Birch Box

We admit it- we are super guilty of buying things just for the free gifts/samples involved--- Sephora, you get us every time. While abroad this summer we heard from a friend about a business her friends started, and we are now total converts to this cool new way to shop for cosmetics online.

Birchbox.com is a new site that offers memberships for samples. Ten bucks a month will get you four to five deluxe samples from high-end brands (think Kiehls, Nars, benefit...) shipped to your door. Inviting friends to join scores you loyalty points which can be automatically used towards purchasing full sized items right off the site. 
As lovers of good design, we would be remiss not to mention that the packaging is a work of art. Obviously the concept and products from birchbox are excellent, but opening a carefully-wrapped box filled with a sea of pink tissue paper and hand-tied black ribbon is like having twelve chic birthday gifts sent to you each year.

Good things really do come in small packages!
