So…has everyone heard of Birchbox yet? I first learned about them in January of this year. This is by far my favorite product/find of 2011. Based on an initial survey that you take about your hair/skin type coloring, preferences, etc. you receive on a monthly basis 4-5 high-end beauty samples. It is essentially a mini present in the mail to yourself every month. I love, love, love trying out new products, and Birchbox is the perfect way to try them without spending a ton at Sephora/Ulta on products that I don’t like or don’t work with my skin.
There are quite a few other competitors out there now that offer a similar subscription service, but from my experience with Birchbox, I would recommend skipping them and just going with Birchbox! (Unless you are outside the US, in which case I would refer you to Fleur de Force’s review of Carmine.)
This month, my Birchbox was exceptionally wonderful! I received the following products in my Birchbox:
- LaROCCA Champagne and Shimmer Acai Sugar Polish
- Zoya Nail Polish in Noel
- Klorane Soothing Eye Makeup Remover with Cornflower Water
- Oscar Blandi Jasmine Protein Mist
- Chuao Chocolate Bar: Firecracker
I haven’t had a chance to try any of these new wonderful samples yet, but once I do, I’ll post reviews of the products.
In the meantime, there is some news in the Birchbox world! Now they are going to have Birchbox Man, which I can only assume is Birchbox for men. :) If you go to their website, you can sign up to get emailed alerts. You should check it out!
