I just received my Birchboxes for January! Yes, I have two subscriptions, and would honestly start another if I didn't think I was becoming a little over obsessive. ;) There are lots of reasons why Birchbox is my favorite (be on the lookout for a post on why soon), but the number one thing is that the point system cannot be beat! The box only costs $10 per month and you can get a discount if you sign up for a year in advance (which I always do). So I pay closer to $9 per month. I always get at least 5 items in my box to review. For each item that you review, you get 10 bonus points which = $1 in rewards. So when you think about it that way, it's as though the box is only costing me $4 per month. Then I save my reward points until I get a 20% off coupon, which makes the points worth even more. In essence, it is then as though each item reviewed = $1.20 which makes the box cost me only $3 per month. Confusing, I know.
So here is what I spent "$3" on this month ;)
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
1.0 oz and 1 cloth

I received this absolutely YUMMY smelling mascara in my second Birchbox. I have too many mascaras to count, so I decided to pass this along to one of you!
