Birchbox is one of the very first beauty boxes. Every month, Birchbox subscribers will receive a curated box of 5 beauty, grooming, and/or lifestyle samples. Fill out your beauty profile after you sign up, so your first box will be tailored to your preferences (i.e., hair type, skin tone, etc). You can shop your box on your profile page, get free shipping on that month’s sampled brands, and review your products for points—you’ll earn 10 Birchbox Points for each submitted feedback form.
Cost: $10/month + $4.95 Shipping. Annual subscription – $100 + Shipping.
Birchbox Canada is different from the US site. For instance, we don’t get that many perks or discounts. However, this month Birchbox has a promotion where everyone gets a unique code in their box that's good for a discount or prize. I received 10% off a purchase of $50+ in the Birchbox Shop.
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer
Made with avocado and olive oils, this 98% natural cream nourishes and hydrates skin.
Beauty Protector Beauty Wash Body Cleanser
I think this is about a 1 oz bottle, it doesn't say. I love the scent of Beauty Protector products and I love body washes!
PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray
A new non-drying spray that gives you soft, beach waves. It has the scent of ripe peach, fresh-cut grass, and white woods.
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator
This velvety highlighter leaves skin radiant with a subtle, shimmery glow.
Love this highlighter! It comes out pink, but once blended it leaves a nice, soft glow. A little goes a long way, but this is a tiny sample.
Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette Quad (Desert Bloom)
These are some very pretty eyeshadow shades and I like that there are 4, so you can play around and get different looks.
Emi-Jay Hair Tie
This is a bonus item. A set of 5 is $13. I don't use these, but I appreciate a bonus item.
This month's Birchbox has a total value of $37.02 which is great, but who would ever pay $18 for a small sample?! I'm not overly thrilled with it, but it's a decent box. I like the Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator and Beauty Protector Beauty Wash Body Cleanser the most.
