If you’re a lady, or maybe a fella, who really enjoys trying new beauty products but doesn’t love the time or financial commitment involved, check out Birchbox.

For $10 a month, Birchbox will send you a box of beauty samples to enjoy. The monthly subscription plan features makeup, hair products and more, from known brands.

Founded just three years ago, Birchbox has rapidly gained interest  – especially through social media outlets. There is a wait to sign up. You can submit your email address at and later, after claiming your subscription, fill out a beauty profile so that the products you receive are tailored to your needs.

Birchbox’s website notes the samples sent are products that have been tried and tested by the company’s beauty team, “We source our samples from both well-known brands and emerging gems. The women’s subscription includes everything from skincare to makeup, as well as fun non-beauty extras. The men’s subscription delivers top-tier grooming products in addition to lifestyle accessories ranging from hip socks to tech accessories.”

If you find products you like, they can be purchased in the Birchbox Women’s Shop and Men’s Shop.

Headquartered in New York City, Birchbox launched in September 2010. The company launched a men’s products option in April 2012.

Birchbox also offers a YouTube channel with information about the company and tutorials on hair, makeup and more.
