The Cost: $10 a month (free month with an annual subscription)

The Products: Beauty and lifestyle samples.

I was so excited to see a dairy-free, gluten-free dessert in my Birchbox that I immediately devoured these Macaroons! (This picture is just of the package!)

I’m so excited to try this color changing polish. Let me know if you’ve tried it – I’m curious if it really works!

Supergoop Eye Cream – 2 mL Value $6

Malin + Goetz Vitamin b5 Body Moisturizer – 1 oz Value $5

This Supergoop eye cream made me realize I usually don’t think about the eye-area when putting on sunscreen – thanks for the reminder Birchbox!


Verdict: Even if I don’t count the value of the magazine subscription, this box is worth double what I paid, and I’m happy with all the products. What was your favorite product in the April Birchbox?

  1. I just signed up for birchbox! Can’t wait to get my first box 🙂

  2. So everyone’s box is not the same??? I got only a tiny 2 piece sample of the macaroons, no nail polish or magazine subscription, no Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir??? And I got Cilantro shampoo instead of the Malin + Goetz Vitamin b5 Body Moisturizer??? Is that normal to get different stuff? I’m so sad your box is WAY better!!!

    • Usually there are about 20-30 variations of each box – that’s why I have two subscriptions! 🙂


  3. lucky u receiving the nail polish, but a mini, geez. ur box was better than mine 4 sure

  4. I tried the nail polish and it really works! The quality of the polish isn’t great(I had to put on 4 coats) but it is definitely fun!

  5. Mmmmm, I LOVE those macaroons. I was lucky enough to get a full bag in a limited Conscious Box.

  6. If that subscription notice is like the one in the Woman’s Health Birchbox, you can get a $9.99 refund instead of the magazine subscription, making your box this month free! Check the small print at the bottom.

  7. Do you always get different items in each box? I like Birchbox too. It was my first box 🙂 For the cost I might do a second one too.

    • There were two months when I got the same box on both subscriptions – but otherwise I’ve always received different items. Hope that helps!


      • Thanks Liz!!
