Why I cancelled my Birchbox after just 2 months

So... a couple of months ago I decided I wanted to trail a beauty box subscription. After having a little look into my possibilities I chose Birchbox. I only did the 1 month payment as I only wanted to trial it out.

My first box 'April Box' came very quickly and I wasn't disappointed - I just felt the product sizes were a little small and some of the products I would probably never usually use. --but that is not necessarily a bad thing.


Aprils BirchBox
I wasn't unhappy with this box at all/ The mascara is great as is the 'marsk' eye shadow. I know it's all about having lots of different samples to trial out - but I feel some of them are just too small to really trial properly. 

This was the extra offer they were doing -- basically a 2 for 1!
I love the eyebrow pencil - I use it everyday!!-- but that is about all I have utilised so far from this box. (not the end of the world as it was free!!)

May's BirchBox
I like the texturizing hair spray from this box and also the instant primer I have find works quite well. The Marcelle makeup remover is UHHMAZING!! it literally gets every last bit of make up off, and it is very gentle on the skin - I often have issues with makeup removers but this one I will certainly be buying when it runs out! The 'cowshed' hand cream is lovely and has a gorgeous scent to it - perfect handbag size! Finally the benefit 'they're real double the lip' lipstick is pretty good too -- it applies well and has a built in lip liner which is an added bonus!  

The May box was by far my favourite I use most of the items.

The reason I will not be re subscribing is that I found there to be lots of similar products received and the sizes of some are disappointing. Another reason I will not be resubscribing to BirchBox is that I can't really afford it at the moment - unfortunately my bank balance says no! 

In the future I might subscribe to a different beauty subscription box - also if I can afford it! 

Let me know what you think of BirchBox or any other beauty subscription box you are subscribed to. I'd love to know in the comments!

  1. I've never had any of the beauty subscription boxes, as I don't want to be paying for products that I might not use! They are a really good idea though and some boxes sound great!xx

    1. Yeah, I thought that before I ordered birchbox. I wouldn't usually use probably most of the products recieved, but as I have them I will use them up eventually. Yeah, when money allows me I want to trial one of the more expensive sub boxes as they look more exciting! Xx

  2. I've never purchased a beauty subscription box before to be honest and I don't know if I ever will but I am very much into books and I know that there are book subscription boxes out there so that's something I'm going to try. Can't go wrong with a book ;)
