My Thoughts
When I first saw that Birchbox had collaborated with Women’s Health I have to say I was a little disappointed. Women’s Health is of course about keeping your body healthy, and whilst that’s great I prefer my boxes to focus on beauty rather then vitamin pills/food supplements. The products included are quite small and not of the usual size you’d expect with most Birchbox collections. It almost seems like Birchbox has given up – and it’s only January!
Unfortunately I probably won’t use most of the products included which is a shame. What do you think of January’s box? Do the product excite you? I love to hear your views!
