Over the summer, my friend Sarah sent me an invite to join Birchbox.com, and I totally ignored it because I was busy.
A couple weeks ago, Sarah tweeted about some awesome product she got in her Birchbox and I was jealous. I wanted to try it! How it works is Birchbox sends you a monthly box of deluxe sample-sized goodies of beauty and cosmetic products for $10 each month.
If you like the products and buy them on Birchbox, you earn points towards future purchases. You can also earn points by answering products surveys on the site and by getting your friends to join.
Who doesn’t love the idea of a box of goodies showing up every month (and most especially during their birthday month)? I also love that this company was started by a pair of women who seem to geek out over beauty products AND technology even more than I do. I want them and this idea to win. I signed up last week and got my first box this week.
Here’s a quick video showing you what’s in my first Birchbox.com delivery
Let me know in the comments: What is your favorite beauty discovery of 2010?
Note: This is not a sponsored post. I just love what this company is up to. Like the idea? Sign up at Birchbox.com. (Want to help me earn points? I will send you an invite and I’ll get referral points when you join!)
