I welcomed this little box of treasures in the mail today. Since it's that time of year for students to start back up at school, Birchbox played off of that idea and did a 'Beauty School' theme. As a future teacher myself, I adore this theme and I REALLY like the organization they teamed up with this month (more on that below).
Before I jump in to what I got this month, I wanted to recognize Birchbox a little. I've seen a lot of people complaining about this months box saying they didn't get many products or they don't feel like it was worth it. I want to say that every box is worth more than the $10 you pay, so you are definitely getting your money's worth each time. While you might not be impressed with the items in each months box, that is what the subscription service is for! To find items you like and ones you might not like without having to spend full price on an item. If you do end up loving them (hopefully you do!), then you can go out and buy it. If you didn't like it, then you didn't pay an arm and a leg and left with a hole in your pocket. No worries. :)
Birchbox is always thinking outside the box (no pun intended). They have great customer service, the themes are wonderful, their website is user-friendly, they have YouTube videos to go along with the themes and products each month, and they always think of the small things. As a detail oriented person, I love that about the company. For example, this month, the little 'cozy' that was placed around the Schick razor... innovative!
Needless to say: I am overly impressed with this company. End of rambling. :)
Let's dig in!
Pencils of Promise. Random fact for all you JUSTIN BIEBER fans: The founder of this organization is Scooter Braun's adorable brother, Adam Braun. The organization helps to build schools around the world. Birchbox is donating 15% of all full-size orders this month to help build a school in Central America. Even better, Birchbox is giving a MINIMUM of $25,000. Another reason I love Birchbox, they have fully committed to this and are promising AT LEAST that much. Right on! Please check out PoP's website. The organizations story is incredible and they are making a lasting change in children's lives day in and day out.
