What’s In My – January Birchbox

Well this has been a long wait!

If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that I usually post my ‘What’s in my” Glossybox and Birchbox posts within a few days of each other, usually the first couple weeks of the month.

This month however, that was not the case. I got my Glossybox pretty much the same time I do every month. I got my dispatch email, and then a couple days later, I got my box. Around the same time I got my dispatch email from Birchbox, and a couple days later, no box, about a week went by and still no box. I contacted Birchbox and asked them about it, and if they could send my a new box.

I will say the customer service from Birchbox was spot on. I sent 1 email, and got one back just a few hours later. I was told a new box would be sent out by priority mail and I would receive it within a few days. My box arrived about 4 days later.

The first thing I noted about this box is how good the packaging was.


Everything just fit so snuggly in the box, no waste, no excessive packaging. I love Glossybox in terms of products but honestly I can do without the excessive packaging and the paper shreds that come in each box. This one however was damn near perfect.

Lets take a look at the products
