Birchbox - May 2018 | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

When I received this box, it was $10/month (I signed up for six months) so I will base my opinions off of $10 instead of the new $15.

What is Birchbox?: Birchbox is the original subscription box, and it's still going strong. Birchbox sends anywhere from 4 to 8 products a month (full size, deluxe sample size, and sample size) and you can review your items each month for 10 points/item plus extra points for sharing your box on Social Media. You can also get additional points for getting a yearly subscription or getting referrals. Every 100 points you earn is $10 to use in their shop. Now on to the box!

How Much is Birchbox?: Birchbox is $15/month if you sign up monthly, $14/month if you sign up for six months (billed up front), and $13/month if you sign up for a year (billed up front). This is a jump from $10/month previously.


First Birchbox back after not having it for a WHILE. Man, those samples are small.


The box is cute, though.


Info card.


ARROW Enhance Waterproof Eye Brightener ($10.00) - This tiny pencil is full size, hard to believe. It's meant to put in your waterline and make your eyes look bigger, and it does! I love these types of pencils because they make every look just look better.

Winky Lux Glazed Lips Donut Lip Gloss (Coffee Glaze) ($10.71) - While this is a really good rose gold tinted lip gloss, it's a bit too sticky for my liking. I do like some of Winky Lux's products and I recommend trying their eyeshadow palettes!


Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle ($2.94) - If you're looking for a good heat protector, this is one. It's not my all-time favorite but it's solid.

Number 4 Jorur d'Automne Sugar Texturizing Spray ($4.49) - I hate the way texturizing sprays make my hair feel. My hair always ends up a little crunchy and a little too messy.

Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm ($3.25) - This is one of the best brands for lip products, their nipple balm is one of my holy grail products from Birchbox from years ago.


Swatches of Winky Lux and ARROW.


The value of this box was $31.39, which is freaking surprising considering how small the items themselves were. You'd think it'd be cheaper for Birchbox to make/buy and ship smaller boxes too, considering how small the samples tend to be.

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
