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.

I have tried Birchbox several different times now..and become bored with their small and the same samples over and over and end up canceling bc i like Ipsy so much better. But i fell for the buy 1..get 2 boxes in December. I was TOTALLY EXCITED to get 2 boxes for price of 1..and when it came..again..stpked tp open them both to see what had been chosen for me..and SADLY..THEY DID AN AWFUL JOB..AS BOTH BOXES HAD THE SAME EXACT PRODUCTS. Same shampoo..with packets of conditioner..and hair serum. Both had a mascara, both had lip paints..(different works..other is too bright), 1 had a eyelash curler..1 had a super small highlighter..a brush wont even fit..its so small. Just had HOPED..BOTH BOXES WOULD BE DIFFERENT. THAT WAS THE WHOLE PURPOSE..NOT TO GET 2 BOXES WITH SAME EXACT PRODUCTS. SO MY EXCITEMENT TURNED TO A SAD FACE..AND DECIDED TO GIVE BIRCHBOX 2 MORE MONTHS. My girlfriend gets this box..and pucks out her products..and luvs it. I had problems pucking out my just PRAYING they send good and bigger than one time use samples. Have my eyes on So Susan, Glossybox and Boxycharm. I dont usually spent over $15 for a box..but to get Bigger and Better Products..i guess you have to pay more to get Better things!! Just another HUGE BIRCHBOX DISAPPOINTMENT!! Praying my both this month makes up for last months HUGE THUMBS DOWN!!

Like many other reviewers, I prefer ipsy. I feel like Birchbox does not have as good of curation, and there are constant repeats of samples. I do think that birchbox seems to lean more towards skincare samples than ipsy though. Personally, I also prefer ipsy's customer service as well.

I like this more than Ipsy because they only send like sample size which I’m not a very big fan of

I subscribed to Birchbox after being an Ipsy member for awhile. I kept reading great reviews so decided to give it a try. I am very disappointed in the boxes I have received so far and will probably cancel soon. They seem thrown together, messy and unorganized. Getting "packet" samples is not something I was expecting, and am becoming very discouraged as I keep receiving more and more of them, rather than actual small sample bottles, etc . From all the wonderful reviews I have read, I was hoping for much better quality samples. Also, do they really even go by your "beauty profile?" I am not sure they do. The packets and products I have received so far are way off to my profile choices.. I feel as though I am getting "bottom-of-the-barrel, toss anything in" type items. Sorry Birchbox, if my next box arrives like the last few have, I will be finding another subscription... For now, I look forward to my Ipsy and Sephora. Hopefully they step up their game soon :/

I received this subscription for my birthday about 2 years ago. I initially thought it was going to be mostly makeup and was very disappointed to find out it was mostly skincare and haircare. I went with ipsy upon finishing the 12 months and haven't looked back. If you like a lot of skin/hair products this is what you want. If you want makeup, then ipsy. if you want full size makeup with like 1 skin/hair/nail product a month then definitely boxycharm. On the upside about 3/4s of the boxes I got were super cute and pretty sturdy. Still use them today.

Great box for beginners -- I have subscribed to Birchbox on and off for a few years. This is definitely a nice box, and I've found some of my favorite products through this box, but I may unsubscribe to this one again. Unless you get the curated box, you often get repeat products. Also, some of the samples are so small that they are nearly useless, running out after just a couple uses. If you're looking for a lot of return for your money, this is not the box for you, because the total retail value of this box is fairly low most months (like in the $20 range). But honestly, if money were no object, I would consider keeping this box. I'll probably cancel it because I get too many boxes now.

I subscribed to this box back in 2012 and loved it! It was fun trying out new skincare items, etc. I ended up cancelling due to a move and recently resubscribed. My first box contained 3 items I had already received years ago. It doesn't seem like they do much updating. I waited out for a second month and again wasn't impressed. I understand it's only ten bucks a month, but ipsy seems to have nicer items for the same price.

Birchbox really isn't worth it. Their algorithm doesn't work as well as ipsy. I keep getting items that I specify that I don't want and that don't fit my beauty profile. I've also received several broken samples. I gave Birchbox four months and then I canceled. Not worth it.
