Well hello there! How are all of you, my lovies? I’ve had a hell of time these past few months – I’ll put up an update post soon just so you guys know what’s been going on and what’s in store for the future!
But until then, let’s talk about Birchbox some more. Because who doesn’t want to talk about Birchbox always, right? Seriously, this is consistently my favorite subscription box (well, okay, GlossyBox is actually my favorite, but they just don’t have the rewards system Birchbox does, and they ARE pricey. So, I had to reluctantly remove a point and put Birchbox in the lead!). Partly because it’s inexpensive, and partly because I’ve discovered some of my favorite new products through the company. The most common complaint I hear about BB is that they tend to send out ‘foil packet’ samples. That’s entirely true – they do. But for $10 a month? I honestly don’t expect the world. I’d rather try a small sample of something I might actually use, than get an assortment of full or deluxe sized items that I will never use because the quality just isn’t there. I’m pretty particular about what I put on my face – I’ll try just about anything once, and I certainly believe that some of the best products out there are drugstore products, but I am unabashedly a fan of a lot of luxury items. My skin is, as I’ve mentioned many times, a particularly Special effing Snowflake, and doesn’t always like what I try to do to it. I’ve got a couple plans in the works, so keep your eyes peeled for “Jess Takes On Her Skin In 2015″ posts – we shall see who wins, eh?!
Birchbox has lately taken to doing curated boxes with different people/companies/groups/what have you, which is a pretty darn cool concept. I don’t, however, like the lack of a surprise factor. I DO like being able to choose one sample, and have the rest be a surprise. It’s the best of all worlds – I know I’ll like at least one thing, which makes the value awesome, and then I get to be surprised for the rest.
Needless to say, I will be continuing this subscription well into the new year! If you have been thinking about signing up and just haven’t had the chance yet, please consider doing so through my link, found HERE. As always, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have, all that link does is give me bonus points, which I then use to buy more cool things to share with all of you! Because why not let someone else smear weird shit all over their face, eh? It’s fun!
On to the December box!
