Birchbox Build Your Own Gift Box

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!
