Birchbox is a beauty sample subscription service that delivers ‘4-5 beauty samples from luxury brands’. You can choose to pay $10.00/month, plus free shipping and handling. Or, you can get a year-long subscription for $110.00, which equals one month free. I personally have the monthly subscription.
Birchbox does customize their products and boxes, which is why you must fill out a beauty profile in the beginning. You can see a list of brands they work with here.
Birchbox is different from other subscription services because of their points program. For every 100 points you earn, you receive $10 off a full-size product purchase from the Birchbox store. Here’s how to earn Birchbox points:
1. For every $1 you spend in the Birchbox store, you earn 1 point.
2. You can earn points by referring people to Birchbox.
3. You receive 10 points for every review on samples you receive that you complete.
I have heard people say you can save up your points to get products in the Birchbox store for free, plus shipping, but I myself have never tried that, so I can’t confirm that for sure.
The Birchbox store does offer many promotional discounts and deals, which is worth checking out by itself, in my opinion.
