The Best $10 You'll Ever Spend: Birchbox

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

You've spent the entire holiday season buying presents for others, so why not spoil yourself a little? Sign up for Birchbox and for $10 a month you’ll receive monthly deliveries of oversized, high-end beauty samples from brands like Benefit, Oscar Blandi, and Korres.

When you join, you’ll fill out a questionnaire with your skin tone, hair type, and beauty style and Birchbox will curate your box based on your responses. Then, for the price of a latte and scone, you'll receive a bevy of products that best flatter your features.
Find something you want more of? Visit the Birchbox Shop with full-size versions of all your samples (plus other must-have items). Sign up now and get $20 off any purchase of $75 or more in the Birchbox Shop with the code BBLOVE. Use that discount to pick up a present for someone on your list, or snag something for yourself (we won't tell).
