I don’t know about you, but I have more cosmetic products in my bathroom than Sephora. This probably surprises people, since I rarely wear makeup, but there’s just something about skincare products that I find infinitely irresistible. I know I’m not the only one, because when I visit my girlfriend’s homes, I find products busting out of every nook and cranny. Not cheap ones, either. If I saved all the money I spend on products each year that turn out to be wrong for me, I could probably afford a small island by the time I’m forty. All this has a point, I promise.
Birchbox has found a solution to your beauty product overspending problem. For ten bucks a month they send you 4-5 deluxe trial sizes of high end cosmetic products specifically chosen for you. Well, not chosen for you, personally, but tailored to your likes, more or less. The brands they include are impressive: Nars, Jurlique, and Kiehl’s, to name a few. Even if the products don’t turn out to work for you, at least you’ll know that, and won’t waste money on a full size. Also, you can buy a year gift membership for $110.
