This moth I was given a choice to get my normal Birchbox with sample gathered from my profile or to choose the EveryGirl box.  I chose to give the EveryGirl box a try, and I’m pleased with what I got! But first lets talk about this box…

This is a very large box for two very small boxs…

Ok so if you are not on board with Birchbox what are you waiting for?!  One of the reasons I keep coming back to Birchbox is their  points system where you use your points to buy products in the Shop. You can get points a few different ways: One is by referring people (50 points),  buying products in the shop (1 point for every $1 spent), and by reviewing the products you received in your box (10 points for each review).  And… 100 points=$10.  So with a little math you can see that if you review all your products every month, you will get, on average, $5 in points a month.  I like to look at that as getting my box for half price!

  1. I’m a HUGE fan of Benefit’s They’re Real! Whenever I’m not using my good old maybelline rocket mascara, that’s the one I always go for. I was also wondering if you’ve heard of Vain Pursuits before? I think they do personalized skincare?
