Birchbox costs $10 a month, and for each product you review you get $1 in points in their shop. This month they were having a promotion where you could get a free Smith and Cult lip gloss with your subscription (a $22 value).
You can see here I am missing a sample, there was supposed to be a Coola product in this box, and normally I contact customer service about these things, but I don't really care for Coola products, so I don't think I'm going to bother, especially because I got the Smith & Cult lip gloss.
This month Benefit revealed their new brow line, and I think every subscriber got a gimmebrow. I love the old gimmebrow, and the new packaging looks nice. I don't think the packaging change was really necessary, and I'm interested in how the formula differs.
Smith and Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer $22 value
Benefit Gimmebrow in Deep Full Size $22 0.03 oz $7.20
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray Full Size 8.5 oz $44 1 oz $5.17
Whish Shave Cream with Vitamin K Full Size 5 oz $24 0.75 oz $3.60
Verdict: The retail value of this box was $44.47 including the Smith and Cult gift with purchase, and excluding the missing Coola product.
