Ay yooo, whose late to the Birchbox game? This girl! And who loves to get snail mail full of beauty goodies? This girl! So who is this really shocking too? This girl! Think I’ve made a point here…
Welcome to the first ever BATP Birchbox Unboxing, guaranteed to continue at least for the next year (because yes thats how long the subscription is)!! If you’re living under a rock – clearly like I am – and are not familiar with Birchbox, it’s basically a couple of bucks a month in exchange for sample beauty products.
I don’t know what made me finally just subscribe after years of debating, but now I’m all in! For heaven’s sake, I was a Birchblogger before I was even a Birchbox-er. I may have arrived to the party late, but here I am #beautifullylate. And I’m so glad I came when I did because my first box was hand selected by Cupcakes and Cashmere aka only the second best blog out there (after mine.) So what was inside my first ever B-box?
BATP B-Box Fave | Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum
Um, yum! This smelled like little roses fell onto my face. And it attacks aging which is a benefit on its own. I’ve never heard of Jurlique but it also happens to Cupcakes and Cashmere’s fave so basically we are the same person #twinzWITHgoodtaste
Spoke To The Beauty Queen In Me | W3LL People The Expressionist Mascara
I have such a thing for mascaras. And funny thing is, I haven’t purchased one in years. So correction, I have such a thing for sample mascaras. They are legit the BEST! I don’t think this bad boy will replace my fave by Makeup Forever, but I do hope I get mascara in every single box moving forward.
Been dying to try! | PARLOR Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray
I have to be honest I really don’t understand why people use sea salt spray. I already have frizzy hair so I mean if I wanted that look then I would just roll out of bed and go to work… Ok, fair, one time I thought my hair looked “too good” so I sprayed some sea salt spray but I don’t think thats how you use it. However, I was super excited to finally get my hands on PARLOR products! This particular product smells soooo good…. but again I don’t know why to use it….
The One That Made No Impression | Marcelle Energizing Hydrating Gel
Just typing the name bored me as much as the product did. Its for dry skin, blah, blah.
Return, Please | Raw Spirit Fragrances Citadelle
MY.NOSE.HURTS. Ok, to the extreme and beyond but seriously I was not expecting that smell to come from such a cute, pretty bottle. Literally, my wrist smells like it got attacked by a woodsy-tree. In a weird way, if I was like trying to get a guy to back off I might use this and act like its my preferred scent of choice. So there you go, making use.
My-first-birchbox total value: $167**
**Footnote: The value could have potentially been more, but I would have totally bought the small size for Citadelle. Not a fan.
