Tiny But Good Value

Birchbox on May 2020

I got this subscription wanting to try new face care and new beauty products I wouldn’t normally buy.
I liked the idea of being able to choose some items and the personalized quiz to help them pick items for you.
I was worried I had read a lot of bad reviews about this box and decided to take a chance.
Now the number one problem people seem to have is that the product sizes are very small; while I do agree that they are small there is a reason.
For example in my April 2020 box I received
Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment
Full bottle valued at $85.
The bottle I received was very small only .17floz.
But what you have to keep in mind is that a full bottle is only 1oz of product. Doing the math this would value this tiny bottle for $5.
I would say my entire box (which came with one full sized product) would be $44.49. A good value when I only spent $15.
The full sized product I received was Lipstick Queen which you can buy at Walmart for $12.49.
Nearly most of the cost of my box.
This box is good for trying new skin care items and just a good treat for yourself.
The box itself is beautiful and I plan on using it for storage.
I had read another reviews where someone’s box arrived wet.
My box was in a sealed cardboard box which was also in a sealed plastic bubble wrap package. I believe they have changed the way they do things...
