What is Birchbox?

What is Birchbox?

If you guys haven’t heard of Birchbox before it is a monthly (or yearly) beauty subscription service that sends 4-5 deluxe samples based on your profile right to your door for only $10 a month (or $110 a year, you get one month free!)

As a whole, I think the company is great. Their customer service is up to par with quick responses and not to mention their points/referral program is awesome!

For every subscriber you refer, when their first box ships you receive 50 points. Also, any time you make a full-size purchase in their online store you get points! Plus, after you get your monthly box you can go to the Birchbox website and write a review. Each review earns you 10 points. What do you do with all of these points you ask? For every 100 points you acquire, you get $10 off in their online shop (you can also save up points for more $$ off your purchase: 200 points = $20 off, 300 points = $30 off, etc). Their shop has some pretty good stuff and with discounts like that you just can’t say no.

Birchbox sends out their boxes on or around the 10th of every month and the owners are great about keeping up with shipping mishaps and making things up to their subscribers when something goes wrong. (Last month some boxes were not shipped anywhere near the ship date so they gave those affected 100 points to use in the store.)

  •       $10/month or $110/year (1 month free)
  •       Online shop
  •       Points/referral program
  •             4-5 Deluxe or normal size samples. Occasionally a full size product (Stila Smudge Stick)

         -Affordable monthly price
         -Good mix of beauty products (lotions, washes, cosmetics, hair, perfume, etc)
         -Awesome points program
         -Ships in a timely manner
Cons:-A wide range of beauty products may not be everyone’s cup of tea
         -Somewhat small-ish sized samples but still good for the price you’re paying
