It’s been a good week for mail! I just got my December 2013 Birchbox in!
I know I’ve already posted the preview of what I was getting, but I wasn’t able to give estimated values. So, let’s go through the list again with the values!
•BORGHESE Splendore Brightening Makeup ($30)
•Embryolisse Lait-Creme aka Le tiny fancy French creme ($1.87*)
•Lulu Organics Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder ( $1.35***)
•Sumbody lip balm ($8****)
Total value of $43.22! I’m not complaining since I only paid $10/month and received four times that, but I am a bit surprised. I was anticipating to receive a bigger sample of the Embryolisse creme. I was also hoping the hair powder sample would be a bit bigger. 0.5oz would have been a nice size sample (instead of 0.18oz).
However, I was pleasantly - very pleasantly - surprised that the Borghese ‘sample’ I received is full size! According to Birchbox, it is $30/1oz and that’s the same size as the sample. It’s always, always, always sweet to score a full size product. Especially when that product alone is three times what you paid!
*Full size product values at $28/75ml. Sample size is 5ml.
**Full size product values at $12/6 twistbands. 1 twistband received.
***Full size product values at $30/4oz. Sample size is 5g (0.18oz)
****Full size product values at $32/4 lip balms. 1 lip balm received.
