I have been hearing so much buzz about beauty sample box subscriptions so I figured it was time for me to learn more. I was so excited when Birchbox sent me one of their sample boxes. It contained some information on the history of the company, which was founded in September 2010 by two friends Katia and Hayley, as well as a card explaining how the service works. Birchbox members pay $10 a month for a monthly delivery of 4-5 deluxe samples that are hand-selected to match their beauty profile. In addition, each member has the option to shop Birchbox.com for full-sizes of samples that they fall in love with.
My Birchbox was chock full of amazing products that I thoroughly enjoyed sampling. I recieved Colorscience Pro Sunforgettable Mineral Powder Sun Protection with SPF 30, Stila Glamour Eyes Mascara, Nuxe Multi-usage Dry Oil, Korres Guava Body Butter, Kerastase Bain Miroir Shampoo and Tatcha Blotting Papers.
I loved the Nuxe Dry Oil – it is amazing for hair and face. Before applying my foundation, I have been rubbing a drop of this oil on my skin for a flawless finish.The Korres Guava Body Butter is rich, smells delicious and makes my skin feel like silk all day. I also have been enjoying the Kerastase Shampoo. It is very hydrating for my dry curly hair and I think I am going to order the full size to add it to my hair regimen. I am impressed with the sample sizes as well. They are large enough that you can really gauge how the products will work for you over the course of a week or longer.
