Daily Distraction: Birchbox
Posted by Katie Ostoich on March 27, 2012 at 11:42 AM
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the time or money to try a bunch of new beauty products all the time. And even when I read about fab new beauty buys, I’m never sure if they will work for me…or justify the expense! Enter Birchbox! Birchbox is designed to be a smart, streamlined, and fun way to try and buy high-end beauty products. Their team of beauty editors sort through the clutter to send you only what works and what’s worth the splurge. They created Birchbox because, like us, they love beauty but don’t want to have to work too hard for it.
Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch. You'll receive anything from skincare to makeup to cult beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging gems. When you are certain you love the samples you've tried, you can purchase full-size versions directly from the Birchbox shop. Every purchase earns you points you can use toward more fantastic products.
This month, the box was packed with products to solve your head-to-toe dilemmas, like a shine-boosting shampoo, a cleansing and moisturizing skin balm, awesome neon nail polish (so trendy), and a goofproof chubby lip pencil that I loved. Sign up (or give a membership as a gift!) here.
