I am brand new to the world of subscription boxes, but I think I could easily get addicted. There are so many to choose from, there’s really something for everyone! To get me started on the subscription box addiction, Stephen gifted me a Birchbox subscription for Christmas this year. The first box arrived before Christmas but he made me wait to open it. I’m glad he did because it was such a nice little treat.
For those not familiar with subscription boxes, these are monthly (sometimes weekly or quarterly) boxes with a certain theme that are basically surprise gift boxes. There are boxes for various types of food, jewelry, beauty products, socks, pet products, and really anything else you can think of. I don’t know how I’ve never heard of them until now, because these are excellent ways to treat yourself!
Birchbox is one of the most popular boxes and is also reasonably priced at $10 a month. You’ll receive 4-5 beauty (skincare, haircare, fragrance, makeup, nail polish) or lifestyle samples in your box. These aren’t customized, but you can go on their website and indicate your preferences. They also have a Birchbox for men, I think the men’s box is a skincare/hair care/lifestyle box.
Back to my December Birchbox. Here are my goods:
I received three samples of Ahmad tea, color Club nail polish, Hello fragrance by Harvey Prince, Beauty Protector leave in conditioner and detangler spray, and MANNA sheer glo shimmer lotion. I love tea, so I was super happy to try out a new brand.
I really love this nail polish. Most of my nail polishes are bright, so it’s nice to try out something darker but still festive and fun. I don’t love this perfume. It’s non-offensive and fine, but it’s a little too floral for me.
I was happy to receive this leave-in conditioner spray. I’ve already used it and loved it.I was worried about this body shimmer lotion since I felt I might be too old for it, but it’s really subtle and could be fun.
All in all, I was happy with my box this month and can’t wait for my next one. Check out Birchbox for a fun monthly treat!
