Use this link to see what you’ll get from Birchbox this month. (FYI – the reveal worked for one of my subscriptions, but didn’t load for a different subscription account, so you may need to try back later if it isn’t working for you).

  1. I enjoy receiving Birchbox and while I may not like every item I receive I certainly receive enough to my liking to be satisfied. My Birchbox items have gotten better over the past few months, and I hope this continues.

  2. Just received my April box, and I am seriously thinking of canceling. For the second time in 3 months, there has been a problem with my box. In January, the deodorant wipes were outdated by a lot; was told that they would send replacements but they never did. In the box I received today, there is supposed to be Acure Organics Lip Lush – No Strings. Nope. I knew nothing about ‘points’ until reading posts on this blog, but I’m thinking that’s a ‘perk’ that isn’t worth it to me. Time will tell if they respond honestly to my email to them tonight.

    • Hi Sonja,

      I’ve always had such a good experience with Birchbox CS. If you never got the promised replacement, I would just reach out to them again. As a company, they seem very invested in making sure you’re happy with the outcome of any interaction with them. Like any growing business, they’re prone to mistakes, but they really shine in making up for them. Also if you decide to stick with it, check out the points! It’s super easy to do the reviews (if you get the app for your phone it’s even easier) and they add up quick so you can get some nice stuff from their shop (or spend it all on LE boxes like I do)

      • Oops, not sure why that replied to your comment! This was supposed to be a fresh one, sorry!

  3. I wonder why these links never upload my new box? I can only see my box when it unlocks on the 10th. :*( Why oh why!

  4. I’m super excited for my box this month. It says I’m getting 6 items… Hoping it doesn’t change.

    • PBJ Smoothie Stick
    • Makeup remover wipes (sample choice)
    • Malin+Goetz grapefruit face cleanser
    • Malin+Goetz face moisturizer
    • amika un-done texture spray
    • Benefit Dew la Hoola Matte Liquid Bronzer

    • Same! Looks like a great box. 😀

  5. It says I am getting 7 things? I am hoping that’s the truth!

    • I’m getting 7 too…but because 3 are foil packets for Davins Ol shampoo and conditioner. Oh well, at least I’ll get more points.

      • The 3rd item (the milk) from Davins is almost 2 oz; only 2 are foils 🙂

  6. I am getting:
    English Laundry Eau de Parfum Signature for Her

    The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick

    Dr. Jart+ Liftra™ Contour Cream

    Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio Set
    Davines OI

    And a Davines tri (all in one milk, shampoo and conditioner)

    • We are box twins! I really hope it is 7 products and not a glitch!

  7. I did not choose a sample, so here’s what they’re sending me:
    – Burts Bees tinted lip balm
    – Naobay HydraPlus Cream
    – Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio Set
    – rms beauty™ the ultimate makeup remover wipes
    – amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner

    I’ve never heard of dry conditioner but it seems to have pretty good reviews so I’ll keep an open mind. Wish I was getting the Marcelle Micellar instead of the wipes but overall seems like a decent box.

  8. I am in love with my box this month! I am getting:

    -derme e purifying 2 in 1 charcoal mask
    -Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
    -Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio Set ( my pick)
    -Marcelle 3 in 1 Micellar Solution
    -Amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner

    • That’s exactly what I’m getting!

  9. Looking forward to this month’s box:
    My Daughter Fragrances Bloom 23
    The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick
    Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
    REN Keep Young and Beautiful™ Instant Firming Beauty Shot
    Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution

    • We have the same box except I have the English Laundry Notting Hill perfume ? guess I’m getting in my quota now?

      Seems like people are excited about the PBJ Smoothie Stick. I want to be but I’m on the fence. BB has never sent me a color that has matched up with me so if this doesn’t it goes to one of my friends who is always happy to get a sample from me.

      • I read the reviews for the PB & J lip color and everyone said it goes on very sheer and it’s not heavily pigmented so I’m really excited about it!

    • We are box twins!

    • Sooo, got my box today. The perfume is the cheapest sample I’ve ever received. It was a 2/3 full vial that was difficult to open. The scent was flowery/powdery (i.e. old lady), the PBJ is okay but not as sheer as described, it was very matte and a deep shade of pink but full-size! The Marcelle Micellar solution is a nice size, happy to have 2 from this box and the curated box. Briogeo is a decent sample size as is the REN.

    • Same box!

  10. Does anyone else not have a reveal up yet?? I’m an ACE and have been checking incessantly but can’t see anything for April ?. This is the first time in months I haven’t gone with the curated box and I’m so impatient!

    • I can’t see my April box either and am an Ace. Anybody know why some people can see theirs and others can’t?

        • I couldn’t see my box until I clicked that link, and I was eager to see and kept checking….to no avail lol,,,,,,as this is my very first birchbox, so THANK YOU for posting that!!

          If that link is really my box, it looks like I am getting
          Amika touchable hair spray
          Tocca hand cream
          Derma e purifying 2 in1 charcoal mask
          Beauty crop pbj smoothie stick
          RMS makeup remover wipes

          I am excited to try everything. I hope the smoothie stick isn’t too bright, I am a low maintenance natural profile…..

          • Ok, I just clicked the link on the spoilers page, to see my box, and it gives me a list of different things. So, which is it? Lol guess it will be a surprise after all!

      • I can’t see mine unless I click the link above. Not sure what’s special about the link. I’m also getting the curated box.

    • I can never see the box reveals until the 10th of the month, every month. And I’m an Ace also

    • that link seems to work really well I bookmarked it and each month you just change the month ( so for example in may you will change the 4 to a 5 ) I’m an ace and this month it worked fast, some months it takes a extra day or two.

      • I tried both your link and the one that Hailey posted and came up with two different sets of products. Not sure which is correct, but it is good information to have as I am not very patient in waiting for sneak peeks or reveals. Thanks for the information.

  11. I’m getting Pop Matte Velvet Lipstick, RMS Wipes (my choice), Parlor by Jeff Chastain Volumizing Lifting Spray, Living Proof Dry Shampoo, Benefit The Porefessional. I’ve tried all of these except the first two so I have no idea why BB is sending me 3 repeats. 🙁

    • They have good customer service; I’ll bet if you tell them that you’ve been sent those items before on your account, they’ll do something to make up for it.

  12. I’m getting Naobay Mattifying Cream, Burts bees tinted balm, Briogeo repair mask, Tocca Florence perfume, and Costal Scents eye palate. Overall I’m happy though I am now seeing what the others have been saying about the perfume samples.

    • I normally hate the perfume samples, but I’m dying for Birchbox to send me that Florence sample. It’s so good!

      • You can get free perfume samples in any Sephora, including the Tocca scents. But it wouldn’t come in that cute little paper pamphlet with the Tocca logo.

    • Box twinning! I’m super excited about the Burts Bees and crossing my fingers (even though it is totally a big big big long shot) that the Tocca sample is a roll on or bigger than the throw-away tiny samples.

    • Box twins!

      I typically don’t care for perfume samples either, but am excited to try the Tocca Florence.

  13. This month’s boxes all seem great! I’m getting the PB&J, Davines OI trio, Au Naturale trio (I chose that), Juliette Has a Gun Anyway (I loved Juliette Has a Gun, so I’m actually excited about this one), and Aquareveal Satin Bright Soft Water Peel. I almost cancelled this month, but I’m glad I didn’t!

  14. I feel like I’m crazy. Every time I don’t purchase the curated box, I inevitably get perfume, which it says I do not prefer and shampoo and conditioner. Every single time. I’ve done two uncurated boxes this year and both times I’ve gotten perfume. It’s like, why bother having preferences at all if they have no intention of listening. I even got a spray for thick hair when it clearly says my hair is fine. If it weren’t for the points system in the shop, I’d cancel.

    • Meanwhile, I enjoy perfume samples and I put it in my profile. Every time I get the sample box, guess what I don’t get? perfume samples! not a one! gah.

    • P.S. The beaver shampoo and conditioner have sulfates and parabens in them. I color my hair (says so in my profile), so those samples will not get used either. I don’t think they’re listening to people’s preferences anymore. Must be nice to get so big as a company that you don’t have to consider the customer. 🙁

      • I’ve had Birchbox for a few years, in all fairness I don’t think they’ve ever listen to a customer’s preferences.

        • Haha! Yes, very true.

    • I definitely agree, I have given up on the uncurated box (I am also not a fan of perfume samples and I think I got one every month I didn’t get the curated box). I have only been getting the months with a curated box I’m interested in.

    • I don’t know what I have in my preferences that dictates that every time I do not get the curated box I get the same Beaver shampoo and conditioner. I am going to try and switch my entire profile to see if I get anything different. I love Birchbox but lately it has been so disappointing with all of the dry shampoo and etc that I receive that I can never use on my superfine straight hair. 🙁 Liz’s always looks awesome for me, I wonder what is in her profile preferences? 🙂

    • The only option you have in your profile regarding perfume is to receive no more than 6 a year and believe me, they will send all six.

    • They are a little sneaky with the Perfume samples thing. If you look back over your style profile you will notice that the only answers you can give for the “How often do you want to receive fragrance samples” question are “Anytime” or “No more than 6 times a year.” Since I usually pick curated boxes each month, and since I rarely see perfume samples in curated boxes so far, this leads me to assume that every sample choice box I get is probably going to have a perfume in it (Since I probably pick the sample choice less than 6 times a year.) It would be nice if they gave us an option to opt out entirely, not everyone can wear perfume/needs to find a new scent.

  15. Oooh! I didn’t choose a sample this month, and I am getting the PB&J stick, the RMS wipes, Malin+Goetz grapefruit cleanser and vitamin e moisturizer, Amika texture spray, and Dew the Hoola. Six samples AND some fun new products!? Maybe I should skip sample choice more often. 😉

    • Beth, that box you’re getting sounds amazing! I did curated this month and I’m bummed about it. I love the surprise of the non curated. And it looks like everyone is getting great stuff this month!

      • That curated box is sooo good though. I feel that that combo of awesome brands and decently-sized products would never happen in a non-curated box. Worst case scenario, you could also create a second account and get referral points for inviting yourself, hah!

        • You can also buy the curated box this month. That’s what I did because I like being surprised but I also really liked this month’s curated box.

    • We are box twins! I love this box!

    • Wow, nice box!

  16. I went with the non-curated box because I loved the design so much and because I tend to enjoy a mystery. 🙂 I didn’t choose a sample, and I’m excited about what they chose:

    -Odacite Black Cumin + Cajeput Serum Concentrate
    -Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio Set
    -Dr. Jart Liftra Contour Cream
    -Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution
    -Amika Un.Done Texture Spray

    • I also went total surprise this month and got the same as you! This will definitely be a good BB month

    • LOL. 3 of these items are in the curated box.

      • I know! I debated about which box to get, and I’m getting more than half of the curated box stuff anyway … funny.

    • Same box, I didn’t select anything this month! I hope the Au Nautrale is a usable size considering the three products in one compact. Very excited to try the Amika (my first Amika sample ever!?) and the Marcelle Miceller. All in all awesome brands and all new to me. Yay.

  17. Did not choose a thing got a great box! It seems like they get me!

  18. Since I picked the curated box do I not get points to review my samples?

    • You still get points for your reviews! The only time you won’t is if you’ve already gotten one of the samples in the box and have already reviewed it.

  19. I’m excited for this month! I’m getting some great things that I haven’t tried yet!
    Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
    Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm
    Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio Set (my sample choice)
    Living Proof Dry Shampoo
    Amika Hairspray

    • I would have loved this box except for the trio set.

    • Box twins! I’m so happy with this box, I’ve heard great things about the Tata Harper mask. Hopefully it’s a good sample size!

  20. Also, I’ve really been wanting to try that PB & J stick! It’s not going to be in my box, but it looks like a lot of people are getting it, so hopefully I can swap for it! ::crosses fingers::

  21. Davine’s Trio, Au Naturale trio, Acure face scrub, English Laundry perfume sample, Whish shaving cream.

    Overall, not bad… but I we all got shampoos last month. :/ And since it’s 3 things from the same brand, giving my box 7 samples, I’m guessing they’re all going to be tiny foil packets. AND I just finished up the Whish shave cream sample I had swapped for earlier today! (…for which I had decided not to try to get in swaps again!)

    • Those Davine shampoo & conditioner samples are in nice fat little bottles, actually. The Oi sample is foil, though.

      • Oh, cool, thanks for letting me know!

        • I got the same products. The two trios.. MakeUp and Shampoo sets did bring our BB to 7 items! I’ve got a good deal of American Indian heritage so no hair on legs etc. I won’t be using the shaving cream unless it smells great and be used as a lotion type in shower.

  22. I got my regular box and used my points to buy the curated box too. This is why I’m getting in my regular box:
    Marcelle Micellar solution.MIllie like I’ll be getting two of those this month.
    Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick
    Rent keep young firming beauty shot
    English Laundry Notting Hill perfume
    I chose Briogeo hair mask because I used it before and loved it.

  23. Omg I didn’t pick a sample and I am sooooo excited for my box! Marcelle 3 in 1, Malin & Goetz facial cleanser and also a moisturizer from them, OCC LIP TAR (insert little girl in candy store scream), Bridgio hair mask (tried with ipsy and not bad) AND a wen mud mask!! 6 samples, I can use most or all of them and I get to try lip tar? Best month this year!

    • I absolutely LOVE the lip tar. I went back and bought two more colors. And I’m not even a lip color type of girl.

      • I luv the lip tars. Got one in ipsy and Boxycharm . All the colors are really pretty!! I also bought the Curated Box!!!

    • I didn’t choose a sample this month either and got the same box! I wonder what lip tar color we’ll get! Very excited. 🙂 Think I’ll not select any sample choice from now on unless it’s something I absolutely love

    • Box twins! 🙂 I hope we get a good color for the lip tar!

    • JEALOUS!!! 😀

  24. I didn’t select a sample choice, and am getting:
    – Acure Organics Lip Lush (eh, looks alright; I wonder if they send things based on what you buy, since I hadn’t gotten anything like that, bought a lip balm, and suddenly they sent another sample balm and now a gloss)
    – Fragrance sample (I actually haven’t gotten one; looking forward to trying)
    – Vasanti brightening facial scrub (reviews sound good)
    – Supergoop! CC Cream (just got their sunscreen serum last month, which is a little odd; I hope it comes in fair to light, not light to medium as described
    – Davines OI Milk, shampoo, and conditioner (it’s nice to get to review all three of these rather than all in one. Should be nice to try.

    Altogether, looking good!

    • Ooh sounds like a good one! The facial scrub is great but smells a little like chemicals to me; it works super good as a microdermabrasion product. And the Supergoop came to me in fair/light. I thought it would be too light for my extremely pale skin, but it blended really nicely. The sample of the Supergoop is just so tiny (like smaller than my pinky)! I’m definitely saving up my points to buy the full size!

      • Haha I meant too ‘dark’! This is why we don’t post at 4:50 in the morning ?

  25. I probably should have gotten the curated box – but I just LOVE the regular box’s design so much more than the curated box!! Totally silly, and yet I did it.

    -Beaver Repair Rescue shampoo and conditioner (I received this brand in April’s BB box of last year! But didn’t care for it.)
    -Acure Organics Pore Minimizing Facial Scrub (intrigued!)
    -Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio Set
    -a fragrance sample (bleh)

    Not too excited with this month. Oh well. It happens.

    • I got the same. Shampoo, conditioner, and a perfume sample in the same month? Ugh. At least the box is pretty!

      • Right?

        I don’t always mind getting shampoo/conditioner, though. I’m psyched when I get Davines! But my previous experience with this Beaver brand was pretty meh.

    • I wanted the curated box but loved the non-curated box design so much that I re-activated my second account. So I’m a little silly too but I don’t care 🙂

      • We can all be silly together. 😀

  26. So glad I’m getting the curated box, I’m definitely intrigued by the dry conditioner though!

  27. Beaver Repair Rescue Conditioner
    Beaver Repair Rescue Shampoo
    Acure Organics Pore Minimizing Facial Scrub
    Penhaligon’s Levantium Eau de Toilette
    Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio Set (sample choice)
    not very excited, i hate shampoo and conditioner samples not my best box but all of them can’t be winners lol

    • I love Acure products. I was introduced to the company in a Target beauty box and then got some more samples in my Birchbox and in a Mystery Sample Pack. I bought some full size products about a month ago, one of which I still haven’t touched yet because I’m still using the sample!

  28. Whish shaving cream, PB&J smoothie stick, deep conditioning hair mask, rms makeup remover wipes, and Amika dry conditioner. Excited to try them all!

    • Same box here! Everything looks great to me this month 🙂

    • I am getting the same thing as you, lol

    • I’m getting this exact same box too

    • I’m getting the same box! ! So excited for the pb and j smoothie stick and the dry conditioner!!

    • I’m *also* getting the same box. I’m really curious about the PB&J stick, excited to try the dry conditioner and hair mask, least excited about the makeup wipes and shave cream – Whish products always smell too powdery for me.

  29. I’m getting the beauty crop pb&j smoothie stick (probably what I’m most excited about), whish shave crave shaving cream (what I’m least excited about, reviews arnt great). Briogeo don’t dispair, repair deep moisturizer (was my sample pick). Vasanti brighten up enzymatic face rejuvinator (also really excited to try this). Last but not least supergoops cc cream SPF. I’m pretty happy with my box, minus the whish, I was not a fan of their face wash oil and this shave cream has mixed reviews, I guess I’ll see. Really hoping the smoothie stick is a good sample size!!

    • That Vasanti face wash is amazing! The shave cream however, not so much 🙂

    • I am getting the same box as you for my non-Ace sub. (I got the curated box for my Ace sub.) I am looking forward to the Vasanti and the PB&J. I’m hoping the latter is a full size or a deluxe sample size (I’m not counting on a full-size Vasanti) because otherwise the box is “meh.” I chose the Briogeo as the least of three evils, so to speak, but I wasn’t thrilled about it and didn’t want to risk getting the other two worse sample choices or get a second curated box. I’m not excited at all about the shaving cream, and the Supergoop is OK, I guess, but a lot of times the tinted stuff isn’t the right shade. For example, I have two highly rated BB cream samples from recent boxes, but neither is the right shade for me. I was thinking yesterday that I might be able to blend them, but I want to do that when I have time to mess with it and possibly start over if it doesn’t work.

      • I scrolled long enough and found my box twins!

        Interesting to note that I also picked the Briogeo for my sample choice. Perhaps that is a huge factor on which of the box options we get? It kind of makes sense, though you would think they would take our profiles a bit more into consideration?

        I’m actually happy with this month though. the last couple of months have been a bit disappointing, so hopefully this box is enough to make me excited to receive my birchboxes again!

    • This is the same as mine 🙂

  30. Currated box for my primary sub which looks great and I got 7 samples in my secondary box: Davines oil shampoo, conditioner, and milk, Pop matte lipstick, Supergoop cc cream, Accure pore minimizing scrub, and Comptoir perfume.

    • I’ve always been happy with Davines products. I’ve gotten three MOMO shampoos in mystery sample packs (including two in one shipment when there was a bonus MSP). They’re a good size, worth quite a bit based on the full-sized price, and each last me about two weeks with daily shampooing. I’m also a big fan of Acure products. I got the curated box for my primary sub but would’ve been happy with your box for my secondary. Well, not so much with the perfume, but the ability to get 70 points makes up for that. I buy everything through my primary account to maintain Ace status and to consolidate as much as possible, but I especially love extra samples to review on my secondary. I’m saving up the points to zero out my account on one or two awesome purchases (possibly broken up for MSPs) in case I feel like dumping a second sub.

  31. I saw mine last night but wasn’t sure how to alert you guys! On one account I picked the curated and on my other account I’m getting 7 items!! I think I’m more excited for the cute box and 70 review points though. In my non curated I picked the Au Naturale Cosmetics Trio and the rest I’m getting is: English Laundry Notting Hill perfume (boo! hate getting perfumes), The Beauty Crop PB&J Smoothie Stick (cute lip pencil) The Jart Liftra Contour Cream (same as the curated box), Davine’s All in one Milk (leave in treatment?), and then a Davine’s shampoo, and conditioner as well. I think I’m most excited for the makeup items this month- the trio, the Laura Geller blush, and the adorable PB&J lipstick.. reminds me of something I’d have as a tween lol

  32. Davines Oil shampoo, conditioner, and milk.
    Dr. Jart+ Liftra Contour Cream
    Au Naturale Trio (sample choice)
    The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick
    And a perfume sample.
    I am super happy with this box. I hope it does not change.

    • *Davines Ol

      • Hahaha. I had the same autocorrect.

    • Ooh, Davines and Dr. Jart in the same box!! Jealous. 🙂

    • This is my box, too. Excited about everything but the perfume!
