Little box of love

What girl wouldn't want to go to her mailbox and find a treasure trove of beauty samples each month? I know I would! I heard about Birchbox a few months ago and am completely obsessed! The company was founded by 2 young women to essentially sort through all the unnecessary and useless and really find great products that not everyone knows about or products that you may not want to shell out the steep prices for without ever having tried them. They've had tons of press lately and I haven't really heard anything bad about the company!

What they do it seems is usually pick some sort of theme and pick 4-5 deluxe samples of high end beauty products to send out to their subscribers each month. Subscriptions are only $10 a month which seems completely reasonable to me considering that sample Bad Gal Lash in the picture is already $10 by itself. You fill out a beauty profile when you register and the company tailors (to some extent) your box for you! I've watched a few Youtube videos on girls opening their boxes and it does seem that different people do get different products in the same month. 

I really want to subscribe, the only thing I'm scared of is that I'll get a dud month and get nothing I like. But I guess in that case it was only $10 and I can cancel at any time. I have seen lots of full size products also like eye shadows and lip balms. But it usually seems to be a nice mix of makeup, hair, skin, and fragrance. Do any of you girls subscribe? Anything amazing or bad you've heard about it? If you would like to check it out or subscribe their website is

I'm ordering, but my first box won't arrive until the middle of July. If you're interested in trying Birchbox but are still a little scared like me, let me know if you would like me to post the contents of my first box when I get it in July! I figure summer has to be a pretty good time to order. . .I feel like there are less products I will dislike in the summertime. We'll see. . .


  1. I've head about Eco-Emi and I want to try one of them so freaking bad!! Ah I know the feeling!!

  2. Ooo I've never heard of that one! I'm going to check that out too! Thanks!
