Awesome Gift Idea: Give a BirchBox Subscription!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Some things, like a new kind of gum, can be bought without any sort of trial run. It’s not imperative that you chew a piece of each flavor before selecting which flavor is really “right” for you. A new beauty product, on the other hand, is one of those things that you really have to try before you’re ready to buy it. This is particularly the case when you’re talking about luxury beauty products that can cost upwards of $50 for a bottle. If you don’t like it after you’ve already bought it you’re in trouble.

This is why I was super pumped when my friend refered me to Katia Beauchamp who started a beauty company called BirchBox. I’m always on the lookout for other entrepreneurial ventures to check out and I’m a huge supporter of small businesses so I thought I’d give Katia a call and see what BirchBox was all about.

Birchbox is a fun play on all of those old-school “[blank]-of-the-month” clubs (think wine of the month, cheese of the month, etc…). Instead of sending you something someting yummy for your tummy (ok, I sound like a 6 year old but go with it) they send you yummy treats for your face, hair & body. For a $10 monthly subsciption, BirchBox members get handpicked, oversized samples from luxury beauty brands. It’s the perfect way to discover and test out the best in beauty.

“Finding the perfect beauty product is thrilling, but the process itself can be expensive, frustrating and somewhat overwhelming,” says Co-Founder Katia Beauchamp. “Birchbox has stepped in to do the work for you. Curating the newest and best samples every month, Birchbox gives women a smart, streamlined way to try high-end products before they invest. At the same time, members are given the tools to become more beauty savvy as well as an easy way to buy full-sized products with confidence. It’s the fruit of the month, meets Sephora, meets Allure.”

Birchbox delivers anywhere in the United States and currently offers three membership options:

  • Yearly— $110 for 12 boxes, plus $10 off your first full-size product purchase
  • Monthly—$10 per box, cancel at any time
  • Gift—$110 for 12 boxes, plus $10 off their first full-size product purchase
