Birchbox: The Slightly More Affordable Beauty Subscription

Yesterday I shared info about one subscription beauty box that is easy to give for a holiday gift, today I'm sharing the slightly more affordable Birchbox. Again, this is a box I've had for about a month, and I'm not certain which month it is (November? December?), it just showed up at my house and I thought I'd share what's in a typical box. #TimelyIamNot

Inside my box I found a Juicy Couture perfume sample (which I'll review if I ever have a non-stuffy nose), Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Microderm Cleanser (yes, a scrub), One Love Organics Aromatic Body Serum, Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo (some gross chocolate thing that I'm purposefully ignoring because I was slightly traumatized) and this:

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer, which can be a highlighter or an eye shadow. I have to be honest, theBalm is a brand that I have been ignoring, due to a little incident a few years ago. So, this is the first time I've used anything from them. This is a very cute little compact, and while it would be small even for a travel sized highlighter, it's a decent size for an eye shadow. I've used it as both already, and it works for both. I just vary the size of my brush depending on my application.

I haven't tried the Miracle Skin Transformer scrub yet since I'm still using my glycolic pads from Meaningful Beauty. The One Love Organics Body Serum doesn't seem to have a smell? Is this just me? I thought Aromatic meant smell... The Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo is really amazing though! This is a nice travel size, it doesn't turn white and it does a great job of adding volume and mattifying my hair.

Birchbox is $10 a month for women ($20 for men), and you can give a 12 month subscription for $110, 6 months for $60 or 3 months for $30.
