Go Get Em Tigress

Here it is, my January Birchbox. I can say I'm not too thrilled about the beauty subscription once again. I am now shopping the beauty market for something more relatable to my liking.

Here's what I received in my box:

1. 100% Fruit Pigmented Mascara-$18
I wasn't very impressed with this mascara. The sample was of tiny size making it hard to use more then a couple of times. I'm also a mascara snob so if you aren't very picky you might be ok with this product.

2. Just Candlenut Body Creme-$35
The first thing that I noticed was the light scent of this cream. It is nice to not gain a headache when you put on a product. The downside was how oily the product left my skin. I immediately wanted to wash my hands.

3. Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk-$18
This is the first dry shampoo I have tried without a strong scent. It was almost odorless. Even Madison had me use it on her. I have other brands that I like better and that do not leave my hair with a white coating like this one did.

4. Nail Rock Glitter-$6.99
This is an item I have been wanting to try. The red polish and the red glitter is a perfect combo for Valentine's Day! The polish covered well and the glitter added the perfect touch!

The lifestyle extra for this month was Ahmad Tea London in assorted flavors-$7
I received Apricot Sunrise, English Tea No 1 and Lemon Vitality. I am not a black tea fan so I decided to try the lemon flavor. With my sinus and cold issues this week the lemon tea was quite soothing. The taste was decent and it is also a green tea which makes it my favorite.

How has Birchbox treated you lately? Have you made a switch?


  1. I may have to try this. Since I only use Mary Kay cosmetics, do you get enough of the other types of items for it to be worth it for me? <3

  2. I tried Birchbox for about a year, but just like you, it started to not be worth the $10 per month...so I cancelled it about six months ago. This box actually seems above average from what I'm used to! Glad you liked the nail glitter... I may have to try this!

  3. Has anyone tried Ipsy? Thinking about changing from BB to Ipsy if anyone has any opinions that would be awesome.
