"Them" being the Birchbox team, started by two, obviously, smart and creative women who graduated from Harvard Business School (hence why I said obviously), named Katia and Hayley. Yes, spelled like mine, another (superficial) reason I like this company.
Birchbox revamped the whole idea of "Fruit of the Month" club, and is part of the growing trend of once-a-month sample boxes, such as GlossyBox, Beauty Army and Bark Box...yes, even your dogs can receive mail. Actually, mine already do. Just ask my mom and fellow blogger bestie, Analisa.
You probably already know most of this information, but Allure does a great job of breaking down several of the beauty sampling services. After reading this, I now want to subscribe to like five of them.
The Birchboxes are definitely worth $10 a month, and I have found some great products. I actually haven't purchased any of these in full-size editions yet, because that's the one problem, they can be a little pricey.
Here are some of my favorite Birchbox finds:
I just received my January Birchbox.
Klorane Dry Shampoo since I've heard great things about it. And the tea is made by a Buckingham Palace-approved British brand. Cheerio!
