This month was an underwhelming Birchbox for me. Here's why...
1- EVERYONE ELSE got theirs before I did. Was mine lost in the mail? I don't know. But seeing on IG and twitter everyone else's Birchboxes made me bummed. Mine was a week later this time.
Then the next day I got an e-mail from Birchbox saying they hope I'm enjoying my products and they included this video (below). I watch it and am PSYCHED! They always send me videos of stuff I've gotten in my box. Like how to apply self tanner, nail art tips, useful info. So of course I watch this video, I'm getting the most awesome eyeliner stickers ever! I just knew it! I gotta apply them right! OMG EXCITEMENT!
3- Everyday I'm still checking my mailbox, I am so excited about these eyeliner stickers. And then finally, this week my box arrives.... I was so distrought I didn't even take a picture. I was like wai!?!?! WHAT!? This must be some sort of mistake.
2- Viva la Jucy? I can just walk through any department store and spray it on. I already own Juicy. Yes this one is a little different, but not unusual .
3- Face wash? I can't even use it. You all read in my favorite beauty products post that I have SUPER sensitive skin and have to use a specific face wash. If I use anything else my skin is dry/breaks out it's embarassing. (*note, yes I did try this product just to see if there was another brand that could work for me. The results were AWFUL! All week I've had to battle the results of using a sub-par face wash. Dry, peeling skin, break-outs, it was a mistake to try). And I think this was this month's full size product. not sure.
4- The q-tips with built in nail polish remover are okay. But I'm not 5 years old. I can paint my nails without going 'outside the lines.' This was actually kind of an insult to my skills. I know I am maybe in the minority of people who can do this.
