Birchbox Review & Coupon - July

Birchbox is one of the original beauty sampling subscription boxes, and I think it will always be one of my favorites. Sometimes the samples are smaller than I would like, but I’ve discovered a ton of my favorite beauty brands thanks to Birchbox, and they have one of the best reward systems. (For every item in your box you review, you get 10 points ($1) to spend in the Birchbox shop).

Birchbox Review & Coupon - July 2014 Card

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

Birchbox Review & Coupon - July 2014 Suki

Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser – 6 g Value $1.65

LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Bees Knees – .07 oz Value $18? (I’m not sure if this is full size, but it’s labeled the same ounce about as the full size listing on Birchbox).

This Suki sample is tiny – probably good enough for only 1-2 uses – but that’s enough to find out that this is an awesome product. (I’m already a fan and love the fresh lemony scent).

This lip pencil is great too, the shade is subtle (I think I lucked out with the shade – I wouldn’t be able to pull of the purple shades), the finish is matte, and it has a nice minty flavor. (I’m not sure if it’s full sized or deluxe sized, but when it comes to lip and nail polish products, deluxe versions are pretty much the same as full size version to me since I never finish full size version!)

Birchbox Review & Coupon - July 2014 Beauty Protector

Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Mask – 1 oz total Value $6.50

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion – 1 oz Value $3

I’ve liked the other Beauty Protector hair products I’ve sampled, so I’m excited to try this mask. I was surprised to see that the mask is pink though. (I never understand why companies add artificial coloring when it’s unnecessary!)

This Naobay lotion may be my favorite discovery in the box. I love that it’s made with only natural and organic ingredients, and it’s a light lotion with a subtle citrus scent.

Birchbox Review & Coupon - July 2014 Skyn

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels – 1 pair Value $3.75

I’ve tried quite a few eye patch gels, and haven’t really noticed any different in my under-eye-skin after using them, but these have all 5-star reviews on Birchbox, so maybe I’ll try one more pair!

This box also came with a free one year subscription to Women’s Health! I’m all about getting everything in the mail, so I immediately filled out the card. (If you don’t want the magazine, you can also request a $9.99 refund check instead).

Verdict: This was a great Birchbox for me – I’m happy with the sizes of all the samples, and the value is about $40! (I’m including the $10 value of the magazine since you can get a cash refund on it). Plus I’ll review my products and get another $5 in Birchbox points, so that makes the value even better.

What did you think of Birchbox this month?

  1. How this refund works? I send it today, but I don’t have idea, how do I get those $10? Will they send check or what?

    • Yep, I received my check already!

      • Ashley,
        How long ago did you send in your refund request? I only just received my July box a week ago so only sent in my card a few days ago. Was wondering approximately how long between that and receiving the check. Thanks!

        • Hi! I mailed it in 4-5 weeks ago, now!

          • Same here. I got my check yesterday and I mailed the card out a month ago. I was actually surprised to get mine so quickly, seems like those rebates usually take forever. 4-5 weeks is pretty quick.

  2. I cancelled Birchbox last night. My favorite box was my first box. I get shampoo and conditioner basically every month. My box could not possibly add up to ten dollars most of the time. I stayed for there point system. I’m waiting on my last box which looks better then my others though. I’m trying to stay with my favorite can’t live without boxes. I’ve have too many unusable samples floating around the house.

  3. My mom got her first subscription services in the 70-80s there was a few and Club Cosmteique makeup and skin care is still in business. I remember I got my own Cosmteique acct in 1995-96 and got my first box free, didn’t have to give them credit card info. I recieved a bill in the mail for the next month. They came in a box and inside was a gift bag like Victoria Secret with tissue paper. Had them for YeArs until we moved. Looked them up and there still in Business. . Wow


    • Club cosmetique is makeup, skin care, and perfume generally full size.

      Not Necessarily a sampling service full size beauty items but there was a few beauty subs before Birchbox. I always used to wish that I would have my own sub company back before I was even 18. Lol

    • I remember them from the 1990s. I looked at their website recently and they haven’t changed their products since I was in high school…

  4. Got my first box. Was really wanting those eye masks but didn’t get them. I got the Real Chemistry peel, Cynthia Rowley black liner, Naobay body lotion, Supergoop CC cream, and Harvey Prince Imperial Gardenia perfume sample. Never thought I’d see a sample as small as that Supergoop. Didn’t care for the perfume. Hope they don’t send perfume often.

    All in all, just meh for the first box.

    • You might want to change your preferences for the perfume. I don’t mind perfume samples, but I don’t love them and I’ve been with Birchbox for over 3 yrs and it seems this last year I was getting lots of perfume samples. I had 4 or 5 in a row for a few months, so I switched my preferences to no more than 6 a year. Just an FYI, cuz I didn’t like receiving so many perfume samples.

  5. I was very dissatisfied with my box. I recieved the same purple laqa and co lip lube as last month. I recieved the whish shaving cream. The foil body wash. I did not like the items at all. Not worth $10 for tiny samples that do not work for me, poorly rated items too. I did not recieve the choose your sample email last month and this month I made it too late to choose. I’m giving them one more month before I cancel. I have had a missing item and damaged so what horrible luck. The point system is very good though and that’s about it.

    • You got a great box Liz! 🙂
      I would have loved the peach laqa and co lip lube and I’ve tried the suki, it’s great! All of your items look fantastic! My box was poor in comparison.

    • Did you receive the exact same Laqa & Co. lip lube (same color) last month? If so, I’d contact Birchbox and complain, and maybe they’ll send you a replacement and/or points. Their customer service has generally seemed good (not counting the whole item selection debacle).

  6. Posting this here too; in case anyone is interested. My steal of the day! I fell in love with Harvey Prince Hello through Birchbox. Regular price for the largest Harvey Prince Hello Perfume $55, Hello lotion $26, Hello shower gel $26 ~ total $107. The 3 piece package on sale at for $80. 50% off using code OBSESSED is $40 plus $6.50 shipping. When all was said & doneb $46.50:delivered for all three! The code is good for half of all orders $80 or above.

  7. My box arrived today because being new to the subscription the June and July box were spaced out. I received the Suki cleanser in the June box.

    1. Cynthia Rowley Beauty Black Eyeliner
    2. Harvey Prince Singular Scentsations Imperial Gardenia
    3. Naobay Body Radiance Lotion – can’t wait to try this
    4. Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel – Supposed to be good for rosacea.
    5. Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+

  8. Wow this may be the first box out of any subscription I’ve received where I plan to keep and use every item! I’m really happy with the items they chose for me, I can’t wait to try them. I am going to use the subscription although getting $9.99 cash back from my $10 investment was tempting!

  9. My box is different…only the suki is the same. I like everything, but am surprised how tiny all the samples are. I’ve been with BB a long time and this is the smallest group of products I’ve ever received.

  10. Just got mine today and forgotten that my battery charger was supposed to be with it until I went online and saw they had given me an extra 100 points because its been delayed

  11. I received an email the same day my box arrived letting me know that my Cynthia Rowley Lip Stain was not included in my July box but will come to me shortly. Today I found my lip stain in my mailbox. BB really does make good on their promises!

    • I’ll believe that when I see it. I had to e-mail them when I didn’t get the confirmed lip stain. Two days of e-mails (they responded without giving any info. each time except that I’d hear “official word” soon) and finally they told me I should have received “official word” when I never got any messages from them other than uninformative replies from their CS. I’ve had my box for well over a week at this point and no lip stain and no tracking e-mails regarding any substitution and certainly nothing else in the mail.

      • Sent another complaint e-mail and got a tracking number for the replacement product in response (reply was in less than an hour). So that’s good, at least.

  12. Just to let everyone know. I received my BB with my Harvey prince body cream exploded. I contacted CS and let them know that and the fact that I never got to choose my product even though I clicked the email right after it was sent. They responded quickly saying they will replace my exploded item and send me a creamy lip stain by Cynthia Rowley since I wasn’t able to choose. Their CS really goes above and beyond, especially compared to the ipsy debacle last month

    • When I emailed them saying I picked a lip stain but didn’t receive it all they said was it was their first try doing this and sorry I missed out! How rude that they are sending you one and not everyone who thought they selected one

      • Amanda. Don’t feel bad. I went back and forth with a cs about it. She had received my first of two complaints. I had sent another when I realized for the third time I was once again getting a Supergoop (3/5 boxes is a tad extreme- I guess because I’m fair). Anyway, the second lady I don’t know of she responded before or after I hit the button to rate my support. But I finally was comped next months box (I wanted the ambrosia ruffian- but would have been happy either way). Then I ended up getting the do poetry wrong box. It had blue liner (I’m green eyed ) and it had the darkest shade of tinted moisturizer I was peeved! It was sloppy this month.

        But that First Lady I spoke to said the same thing, I’m like why can’t u just send me he ruffian polish?? Didn’t make sense. Oh well I am trading for it and bout the other.

  13. Liz: Just got an email – birchbox has a : Our Exclusive Women’s Health Box – SPECIAL IN-BOX OFFER: GET A ONE-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION TO WOMEN’S HEALTH (A $9.99 VALUE) – It’s great to have a friend who urges you onward—whether it’s to speed up in spin class or to swipe on a bold lip. That’s why we’ve partnered with Women’s Health for July’s “Power Up” box, packed with products and tips to supercharge your style, optimize workouts, and more. Plus, get a full year of Women’s Health when you Subscribe—just look for more info in your July box.

  14. I was really happy with my July Birchbox, which was surprising to me because I was so disappointed with my June box. I got soft curl gel, citrus scented lotion, a face exfoliant, pink lip stain, and shaving gel. With the mail in refund anything is bonus, but considering I really liked the lip stain and lotion, I am really happy.

  15. I just got my box today, and I received: Supergoop Eye Cream, Black Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner (going up for swap), Naobay Organic Body Radiance Lotion, No. 4 Leave-In Conditioner, and Smarty Pants Vitamin Gummies! Plus, I am getting the $9.99 back instead of the magazine subscription! So happy with my box! 🙂

    • I received the same box as you. I was impressed as this was my first box. Now I’m already excited to get next months box!!

  16. I just received my Birchbox today and I mostly like what I got.

    Vasanti Detox Facial Cleanser
    Sumita Raina Contrast Eye Pencil (I am guessing in black)
    Naobay Body Radiance Lotion
    2 foil packet body wash
    Klorane Dry Shampoo.

    Not a bad box – I am pretty happy with it and love the Klorane Dry Shampoo.

    • We got the exact same box! My eyeliner is navy. The packaging made it look black till I swatched it. I like the scent of the lotion, but haven’t really tried the other items out yet.

  17. I finally got my Birchbox today, it was a little delayed this month for some reason. I was wondering how do you get the rebate? It says to mail the card back with your original Birchbox subscription order confirmation. Am I being really dense, or are they talking about the original email when I signed up for Birchbox two years ago? It’s been a monthly recurring payment since then.

    • Thank goodness I am not alone. I am not sure what is meant by the original box order confirmation. Do they want me to print off the email that says that my box this month has shipped? Or what?

    • I’m confused about that, as well. I hope someone knows what it means!

      • I am going to call them and will let you all know soon!

        • hope this helps girls…there is a box to check on the card that says “no thanks, send refund” and you just fill out your address info.

          • yes, BE SURE TO CHECK THE BOX!! the fine-print says that if no box is checked, they will send you the subscription instead of the refund!

      • okay gals… login to your account and go to Account Settings… then scroll down to Purchase History & click on View All… this will open your Order History… click on your most recent subscription for the woman’s box… right click on the screen that opens, and click Print… that will open the print dialog box… print it, fill out the magazine card for the refund, and mail them both to the address on the bottom of the card! hope this helps 🙂

        • When I do that it doesn’t show any boxes other than my first one it only shows things I’ve actually ordered not the monthly boxes so I’m confused

          • Hey! That’s the right thig. That’s your initial order. It is a rolling subscription so, that’s the number it’s looking for. U would only see it change maybe if you cancelled and rest scribed that would generate a new order number.

  18. It’s odd to me that your products have the label wearing off of them. Little sketchy…

  19. I am really disappointed! I was excited when I saw the BB promo through this site. Then I tried to go to their website and pick a sample and realized they probably emailed people and I would get 1. I never did. I thought maybe I just missed something and now I see that some did and some didn’t. This doesn’t make me want to stick with BB. I may cancel this and try something else! And still no July BB, by the way!!

    • contact CS ASAP, they will send you a replacement option if you want, since you couldn’t choose! they did this for me since I wasn’t able to choose either :))

      • I completely forgot I never received my email letting me choose my product, thanks for the reminder. I kept waiting for that email too 🙁

  20. Hmmm… I did not get my box though the tracking says it was delivered 4 days ago! This has NEVER happened w/ any packages before (& I am an amazon junkie). I wonder if it was stolen?

    • Scratch that – it came today! I have no idea why tracking said 4 days ago… but it came, so yay! 🙂

      I got:
      Cynthia Rowley lip stain in Valentine-(I wanted the paler but it was sold out before I got there, I’m still happy to get lip stain over nail polish…)
      Hello Body Cream
      Whish Shaving Cream
      Marcella 8 in 1 serum
      Gingerade shower get foil packs

      So… nothing that you got Liz but I’ll use most of it.

  21. I got the Suki exfoliator in my box last month, and a small amount does go a long way! Use about the amount of your ring finger nail and you’ll get more than 1-2 uses out of it. I thought the same thing when I received mine!

    • I got it last month too. I have got about 5 uses out of mine, and I still have enough for a couple more. It’s such a good product!

  22. I am pretty new to all of this and I was just wondering how do I request the refund for the Mag Subscription?

    • On the card for the free magazine subscription at the very bottom there are details on how to get your $9.99 refund. Hope that helps!

      • Hi Liz,
        It’s good to know I am not the only one confused by the birch box refund lingo. Do you know if its our box confirmation number for July( I am assuming, yes) or our yearly confirmation number?
        Thank you!

  23. As usual, Birchbox underdid (made up word) itself again. Stinky perfume, tiniest Supergoop in unusable color, and I don’t like the feel or scent of the Naobay. The Rowley liner is okay and the peel might be also. At least I didn’t get shampoo again. The only reason I got one this month was because it was free through Ibotta. I’ll cancel as soon as I can review my items.

  24. Incorrect info being given out here, ladies.

    IF a person wants to use Liz’s nice codes and get 100 free points and a July Birchbox, they certainly still can. I signed up for my third box yesterday and her code ( Birchbox’s code) works just fine.

    Usually, the boxes for a certain month are available through the first week of the next month, BUT, the 100 extra points is most likely a limited time offer. There’s where the value is.
    100 points equals $10 and $10 is the COST of the Birchbox. Shipping is free. Add in the magazine or magazine refund, and you have doubled your savings. AND have a very good chance of getting a GREAT Birchbox. 🙂

    • Did you have to use the WOMENSHEALTH100 on a different account? I’m already a subscriber (obviously) but I can’t gift it to myself to use it. So how in the world do I use it? Any help would be appreciated!

      • cancel your account and then immediately resign up on your account page with the code. that worked for me. hope that helps!

  25. Loved what you got!! I got mine too but I got

    Whish Shaving Cream
    Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel
    Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
    Coastal Scents® Revealed 2 Palette Sample (4 colors)
    100% Pure Gingerade Shower Gel (Honey Cream Wash)

    My Favorite Birchbox so far!!!

    • I doubt that I’ll get Liz’s box because I just got the lip lube in the most hideous purple color ever last month. Your box looks a lot more promising.

  26. My mother in laws box was shipped to me and its the same as Liz’s. I am so jealous! I am looking to recreate this sub for my own profile. Anyone have any tips on what they chose in their profile to get Liz’s box ?
    I received Harvey Prince hello body lotion. I really like it great combo of citrus and floral a dash powdery and really clean. A great moisturizer for those ugly commutes in August. Juice Beauty stem cell repair, i have gotten this before in other subs. It’s ok, I think the $75 price tag isn’t justified for the product itself. The Vasanti cosmetics cleanser, I keep getting this brand and its simply too harsh on my dry skin. I will be using this as a foot scrub with my Mia plus. The only full size product I got was the Ofra Universal eyebrow pencil, which of ourselves if you have blonde or red hair like I do, this isn’t universal at all. I still tried the pencil, it’s a nice bronzey brown wax, great color, but it really smeared and it was only 75 degrees yesterday. This pencil should not be used in high heat or a humid summer. The search for a great universal brow product continues. Anyone have a great brow product or light hair?
    Keep the great reviews coming Liz! On another note didn’t anyone ever receive the Kate Spade necklace? Birch box just issued me a credit as they ran out if product.

    • I got the ‘Universal’ eye brow pencil also, and just left a review that universal is not true. I think Birch Box should know by now that there really is no such thing as a universal product. This pencil was DARK and not suited for lighter people.

    • I love Anastasia Brow Wiz. I do the Medium Brown color. I have blonde hair but darker eyebrows and I match my pencil to my eyebrows. I’m in the South and it holds up very well with our heat and humidity.

  27. Just received my BB this morning and finally got around to opening it up…lol. When I got the e-mail from BB to pick my sample it was having issues and then by the time it was fixed all samples were sold out. So seeing the ruffian nail polish in my box was a shock (and it did leak onto other products) but the color is nice.
    Overall I received 6 samples this month and the womens health magazine (which I will be getting a refund since I already received this free from bulu) Dr. brandt pores no more, LAQA & co lip tube in purple, number 4 super comb prep & protect, Real Chemistry 3-minute peel, and Ruffian polish and a pack of acetone-free towelettes.
    This is my 3 rd box and I always think that I am going to cancel but I can not give up the points. This month was the best BB I have received.

  28. I think this is my last month with Birchbox. I am just never all that excited by the samples I get (and I have tried changing my quiz answers).

    Plus, I never got the e-mail about choosing a sample. So I e-mailed their customer service, they put me on the list for the one I wanted and said “you’re all set.” Then I got a box without the sample I chose. I went back and forth with them for two days with them promising me I’d receive “official word” soon. Never got it (even though their CS told me I had…).

    Anyway, I gather I’ll be getting the selected sample separately, from what I’ve read elsewhere online. But I cashed out my points on stuff in the shop and this is probably it for me. I think I’ll keep Julep and cancel Birchbox (had been planning to cancel Julep because I had only signed up with a really good promo code, but it turns out I like them a lot).

    • I also had a huge issue with my “choose your own sample” this month. Had originally picked the Ruffian Ambrosia shade, then got the email stating to choose again, went back chose the Ruffian, but they had an option for them to surprise me (thinking this meant surprise me with the SHADE). Anyway, I spoke with one cs after I had seen I wasn’t getting either the ruffian or cr gloss I had sent an email) then after seeing I was getting my 3/5 boxes wi Supergoop I was rather ticked. The first email I had sent had sent me to a Meghan who could careless about my disappointment and was pretty much oh well there’s no way to do anything about it.

      The second rep was much nicer about it and comped my August box for me. I don’t normally pitch such a fit, but after posting how excellent Birchbox support staff was and logging on FB, ig, and twitter to tell everyone to go choose their sampkes I was more than a bit upset when this chick wasn’t even caring that I had missed out and been looking forward all month to my Ruffian polish. Luckily I’ve found someone willing to exchange with me.

      Morale of the story: try,try again.

  29. Well except for the Naobay lotion mine was different and contained Marcelle 8 in 1 serum, Klorane dry shampoo, Cynthia Rowley lip stain, and gingerade shower gel along with the Women’s Health subscription.

    • That’s what I got as well. Already traded the dry shampoo. Liked the naobay lotion and lip Stain

    • I received the same. Not one of my favorite boxes (I found the shower gel to be useless and have no reason to use dry shampoo, nor do I need the magazine sub, and I’m not super happy with the smell of the lotion) but overall, I really enjoy getting Birchbox so no real complaints.

  30. Inhavemt received money et I usually get them on the 10th though but I’m getting the naobay lotion beauty protector mask the three minute hand peel ( which I saw on the video that I really wanted) the ruffian polish in the silver tone ( I wanted lipstain but it was gone when I got the email that said they had the page fixed but I like the ruffian formula from the modern mermaid box) the ruffian nail polish remover towelettes and the benefit posiebalm and I’ve been really wanting to try the benefit line so I think I’ll be pretty happy this month and I’ll get the refund on the magazine too since I won’t read it

    • I haven’t received mine yet* stupid auto correct

    • Oh, u got the really fab box. So super envious now.

  31. Did you choose not to receive either the lip stain or one of the Ruffian polishes? As I am sure you know, we received emails asking which product we wanted, and I see that you have neither.

    I received two BBs ( one is here, as it was sent UPS and the other is still shipping) and in one I received the Ruffian Ambrosia nail polish ( a lavender shade) and in the other I received the Benefit Posiebalm lip balm.

    The box which was free is a great box, and I will use every product in it. The other box is mostly foil packets which I refuse to even open as they are a waste of my time.

    My box which is already here has the 2 hair mask jar samples from Beauty Protector, the Naobay Body Lotion, Real Chemistry’s Luminous 3 Minute Peel and the Skyn Iceland Eye gel patches.

    All in all, it’s probably the best Birchbox I’ve ever gotten. I will use all the samples and there are no foil packets.

    The other box, which should contain the Ruffian polish I picked out, but people are saying that it is missing from most boxes and Birchbox says they will ship the bonus item out separately. ( this remains to be seen).
    This box shows on the website as containing the Whish shaving cream, which I will not use because shower gel works fine, the Coastal Scents Revealed palette swatch which I will not use, a foil packet of Caudelie Divine facial oil which I will not use, a small tube of St. Tropez facial self tanner which I will not use as I do not use self- tanners, and a couple of foil packets of Ruffiian nail polish remover which I will put in my deluxe sized P.A.K. emergency essentials kit. It is a bit larger and better designed and filled than the Pinch kit we got in a Pop Sugar MH box and a few more nail polish remover packets will be nice to add. But I would not use them at home, as I prefer the old bottle of remover and cotton facial rounds to remove my polish.

    One box is a total box of WIN, the other is a total box of ” dump it”except for the polish, which I and others may or may not receive.
    I did use the Women’s Health code and subbed to a third BB. It remains to be seen what shows up in the third box. Ha.
    I love Birchbox and after just 2 months of subscribing with them, have accumulated enough points to purchase $80 worth of products from the online store. I’ll probably wait until I have a $100 order, and buy the Clarisonic Pedi unit. I love my facial Clarisonic cleansing brush and think the foot care system will be great. It’s $200 which is in line with the facial system I have.

    • Hi Amanda,

      Do you have more than one BB account is that how you get more than one box?

      • Yes, that’s how you get multiple boxes. I once had three but started having too much overlap and dropped back to one.

        • Hey Erin,

          That’s what I did last month. Two boxes were identical so I changed the profile for all them.
          I was just curious how she earned $80 in two months. Since points on multiple accounts can’t be combined 🙁 I wish they could

          • What you do is use points to buy $10 gift cards. Then you can use all the $10 gift cards on the same account.

          • Hey Sneaky Buritto!

            Thanks that’s a awesome idea. You’ve just made my day 🙂 thank you!

          • I earned $80 in points because I purchased a full sized fragrance from the BB shop and the limited edition Modern Mermaid box.
            We get points based upon the prices of those items. Plus I had a total of 14 items to review on one subscription in one week ( 8 items sent in June box and 6 in July’s box).
            That’s 140 points for a few minutes of answering questions.

            Always review your products for the points. 🙂

          • Thanks Sneaky Burrito too!!

          • Hi Sneaky Burrito,

            How do you purchase gift card with your points? I just tried but it didn’t give me the option of paying for them with my points 🙁

          • They apparently recently disabled this feature (i.e., buying gift cards with points) a week or two after I posted my comment. There was some discussion on one of the Birchbox threads at about this. Made quite a few people who had been saving up points and using multiple accounts angry, from what I’ve seen.

          • We’ll that sucks. I guess I’ll be canceling two of my accounts after I use up my points. Sucks cause each one has about 40$ that I was goin to use towards the pedi device . No point in
            Having multiple accounts now.

      • I actually got a free box. I signed up for my second subscription in early JULY, but they sent me a JUNE box in JULY.

        I called, was very nice but asked for a current month’s box as I don’t do leftovers, and this really nice CS guy said he was sending a great box to me next day UPS. Sure enough, I got a fab box the next day. via UPS.
        It’s the best Birchbox I’ve ever gotten, and my purchasing history with Birchbox goes back to 2011.

    • Hi Amanda,

      I ran into a claisonic rep who let in on a little secret. The pedi bushes are interchangeable with Mia plus. I bought the pedi brush a few days ago and used it. It works like a charm. The ped system has a higher revolution –so the Mia isn’t as strong.

      • That’s great to know, but I have a large Clarisonic Plus, not a Mia.
        I don’t think the Pedi system will fit, do you? 🙂

  32. Wow! I didn’t know that you could get a refund on the magazine! I received the same exact box as you. I love the scrub, and got four uses out of it. It’s kind of a pain to get out of the container so I’m thankful for my long nails that I was going to cut!

    • Typically, the current month’s box is available for shipping to new members throughout the current calendar month. You should get a July box ( one of 67 variants, remember) for $10, plus get 100 points plus either the magazine or the refund if you decline the subscription.

  33. WOW!! That is a great box! Is it still avail?

    • If you sign up now, you’ll get next month’s box. Also, not everyone gets the same box, so the items shown in this review vary.

      • thanks for clarifying

        • Whenever I signed up I got the box of the month I signed up for in. I have 3 accounts I signed up late last month and got Junes box. If you sign up now you should still get one of Julys boxes!
