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:
Best seller #1: Jouer Lip Enhancer
Whenever a big season change comes around, we know it’s time for us to overhaul our daily regimens. Which is why we asked some of beauty’s best to share their tips on how we should shake things up with our regularly scheduled beauty lineup. From how to protect your skin to the trick for scoring the longest lashes ever, here’s the insider advice that you won’t want to miss:
1. Try Going Natural
This fall at New York Fashion Week, we asked Juice Beauty founder Karen Behnke to tell us her big predictions for the coming year: “Gentle fruit-based, gluten-free beauty products are going to be a huge trend in 2014.” Heed this savvy founder’s advice and test drive all-natural alternatives like Juice Beauty’s recently launched collection of organic cosmetics. The line uses ingredients like organic açai, goji berries, blueberries, pomegranate, and cranberries to create gorgeous, vivid colors. Our current fave is the Glowing Cheek Color, which eschews parabens, petroleum, and pesticides and has a lovely dewy finish.
