If you are like me and want to separate truly great beauty products from lackluster duds, then I know you will be blown away by Birchbox, a monthly delivery of highly curated, luxe beauty samples. I am slow to commit to beauty products and will very rarely buy something new without first pouring through product reviews or playing around with a sample. With Birchbox, I’m covered. Founders Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp “created Birchbox to help women cut through the clutter of the beauty world to find products that really work.”
Birchbox is a members only site. For less than the cost of a New York City manicure ($10), Birchbox members receive 4-5 samples of tested beauty products which include: “anything from skincare to makeup to cult beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging gems.” Current Birchbox partnerships include well-known brands like NARS, Phyto, Stila, Perricone MD and Laura Mercier.
Once you have found a sample that you absolutely love and cannot exist without, go to Birchbox shop and order your products directly. Birchbox offers incentives for purchases in their shop by giving Birchbox Points. This points can be redeemed for discounts on full size products. Score!
