Birchbox: What It Is and Why I Love It

November 17, 2015

Hey Babes!

So, i’m gonna talk about something that I really love…….BIRCHBOX!!!!

I frickin LOVE Birchbox!

If you don’t know what it is….that’s so sad! You’ve been missing out on so much! Let me tell you, poor beauty-sample-deprived soul.

What’s Birchbox: A monthly beauty sample subscription. Basically, you sign up for a monthly subscription or a yearly subscription (you save $10 with the yearly). During the subscription process, you fill out a beauty profile, so birchbox knows what kind of beauty samples to include in your box. Then, every month, you receive a beautiful box (yes, they have pretty designs on them) with personalized beauty samples inside. It also comes with a nice little card that tells you what the products are, how to use them, and how much they cost.

So, why am I telling you about Birchbox?

Because I love it SO MUCH!!

Okay, but why do I love it so much?

Oh right, I got so caught up in my love for Birchbox that I forgot what the post was about. Let me get back on track real quick…..

Okay, so I have been obsessed with beauty products and cosmetics since like 8th grade. I had a little spending problem, when it came to beauty products, in sophomore year of high school.

(yeah, were talking like spending $100+ every time I went to Sephora….and guys……i’m not rich)

Yeah, it was a BIG problem, so I stopped spending so much at Sephora, but I ran into the problem that all ridiculously pale girls run into……NO DRUGSTORE has the right shade for me!!

So, I had to start buying expensive foundation again.

Fast foreward 2.5 years. I had been trying different foundations all over the place (expensive and inexpensive) and I was getting tired of buying foundations, having them not work, and return them or not be able to return them.

I looked up makeup sampling programs…….then, I found Birchbox.

I read about the program and immediately signed myself up (I was just like, $10/ month! That’s such a great deal for 5+ samples of makeup/beauty products).

I got my first box and received a CC Cream by Juice Beauty that was the EXACTLY right shade for me. It was fantastic.

Fun Fact: Birchbox also give you points every time you order a box, renew your yearly subscription, review any of your samples, or buy any products from the birchbox shop. You can use these points to buy things in the Birchbox shop.

I love Birchbox because it saves me money and gives me new beauty products to try. I have found so many great products by jsut receiving them as a random sample in my monthly box.

I have also NEVER regretted spending $10/month on Birchbox.

Believe me, It’s worth it.

That’s all I have for you guys today. If you are wondering about the products I got in my November Birchbox, there are links to them at the bottom of this post.

If you are interested in signing up through Birchbox, you can sign up HERE and save $5 on your first box!

I literally cannot stress the awesomeness of Birchbox enough!

Alright, that’s it for today. My next post will be on Friday.
