Some of you may have seen my photos on facebook or instagram of my birchboxes. I've had some questions about it, so I thought I'd explain a little here and tell you about my experience with it.
Basically, you sign up to get box each month. It's $10 a month (or I think you get a small discount if you do a year subscription). It's a great way to try new products without the huge investment. The products are typically sample size, although some samples are larger than others. For example, last month I got a sample of DDF Brightening Cleanser and I use it every day, and I still have a little over half left, and it's been about a month since I got it. Other samples I use up in a few days or a couple weeks.
I get so excited when I get my box in the mail because I never know what's inside! It's a surprise every time! I've only received two birchboxes so far, but I've been happy with what I got so far. I like the fact that I can try new products, without paying full price for a full size bottle, in case I don't like it. For example, last month I received a sample of Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm and this month a sample of Jouer Matte Moisture Tint and I learned that I like these types of products. I like the idea of using a tinted moisturizer instead of a moisturizer and a foundation or cover up. And they include an SPF which is a bonus! I never would have went and bought a full size version of something like this in case I didn't like it. I was able to use the sample size products to try it out and decide if I want to purchase the full-size version.
