I’ve been a Birchbox devotee for about three years and get really excited when I find something that I love so much that I actually end up ordering it. Here are the 9 things that I’ve purchased after receiving Birchbox samples:
Benefit The POREfessional I have massive pores and this is the only product that helps diminish them a little bit.
LA FRESH® Eco Beauty Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover (2x!) These wipes take off all of my polish in a quick swipe and smell decent. I’ve ordered these twice because I love them so much.
Benefit Boi-ing This is a little cakey but offers such good coverage, which is essential sometimes.
theBalm® cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One I’m a lover of NARS Orgasm blush, but it’s a little bright for fall/winter. This color has flecks of gold and looks really pretty in cooler months.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit OBSESSION. It took me a little time to get into this; it doesn’t foam and you’re supposed to put it on dry skin. Once I started using it, though, I noticed that my skin was clearer, softer, and less red. I started using new products from the derm and quickly ordered my Liz Earle again.
Folle de Joie eau de parfum I’m not sure what the notes are in this but it just smells so sweet and light. It’s my go-to daytime scent.
amika Bombshell Blowout Spray I’m not sure what this spray is supposed to do, but it’s replaced my previous products that I used prior to drying my hair.
kate spade new york Twirl As much as I complain about getting scents in Birchboxes, I have found two that I love. This is a little bright and very fun.
Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo I’ve tried so many dry shampoos and this is the one that I go back to. It gives some texture and OOMPH without getting greasy.

Number 4™ Volumizing Shampoo — I love all their products
Kiehl’s Eye Alert — helps reduce the puffiness big time
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer — really works well and “manly”
Kérastase Pâte Capital Force Densifying Modeling Paste — for my hair
So funny, Gary, because I HATE the No. 4 stuff! The smell irritates me so much. Good to know about the Keihl’s … always looking for good eye creams.
I remember you saying that about the fragrance. I will say that it does vary. One of their scents I did not like, maybe it was the “moisturizing one”. That being said, my hair always feels super soft after using them.
I believe at the airport you can get a free Keihl’s facial too. I did that in their San Francisco store and it was a great way to try new product. Plus, my face felt amazing.
