Recently, when I was in New York, I made it a goal to visit the Birchbox store. I was way too in the moment to remember to take pictures of the store itself, so thank you Google and Birchbox.com for the picture above. The store is logically set up, with a large selection and variety of products.
I took the opportunity to build my own box, which happens in the section toward the back of the picture, for $15. Building your own box means mixing and matching samples from different categories (Birchbox also offers a build your own men's boxes).
I doubled on products in the face category, because nothing in the makeup section really attracted my attention, but I was excited to see the Jouer Daily Repair Treatment Oil. I love everything I have tried from Jouer and I also like trying samples of face oils, so this was the perfect sample for me to pick.
I am always happy when Birchbox sends me hair products, so I chose the Miss Jessie's Super Sweetback Treatment. This deep conditioner comes in quite a generous size and is made for curly hair.
Even though I am not always the biggest fan of perfume samples, this Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanilla Extreme sample basically smells like expensive, strong, vanilla. A distinct vanilla, that doesn't smell like straight candy, is sometimes hard to find in a perfume.
Finishing off my box, I chose the Whish Exfoliating Body Wash in Coconut Milk. I love all of the Whish products that I have tried from Birchbox and this one smells super light and fresh, so this product seemed like a logical addition.
