Birchbox is a monthly subscription that sends you personalized samples every month for just $10. Signing up for this monthly service gets you 4-5 deluxe beauty samples with items ranging from body care, makeup, fragrance and hair care. Each monthly subscription can be cancelled at any time, so I signed up to see what $10 got me.
I received these samples for November:
- Kerastase Elixir Ultime
- Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial
- Thymes Eucaluptus & Kimono Rose body lotions
- Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in Sugar Pink
- Monthly Treat: Two Paper Dolls coasters
The enclosed note card has a description of each item listed on the back along with the price points, should I decide to purchase the full sized item.
I can't really say that I am disappointed in what I received. I knew I would be receiving sample sizes so I definitely got what I paid for. Would I ever purchase these items on my own? If I wasn't familiar with them, no. I usually don't spend much on something I have never tried. But I like the concept of having samples sent by different brands and for different purposes. It gives me an opportunity to try them myself and then decide if I want to purchase the item in the future...or not! I think I will keep going with Birchbox and see what future months will bring. I have seen some goodies from other members!
