October Birchbox Review and Coupon Code

Last month was a bit of confusion for my Birchbox.September was my last month of my 1 year subscription to I contacted them the beginning of September to let them know I wanted to go to a month to month account. Things REALLY got crazy then--- in the end, as always, Birchbox customer service was a bunch of rock stars and made everything right-- but my October box arrived SUPER late. Now that I am on a month-to-month account, I ordered the box for $10. I also was able to use coupon code BBJETBLUE which gave me a $10 store credit. For those that know about Birchbox, you are probably doing the math here. I gave them $10, and I got $10 back to use in the store. To me, that is pretty much like a free box. This was my October box:

In the box (as always, the links below will bring you to the site where we found our prices):

  • Shiseido Ultimate Power Infusing Concentrate, .33 oz: Wowsers! The retail on this is SUPER high! Even on Amazon, a 1 oz bottle runs at $64.99! The smell is nice and I have used it once and liked it! This little sample retails for $21.45!!!
  • Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing Spray, 2.5 oz.: Amazon per ounce value $4.07. This is actually one of my favorite items from the box. I love Toni & Guy products, and the smell is AMAZING! I love how it made my hair feel! I so wish the bottle was a little smaller and 2 ounces, so I could easily bring it in a carry on when I travel, but this is a really nice bottle! 
  • Skin & Co Truffle Body Milk, .40 oz. So these are two TINY foil packs. Like super small. Enough to maybe put on one hand (which is why they maybe included 2). I have never understood why companies send these super small samples, because I don't think I have ever purchased a body lotion based on a foil packet. I still have no idea if it works really well or not. Amazon per ounce value $1.58
  • Dr. Jart BB Beauty Balm, .20 ounces. This is one of my all time favorite beauty balms. I think it is the most effective one on the market today. The coverage is REALLY good, and it leaves your face looking amazing, so I am always happy to get more of them. I can actually get about 4-5 days worth of coverage from one little bottle. Amazon per ounce value $4.23. 
  • Lord & Berry Sparkle Black Mini Liner, .01 ounce. This may be the smallest eyeliner I have ever seen. It is large enough to use though, and I actually like it. It went on smooth and lasted the whole day. Great color too! Per ounce web value $3.24
Total value: $34.57 which is an incredible value given I SPENT $10 total and got back a total of $15 in shop credits! 

In the end, I got 5 products (6, but 2 were a repeat of the same product). So, I went in and reviewed those 5 products and got 50 points. In the end, I spent $10 and got 150 points ($15 worth) of credits for the store! That is an AMAZING deal!!!!

You can sign up for Birchbox for only $10 too. Make sure to use the coupon code and go back and review the products for $15 worth of store credit!
