Birchbox and Vogue need no introduction on their own, but a beauty subscription box that results out of a collaboration between these two has all my attention!
Vogue is celebrating its 125th Anniversary this month and came up with its own shade of rose, termed “Vogue Rose” – a beautiful yet subtle peachy-pink shade of rose. Not just this – Vogue had amazing brands create limited edition products for this particular box in the given shade.
Now, its one of the best beauty subscription boxes that money can buy honestly! Right from the packaging, to the brands being chosen, the creation of a new shade of rose for themselves, having limited edition products cocktailed from the chosen brands – its simply mindblowing!
Plus anyone can buy this box. You don’t have to be an existing Birchbox subscriber to grab this, just like I did!
I loved the pretty & sturdy Vogue rose box and how nicely the contents came packed.
Each box has a card with a note from the Vogue Beauty Director & also lists snippets on all the products in the box. There is also a special coupon to 1-year subscription of Vogue magazine at just $15.
Now on to the products in the box…
CHARLOTTE TILBURY INSTANT MAGIC FACIAL DRY SHEET MASK
Full size, $22
The one product that made me go buy this box! As a sinusitis sufferer, sheet masks are not my thing and this dry mask is known to deliver amazing results. Its trusted by leading celebrities for an instant glow.
Reusable upto 3 times and comes with ear hooks to cling on.
HERBIVORE ROSE HIBISCUS COCONUT WATER HYDRATING FACE MIST
Full size, $32
An Indie brand that has been making waves recently in the skincare arena. I have been wanting to try a couple of products from them including this and I’m glad this box has one.
EARTH TU FACE BALM
Full size, $68
This one product alone covers the cost of the box! This is a handmade brand by two sisters and contains immortelle and rose extracts.
OUAI ROSE HAIR & BODY OIL
Travel size, $9
Another brand I have been wanting to try. A light, rose scented oil suitable for both body and hair.
AERIN ROSE LIP CONDITIONER
Full size, $28
A lip balm with a subtle rose scent and all natural ingredients.
RMS BEAUTY LIP2CHEEK in VOGUE ROSE
Full size, $36
RMS Beauty is a renowned natural beauty brand with a great line of makeup. A specially curated shade of Vogue Rose in this box that can be used both as a cheek and lip color.
JINSOON NAIL LACQUER
Full size, $18
Yet another special curation for the Vogue box in the shade Vogue Rose by Jinsoon. She is a renowned celebrity nail stylist.
This has to be my least favorite product in the box. The lid is loose on the brush holder (if you get what I say) and comes of easily every time I try to open the bottle. The shade too is rather a bright coral than vogue rose.
NARS SOFT TOUCH SHADOW PENCIL
Full size, $25
Third exclusive creation just for the box! Its a beautiful champagne shade and would work great on its own or as an eye shadow base or highlighter.
Let’s get into the math a little…
Cost of the box – $68
Value of products in the box – $238 (7 full size, 1 travel size, 1 discount coupon)
COUPON: Code TAKE15 gave me 15% off the box. You should try too if it works for you.
Birchbox accepts international credit cards for purchases on their website.
Birchbox subscriptions auto-renew every month once you are subscribed, cancel anytime. There is a Birchbox Men variant too.
You can shop for beauty products too apart from the boxes and they offer free shipping on orders $50 and above.
I am so glad I chose to buy this limited edition box loaded with full size & limited edition products. Plus I am such a sucker for rose fragrance.
You get about 4 times worth products for what you pay and every single product is usable. This has to be my best beauty subscription purchase ever!
Look forward to more such amazing subscription boxes from both parties!
