This month's Birchbox theme is Natural Wonders. It definitely made me wonder, "What in the world were they thinking?" I am pretty positive you will wonder this yourself when you the last picture.
So, here is what came in my box this month:
Zoya Nail Polish in Lotus
It's no secret that I love nail polish. What girl doesn't? My collection is pretty ridiculous and I have zero guilt about about adding to it. Purple polish is not something I would pick up and buy, but I am up for trying new shades.
Amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask
A conditioning mask that's supposed to help boost shine and repair split ends. I am always down for a little hair therapy. My hair easily breaks and splits and I have yet to find a product that helps with this. Do you ladies have any suggestions?
Juice Beauty - Oil Free Moisturizer
I guess they had some extras of this because I got the same exact tube in my Birchbox a couple of months ago! I guess they forgot that they sent it to me already. Or maybe they wanted to be thoughtful and sent an extra one so I could offer it up as a blog giveaway (kidding). Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that the whole concept of Birchbox was to try different samples each month.
Wonderstruck Taylor Swift
Another perfume sample...really? Can we please get a tad bit more creative, Birchbox friends? If I want to try a new scent, I will pick up a sample when I am at Sephora or Ulta or from one of the perfume ladies that always try to shove them down my purse when I walk through a department store. To me, this is just a filler for the box.
Dropps Laundry Detergent
Okay, last and definitely LEAST, I present to you this bag of complete and utter insult!! My mouth dropped to the floor when I saw this...freaking laundry detergent in my Birchbox. This is exactly what I wanted to sample and pay a monthly $10 subscription for. Seriously? Why in the hell would Birchbox think that this okay? These Dropps officially sealed the deal to DROP my membership.
So, adios, Birchbox. After our four month relationship, I am giving my spot to someone on your waiting list. I may regret it when I see the Gossip Girl box you are planning next month, but you really p*ssed me off with the detergent. I had to put my high heel down on this one.
For what it's worth, I will leave you with a bit of advice, if you are contemplating whether or not to sign up for Birchbox, I would choose the latter.
Cheers to spending $10 on something that doesn't involve laundry or stinky perfume samples.
Today I am linking up with Fabulous but Evil.
