It's Birchbox time!!!
But wait...I am not even happy about it. Because this month's samples were a little disappointing. I actually cheated and watched Yuliya's August Birchbox video yesterday and felt kind of "blah" about it. Funny because I didn't even receive the same samples as her (at least she and many others received an eyeliner!). So now I am double disappointed.
Besides the Smashbox photo finish primer (which I have used before) I have not heard of any of the other brands. Looking forward to seeing what Ouidad climate control gel will do for my hair. I could see The Cool Fix becoming a staple in my life if it works. It's a gel lotion for razor bump/burn and ingrown hair treatment. We shall see. June Jacobs Papaya Masque sounds and smells yummy but I can never see myself shelling out $62 for a masque, ever. With that much money, I could just go get a relaxing facial in stead.
Oh and we have this...
Honestly, when I saw this piece of elastic in the box first thing that came to my mind was "oh I guess whoever packed my box forgot an extra ribbon in there". Then I read the contents card.I just don't see what's so special about this elastic. It's an elastic. It was the "extra" this month. I would have seriously rather had another KIND bar instead. Anyway, I try everything at least once. So I tied my hair, and I also wore it on my wrist because according to the card it's supposed to look equally good on your hair and wrist. Hmm not so sure about that.
At this point, I am having a love/hate relationship with Birchbox. And it's not me, it's you Birchbox.
Any other disappointed subscribers out there? Is there anyone excited about their box this month?
