So lately I have gotten into the new trend of subscription boxes. A friend told me about birchbox and I decided to sign up. Its a monthly box of samples of health and beauty products. For $110 a year or $10 a month you sign up and have no idea what you are going to get. Since signing up for birchbox I’ve also signed up for ipsy and naturebox.
There are so many I could go box crazy. I’ve always liked ‘a month’ clubs but they are usually so expensive that I couldn’t afford them. For example, Harry and David fruit of the month is $405 a year and really the spoonable pears are the only thing they have that is very special.
You can also go on to any of the sites and order that month’s box items at full sizes for discount with free shipping. If you like everything than you can order a full size version of the box. I’ve already ordered a few things that I’ve liked. Its a lot of fun.
The coolest things about birchbox is you get points for putting reviews on their website of the products you receive. You get 10 points per review and 100 points you get $10 off. So I’ve only been a member for 3 months and already I’ve accumulated 168 points. Not bad. I can then get discounts. Also if you buy full size products you get points that add up like I ordered nail polish for $8 including shipping and got 22 points. Pretty cool!
Naturebox is cool because you get full size bags of all healthy products and you can go on the website and pick what you’d like or be surprised. I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks so I love that. Another box I just signed up for is called Goodies that is only $7 and gives 4-5 full size healthy snacks that are a surprise but like birchbox they also have a points system that can save you money. I mean what else can you get for $7 outside of a fast food meal? So fun!
So here are some fun things I’ve gotten the last few months:
