Reminder – Last Day to Review Your Birchbox Samples!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Review Your Birchbox Samples!

FYI – Today is the last day to review your August Birchbox samples and earn Birchbox points!

If you aren’t familiar with Birchbox points, each month you get 10 points per sample when you review them. 10 points = $1, so if you review 5 samples each month for a year subscription, you’ll have $60 to spend in the Birchbox shop! ($5 X 12 months)

Here is a step-by-step break down of how to review samples:

Birchbox Points Tutorial

Under “Box” in the top navigation, click on Women’s Box. (Or Men’s if you subscribe to the Men’s box).

When you click “Women’s Box” you will be taken to a page that shows your most recent box/samples:

Birchbox Tutorial

You’ll want to review each one, and you review them one at a time. First I’ll review the Acure Facial Cleasner. I click the product image to get to the product detail page:

Write A Review

From here click “Write a Review”

Review Product


You’ll answer about 10 multiple choice questions. At the end of the page there’s an option to add a public product review:

Optional Info

You can do this if you want, but it is optional.  Click submit – and you’ll see this page:

And You're Done!


Repeat these steps with your other samples. It is a pretty easy 5 bucks!

  1. Thank you so much for the tutorial on how to review! September was my 3rd box and the 1st one I was able to review correctly. It’s pretty simple now that I know how!

    Thanks Liz for the Awesome job you do with this site!

  2. Thank you so much for the reminder! I forgot there was a deadline and I was not aware it was by the 9th. I certainly don’t want to lose those points! 🙂

  3. Ah, you’re awesome, thank you!!! Just locked in 50 more points that I wouldn’t have gotten if I hadn’t checked your email blast. 🙂

    I commented on the Ipsy review last month about the Urban Decay Subversion mascara primer. Have you gotten the chance to try it? <3

  4. Thanks for the reminder — I discovered last month that I had waited too long for June.

    1 thing – at the top I think you mean $6 or 60 points. (Not $60. Though that would be awesome….)

    • Oh, I meant $60 over a year. I’ll update that to make it clearer. Thanks!

  5. I could not find where to review my August box so I emailed customer service and they asked me to send my review VIA EMAIL- to write a line or two about each product and then they issued me points. That was a pain, but I did it.

  6. Thanks! This was my first box, and I knew we could do reviews, but I hadn’t gone in and figured out how.

  7. Liz, thank you so much for posting this. This is extremely helpful!

  8. did they impose a time limit for reviews recently? In feb. I realized I hadn’t reviewed my past two boxes and was able to no problem.

    • I’m not sure, but I just tried to review a sample from my July box and wasn’t able to do so for points.

    • You can always post reviews on sample and non sample products. But you only get points when you review by the 9th of the month following your box.
