Birchbox is the premiere beauty sampling service in the US and it's the service that launched the entire beauty box craze. Established in New York in 2010 by two friends, Birchbox now has operations in the UK, France, Spain, Belgium, and Canada.

Your samples will include beauty products from all different categories, including makeup, skincare, haircare, and fragrance. You'll get to try cult favorites, new launches, and more. Birchbox will also try to tailor products to meet your beauty needs by following your Beauty Profile. Things like hair colour, eye colour, skin tone, and hair texture is taken into consideration.

It's Birchbox's 5 year anniversary so they are celebrating... us. I love the box! As a thank you, each box includes a unique promo code for 20% off at the Birchbox shop.

First look

Tocca Nourishing Body Scrub in Green Tea Lemon (1oz, $5.60)
Sugar scrubs are great and this one smells very refreshing.

Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Volumizing Blow Dry Spray (1oz, $4.50)
This spray smells like oranges. It stimulates hair follicles and encourages healthy growth. 

Japonesque Velvet Touch Eye Shadow in Shade 2 (Full size, $12)
This is a light beige hue with a hint of shimmer. It's actually a great neutral for day or night. The compact case is beautiful too! The best part? This is a FULL SIZE product! We don't often get those in Birchbox.

100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream (8ml, $7.80)
The caffeine and green tea are supposed to reduce puffiness and dark circles. It's also moisturizing so may help with fine lines and wrinkles.

Raw Spirit Fragrances in Citadelle (Sample)
This fragrance features sustainably harvested Haitian vetiver, marigold, pear, bergamot, lemon, spices, amber wood, musk and cedar wood. It's fresh and spicy at the same time.

My September Birchbox Canada included five products, with an approximate retail value just under $30 CDN. This seems to be a near perfect box I have a skincare, body care, hair care, makeup, and fragrance. Every box is ticked! I love sugar scrubs. The eye shadow is amazing. The eye cream is much needed and the hair spray will prove useful. The only thing I'm underwhelmed about is the fragrance.

Now for an October sneak peek:

Harness the power of beauty!
This month's samples will inspire your confidence and boost your mood.

  2. Any idea why when I try to subscribe it won't give my country of origin as Canada? Only the US and its territories are listed. :-( did anyone what run into this?
