Birchbox Open

Price: $10.00/month ($4.95 shipping),  Number of Items: 5

I was really excited to receive my birchbox today, I was expecting it to come later this week because shipping to Canada usually takes time.

Birchbox is a monthly subscribtion box that introduces customers to different makeup, skin care and hair care lines. With Birchbox, you collect a point for each dollar spent on the site, and every 100 points gets you $10 to use towards products. If you are interested to learn more click here, if you want to subscribe please click here as a referral.

This month’s theme is “say yes to adventure”, it contains a collection of items that inspire exploration and going out to do new things and the box is full of items you can take along with you.

What I Received:

1. Coastal Scents: Revealed 3 Eyeshadow Quad

Immediately I know I can use 3 of the 4 colours, the bright red shadow is definately not for me. I’ve purchased coastal scents shadows before so I know the pigments are great here. Full Size: $24.00 (20 shadows), Sample: $2.40 (the shadows are smaller than the palette, I’m assuming it’s 1/10th the size of the full product)

2.Naobay Oxgenating Cream Moisturizer


This cream has the yummiest smell, like a lemon tart!!!! (strange bc the ingredients are rosehip and almond, not lemon). Just smelling it now makes me hungry…The cream is 98% natural and good for all skin types. I’ve been putting this on my hand and it moisturizes so well. The description suggests also using this as a makeup base…good idea, I think I will 🙂 Full Size: $45.00 (50mL), Sample $18.00 (20mL)

3.Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo

Number 4

I really don’t like receiving a shampoo without the matching conditioner, so I was a bit disappointed when I saw only this in my box. How am I supposed to go on an adventure if my hair is super dry! haha. I think the image of the elephant is super cute and it smells pretty good. It is supposed to give you a deep clean which I really like, and you can use this as a body wash. Full Size: $36.00 (8.5oz) , Sample Size: $4.24 (1oz)

4.PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Moisturing Sea Salt Spray


I’m not sure what to make of this product. I do like the wavy look, but I’ve used a sea salt spray before and it made my hair look frizzy (my hair is naturally dry and curly/wavy) Not sure I’ll get much use out of this. I may try it a few times and see how I feel because I do like its delicious green apple smell. Full Size: $27.00 (147mL), Sample Size: $5.51(30mL)

5.Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

Skyn Iceland

I’m pretty excited about this product. I think this is supposed to be the “relaxing day after all the adventure” product because it helps firm and de-puff the eyes. I don’t have issues with either of those, but a cooling gel after a stressful day is always well received by me. Plus it’ll make at home spa day even more luxurious. Full Size: $33.00 (pack of 8), Sample Size: $4.13 (1 pack)

6.BONUS! Emi-Jay Hair Tie


I think this bonus is very cute! I love these style hair ties and since I refuse to cut my long hair, it will be in good use this summer. Set of 5: $13.00, One Tie: $2.60

My Thoughts

The Total Price of all my samples is $36.88. I’m really excited to try all these products. I am most excited about Noabay moisturizer.
