Birchbox Giveaway

Hey Ya'll!

I have recently begun receiving the "curated" monthly subscriptions from Beauty Army and Birchbox to start testing the skincare and makeup "waters". (I pretty much quit wearing makeup after I graduated high school (six years ago), because it just took too much time and effort just for attending college and Anyway! I have decided that this year, to coincide with possibly graduating in December and having to look for a "real job" to start putting more effort into my appearance, from skincare, to makeup, to eventually a wardrobe overhaul/improvements. I can't dress like a college student forever. At least, I don't think I can. If I can get a "real job" dressing like I do now (t-shirt,jeans, sperry's/flip-flops) as a teacher please let me know! I would hate to think I'm going to put all of this effort into improving my appearance for nothing.
To start learning all of my options and all about the best in skincare and makeup I (patiently) waited (and am still waiting for MyGlam and Cravebox subscriptions) for a subscription to Birchbox to open up and in the meantime came across Beauty Army. (I will soon post reviews of the products I have recieved.) Both of these subscription services for ($10 and $12 respectively) will ship you monthly 4-5 samples (some full size products) of the products deemed worthy by "curators" or hand selected by you (Beauty Army). I have now received two Beauty Army boxes and one Birchbox box. A snafu occurred with my Birchbox shipment and I received two boxes (because I contacted them thinking perhaps my box had been lost, and a result of miscommunication they sent me a replacement free of charge, only to have my box arrive a few days later...) so after talking with the friendly and super helpful Birchbox staff, I will pass on this second, wonderful box to you - my readers, as a Welcome gift of sorts!
The Birchbox that I am giving away contains the following: AHAVA Essential Day Moisturizer, Normal to Dry; Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien; Color Club Nail Lacquer in Peace Out Purple; Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint; Orofluido Beauty Elixir, and the Lifestyle Extra Tea Forte' skin-smart Teas. This is an awesome subscription, which allows you to sample amazing products before you commit to full size products which can be found on the respective shop sites (Birchbox, Beauty Army, etc....).
Please leave a comment on this post and once I figure out how to number the posts, will generate a winner via or some other non-biased approach. I will select a winner once I receive 50 comments on this post-so tell your friends to check out this site and leave me a comment. What is your favorite subscription service (curated or otherwise)?
