A friend gifted me with this awesome subscription to a company called Birchbox for Christmas. Given my obsession with beauty products, I cannot believe I had never heard of it. Each month they send you a box of different beauty product samples based on your personal needs and likes. They have you fill out a questionnaire and base your samples on the answers your provide.

My very first Birchbox consisted of the following:

Viva La Juicy perfume

Love, smells amazing. My soon to be Sister-In-Law wears this and always smells so pretty.

Jouer Lip Gloss in “Birchbox Pink”

Cute color, Chloe stole it from me before I could try it on. It’s “her size” and therefore by default her property.

VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything: Face-Hand-Body Lotion

This stuff is awesome. My skin feels amazing and it goes on easily and doesn’t leave that sticky feeling a lot of other lotions do.

Zoya Nail Polish in Kristen

This grayish blue shade is out of my comfort zone which usually consists of pinks and reds. I love it.

EBOOST Orange Natural Energy Booster

This was included as a “Lifestyle Extra” and happened to be my favorite thing in this month’s Birchbox. It tastes great, put me in the best mood, is all natural and (best of all!) NO ASPARTAME or SUCRALOSE. Hallelujah P.S. Kelly Ripa and Heidi Klum swear by it. I’ve already ordered the full size version, and as a bonus was able to use the 20% off coupon they offered me for signing up.

For $10 a month this is something I don’t plan on giving up anytime soon.

    Thanks for sharing! This is such a fun idea – to get a package full of goodies every month or to gift it to a friend!

    Do the boxes really contain things that will be used and liked? Can you join it and if you dont like it, stop it from coming monthly?
