Travel Savvy Thanks to Birchbox + Vichy

The special Birchbox Vichy box arrived just in time for a series of business trips. These baby-sized samples are 3-1-1 friendly, and also, perfect for skin. Win-win. As if we needed another reason to love Birchbox, they go ahead and create a special box with Vichy, in addition to the monthly subscription, and offer it to a segment of subscribers based on their beauty profiles. Vichy has been around since the 1930s, named after a small town in France known for its antioxidant-rich mineral waters.

I tested several of these products while traveling for work, and was really impressed! While the moisturizer samples added weight to my carry on bag due to the glass pacakging (very chic), it was worth it. The Aqualia Thermal Cream Fortifying & Soothing 24-Hour Hydrating Care moisturizer is so soothing. After a few hours on a plane, four hours of sleep at the hotel and a nearly 18-hour day that ended with a return flight back to Chicago, my skin stayed hydrated. I didn’t even get a travel blemish (the worst).   Also, Vichy’s Purete Thermale 3-in-1 step Cleanser is made for traveling, or those looking to save some time. It’s a cleansing milk, toning lotion and makeup remover all at the same time. Effective, too!

I’m on another trip this weekend, and these Vichy samples are tucked into to clear, TSA-approved ziploc. I’ll hopefully be avoiding the travel blemishes on this trip, too. Let us know if you were one of the subscribers that recieved the box. We’d be interested to know your thoughts.

  1. I love these samples and the packaging too!! I can’t wait to take them to France with me in a few weeks. The Lotions are great, very hydrating and love the face wash.

  2. I got one of these too and I really love all the products in there. I wish the day cream had SPF but other than that, they’re lovely. I really like the way they smell. The night cream is so rich that it got rid of all my dry flaky patches in two days (and I live on a mountaintop in the middle of the desert at 7,000 ft above sea level, so it’s DRY here). Even the cleansing milk is moisturizing. Such a nice extra!

  3. I received the box a week or two ago- such a nice little “extra” from Birchbox. I’ve only subscribed to Birchbox for a couple months, so was really tickled about this 🙂 Haven’t had a chance to try the products yet. I tend to break out really easy from products, so try and do one at a time for a few days to give everything a fair chance- this leaves me with a bit of a waiting line of goodies (total beauty junkie). Curious to hear how you do with the 3-in-1.
