We found Melissa when she responded to our recent Birchbox Mom’s post. She told us that she was a Birchbox mom too and that she valued Birchbox as a way for busy moms like herself to treat themselves every month. If there’s one thing we love around here, it’s moms, so we reached out to learn more about Melissa. Here’s what she had to say:

How many kids do you have?: I have three children, all boys, ages 12, 6, and 2.
How long have you been a subscriber? I have only been a subscriber since January 2012. I loved my January box and am really looking forward to my next one.
What do you like about it? My favorite thing about Birchbox is getting samples of products that I wouldn’t have tried or even known about on my own. Plus, the deluxe sizes allow you to really decide if you like something.
Have you discovered anything new? My favorite product so far has been the VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Eye Serum. It is just what I needed.
Why do you think Birchbox is good for moms? As a busy mom, it is very difficult to find the time to go to a store and look around for a new product. Most of the time I would need to bring along my very uncooperative two year old, which isn’t very conducive to browsing. Birchbox has given me the opportunity to try new things and get out of the skincare rut I have been in.
