According to respondents in Allure's survey, George Clooney and Meryl Streep are the celebrities who have aged the best.
These days it seems like everyone is paying close attention to the aging process and how to combat it. In 2011 alone, Americans spent $2.3 billion on anti-aging skincare products and almost $10 billion on cosmetic procedures. Now taking a closer look at the growing trend, Allure has conducted their first ever survey on aging which has revealed some interesting, though not surprising, results.
Hooray, It’s the Birchbox Beauty Pulse Holiday 2012 Survey!
This past summer, we surveyed our members on anything and everything beauty-related, from waxing to neon nails, and then transformed the raw data into our very first Birchbox Pulse Survey infographic. The results were such a hit, we decided to do a survey each quarter, and we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our latest: the Holiday 2012 Edition.
We won’t spoil the fun by spilling too much here, but we can’t resist sharing a few nuggets that we found particularly interesting:
- The average holiday budget among our members is $556.
- Respondents want one out of every four holiday gifts to be beauty-related.
- 62 percent of people wear more makeup during the holidays.
There are also sections on holiday do’s and don’ts, the season’s hottest lip color, and what beauty gifts people really want to receive (if you haven’t finished your holiday shopping yet, we suggest you pay close attention to this part).
A big shout-out goes out to Rebecca Sloat on our creative team, who spent tireless hours making this infographic so gloriously gorgeous. We’d love for all of you to help us get the word out by sharing our festive findings via your social channels. Also, we want to hear your thoughts! Let us know in the comments below what you think of these results, as well as what kind of surveys you’d like to see from us in the future.

Earlier this month, we revealed the results of Beauty Pulse Survey, including the trend that respondents were most excited about (beachy waves, duh). But what about the meh factor? Respondents said that they are totally over ombre highlights and nail art—the trends tied, each with 22 percent of the vote. That said, the Birchbox community is generally trend-loving, with 36 percent of respondents still psyched about all the trends we listed. If you’re ready for something new, we have suggestions for you.
We are obsessed with beachy waves and unsurprisingly, it turns out that you are too. Over 10K of you took the time to fill out our Beauty Pulse Survey, and when asked which celeb hairstyle you like the most, an overwhelming majority of you (52%) chose Blake Lively’s tousled tresses. This style easily won out over the competition, which included the Olsen twins’ boho locks and Nicole Richie’s sideswept bangs. If you’re interested in getting the surfs-up look yourself, check out our "Gossip Girl" Waves video tutorial starring the show’s lead hair stylist, Jennifer Johnson.
You might not know it, but Birchbox is full of data geeks. It was only a matter of time before we turned our numbers-loving eyes on our members. We’re excited to unveil the results of our first-ever Beauty Pulse Survey. Last month, we emailed out a survey link to randomly selected customers and email subscribers. We got over 10,000 responses—thanks to all of you who participated! We learned all about the beauty trends that you’re excited about right now, your position on neon nails at work, and even your waxing style.
Our genius creative team put together a cute infographic that you can find on our site. Feel free to share with your friends now that the cat is out of the bag. And stay tuned to the Birchbox Blog as we dive into the results later this week.
The results are in! See the results of our Beauty Pulse Survey in a way-cool infographic.
If you’ve ever flipped through a magazine or looked through snapshots of a runway show, chances are you’ve noticed the impossible standard of beauty set forth by the fashion industry. The perfect American woman, it seems, is a size 0 eighteen-year-old with legs tall enough to rival a giraffe’s. And 99 percent of the time, she also happens to be white. For those of us who deviate from the impossible norm (and that’s pretty much all of us), it’s easy to feel like we’ll never measure up. Yet a new study suggests that black women seem to be more immune than others to the images of Photoshopped perfection that surround us.
