I love my monthly Birchbox shipment. What girls wouldn’t love a beautifully wrapped box of beauty samples and other fun goodies! Don’t worry, guys, they didn’t forget about you, they also have Birchbox Man. In any given box, there are usually 6-8 high end samples for face cream to shampoo and nail polish to lip gloss. Each box is based on your own personal beauty profile which you can update at any time. Some boxes have even had some cute goodies such as headphones, hair ties and chocolate covered potato chips! The ability to try products first without spending hefty price tags is also a huge benefit. I’ve purchased full size items of some of the samples I tried and found out others didn’t really live up to the promises. Stupid stretch marks, I had such high hopes for that cream too! Every month is a surprise and I love Birchbox delivery day!
While I was looking at details about #Runchat’s I love Running challenge, I saw one of the prizes listed was a monthly subscription for Stridebox. They described it as a monthly box of assorted running products (apparel, nutrition, accessories, etc.). I had to check that out, it sounded just like Birchbox, but for runners! What a brilliant idea! I clicked on their site and immediately signed up for the first month once I read the details. At $15 a box, I felt like that was really reasonable and what a great way to try out new products. Just like Birchbox, you can cancel your subscription at any time. They just sent out the February boxes, so I’m anxiously awaiting the March delivery. Once the box arrives, I’ll be sure to share my thoughts about it.
Now, I’ll have two days to look forward to each month, Birchbox and Stridebox days!
Life is full of challenges and surprises.
