My 5 Favorite Birchbox Discoveries of All Time!
Birchbox is the first subscription box I ever I joined (it’s my gateway box and the reason this site exists), and after 7 years of subscribing, I thought it would be fun to recap some of my all-time favorite discoveries!
Here are my 5 favorite Birchbox discoveries:
One of my major beauty routine changes over the past few years has been lip color. I used to only wear tinted lip balms and very subtle color, but a Stila sample in a Birchbox changed everything! (Pretty much any photo of me on this site – I’m wearing this lipstick.) The color lasts all day and also wears down evenly, too. It’s perfect!
I’ve used acetone-free nail polish removers before, but they still smelled like nail polish remover. This is the only nail polish remover I’ve found that smells lovely! It’s scented with organic essential oils! (And I just discovered they have individual nail polish remover wipes, too!)
This is a classic subscription box discovery that changed my foundation application game years ago. (If you aren’t familiar, you wet this sponge, squeeze out excess water, then bounce it across your skin to apply foundation/concealer/etc. And you get a basically flawless application.) And, I recently learned to use this sponge to apply setting powder, too. It’s perfect for getting undereye areas completely covered!
This is one of those items I thought was gimmicky and never would have bought on my own, but since it was in the Millenial Time Capsule Limited Edition Birchbox, I was down to try it. And now I get it! I need all the lighting/filters/etc help I can get when it comes to pictures (especially selfies), and this gives such a flattering light! (You just clip it to your phone, tablet, etc.)
And, I just recently realized I can use this on my laptop for video conference meetings!
Living proof is one of my favorite hair care brands. Amazing scents, ingredient-conscious, and the formulas are fab, too. I’ve tried a lot of dry shampoo over the years, and this is the one I always come back to. I’ve transitioned from washing my hair daily to every 3 or 4 days, and this formula has made it happen! It absorbs oil, adds a little volume, and smells SO good!
