Everyone has different needs and everyone’s bodies reacts differently to different products. One product that your mother, sister or friend loves and lives by, might not be the perfect product for you. Dishing out cash for a product you don’t know you’ll love isn’t always tempting, but we’ve found something that totally is! Allow us to introduce you to Birchbox – a try-learn-buy beauty service that has been taking American beauty mavens by storm since 2010. The subscription box service officially launched in Canada earlier this month and we couldn’t wait to share the news with you!

So how does it work? Each month, Birchbox will send subscribers a 5-piece personalized selection of luxury beauty samples with hair, makeup, nail, skin and body products. They’ve got a roster of over 600 products and 50 brands including a variety of Canadian-made products and international brands that haven’t landed in Canada yet like Cynthia Rowley Beauty and Harvey Prince! Once you try a product and fall in love, the full sized item is available on Birchbox.ca for purchase. The best part is, each box only costs $14.95 including shipping and handling or $159.40 a year including shipping and taxes – it’s the perfect gift for yourself, commitment-phobes and beauty lovers!
