I discovered Birchbox last year from watching youtube beauty gurus rave about it on their channels. I’m SOO glad that I checked it out. I’ve gotten some AMAZING samples in my monthly Birchbox packages; both brands that I know and love, and brands that I’ve never heard of. You can either sign up for individual monthly orders, or you can set up the auto-pay feature so that you get the monthly Birchbox automatically. I LOVE the fact that they give HUGE samples, so you can really try out the product before deciding whether you want a full sized version. I’ve also gotten full sized products as samples, which well exceed the $10 that you pay for the monthly subscription.
The pictures below show the November 2011 Birchbox.
Each month is themed, and it comes with a description of all of the products in the package. For example, this month it was all about holiday planning and gift-worthy samples. “Highlight skin with a luxurious body cream that adds the slightest sheen, and dress up nail with a festive polish…we’ve also included a beloved european face wash and a velvety concealer that doubles as an eye shadow primer. Even your tabletop gets a treat – chic letterpress coasters.” Birchbox.
Zoya – Nail Polish in Holly
“here’s one type of jewel we can afford: this emerald polish from Zoya’s holiday 2011 collection gleams up nails with a metallic finish.” Birchbox. ($8)
Avene – Cleanance Soap-Free Facial Gel Cleanser
“A european skincare that uses thermal spring water to soothe and soften skin.” Birchbox. ($18)
Minerologie – Ultimate Cream Concealer
“Made with finely ground minerals, this spot concealer hides under-eye circles and blemishes with zero cake-age.” Birchbox. ($16)
LaROCCA Skincare – Champagne & Shimmer Supreme Creme
“Shea butter and olive oil join forces to leave skin firm, supple, and ready to set off your favorite party dress.” Birchbox. ($35)
