This is what it says on the front card:
Birchbox Beauty Diaries
From your morning routine (sunrise yoga or snooze button and espresso) to your ice cream preferences (classic vanilla or rocky road with all the toppings), you've got a style and personality all your own. This month's Birchbox is about you: the order in which you try your products, your daily routine, the techniques you've mastered. We want you to spill big-time - consider it your beauty-tell-all.

I always open my Birchbox _____ (place). The first thing I do is: _____(verb). The sample I am most excited about is ______(product and brand). I love the ________(smell/look/idea) of the ________ (sample). I have to share _________(product) with ____________ (friend's name).
I think I'm going to fill out this tweet. To be honest I never know how to do the hash tag thing. I'm not an expert twitter person.
1. Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle
The card says, "Great for all hair types, this nourishing elixir locks in color, adds shine, and instantly detangles." Full-size $21.95 I actually just washed my hair, so I'm going to try this out right now. Wow on the bottle it makes a lot of claims: "instant detangler, thermal protector, uv protector, seals cuticle, smoothes hair, locks in color, adds shine, weightless, non-greasy, conditions, for all hair types, use daily." I like the packaging. I've never heard of it. It smells really good. It is a lotion texture. It wouldn't squirt out of the bottle, so I had to open it up. It seems like a regular leave-in conditioner to me.
2. Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face
The card says, "This mineral sunblock is infused with organic anti aging ingredients like evening primrose extract and borage seed oil." Full-size $32 This looks nice. I already have a facial sunscreen with SPF 30 that I wear everyday. I think I'll give this to a friend.
3. Joie Folle de Joie eau de parfum
The card says, "For its debut scent, the chic fashion brand created this carefree mix of mandarin, rose, and sandalwood." Full-size, $98 This smells beautiful! I love rose scents.
4. Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner
The card says, "Inspired by traditional Indian formulas, this velvety liner glides on easily and lasts for hours." Set of 4 mini pencils, $21 This pencil is very pigmented. I'm impressed. It also is practically tattooed on my hand now! It won't smudge off.
5. Birchbox Finds: Acroball PureWhite hybrid ink pen
It says, "We want our pens to be just as stylish as our accessories, which is why we love Pilot Pen's latest innovation, the new Acroball PureWhite hybrid ink pen. Acroball PureWhite offers vibrant ink colors and all the smoothness of a gel ink pen with none of the smudging or smearing. Plus, the color-blocked grip is comfy, on-trend and comes in a variety of gorgeous shades - this is no ordinary scribbler."
On the back it has a code to enter for a chance to win a trip to New York Fashion Week, and a coupon for $1 off a pack of the pens.
Inside the box the pen was already opened, so I don't like that just in case the ink dried out. It's a hot pink color. The grip feels nice. And the ink wasn't dried out. It just seems like an ordinary pen to me.
I don't feel that enthusiastic about anything I got in the Birchbox this month. It's just nice to get something in the mail, and I like making these blog posts.
