  1. Birchbox is the worst, and they’d do well to learn they’re losing subscribers right and left. I gave them so many chances, but I finally canceled recently and thank God that I did. Everything since has been vomit city.

  2. I love beauty products and was hoping to receive the items from the spoiler but was greatly disappointed. Last months box was a joke and I even informed them that sending me a tiny hair tie when I specified I am interested in beauty products is ridiculous. This month I received two bags of tea, a subscription to women’s health (which I don’t want), and those foil samples of shampoo and conditioner. I did receive body gel and a tiny itty bitty eye cream but that’s it!

    I think they send bloggers the better boxes because I never receive large or decent sized samples. I mean tea???? Really?

  3. I just got my box for April today and I am SO upset. Everything was an absurdly small sample, and the one thing that was full sized didn’t even make it into my box! It was just the cap for a lip pencil….

    I honestly do not think they pay any attention to the profiles of their customers, because there is no logical reason behind sending a 17 year old girl with healthy skin and hair only products made for reducing age/revitalizing/freshening. Seriously I am so bummed.

    You really blew it birchbox

  4. Just canceled birchbox. Only got one month and thought it was a waste compared to glossybox. I am also subscribed to ipsy so we will see which is Better

  5. Thanks for posting the spoiler! I just discovered the subscription box world and signed up for ipsy. April will be my first month. I keep wanting to like birchbox but people just seem to dislike it more and more. I think they advertise as a makeup box and April is all hair and skin care. Gah I’m looking for another makeup subscription box that is good for a college girl’s budget. What do you recommend that you get the most for your value and is mainly make up? Thanks!

    • I’m a big fan of Birchbox – but I know it’s not for everyone! If you are looking for makeup only boxes I would recommend Starbox ($15 a month for full sized makeup). GLOSSYBOX also usually has at least a few makeup items in each box and they are typically deluxe or full sized.

      Hope that helps! Let me know what you pick!


      • Have you heard anything about lip factory inc.’s box?
