Every time i get notice that its time to pick ny monthly box I go into web page and ALL box options are SOLD OUT! Guess my time zone puts me at a disadvantage. Anyway, I give them a zero for not making options available to ALL members. I won't renew my subscription. ☹

Like many others, Birchbox is my original sub box. I am an ACE and am locked into the 10.00 a month price. I do feel that I get good value for my money, especially with the new curated box options and six samples. Yes, a lot of the products are repeats and brands that have been around forever. I’m not offended by that because, for the most part, I love them. They seem to do a better job curating my profile preferences than another sub of mine that has sent me countless black eyeliners. Birchbox customer service has gone from stellar to sluggish in recent months, but they always do respond....eventually, and have been very generous with compensation for lost/damaged items. I can’t think of a negative experience in three years of subscribing.

I wish there was an option for zero on ease of canceling! I signed up for six months and kept checking as the months rolled by to see how I could cancel. I figured once the six months was up I could contact customer service. Well, I did that, and was told I had been sent an email informing me I was automatically being re-enrolled in another six month term of service! I checked spam and trash and everywhere I could think of, the email didn't exist. I went back and forth with customer service for a while and they finally let me cancel that second six month commitment. Customer service was great in the end, but very hard to get ahold of and the first two people I interacted with were very dismissive and condescending. They also send very small samples and I got two to three haircare items every single month despite having hair marked as something I don't want at all, and reaching out to customer service early in my subscription and having them assume me they would put a note on my account to avoid hair products (I'm allergic to almost every shampoo and conditioner on the market.) About two thirds of the samples I got went immediately into a give away box, so I guess I really can't speak to the quality of products! I barely got to try any of them.

    What is Birchbox & how does it work?

  • Birchbox ($15 per month) is a well-known beauty subscription box that sends you a mix of 5-6 sample-sized items each month. Items can include makeup, skincare, hair products, beauty tools—it’s all based on your preferences.

    When you sign up, you’ll fill out a profile, which Birchbox will use to pick products that match your interests. Each month, you’ll get to decide between a box of personalized samples (one of which YOU get to choose) or a “curated” box of samples determined by Birchbox. What’s inside the personalized box is a surprise (apart from the one sample you get to pick for yourself), but you’ll be able to see everything inside the curated box up front.

    Birchbox features new beauty brands as well as a slew of familiar names, including MAC, Benefit, Sunday Riley, Bobbi Brown, Oribe, Kiehl’s, Lipstick Queen, Living Proof, & more.

    Birchbox members can shop select full-size products as add-ons, which ship free AND earn you Loyalty Points. (You can also earn Loyalty Points by referring friends or purchasing gift subscriptions. Loyalty points can be redeemed on full-size items in the Birchbox shop.)

    How much does Birchbox cost? Do you have a Birchbox promo code?

  • Birchbox costs $15 per month. But you can save by paying up front for a longer subscription:

    - 6 month subscription = $84, or $14 per monthly box
    - 12 month subscription = $156, or $13 per monthly box

    Birchbox often has free gift offers for new members, plus store discounts, coupons, and promotions throughout the year. We’ve got the latest Birchbox promo codes here!

And subscribers can find full-size versions of the men’s products they love in the Birchbox Grooming shop.
