I got my November 2014 Birchbox this weekend and I wanted to share it with you guys! I love watching/reading subscription box unboxings, but I tend to avoid the ones that I know I'm going to be jealous of, if that makes sense. It probably doesn't and when I tried to explain it, it made even less sense, so I'm going to leave it at that.
I went with the "standard" Birchbox this month; there was an option to get a special box that was curated by Buzzfeed, but since I love surprises, I went with the normal box. I did get to pick one of my samples, though!
This month, Birchbox partnered with (RED) for their normal box. (RED) exists to raise money and awareness for the global fight against AIDs, so it makes sense they would partner for the November/Giving-themed box. Admittedly, the only thing really "giving" themed with this month's box IS the (RED) partnership where Birchbox will donate $1 for every time a photo of the box is shared (and the mini Holiday catalog included with every box), but that in itself is pretty neat!
Overall, I got 5 samples and a bonus snack! I was able to review everything so I got 60 points this month, which is like $6 I can spend on whatever I want in the Birchbox store. Nice. Value-wise, my November box was worth about $25.07, which is 1.5x what I paid for the box. A win all around!
Thanks for reading! <3
