My BirchBox was delivered on October 22 and I was so happy to open it. It feels like Christmas every time I get one of my subscription boxes. This box was so-so, I guess. This is my second box from Birchbox and I do have to say that the samples are very little/small. This box did come with one full size eyeliner which was the only thing that may keep me from unsubscribing just yet. My box came with the following inside: 1. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black- Eyeliner is very easy to apply and I have no smudging at all but I do wish it was waterproof. The application can be very precise since it applies with a very sharp point applicator. It does apply very smoothly and dries shinny not matte. 2. Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray- I applied this spray to semi-wet hair after a shower and it did seem to work at first but the weather outside was wet so I still got a lot of frizz in my hair. Maybe this would work better if the weather allowed it. It didn't work for me in this situation but it does smell very good and I did notice having more volume than usual. I will try it again on a different day that is not raining out. But if you are looking for something that will give your hair volume, this product makes it happen for sure. 3. Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay- I have not tried this yet but will soon. 4. Bumble and bumble. Thickening Go Big Treatment- This application works! I only applied/sprayed a very little amount to the ends of my long curly frizzy hair after a shower and I did notice that my hair dried smoother than usual. My ends/tips felt so much softer than usual and it did have more shine. Having long curly hair it is very hard to run my hands and fingers through my hair after it dries but with this product in my hair I was able to do just that and did not make my hair frizzy and my hands were not sticky at all. I will be buying this product in its full size because I think this will be one of my daily used products now. The bottle that came in my Birchbox may have enough for about 4 applications. But I was all in with just trying it out the first time. I recommend this product for anyone with long thin curly hair. 5. Purlisse BB tinted moist cream SPF 30- This is an age defying beauty balm that is to brighten and protect your skin. This formula is made with chamomile, Artemisia, and an Asian herb extract complex. I have not tried this yet but will soon although the sample is very small and I'm not sure that I will see any results with the amount of product in the sample.

Got this for over a year, it had a great curation and their points system was out of this world! Then I started getting duplicate items, some sample were empty, and the brands got cheaper. The size got smaller and smaller too. The last straw was when they ditched the points program and sent me a lip liner from lord an berry, but it was the size of half my pinky. Then I got the Jane Erendale lipstick, but it had enough lipstick for an ant. I cancelled. Then after I cancelled my year sub, 2 months later they charged me again! It took several emails and over a week to get my money back. Seriously their customer service used to be great, not sure what happened. I won't be signing up again.

Absolutely 100% horrible. I get several sub boxes - Ipsy (2 yrs), BoxyCharm (3 mnths), SoSusan (1 mnth) and Birchbox is the worst one. I did the personalized profile noting that I had absolutely had no interest in haircare or skincare products so when I was able to see what I would be getting and to find out every single item besides the one that I choose was going to be either haircare or skincare it really upset me greatly. I did email them and was able to cancel as well as they did refund me for the remaining 5 months (I had signed up for the 6 month plan.) That was the only positive thing, I got some of my monies back. So if you like haircare and skincare products then this is the sub for you but if not then I can tell you BoxyCharm, Ipsy, and SoSusan rock.

I used to Love Birchbox! They had this awesome points program that was fantastic! I could save my points up and buy all sorts of great beauty items, and I was able to test out all sorts of great items. Then they went and change the whole program, no more points, crappy little samples. Pushed their store more than their subs and their customer service went way down. SO sad really

I purchased the yearly package and regret it because I cannot cancel. The products are not curated and lean heavily toward haircare, which is frustrating because I have a very short pixie cut and cannot use those products. As for the other products, I have received mascara in 4 out of 7 boxes and only 4 other make up samples out of 7 boxes. I hate it, and this is after reviewing the boxes every month to "help personalize" the products.

The samples are small, and are often geared more toward hair-care than I'd like, but as time goes on, I find that it gets more curated. And as I accumulate more things, I'm actually happy for the smaller sizes because it allows me to try and use everything up.

I use to have ipsy and always wanted to try Birchbox too, so I finally tried it. I liked it. Birchbox is basically the same as ipsy minus the makeup bag. I did cancel my Birchbox right away but I did like it and I actually like both companies. I'm assuming all of the makeup/beauty companies out there are going to be the same if not very similar but I think I want to try Sephora next. LOL :)

I canceled this subscription box after receiving it for 6 months--the samples were just too small and boring..

I subscribed to Birchbox about two months ago and so far, I'm not impressed. Many of the samples are just little foil packets (unlike another popular box that sends deluxe samples). I liked no more than two items out of each box. They need to revise their preferences questionnaire, and allow subscribers greater leeway in specifying what types of items they like and what types they prefer not to receive. I'll probably end up canceling this and subscribing to another brand.

I have tried birch box several times, and I wasn't happy with it. The last time I tried it I got the two box ordeal to see if i could make out any better than I have been. The only thing that I got that was worth it was the Davines shampoo, but then I got basically two small squirts of conditioner and one use of the leave in conditioner. I compared both boxes. What's worse is one box was way better than the other one. The second box was simply SAMPLE packs. I'm not happy with birch box. But that is just my opinion.
