I know I’m a little late on announcing this, but I’m sure there’s still some people out there (just like me) who haven’t heard the exciting news—for the summer Birchbox has teamed up with Gap and opened 7 pop up shop locations across the U.S.
For a list of locations and more information on this event you can click here. If you guys have any further questions just find the closest Gap store in your area and call! That’s what I did. 🙂
Birchbox opened up a shop inside the Gap in downtown San Francisco on June 24th. I never received an email from Birchbox releasing the great news. I actually found out through another blogger about a week ago. Fortunately for me I found out the pop up shop will be open until the end of July. I live in Sacramento, so that’s why I’m talking about the SF pop up shop because it’s the closest to my area.
Bae received a job inspection for San Francisco today, so lucky me got to tag along with him. After he finished up his job inspection we headed to downtown SF. The Gap is located on 890 Market Street for those of you who may want to know. The Birchbox pop up shop will be located on the downstairs level inside the Gap.
Yes, I built my own Birchbox!!! Unfortunately even though I am a Birchbox subscriber, I still had to pay $15 to do so. It’s my understanding that in the NYC store you can use your Birchbox points as well as build your own box for only $10 if you’re already a subscriber (correct me if I’m wrong though).
It was fun to choose my OWN samples! I was surprised by how small this pop up shop was. I thought it would be a little bigger. There were also no men’s products, although they were offering men subscription boxes.
Overall it was a good experience, though. I mentioned this before in my June Birchbox review, but I want to visit the NYC store someday! I want to see everything they have to offer!
What’s in my box?!
List of what I picked out:
Hi Wildflower Hanalei Sample Perfume– smells lovely and tropical.
Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream in pomegranate– never tried it, but excited too!
Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush in the shade Los Cabos– LOVE CARGO and their blushes. This shade is a soft and subtle tangerine color.
Supergoop!® Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30– I really like this product. I just received this in my July Birchbox. You’ll see why I like this so much as soon as I finish my July review. I’m just waiting on my ipsy bag!
Macadamia Nourishing oil treatment-I have been wanting to try this forever! I’ve heard a lot of great things, so hopefully it lives up to its expectations.
I didn’t buy any full size products, although they had quite a lot there for sale. I talked myself out of it, but believe me I was tempted! I basically got two awesome Birchboxes for this month, so I’m a happy girl. 🙂 Thank you Bae.
Can I just have one of everything please! 😉
So if you guys didn’t know about this awesome Birchbox pop up shop going on now you know!!! It’s my understanding that this Gap and Birchbox team up will be going on until the end of July. So hurry up and check it out while you can!♥
