How was your weekend?? Mine was pretty good. The bf was out of town with friends…I got some clothes organized and worked out and spent time with the family. Soooo, I love mail, I love cosmetics, and I love surprises, so you can imagine how excited I am about Birchbox. Basically, you pay $10 a month and once a month you get a shipment of cosmetic samples (and possibly even one or more full-sized products). I signed up last month right after the last shipment – when I found out about it on the Fabulous K blog here. This month’s box came with the following:
- Xen-Tan Sunless Tan Lotion
- Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion
- kate spade new york Twirl
- Herban Essentials towelettes and…
- A full-size Laure Geller Brush-N-Brighten
Another one I found recently but have yet to sign up for is Foodzie. It’s the same type of thing with various “artisan” “gourmet” whatever foods, but for $20 a month instead of $10, I am still on the fence. Since it’s a by-the-month thing I suppose I can just cancel after a month if I don’t think it’s worth it, so if I do it I will let you know! Do you know of any other companies like these?
Follow up …. I found a couple more of these samples-by-mail companies in the past couple of days if you’re interested:
Eco-Emi Chic eco-friendly products delivered to your door once a month.
Craft Coffee Company Amazing coffee experiences delivered right to your door.
