I’m just going to say this is a very clever service and you’re going to want to enter this giveaway. No one likes to buy a full-sized bottle of a product only to kick it to the curb after deciding it’s not worthwhile. Birchbox can help avoid that.
What is Birchbox
Birchbox sends 4-5 luxe beauty samples per month to you to try. These are products that the folks at Birchbox have tried and retried, so they’re not inclined to send you something they don’t love. You’ll receive anything from skincare to makeup to cult beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging gems. If like your samples and wish to buy full-sized products, you can do so through the online store. You’ll also earn points for every purchase and for providing feedback about the products you tried. These points that can be used toward more products.
Need some advice or inspiration? Birchbox magazine can show you how to get the most out of the products and tools in your monthly Birchbox.
How much is it?
Birchbox is $10 per month and you may cancel any time. Birchboxes ship for free. This is a fabulous gift idea!
How I heard about Birchbox
Interestingly enough, my first exposure to Birchbox was via my Keurig Ambassador program. A delicious brand from Green Mountain coffee called Cafe Escapes arrived with some information about and samples from Birchbox. The theme: pampering, obviously. Cafe Escapes has fabulous Hot Chocolate and Cafe Mocha flavor.
