What’s in a Birchbox?




Beauty junkies and cosmetics experimenters, rejoice!

I first heard about Birchbox on the book from my friend, Terra. It goes a little something like this: Sign up for Birchbox and create your beauty profile. For $10 a month, you receive a pretty little box stuffed with 4-5 deluxe samples of skincare, makeup, haircare, body, and fragrance products. Good products, from reputable brands like Laura Mercier, NARS, and Stila, just to name a few. You give the samples a try, and if you hate them, no harm no foul. But if you love them, you can purchase full-size versions directly from Birchbox (with free shipping on some products from your box if you buy within 30 days) and rack up loyalty points for each purchase, which add up to big discounts on full-size products. You can also earn loyalty points by referring friends through email, and rating the products in your boxes. Cha-ching!

Even if you’re not a cosmetics hoarder, you can still benefit from the Birchbox experience. If you’re new to the beauty scene and just aren’t sure which products to purchase {the options can be overwhelming} it’s a great way to try before you buy!

  1. What a great box of goodies! I get BeautyFix. It’s quarterly, $50 and very similar, but you get a mix of samples and full-sized items.

  2. I’ve been wondering about this Birchboxes. It will be interesting to see your posts on them in the months ahead and see if you think the $10 monthly charge is worth it for the things you get. I’m so nervous about getting things that I’ll have no real use for. I’m not a huge beauty junkie so I could see a lot of it just sitting around taking up space. – Katy

  3. I saw these a while ago on another blog. Such a great idea. Unfortunately they don’t post to Australia. And Nars and Stila prices are so inflated over the counter here it’s not funny. Thank goodness for internet shopping.
