I Love Birchbox!!

First of all, I want to clarify that Birchbox has no inkling who I am, and they have no idea that I am posting about their awesome service!!!

Now, let me tell you a little about Birchbox just in case you haven't heard of this great service! Birchbox is a company that spends their days researching ingredients, trends and products. They deliver high-end beauty, grooming and lifestyle samples that have been customized for you. They help you find products that you will love! After you try one of the many samples, you can purchase a full size product right in the Birchbox Shop.

Every month I get an email from Birchbox telling me that they have shipped my box. It is one of the best emails I get all month! I wait patiently for about a day, and then I check the post office daily.

Sometimes I wait like a week before I check the post office box, but when I know this box is headed my way I am happy to drive all the way to town to fight traffic on the square to see if my pink treasure has arrived.

As soon as I get the box, I have to open it. I am one of those people that take up one of the parking spaces at the post office opening my package, while people circle the block looking for a parking place. So far, I have not had to add change to the meter.

Look how cute the box is that comes inside the pink box. I'm a sucker for cuteness!

Cute, cute, cute and filled with goodies!!

Obviously, I cannot get an autofocus camera to focus, but these are the goodies that came in October.

ACR_7724Let me just tell you a little bit about what is in the box.  I did not take photos of each individual item, so you will have to do a little research if you are interested.

DevaCurl – 3 Step System

A no-foam trio of grapeseed oil shampoo, curl-taming conditioner, and genius soft-hold gel.

dr. brandt – microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

Breakthrough at-home treatment for a glowing complexion – no pricey derm appointment needed.

Supergoop! – City Sunscreen Serum

This is an antiaging SPF 30 serum that creates a weightless UV shield, & can be worn year-round.

theBalm cosmetics – Stainiac in Beauty Queen

Bestselling stain that gives cheeks and lips a sheer, rosy tint.

Bonus – Birchbox Find

Occasionally they come across mass-market discoveries that are exciting, time-saving, or just generally awesome. The "Finds" are always in addition to your usual samples, and never in place of them.

This month – ChapStick Hydration Lock

It is clinically proven to moisturize lips, from 9-5, 8 hours. It also doubles as a lip primer and comes chock full of damage-defending antioxidants like CoQ10 and Vitamin E.

If you want to become one of the people that sits in your car ripping open boxes to see what kind of goodies they sent you this time, then go on over to Birchbox and sign up for your very own monthly subscription! Then maybe we can compare our goodies!
