If you’re a beauty connoisseur, then chances are you already have a subscription to Birchbox. But if you have yet to sign up or have never heard about it, then tune in now! Birchbox launched in 2010 when co-founders Katia and Hayley decided there had to be a more efficient way for beauty enthusiasts to shop and try new products. Together they came up with a subscription model known to you and I as Birchbox. For only $10 per month, you will receive a handful of goodies to your doorstep. The best part about it is the monthly delivery is tailored to your preferences and it includes your favorite brands as well as up and coming brands. For those of you who find shopping for cosmetics overwhelming and don’t even know where to begin, you’ll be happy to know that these products have been reviewed hundreds and sometimes thousands of time making your decision making process a lot less stressful.
This summer, you can shop all of your favorite Birchbox goods, build your own box and call dibs on an exclusive 3-month subscription at the one and only Gap! They have teamed up to hopefully become your one stop shop this summer for basic apparel and beauty goods. If you’re anywhere near San Franciso, Los Angelas, Houston, Chicago, or New York, then you are in luck – unfortunately this sweet deal is only available in select cities.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the launch party at Gap’s San Fran flagship store on Market Street. It was a great event complete with champagne, appetizers and a DJ mixing up tunes. Many industry leaders, including event host Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam, were there networking while consumers and fans waited in line for beauty makeovers and to get the scoop on the latest and greatest products. It really is convenient that you can peruse an assortment of hair products, skin care essentials, makeup and fragrances all in one place. Subscribe to your first Birchbox here!
