Birchbox is a monthly program that delivers either full size or sample sized beauty and lifestyle samples for only $10 a month, which includes shipping. I received my first Birchbox today! It was a back to school themed box and to be honest with you, I didn't see the Birchbox logo at first and thought someone was sending me pencils....
Larabars. I received a full size Sumita Brow Base pencil (valued at $11). This pencil is pretty awesome. It conceals discoloration and any stray hairs in your eyebrows. I also received a sample of Beauty fixation makeup removers. This is one of those moments you think to yourself - why didn't I think about inventing that? Three pre-filled swabs which allow you to correct even the tiniest beauty blunders in seconds, the powerful makeup remover completely erases stubborn mascara and liner. Slip them into you purse or pocket for quick touchups! I received a sample of Viva la Jucy La Fleur which promptly found a new home in my purse.
But my favorite item? A full sized Stainiac by the Balm (valued at $17) A two-in-one lip and cheek stain gives a natural, understated flush. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks.
There is a small wait list for Birchbox. It took about two weeks to get accepted after I submitted my information. If you like getting presents in the mail, the $10 is well worth it. My box had $27 of full size beauty products in it, along with the yummy larabar and a perfume sample. Winner!
