April 2011 Birchbox

After watching several YouTube videos and reading multiple blog posts on the company Birchbox, I felt that I had to try it out for myself.  For those who are unfamiliar with this company, you pay a monthly subscription fee of $10 and around the middle of each month Birchbox will mail you at least 4 deluxe size samples.  These samples are typically makeup, skincare, and perfume.  However, I do believe that some boxes may contain one food/drink type sample as well.  

Below are the products that were included in my first Birchbox, which I received during the month of April:

Each box contains a card containing information on each deluxe sample that has been included and the price of the full size product.  

1.  Juice Beauty - Green Apple Peel
" This organic peel doesn't mess around: natural fruit acids dissolve even the most tenacious dead cells for an immediately brighter, smoother complexion."  

Sample Size: .5 fl oz
Full Size: 2 fl oz - $45

Birchbox also included a mini sample of Juice Beauty's Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer:

2.  LIV GRN - Earth Eau de Parfum
" Made from biodegradable and sustainable ingredients, this lush scent is laced with jasmine and sandalwood.  Plus, ten percent of sales go directly to Global Green."

Full Size:  3.4 fl oz. - $60

3.  Lavanila, The Healthy Body Butter
" Made from all-natural shea and cocoa butters, this satiny cream is lighter than your usual butters - perfect for warm spring weather."
I was shocked when I saw this sample in the box, that is if you can even call it a sample. It is much larger than many of the lotions that I purchase to keep in my purse or to travel with. 

Sample Size:  2.75 oz
Full Size:  8.5 oz - $25

4.  Zoya - Nail polish in Jules
" Green is glam, especially when it comes to Zoya's super glossy lacquers.  This versatile metallic hue is your new spring do-to."
2 coats of the polish

Sample Size: .25 fl oz
Full Size:  .5 oz - $8

Birchbox also usually includes an extra/fun product in their boxes and this month was a very creative way of planting flowers...
