as the same time being oober jealous of everyone else getting little samples in the post each month. But then, others came along and I tried a few but never really was wowed by anything.
Then one day at a Cardiff Blogger Meet there was a Birchbox in the goody bag and a little spark of interest was lit. Then Leanne posted a picture on her blog's facebook page showing the contents of October's box which got me hunting down whether if I started my subscription that day would I get the same box. Turns out it was, so one lunchtime whilst snuggled on the office bean bags (yes we have office bean bags) I subscribed to Birchbox.
This box I am pretty chuffed with, I wanted to try the nipple balm for ages and the KMS dry shampoo is from a brand that I used whilst staying at Leanne's flat and loved so wanted to see what else the brand had to offer. The Laura Mercier primer I think EVERYONE wants to try and is probably the one product everyone is pleased to see. The stain by theBalm, well who isn't up for trying a new lip colour? The Dr Bandit microdermabrasion sample will also be nice to scrub up on one of my weekend pampers! We are also looking for a really good whitening toothpaste so will add this one to the list we are trying.
And to top it all off there were large samples of egyptian magic cream which I'm hoping will help soften up the dry skin I have since coming back from Mexico.
Are you subscribed to any beauty boxes?
