Spend $30+ = get 10% off sitewide
Spend $50+ = get 15% off sitewide
Spend $75+ OR be a member of the ACE program = get 25% off sitewide
Now, I was, until my recent move to LA, the Director of Merchandising at Birchbox, so I know this assortment like the back of my hand (and I’ve tried most of it). So, here is my insider’s peak at the best stuff to snag with this insane discount – brands that never go on sale, new cool launches, essentials for #MomLife and more:
The Skincare Made Easy Kit – Don’t yet have an established skincare routine that works for you? This is effectively a starter kit to introduce you to the key stages of a great skincare routine – which as a Mom, you REALLY need to keep your skin in check. All of the brands & products are highly rated and effective, making it easy to pick and choose what you want to add to your routine.
The Treat Yourself Beauty Kit – So much luxurious self care (omg I HATE the phrase “self care” I truly can’t believe I just said that) in such a cute package. These creams, masks, scrubs and more were curated by the Merchant team to ensure you have a pampered break in the middle of the hectic Holiday season. My personal favorite? The Odacite Dull Skin Serum Concentrate – exactly what the doctor ordered for tired Mom skin.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask – This mask is worth every penny (except in this case you’ll have to use less of them!) Totally non-toxic, will make your skin instantly glow, smells amazing, and works on all skin types, even the very most sensitive.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser – You’ve probably never heard of this brand, and they’re fine with that. This cult product from the UK has been a morning staple in my bathroom for years. This extremely gentle cream cleanser leaves skin clean, hydrated, refreshed, and comes with an adorable cloth towel accessory.
Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream – For me (and my husband!) this is an absolute must-have in the winter months when skin is so prone to getting dry. This ultra hydrating ceramidin cream will truly bring your dry, flaky skin back to life overnight.
Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment – Using the all-mighty power of lactic acid, this single products hydrates, exfoliates and plumps your skin. It’s a miracle product! Not recommended for very sensitive skin.
Sunday Riley Let It Glow Kit – Want to try Sunday Riley, but a little intimidated by the options? The Let It Glow Kit is the way to go. First of all, the deal is insane even before the discount ($235 value for $175) and gives you the chance to try all of Sunday’s best products in smaller sizes before you commit the the big guns.
RMS Living Luminizer – You’ve heard me sing my praises about Living Luminizer before. Hands down, any time someone compliments my skin or telling me I’m glowing, it’s not because I’m pregnant or just got engaged….it’s because I’m wearing this. Sold yet?
MAC Strobe Cream – There is a reason this product flies off the shelves year after year. Strobe Cream is best used after your serum/moisturizer and can be worn alone or under CC cream/foundation for a lit from within glow. I have rarely attended a wedding or party without this bad boy on the last few years.
Stila HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara – My all time favorite mascara.
ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm – I have one of these in my purse or diaper bag at all time – it’s a super lightweight lip balm with the PERFECT amount of tint to keep your lips hydrated and supple.
Benefit Cosmetics Triple Decker Decadence Limited Edition Value Set – I love Benefit makeup because it’s super straight forward, not intimidating and highly effective. If you’re looking to toss out your crappy makeup and replace with a few new staples, this is an easy way to do it for a great value.
The Holiday Nail Care Kit – When was the last time you got a manicure? Yeah. Exactly. I have become an expert at DIY nails since motherhood began, and this kit is a foolproof starter set for any Mom (or other busy lady) to master the art.
The Intro to Dry Shampoo Kit – Want to up your dry shampoo game…or not sure where to start? This awesome kit gives you travel & sample sizes of a bunch of Birchbox’s best selling dry shampoos, so you can decide for yourself which will be your next go-to (and you’ll always have an extra in your purse!)
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle – If you already know, then you know (and your prob have multiple bottles in your house). If not, do yourself a favor and buy this insanely good smelling, highly effective leave in conditioner that detangles, smoothes and leaves hair feeling ready to take on the day. Bonus – it’s cruelty free and KIDS LOVE IT TOO!
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray – Every woman should have a bottle of DRY (as we in the biz affectionatly call it) in her arsenal. If you’ve tried anything from Orbie before, you know how amazing their signature scent is, and this product is a best seller for good reason – it doubles as a dry shampoo and texture spray, giving hair just enough oomph to disguise the fact that you no longer sleep.
Limited Edition: Birchbox x Oribe – Here is your chance to try some of Oribe’s most decadent products without spending a fortune. Making an easy gift too for someone you want to spoil.
