There are a number of sites that allow you to pay a membership of sorts so that you can get an amazing assortment of products that are perfect for you whether they're shoes, jewelry etc. I have to say that Birchbox has become my favorite site. You have the option between paying a monthly fee of $10 or an entire year for $110 with bonus points to receive oversized deluxe sample size beauty products. By providing info via a survey you can accrue points towards obtaining full sized product.
Now people will love this concept as they perceive samples as the perfect item to try out new product that they have yet to try. But I LOVE it because as someone who is constantly jetsetting whether I'm at HSN, designing collab lines or doing other segments, having the sample sized items allows me to ensure that I will have the perfect amount of items that are TSA approved. Above, are images from my box in June which include a sample of Kate Spade's Twirl, Pangea Organic's Facial Toner, Laura Geller's Baked Blush (which I have been using for years and love that this was a full product) and Deborah Lippmann's The Stripper To Go for Go-Go Girls which is a fab lavender nail lacquer remover. Fab packaging and items that I'm either a huge fan of or those that I am glad that I got a chance to try out. I also love that this curated box was focused on perfect travel items and as I just got back from Dominican Republic yesterday, this came in handy! You can also visit the site to find out how to videos, trend articles, photoshoots and to get the items that you love for purchase.
You can get in on the fun and for July, Birchbox is launching their collaboration with Cynthia Rowley who designed their July Birchbox and curated the contents with her favorite beauty must-haves. The box is still available to consumers who sign up to be a member by June 30th! As a fan of Cynthia Rowley, I'm loving that she has included her custom design nail strips by Incoco, AHAVA's Placid Bath Salts in Green Apple as well as their Dead Sea Mud, Lather Bamboo Lemongrass Body Scrub, Lather AHA Hand Creme with Evening Primrose and Tweezerman Zip File. Such a fab way to get introduced to Birchbox!
