Have you jumped on the BirchBox Bandwagon yet? I finally bit the bullet, and got my first box this month.
I am not really a girl who gets super pumped about trying new beauty products - walking into a Sephora actually brings about a certain amount of anxiety because there are so many products and I don't even know where to start!
I have a set of products that I know work with my skin, and I am nervous about trying new products, hating them, and then being too polite to return them, so they sit on my bathroom shelf collecting dust.
So when I found out about the BirchBox service, that for $10 delivers a box of sample sized beauty products to my front door every month, I decided to take the plunge.
The May BirchBox was "Gossip Girl" themed, and included some amazing products that were tailored to the products I am interested in. (and yes, I still LOVE GG)
My first box included:
Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline Fragrance
Color Club Nail polish In Clambake Coral
Kiehl's Abyssine Cream
Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF
Twistband hair tie
Gossip Girl Notecard
I have really enjoyed trying out the new products (I shocked even myself!) I had already been introduced and converted to a Twistband believer, but have found new favorites in both Color Club nail polish and Kiehl's Abyssine cream. The Color Club nail polish is a rich, 1 coat color, that has lasted on my toes for 2 weeks now (a near record for my at home pedi). The Kiehl's cream has been used at night so far, and I am super impressed with how soft and smooth my skin has become. The glow of the Miracle Skin Body SPF is interesting... but makes me feel like I have dewy Carrie Underwood legs... not something I go for everyday, but might pull out for a special occasion. I don't wear fragrance everyday, but have enjoyed trying out the new Bvlgari scent, fresh and light enough for day, but sexy and interesting for night as well.
I fell even more in love with BirchBox after reading the interview of the ladies behind the genius idea in last month's Matchbook Magazine.
|Katia and Haley are super impressive ladies that are not only gorgeous but down to earth to boot!|
Have you tried the BirchBox service?
Or is there some other mail order beauty sample service that I am missing out on?
