I can’t seem to resist a limited edition box of any kind and this Birchbox Finds box was no exception!  I thought *maybe* I would be able to bypass it, but for $18 I knew I just had to go for it!

Birchbox Finds
The Box

All Birchbox shop orders ship USPS and my box took only a few days to arrive once I ordered it.  It came packed in a regular sized Birchbox box with a Finds wrap on it.  It much heavier than a regular Birchbox and was packed to the brim!

Limited Edition

Look at how full it was!  I was seriously impressed by the packing skills happening with this one.  The contents of the Limited Edition Box are announced at the time the box goes on sale, but I couldn’t recall exactly what was in it, so going through everything was fun.

Birchbox Finds
The Information Card

The Birchbox Finds box consists of some of the greatest buys hiding in the aisles of the local drugstore and they are using the collection to introduce their favorite new product discoveries.  Here is what was included:

~Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask ($7.99): This mask uses charcoal to purify pores and control shine.  I JUST used a different scrub today so I didn’t want to overdo it and use this too, but I think I am going test these out with B over the weekend.  He is always game for that.

~Bombshell Shine Shadow by LashBlast ($8.99): This is a silver shimmery cream shadow and I love it!  I probably wouldn’t have grabbed product on my own, but now I will for sure look for it in a different color during my next Target run (which will likely be tomorrow).

~CoverGirl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara ($11.99):  Ohhh, love.  I can’t speak to the staying power of this, but it for sure gave my lashes length which is basically what I look for.  And I am not sure that I have ever gotten a double wanded mascara like this, so I kind of loved that too!

~John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir ($9.99): I am all about having shiny hair so this will be an awesome one to try out.  My initial thoughts are positive, but I will need to use it a little more to see it can be a replacement to my pricey argan oil treatments.

~Nivea Kiss of Care & Color ($4.99):  I like this, but I don’t like love it.  I will for sure use it up, but I wouldn’t reach for it first.  I am happier with balms that don’t add color.  Maybe because I smear it on so much?

Nivea Kiss of Care & Color

~Rimmel London Stay Glossy 3D Lipgloss ($4.99):  Pink sparkly lip gloss?  what’s not to like here?  LOL!  The card says that one application lasts up to six hours but I will never find that out because there is no way that I personally can hold out that long before reapplying.

~Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure ($7.99): I have tried other colors of this polish and have always been very happy!  It’s a base coat, top coat and color gel polish in one.  And for someone like me who is annoyed about the time it takes to paint nails, this is awesome.

All totaled the Limited Edition: Birchbox Finds box had a value of $56.93!  A pretty sweet deal considering that the box itself was only $18!!  I would buy another Finds box (or any other Birchbox Limited Edition Box they came out with) without a doubt.  Tons of great products in here that I certainly wouldn’t have discovered otherwise.

    I would love to try the nail polish!

  3. Lisa

    I would love to try the John Frieda Nourishing Oil Elixir! I use that hair spray and finishing cream already 🙂

  4. Theresa H

    I love the mascara! I’m planning to buy that; I think the idea of the double wand is really cool.

  5. Theresa H

    Also, do you know how often birchbox releases boxes like this? I am a new subscriber to birchbox. Thanks!

  6. Lori

    The nail polish!

  7. Frances

    Interesting mixture of items!

  8. Kristen

    Oooh, the mascara is my favorite in this box. I am a sucker for trying any kind of mascara but the nail polish is a close second!

    The frizz ease I would love to try. 🙂

  11. Nikki

    I am looking forward to the Self Heating Mask. Thanks!

  12. Kayli Peckover

    My Favorite item in this box would have to be the mask because I love doing doing clay or the peel off masks all the time just love the way it refreshes my skin but I’ve never tired one that heats up and that’s really interesting to me cause I’ve never seen those before. Be awesome to try

  13. cindy

    Ummm The mascara!!

  16. Stephanie S.

    I’ve used the mascara but I really want to try the charcoal mask.

  17. Lissette

    I like the accessibility of the products. I can never have enough mascara so I am always happy to discover new ones in any of my boxes.

  18. jmd

    I think my favorite is the lip gloss. I found it so funny that usually Rimmel is known for mascara and Covergirl for gloss and they reversed it – guess they really want us to try the finds!

  19. Anne

    I used the charcoal mask for the first time this morning. I’ve never used a product like it before. Loved it!

  20. Meaghan

    Hope to win. Looks awesome!

  21. Sara Wagner

    My favorite item in the box is the Sally Hansen nail polish.

    This looks so awesome! I think I need this box!

  26. Lindsay

    I really want to try the mascara, but I love the lipgloss too!

  27. Bethsaida W.

    I would like to try the self heating mask!

  28. Nicole

    Sometimes I curse you and most of the time you just plain old save me money! I was able to go on birchbox, get this birchbox finds box ($18), the smashbox try it kit ($19) and the mystery sample pack ($10) all for 29 bucks (shipping was free ) using your feb2o code. Thanks!!

    1. Nicole

      I didn’t say which product, but I’m excited to try the mask!

  29. Brianna

    Ahh! I got one too and I love it! I got the Nivea in Sheer Berry, and it is my favorite item in the box. My nail polish was Pink a Card, like white-pink…not a good shade for me. I like that there were assorted colors so some things were kind of a surprise.

    1. Jennifer

      Now in Sheer Berry I might have been more into it??

  30. Crystal

    I’m so glad I read this review! It looks so much better than I thought it did orignally. 🙂

  31. Shana

  33. Emily k

    The masks! I haven’t done one in years!!

  34. Mallory B

    Ooooh, I think the mascara might be my favorite! I ALMOST bought that today, and now hearing that it adds length more than anything I might have to.

  35. megan

  53. Shawn

    What a great set! I would love to try the Biore mask

  61. Dawn

    Lip gloss! Always the lip gloss.

  62. Ashley C

    The bombshell mascara!

    The Biore heating mask was my favorite. I ended up buying it for $2.94 at Target! It was in the clearance section and I had a coupon! 🙂 Since it was the only item I really wanted I skipped buying this box, but I’d be more than happy if I won it!

  73. Janelle

    I would like to try the mascara!

  74. Jessica

    This was the first Birchbox I’ve ever ordered! I just received it today. The box was so small! I’m impressed at how it was packaged and I even tried putting everything back in the box and I could not figure out how to get it all to fit. I am happy about the different color options though, even though you know what you’re getting it’s still exciting to find out what colors you got.
