I started using Birchbox about two years ago when my best friend recommended it to me. For $10 a month, you get an adorable little box with five curated samples. Here is a breakdown of my experience with Birchbox:
Highlights: I’m always excited to receive a Birchbox because I know that I’ll be getting five high-quality products. Whether the brands are indie or well-known, I can trust Birchbox to send me amazing items every month. Plus they make it even more exciting by sending adorable boxes every month that you can use to organize your jewelry, cosmetics, and more! I also love that I can personalize my box and choose my preferences so I know I’ll get something I love every time.
Lows: My only complaint about Birchbox is that I wish they would send me more makeup than they do. It seems like most of my samples are moisturizers and face masks (which don’t get me wrong, I love those), but I wish I could try more lipsticks, mascaras, and eyeshadows.
The Verdict: Overall I love my Birchbox, but I’m giving the service 4 out of 5 stars because I’ve gotten pretty tired of getting so many face products. Out of my five samples, usually only one is a makeup product. If you don’t mind that and you’d like to receive mostly face masks and moisturizers, you’ll love Birchbox!
