I received my Birchbox at the end of last week and I was excited to see that it was sponsored by Gossip Girl. I am a Gossip Girl FANATIC (Chuck and Blair forever!) So, it was no surprise that when I got the box my heart skipped a beat.
So here's what's inside:
- Fusion Beauty LipFusion Balm: (full-size) $22
- Ojon damage reverse Restorative Conditioner: (sample) $2.94
- Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream: (sample) $3.80
- Arquiste Flor y Canto scent: (sample) $3.39
- *Bonus: Gossip Girl xoxo Notecard w/Envelope
The box is worth about $32. At first glance, I thought it was a great box. I've heard a lot about the Ojon products and have always wanted to give them a try. I also interned at The Plaza Hotel, where Caudalie has a spa, so i already knew that that would be an excellent product. I am apprehensive about the lip plumper, because I already have full lips and fear that i'll walk around looking like a duck, but it promises that it is gentle so we'll see.
Once I did some research, there were a few boxes that I would have preferred getting. For example, this is the SECOND box that I did not receive a nail polish in and i'm highly annoyed by this. They sent another perfume sample *whoopie* I could live without it. I would have liked the Stila eyeliner... but ehhh.
I'm considering re-taking the quiz to see if my next box shifts a little but honestly, for $10, I can't REALLY moan about $32 in products.
