You may remember hearing about the new Birchbox Build Your Own Gift Box that made its debut last week. It’s something people have been asking for for a while, and Birchbox finally decided to implement it! However, unlike the BYOB available in the SoHo store, this box contains full size products!
When I first heard about this, I decided I wasn’t going to do it. $55 is a lot of money that I just didn’t want to spend. However, the items looked great, I had a 20% off coupon, plus $10 in points.. So it was a no-brainer! I ended up spending $35 and received over $135 in products!
To build the box, you choose one product from each category: skin, makeup, haircare,fragrance, body and lifestyle. I debated for a while about which products to get, and ultimately settled on the products you see above.
Harvey Prince Hello Liquid Loofah, RV $24: I have samples of this perfume and love the mix of floral and citrus scents. Since I needed a new body wash, it made sense one that would pair perfectly with one of my favorite scents.
Marcelle Mini Waterproof Eyeliner Travel Kit, RV $18: I actually had this on my wishlist, so it was very exciting to see this as an option! I love eyeliner and these come in an adorable case. I love that all of these are deep colors, which is what I prefer over brightly colored liners. I’ve used these liners before and fine they are very easy to apply and long-lasting.
Harvey Prince Eau So Divine, RV $28: Being forced to pick from the fragrance category was not great since I already have my go-to fragrance, so I chose this HP one since it seems similar to Hello in that it combines floral and citrus.
12 Benefits™ Instant Healthy Hair Treatment, RV $21: This leave in conditioner mist protects your hair from heat and styling tools. I don’t style my hair, so that aspect doesn’t matter to be, but I love the way this smooths my hair and makes it look healthier.
Naobay Calming Face Toner, RV $16: The Birchbox description sealed the deal for me: “this gentle lotion rolls up an evening’s worth of skincare into a single formula. It removes makeup, cleanses skin, tones, and soothes all at once”. Is this the liquid form of my beloved face wipes? I’ll let you know when I find out!
MAKE Mercado Global x Opportunity Threads Zip Pouch, RV $30: I picked this bag because I love using bags to organize everything in my larger bag, especially when I travel. Plus, the colors are so beautiful!
Did you try the Build Your Own Gift Box option? What did you get? I hope Birchbox does this again in the future with new products!
