Birchbox Canada Review - March 2015 - Canadian Beauty Subscription Box

This post contains referral links.
What is it?Birchbox Canada
How Much? $10/month plus $4.95 shipping, or $159.40/year including shipping (CDN $)
What’s in it? Five personalized beauty samples, tailored to your profile.
Birchbox is the premiere beauty sampling service in the US and it's the service that launched the entire beauty box craze. Established in New York in 2010 by two friends, Birchbox now has operations in the UK, France, Spain, Belgium, and most recently, Canada!

The only crummy part about Birchbox coming to Canada is that the Canadian site is completely separate from the US site. On the plus side, we are billed in Canadian dollars and the box ships from within Canada, but the Canadian site doesn't offer all the cool perks and promos that the US site gets (Birchbox Aces, Sample Choice, Limited Edition boxes etc). The samples are different too. To get an idea of what sort of samples you might receive, scroll through the Birchbox CA shop and check out the brands.…

The box shipped from Las Vegas, Nevada. It was raining in Vancouver the day my box arrived, which explains the blurred ink on the box. I also noticed the box wasn't sealed with tape, so anyone could open the box and take a peek. It actually appears that…
