Last week, we got together with Birchbox skincare favorite Caudalie to celebrate the launch of their new tinted body lotion Divine Legs. We invited our New York subscribers to attend this getaway-inspired event at Caudalie’s boutique in the West Village for a night of cocktails, photo booth fun, and a meet-and-greet with one of the founders, Bertrand Thomas. Find out more about the event, and this innovative product, after the jump!
Last night, I ventured downtown with a couple other Birchbox staffers to attend the launch party for Miss Jessie’s new CurlBar here in New York. From soft waves to tightly wound spirals, Miss Jessie’s has a product for every curly haired gal. I have long, loose waves and yesterday I happily discovered Miss Jessie’s Original Quick Curls. Ops team member Noha, who has gorgeous tight ringlets, fell in love with Miss Jessie’s® Original Curly Meringue and says its the only product she’s ever been able to use alone without mousse.
A few weeks ago, we told you about Dermalogica’s work with joinFITE, an organization that supports women entrepreneurs around the world through microloans. There are two ways that Birchboxers can get involved—the first is by contributing a microloan here, and the second is by purchasing Dermalogica products and redeeming the special joinFITE code on the packaging via joinfite.org/birchbox/. We’re happy to let you know that so far, over 600 Birchbox members have used codes, helping fund loans for 24 women entrepreneurs!
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, we’re also inviting all our Los Angeles-area members to an event with Dermalogica on March 1st! See all the details below— we hope to see you there!
We may be a New York-based company, but we have members in all 50 states. Last week we got to meet some of our amazing California Birchbox-ers at our Birchbox + Smashbox party in Los Angeles. Smashbox generously loaned us their Culver City studio and 12 pro artists for a night of makeup, cocktails, and fun. In addition to makeovers, celebrity photographer Steven Khan and his team heroically snapped portraits of all the attendees with their glam new looks. And, of course, everyone left with a fuchsia goody bag. Here are some of our favorite pics from the event. All photos by Deano Mueller.
Haven’t you heard? Gift boxes are the new gift bag.
Don’t you just want to scoop up all these yummy palettes?
This Friday, in honor of Fashion’s Night Out, we’ll be hosting a fun happy hour in Bobo's garden. Guys, girls, moms, co-workers - all welcome! You don't even have to love beauty :)
