Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and some tips on how to use them.


Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – .75 oz Value $6.75

I love the pattern/packaging on all Amika products! This dry shampoo goes on clear (and I like the scent) so it’s a winner.

Coola SPF 50 Sport in Fresh Mango – .5 oz Value $3.20

This was my sample pick for the month. Normally I try to pick a high-value sample item, but nothing really grabbed my attention this month. I wasn’t too excited about this sample either, but I like Coola, so I knew I’d use it. After sampling it, I’ve become a little obsessed though – the mango scent is amazing! I also really like some of Coola’s other scents (Pina Colada), so if you like those, I highly recommend the Fresh Mango!


Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow – .24 oz Value $4

I like this BB Cream – the color blended in well with my skin tone, and it gives a decent amount of coverage, with a smooth/matte finish.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask – .16 oz Value $2.50

This is a foam mask that only takes 5 minutes to work. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to sample this since I’m allergic to one of the ingredients (Red 40), but it’s such a small sample that at least it doesn’t contribute too much value to the box.


Emi Jay Hair Tie – Value $2

This item is listed on the card as a lifestyle extra. I can never have enough hair ties or lip balms, so I’m happy with the extra!

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Blue Lagoon – .8 g Value $7.30

This eyeliner goes on so smoothly, and the color is a lighter metallic blue:


This isn’t a shade I’d wear every day, but I really like it.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $26. I’m happy with the value and the sample sizes. (And no perfume samples!) The only one thing I won’t use is the Bliss Mask, and I’m ok with 5 out of 6 items working for me! What did you pick as your sample from Birchbox this month? Are you happy with box?

  1. For $10, you cannot go wrong with this box. Birchbox and Ipsy were my first 2 subscription boxes (ordered them at the same time), and they are the ones that have gotten me completely hooked! I am just in love. I love the surprises every month. These products are USED. Whether I use them right away, bring them on vacation with me (travel-sized plus point), or give them to a loved one if it’s not something that I am necessarily goingto use. When you give something to someone, they are so happy! They wouldn’t be getting this luxury beauty product if you hadn’t given it to them. There have not been many things that I give away, but I do give away anything eyebrow related (I don’t do that. Mine are pretty good), and also any duplicates I get (there have been maybe 3-4 of those) in the last 3 months (not bad!). June’s BB was just as satisfying as May’s. I got the Amika dry shampoo (best one I have ever tried), The Real Chemistry 3 Minute Peel (Meh, but you can’t love everything. I wouldn’t know if I didn’t try), The Supergoop Sun Block (I can never have enough suncare products, especially when they are this good!), Dr. Jart BB Night Beauty Balm (You could have stopped me at Dr. Jart. period), and then L. Erickson Narrow Grab and Go Pony (a cute fabric elastic (bright red). Threw it in my beach bag and Bam! tried 5 new products for $10. I’m a fan.

  2. I choose the Skyn Iceland eye patches as my choice but ended up with the Coola Sunscreen AND the DrJardt+ micro water. I contacted them and they sent the right sample out. Love Coola products but thy are way to expensive. You can buy their other line, Hang Ten, for a great price, love it!

  3. I have been getting Birchbox for a few months now – while I kind of prefer Ipsy (which I also get) I will say that Birchbox has good customer service. They try to right any wrongs such as wrong item or missing item and the points accumulate quickly. I just got used a coupon plus $30 in points to get some really cool stuff. One thing that makes me different apparently is that I am a perfume junky and like to try new fragrances.

    • I love perfume too and am always happy to get perfume samples in sub boxes. Even the little vials make me happy!

  4. I got the same box as Liz! I must say that I absolutely loved the Bliss mask and I have already ordered the Marcelle BB cream in full size. This was a great box, I am very happy with it as I’ll be using everything I got.

  5. I subscribed to both Ipsy and Birchbox early on, but ended up canceling my Ipsy for another Birchbox. This month was a bummer for both accounts, but their new sample choice preview is up!!! And it looks amazingggggg – don’t cancel your subscription just yet!

  6. In all honesty, I wanted to try Birchbox and compare it to Ipsy and ipsy is just killing it! It’s comparable more so to the more expensive $20+ subscriptions. Birchbox is quiet disappointing, with only a few of the products being something I can use. The only thing that Birchbox has going for it is the ease of accumulating points and people can buy stuff from the shop. I did just buy some expensive items from the shop using 20% coupon plus $10 off points. Great deal, but not worth my subscription. Saving the money and want to find another subscription that will give me a better value (and quality of products).

    • Thanks for sharing, Ellen. I think I will give Birchbox a rest and sign up for ipsy in the fall. I used to work with a friend who got ipsy but was very particular and gave me the stuff she didn’t want. I do miss that sweet deal!

  7. Finally got a sneek peek at my box! I’m getting Supergoop SPF, Marcelle liner, the bb cream, a hair protector spray, a hair tie and of course, a darn fragrance sample! Kinda wish they’d let us opt out of getting those, but all in all I’m happy BC the bb cream and liner I wanted most. Also the hair clip, but at 9.99 for 2 I can easily get them with my birchbox points! The thing I like best about birchbox is even if your box isn’t the greatest, you still get $5 back just by doing the reviews and can use it on products you really want or love! That makes it only really five bucks for your box and sometimes you are surprised by something you think you won’t like and end up loving it! So that’s why I stay even if I’m not happy with certain months, the chance to sample 5 products plus have a cute reusable box!

    • Hello, I am fairly new to subscription boxes and have tried and liked my Ipsy and GoodeBox so far, but was not crazy about my Conscious Box so will cancel that one. I have a Birchbox question… Do you choose the curated box and know what you are going to get or prefer the single sample choice enjoying the surprise items? Are the surprise items of higher value or size? I am not too picky, since I don’t have a lot of extra stuff, and am willing to gift what I don’t use. I enjoy all the makeup items, can use most of the skin care offerings but since I use a specific cleansing line for my hair, those items would be gifted. The $10.00 price point is hard to resist, and I love reading your posts with all your thoughts and suggestions. By the way, if you have another box you can endorse I’m listening….Thanks!

  8. I received 20% off which I used to purchase Coola Sunscreen, TATCHA blotting papers, and a Baggu bag. I received the Say Yes box.

    My box:
    – Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream – 61 ingredients if I counted correctly. No way am I using that. I only counted because I was checking the ingredient list to see if I could use it. It is loooong!
    – Coola SPF 50 Sport Mango – My PYS. I go through lots of sunscreen in the summer. I agree with Liz on the Pina Colada scent.
    – Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner Mulberry – Giving to my sister.
    – Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Can’t use because of the aloe.
    – Comptoir Sud Pacifique – Smells like Vanilla Extract. I’m going to give it a try anyways once I am done running errands.
    – Darby Clip – This is useful.

    I’m going to see if my sister will use the 2 face products. I did receive the Whish and Caudalie addons.

    I wish BB offered an ingredient conscious box or at least the option of having one sample included in your box every month. I miss the ingredient conscious tab. It made it easier to look for items. I like the points, but doubt I will renew my year sub when it is up.

    • How did you use the code that you received to purchase products?

  9. This is my first box and I got it for $1. Not sure I’d be happy if I paid $10.

    20g Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator (nice big size)
    Coastal Scents 4 shadow sampler
    Marcelle pencil in Indigo (darker blue than Lagoon)
    Supergoop SPF eye cream (glad to have this for camping and beaching)
    Dr. Jart Night BB
    EmiJay hair tie in a greenish gold color (just cut my hair so if you love these, let’s swap!)

  10. I just started Birchbox in May and didn’t receive an e-mail for my sample choice for June, so dissapointed on that.

    My June box came with the eyeliner in a dark blue ( i was hoping for the kit that was posted in the pix), bb glow cream, teeny tiny conditioner which I can barely get one use out of, chemical peel, Tony &guy pre-heat spray (it’s a good size, but I indicated I air dry my hair, so I’ll never use this), and my extra is a hair clip that adjusts to thick hair. Overall I’m happier with this box than my May box. My May box had makeup colors that don’t work for me.

    I’m on the fence about trying Ipsy. I cancelled my Walmart sub account. I loved my FabiFitFun boxes. My addiction started from Sephora’s boxes.

  11. First, can I say how much I love my actual box? It’s so pretty, looks like a sunset! Mine is lavender and peach. For me, this is my best birch box yet! On the last month of an annual subscription. :). I did get a perfume sample but HOORAY! No hair products! I am sick of shampoos, sprays, leave-ins and specified on birchbox and glossybox that I don’t want hair products. I have superfine hair that gets weighed down unless using very particular shampoo and conditioner. I get hair products every month in some version. I got a nice blue eyeliner (navy), a clean perfume vial, a Liz Earle face spray, a caudalie cleaning milk and peel sample and the hair tie as well as a sunscreen sample. Total win! So happy!

  12. This is my second box. I hit the same exact box as crg2008 except my hair tie was red. Can’t wait to try the peel! Oh and I got 20% off on my coupons code.

  13. How do you wear that hair tie? Where is the big knot supposed to go?

  14. Got a 10% of 50$ code in mine. Sadness, hopefully my mom’s is more promising!

  15. I got one of my Birchboxes today, I got the Temple Spa shampoo and conditioner, a L. Erickson hair tie, which is nice quality. Also got Cotz Sunscreen, Dr Jart ceramidin day tint and marcelle eyeliner in Blue Lagoon. My other one has the shampoo and conditioner and hair tie coming too. I didn’t pick my sample this month, last month when I didn’t I got a box that fit my profile perfectly. This month is more like the haircare box. Ipsy was unfortunately better for me this month and I’m always team Birchbox. oh and my coupon was for 10% off a $50 purchase which kinda sucks too lol.

  16. I was pretty disappointed in my box. I got a perfume sample AGAIN. This is the 3rd one in 3 months. I picked the lowest amount of perfume samples in the profile.

    I am happy about the face mask, hair tie, and the mango sunscreen (that was my pick this month.

    Unhappy about the Minu shampoo for colored hair. Although my hair is colored, it is also dry, thick, and kinky curly. I need something super moisturizing. I may try it though. I got a plum colored eyeliner, when I tested it on my hand it looked dk. grey, which I already have. I think I will try it though and see how it looks on the eyes. I was really hoping for blue. Then I got two sample packets and a perfume.

    I am really considering unsubscribing. I said I would if I got another perfume sample. Ugg….

  17. I thought everyone was supposed to get the Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner! Did anyone? I didn’t, and it looks like Liz didn’t either!

    • No. They were held up at customs. There was a letter explaining this at the bottom of the tracking email.

  18. I’ll be getting the same box as Liz, if it ever shows up. Not Birchbox’s fault, but it was sent to the wrong post office a few hours away, so I have no idea how long it will take to make its way here.

    I’m excited for it, though! I love those ribbon hair ties, I’ve been wanting to try the Amika dry shampoo, and the BB looks like something I might love. I would like to try that eyeliner, but I’m really hoping mine isn’t blue (that doesn’t look good with my eye color).

    I will definitely swap the Coola sunscreen because I already have more than enough sunscreen, and possibly the Bliss mask as well, just because we’re getting the Eslor mask in BoxyCharm this month.

  19. I’m getting 3 boxes this month – I couldn’t pass up on the $1 deal – and I’m not unhappy with my boxes. Then again, I only paid $1 for each. Altogether I’m getting:

    Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow X2
    Vasanti scrub
    real chemistry peel
    Dr. Jart Ceramidin cream
    Supergoop sunscreen X2
    COOLA sunscreen
    Number 4 detangler
    Catherine Malandrino perfume
    Compotir Sud Pacific perfume
    Folle de Joie perfume
    pony tail holder
    hair clip X2
    Marcelle mini eye-pencil X3

    All in all, the only things I don’t want are the Real Chemistry peel (made in China), the Catherine Malandrino perfume (don’t like the scent) and the 3 mini eye-liners. I’m sure there will be a lot available to swap, so I’ll probably just give them away to my daughters’ friends.

    • The Vasanti scrub is awesome!! I got it as a sample in my May Birchbox and bought the full size right away. It’s gentle so it doesn’t scratch or irritate but it makes your skin glow. Seriously great stuff!

      • Agreed, I love the Vasanti scrub! Even though I purchase the full size regularly, I don’t ever mind getting a sample. They are great to have in a travel bag for trips!

  20. I haven’t gotten my box yet but I know what is in it.
    Claudalie Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid
    Dr. Jart Dermaclear Microwater (my sample pick)
    Klorane Shampoo and Conditioner with Mango Butter
    Clean Fresh LAundry Parfum,
    L. Erickson Grab & Go Pony Tube, which I am assuming is just one or two pony tail holders not the entire tube
    Marcelle Mini Waterproff Eyeliner Travel kit on my site it lists it as a kit but I am assuming it’s a single mini eyeliner not the entire kit based on the comments.

    Overall I’m okay with the box. I’ll get use of the pony tail holders, I’m actually excited to try the parfum, usually I’m not. Many scents trigger migrains for me so I have to be really careful and the perfume samples I’ve received in the past smelled awful. However I love clean soapy cotton scents so hopefully this will be a winner for me. I’m excited to try the microwater. Shampoo and conditioner is meh for me but it will be used. Kinda scared about the bright blue eyeliner, I don’t think that will work for me but I can give that to my step daughter. As for the Claudalie thing, I’ve no clue what that is so hopefully that will be a great discovery this month?

  21. i received the following:
    Beauty Proctector-protect & detangle
    Coola SPF 30 cucumber moisturizer for face
    Marcelle BB cream
    Marcelle eyeliner – blue (I was looking forward to the Eeyko liner!)
    Hydro firming eye gels
    Emi Jay hair tie

    I’ve been with BB for 7 months and I’m really on the fence with their boxes. This box is just ok for me.

    • I agree, I wanted the Eyeko liner. I’m ok with trying the Marcelle, but I definitely don’t want blue.

  22. My box had the micro water(my sample choice), the hair tie in baby blue, templespa shampoo and conditioner, the little eyeliner in mulberry, and the 3 minute chemistry peel. This is my 3rd month with BB and I have yet to be disappointed. If I don’t like/want a product my mother gladly takes them. Lol.

  23. I’m hoping my box is just like yours! I haven’t even been able to sneek a peek at mine yet 🙁 but going through YouTube vids I see just about everyone getting the same stuff so I’m hopeful! I’d love that BB cream and the eyeliner, also there is an awesome hair clip I’d be thrilled with!

  24. I wish I got your box! I got shampoo and conditioner samples AGAIN! The same eye liner, eye packets the coola and a hair tie but not as nice as yours! Was a different material ;(

    • sounds like i got the same box as you. the shampoo i got smells very masculine and i do not like it. the sunscreen is ok. my card says that my hair tie is a fun colorful extra. its brown : )
      eye liner was blue…i dont mind the blue but it says its waterproof. i sampled it on my hand and it smudged everywhere. how can it be waterproof and totally smudgeable ? i guess they are not the same but i would prefer no smudge vs waterproof.

      • I already have mine and it is definitely not waterproof.

      • I swatched “indigo” on my wrist and had to scrub hard to get it off. I also got “mulberry”, but I didn’t swatch it.

  25. For the first time ever I got the exact same box as Liz. I am happy with it, and items that I don’t use I always swap or give to family members to try. I feel like I got good value for my money.

  26. This is my favorite Birchbox yet. I got a gold metallic L.Erickson hair elastic that is actually strong enough to work in my thick hair. Marcelle eyeliner in electric blue wich is a bright blue. I’m actually thrilled not to have another Eyeko fat liner as I bought 2 months ago and am still using them. I love this blue eyeliner. Amika dry shampoo. I can always use dry shampoo and I love Amika products. Super Goop sunscreen. I adore the Super Goop brand so I’m always happy to get one of their products. Dr Jart BB cream. Haven’t tried this particular brand so am looking forward to trying this. Real Chemistry 3 minute peel. Love this product. I’m always happy with peels and this one is especially nice. I didn’t pick a sample. I was pleasantly surprised to get 6 items instead of 5. My code was 20% off 50.00 and I already used it lol

  27. I won’t use it, so first person to take it can have my code (20% off $50) SAYYES20KJV635

    • Thanks!

  28. My box is little different from what I’ve read so far. I got Joie Folle de Joie eau de Parfum, Marcelle BB cream Golden Glow, Marcelle Waterprooof Eyeliner, Real Chemistry Luminous 3-minute Peel, Sugergoop! Everyday SPF 50 with Cellular Response Technology (my pick), and one Sarahpotempa Darby Clip. Did anyone get this clip? BB’s website sells as set of 2, and I got one – but I think this one is a winner. This one is perfect for my thick hair.

    • I got the same box (probably since I picked the Supergoop! sunscreen too). I wish I’d gotten a hair tie since the clip says it’s for sectioning/styling, and I’m a “roll down the windows to dry your hair on the drive to work” kind of person.

    • I got this box, too. I didn’t pick a sample for this one. I love the clip, although I’ll use it for when I need my hair up off of my neck in the summer heat, not for sectioning. My eyeliner was mulberry, which is the color I was hoping for. I could do without the perfume sampler, but otherwise I am pleased.

  29. This is the first month in my 2 years with bb that I was severely disappointed. My box had 2 sunscreen, 1 liner, 1 body lotion perfume sample, and a hair tie. This month seemed like such a throwaway. It’s like, they had this random assortment of products they didn’t know how to get rid of by the same repeat brands they’ve sent in practically every bb so they pulled a Hail Mary and put them in the June boxes, with a random hair accessory for good measure.

  30. How do you know what the full size size is? I’m trying to calculate the value of my box but I can’t find how big each product is on get site

  31. Tocca Bianca perfume, Mirenesse Lip Rouge, SuperGoop (what I picked), a Pura Vida hair tie?, Temple Spa shampoo and conditioner. Mally Liquid Blush and the Marcelle mini-eyeliner travel kit for my full size add-ons. I’m happy.

    • Were these the add-ons for the deluxe box, or ones that you added? I am still on the fence about the deluxe box and trying to watch what types of items they send out. Those type of makeup items would probably be enough to push me over the hump.

      • These are the ones they picked for me for the extra $20 “beta” option (the deluxe box). This is my second month with BB and my first of getting the extra two items – last month I was charged $30 but my box only had the 5 samples so they refunded me $20 (I guess they can’t send the extra stuff out separately). I was afraid it would be all mascara and nail polish so I’m happy so far! 🙂

        • That is what I was afraid of, especially since the only two reviews I have seen so far, were just that a nail polish and mascara or the like. Thank you for the info.

          • This is my 3rd month with the $30.00 deluxe on box and this month every deluxe box got the full size Mally Liquid Blush, and either the full size Mirenesse Lip Rouge or the full size Mirenesse mascara (I called BB for a points glitch and asked). Unfortunately, in my box I got the full size mascara, which I all ready have 3 samples of, so I am kinda bummed and looking to trade for the Lip Rouge.

  32. After two years of membership, I cancelled my Birchbox last month and this reaffirms why. The first six months, I LOVED it and got tons of interesting samples and very few repeats. Then for all of last year, I noticed that every three months or so I would have 2-3 repeats. I totally get that you can’t be super unique every month and there are lots of customers to please, but it got to the point where I wasn’t ever getting anything new, even if it was hyped for that month.

    • I totally agree, I’m 7 months in and I think I might cancel. I keep getting those lousy perfumes even though I asked not to on their website, and compared to Boxycharm the value is just not there. I will probably let this 1 year run out and not renew.

    • I cancelled BB and 5 others yesterday, I am going for the big boxes only so I can use extra items I don’t like for gifts for those that do, or swap them. 🙂 Nothing wrong with any of the boxes, I just wont change my standby products that often to use tiny samples in most boxes.

      • I’m just keeping Birchbox one more month so that I can cash out $30 instead of $20.. I have 280 points.. but not sure it’s really worth it since I swap 95% of the items.

  33. I’m disappointed with Birchbox. I got a tiny perfume sample in May, and then this month I got a tiny perfume sample that I wasn’t even supposed to get instead of the products on my card. I was supposed to get the Skyn Iceland Cooling Eye gels- I even emailed my selection to customer service and had it confirmed. I was also supposed to get the COOLA 50 spf in Mango. Both items are on my item card and my review thingy, but instead I got an aloe spray and a tiny perfume sample that I didn’t want 🙁

    • Also- My “prize” was a 10% discount off of $50. Did anybody get anything else?

      • My “Say Yes to Adventure” prize was also 10% off a $50.00 purchase. Big whoop.

      • Mine was 20% off $50. We’ll see what I get in my other box.

      • I got the 10% discount as well 🙁

    • Email them about it. I was supposed to get the eye gels but it’s not listed in my account. (I, too, had an email confirming it.) They said they would send it out to me separately.

      • Thanks! I did email them with a picture. That gives me hope 🙂

    • I’ve gotten perfume twice out of two boxes so far and I told them only “no more than 6 times per year” so I thought that was a little odd. BUT I think I will like this one coming so I was mollified by that.

  34. I got Supergoop!, Dr. Jart+ Micro water, Hair tie, Coastal Scents Revealed 3 palette, Klorane shampoo and conditioner, Marcelle eye liner. Haven’t gotten it in the mail but I am super happy. Seems like I did pretty good. I think they are giving away extra samples as prizes because it looked like someone got an extra eye liner that said they won and it looks like I might have gotten something extra too. I’ll know when I get mine….

    • I got the same box as you but have not received yet. I’m so excited for it! The people that won are people who entered the benefit + Birchbox sweepstakes that after you entered it, said you would find out if you’ve won when a benefit product appeared in your June Birchbox.

      • ** won the extra samples I meant. The postcards with the codes were something separate.

      • Thanks! Can’t wait to get mine either. I’ve been happy with all my boxes. But I am pretty new I think. About 6 boxes in.

  35. I am almost out of black eyeliner and was looking forward to the eyeko, and specifically signed up for a second box for that! I always hear everyone saying that they’re drowning in black liner so maybe I’ll peruse the swap site for some. I have a lifetime supply of blue/purple/gray liners so the marcelle is a no substitute for me.

  36. Hi there! I got the same exact box as you, Liz, and you aren’t missing much by not being able to use the Bliss mask— I tried it last night and it was just ‘meh’. I’ll use the sample but it will likely not result in a purchase. I did get a 20% off code with I used immediately to by Glam Glow Power Mud, in addition to using $20 wortg of points! I also got a nice sample of the new colored (brown) Benefit eyeliner- saying I was a winner ( I think I entered a giveaway for this?? don’t remember lol) and I love it! Over the eyeliners for a while!

  37. I have two subscriptions and I’m not excited by either one of them. 2/12 I’ve had before. Another 2/12 are extras. Then the eyeliner comes in all the boxes so unless I get two different colors in each box, those will be duplicates. What’s left is a sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, perfume, Liz Earle tonic spritz and Dr. Jart Microwater. The last two are the only items I’m looking forwards to. Well, I’ve had a string of good boxes so I guess my luck ran out. lol.

    • Not sure if one was a gift or something, but for the same price ($20/mo) you can subscribe to Boxycharm which has more full-size products. So far I’m happy with it!

  38. I’m pretty bummed about the EYEKO because I only resubbed for it… and now no EYEKO. I’m getting the Marcelle BB cream, hair tie (I have a pixie cut soooo), Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle (again, I have like 2 inches of hair), COOLA cucumber moisturizer SPF30, Skyn Iceland hydro cooling eye gels and the Marcelle eyeliner… definitely already cancelled and will NOT be resubbing!

    • Why didn’t we get the eyeko eyeliner? So confused!

      • They got held up at customs according to CS. I’m disappointed. The only sample I liked was my SU Davines wash. Other than that a bunch of worthless items to me.

  39. My box is supposed to arrive today. I’m rooting for a good surprise code. Seems like a lot of people are getting 10% off $50 which isn’t enough to entice me (famous last words).

    Seems like many boxes are packed with a similar formula this month – a sunscreen, the travel eyeliner, a hair product (styling or shampoo/conditioner) a hair band/tie, and a PYS. I’m glad they seem to all have 6 items, one more to review!

  40. Got a navy eyeliner, the BB glow, a Coola product, a hair tie, the eye gels, and a leave-in conditioner. I’m really happy with the value and the variety of products I got. This was a great month for me :-D.

  41. I was waiting for your June 2015 Birchbox review, Thanks for posting! 🙂
    My box included: Beauty Protector protect & detangle, 0.24 fl oz. Coola SPF 30 cucumber moisturizer for face, 0.24 oz. Marcelle BB cream golden glow, Skyn Iceland hydro cool firming eye gels, Marcelle waterproof eyeliner in electric blue, and an Emi Jay hair tie. My prize was a 10% off coupon

  42. I just got my second box today, I got that faster b/c I didn’t choose a sample. They ended up giving me the supergoop. I also got the amika dry shampoo, the blue eyeliner, and then Dr Jart night beauty balm, the real chemistry peel and a red hairband. I could do without any eyeliners, I don’t wear them so they are piling up from these subs! I’m happy with the other samples. I’m hoping I get a different variety in my other box, that one I chose the Coola.

  43. My box came today too! I got the same exact box as Liz right down to the color of the hair tie. The eyeliner is the only thing I probably won’t use due to the color. However, I did try the liner since I’ve yet to find one that I can apply that doesn’t look like a hot mess on me and this particular formula might work…So not a total loss. 🙂 I was really looking forward to the Eyeko liner since it looked different than any liner I’ve tried. Oh, well. Maybe I’ll get to try it another time.

    Oh, and my reward was a 20% off. I’ll take it since I’ve got my eye on a few things in the store.

  44. My box was identical, except my hair tie was red. I also chose the Coola product. Still waiting to see what is in my second box, I’ll be bummed if it is too similiar.

  45. My box isn’t here yet so I don’t know what my code will bring but I got the coola sample, Real Chemistry 3 minute peel (I’ve had it before and like it so I’m not too upset about a repeat), Tocca Eau De Parfum in Bianca (not thrilled, I don’t like many perfumes), Davnes MINU shampoo & conditioner, MINU hair serum, L. Erickson Grab & Go Pony Tube, and Marcelle Mini Waterproof Eyeliner. Seems like they were trying to make up for the eyeko not being in there with a few extras. I’m happy with most of it, but could live without the perfume.

  46. Did this box not come with a code or something to enter a contest? We’ve been hearing there would be giveaways…

    Also they said the Eyeko liners were held up in customs and they hope to include them in a box soon. They put a note at the bottom of the tracking email.

    • Oh yes it did – my code was for 10% off, so it didn’t seem to exciting to be worth mentioning. I’m hoping to hear some MSA readers win big though! 🙂

    • Thanks Carly! I didn’t read past my tracking link! I got my box, and my prize was 20% off.

  47. I went with the curated box and I really wish I hadn’t. If I had 20 more points, I’d just buy something and end my subscription.

  48. Didn’t Birchbox say that everyone would be getting the EYEKO fat liner?

    • That’s what I thought too.. but nope.

      • When they sent out the tracking number email, there was a blurb saying the eyeliners were held up in customs and would come in future boxes.

        • I never even received a track number for mine. Shocked me when it arrived since I show on my list it doesn’t ship out until the 10th.

    • It apparently got held up in customs, so they said they were replacing it with the mercelle liner + a code for a free surprise.

    • The EYEKO liner was stuck in customs so they substituted the Marcelle liners for everyone. I believe there are 4 possible colors you can get and they promised the EYEKO liners in a future box

      • I did not receive an eyeliner. I wrote to Birchbox and they said they replaced it with the Marcelle BB cream I received. I am still disappointed because my other items were Harvey Price hello body cream, Oribe fragrance sample and Real Chemistry. (this is the third time they have sent me that).

        • This was my exact experience. I’m thinking the only thing I’m paying for at this point is for getting my hopes up.

    • I thought that too! I cancelled my extra subs for nothing! I only did it because I though I’d end up with three fat liners. What gives? But I am happy for everyone who didn’t want that liner.

    • I was wondering the same thing! Just watched the reveal video again to see if I misheard. Bummer.
