I just took a peak on my Birchbox account at what my October Birchbox has in store for me upon arrival (which should be today btw). I did in fact get chosen ton receive one of the highly coveted Goop Birchboxes and after watching the sneak peek video I was so excited! The products featured look amazing! Then I saw what I would be receiving…
Where’s my sample of Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss and Faux Cils Mascara? Where’s my DDF Wrinkle Resist Pore Minimizer Moisturizing Serum? Where’s my Supergoop? And the most pressing question of all: Where the f*ck is my Essie?
I really expected this month’s box, partnered box with Goop.com, to have the best of the best or at the very least the products highlighted in the monthly video. A LUNA BAR!? No thanks Birchbox and Gwenyth Platrow can stick it up her ass. I’ll walk to walgreens when I want a LUNA bar; I don’t want it included in my monthly subscription that I pay for to receive cosmetics.
Once again, I’m disappointed with my Birchbox and I havent even received it yet. (It could very well be sitting in my mailbox right now though) I can only hope that my GlossyBox won’t disappoint. I received my shipping notification email from GlossyBox and when I tracked my package, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is closer than I expected. GlossyBox only sent me my email this morning, but my box was shipped on the 12th.
That means I should have my very first GlossyBox by the end of the week! Be frightened, Birchbox. You’re on the chopping block, for real. There’s a few other monthly cosmetic subscription box services I’ve been researching recently and I might just have to kick Birchbox to the curb and sign up for another service.
I’ll have a full review of my October Birchbox up soon (hopefully by the end of the night). I’ll also have a full review of my GlossyBox goodies posted asap.
Thanks for reading and my apologies for all the expressed anger. BIRCHBOOOOOX [shakes fist in the air]. Love, GK
