It costs $10 a month and you know, that ads up. After thinking on it for a few minutes I decided this was something I was doing for ME! Gav and I can eat out one less time a month. I can buy one less clearance top at Target. Getting mail is the best, and surprises hand-picked for me... um YES! So I went ahead and signed up for the monthly subscription.
... and this past Tuesday I received my very first Birchbox! The company describes it as the best way to discover new beauty, grooming and lifestyle products. Receive monthly deliveries of top product samples from high-end brands.
I took pics to walk you guys through what it's like to get one. It is the surprise of Christmas and the fun of Sephora in one! So the Birchbox arrives in a pink packing box. Then this sturdy cardboard box is inside.
Inside the cardboard box are that month's goodies. The company has a monthly theme, however there are several versions of the box, so you never know exactly what you will get. It's super fun! This Month's theme was 'jet set.'
HERE's the link to learn more about Birchbox. I know this is my first one, but I am hooked. Do you receive Birchbox in the mail or My Glam Bag or any other beauty subscriptions?
Another thing I LOVED was the #Birchbox hashtag on instagram and pics by everyone else as received their BBoxes that day too. It seemed like thousands and thousands of girls posted pics of their boxes right then. There are quite a few variations of the boxes. Some people got a little travel bag instead of a Luna bar (jealous!) some people got a headband from ModCloth (SUPER JEALOUS!) but I still really loved what I got too. I can't wait until next month!
When you first are added to the list and sign up, you fill out a survey of your skin type, tone, favorite products, if you are trendy, more natural, etc. I think this is why they have variations of the boxes, but who knows!? I had heard about there being waits of months and months to get on the Birchbox list, but I only had to wait a few weeks. I totally recommend it for the instant excitement and happiness. Plus awesome products I would NEVER buy myself... but now maybe I will ...
