The original beauty subscription box, Birchbox sends you five samples each month – from well-known beauty companies to cult products to up-and-coming brands – in order to help you find the products that suit you.

Each box is the product of careful and continuous research into the latest beauty and lifestyle trends.

What’s more, since everyone has slightly different skin and beauty routines, you can fill in a Beauty Profile to make sure that the products in your Birchbox match your needs as closely as possible.

Each month in your Birchbox, you will receive:

  • A selection of five make-up, skincare, fragrance or haircare samples
  • The Birchbox magazine – full of beauty advice and the latest news
  • The chance to earn credits towards purchasing products on the online Birchbox Shop

Each month, you will find some make-up samples, bodycare, as well an accessory to make you look and feel beautiful from head to toe.

Thanks to Birchbox, you’ll discover the latest must-have cosmetic products from make-up to skin care, nail care to fragrances, hair care to lifestyle accessories.

With five new products to sample every month, you’ll be sure to find something you like, and which then becomes a regular addition to your make-up bag.

A Birchbox with beauty products

Along  with the samples, there is a comprehensive editorial magazine full of information on the products inside, as well as more general beauty and lifestyle tips and news.

Every month, the subscribers will be surprised with the items inside the box. Opening every box will be filled with delight and excitement.

One of the main highlights about Birchbox is that you get to discover products that you can’t necessarily find in the UK – often by cult French or US brands. As a result, we can guarantee a moment of surprise and excitement after the postman delivers the latest box when you get to test the bestselling beauty products from around the world.


Birchbox was created by Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp, who met at Harvard Business School, and were passionate about creating a service that would enable consumers to bypass the inconvenience of retail shopping, where there is often too much choice and little information. With this in mind, they came up with the idea of an online subscription service to help consumers find the beauty products that really work for them, and to discover brands they otherwise might not have tried.
