As you’re probably aware, the March 2014 Birchbox (UK) has been given a makeover by Lulu Guinness. The British handbag designer has joined forces with my favourite beauty subscription service, redesigning the packaging and personally selecting one of her favourite products for the edit. It’s a really cute idea, and on top of the selection of travel-sized samples there are a few extra goodies, like Lulu’s Life Lessons and a stick of rock.
I’ll be honest and admit I was expecting the entire box to be Lulu’s edit, so was disappointed to discover she’d only chosen one of the six products (well, two if you count the candy). However, the March selection features a nice mix of samples, and it’s great to see fashion and beauty brands collaborating in unexpected ways. I wonder who will be the next designer to team up with Birchbox…
