Nerd alert: one of our favorite things to do is read the customer reviews in the Birchbox Shop. You all are an opinionated bunch—and we like it! We especially love the love letters you write to your favorite products. (Though we’re still waiting on the haikus and iambic pentameter.) In honor of our anniversary month, we’re highlighting extrasweet customer serenades to three of our top-selling products of all time:
We first encountered the Jouer Lip Enhancer back in September of 2010, the same month we launched Birchbox, and our love affair has stayed strong over the past three years. The amped-up lip balm is loaded with power moisturizers like vitamin E, jojoba oil, and shea butter, which makes is supremely good at healing parched lips and preventing dryness. In addition, the formula minimizes any fine lines and plumps your lips without any irritation. It’s no surprise that ranks as one of the top four products in the Birchbox Shop. Birchbox customer Praers says:
“Jouer Lip Enhancer saved my lips from the cold blast winter and the harsh summer. Even if I don’t have another stitch of makeup on, I have to have this either alone or over my favorite shade. My lips have never felt so loved and my husband has commented that I’ve never been more kissable. More than just a gloss, this lip enhancer truly provides an enhanced experience to battle whatever climate you may find yourself in.”
Best seller #2: Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
From formulas that stray to colors that come on too strong, we all have a tale of liquid liner heartbreak. But Eyeko’s Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is so user-friendly that even clumsy ladies (like moi) can use it. The super plush marker-style tip makes it easy to lay down a smooth line and once it’s on the long-lasting formula doesn’t budge. Reviewer flourprints backs us up:
“Oh. My. Gawd. I love love LOVE this eyeliner. It goes on so dark and so smooth and it doesn’t smudge at ALL. It didn’t irritate my eyes or leave a black line on my upper lid. I’m so pleased with this. Eyeko is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands! I will definitely be buying this again!”
Best seller #3: Vasanti’s BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
Much like John Cusack’s lovable character Lloyd Dobler in the 80’s classic “Say Anything,” this unassuming exfoliator beats out the fancy competition. Vasanti’s BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator doggedly buffs away surface uneveness, while nourishing papaya enzymes break down dead skin cells to brighten and soften your complexion. Vasanti fan Kristieh says,
“This stuff is bomb-diggity! It makes my face feel like I’ve just had a professional microdermabrasion. I love how my skin feels soft—not oily—after I use this scrub!
