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

No matter what you need them for, you will always need hair ties. Inspired by the bright colours of this months box, these pom pom hair ties will add a colourful finishing touch to any hair style.
Well that’s it, another month over, and another Birchbox delved into. I must say, even a year later, I still love getting my monthly subscription boxes. I try to avoid spoilers as much as I can so that I am always surprised when I get to open them.
