Products I love: Birchbox

I'm very vocal about my love for the company Birchbox- you fill out a beauty profile, and for $10 a month, they send you a box full of all sorts of goodies, usually valued around $30. I held off for over a year when it came to signing up- I was afraid I'd get stuff I'd never use- but after coveting what other people were getting month after month, I gave it a shot.

Let me tell you this: I would eat ramen for every meal before giving up my Birchbox subscription. Not only have I received some awesome nail polish from them (you know I'm a junkie), but I've also discovered products that I'd otherwise be oblivious to. Take my new best friend, Miss Jessie: I received Miss Jessie's Quick Curl cream in my March box and I've never looked back- it's that good. The same is true for this month's Color Club polish- called "Disco Nap," it's very similar to Chanel's Gold Friction- my favorite polish in the history of Gigi, which I used exclusively for a summer before running out (saddest day of my life).

Anyway, here's a sneak peek into this month's box, along with a list of the contents. If you like beauty products but hate spending an arm and a leg just to find out you don't really like what you bought, Birchbox is the way to go.div style="font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; ">
