Don’t you just love it when a package arrives in the mail? Especially when you’re not sure what’s inside, like a gift for your birthday perhaps!

I read about Birchbox last year and was so intrigued by the concept but wavered back and forth for months on whether I should sign up. Well, for Christmas my mind was made up for me…my husband surprised me with a subscription to Birchbox!

What is Birchbox you ask? Well it’s a monthly subscription ($10 a month) and every month you receive a beautifully wrapped box in the mail with 4-5 deluxe samples/travel size items of various beauty oriented products to try! They send everything from big name luxury brands to smaller organic companies…and every month is different!  Saturday my first box arrived…let’s take a peek inside!

I love how everything is wrapped up do nicely! Opening it is quite the experience!

The VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Eye Serum alone made this months box worth the $10! This puppy is about half the size of other standard eye treatments on the market! I couldn’t believe how generous this “sample” was! It’ll definitely be enough for me to see how I like the product!

I love Zoya and this mini nail polish is too cute! And the Jouer mini lipgloss looks like it’s in a fun color!
My box also had a Birchbox magnet, a Larabar in cherry pie, and a sample of the original Juicy Couture fragrance.

So if you’re a beauty product junkie like me, don’t have the time to go to a makeup counter all the time to see what’s new, or you just prefer to try things at home first before you purchase them…then Birchbox is for you! I love too how they have brands I might not naturally seek out and send me things I might have passed over when browsing. And let’s be real, the samples aren’t always this large or fabulous at the makeup counter and sometimes it’s too embarrassing or annoying to ask for them anyways…but these definitely aren’t your average “samples” AND they show up on your door! Beauty ruts are a thing of the past now!

Cheers to Beauty Products, Samples, and to Birchbox,
