Give Your Makeup Bag Some Spring Training With A Birchbox

It’s spring now and the weather’s beautiful, so I suggest trading your snuggie for a Birchbox. A what box? Glad you asked!

It’s a magical box filled with the most awesome beauty samples that you can have shipped directly to your door for only $10 per month (and free shipping!). If you like the samples, which include makeup, hair care, beauty tools and even snacks like mini Larabars, you can then order them in full sizes directly from Birchbox’s online shop. And if you don’t like them? Regift and forget about them.

We’re big fans of Birchbox, a startup that sends women deliveries of high-end beauty samples every month. (Makeup in the mail? Yes, please!).
