About Birch Box Subscription
Each month we’ll send you 5 deluxe sample and travel size beauty products (including the occasional full-size!) You can expect a mix of make-up, skincare, body, and haircare to upgrade your beauty routine.
I’ve subscribed to Birchbox in late August and I’ve been loving every box since then. I’ve been using all the products I receive and I’m even considering to purchase some of them by myself. January’s box was a bomb! Although I see loads of people complain about Birchbox on their Facebook page I’ve personally never had any problems with them.

birch box is kind of a hit and miss if i'm being honest. I have been lucky enough to not have ever received an item twice unlike some people, but the items themselves are sometimes lacking. The shipping is atrocious some times, at least three times i've had to wait over a month for my box which was bad because it was no surprise as everyone was on social media showing what they had gotten.
its a no from me to be honest.

As my title would suggest, this is a perfect box! But only sometimes! I have only received 4 boxes (So 4 months worth) and while I have been pleasantly surprised by the themes and the contents, those being young, fresh and new I also have to say sometimes you only receive sample sizes. This is not uncommon but also not a downside to birchbox as they do say on the website that sample sizes are one of the key points of the business plus the sample sizes are larger than you would normally find. Full size products are common also and I find I do receive more popular products, plus at Christmas they gave you chocolates!!!
I think this is definitely a younger persons subscriptions however, you can tailor the box to your own age, gender, skin, hair etc so it may work for anyone based on their picks.

I tried this for a few months before switching to glossy box. I found that the products were nearly all tiny samples and it wasn’t that interesting. I did like the nice drawer type box though! Not worth the money for me.

Absolutely loved my first birchbox. I really like that I'm able to chose a full size product to get in every box. All of the products that I received I enjoyed. I love that there are high end brands in there too such as benefit and smashbox. Definitely going to buy again.

Some months Birchbox has provided amazing products that I have actually gone on to purchase, other times it’s likw they’ve thrown together a box without looking at your beauty profile and hopes for the best. Overall you can find some great products some months but don’t expect it to be like that every month.

The products BirchBox provides are really varied and can be hit or miss. Sometimes the products are fantastic but others it’s like they’ve shoved a bunch of products into a box, ignored your beauty profile and just hopes for the best.
On a positive note, I’ve found some brilliant things from them! The activated charcoal deodorant is brilliant and I actually purchased this after the sample!
It seems a little disappointing some months, but they do great offers (sometimes 2 boxes for the price of 1) and to be honest, I really think this can be good for an introduction to beauty boxes.

This is like a little all year round go me treat and I love the mystery of what I will find each month. As I've had it a year now I do get to choose at least one item a month and the box design. The boxes are always nicely designed and are grea for storing jewellery and hair bobbles. The items inside can be hit and miss though. A mix of makeup, hair and beauty products but generally a good mix of brands too. I love my spectrum brushes I've received and benefit and Seche vita nail top coat etc it's a fairly good value surprise but am tempted to try somethings else as need more better brands

I've had this on subscription for over a year now and overall I'm pretty pleased with them. The boxes are drawers and cite to reuse. You get 5 procure and often they are a good mix of skincare, makeup and haircare. If you pay for the year up front you get a good discount so its worth doing you also get VIP previews and discounts after 6months. I haven't had any repeat products so far but there have been some bits there I haven't used at all but you'd get that with any subscription. You can get some good brands including Bobbi Brown, Spectrum and Benefit. Overall it is good value.

✨I have a bit of love and hate with the Birchbox subscription. Some months the product choice contained is amazing - December’s was out of this world with products from Spectrum and Benefit. However, the products in other months are dreadful - I’m all for cult beauty products but they have to be decent and a lot of the time they are not. I do like it when you have subscribed for 6+months you become a Birchbox VIP and get 10% of all items in the store and a choice of 2 products for next months box. The £13 a month isn’t bad, but when I was giving more products away it wasn’t worth it for me.

Tried out the Birchbox in Feb and March honestly to get the new benefit mascara and a few other goodies. If you’re not picky and like a selection it is good however I found it a bit hitty missy so have now moved onto a subscription box where I choose my products. However customer service packaging and the online shop etc is brilliant

I've been a subscriber to Birchbox since October 2016. The box designs are always really well thought out and designed well, and it's great that they are draw shaped as it makes them very reusable.
The products in the boxes are hit and miss each month - sometimes you can have the best box going, and others it's barely worth getting excited over, but overall i'd recommend Birchbox as a good subscription box. At £10 (+P&P) it's pretty good value, and you regularly get high end products in there too. There can be a tendency though for repeat products - so look out for that.
