  1. So sad ??
    I had a fill in mail carrier and she brought my Birchbox to the wrong address now it’s b presumed stolen!?

  2. First time getting 7 items and I didn’t see this combo listed yet:
    *Milk Lip and Cheek
    *Mally Beauty mascara
    *Three items from Davines Naturaltech – Replumping Hair Filler, shampoo and conditioner
    *Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser
    *Air Repair Boosting Moisturizer

    Pretty jazzed about trying the Davines line since I’ve seen so many positive comments about it.

    • Beware, one of the top 5 ingredients in Davines is alcohol -__-.

    • Same one here!

  3. I still can’t see what is in my September box :-/ I wonder why, it makes me nervous. You ladies have me on pins and needles to find out!

  4. Why are the UK boxes so much better??? I wish I could order the UK birchbox instead!!
    The products are nice and the September box is SO cute! It has a little drawer that pulls out! So cute I want it!

  5. I’m getting:
    JUARA Candlenut Body Creme (Interesting)
    derma e® Microdermabrasion Scrub (Also interesting)
    Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Natural Tint – For Brunette to Dark Hair (Cautiously optimistic)
    Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek (My sample choice)
    Bioderma® Sébium H2O (Excited to try)

    I feel like Birchbox has redeemed itself to me. After the July box I was ready to cancel, but I’m glad I didn’t. I got the curated box for August and I’m happy with it. This box is also a hit for me.

    And to anyone thinking of subscribing, I would say the Stila liquid lipstick is worth it even without the rest of the box. I got one last month and I love it!

    • Hey I got the exact same products as you!!

      -JUARA Candlenut Body Creme
      -derma e® Microdermabrasion Scrub
      -Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Natural Tint – For
      Brunette to Dark Hair
      -Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek
      -Bioderma® Sébium H2O

      I’m happy to try the Milk makeup lip+cheek but I was hoping to get more makeup ? Im out of makeup remover so we’ll see how the Bioderma works out. I’ve never tried dry shampoo so I’m exited for the Klorane dry shampoo. I’m not too happy with the derma e face scrub since I don’t have acne and was up with this candlenut body cream?! Has anyone tried it? I don’t need body creams ? I guess I like three products out of the five so meh. Most likely I will end up cancelling this sub and just stick to Ipsy, although Ipsy doesn’t have many makeup choices for sept. glam bag… Was up with that!! Beauty boxes and bags with not many makeup choices?! Holy ?

  6. This is the 1st month in probably 8 months, I decided to risk it & not pick the curated box. What a HUGE mistake! I’m not happy AT ALL! BTW~ I didn’t even get my box in June! I contacted CS & they responded with “Sorry, we’re all out of boxes, so we won’t charge you for July..” I’ve never had that happen, let alone giving no replacement/points as a obligatory gesture. This was also the month that I added the new Benefit Brow Product, at full price. I’ll give it to them, they sent out a replacement for that. BUT, I waited nearly 5 weeks for it & honestly could’ve bought it from Sephora the day it was released, since it’s 6 min from my house! I was so jealous hearing everyone rave about the new Benefit brow products, as I sat & waited for something I paid for over 5 weeks! UGH

    Opps! Sorry about the BB rant.? Back to my box: (7 items)
    ~Milk Makeup Highlighter
    ~Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution
    ~dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser
    ~COOLA® Mineral Face SPF 30 Unscented Matte Tint
    ~Davines Natural-Tech Hair Filler
    ~Davines Natural Tech Shampoo
    ~Davines Natural Tech Conditioner

    Seriously though Birchbox… YOU”RE REALLY ALL OUT OF BOXES?????? lol!? Just put together any kind of box!?! xo.??

    • I think this is the same exact box I’m getting. I’m really looking forward to it!
      Although this is my first month with BB so I’ll see how I like the first month experience.

    • Box twin.

    • I’m getting the same box, but it sounds great to me. I’m looking forward to trying the Kiehl’s product to see if it helps with some old teenage acne scars. I also got the Davine’s hair samples last month and loved them so I hope I like this formula too. I’m going to buy either last months set (your hair assistant prep products) or this months (natural tech) set depending on which ones I like best. My hair is really long, and pretty thin so I should choose the one with the most volume. Does anybody know which one would make my hair the fullest? I could see somebody being disappointed with my last two boxes if they didn’t like the Davine’s product’s each box has had three of them.

  7. Don’t think I’ve seen my box combo here yet … seems like lots of variety this time for boxes! I did not do a sample pick, and here’s what I am getting:
    * Privai Nourishing Face & Body Oil
    *Milk Makeup Highlighter
    *Benefit They’re Real! Tinted Lash Primer
    *Three items from Davines Naturaltech – Replumping Hair Filler, shampoo and conditioner
    *Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser

    Nice to have seven items (though I’m sure 1-2 will be foil packets), and excited to try everything! Anyone else getting this box too?

    • I am also getting this same box! Not too disappointed.

  8. 1st box is the. Curated box.
    -vasanti enzyme thing. I am going to love trying this
    -amika dry shampoo. Happy to receive it
    -Dr jart bb cream. I like bb cremaa
    -milk mascara . I have 50 mascara lol but haven’t tried this one
    -Supergoop spf lip thing. I wish it wasn’t shiny

    2nd box the sample choice.
    -Milk Highlighter. I would like this since I chose it
    -Loc lipgloss. I dont wear lip gkoss
    -Oribe body wash . eh i have alot of bw
    -Dark spot corrector. Bad reviews
    -Amika dry shampoo.I’m new to it so I would love to try it
    -Hot cloth starter kit. I’m excited for this

  9. Hopefully all you 6/7 product people will actually get 6/7 products. Once one of my boxes said that I was going to get 6 samples but I only got 5.

    Good Luck!

    • The curated box is 5. But I seem to like it better than my 22nd box. I shouldn’t have check i have discoloration but at least they listened lol

    • After a year of subbing to BB, I never seem to get more than five samples :/

  10. I really love my box they chose for me this month. I especially can’t wait to try the Milk lip and cheek product! Does anyone know about the actual box? It’s really pretty but when I go to my app it shows a different one for September and it’s kind of ugly! I hope I get the pretty box!

  11. My box :
    Oribe Glaze for Beautiful Color
    Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek
    TOCCA Travel Fragrance Spray – Florence
    Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit
    COOLA® Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer
    Oribe Conditioner for Beautiful Color
    Oribe Shampoo for Beautiful Color

    Excited !!!

    • I’m getting the exact same products!

    • Box twins! I am excited too! this was going to be my last birch box but now I will probably hang around.

    • Same box as well! This is the first I’ve been excited about in a while.

  12. Horrible box for me this month 🙁
    The only thing I like and will use is my sample choice! 🙁

  13. Supergoop!® Shine-On Lip Screen SPF 50

    Milk Makeup Ubame Mascara

    Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Natural Tint – For Brunette to Dark Hair

    Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer

    dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser

    I’m excited to try these all out.

  14. I’m getting:

    Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek
    Helmut Lang Cuiron
    Davines MOMO Shampoo & Conditioner – For Dry or Dehydrated Hair
    Balance Me Radiance Face Mask

    I’m a little nervous about the Helmut – I’m really sensitive to fragrances, and this one has mixed reviews. Happy I’m getting the Milk Lip & Cheek stain.

  15. I’m not in love with either of my boxes. I get three but the third isn’t showing. I really can’t complain though cos I got these two for free this month plus two delux samples.

    – Milk Highlighter
    – Bioderma Sébium H20
    – Elizabeth Motts It’s So Big Mascara
    – R+CO ANALOG Cleasing Foam Conditioner
    – Derma Microdermabrasion Scrub

    – Milk Mascara
    – LOC Ultra Gloss Lip Trio
    – Air Repair Moisturizer
    – Klorane Dry Sampoo w/Nettle
    – Dr. Brandt Pores No More

    I’m happy about the Bioderma water, the highlighter and Dr. Brandt. I guess I’m okay with the lip trio IF it’s actually a trio but the rest I’m not happy about. Especially the dry shampoo! I have too many. I really hope my third box is better.

    I wish I’d gotten the Briogeo conditioner and thermal spring water. If anyone wants to swap I have boxes and boxes of samples!

    • It’s not a trio it’s just one of the colors

    • I got the same box as your first box. I was a little irritated to see another mascara, but oh well. Also kinda curios about the cleansing conditioner. Seems like a weird concept! The rest looks great though!

    • If you order three boxes how do you avoid getting duplicate products, or does that happen from time to time? I’m curious because I’m thinking of ordering another BB or Ipsy sub because they are so cheap I just worry I will get tons of duplicates. I was also thinking of trying Glossy Box does anyone like that box, or is there a better box in your opinion? I get BB, Ipsy, Sephora, and Boxy Charm and so far so good, but because I’m still pretty new to subs I’m looking for advice on which boxes are the ones people like best. I would be interested in trying some more expensive ones if anybody has good recommendations, but so far from what I saw the more expensive ones, have jewelry and accessories that I don’t wear much. I appreciate any feedback it looks like you all have a lot of experience with different boxes.

      • Glossybox was my fist sub, and when I signed up I got August plus two past boxes free. Then they had the buy Aug, Sep, Oct and get the “Full of love” box (Mother’s day) and one previous box. So in the past 3 weeks I have got 6 GB’s. I have two May, 2 August, one December and the Mother’s day box.

        Overall I am impressed with sample sizes, VERY generous and the quality of the products. The boxes themselves are pretty (different shades of pink) with a nice card describing everything and the products are wrapped in tissue paper. The GB is boxed within another box and so the items are very well protected unlike my Beautyfix box that I got today that was smashed on one corner and the items were packed only in the outer box (all items were miraculously undamaged). I have 2 more months of GB coming, September (which I can’t wait for as the box is gorgeous) and October. After those two I will then decide if I stick with GB or try another sub (too many to choose from and a limited budget).

  16. I’m not in love with either of my boxes. I get three but the third isn’t showing. I really can’t complain though cos I got these two for free this month plus two delux samples.

    – Milk Highlighter
    – Bioderma Sébium H20
    – Elizabeth Motts It’s So Big Mascara
    – R+CO ANALOG Cleasing Foam Conditioner
    – Derma Microdermabrasion Scrub

    – Milk Mascara
    – LOC Ultra Gloss Lip Trio
    – Air Repair Moisturizer
    – Klorane Dry Sampoo w/Nettle
    – Dr. Brandt Pores No More

    I’m happy about the Bioderma water, the highlighter and Dr. Brandt. I guess I’m okay with the lip trio IF it’s actually a trio but the rest I’m not happy about. Especially the dry shampoo! I have too many. I really hope my third box is better.

    I wish I’d gotten the Briogeo conditioner and thermal spring water. If anyone wants to swap I have boxes and boxes of samples!

    Melleighmartin@gmail.com

    • Your first box is the same as mine! 🙂 I got it today! I chose the Milk highlighter, and it’s beautiful and smells sweet! I’m SO excited about the E Mott mascara (not that I need any, but I have wanted to try this!). The foaming conditioner sounds very intriguing. I have to be careful what I put on my very fine hair, and this his silicone in it which messes with my hair, but I am going to try it. I’m excited about the DermaE, but mine was open and looks used. *Please tell me if yours was sealed*. Thank you. 🙂 I am less than thrilled about the Bioderma water because it is just for one use. I will enjoy it anyway. :>

  17. More shampoo and body wash and perfume for me. I’m definitely canceling BB in 2 more months after being a loyal long-time subscriber. I’m glad most of you are happy with your boxes!!

    • I am getting 7 products this month, after 2 1/2 years that has never happened.
      Vera Bradley Vanilla Sea Salt Body Lotion
      Vera Bradley Vanilla Sea Salt Perfume
      Beauty Protector Protect and Blonde Shampoo
      Oribe Cote de Azure Replenishing Body Wash
      Dr Jarts Water Drop Moisturizer
      Milk Highlighter
      Balance Me Eye Cream
      I am happy with the brands and products for $10!

      • I am receiving the exact same box & thrilled! 7 products is great!

  18. Happier with this box than any I’ve gotten in a long time. Still thinking I’ll cancel after my year is up, but at least I’ll use most of these:

    – Milk Ubame Mascara (my choice)
    – The Body Shop drops of youth
    – Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse
    – Klorane Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
    – Avene Spring Water

    I love beauty oils so I’m excited for the Body Shop, the lemon rinse is a cool different kind of hair product that I’m interested to try, and I can always use makeup remover and water sprays (even if i would never pay for just canned water 😛 )

    • I’m getting the same box! I am not so happy about the Drops of Youth oil (as I have oily skin). The Avene water (and any water sprays) I’ve always found weird. Again, I have oily skin and can produce the “dewy” look on my own. I am really excited for the Lemon Rinse and Klorane Eye Makeup Remover. I have recently ventured into beauty boxes and regular makeup-wearing and don’t yet have an eye makeup remover.

      • Certain beauty oils can actually help with oily skin – I forget the exact science behind it but by adding moisture to your skin, your skin doesn’t feel the need to produce extra oil or something? I would say you could certainly try it and see.

        • Yep! I have super oily skin, and since using face oils, it has really helped tone down the shine! I just apply a tiny bit and it makes my whole face glow rather than the t-zone, and that is a good kind of glow, not an oily looking one, just dewy. I also use oil cleanser. So gentle, and good for the skin!

      • Id love the water if you’re not into it!

    • Oh, I’m jealous! I love BS drops of youth, I didn’t even realize BB gave it out as a sample. I have oily skin that is prone to blemishes and I loved that since it didn’t break my skin out and made it feel really soft. I used to have to buy a ton of it on black friday because otherwise its totally out of my price range

  19. I will be getting:
    Milk Makeup Highlighter (sample choice)
    Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream-supposed to help dark circles YAY!!
    Davines MOMO Conditioner-probably foil but I love this brand and this is new to me
    Davines MOMO Shampoo-excited to try this as well
    TOCCA Florence Perfume-I have to be close to my max on perfume samples not a win
    NUXE Facial Cleansing and Makeup Remover Gel-gets good reviews so I’m excited to try
    Overall I’m actually pretty happy with this box. Other than the perfume sample because I actually already have that. Maybe from Sephora? There isn’t any SPF product, and it feels more personalized to my profile for once.

  20. I really hate my box. I’m getting:
    -Tokyomilk Light Transformation perfume
    -Briogeo Deep Conditioning mask
    -Milk Lip and Cheek
    -Klorane Makeup Remover (I got one of these MONTHS ago and I’ve never used it)
    -Derma e Microdermabrasion scrub

    I’m even more annoyed that some people are getting 6 or 7 samples, while one of my 5 is wasted on a perfume sample. This is my last box. I’m going to switch to something K-beauty

    • Id love to swap for the Briogeo if you’re not interested.

      • I won’t use it, my hair is fine so I don’t need deep conditioners

    • I’m also only getting 5 things, one of which is perfume. Not thrilled 🙁

    • I have been hoping for eye makeup remover or micellar water in at least ONE of my subscriptions for months. I never get it:( I guess I have to go buy some. Lol

      • Oh Amanda, I’ve been there. It’s horrible to get a box you don’t like, especially when you still have a week or two waiting for it to arrive.

      • I got the Bioderma micellar type water and was expecting at least a little bottle… until it arrived as a single use packet. 🙁

    • I will be getting same box as you. I’ve received 3 of the items in previous BB or other boxes and getting a perfume which I hate to receive. So only item I will try is the Milk product. Only 3 more months until my year long subscription is done and I’m cancelling. Jealous that others are getting better boxes with 6 or more samples.

    • Same box, also not happy.

  21. I think it looks pretty good. If Birchbox keeps it up, I might come back.

  22. Anyone’s box design preview in the app look different than the confetti one shown here? Mine changed to a different design.

    • yes, mine is different too

    • Mine is too. I unsubscribed then resubscribed so I wonder if this design is for that reason? I got a plain pink & blue one last time I did that. I don’t really care about the boxes so it doesn’t really matter to me.

  23. my box is terrible, it is making me question why I resubbed to BB after getting fed up with their quality years ago.
    milk highlighter – my pick
    LOC lip pencil
    R + Co analog conditioner – I received R + Co last month, but I actually like their products
    Bioderma water
    Avene water

    seems overkill to have 2 beauty waters in one box

    • I’d love the thermal water if you’re not into it!

    • Mine arrived today-the Bioderma cleansing water is a single use packet. 🙁 I’ve gotten that Avene water before, and it is just water. It just feels good on a hot day.

  24. My box is actually really exciting as well! I have 7 products in it. I’m sure one or two of them is a foil packet, but still! I’m hoping Birchbox wins my heart back… I was an annual subscriber this year and I’m still back and forth about whether I’ll sign up again after my year is up!

  25. Avène Thermal Spring Water
    Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate
    Milk Makeup Highlighter **my choice**
    R+Co TWISTER Curl Primer
    LOC Ultra-Gloss Lip Pencil Trio *** is there any chance at all this is actually a trio???

    Overall I guess I am ok with this month. I really love Milk cosmetics

    • Box twins 🙂

    • I got the trio too and I’m wondering the same.

    • Wow about that lip trio! I would love to try more LOC. So far I have had 2 eye colors and loved them! I only usually get 1 makeup item if any and that is what I want so I love that you got 2! (Or 4!!) 🙂

  26. I *think* I’m excited about this box, but every time I think I’m getting a good box I open it up and the samples are microscopic. Hoping that’s not the case!

    -Beauty Protector Protect & Blonde Toning Shampoo

    – evo fabuloso platinum blonde colour intensifying conditioner

    -Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek

    -Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer

    -dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser

  27. I haven’t seen my variation yet:
    -Erno Laszlo Detoxifying Bespoke Cleansing Set
    -evo liquid rollers curl balm
    -Milk Makeup highlighter (sample choice)
    -Curly Hair Solutions Leave-In Conditioner
    -TOCCA Florence
    I’m a little irritated that one of my samples is being wasted on perfume, especially since I already have two samples of this one- but otherwise it looks like a pretty good box.

  28. I ordered a second box this month and both of my boxes are AWESOME! Like what happened to birchbox? I was going to cancel next month! One box has 7 products in it, 3 of which are davines ❤️ I’m really surprised I like both boxes so much!

    • The 7 products sounds dreamy!! I was not excited about mine until it came and I actually like most of what I got. One of the items though that I was hoping for use as a practical item (cleansing water) came as a single use which really turns me off from BB. I am glad thought that at least I can use 4 of the 5 items in my box which doesn’t happen often.

      • I LOVE my Birchbox this month! 6 items, that has never happened before. I received a full size Autumn Mineral Blush. ? I was curious, how do you order a second box – for a particular month? Or would I need to sub a second and then cancel?

        • Sometimes BB has the curated boxes for sale for $10 to subscribers (or $15 for non-subscribers). I’m not sure if this was the 2nd box mentioned above, but I just thought I’d mention. 🙂

          • Luna,
            Yes, that is what I meant. Thank you. I’ve never noticed where on there site I purchase a 2nd box for that month only. I would like to purchase the month’s curated box for my daughter occasionally.

  29. I will happily swap for the Oribe body wash!

  30. Thanks for posting that link! I always obsessively check for my
    Box reveal and it usually doesn’t reveal itself until the day before my box arrives. I am getting:
    Milk lip and cheek (sample choice)
    The body shop drops of youth
    Oribe body wash
    Davines momo shampoo and conditioner
    Juliette has a gun fragrance
    Nuxe facial cleansing gel

    I love that we get to choose a sample every month. However, I would have liked to not choose a sample this month but they said everyone will receive one of the three milk samples so I figured might as well choose the one I (or my mom) would use most. Looking forward to seeing what type of celebrations they’ll do for their anniversary on the 15th! 🙂

    • I would like to try the Juliette has a gun fragrance. Do you know what one your getting? I’m not sure how the trading works, but if you try it and don’t like I might be interested. Sounds like a nice box.

  31. After last month I was tempted to cancel, however I am glad I stayed because I am getting an AWESOME box this month (IMO)!

    -Vera Bradley Appleberry Champagne Body Lotion
    -Beauty Protector Protect & Blonde Toning Shampoo
    -Oribe Côte d’Azur Replenishing Body Wash
    -Vera Bradley Appleberry Champagne Perfume
    -Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek
    -Balance Me Radiance Face Mask
    -dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser

    I also noticed 3 of the items are on my wish list? I don’t know if they even look at it, but I thought this was interesting. A great bag though compared to the 5 not so great products last month. 🙂

    • I NEEEEEED that Vera Bradley lotion!!

      • You can have it!! I have the Vera Bradley Appleberry perfume and lotion in my box. On the plus side I’m really interested in the other 5 items in the box…

        -Beauty Protector Protect & Blonde Toning Shampoo
        -Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek (pink)
        -dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser
        -Balance Me Radiance Face Mask
        -Oribe Cote d-Azur Replenishing Body Wash

        7 items – not bad Birchbox! But please no more perfumes or body washes/lotions.

  32. just used “COMEBACK15OFF” for an additional 15% discount (not on any of the sale/30% off items) but it still worked for me – I had about $60 in points, added living proof shampoo & conditioner, & no soap radio body wash… for about $60.50 – had to agree to pay $0.45 …. loving life!! Now, just need to make certain my sub didn’t auto renew as Sept is my/should be last month for BB.

  33. I haven’t seen my variation listed yet, so here it is(!):
    Supergoop Shine-On Lip Screen SPF 50 (excited to receive this, and dupe from curated box)
    Milk Makeup Ubame Mascara (sample pick, and dupe from curated box)
    Klorane Dry Shampoo (will donate, as I don’t use dry shampoo)
    Air Repair Complexion Booster Moisturizer (happy to receive this)
    Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser (excited to receive this)

    Overall, I really like my box as it has a lot of new-to-me products!

    • Box twins!

      Doesn’t the dark tinted dry shampoo seem weird? Even with the oat, it looks sketchy somehow.

      • I think the tinted dry shampoo sounds good in theory, and I’ve actually seen good reviews about it, but I’ll never know how it actually works since I don’t use dry shampoo. I don’t use it because I have no idea how to use it! I’ve seen it demonstrated, and it seems easy, but at the same time, I know me, and I know I’d mess it up. ha, ha! Plus, I wash my hair at least every other day, so I guess I don’t need it.

        • I never used dry shampoo until beauty subs; so I gave them away, but I had a couple on hand, and I decided to try them when I didn’t have time to wash my hair. I have super fine hair so it gets really limp at the roots if I don’t wash daily. I had no idea what I was doing and freaked out when my hair looked chalky white! I learned to rub it in, and it really does perk up the roots, however I hate the way it feels! If I touch my hair I feel the residue and I feel it all over my scalp. I probably used too much. I’d rather wash my hair but now I keep these in mind for things like camping. I think my faves so far are Kloraine and Batiste.

  34. Hmm… Usually I go with the curated box but this one wasn’t doing it for me, so for the first time ever I chose a sample. Unfortunately my page is showing the Milk lip + cheek when I chose the highlighter; I still have the confirmation email so I know I’m not crazy. Has anyone had this problem before? If I actually receive the wrong product in my box, will they make it right, or do they sometimes run out even after sending the confirmation email, and then it’s just tough luck?

    • I chose the Highlighter too and it’s showing the Cheek Lip for me too. I may call tomorrow – not too sure they will change it. I like everything else!?

      • Same thing happened with me, hopefully they will fix it.

    • That once happened to me and I forwarded them the confirmation email and they sent me the product (benefit roller lash) right away. This is when it was first released. I would say email them ASAP so they don’t run out bc I guess that’s always a possibility!

    • A few months ago and bunch of people were having issues like this when using the link to see their reveals. BB customer support said that the link is not 100% accurate as it does not come from them. Their true reveals come up around the 10th of the month. So it should correct online at that time and you should be sent the correct item.

  35. Is it normal to receive 7 products? Lol I have 7 products listed on mine.

    • I’m getting 7 products for the third month in a row. Last month, one of them was a foil packet, but I was still thrilled!

    • There seems to be quite a few of us receiving 6-7 products this month! I have never received more than five. I am considering it a Fall treat. Lol

  36. I’m pretty happy with mine! I’m getting:

    -Bioderma Micellar water – I luuuuurvw micellar waters!!
    -Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse – I could use this if it’s as gentle as they say
    -Milk cheek and lip – my product choice (I haven’t been impressed with this brand so far – and its ratings on Sephora show I’m not alone, but I’ll give this a chance)
    -Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big mascara (I would have been bummed by this, but I’ve been reading good things about this one)
    -R+Co ANALOG Cleansing Foam Conditioner (I’m a little loathe to try cleansing conditioners. We’ll see…)

    • Same box as mine. I’m pretty pleased with everything -except I had chosen the Milk Highlighter Stick and it says I’m getting the Lip/cheek stick.

    • I LOVE that foaming cleansing conditioner! So jealous you got that in your box….maybe next month ?

      • I got it and I’m not sure about it. Swap?

    • I’m really digging your box! If I could chose a box I would chose yours ?

  37. Thank you Birchbox! What a difference a few months make. I feel BB has looked and listened to my beauty needs. I’m receiving six products, three directly pertaining to my skin. I’m thrilled!

    Kiehls Dark spot Solution
    Oribe Replenishing Body Wash
    Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Kit
    Milk Makeup Highlighter
    Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
    Loc Ultra Gloss Lip Pencil

    • Box twins! I’m super excited for the Kiehl’s, the Liz Earle (which I already own a love but yay! new muslin cloth!), and the Oribe body wash.

  38. It does not show the products Im gonna receive and that scares me because that happen last month and my box were never prepared and I don’t receive it because when they try to send me one it was to late and they didn’t have more august products.

  39. OK uall….what’s going on with BB? My box is like….really good???

  40. -Erno Laszlow Detoxifying Bespoke Cleansing Set
    -evo liquid rollers curl balm
    -Milk Makeup highlighter (sample choice)
    -Curly Hair Solutions Leave-In Conditioner
    -TOCCA Florence

    I’m a little disappointed that one of my samples is being wasted on perfume, especially this one, which I think I already have two samples of. But other than that it seems like a pretty good box!

  41. The Avene water sprays are the Best!!!
    I use them when im sick or just need a pick me up. Very refreshing on hot summer days?

  42. Yuck, No thanks Birchbox. Your point system ☆ was☆ the only reason why I kept subscribing. Changed it (to not awarding points to each item reviewed) now what’s the point in even reviewing the samples??? Your boxes were the worst of all the sub boxes I got. Nothing worth noting, not personalized AT ALL. Just itty-bitty crap samples. Don’t waste your money. Go with ipsy, Sephora Play, glossybox or Allure Beauty

    • I review products to help other people know if it’s worth buying or being excited about. I rely on reviews for the same.

  43. Im loving my box:

    Milk mascara-my pick
    The Body Shop drops of youth conc.
    Oribe body wash
    Aromachology totally edible perfume
    Davines momo shampoo
    Davines momo cond.

    • Mine is the same but I also have derma e microdermabrasion scrub. Odd that my sample choice was the lip and cheek product…oh well.

      • I forgot to put im getting derma e scrub!!
        Interesting about our diff picks…

  44. Ooo! Loving my box!!
    – Oribe shampoo/conditioner/glaze for beautiful hair

    – Tocca fragrance in Florance

    – Lis Earle Cleanse and Polish

    – Coola SPF 30 Cucumber moisturizer

    – Milk lip and cheek

    • Ooh, that’s awesome!! 🙂

    • Box twins 🙂 I’m completely excited about my box this month!

    • Box twins! 🙂

  45. Wow! This is my first month trying Birchbox and I could not be happier.
    I picked the Milk Makeup Highlighter, and then I’ll also receive:
    Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
    Davines Naturaltech hair plumper
    Divines Naturaltech shampoo and conditioner
    Dr Brandt pores no more cleanser
    COOLA Mineral Face SPF Matte Tint

    Idk if that’s normal to get so much??
    I’m so excited though!! So ready to try all of it.

    • The shampoo and conditioner will most likely be foil packs.

    • The shampoo is going to be a bottle and the conditioner is a little sample as a bonus item.

    • Bailey, happy for you! It is so much fun. Enjoy!

    • With Davines the conditioner is usually a foil and the shampoo is a regular sample bottle (1.7 oz I think??) The plumper I THINK will be a sample bottle.

      • I wish it was the other way around. With thick, long, dry, curly hair I go through waaaay more conditioner than shampoo.

  46. I’m actually super interested to know- what differences have you noticed since they implemented their changes? Looking from the outside, it seems like they’re offering and publicizing more gwp and sales and discounts, which I actually think is effectively broadening their appeal. Do you feel like the boxes are getting better, or more personalized, or changing in any other way?

    • I am 47 and have dry skin and fine hair listed and have been rating my products. I am receiving a product for acne prone skin and a product for coarse, dry, color-treated hair, which I don’t have at all. A cleansing conditioner, blech!

      • My last month was REALLY opposite my profiles and I reached out and basically got a “it will be better next month” response with absolutely no acknowledgement or addressing of the issue. It totally sealed the deal for me to not re-sub after my year is up.

      • Yup, I’m 56 and also got the acne product. I usually don’t mind a not-perfect match, but this is ridiculous. Everything in my profile shows the exact opposite, and an acne product is such a specific and single-purpose item. I’ll be contacting them.

    • The box is the same, not worst neither better, the points is what gets better because you can use every cent in one time l, I had 225 points and they discount me $22.50. I dont know if we are going to receive points for the reviews of every box but I hope we still can get points in that way.

    • Personally, this month’s box is less personalized. I’m getting canned water when I have oily skin and a hair straightening product when I have straight hair.

      • If you’re interested in swapping for either of those items I’d love to talk!

        • I’m on the MSA app and it’s hard to tell if you meant you’d want to swap with me, but if you do, I would definitely be interested!

    • I haven’t noticed any changes at all in terms of the sub boxes. The supposed customization still seems to not be very personal — within 10 or so replies to this post, I’ve already found a “box twin” receiving the exact same items as I am. And one of the items I’m getting this month is the same one I got in July! Fortunately, I really like it, so I don’t mind, but that doesn’t seem very effective or efficient for a company whose goal is to introduce consumers to new products.

    • I am an annual subscriber, and my sub renewed in June. I love ipsy because I like getting nice make up items, and with BB I rarely got even 1 item of make up. I was getting mostly hair and perfumes that I couldn’t use and teeny samples. I was planning to end my sub after May, but the spring boxes were better, and I spent my points on nice treats that I actually wanted which helped make up for the bad boxes. Of course right after I renewed, BB cancelled the points for reviews. My boxes are hit and miss, but what has helped is that if I like enough of the curated box, I choose that. They usually don’t have perfume. :> I’ve only liked a few of the curated boxes, but I was happy with the ones I did choose. As things stand, I will not be resubbing when this year runs out. Ipsy is still my favorite. I’ve stopped getting BB5. Though they send some fun things, I feel like some of them are just too odd, useless, or questionable (old).

  47. Oooh, this is a great box for me.

    -Evo liquid rollers curl balm
    -Aromachology sophisticated and sensual fragrance
    -Milk lip+cheek color (my choice sample)
    -Curly Hair Solutions leave in conditioner
    -Liz Earle cleanse and polish starter kit

    This month really catered to my curly hair needs and I do like the cleanse and polish. Am looking forward to this box!

  48. Ooh! I actually really like mine! The only product I won’t use is the Milk product I had to choose, lol. I also have a Loc gloss, Bioderma micellar makeup remover, R+Co cleansing conditioner, & the Avene spring water spray (I actually like this for dampening my hair for styling). I did get the Loc lip gloss in my July box & I liked it, so I hope I get a different shade!

    • Box twin! This is the first time that all the products seem really useful. Just have to wait and see how the lip colors look in person. I’ve always wanted to try the Avene and micellar water is terrific. Yay!

      • I agree! Things like the cleansing conditioner & the micellar makeup remover are products I’m interested in trying, but of which I would definitely not buy a full size without trying it first. I found the Loc gloss to be very sheer in color (I got the red Punch Line last time & I’m hoping I might get the purple one), but not actually that glossy.

  49. Mine includes…
    Sample Choice—Milk Makeup Lip+Cheek
    —evo easy tiger straightening balm
    —klorane dry shampoo with oat milk – natural tint – for brunette to dark hair
    —liz earle cleanse and polish hot cloth starter kit
    —avène thermal spring water

    I’m pretty excited about these, ngl. I know I see people complain about getting stuff like the Avène, but I’ve kind of been wanting to try it and this is the first time I’ve gotten any! If it works the way I think, I could see it being something I’d buy being that I live in hot & humid country. Also, I can never have too many frizz fighting hair products and I’m always open to trying dry shampoos, so.

    • I love those Avene spring water sprays – SO refreshing. I hope you love it, too! 🙂

    • Box twins! We are getting the EXACT same products! I wouldn’t normally purchase any of these types of products without trying them so I am very excited.

      • Yay!

    • I LOVE the water sprays. I got a few free for review and couldn’t be happier. I took them to the beach with me and they were lifesaver. Now I just use them to chill.

    • Box twin!

      I’m not sure how I feel about the box… I dont hate anytihng but nothign excites me or makes me happy. The box is just Meh.

      I’m most curious about the cleanser.
