Fun Find: Birchbox

13 May

Have you heard of Birchbox?

“Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets, without any fuss. Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch.”

I recently saw an article describing it in a magazine I picked up and decided to give it a shot. You have to sign up to be eligible to receive the monthly boxes, but it does not take too long! In fact, the way Birchbox marketed themselves is quite clever; you must wait to be eligible for the suscription, but once you are eligible, you can expect the best in samples of high-end beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products. Normally, I am too indecisive or just dislike buying new makeup. I go with what I know and do not leave room for any changes. As a result, this is the best way to try new things. The best part is I don’t even have to leave home!

This month, Birchbox partnered with Gossip Girl. The box I received this weekend was quite fabulous!

The products inside the box were:

Nail Polish: Disco Nap by Color Club  – “Just in time for the summer, this metallic gold polish looks glam day and night.”

Waterfuse BB Cream: Dr. Jart + “think of the four-in-one moisteruizer, serum, sunscreen and skin perfecting tint as the (extremely stylish) Swiss Army Knife of your beauty lineup.

Kerastase: “Smooth this lightweight, fragrant serum through dry strands to add gorgeous shine.”

Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: stila – “Pearly shimmer meets intense pigment in this lasting liner. Better yet, the pen-like wand makes wiggle free application a breeze.”

The box was really good and worth the money. I can’t wait to try out all the stuff!

    I have been wanting to try BirchBox and you’ve made it sounds tempting! Getting mail is already fun, but imagine getting beauty supplies and products! Love!

      You couldn’t have said it better yourself! There’s something about getting stuff in the mail; it’s a feeling that’s indescribable.

      My favorite part about it is the sampling. I’m often quite skeptical about trying something new and shelling out lots of money if I haven’t tried it or been referred to the product. This is an innovative way to try new products out!
