My Thoughts: Birchbox January 2014 box2:45 PM
It's been a while since I shared my thoughts on one of my Birchbox boxes but here's my thoughts on my January 2014 box. Let's just say you'll understand why I was happy with my January Ipsy bag.
I don't do much swapping on MakeupTalk but two of the items from the January box will eventually make it's way to my swap list.
Birchbox sample size: 0.1 oz / 3g
Sample value: $7.50
Full size: 0.24 oz / 7g
Birchbox sample size: 0.75 oz / 22 ml
Sample value: $3.52
Full size: 150 ml
Thankfully I received a mint tea, an English tea and a blackcurrant tea, all of which I can drink. Since I'm such a tea lover I have no complaints about the teas other than these are teas! Seriously Birchbox?!
Birchbox sample size: three bags
Sample value: $0.53
Full size: 20 bags
Birchbox sample size:1.2 oz / 34 g
Sample value: $9.37
Full size: 3.2 oz
Birchbox sample size: 0.03
Sample value: $3.70 (though it sells on the Paula choice for $5)
Full size: 0.3 oz
My box total value: $24.62 ($25.92 if I use the $5 value instead of the $3.70 value). Overall, Birchbox's January box was a big ol' box of disappointment and it looks like my February box isn't that great either. At least I have my points from this and that box to make up for it.
