September marks the third anniversary of the innovative Birchbox brand, so I figured this would be the perfect time to gush over this awesome concept. If you aren’t already familiar, let me give you the rundown.
Launched in 2010, Birchbox personalizes ways to discover, learn about, and buy the best beauty, grooming and lifestyle products. Basically, you get a box of the hottest new beauty goodies (in deluxe size samples) each month for only $10. The women’s subscription includes everything from skincare to makeup and hair products, as well as fun non-beauty extras. Guys can also get in on the fun with Birchbox Man! The men’s subscription delivers top-tier grooming products in addition to lifestyle accessories ranging from hip socks to tech accessories. The men’s box is priced at $20 each month.
It’s a genius way to find new products without having to blindly shell out full retail price. Products can be expensive (trust me, I know!), so this is the perfect solution to gambling on products you may or may not like. Ever come home from the mall with a $50 tube of something that ends up collecting dust in a drawer? Birchbox eliminates that drawer clutter by exposing you to awesome new products and creating a super easy way to purchase the full size items.
My favorite part of the program is that it’s completely customized. When you sign up with Birchbox, you select personalized profile options, so each box is geared to your taste. When you are ready for more of the products you sampled, you can purchase full-size versions directly from the Birchbox Shop. They also have a generous loyalty program that rewards you every time you shop and all the brands in that month’s box ship free!
In addition to all of the product goodness, Birchbox features an extensive assortment of awesome content in the Birchbox Magazine. They also have a blog that features articles, expert interviews, videos, and editorial tips and tricks so you get the most out of your new products.
So, are you ready to discover your next everything? I just got my September box and I am loving it! Stay tuned for my review of the box. In the meantime, visit www.birchbox.com/shop/join to join Birchbox and start trying out high-end beauty samples from top brands!
