This beauty subscription box post is not sponsored, but includes referral and affiliate links. Thanks for your support!

Hey lovely ladies. Who loves the following things:

  • Beauty products?
  • Getting to try samples of products before buying – to make sure you like a color, or to make sure something works well with your skin?
  • Finding surprises in the mail? Like, FUN surprises, not unexpected bills?

If you’re like me, you love all of these. So you’ll also love this great beauty subscription box from Birchbox! This pretty package is only $10 a month, shipped right to your door, and filled with lovely luxe beauty products customized just for you. Awesome, right? Check out my first box:

Birchbox - Subscription Beauty Box

I’m totally in love. The box arrived super fast. There was a sturdy outer box, then when you open it up there’s another box containing your actual products, so they’re extra safe and secure during transit. All packaged up pretty, with a card. When you sign up for a Birchbox subscription, you answer some questions about your hair and skin color and type, what brands you like, types of products you prefer, etc. That way they can customize your box so that you love it. It also means not every box is going to be exactly the same. But here’s what was included in my box today:

  • A very pretty blush and highlighter duo from Coastal Scents. I’m pretty pale, and these are perfect shades for me – they add just a touch of color and shimmer.
  • A very cool mascara from Milk Makeup – I’ve never tried this brand, but have heard a lot of good things lately. It’s the Ubame Mascara, with ubame oak charcoal and sapphire dust to make it super dark – which I love. And a cool triple-ball style applicator to make it easier to get those tiny outer corner lashes.
  • R+Co ANALOG Cleansing Foam Conditioner, which includes argan oil in the ingredient list, and I’m a total argan oil junkie! You use this product instead of shampoo, and it’s supposed to leave a really pretty sheen and softness.
  • Skin care – Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream – a hydrater to boost skin’s moisture during dry winter months. And you only need a nickle-sized amount per application, so it should go a long way. And I got a tube of Balance Me Radiance Face Mask too, which cleanses, exfoliates, and brightens skin. Both perfect this time of year.

AND — As a bonus when I signed up, I also got one of the new mascaras from Benefit {one of my fave brands} – Roller Lash. I’m a total mascara lover, even when I don’t wear much else, so getting two mascaras this month is super cool. If you sign up now, the bonus is a full-sized liquid liner with your first box!

How does Birchbox work?

How it works:

It’s super simple to join. Just go to the Birchbox website, fill out the questionnaire so that they know what personalized products you would like the most, enter payment info, and BAM. You’re in! Then you just stalk your mailbox – err, I mean patiently await your first delivery :) And, once you’re a member, you also get loads of cool discounts on products from their site, that you can add-on to each month’s shipment. You also earn points for all of your purchases, that you can use towards buying even more pretty products. They have gift subscriptions too – just $30 gets a 3-month gift subscription, which is perfect for anyone but especially great for the gals you have a hard time shopping for. What a fun surprise for them for the next few months.

Chat with me: Have you ever tried Birchbox? Any tips or advice for making the most of my new subscription? Any other cool subscription boxes that I should try? {I just joined Ipsy too, and am awaiting that first shipment soon! Stay tuned on Instagram to see it first when I get it.} Leave some comments below, or on the Facebook post. I love hearing from you guys.
