I signed up to Birchbox in June of this year to test out new products, keep with the trends, and receive a package each month filled with goodies – because who doesn’t love that? The best part is that everything that arrives is travel size, perfect to use when you want to jet out on a cheap airline with only a small bag/carry on case. That’s my excuse anyway.
While I love the products I receive and am thrilled at opening up the package to get stuck in and test them, I find that a week or two later I haven’t touched them again, unless I’ve gone travelling as above. On top of this, I am a creature of habit and still go out and by the normal products I love on top of it. I’m basically spending more on beauty products than ever before and my bathroom cabinet and bedroom are starting to look like a mini department store. I need to make the effort to use these products regularly, or pass them on to friends and family. There’s no point in holding on to stuff if I won’t use it. Is it cheeky to gift them in presents if unused? That’s totally something I’d do.
My favourite product in my September box would have to be the ModelCo Highlighting Trio, never have my cheekbones looked so fierce. That would probably be my most used product received, that, and of course my Merci Handy hand cleansing gel in Lollipop flavour.
If you’re in the mood to try some new products and brands (some I’d never heard of!) definitely get yourself signed up, even if just for a month! If you do decide to sign up, use this link and tell them I sent you – you’ll get a £5 welcome and a pretty bracelet!
