January Birchbox: Origins, Stila, Juicy Couture

Here's the contents of my January Birchbox. The theme for this month's box is Clarity. I like my box a lot minus a couple small details...

What's in my January Box
Archipelago Pomegranate Body Soap
Full Size | $12.50
This soap smells really nice and has a pretty design It has pomegranate extracts. The scent is a little on the strong side for me though. Toned down, it would be perfect. I'm not sure I'll use it - I prefer body wash.

Juicy Couture - Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum
Full Size | $69-89
I've never been a big fan of Juicy Couture fragrances. Love their bottles though. I was still excited to see it in my Birchbox.

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
Full Size | $19.50
I've been wanting to try this for a long time and I've heard good things about it! I'm so glad I get to try it now. It's supposedly a good cleanser for both dry and oily skin which is great for me because I have combination skin.

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner
Full Size | $20
Another product I have wanted to try for a long time. I swatched this onto my hand and I couldn't rub it off at all. It seems like it has a lot of staying power. I got the color lionfish which is a brown sparkly color.

These types of natural bars aren't my thing. I've seen them at the store but have never been compelled to try them. The flavor I got was Cherry Pie. I had Mark try it and he did not like it at all so I don't think I'll be trying or buying them anytime soon.

Birchbox Magnet
A cute little bonus. It's on my fridge.

Overall I liked this Birchbox the most out of the ones I've received so far. I was really excited to get the Stila Smudge Stick and the Origins Face Wash. I really wish they didn't send food/drink samples though because I'm usually not interested in trying those things. I like Birchbox for the beauty samples. I will continue my Birchbox subscription for another couple of months at least so I can get a  really good feel for it but eventually I might want to switch to another subscription service.
