Attention Beauty Junkies!

T minus four days 'till Christmas! This being the case I feel I should probably take the opportunity to blog about philanthropy, and good works, and maybe even wax a little philosophical about the "reason for the season."  And that would be fine. Those things are important!


But let's be real. What I really want to talk about right now is something completely different: beauty samples. Oh yeah. I said it.  Now, I'm not entirely sure whether I'm completely behind the times on this one or if its a relatively new concept, but here's what I discovered while perusing beautytidbits.com the other day: you can actually buy a beauty sample subscription.

                                                        What?? Are you kidding me??

I did a little research and it turns out that there are several websites that offer this phenomenal service. The top two contenders IMO (in my opinion) are Birchbox and myglam.

Each of these two websites, for a small fee ($10/mo) will mail you a once-a-month  package with 4 or 5 deluxe high end beauty samples ranging from skin care to hair products to cosmetics. Hallelujah! It's like the beauty-junkie equivalent of telling a crack addict they can order their fix through drugstore.com. Now, the only tough question is: which of these fabulous services do I order for me and which one goes as a gift subscription to the bestie?

Hmmm. Maybe there's potential for a giveaway here...

Have you ever tried a sample subscription? Love it or hate it?

  1. Hi Jenn! Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I am following back.

    A couple months ago, I looked at doing Birchbox and never got around to actually signing up. I think I will get on that now that you've reminded me. I love getting stuff in the post AND I love beauty products.

    I'll check myglam bag out, too before I make my decision.

    Look forward to getting to know you! xo, Adrienne
