Birchbox and Glamour Subscription Box Review - July 2012 (Box 2 of 2)

birchbox glamour subscription box review

As I mentioned before,  I have two subscriptions to Birchbox because I love their samples and they typically have over 30 variations of each box, so I've only ever gotten the same box once. This is my second July box - it arrived a full two weeks after the first box - crazy!

The Box: Birchbox

The Cost: $10 a month including free shipping (Get a month free with a $110 annual subscription)

The Products: Deluxe and sometimes full size beauty and lifestyle items

Here's a break down of what's in the box:

Oscar de la Renta Live in Love perfume - Value $1.50

I'm not a perfume wearer, so I'll be putting this in the friend sample box.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser (3 packets) - Value $3

Would have loved a larger size, but these will come in handy for traveling.

Birchbox earbuds - Value?

Laura Geller Double Dipped Lipstick in Caribbean Kiss - FULL SIZE - Value $17.50

If I wore lipstick, I would be thrilled about this. Laura Geller is a great brand, and this gives you essentially 3 shades in one, as you can combine the colors and customize.  I'll be giving this to a friend.

This was my favorite item in the box. It's a small sample, but enough for a week's worth of use. I received the full sized Stila One Step Bronze in my last box, and this is a very similar product, but with a more flattering color for my skin tone.

The Verdict: I definitely like the first box I received a lot more. Still, I can't complain! For $10 I received over $20 worth of product. Of the products I'll actually use the value is closer to $5, but I'll review the products and earn 50 pts ($5) to use at Birchbox on full size products.
