December Birchbox Frolic and Fancy: LAST BIRCHBOX
Unfortunitly, I had to break up with Birchbox. It was 6 months and I had to kiss it goodbye. Around December 24th I received my very last Birchbox which is pretty rare because I usually get it the first or second week of the month. Well since it was a little late I emailed them to see if their was a problem and firstly I didn't receive an email until a week later which is completely not good customer service. I understand that people are busy, but this isn't a company that just started, therefore they should be a little more on top of it, but that wasn't the only reason why I canceled. Lately I feel like they aren't putting any thought in to the boxes. I mean I understand I'm paying $10 for a box but every month its the same thing and I believe I've only purchased one full size product out of the box because nothing has really been worth my fancy.
Overall In my opinion I think that they're are just so many other boxes out their now a days "cough cough" (My Glam) and they're really not stepping up their game. If they at least tried and put more effort into it I wouldn't have a problem. I mean come on those perfume samples that I get in every box you can get for free at department stores.
December's Birchbox was actually for a good cause, and if I would have gotten it a little sooner maybe I could have purchased something. Birchbox was offering a 100% of their proceeds to Baby Buggy. Which is a great cause supplying needy families whom are less fortunate. The December Birchbox was created with products that will get you ready for frolicking and fancy fetes.
IN THIS MONTHS BIRCHBOX:
Jouer moisturizing hot fuchsia lip gloss. This is ok. I've just gotten so many Jouer lipglosses I'm to the point tired of them. Its a pretty color.
Oscar Blandi invisible dry shampoo. This I'm actually really excited about trying. I always use dry shampoo every other day if I don't wash my hair. Some just don't do it and I will have to but in some cases majority are pretty decent especially if it holds up to its claim being invisible so that I don't have that yuck white mess in my black hair. not cute.
Nuxe Dry usage oil. This I already got in my birchbox except the last one just wasn't glittery. Which is a total bust because I don't really like the other one so why would they send it to me again? Obviously I didn't purchase the full size?
Atelier cologne. This smells alright. Haven't heard of the brand before. Its a little musky for me.
Designer fashion tape. Peep Show two sided tape. I have this fashion tape that you can purchase at Micheal's, or drug stores and I don't use it to often. Like the other little extras I'll put them in a drawer and maybe one day I will get some use out of it.
Eboost Natural Energy booster. I guess I see why they put this in the box the holidays could drain you, and get to busy you might need a little boost. I still don't get why they insist on putting snacks and drinks in the box but hey they tried. Can't complain.
What did you get in your Birchbox?
