The product I'm sharing this week is definitely a game changer in the world of beauty. I was first introduced to Birchbox over a year ago and once I found out about it, I felt like I needed to share it with every woman I knew. It's that good.
Ok, so what exactly is it? Birchbox is a subscription service that sends you a little box of beauty samples and other goodies right to your door each month (for only $10/a month! What?!). Birchbox sends samples from top brands like Benefit, Smashbox, Oribe and other luxury beauty brands. I don't know about you but I love trying out new beauty products but I don't love paying high prices for something I've never tried.
Each Birchbox comes with about 5 or 6 items that are customized to your skin color, hair type and other personal features. How does it know what colors to send? You'll fill out a questionnaire when you first sign-up. During this questionnaire you can even tell them what kind of samples you'd like!
Over the many months of beauty sample heaven I've definitely found some keepers. Quite a few products have been purchased in the full-size and added to my daily routine. But I will say, some of the samples last a good while! The nice thing is that if you find sometime you love, you can go purchase the full-size right at Birchbox.com.
If you like beauty samples and think getting cute little boxes of goodies in the mail is fun, Birchbox is right up your alley. Who knows, maybe you'll find a new beauty staple before your big day!
