January 2013 Birchbox

Purchased By Me

I held off on posting this earlier in the month when I first got this because I couldn't decide if I was truly disappointed with this box or if I was jumping the gun on judging it. For me this month it's a bit of both the box does not live up to my expectations or it's competition but I did end up liking some of it.
I liked the shampoo foils which were the "Beauty Extra" this month and the Oscar Blandi dry styles heat protect spray, but the rest was a bust for me. For the price I paid $10 it was a good box but they are so not keeping up with their competition. I didn't even save the box and or card this month to type it all out for you guys, I'm sorry!

I think I'll stay with Birchbox for just a little while longer but if they don't shape up I am going to be left with no choice but to cut them loose.

    1. I actually gave it away to a friend since I'm horrible with liquid but I'll let you know what she thinks!

  2. It's always a shame when you're expecting a nice surprise every month and it turns out to be a let down. I had a lot of those early in Ipsy's Glam Bags early on lol. Hope BB improves next month!

  3. I'm sorry it was disappointing! I definitely could use some heat protect spray for my hair.

  4. Everyone's boxes are slightly different each month. I think they do it by when you joined. My January Birchbox wasn't bad so I'm not cancelling quite yet.

    1. Yep I know, I don't think this box compares well to other boxes that were sent this month value or product wise. CS said the boxes are supposed to get better the longer you have been with them but I seem to have the opposite effect my first few boxes were great and since then not too good. I do like them for their point system and shop but they are going to need to step it up especially since you get more for your money with Ipsy.

  5. Birchbox seems to be getting worst. Seeing your monthly posts about it make me feel relieved that I cancelled my sub with them

  7. I didn't know that Birchbox was only $10a month? Would you recommend any other monthly beauty subscription?

    1. I wouldn't recommend BB at this point but Ipsy is also $10 (plus tax for CA and NC residents) and they have been really good these past couple months their site is Ipsy.com there is also Beauty Army for $12 a month I haven't tried them out but I have heard lots of good things about them too.

  8. I have read quite a few of your Birchbox roundups and this definitely looks like one of the least impressive boxes you have recieved. I would be disappointed, and while yes, you did only spend $10 on it, other monthly boxes you're subscribed to are the same amount of money and seem to be doing a much better job of including items that are intriguing and work extremely well. The Ipsy boxes seem better put-together to me, from what I've seen of them here and a few other beauty sites I frequent.

    1. Atm I'm not they used to be a lot better when I first subbed but it seems this past year they just haven't been able to keep up. If your looking for a makeup sub I would suggest trying Ipsy out they are $10 a month + tax too

  11. I stopped the beauty box thing a long time ago. It's more fun that it is beneficial. This box is pretty sad!

  12. I decided to cancel my BB again. I just really wasn't impressed at all. I think that Ipsy has really stepped up their game.
