Birchbox is just one of the many money-saving “sampling” businesses that have became popular in recent years. Similar companies Rent the Runway and Chegg allow customers to rent designer dresses and textbooks at a lower price, respectively. However, Birchbox differs from these two by allowing customers to get trial-size versions of their favorite high-end beauty products to keep.
For a low price of $10 a month, Birchbox subscribers receive a box full of beauty, hair and skin goodies to sample. It’s a great way to try new brands and products without having to break the bank! As someone who is always on the search for the best dry shampoo or lip color, I can really appreciate the services that Birchbox offers.
In addition to the monthly boxes, they also sell a variety of makeup, hair products and perfumes through their website. Many of these products are brands and shades that were in a previous month’s Birchbox. I’ve shared my top 5 favorite products that Birchbox offers on their site. Hopefully these show up in your box soon!
My Top 5 Birchbox Products:
Beauty Blender Makeup Blending Sponges– While I admit that I’m more of a finger-applier myself (or I use my ELF and BH Cosmetic brushes), these makeup blending sponges also do the trick. The beautyblender® easily and effortlessly blends foundation for a smooth and even distribution.
Deborah Lippman Nail Lacquer in “Daytripper”– This pinky coral shade is perfect for summer. Watch as the compliments roll in.
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint– This new lip tint is said to “clinically improve lip’s moisture content”. Available in a rainbow of shades, you’ll want to pick up one of these in each color.
Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo– After my friend Courtney introduced me to the greatness that is Oscar Blandi dry shampoo in college, I’ve been an avid fan. This formula sprays on clear, so it can be used by girls/women will all hair colors. It’s also available in other forms like a powder if that works better for you.
