I have to stay up to date on new products and industry buzz; one of the easiest (and most fun!) ways to do this is with a monthly Birchbox subscription. Somewhere in the second week of the month a box of deluxe (and sometimes full size) samples are delivered to my door. There are always products from major brands, but many are smaller companies that are just entering into the market so it's a great way to be "in the know" before the rest of the world is. There’s everything from make up to skin care to hair care and a few extra bonuses like tea, chocolate, nail polish and hair accessories. Each box has a theme and the products are selected to complement it (ie back to school, spring break, the holidays, etc.). I’ve discovered there are times I try a product, love it and use the sample so quickly I have to order the full size product (like the SuperGoop City Sunscreen Serum – a skin care treatment, plus sunscreen. Amazingly perfect for the summer! Works great alone or under make up!).
If you want to know what’s new on the market or you just love beauty products, treat yourself to this monthly subscription ($10 a month and that includes the cost of shipping). It's such a treat when you open your mailbox and the hot pink box is just waiting to be opened!!!
Have you tried Birchbox or any other monthly make up subscriptions? If not, try this one and get ready to discover some great new products!
