So there’s my actual box. The only thing that is missing is the Kissable Couture lip gloss, because it’s currently on my desk at work. On to the reviews:
1. AHAVA Dermud Foot Cream
I got two packets of this (.14 fl oz) and I enjoyed it it. I love any kind of moisturizing product, but I don’t usually buy creams that are specifically for feet. It’s basically a thicker cream with a light scent. I thought it was nice, but nothing special. Not something I would pay full price for.
2. Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Papers
I really loved these! My skin gets super oily (yeah, gross) at work due to the fact that I’m up on the 11th floor and it’s really dry up there, so I keep a package of oil blotting papers at my desk. These are a higher-end version and worked really nicely. Plus they’re large and you use both sides, so I cut them in half to make them last longer. The package came with three, but the full-sized version contains 30 for $12.
3. colorscience pro sunforgettable Mineral Powder
I didn’t love this, but also didn’t hate it (.21 oz). Powder is not something I would splurge on. The shade matched my skin color well, though. Plus it’s got an SPF of 30, which is a plus.
4. Kissable Couture lip gloss in Glamour
I got a full-sized version of this in my box! I saw some other posts where people only got a trial size. That made me happy, since it’s $22 for a full-sized product (.16 oz). However, I wouldn’t buy one because it wasn’t anything special. No different to me than the CoverGirl kinds you can buy at the drugstore for $4.
5. Korres Guava Body Butter
This was definitely my favorite thing in the box (235 mL). I love body butters, and this one smells nice and is nice and thick. I would consider buying the full-sized version.
6. AHAVA Revival Bath Salts in Mandarin Cedarwood
Unfortunately I can’t review this product because it was missing from my box :( But I contacted Birchbox about it and they kindly rewarded me with 100 points, which means $10 in credits towards a full-sized product.
All in all, I was very happy with my first Birchbox!
