Birchbox Points – Clear ‘Em Out

My initial six month Birchbox subscription came to an end in June, and I had quite a few points saved up as a result – a little over 400 ($40). I knew from the beginning that I wanted to save them up and then splurge a little at the end of my sub – and when a 20% anniversary code landed in my Inbox, I knew it was time.

I love a good discount order. $5.19 total? I’ll take it.

My order arrived yesterday, and although I was disappointed to see that the Mystery Sample Pack was comprised of a tiny bar of hotel room soap and a perfume sample, I’m thrilled about the other two items.

I’m sorry, but I can’t even with that soap. The Jouer Matte Moisture Tint is amazing, as I expected. It’s probably a little too light on the coverage side of things considering how bad my skin has gotten, but with a heavier hand and a lot of buffing out, it looks fab.

The Yes To wipes are a standby. I’m not a huge wipes fan, but these are the right combination of soothing and medicated for my oh-so-crappy skincare woes.

How about you – are you a points saver or a splurger?
