The queen of beauty subscription boxes is Birchbox. These boxes paved the way for other subscription boxes to grow. You receive 5 beauty samples each month, from high-end companies to the new trendy brands.

The experts at Birchbox research what’s trending in the beauty world each month, to provide you with the most relevant products.
Everyone’s skin and complexion are different. Birchbox meets your individual needs by asking you to fill out a beauty profile when signing up. This means your products are perfectly suited, just for you.

What you’ll get each month

• 5 amazing samples including make-up, skincare, fragrance, and haircare.
• Birchbox’s informative magazine, full of the latest beauty trends and news.
• Credits to spend in the exclusive Birchbox eShop.

All sorts of beauty essentials will be discovered in each month’s box. From make-up to body samples, you’ll never feel short of beautiful.

Without Birchbox, you may not discover the incredible up-and-coming brands they provide you. It’s a way to stay on top of the beauty world.

You’ll surprise yourself with how much you’ll use some of the samples. Before you know it, you’ll have a new favourite that you simply cannot be without.

As a bonus, you’ll get the inside scoop on all things beauty from Birchbox’s monthly magazine. If you’re unsure about the use of one of your samples, the magazine has you covered. With information on each product, plus excellent tips and tricks, you certainly won’t be bored.

Birchbox doesn’t reveal what you’ll receive each month until you open the box upon arrival. This makes the entire process exciting like you’re unwrapping a gift on your birthday.

The products you are given open up a whole new world of beauty for you. You won’t just be getting your standard UK brands that you’ve already heard of. Many samples are supplied from high-quality foreign brands from places like the US. Therefore, you can expect the unexpected when opening your box. No other day will compare with the excitement of your Birchbox delivery day.

The creators of Birchbox, Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp, had a vision. They wanted to step outside of the typical shopping experience which offers too much choice and little information. This is when Birchbox was born. An online subscription service that allows consumers to receive the best products for them, with lots of information and unheard-of brands.
