What sets Birchbox apart from other monthly subscriptions is that they focus on beauty as a whole so you are receiving a variety of cosmetics, skincare, haircare, and other accessories. As a bonus they have an amazing point system! You can rack up points just for writing reviews. You can use those point on ANYTHING you wish to purchase online or in-store and they have a huge selection of products that provides a super fun shopping experience. For Just $10/month Birchbox will send you a curated box with 5 sample or deluxe sample size products. Occasionally they will send full-size products. If you are interested, you can check it out or subscribe to Birchbox here.
Birchbox also gathers products for limited edition boxes that you can purchase in addition to your subscription. I want to introduce you to 2 of those boxes that are available right now!
Cosmetic for Executive Women Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards has over 6,000 men/women who vote yearly on which beauty products are the best. With all of the choices available in the cosmetic industry, it’s nearly impossible to single handedly decide which products are worth trying. No need to worry about that, Birchbox has a few boxes that are curated based on the award-winning products.
I was so exited that Birchbox decided to pair two of the CEW boxes for $28. Individually Mass Appeal retails for $15 and Prestige Headliners retails for $18. I got both for $12.50 by using some points and a coupon code that Birchbox emailed me.

Summary on Mass Appeal: Purchased alone this box is $15 USD with a total value of $68.00 (per Birchbox). Uhhhm WOW!! Mass Appeal is worth it just for the Olay HydraSwirl!! I love that almost all items are full-size and appeal to everyone (duh…Mass Appeal). I have similar items by other brands and I thought this was a really good way to find some alternatives and switch up my daily routine. I already used all of the Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths (the first cleansing wipe that did NOT burn my eyes). My other favorite was the Olay HydraSwirl (the product is actually in a swirl inside the container) it is refreshing under the eyes but I can’t speak on long-term effects just yet. The last of my top 3 would be the Lineage Water Sleeping Mask, I have slept with this twice and woke up with very soft and fully moisturized skin. I highly recommend this box and I am considering purchasing a few more.
Summary of Prestige Headliners: Purchased alone this box is $18 USD. Birchbox did not provide a total value on this box and it was difficult to find prices on sample sizes. I estimate an approximate total value of $77.00. Prestige Headliners is a great way to try luxury brands without paying full-price. I found 5 keepers in this box. I was a little sad that most of the items are sample or deluxe sample sizes, however I guess that is expected with higher-end brands. My top pick is the Glamglow’s ThirstyMud it feels so lovely on my face that I can’t even put it into words. I got five uses out of this sample and have already purchased the full-size. My second favorite was the Nudestix Lip/Cheek Pencil. I was sent the absolute perfect pigment called Blush. Another versatile product the works amazing on my lips and cheeks. The Marula facial oil has one up on other oils because it doubles as a primer. I am definitely not a fan of facial oils, but this one worked well for me. All in all this is the perfect variety of luxury products to test drive. Once again just for the Nudestix alone, this box is well worth it!!
Don’t forget if you purchase the two boxes together it’s only $28.00 for an approximate total value of $145.00 and you rack up points to use on future purchases. Guys!! You just won’t find a better deal and that is why I LOVE Birchbox!!!!!
