My First Birchbox (Have You Tried It?)


I jumped on the Birchbox bandwagon back in December (since it is January of a totally different year, I can say it like it was really far back).  I read about it on a blog somewhere (not exactly sure where), and thought it was a fantastic idea.  For $10 a month, I get samples delivered to my door of products I might love.  Genius idea, right?


When you join, you fill out a questionnaire of your likes and about you skin.  Then you wait for your first package.  It is delivered at (close to) the start of the month after you join.  My first box came in December (and I joined in November).  


In my Birchbox:
Benefit Cosmetics:  The Porefessional
Harvey Prince: Ageless (perfume)
Jouer: Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink
L'Oreal Professional : Mythic Oil
Showstoppers: Designer Fashion Tape
 Eboost: Orange Natural Energy Booster

So far, I am having fun trying everything out.  There is definitely stuff here I wouldn't have picked out for myself, but I like.  Are you a member (or have you thought about joining)?  I would love to hear about you experience here.  Are you a member of anything similar?  Is there anything similar out there?

Fun, I've heard about this but haven't tried it myself. It would be a good gift for someone as well

This is news to me. That's why I love your blog and keep coming back. You are always finding and trying new things(and I love your adorable dogs).

i got it for my sister for christmas - i'm excited to see what fun stuff she gets with it. it sounds good enough to give to myself, too.

I'm very tempted to subscribe, but it's kind if an added expense I don't really need. I like seeing what bloggers get every month though. So I guess I'm living vicariously!

I think i should do this, I've seen it everywhere.

I had finally thought of a Christmas gift for me, my parents were dying to get an answer out of me, and I told them "Birchbox! Just let me look more into it, but I like the sound of it!" Well, womp womp, they don't ship to Canada :(

I haven't tried Birchbox yet, but I have been meaning to. Looks like you got some great samples.

Kathy S said...

One of my favorite YouTubers, Ingrid aka missglamorazzi just began working for them so I've been thinking about joining. I'd be interested to hear what you think about it.

Ana said...

That sounds fun! I've definitely heard of it on other blogs... Maybe I should give it a go! :)

alicia said...

haven't tried it, but you've got some cute things!

The Suburb Experiment said...

I've thought about it because I'm such a product junkie. I won skincare products from a Lucky Magazine giveaway though, and now I'm afraid I'm hooked on $100 face cream. I'm afraid if I was getting wee samples through the mail I'd go broke buying it all full-size. :)

what a cool idea!

Elle Sees said...

i've been disappointed in birchbox, but not everyone gets the same products. i'm crazy about MyGlam though. It's similar but every sample is full or deluxe size. I did a review on it--scroll down on my blog to find it. I actually used every product!

Erin said...

Every time I see mention of this, I'm a little more tempted! Ten bucks is nothing for a fun little package each month!

BlueVanilla said...

I love birch box! They have fun lil things every month!
