What's a Birchbox? Birchbox is a $10 a month box that includes a handful of new beauty and lifestyle products that are shipped directly to your house. While I love all things style, I'm really not into picking out makeup and other beauty products, nor am I good at it. I don't even like putting my money into these products. I seriously wash my hair with Suave hair care products and use cheap, drug store body wash. Shocker, I know. I'm cheap when it comes to beauty care, but on the flip side, somehow I don't blink when dropping a wad of cash on a designer handbag. To each their own, I guess.
I have read about Birchbox on numerous blogs and thought this would be the perfect way for me to explore new beauty products without a huge financial commitment. You have to agree there is nothing worse than buying new makeup and not liking it. In my eyes, that is money wasted.
To join, you submit your email online and then are put on a waiting list. It took a couple weeks for me to receive the email stating that I am eligible to start Birchbox. Birchbox is shipping out each month on a magazine schedule. You can sign up for a monthly subscription and can cancel any time. You can also purchase three and six month gift subscriptions for a friend.
Well, my first Birchbox just arrived last week!
I received six items in the box:
So far, I love the nail polish and lip stain. I am typically a pink girl when it comes to pedicures. I thought I would spice things up and paint my toes with this mint color. I look down and don't even know who I am. It is a nice surprise!
I also love the lip stain, because it gives you color without being too much. Plus, it doesn't clump or crack up.
