Birchbox

We're used to Birchbox coming straight to our doorsteps, but now it's coming to all of Chicago.

The Birchbox Road Trip is making one of its three stops around the country in Chicago this weekend, Aug. 14-16 in Pioneer Court, bringing all of the fun of the monthly beauty boxes to real life.

Birchbox and Birchbox Man will be offering full-service beauty and grooming shops and services in Pioneer Court Friday through Sunday, giving shoppers a chance to build their own Birchboxes with full-size skincare, hair and makeup products and receive discounts on subscriptions, if you're new to the service.

Giant shipping containers - fitting for the mail-order service - will be transformed into the full-service shops complete with free beauty and grooming services.

On top of the beauty services, the weekend will be filled with special events including a live DJ Saturday afternoon, free nail services and astrology readings from Enamel Diction all weekend, and a meet and greet with the cast of Fox's "Empire" Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All weekend long, any purchase includes complimentary Beavers Donuts, too.

For those not familiar - Birchbox is a monthly subscription box for men and women that sends a variety of the best of beauty and grooming products straight to your doorstep.

The roadtrip has stopped in Atlanta and will continue on to Los Angeles following Chicago, and the "winner" will have two Birchbox stores - including the first Birchbox Man store - open in their city in 2016.

Make sure to stop by this weekend to have Chicago be the winning city! Birchbox will be setting up shop in Pioneer Court, 401 N. Michigan Ave. 12-6 p.m. Friday and Sunday and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday.
