Birchbox is $10.00/month and they send five sample beauty and skin care products, every month. Subscribers can now upgrade to a $30.00 box. The $30.00 box will contain 2 full size beauty or skin care products, along with the five usual products.
When you sign up, you fill out a profile, so Birchbox can customize your box to your preferences. There is a regular monthly box and they also have guest editor boxes. Birchbox releases spoilers and a full reveal of the guest editor boxes, so you will know which box to choose. I actually have two Birchbox subscriptions. This is the box for my newest account.

I love the colorful boxes this month.
There is always a general welcome note about that particular month.
There is an information card on the back with all the products in the box.
Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads $3.60 These pads go under your eyes and they help combat fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness. These look just like my ToGoSpa eyes.
RUSK® Hair Care Elixir Mist $10.56 When I first saw this, I thought it was dry shampoo, thankfully I was wrong. This protects your hair against the sun, heat and it helps fight frizz.
dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser $2.50 I get so many lotions and moisturizers, I am always glad to get more cleansers. I love dr. brandt's line of products and this is perfect for my travel bag.
COOLA® SPF 50 Sport – Mango $3.20 While this would have been a better choice in my Jun-Aug boxes, I am still happy to get a sunscreen. This has a spf of 50, is water-proof and has a nice mango scent, instead of coconut. You all know I am not fond of coconut.
Benefit They're Real! Push-up Eyeliner $1.84 I have seen this product and I am really never been tempted to try it. I am barely talented enough to apply regular eyeliner, this is pretty tricky.
These are my swatches. I did the middle line first, then the one on the right, and my third try was the far left. I finally got the hang of it, but I find it too tricky to apply on my eyelid. It did have some good lasting power as it took
Final Thought: This was a pretty nice box. The total retail value was $21.70 and I loved everything in the box but the eyeliner, which was the cheapest item! I am really excited to get a hair product from Birchbox that isn't dry shampoo or regular shampoo. You can try Birchbox with this link and the code 5BOX to get your 1st box for $5.00.
