I have heard of Birchbox for awhile but never thought about subscribing to it. I have been seeing more people post about their beauty box subscriptions like Birchox and Ipsy on social media recently and thought I would give it a try.
My first dilemma was which one to choose. After some research I decided Birchbox was the best fit for me because of the brands they offer and amazing reward system. From what I have read Ipsy leans towards makeup and Birchbox sends more skin and body care products.
I just got my first box in the mail last week. I was so excited and the packaging made it even better to open. Inside my box I received seven different samples.
I was really impressed with how much I loved every sample. The real winner from this box was the Dr. Jart+ BB cream. After 2 days of wearing it I ordered the full size version. I can't express how amazing this stuff is. It really evens out my skin tone and covers well. I am replacing my usual foundation for it. I also see me ordering the Hello perfume by Harvey Prince in the future (it is currently sold out-everyone else loves it too!). It has such a refreshing, clean smell. It could easily be a new signature scent for me.
I have only been a member of Birchbox for 2 weeks and have already racked up 280 Birchbox points. You get 1 point for every $1 you spend on Birchbox and 100 points equals $10 to spend on the site. I am so impressed with this reward system and how easy it is to earn points which makes buying the full size versions a lot more doable. You can earn 10 points for each review you leave on the products in your box, 50 points for every friend that joins, and points for all your beauty purchases on the site. I even searched for promo codes and found codes for extra points. So by just reviewing your products each month you can quickly add up points to receive money towards your next purchase.
You can sign up here to start receiving 5-6 beauty samples tailored to you each month. It makes checking the mail so much more fun! Use the code BBSTORE100 to receive bonus points when you sign up. Let me know if you have any questions
