I hope you’ve heard of Birchbox because it’s one of the coolest concepts out there. For $20/month Birchbox will send a package full of grooming and beauty goodies. Every month is different and you are able to try out products you would otherwise never think to buy or don’t want to buy out of fear that you will not like the product. Basically, your whole world will open up to new products! All I can say after this experience is ‘Gimme More‘ because I have new found love for grooming products.
My friend (and former resident while I was an RA at BU) and I both received a box courtesy of Birchbox so we decided to combine our posts. Alana is the blogger of The Good Girl Gone Blog! Below you’ll find our answers to questions we thought of. We figured you can have the guy’s opinion and girl’s opinion! Don’t forget to click over to her blog to see more of my thoughts–INCLUDING MY FAVORITE PRODUCT!
What did you love?
I’m a huge fan of packaging and I love the creative simplicity each Birchbox possesses. Every item fits perfectly into the packaging. I had a little too much fun opening the box! I actually didn’t want to ruin it. I also love that I can experience new products I would otherwise not come across or pay for out of fear that I will have wasted a ton of money.
I love the thrill of opening a box and not knowing what to expect. It was so much fun to open the box and examine all the items inside. It was interesting, I didn’t end up liking the product I was most excited about, which was a bit of a bummer. BUT, because I was able to test it in my Birchbox, I’ll know not to purchase the full sized version. Basically, Birchbox just saved me money and unwanted frustration.
What would you change?
I received four items and two were for shaving. I wish that it was more eclectic beauty and grooming products. I also receive a watch which is cool, but I am not a huge fan of watches. I guess that is risk in every box. You won’t always get things you 100% love.
Honestly, I don’t think I would change a thing. Initially, my thought was that I want to be able to fill out a profile saying what things I like and don’t like, and then I realized that that feature already exists!
