The best beauty samples ever

I tend to hoard beauty samples. I have a huge stash of Lilliputian-sized products that I've received free with purchase. The problem? The samples never seem to be suited to my skin type.

Hence the genius of the new site Birchbox.com . For a small monthly fee of $10, you get a box full o' beauty products delivered to your front door. Every. Single. Month. The packaging is divine - a hot pink box that just screams gorgeous. The samples are generously sized. And the best part - they've been handpicked for you based on questions you answer about your beauty preferences.

Love what you try? When you order full-size products, you earn loyalty points that are good toward future purchases. Plus the site provides in-depth tips, tricks and video tutorials every month.

Each box includes 4-5 high-end samples from brands like Korres, Phyto and Benefit. Last month, my pink box contained:

- Ahava Revival Bath Salts

- Cargo Lash Activator Mascara

- Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste

- Pangea Organics Lip Balm (a full size!)

- Brow brush

I'm anxiously awaiting my April shipment any day. Not knowing what wonderful surprises lurk inside is half the fun.
