Today is my Friday, so I’m all smiles! But a little sad too, my last Birchbox for 2013. Last year I suggested a subscription service as a great holiday gift that keeps on giving. I chose Birchbox and for $10 each month I receive a box of goodies related to health and beauty. It’s like having a personal shopper to go out and try these goodies and send you the best of the best. The products are sample size, but definitely usable and you can buy the full size products on the site. Now one aspect of Birchbox I didn’t use much this year and really should have was the Points Program. You can leave a review for each product to get points on your account and translate those points into dollars to buy products.
This month’s theme is Sparkle and Shine for the holidays. I don’t really see the how the products reflect the theme but I do like the moisturizer that’s also a makeup remover. Birchbox introduced Cynthia Rowley’s makeup line and the Birchbox mobile app so that’s good news.
For the most part, I have happily ran to the mailbox to snag some awesome products, but towards the end of the year, the boxes were less “Wow!” and more “What?”. I’m leaning towards continuing Birchbox as I really do love sampling the latest and greatest in health and beauty every month for just $10 bucks and you cancel at anytime. I’m giving Birchbox a B+. Use this code to start your own Birchbox http://birch.ly/1h2Qnbl. Can’t wait to hear what you think!
I’m considering a second subscription here. Are you considering a subscription service for 2014?
Keep it Pretty,
