The Product Worth Stealing From a Birchbox Man: Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Wash

                                  image

We all suspect (or are certain) that our guy friends, little brothers, and significant others dip into our anti-aging creams and use every opportunity to test out our luxe shampoos. But we rarely take beauty cues or products from the boys—with a few key exceptions, namely Molton Brown’s Re-charge Black Pepper Bodywash.

Originally designed for men, this shower essential quickly gained a cult following among savvy ladies thanks to its energizing blend of spices and unique formula. Our very own Mollie Chen swears by the Black Pepper Bodywash—it’s been her favorite for years.

Just Because…We Love Quince & Apple Preserves

A mea culpa is in order. Last month, we launched our Just Because Box, a limited edition box filled with beauty and lifestyle treats, and we’ve nearly sold out. Despite all the amazing feedback we’ve been getting there’s one teeny problem: we omitted the full-size buying info for one of our star items, Quince & Apple’s Pear with Honey and Ginger Preserves!

Quince & Apple’s artisanal fruit preserves, which are made in small batches by a husband-and-wife duo in Wisconsin, have been one of the box’s biggest hits. We’re not surprised—we discovered the line at Lucy’s Whey, our favorite Manhattan cheese shop, and loved their sophisticated take on familiar flavors: Figs and Black Tea is rich and smoky, while the Pear with Honey and Ginger is sweet and bright. Plus their recipe ideas make us think way beyond toast—Brie and Gingered Pear Tart, anyone? Suffice it to say, we don’t blame you and all our Just Because customers for wondering where you can get more Quince & Apple goodness. We don’t carry them, but you can head to their fully stocked online shop and pick them up—they ship everywhere! 

—Mollie

Hint: Their gift box is the perfect thing to take as a housewarming or hostess gift—and at $30 it’s an excellent deal.

You Don’t Need a Reason…Give a Gift Just Because

When was the last time you sent your mom something special out of the blue? Or the last time you gave your sister a little giftie because you’re proud of her? We get so wrapped up in birthdays, graduations, and holidays that sometimes we forget to tell the people in our lives how much we appreciate them at other times of the year. Plus, gift giving is daunting enough when there is an explicit occasion.

Since we here at Birchbox are all warm and fuzzy inside, we wanted to make it a little easier for everyone to spread the love—that’s why we created our limited-edition Just Because box. From Jouer eyeshadow and Lipstick Queen lip gloss to small-batch fruit preserves and Nest coasters handmade by female artisans in India, all the items in this box are incredibly delightful. Even if you just get one for yourself (you deserve treats, too!) it comes with a special letterpress card so you can send someone you care about a little note. Click here to purchase—it’s especially good for the Birchbox addict in your life who hates waiting a full month to get his/her special pink delivery!
