This month Birchbox partnered with Cynthia Rowley and put some of her favorite things in it. I quite liked the changing color scheme. Hot pink is nice but the aqua tissue paper was a fun change.
* Almond Apricot Kind Bar
* Zoya Touch Collection Polish in Pandora (mini .25oz| full size .5oz $8)
* Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Use Dry Oil (10 ml| full size 50ml $29.50)
* Redken Shine Flash Glistening Mist (2.1oz| full size 4.4oz $17)
* Philosophy Purity Cleanser (1oz| full size 8oz $20)
Technically the Redken size is a retail size and these usually go for $5 per ULTA's site. Even though there aren't any true full size items in this box, I'm pretty happy with it. Pandora is pretty much the one polish from the Touch collection I wanted to buy so I'm glad to have a bottle (albeit mini) of it. The Kind bar is going to get eaten soon and those are usually at least $1 at the store individually (not your av-er-age granola bar). The Philosophy Cleanser is similar to the 100 point cash ins at Sephora and great for travel. Especially with shipping included, I think this box is well worth the $10.
