Today is a day that will forever go down in my history books. Why is that you ask? Well, today marks the first day of ever receiving a BIRCHBOX and life might finally be complete. On top of that, this pretty pink box comes generously filled with sample- sized goodies specially catered to my every beauty want & need (ish). Still don’t know WTF I’m talking about!?
Birchbox is a monthly delivery of personalized beauty, grooming and lifestyle samples from cult brands, up-and-coming lines, and everything in between. You NEVER know what you’re going to get, and that my friends is the beauty of it. How good is that feeling when you walk into a store with zero expectations and end up finding a new product that you don’t know how you ever lived your life without? Yeah, I’m looking at you Lush, and your organic lemon cuticle cream. Holy. Cr*p. Problem is, who really has the time for these kinds of adventures? Realistically, I wont give up on the products I use regularly (coconut oil, sea buckthorn oil and tea tree oil body wash). However I’ve quickly discovered my kid-on-christmas-like interest in new beauty products that I’d never get the chance to experience without this rapidly growing monthly trend. Birchbox just came to Canada (by popular demand) a mere 2 months ago, and at $15 flat rate it’s one of the cheapest monthly box deliveries on the market. This doesn’t mean there isn’t a TON of other options, but as a first-time user, I might be addicted. Do your research first before subscribing. Prices do range, and your options are seemingly limitless. You can get all natural beauty boxes, organic snack boxes, men’s grooming products boxes, and, my personal fav., a ‘monthly hug’ box that shows up just in time for your comma (that time of the month) with all the goodies a gal could want. So, whattttt are you waiting for!? Go on and get box hunting!
