April boxes are just around the corner and we’re extra excited for this month since we’ve partnered with Women’s Health. But while we wait for the newest batch of boxes to arrive, we’ve been scouring YouTube to find your Birchbox unboxing videos! Here are a few of our favorites from this month of madness:
This past September, we were thrilled to partner with Madewell on a special offer. The collab was such a hit that we’ve teamed up with the superstylish brand yet again this month. If you’re a subscriber, you’ll find an exclusive Madewell-print nail file in your March box. But even if you’re not a subscriber, you can still partake in all the Madewell fun. This upcoming week, everyone on our mailing list (subscribers and non-subscribers alike) will be getting an email with a unique promo code for $25 off a purchase of $75+ on madewell.com.
Wow. Color us inspired. On Tuesday we launched our Twitter Upgrades Sweepstakes, asking you to tweet us and tell us how you’re stepping up your beauty routine this month. We got tons of thoughtful entries. Some of our favorites:
@nessajosephine: @birchbox For starters, I got straight-across bangs. I’m also experimenting with colored mascara on my bottom lashes! :) #upgrades
@llglossy: @birchbox Now that spring is (finally) within reach, I’m going to rock a bold lip and let that lead the way. Coral, here I come! #upgrades
@audreycupps: @birchbox I’m upgrading my beauty storage! Just bought a cute tumblr to keep my brushes neat & nearby http:yfrog.com/hsm7xx0j #upgrades
@samanthaabot: @birchbox This month’s Brow Brush (& brow video!) inspired me to upgrade my brow regimen. Anastasia Brow Wiz & Gel upped my game! #upgrades
@juliabainbridge: @birchbox Fancy shampoo (Oribe is a fave). Sure, it costs more but it goes on my color-treated locks every day. #upgrades
@jessycat: @birchbox My beauty #upgrade is to stop relying on products to make me feel beautiful. I need to believe it, then use them to enhance it :)
There are many more where that came from - to take a peek, simply search the the hashtag #upgrades in Twitter! And now, for our winner: We randomly selected @tiramisu8, who tweeted, "@birchbox No more beauty rut! This month I’m going to treat myself to professional shampoos & conditioners because my hair is worth it #upgrades."
This month’s Birchbox was all about upgrades. We picked out products that would inspire our members to take their regular routine to the next level, from a fancy schmancy Italian toothpaste to an organic lip balm loaded with essential oils. Who says basics have to be boring?
We also wanted to hear from you! We sent out cards in each of your boxes (see the above pic to help jog your memory) asking you to tweet or Facebook us with what you’re going to do this month to upgrade your routine. The pledges can be as simple as a trying a new lip color or as big as chopping your mane for a whole new hairstyle.
So let’s hear it: What is your beauty upgrade?
Tweet us with the hashtag #upgrades and you could win! We’re giving away $150 of products, including our favorite new chubby eye pencil, the greatest face masks, and a luscious body butter, to whoever has the best answer. Let the tweet-off begin!
