Starting today, Tyna and I are writing a week of guest posts at the fabulous Birchbox blog. Yes, that Birchbox! And if you somehow don’t know what I mean, allow me to introduce you to your next obsession…
For only $10 per month, Birchbox delivers to its members a box of 4 or 5 beauty samples. I know, you’ve heard of companies like this before right? Maybe you’ve even tried a few. But when your box arrived, you were disappointed with the mish mash of brands that you’ve never heard of. Not the case with Birchbox. They send you the brands you actually want to try . But don’t take my word for it, check out the list of brand partners. NARS, Deborah Lippmann, Kiehl’s, Dr. Dennis Gross – see?
Perhaps another bone of contention with previous sample services you may tried, the tiny size of the sample. But hooray, with Birchbox there is nary a single use packet in sight! These are deluxe size samples that allow you a few uses to help you decide if it’s worth the purchase.
Add to this a shop that sells the full size products that you’ve tried, a $10 credit for every $100 you spend at said shop, and personal profile page that assures hand select items (i.e. fine, straight haired girls will never get a product for thick curls) and tell me this is not the most genius service EVER!
Further proving their smarty pants-ness and getting back to my original point, they’ve asked we heart this to do a week of guest posts on their blog. We’ve got some great posts planned; tips for fighting adult acne, how to wear glitter and not look like a ‘tween, and much more. So, be sure to stop by and say hi!
