Unboxing Day – Birchbox and Birchbox Man

In the first installment of the limited series Unboxing Day, we take a peek inside the subscription boxes from Birchbox and Birchbox Man. Birchbox curates a monthly package of new grooming, beauty and lifestyle products and sends them to your home for a nominal fee ($10/month for women, $20/month for men). The women’s box contains 4-5 samples, while the men’s box contains 3-4 samples and 1-2 full-size lifestyle products. According to the website, you can “sample top products from high-end brands, get expert advice, buy new favorites and earn points with every purchase.” Barry’s Bootcamp COO Joey Gonzalez was featured by Birchbox recently as a Birchbox Man, and you can see his videos here, including an instructional video on how to do the perfect plank (you may THINK you know…).

A few more details about the program:
You can accrue points towards purchases by doing the following:
(1) Leaving feedback on the samples you receive each month; you can get 50 points per month if you leave feedback on all 5 of your samples
(2) Referring a friend
(3) Making any full size purchases; every dollar you spend equals one point
You are able to use the points towards a purchase once you hit 100 points; 100 points = $10
