Birchbox Vs. Ipsy February 2015

Birchbox is a monthly subscription box featuring beauty and lifestyle samples. It is $10 a month and you receive 4-6 samples, deluxe sames, and sometimes full size products. Their point system is really good, and you can end up getting a lot of full size products for free. You can join here, so we both get points:
