For a beauty samples and product lover, Birchbox is one of the best creations a girl could find! With a Birchbox subscription, four to five hand-picked deluxe samples are delivered to your door for $10 per month.
Brains meet Beauty: Co-founders Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp met at Harvard Business School and founded Birchbox with the goal of sharing the beauty's best products and insider tips minus the hassle! Through a personal beauty profile about your regimen, needs and product preferences, Birchbox curates a box of four to five luxe beauty samples that fit your routine needs and delivers them to your door each month.
As a beauty product-aholic, I love samples! Trial size versions of products are the ultimate way to test new brands or change up your daily or go-to product (and great for traveling!). I received my first Birchbox in January, which consisted of concealer, eye serum, a perfume, a mini nail polish and granola snack mix samples!
The arrival of my Birchbox in January was such a lovely treat that I decided to continue my monthly membership. I was so excited to receive my February Birchbox that I had to share the contents!
February's Birchbox came with:
- A card for a free download of one of my favorite music groups from Ft. Worth, Texas, Green River Ordinance: If you haven't heard "Dancing Shoes", download it! Plus, they have a new album coming out in 2 weeks.
- Violent Lips - Lip Tattoos: I could have completely done without these as I will never use them. (I would have rather received a beautyblender®, which I saw in other Birchboxes on Pinterest.)
- Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant®: I'm thrilled to try this! This is a "just add water" exfoliant so it will be great to try in the shower. Lately, my skin has been combination - but mostly dry due to the lack of humidity in the cooler temperatures.
- BENTA BERRY G-1 Moisturizing Face Cream: My dry winter skin always loves a good moisturizer - and its Parisian!
- Supersmile Powdered Mouthrinse: Another "just add water" product! This powdered mouth rinse whitens and freshens.
- Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint: An oil-free, tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 - also rated "Best in Beauty" by Allure.
