This month, Birchbox is bringing their customers more ideas for how to bring 'more good' to life, from a roundup of their favorite charitable beauty brands to easy ways to give back.
In addition, they are donating a portion of the proceeds from the Birchbox Shop to No Kid Hungry, a nationwide organization that works to end childhood hunger. LOVE THAT!
Here are the lovely samples that filled my Birchbox this month...
BeeKind - Body Lotion:
Made with honey and organic chamomile, this yummy UK face sinks in to restore skin.
Made with natural skin conditioners like honey and organic chamomile, this natural hydrator absorbs instantly without greasy residue, leaving behind a zesty lemon verbena scent. This fast-absorbing formula comes to you free of parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA, and propylene glycol, but chock full of proven hydrators like honey, organic chamomile, and Brassica plant extract. In place of petrochemicals, there’s good old-fashioned soybean and cottonseed oil for an added moisture boost.
Chella - Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil:
This fave illuminator brightens and contours - it can be applied 10 different ways! Blend onto brow bones, cheekbones, or along lip line.
This brightening formula visibly lifts and opens up the eyes when used on brow bones, water lines, or inner corners, and contours the face by drawing light to the high plains of the face (like the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, and Cupid’s bow). It also helps you create a flawless finish with precise coverage of dark spots, acne scars, and blemishes, and creates clean lines around your lips when you’re rocking a bold lip color. Available in Ivory Lace, for light skin tones, and Latte, for medium skin tones.
Joie - Folle de Joie eau de parfum:
A Birchbox customer fave, this fresh scent blends mandarin, rose, and sandalwood.
The perfume opens with a burst of freshness from an intimate blend of calming citrus and a light woodsy floral, giving away to playful hints of cognac. Its middle notes—jasmine and Damascenia rose—give the fragrance a carefree, summery vibe. Finally, warm base notes of spicy woods and rich leather add a seductive finish. Plus, the vintage-inspired glass bottle adds a chic touch to any vanity.
WEI - Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask:
A non-drying, deep-cleaning mask packed with purifying China clay.
It purges all kinds of debris from your skin—from excess oil to environmental pollutants—leaving your pores nearly invisible. We love how the single-use pods come equipped with a handy brush to help you apply the mask evenly. The formula works for all skin types, even the most sensitive.
WEI - Pomegranate Buffing Beads:
Natural scrub that uses finely ground pomegranate peels to brighten and declog skin.
Long admired for its detoxifying powers, the pomegranate is practically a sacred fruit in the East. Filled with antioxidants, the finely milled pomegranate peels in this powdery scrub brighten skin tone and encourage cell renewal. Plus, its natural antiseptic qualities help clear blocked pores. There are also gentle buffing beads to slough off dead skin: you’ll see why it’s so important to schedule in a weekly exfoliation session.

Mighty Leaf - Tea Pouches:
Handpicked blend of organic tea leaves, dried fruits, and spices in a biodegradable pouch.
All five flavors are made with natural ingredients, and packed with antioxidants, blending organic tea leaves, dried fruits, and spices in a silken biodegradable pouch. Each satchel is cleverly marked with its caffeine content and brew time, ensuring you always make the perfect cup.
