Anyway, on to my October Birchbox...
|The theme for this October was Prep & Finish, choosing products that help you with your beauty routine from start to finish.|
|Here's a list of the products I received. I have to admit, I wasn't super excited by any of the products I received as I've received the same types of products over and over for the last 2 months. I did speak with the rep I mentioned above and she gave the following advice (see my post on how to get more out of your Birchbox subscription).|
|Does anyone else get a little thrill out of opening a tiny package within their Birchbox each month?|
|Though the packaging for the Pangea Organics Mask sample doesn't list ingredients, you can see a list of ingredients Pangea does not make a habit of using!|
|I thought these were a cute touch. I haven't tried them yet, but I like having mints on me and the tin is cute. I've seen them before, but never bought them.|
Final Thoughts on October's Birchbox
I have enjoyed getting a box of samples every month, but I admittedly have been getting discouraged by the products I've received in the last few months. I've felt as though they were (at times) no bigger than samples you could get for free or for a couple dollars at the store. I've also seen a few repeat product types and brands. As I mentioned above, I brought this up during my conversation to the Birchbox rep and she had some advice on how I could potentially get better results from my subscription (see HERE). Am I going to continue my subscription? Yes, for now. I'm going to see what the rest of the year has in store for Birchbox and if, after taking the rep's advice on looking over my Birchbox profile a second time and changing a few things, I'm still not happy, I may not continue to subscribe to Birchbox in 2012. I guess we'll see! I'm hopeful that things will improve because I really do enjoy this service and I loved my Birchboxes in the beginning. I'm eager to feel as excited over boxes to come!
What about you? What did you get in your Birchbox and how do you like what you received?
