January Birchbox

Happy MLK Day and Inauguration Day everyone!!!

I hope you are enjoying the day and perhaps even giving yourself some time to relax. So what better time to check out Birchbox than on a relaxing day off from work?

My January box arrived last week and I wanted to share what I got. Every time I see that glorious box in my mailbox, I get excited like a kid on Christmas morning (who am I kidding, I get excited on Christmas morning even at 30!). I have found so many new, awesome products through my beauty subscription with Birchbox so if you like what you see and want your own box, click here.

Here are the products that came in my January box:
1.) 25 ideas to make this the best year yet – The tips range from beautifying tricks to lifestyle changes, plenty of options to make 2013 #mybestyear. You can find out all of the tips by following Birchbox on instagram (@birchbox), they post a new tip every couple of days.
2.) Reusable gift envelope – I got one of these in my November box too and just love the boxes. They are super cute and easy to fit a small beauty product or necklace. Valentine’s Day is coming up, maybe someone will get a special treat in one of these boxes.
3.) Harvey Prince Skinny Chic fragrance – This is my favorite fragrance I have received in a Birchbox (and not even because it promises to keep you feeling young, slim and beautiful…well maybe a little). It has such a clean fruity smell; when I wear the scent, I can’t quit smelling my wrists. Yummy!
4.) Beauty Extra: Juice Beauty Daily Essentials Organics to Go – This will be great to have in my purse on a long flight. The samples include cleansing milk, antioxidant serum and nutrient moisturizer. I just hope I can wait until a long flight to use the product. I’m crazy about skin care so I might be testing these products out this week!
5.) theBalm costmetics Put a Lid On It Eyelid Primer – This could not have arrived at a better time. I’m actually working on a makeup primer post for everyone, so I am thrilled to also add an eyelid primer into the mix. These primers are awesome and keep your eye shadow crease free. Stay tuned for a real review coming soon!
6.) Clark’s Botanicals Smoothing Marine Cream – This is an exfoliating moisturizer; such a cool product. I love beauty products that tingle because it lets you know it’s working. The tingle leaves your skin feeling so refreshed.
7.) Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo – So many ladies use several hair products a day, this is the perfect shampoo to remove product buildup. I recommend using the clarifying shampoo every few days, but I hear this Number 4 brand is gentle enough for everyday use too!

Are you a beauty junkie? Do you love trying new products? Then sign up for your own Birchbox here. Also, if you receive a Birchbox, I’d love for you to tweet me a pic of what you got in your box (@lindsaytolar).



  1. I've received my Birchboxes for over a year and some months are better than others. I also get Ipsy and love it. My one complain about Birchbox is I would like more makeup samples. I have a skin care routine I love so receiving skincare samples is kind of a waste unless they are moisturizers or oils. I would love more hair, makeup and nails. :)

    Your box is great!! I am loving the eyelid primer!

    Take Care,

  2. I have been looking for a good clarifying shampoo for a once-in-awhile hair saver, prior to deep conditioning - I might have to pick this one up to try! I love anything from theBalm too!


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
