My First Birchbox
Hi Guy's, I hope you enjoy this blog about my first birchbox. For the last few months I've been obsessed with watching other peoples videos about there monthly birchbox. The excitement, the fun, the hoping you'll get something you'll use :) I admit I couldn't be a spectator any longer. I joined for myself.
For those of you who don't know what a "birchbox" is I'll enplane. Birchbox is a website that offers a monthly subscription plan. For $10 a month you get a pretty pink box in the mail containing 4 to 5 high end luxury samples. The price of the samples usually exceeds the price of the box.
To sign up you visit the site and choose your subscription plan. You can pay month to month or one lump sum for a whole year. After that you fill out a few quick quick questions telling them a bit about yourself ( skin color, texture, what type of product's you're interested in...). Each month they put together a group of samples they think you will like :) If you are interested in purchasing any of them full size you can then do so at birchbox. Also they offer a point system. You can accumulate point's to put toward future purchases for a discount.
I waited like a kid at Christmas for my first box. I couldn't wait to see what wondrous thing's were inside. They come between the 10th and the 14th each month depending on where you live. I finally received my little pink box in the mail on the 14th. It was heavier than I thought :) I was super excited !! When you open up the pink box you will find another box.
The first thing I saw when I opened the box was a little card telling me what I had received, and the theme of the month. The packaging and presentation were adorable. You really feel like your getting a little present.
And here's what was in my box. These are som BIG samples.

lashes it wraps them in a tube.

In every box there is something called an "extra" a smaller size sample or little goodie just for fun. This is it. The laundress delicate wash for your unmentionables.
I can't say I was thrilled about everything in my box, but I still think it was so much fun to have the experience. I am going to keep my subscription, and look forward to next month.
