Birchbox is a service that packs five to six samples of high-end beauty products, whether it be skin care, hair care, makeup or nail care in a cute little brown and pink box each month. The box is customized for each client depending on their product interest. I have found that it is a highlight of my month to open that little box and find new goodies to try out. Mind you, these "samples" seem to last me a couple of months each.

One thing that I recently learned about Birchbox is that they will randomly ask you if you would like to try a product line in addition to your already scheduled monthly Birchbox delivery. Of course, when asked, I said "yes" since the box would be free with no delivery charge! In March I received an extra pink and brown Birchbox delivery containing products from the Vichy skin care line including a cleanser/toner, a 24 hour hydrating cream, a night time firming and anti-wrinkle cream and an eye make-up remover. The Vichy line claims to be the #1 selling skin care line in Europe. My favorite product of the bunch is the Vichy Aqualia Thermal which is a hydrating cream. The only minus to this product is that is does not contain a sunscreen so there is the need to apply that in addition to the Vichy cream if applied in the morning. I have checked out the Vichy website and it does contain an extensive line of skin care, sun care and body care products, some of which have received Good Housekeeping awards. This little bonus box has definitely sparked my interest in the Vichy line and I may need to try out some of their other products namely the anti-aging line.
