Cashing in Birch Box Points

I received an email that some of my Birch Box points were going to expire.  Oh the horror!  I had looked a couple at times at Birch Box items but was not that excited about any one item that I wanted to use my points on.  Ughhh!

They had some suggestions for me and one of them was a Philosophy item.  Hmmm, I do like some of their products.  I did a search that came up with 29 Philosophy items, most of them were for face use.  I needed a new night cream, my samples I had received over the months from Target and Walmart boxes were running low.  So I cashed in 500 points to take $50 off Philosophy Miracle Worker Overnight.  Birch Box sells it for $68.

The Butter Box September

I do read other writers blogs for travel news and lifestyle information.  I stumbled on a review for the Butter Box and it offered a half off code for one box.  Everything looked good and had great reviews so I wanted to give it a try.  Usually scents from the Body Shop or Bath and Body Works give me a killer headache so I avoid those stores like the plague!  I was hoping for items that would not be too perfumed to use.  Fortunately Butter Box delivered!
