You’re probably already familiar with today’s desk subject: it’s our community manager, Rachel! In addition to overseeing Twitter and Facebook, she also works with our Birchblogger network and is frequently featured here on this blog. Be sure to check out this video where she talks about how much she loves the Birchbox community and her favorite products.
Zoya Blogger Collection: I’m really proud of this polish collection that we created with Zoya and some of our favorite bloggers. I love these colors for summer!
Besides Tumblr, one of our favorite places to hang out online is Twitter. While chilling in the twitterverse the other day, we came across a tweet from Amanda Lucas that caught our attention. Amanda lives in Hyde Park, New York and her sister lives in South Bend, Indiana. Each month the Lucas sisters open their Birchboxes together on Skype! This is obviously the cutest thing we’ve ever heard so we had to get in touch and learn more:
Chris Salgardo, President of Kiehl’s
Have you tried Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution? The Birchbox community is raving. Some of our members have even written to us to say that the product has helped to fade dark spots and scars they thought would be with them forever. Given all the praise, we thought we should host a live Twitter chat with Kiehl’s president, Chris Salgardo. This will be your chance to ask any and all questions about Clearly Corrective and Kiehl’s. Plus, participating will enter you to win a bottle of the solution!

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.
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.
Are you a Birchbox mom? We’d love to hear your story in the comments below!
We discovered Cheli when we came across her Flickr collection of all of her Birchboxes! We loved how pretty they looked all together so we tracked her down and got the skinny on this fab photog!

How long have you been a Birchbox subscriber? I have been subscribing to Birchbox since February of 2011. I got it as a March birthday gift to myself. It’s the birthday gift that keeps on giving.
What’s your favorite product you’ve ever received in a Birchbox? This is a hard question, especially because I am in love with all my products from January 2012. If I had to choose an all time favorite though, I would say my Pangea Organics Lip Balm. It is the most amazing lip balm ever! This balm is so soft and moisturizing. It smells delicious AND it is kind to our environment.
