A monthly make-up treat, Birchbox

My friend and beauty blogger, Amanda turned me onto Birchbox. It’s a monthly box (via free shipping! yes, even to Hawaii!) sent  to you every month. In this cute brown clad box? Well it’s filled with cool sample size take-care-of-yourself goodies that any mama would love.

The subscription service costs $10 a month and comes with “five hand-picked deluxe samples.” It’s a fun treat each month and you get to try things that you may not have bought yourself…like those nail polish sticker-type thingies in silver and black tiger print. Those were fun!

Check out what was in my January box below…stila eyeliner (I’m LOVING this!), Borghese CuraForte Moisture Intensifier (again, LOVING!), C.O. Bigelow Lavender & Peppermint Shampoo & Conditioner (finished it), Juicy Couture perfume (don’t wear it but good to have on hand…you never know) and wichcraft Granola (because playing with makeup can build up quite the hunger!).


Sound fun? Wanna join? Get your own Birchbox subscription here

Note! It does lag a month if you are in Hawaii. My February box is on it’s way. I can’t wait!


  1. OMG this is just what I need! I NEVER pamper myself. I could definitely get used to a box of beauty goodies every month! And free shipping to Hawaii???? Yes please! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I used to subscribe to Birchbox and it was great. I love the whole idea of Birchbox. I always feel like it’s christmas, I just can’t wait to tear open those pink tissue paper. I no longer am subscribe to them, but I was thinking about go with the Conscious box. It’s exactly like Birchbox, but it’s all organic and natural products. Oh wait, the products are not all makeup, tho. It’s a mix bag of stuff, but they are all organic. I thought that was cool.

    • That’s cool Jen! There is another one called EcoEmi that is all natural/organic products. I think it’s like $15/month. It all depends on what you’re into, but it seems like there are so many options out there and I love it!

  3. How fun, I love getting mail! It’s especially great because I never know what kind of makeup to buy for myself so it would be nice to get to try it out in the comfort of your home.

  4. I love this idea, it’s basically like a present each month. The box is delivered and you’re like, “what’s this?” presents for me. I will check the site pronto. Thanks Sarah!

  5. Love it! I bookmarked it and just might do this for a gift for someone soon. Although I’d love to be “gifted” as well! HA HA

  6. Yay Sarah!! I didn’t know you got this subscription service! Super cool and I’m glad you love it! There are more popping up all over the place! I just did a review on Beauty Army which is awesome too! Shipping to Hawaii is key tho for you obviously so that’s awesome! xoxo
