My Gossip Girl Birchbox Arrived!

I was so excited when I found out that this month's Birchbox was going to be Gossip Girl inspired! Gossip Girl quickly became one of my favorite shows thanks to the Twitter chats and the good looks of Chuck Bass (a.k.a. Ed Westwick). The products selected are to help give you the chicest brunch look as a Manhattan socialite (or pretend to be). Overall, the box was an improvement. There were definitely bigger samples this time.

Didn't really get the whole yellow tissue paper thing... I received:

  • Arquiste Flor y Canto perfume sample (full size $165) - Meaning opulent white floral which is a fresh blend of sweet blossoms inspired by an Aztec festival in 1400. It was a little strong for my liking but very cool history lesson.
  • Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream (.5 fl oz sample/$19 full size) - This youthfulness anti-oxidant cream with orange pulp leaves your hands silky smooth and protected. I'm always down for another hand cream!
  • Ojon damage reverse Restorative Conditioner (1 fl oz/$25 full size) - I actually received a full size of this shampoo and conditioner in my Sephora mystery sample gift bag. I'm almost out of the conditioner so good timing! 
  • FusionBeauty LipFusion Balm in Clear (Full size $22) - This lip conditioning stick has SPF15 and gentle plumping formula. Just like hand creams, I can't get enough lip balm products. I thought it was interesting that it was clear since I like to add a little color to my lips. I'll keep ya posted!
  • Extra: Gossip Girl themed note card "xoxo" - I wish there was more than just one!
Did you select a Gossip Girl themed box this month? What did you get?


  1. Omg!!! How the heck did you get this so soon!? Mine still hasn't shipped! :(

  2. For some reason I thought the box owuld be more exciting.....

  3. Mine shipped today! I am so, so excited.

  4. It's a great theme for a box (the UK equivalent did an Eco them e this month, so it's nice to see them branch out).
    Let us know how you get on with the products.

  5. I don't get Birchbox, but that one sure looks fun.

  6. I am hopelessly addicted to lip balm! I'm a Fresh girl, but am always willing to try something new!

  7. ahh can't wait for mine! It will be my first one, hoping it comes tomorrow :)

  8. I got mine yesterday, and it was my first box. I got the Algenist Eye Renewal Balm, Color Club Nail Polish in Disco Glam, Dr Jart Waterfuse BB Cream, and Ojon Shampoo.

  9. I was lucky I got the ojon volumizing hair conditioner, the stiller sparkle waterproof liquid eyeliner, hair tie, bb cream, note card and bvgaria perfume!

  10. I agree about the size of the samples. That was def an improvement, but i guess i expected more. We got the same box

  11. I'm a sucker for anything GG related! I WISH I would have been a member this month!
