  1. Blast! Did Sample Choice already close?! I thought it just became available yesterday, but when I log into my account, it says it has already closed. Am I off on my timing?

  2. I never regret cancelling. The curated box is always better so if you’re on the fence about it just trust me and go curated. No matter what sample choice they give you! I loved all the curated boxes, but with the sample choice I ALWAYS got repeats.
    I’ve had so many beauty box subscriptions since Birchbox. I’ve had subscriptions that didn’t work for me and never impressed me, but I have never experienced a beauty box that I felt so ‘cheated’ about. I usually like when I get smaller sized samples just because of my limited space plus I can take as much makeup as I want with me anywhere. But I was insulted by some of the sizes from bb. Its literally the size of a foil sample, they just stick it in a bigger tube. ipsy is so much better and ipsy is not so luxury. If I could go back I would skip Birchbox all together.

  3. So, I signed up again with the intention of getting a March box, they shipped me a Feb one today??? Why would they do that? It seems incredibly dishonest especially with the fact that they state boxes for that month will ship by the tenth of that month when you complete the purchase.

    • Thant’s odd.. because I just signed up for a second account on a different email 3 days ago, and I’m getting the March as my first box.. just picked my sample choice today. Also.. it says March will be my first. Maybe if you call them? Not fair really.. everyone should have the same options.

      • Same! I signed up a few days ago and was shipped a feb box yesterday. I would have thought march would be the first box.

        • I just checked mine again. I was getting nervous that maybe I am getting the February first.. but no, still says March is my first box. I used the code to get the bonus Pixi eyeshadow pallett. Maybe that made a difference? Not sure?

  4. How do I pick my sample and make sure it goes in my box?

  5. I went for the curated since my main reason for keeping birchbox these days is to try every R+Co product that I can get my hands on!

  6. I went with the curated box this month because I’d use everything in it! So it was a winner for me. wasn’t feeling any of the sample choices because I own 3 samples of They’re Real from previous BB boxes, already own full-size arrow eyeliner and brightener (great product btw) and wasn’t into getting a face moisturizer.

  7. I got the curated separately this month and picked the Arrow for my sample choice. I was torn between that and the Kiehl’s but I’m using La Mer right now so I don’t need a facial moisturizer.

  8. I just subscribed to birch box a couple days ago so not quite sure how this works yet.

    On the site, it says my box has already shipped. I thought I would be able to pick a sample tomorrow though??

    • I think ( not 100% sure because sample choice wasn’t a thing when I first joined BB) the first month you receive what is known as a Welcome Box. Then sample choice becomes available your second month.

      • Ah ok. Good to know. Thanks!

      • I just remembered lol. Today is ACES only for sample choice. Or those who invited someone to check out BB. Tomorrow sample choice is available for everyone. So definitely check your account tomorrow because I’m not entirely sure if my first comment about new comers not being able to choose until the 2nd box is correct.

      • So if they send a “Welcome” box, any idea what that would be? I’m tempted…

        • The welcome box is usually just a box of 5 random samples. Sort of like if you didn’t choose the curated box or a sample pick, and just let BB pick the samples for you.

          • Hmmm…kinda sounds like leftovers lol.

          • I just signed up for a second account with BB 4 days ago and I am able to make my choices. You need to click on March customization. It just wouldn’t make sense if I am able too, and others can’t. This is my 4th time signing up to BB, and I have never got a welcome box. I’ve had a free box with a promo code at sign up that was filled with random things, but still always got my regular box with the sample choices.

          • It’s weird but they shipped the feb box to me and I was able to pick the march one. I thought since I subscribed so late, march would have been my first one

  9. I’m going for the curated box this month! I would use everything in it!
