January 2014 Birchbox

Today I bring to you my monthly Birchbox!

Let’s get to it!

The theme for this month is “Go time”!  It is all about taking on more; more things to try, to conquer, to integrate into our lives.  I received 3 deluxe samples, 1 full-size product, and 1 Birchbox find w/ a coupon.


100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara: This mascara has an all-natural organic formula that is supposed to separate and gloss your lashes with fruit and black tea pigments.  Oat and wheat proteins are supposed to condition your lashes, helping them grow over time.  It should be a perfect mascara for sensitive eyes.  This mascara smells like berries.  It smells really good! Sample Size: .1oz/3g = $7.50; Full-size: .24oz/7g = $18.00

Harvey Prince Journey: This perfume smells amazing! The scent is a blend of Indian tuberose, Turkish cyclamen, Spanish mandarin, South African freesia, Japanese orange flower, Moroccan rose, Indonesian clove bud, French Bergamot, Lebanese Cedarwood, and Australian sandalwood.  It sort of has a spicy scent with a little bit of sweetness and florally.  It’s an exotic scent that makes me feel like I should be on a vacation! Very Yummy! This is definitely on my want list for summer perfumes!  Sample Size: 2ml = $2.20; Full-size: 50ml = $55.00

Nail Rock Nail Velvet Pack:  This is a neat item and I can’t wait to use it! It comes with one polish that is used for a solid foundation and a pot that contains a textured topper.  Mine is a purple/maroon color that  makes your nails feel like velvet!  You can also get glitter, nail sequins, or nail caviar!  This was the full-size product that I received that retails at $6.99.

Serge Normant Dry Conditioner:  I am SO excited to try this product.  I have never heard of a dry conditioner before receiving this in my box.  You are supposed to apply it to the bottom half of your hair on day two in order to keep it conditioned and soft!  Sample Size: 1.2oz/34g = $9.38; Full-size: 3.2oz = $25.00.

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion with Clary Sage:  This is another product I was excited to see! I love Burt’s Bees and love trying their products!  This lotion is very hydrating and smells really good!  It is supposed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and is their best anti-aging face lotion.  The best part about it is that it is non-greasy!  This sample came with a $3 Off coupon that I will definitely have to take advantage of!  Sample size: .25oz/7g = $2.50; Full-size: 1.8oz/50g = $18.00.

Overall Opinion:  This was a great box to start out the year and I love all of the products I received!  I paid $10 for this box and the total value of what I received is $28.57!
