birchbox review – deluxe beauty samples

Birchbox Review - October

Have any of you tried Birchbox yet? Birchbox offers up four to five hand-picked deluxe beauty samples delivered to your door for $10 a month – think Zoya nail polish, NARS Illuminator, and Stila Eye Shadow Pans. They offer yearly, monthly (opt out at any time), and gift subscriptions. A 3-month subscription would be such a fun and unexpected gift for the ladies on my Christmas list.

Birchbox is a great way to discover beauty products, without paying for full size products. I can’t tell you how many bottles of shampoo and face wash I’ve purchased over the years that I tried once, realized it wasn’t for me, and tossed aside. There’s also the element of surprise within each box – sometimes you don’t know what’s out there until it shows up at your doorstep in a beautiful brown Birchbox.

Birchbox Review - October

Birchbox was nice enough to send me their October box and now I see what all the hype is about. I have to admit, at the beginning of each month when everyone starts buzzing on Twitter about the goodies in their Birchbox, I feel a little left out. What’s even more exciting is that the samples you receive are based on a beauty profile quiz you take when you sign up, so your Birchbox will likely be different than your friend’s. It’s fun to swap reviews with your buds on your fav products.

If you find a product you love, pick up the full-size version at the Birchbox Shop – every purchase earns you Birchbox Points that can be used toward more full-size products. You can also refer friends to rack up more points.

The products mentioned in this post were sent to me by the merchant or their PR company. All opinions are 100% my own.
