Birchbox is one of the original beauty sample subscription boxes. Each box costs $15 a month, or you can save more with longer subscriptions. Boxes typically include a variety of samples, deluxe size samples, and the occasional full size product curated around your beauty profile.

Very fun box if you like sample size products. I got one each for my teenage daughters and they use all products and love unboxing. It’s a good value and a good starter box.

My first box, but not my favorite. I have not found the curation to match my profile; I have changed my age down by 10-years in order to not get super-greasy moisturizers, for example. I have gotten a bunch of repeats and often don't want any of the choices available but receive most of them anyway. I also have newer boxes that provide me with more products than I can use, and I have a set of items I prefer, so I don't really need samples anymore. It was a good idea for a while.

I"m not really pleased with the monthly offerings that i am receiving. I have signed up for an annual subscription last year in order to get a free gift, and now i see that i must actually keep the subscription for an entire year. I haven't been enjoying the monthly boxes, and i have found that the customization option is pretty worthless, because i haven't been able to customize ever, since by the time i log in, they are all gone, even if it's same day. I'm pretty disappointed about that. I guess it would have been better if they had made me pay up front, and i wouldn't have felt like i'm stuck paying for something i don't want after the fact. I need to stop falling into the trap of getting a free gift!

    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.
