I received my very first Birchbox this month – Woo Hoo! I was so excited to get this little goodie box and I am already looking forward to next month’s surprise.
If you aren’t familiar with Birchbox let me introduce you… it’s a monthly home delivery of high-end beauty, grooming, skincare & lifestyle products that are chosen specifically for you based on your interests & needs (via a profile). Some are sample size, others full size depending on the product. It may include products for your daily routine or for when you want to get all glammed up. Some luxe namebrands and others are up & comers. You can change your profile & interests at anytime to include your skin type, color, products you love, what you are interested in trying and your style. If you loved the sample so much you want to purchase the full size product you can in their online store – which has a rewards program. (much like Ulta & Sephora, which I seem to accumulate points rapidly but hey! it score free stuff!)
If that’s not enough, you can gift Birchbox (which is how I got my subscription because I have amazing friends & clients). You can do a monthly basis or a 3 or 6 month plan ($10/month) which I personally think is a fantastic idea for bridesmaid gifts! It’s the gift that keeps on giving-what girl doesn’t want a box full of makeup surprises? There is even a “bride box” which is a fun shower gift for the bride-to-be full of samples in preparation for her big day!
They even have a men’s box that includes grooming products and lifestyle accessories (think socks & tech devices).
There are a few other similar programs to Birchbox like My Glam, Glossy Box & Beauty Army which I haven’t personally tried but I’d love to (hint hint).Each one is a little different with their brands & personalization so I encourage you to check them out & decide which one you like the best. I’d love to hear about your experiences with Birchbox or another make-up subscription service! What’s your favorite beauty product?
