Announcing: The Birchbox Limited Edition We Heart This Box!
Who says Valentine’s Day has to be romantic? This year, we’re feeling warm and gushy about all of our favorite things, starting with you—our customers. We created our latest limited edition box, the We Heart Collection, just for you. Consider it our version of a valentine—after all, what could be more adorable than a keepsake Birchbox stamped with miniature hearts? We’ll take that over roses any day. Inside, you’ll find a selection of all-time bestsellers, top-rated customer favorites, and editor picks.
Supplies are limited so don’t dilly-dally. Happy Valentine’s Day!
One of my biggest gripes during the winter is, without a doubt, terribly chapped lips. Even if I do every at-home remedy—use a sugar scrub, exfoliate with a toothbrush—I can’t seem to keep my lips soft, supple, and generally not painfully cracked. It’s something that I’ve been struggling with for as long as I can remember—which is why I was pretty desperate to try anything that friends and colleagues claimed actually worked. (I am not ashamed to say that I have tried Waxelene, Vaseline, and all other leen-alternatives.)
Enter a product that I never would have thought would do the trick: Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips. Stay with me, because I know you just saw the word nipple and are either wholly concerned or were sold immediately (right, Moms?). But for those of you who aren’t as familiar with the concept of nipple balm, let me have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to this cult favorite product of British makeup artists. (And even better? Some of you will receive this product in your February Birchbox!)
We’re shooting our February videos today, and one of the highlights of our lineup was a cameo from the famed stylist Serge Normant. Fresh off the plane from L.A. (where he styled Julia Roberts’ hair for the Golden Globes over the weekend), Normant sat down with our co-founder Katia for a step-by-step tutorial.
