Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets, without any fuss. Every month Birchbox members receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch.
The other cool thing about Birch Box is that you can develop a profile so that the goodies that arrive are especially tailored for you. I recently received my first shipment around the same time as a few other beauty junkies and we all received different items.
My first impression is that I LOVE LOVE the concept. FIRST BOX contents: a full-sized bar of handmade lavender soap (yowza!), a perfume sample, a ziplock bag (in their defense it did have designs but honestly at the end of the day...it was a ziplock bag), a vial of lip and cheek stain and nail polish remover cloths (ho hum). A lickle (as Adele would say) random.
After a beauty junkie pow-wow, we all surmised that the reason for our lackluster first shipments was due to timing. Because they were sent at the end of the month instead of the best of the best we got the best of what was left. Nonetheless, I hold out big hopes for next month's box which will be curated based on my tastes and preferences. Yay!
Despite my first box experience, there are definitely more pros to this than cons. I wholeheartedly love the idea of a monthly supply of beauty surprises waiting at my doorstep! I highly recommend you try it for yourself and let me know what you think. Stay Posh!
