Birchbox Unboxing + Review - January 2014


Please excuse my excitement. I just can't help but squeal with joy when I find that glorious pink box in my mail. It took freaking forever to get here this month. Usually I get them around the 10th or so but this one got held up for some reason.

Oh well, it didn't kill me...

As always, there is an info card greeting you as soon as you open the box. This month's theme is Go Time and it's all about motivation and starting off the new year right. The card also contains the information and pricing on all the products featured in your box.

The sticker is new. If you don't already know Birchbox has a new contest going on that they've named subscriber Sundays. Check out all the details here. Grand prize is a $1000 shopping spree!

Now onto the goodies....

So far so good..

 Ruby Wing color changing polish in kitten heels

I was really excited to try this out, so of course it was the first thing I played with. It starts off this crazy bright fuchsia (which is not a color I am fond of) and is supposed to morph to a 'rich magenta' in the sunlight. So I took my booty out into the frigid cold to see just how awesome this would be....

Yeah Not so awesome. Maybe its just me, but I can't tell any difference. Bummer. On a positive note though, I do like the polish formula. It goes on smooth, only needed 2 coats, and dried fairly quickly.

 100% Pure fruit pigmented mascara

The package is super cute isn't it? Fruit pigmented makeup is new for me and I was really surprised at the length of my lashes after application. Comes off easily to. My only complaint is the smell. Why would you sniff mascara, you ask? Because I'm a sniffer and I'm just weird like that. Haha. It smells like that god awful cherry fluoride at the dentist office.... weird. But I did really like this product so I guess I can get over the smell factor. After all, its not like I can sniff my own eyelashes...

Paula's Choice Resist C15 Super Booster

I'm really excited to try this out. It says it brightens your skin, reduces brown spots and stimulates collagen growth. I like the smell and the way it feels on my skin but I haven't had it long enough to tell if it works or not.

Ojan Damage Reverse Deep Conditioner

I freaking love this! Its a pre-shampoo treatment and it smells awesome. Left my hair soft, shiny and frizz free!

Reviver Deodorant Wipes


OK whoever invented this is a genius. A reusable cloth that you swipe over your clothes or hair to remove odor... amaz-balls! It works wonderfully and is going to become a constant must have in my purse.

Each box also came with these awesome little cards to motivate you. I've pinned mine up around my laundry room.

so overall, This months box was a hit with me. I always love the variety of product and for $10 a month, its an awesome value. Now i am eagerly awaiting the February box... I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some valentines goodies!!
