Calling beauty lovers everywhere! Birchbox is a monthly subscription service offering samples in the latest products so you can try before you buy. Creators Katia and Hayley got together in 2010 to establish an internet based company that allowed customers to receive monthly shipments of sample-sized beauty, perfume, snack and lifestyle products. Using a survey to personalize samples, Birchbox sends out a box of surprise items tailored specifically to your shopping habits. The company also grew to include male Birchbox shipments in 2012, which is geared toward grooming and lifestyle products. Love what you got in your Birchbox? Their website also offers a fully stocked supply of all full-sized products, which they tend to offer to their customers at a discount. Birchbox is a fun way to treat yourself -- it's like Christmas every month with a box of new goodies to try.
