Birchbox was my very first subscription box (I've been a member for two years now). At first I thought it was the best thing ever, but now that I've tried other subscription boxes, I've realized that Birchbox trails behind some of its competitors (namely Ipsy, if we're going by price points). Here are my main issues with Birchbox: 1) The products are a mixed bag. For every Oribe, Benefit, Coola, or Bliss product, you also get a whole slew of cheap off brands (including Birchbox's own in-house brands) that I couldn't care less about. 2) While the hair and (occasional) makeup samples are usually generous (including full sized lipsticks), the skincare samples are typically teeny tiny. 3) Repeats are frequent, and I find that I get the same types of samples over and over again- usually consisting of shampoo/conditioner, dry shampoo, hair serum/oil, itty bitty perfume, and hand cream. Getting makeup is very rare, and it usually doesn't flatter my skin/hair at all. Which brings me to 4) The customization is lacking. Ipsy has a great style quiz, which ensures I almost always get products I'll like. Birchbox's customization obviously doesn't work well because even after two years, I still get stuff I don't want, or in colors that look bad on me. I'm still going to continue my subscription with Birchbox, since their strength lies in their great hair products (Hello, Oribe!). But I definitely can say it's not my favorite box at all!

I only subscribed to Birchbox for two months before I cancelled. I really like IPSY so I decided to try another box along those lines but Birchbox was a huge disappointment. They send you the TEENIEST samples (some are only for one or two uses) and they didn't really seem to cater to my survey answers at all. The box they send it in is cuter than the products.

It's a waste of money unless you hoard beauty products you'll never use and/or work in the industry and honestly have a need for completely random stuff. I kept this sub up for probably 9 months and it was 99% trash. Very rarely received anything worthwhile.
