You, you, you oughta knoOOoow…

… that birchbox is currently offering 25% off of all their full sized products through 10/31 using the code bblove25. Trillas, that is a great deal!!!

What is birchbox? Do you live under a rock? It’s a beauty product ecommerce site with a twist. You can pay $10/month and get a box full of fab samples picked for you (I’ve been known to get full sized products too, like nailpolish and Stila eyeliner). I’ve discovered some tried and true products this way. In fact, some of my favorites are pictured below. And yes, you can get 25% off ALL of them. And if you’re not a birchbox member, here’s my invitation link for you to use to sign up. It’s well worth the monthly fee of $10. 

Top Row:

By Terry Light Expert Foundation Brush: This is a great foundation for days you don’t need as much coverage. The color looks kinds of weird coming out, but it truly disappears into your skin and just makes you glow. Love it!

Benefit Foamingly Clean Facial Wash: I got this in my September birchbox and was amazed at how easily it removed my makeup at the end of the day. It comes out as a cream and foams up nicely. It also has a really lovely smell.

Jouer Moisturizing Lip gloss in “birchbox pink”: I’m a lipgloss junkie but couldn’t really justify purchasing yet another pink lipgloss, even though I’d been oogling the subtle yet vibrant shade on this one for months after I’d received it in a birchbox this past summer. Enter the 25% off coupon and justification is complete.

Boscia BB Cream: I didn’t really get the hype behind beauty balms, until I received a sample of this goodness in a tube. It moisturizes, minimize pores, provides SPF and has great skin coverage all in one easy step. It was actually the first full sized product I purchased from birchbox and I’m almost out! Thank goodness for 25% off!

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner: I actually received a full sized version of this eyeliner in a birchbox and loved it so much I’ve since bought it in other colors. It glides right on and is easy enough to maneuver that you can go with a light line or a big ole heavy line without many makeup skillz required.

Bottom Row:

Twistband hair ties: I’ve gotten a few of these in my birchboxes over the months and always keep them handy. They aren’t so great for holding your hair for working out, but I keep one on my wrist at work and when I’m out and about for a quick and cute ponytail or bun on my head as needed.

Kerastase Cristalliste Lumierre Liquide: Whew! That’s a mouthful. But, if you have long hair, this product is essential. It’s pricey, but get 25% off and it’s about the same price as most other salon quality products. And it’s totally worth it.

Zoya Nailpolish: I fell in love with this brand after getting the prettiest neutral shade (called Pandora) in my birchbox, and miracle of miracles, it went on totally opaque after two coats! I have grown to love Zoya polish not only because of the range of fab colors they offer, but also because their polish is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate. Now, I honestly don’t know what those are except that they use formaldehyde to preserve dead animals, so I’m pretty sure I don’t really want that on my nails.

Happy shopping and if you aren’t a birchbox member get on that! I think there is a short waiting list right now, but you better go ahead and sign up so you don’t miss out any longer than you have to.
