Do you love getting packages in the mail? Do you love beauty products? I happen to love both so when my sister-in-law gifted me with a subscription to Birchbox, I was ecstatic. Birchbox was founded by two Harvard Business School alums. (Fun fact: Other amazing fashion/beauty businesses to come out of Harvard grads are Gilt Groupe and Rent the Runway.) Founders Katia Beauchamp and Hayley Barna started the company as a way to help women navigate through the endless products that can be found out there. Each month, a pretty box with 4 or 5 high-end samples are sent to you. The site allows you to fill out a profile so what you receive is tailored to your needs. If you like a product, you can purchase the full size on the site. And there are tons of how-to videos to show you how to wear the latest hair and makeup trends or maximize your beauty potential. I love the thrill of what may be in each shipment and plan to keep them coming indefinitely.
The packaging alone is so pretty in shades of hot pink with a black bow. My first shipment contained:
* Blow Up Daily Volumizing Conditioner
* Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink
* Juicy Couture Signature Fragrance
* Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Papers
* Zoya Nail Polish in Kristen
So excited to try this nail color!
