Ok, firstly I love the peacock feather design and the fact that they seem to be sticking to the drawer version of the box.
But oh boy are the contents awful. It feels a bit like they were clearing out some old stock and threw some random bits together.
💄Amika Dry Shampoo
💄Nuxe Creme Prodigeuese moisturiser
💄Beauty Protector Blonde Shampoo
💄OCC Lip Tar Primer
💄Bbrowbar Brow Pencil in Cinnamon Spice
Yes, you read that right, two different types of shampoo. In the same box. Clearly the hair care stock pile needed a clear out.
Then there’s yet another moisturiser. Yes I guess it’s useful but hardly a luxury treat. And I pretty much get one every month.
The eyebrow pencil is completely the wrong shade – way too dark, the blonde shampoo is at least in the right direction.
Finally the Lip Tar Primer – I use a lipbalm under my lipstick but this gloop doesn’t fill me with confidence. According to the lovely women in my WhatsApp group it’s a complete nightmare to use and a waste of time.
So thanks Birchbox for a box full of random stuff from your storeroom. I filled in a beauty profile questionnaire but it seems that it was thrown directly into the bin.
To be completely honest Birchbox has been flailing around for a while now. I don’t know what’s going on in their HQ but they definitely need to pull their socks up as there are plenty more beauty boxes out there just waiting to steal their customer base.
