Long story short: you give them $10 a month and in return, you get a box of beauty samples. For some people, you probably think that sounds weird, that maybe it is a rip off, or that I am dumb for spending $10 on samples [which we're used to being free]. But it is so much more than that.
You fill out a "beauty profile" AKA your skin type, your hair situation, your style preferences, and your favorite types of products. They then put together a box custom for YOU and your answers and voila- it shows up at your door in about the cutest package you could imagine. For me, it may as well have been Christmas.
Now I'll be honest, I was drawn to sign up because I wanted nail polish samples (I envisioned a cute and teensy bottle)... and I didn't get any nail polish in my first box. But did I care? Not an ounce. I wanted to share the experience with everyone, so without further adieu, here is my first Birchbox encounter:
This seriously was such a delight. There is no other way to put it. Everything came packaged so cute, like a real present! And the products?? For starters- I've always wanted to try Juice Beauty and Benta Berry, but I seriously get nervous spending money on products I've not ever used before. To me, that is a lot of money if you don't know how it will work out. Now- I know both of these items will be worth the investment- and because they were in my Birchbox, they'll ship free.
Also, you all read about my love affair [and struggle] with cat eye makeup. Well, they sent me stickers that you just stick right on your eyelid. No worries about a steady hand, you just get a perfect look in seconds. I am going to use my Eye Rock tonight and I'll be sure to share photos this weekend!
As you all know, I travel like a ridiculous amount. And I was thinking I really should look for a mini bottle of one of my signature scents- Viva La Juicy. Low and behold, Birchbox read my mind and I got one. Add in some chocolate and free music? Seriously, worth every penny of that $10 monthly membership fee.
I would very much recommend signing up for Birchbox. If you have a few extra dollars and want to receive high-end products in your mail box [packaged like it's your birthday] then CLICK HERE and get started. I'm telling you, you will not regret it!
