The more I play with beauty products, the more addicted I seem to become. I love testing out new make-up, hair care products and more! So this weekend I had the rare chance to go to New York City (kid free!) for the weekend and was thrilled to get the chance to visit Birchbox in real life (IRL for those who are up on their acronym use).
For those who don’t know, Birchbox is a monthly subscription box filled with beauty samples. There are also two store locations, one in SoHo, New York City and one in Georgetown, Washington, DC. Of course I somehow made it to the New York location versus the one in my own backyard. Isn’t that always the way?!
Once at the store, I loved getting to build my own Birchbox. For $15 you are able to select five samples, one from each category, and literally get to fill your own Birchbox.
For my box I chose the following; Malin+Goetz grapefruit gace cleanser, R+Co Park Ave Blow Out Balm, Whish shave grapefruit, Model Co lipstick in smitten, and Petaly Noir fragrance. Not too shabby if I must say!
I am happily curious to try them all but I must say that the blow out balm is my favorite so far!
Of course when in rome, or rather NYC, I had to try out a fun reverse french manicure and loved the bold look. Perfect for a care free weekend!
What do you think, have you tried Birchbox? Are you a fan? Is this Birchbox in real life experience on your New York City list?
