I’m always on the hunt for fun gift ideas. So when one of my favorite publicist friends started singing the praises of BirchBox, I decided to check it out. It’s basically a subscription service in which you receive a box filled with four to five samples from various spa and luxury brands each month. From skincare products, makeup, fragrance, and more, the goodies are all generously sized so as to allow you a chance to determine if they’re right for you. Think of it as a beauty box of the month club. For beauty junkies, it’s the ideal gift. While we all have our favorites spa brands, this is a great way to branch out and sample new products. You can also customize your box by filling out a Beauty Profile. That way you’re sure to get products chosen for your specific skin type and coloring. Membership definitely has its benefits.
