I honestly had no idea who or what cupcakes and cashmere was before I got my May Birchbox but if the cute info card graphic is any indication I thought I’d really love this box. There are some yummy looking things on that card!
RAW SPIRIT Desert Blush Perfume Sample
The first item in my box was a perfume sample Birchbox promises to send no more than 6 in a year and I think I’m almost at my quota already. My toddler took about 2.5 seconds to open this and spill all of the contents out but at least he didn’t drink it, right ! So I didn’t get to use this but honestly while I was cleaning it up I really liked how it smelled.
No. 4 Non Aerosol Hair Spray
Hair Spray isn’t something I use regularly especially in summer because I need to have my hair up and off my neck 99% of the time. I’ll keep this though for when I do want my hair to look put together. I do like that it’s non aerosol.
Laqa & Co. Lip Lube
When I first saw this I kind of thought to myself where am I going to wear purple! It has turned out to be my favourite item in the box. The colour is fairly light and it is very moisturizing. It doesn’t last very long though it comes off very easily. I’ve been wearing this a lot , it’s got a slight minty flavour to it which i enjoy.
Gilchrist & Soames Body Wash
I’ve never heard of Gilchrist & Soames before, the body wash has a nice light scent and the sample is a good size that will last some time.
BeeKind Body Wash
I really liked the scent of this body lotion. Interestingly enough it’s also manufactured by Gilchrist & Soames.
This was my first Birchbox that I’m just ok with. I didn’t dislike the contents but I feel like some more variety in my boxes would be nice. See the thing with boxes is a box that I might love, someone else might hate it’s very hard to judge. I try to stay positive in my reviews and though I know some have been disappointed with Birchbox Canada I am not. I’ve had good experiences with their customer service and though there is always room for improvement overall I’m happy with my boxes.
What did you get in your box ? Are you happy with Birchbox so far?
