Summary List Placement
People love samples. Just walk around any Costco or Trader Joe’s for living proof of our love for trying new things. In the beauty world, we have Birchbox. Granted, you do have to pay for Birchbox (whereas you could theoretically make an entire free meal at Costco), but the idea is similar: You get to sample a new product and figure out whether you want to commit to the full-size version.
In many ways, the Birchbox sampling process is much better than that of a grocery store. For a small monthly fee, Birchbox sends all the samples directly to you, so you don’t have to leave your house and compete with other shoppers, and they’re personalized to your exact needs and preferences. Ultimately, you waste less time and money by using Birchbox to find your next beauty or hair-care product.

Despite this slight price increase, we think Birchbox is still a great value.
Two Insider Reviews reporters put the Birchbox experience to the test to show you how it works and what to expect.
