Birchbox is worth it if you're interested in hair products or perfume, but nothing else. It probably has to do with the fact that they get their deluxe samples for free and companies don't make many deluxe samples of makeup. I said in my quiz that I was not interested in haircare or suncare and reviewed every product and told them I did not feel the products fit me, but month after month, I received hair products and sunscreen. The sample sizes were pretty good, so if you're interested in those it's probably worth the money. My other big complaint is that unlike boxycharm and some other boxes, you don't get any rewards for staying subscribed. You get points for the first 5 reviews and then after that, you're going to have to purchase the full price items to get more.

BB was one of my first sub boxes and I've been subbing on and off with them for about 3 - 4 years now. The only reason I subscribe anymore is when they have a free gift with your subscription. I found myself being excited about the box each month but wouldn't use half the items, and even only a few months into the sub I was getting exact item repeats: they really don't curate boxes at all even if you fill out the quiz and always review your products (I mean, I said I don't want hair products and in a box I got both a product for straight hair and one for curly??). Skin products were never the right color. I (and my friends who have subbed) have had glass items come shattered, perfume all over, and shadows smashed. Customer service replaces them sometimes but usually you're sol. Every so often you'll get a box with a travel size or full size if you're lucky. But for $10, Ipsy is a better value. ------- They used to give points for subbers reviewing their products and points could be spent in the store, but they have since taken that away and I know many people who unsubscribed because of it, or even subscribed initially just for the points to spend. They're doing more to hurt their subscribers than help.

Birchbox was my first and favorite subscription box. I was immediately obsessed and in love. There were so many different product types and brands. There was always something new for me to try. I have really sensitive skin so buying a beauty item without testing it first is really hard for me. They sent out extra gifts in your holiday box. How else would I have known how delicious chocolate dipped pretzels were? The points system was the best around. We received $5 in points for reviewing our box every month. The points really made it worth it. I was so excited the first time I saved up enough points to get something really awesome! And we can't forget about Birchbox plus! Each month you could add an item ( or items) onto your box at a discounted price and it shipped free with your box. Birchbox plus just might have been my favorite part of the whole thing. It wasn't just full size beauty items, it was really cool, new items. Like a zip up beach blanket, a chalk board candle, a Baggu Duck bag, a Rosanna ceramic travel mug, a tea set... I could keep going all day. Birchbox Plus was amazing. It wasn't just another beauty box, it was an experience. At some point everything started to change. They stopped the points system. I almost cancelled when they did but I decided to hang on since I loved getting the opportunity to try new beauty items! Birchbox Plus just disappeared. You can still add on certain items with your box but it's not cool items, it's just more of the same old beauty items you have already gotten in your box five times. Which brings me to my biggest complaint. The repeats! There are enough beauty brands and products in the world that I shouldn't be getting repeated items over and over again! It happens so often I don't even let it bother me anymore. I still subscribe to Birchbox. As I said before, I love getting to try new beauty items each month. Birchbox has helped me find a skincare routine that has really improved my skin. I used to recommend Birchbox to everyone I knew but they have really disappointed me. I wish they were as good as they were in the beginning but they're just not.
