  1. What I got- 1st Box for dark, oily skin, and coarse/ curly- dry/ damaged hair (My “dark” box- I wanted to see if they truly read the profile and if they make even the slightest difference. I did not pick my own samples.)
    Amika Nourishing Mask
    Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo
    Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner
    Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
    Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner
    This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

    Second Box- Profile states- tan skin, red wavy hair, combination skin (My light box- Yeah… I did.)
    Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
    Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
    RMS Beauty Wipes
    Supergoop Sunscreen Oil
    The Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick

    Nothing I particularly hate. I just have products that I new to me that I have to try.

    I didn’t see anyone who had the same boxes as I did, though. What do y’all think?

    • *are new to me…. not I new to me. Sigh

  2. This is so frustrating! I got the shipment notification this morning (though the box won’t arrive until next weekend) but when I check their website to see what the samples are going to be, it says “We Are Prepping Your Box” and to check back later. Why can’t they tell me what’s in it if its already shipped??

    This will be my 2nd box with BB, and I am already very disappointed with them. Almost all of the items in the first box I received were the complete opposite of my profile. I have oily skin and they sent me stuff for dry skin, etc. What’s the point of filling out a profile if they ignore everything in it? If this month’s box is as bad as the last one I’ll be cancelling.

    • I finally got my reveals, and I am ready to cancel. Do these people pay any attention at all to the preferences you set up in your profile? This is my 2nd box with Birchbox, and both of them have been completely the opposite of my preferences! I tell them I air dry my thick, oily hair, and they send me blowout spray and texturizing spray. I tell them I have oily skin, and they send me moisturizers for dry skin. It seems like I just get whatever they have leftover, paying no attention whatsoever to my profile. This is such a scam!

      My April box:
      amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
      Number 4™ Jour d’automne Sugar Texturizing Spray
      Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner
      The Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick
      Dr. Jart+ Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Cream (I requested)

  3. There’s nothing in my box that I’m interested in here…

    Davines LOVE – Shampoo and conditioner

    HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder – Tahitian Vanilla & Berry

    Number 4™ Jour d’Automne Smoothing Balm

    Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick

    This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

    Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen with Cellular Response Technology SPF 50

  4. I re-subed after seeing this picture posted all over the place and then I got the email of what was in my box and OMG NO. I cancelled immediately. I would be doing a credit card dispute if I hadn’t been sent the Smashbox with it.. I would have been okay with different products if it were any of these things you ladies were talking about but its not. The only thing I’m getting that was pictured is the Tatcha. Here’s my box line up.. (none of which matches up to my profile in the slightest)

    TokyoMilk Dark Bulletproof Parfum (smells like smoke and cedar? WTF nice spring scent for a female eh..)
    Davines LOVE – Shampoo and conditioner sample. (I have TONS of curly hair and these samples are never enough to do all of my hair. I usually have to save them until I get repeats and then use 2-3 of them at a time)
    Number 4™ Jour d’automne Sugar Texturizing Spray- (I have corse curly dry hair, WHY would I spray sugar in it SMH)
    The Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick in colour PURPLE (I’m 35 yrs old, copy paper white with redhair – all in my profile- what would possess them to send me purple lipstick)


    • I’m 35 yrs old, copy paper white with redhair – all in my profile- what would possess them to send me purple lipstick”

      And that is exactly why I’m iffy about the beauty box subs. So far I’ve gotten tons of super glittery weird-colored makeup that would look ridiculous on an adventurous teenager with a perfect complexion, so it’s not going to be super flattering on a somewhat conservative thirtysomething mom with rosacea…and it’s not like I don’t make that known on my profiles. There is nothing even remotely elegant or age appropriate for a real world, real life working adult who might not want to look like a colorblind middle schooler. I’ve given up everything but Ipsy.

  5. This link STILL won’t work, even today 4/5. Reveils are ALWAYS up by the 5th! Ugh. I’m getting so impatient! Lol I cant see my April box by using this link, or going on the website and selecting my box myself, OR using the app! It just takes me to a black page any way I try 🙁 Anyone else??

    • Same! Eunbi (down below) left a comment with a great suggestion. Go to “Help & Contact” and start a chat with a BB representative. Ask them if they can reveal the contents of your April box.

      I got a response almost immediately!

      • I did that also and got told i will only see my box once it ships :/. Don’t know why they didn’t want to show me after asking nicely but let other people.

        • My box says it shipped but it still won’t show items. It says prepping box.. Which one is it..shipped or being prepped.. Everything i saw others get is repeats or things way off my profile… Prob my last box I’m fed up

          • Mine too! How can it be shipped and still prepping? Plus, they made me reset my password. They said it was expired. What? I couldn’t access my account unless I did which further irritated me. I’ve been a subscriber since April 2011 (2011!!) and I think I’m done too. Everything about Birchbox is frustrating lately.

          • Same here! I signed up like 2weeks ago and had to reset my password.. i dont understand why. I dont wanna be changing pw every two weeks lol..

          • I had to reset my password too, now it won’t accept the new password on the app. I even reinstalled it. :/

          • I had the same problem. I think they decided to strengthen their password requirements and anyone who already had a password that did not meet those requirements was locked out. Very poor rollout! I contacted support and they were able to change it.

  6. There’s a new Birchbox Limited Edition box that looks AWESOME! I just ordered it! Check it out, it’s called Do Not Disturb.

    • OMG thank you for posting! I just bought one. You are right about it looking awesome.

      • Right? I couldn’t resist either! It is one of the best they have had in a while! Can’t wait to get my paws on it;)

    • Wow, that has a lot of stuff in it! I just finished using that Kerastase hair mask (I got it in a Glossybox), and it was amazing!!!

      • Oooh, good to know!

  7. I hate when these come out and I get all excited for my reveals and then they don’t load on the page. :'(

    • I know – me too. The “B” just keeps changing colors, but no products pop up.

      • Same here. It was showing nothing. But I contacted the birchbox chat and they can reveal them if you ask them!

        • Thanks for the tip! I just did that and she gave me my list of items right away. 🙂

          • Glad I could help! I know we all want to see what we get!! LoL

  8. Wow I’m actually super excited for every product in a year and a half of being a subscriber. Shocked! In a good way.

    • Me too- I’ve consistently loved my boxes.

  9. Thanks for the link Liz. I finally got it to work on m laptop tonight and I’m thrilled with everything I’m getting!

  10. Second month the link didn’t work for me. So guess it will be a surprise.

    • It’s not working for me either and I downloaded the app. Guess my mystery box will be a mystery:))

      • Mine isn’t ready yet too. I left this one up to them, fingers crossed. The last time they gave me three of the sample choices, I emailed and asked why they would do that. If I wanted one of those wouldn’t I pick one, right? They ended up giving me a free next month, I swear that their CS is the only reason I stick around.
        Good luck all.

  11. This month I’m receiving:
    *Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
    *Amika Nourishing Mask
    *ModelCo Lip Enchancer Illusion Lip Liner
    *Number 4 Jour d’Automne Smoothing Balm
    *Schmidt’s Deodorant Stick

    Finally no perfume samples!

  12. I am getting:

    Shiseido – IBUKI Quick Fix Mist
    R+Co – HIGH DIVE Moisture + Shine Creme
    Number 4 – Sugar Texturizing spray (my choice)
    The Beauty Crop – GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick
    Schmidt’s Deodorant Stick

    This kind of a strange box for me. I’m excited about the Shiseido and Number 4, but they keep sending me hair oil and moisturizers for my very oily hair. And what’s up with the deodorant stick?!?!? Would have loved to try the Michael Todd toner.

    • Omg, so jelly over the Shiseido mist! I might break down and buy it.

  13. First box so I’m getting the Smashbox mini palette and:

    1. Marcelle BB cream
    2. Amika hair mask
    3. Number4 smoothing balm
    4. Kiehl’s reviving concentrate
    5. Liquid Lipstick

    👍🏼😁 I like this box!

  14. The box looks great, but the last three months , the box looks great but my box looks like a pathetic doll sample joke. I have been burned for 3 months in a row. No more!

  15. I’m getting three different Oribe Bright Blonde items. If I love them, this will be a great box. Plus a BB cream, a lip liner (excited to try), the makeup wipe, and (of course) a dry shampoo. Excited to give them a try at least!

    • What kind of hair type do you put in your profile? I need dry shampoo but never get it.

      • Normal wavy. I mean, I like dry shampoo, but I’ve gotten it in three of the last four boxes at least.

  16. link not working for me ??!!

  17. I feel like I hit the jackpot this month. I’m getting almost the same box as Liz except the pillow spray (my choice) instead of the make up wipes. I’m pretty excited for this box as I’ll use everything except the lippie. Woo!

    • Box twins!!!👯

    • me too! Excited this month. 🙂

  18. I had an “Oh Crap!” moment when I saw this post. April snuck up on me and I forgot to cancel after March’s box of disappointment. The Birchbox gods must have sensed they were on the chopping block, because I am receiving the BEST box I have ever received from them!

    *Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
    *Amika Nourishing Mask
    *ModelCo Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner
    *Number 4 Jour d’Automne Smoothing Balm
    *Schmidt’s Deodorant Stick

    I’m a happy BB camper this month 🤗

    • Ha ha! Birchbox & Ipsy kept doing that to me when my annual subs were about to end. The final 3 boxes for each sub were super awesome!!! Prior to that, I was always giving at least two products away from each box each month. I did keep BB for one more month, but then finally held strong, and cancelled. I think since my 1st box in my new monthly sub wasn’t that exciting to me, it re-enforced why I wanted to cancel.

  19. I’m getting:
    – Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
    – Amika Nourishing Mask
    – R+Co. High Dive Moisture + Shine Cream
    – Dr. Jart + Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream
    – The Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick

    • Box twins- I’m happy 🙂

    • Box triplet…

      Not sure how I feel… except that I am drowning in hair products. After last month’s box, I tried changing my profile to the most “low maintenance” hair options available and I still ended up with 2 hair products in this month’s box.

      Oh well.

  20. I chose the Spotlight on Anti-Aging box (Beta)… I can’t wait to get it!! 😀 <3

  21. There should nothing ‘magic’ about anything in my box. THREE hair products (and no; none are a shampoo and conditioner) and the rest are the same tired samples we’ve been getting over and over. I keep going back and forth with Birchbox hoping it’ll get better. But I have no learned that hope breeds eternal misery.

    • There is nothing. Not sure how should got in there.

  22. I feel like I hit the motherload!

    COOLA® SPF 50 Sport – Mango
    amika Nourishing Mask
    Hustle Butter Luxe
    This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (my choice)
    SHOW Beauty Pure Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner
    The Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick

    I am thrilled with my future box! 😀

    • Looks great! COOLA products always smell so good, too! 🙂

  23. I can never see my reveals until super late.

    • Jk. I can actually see it. Some of the items I’m excited about. But I’m also getting little shampoo and conditioner samples for “coarse or frizzy hair.” I have fine, straight hair. Oh Birchbox. Why?

  24. I switched to ipsy. I’ve been hearing better things about them with the points and having options to pick items. I like hearing that!

  25. I was with Birchbox for 3 months. I cancelled this subscription because of poor customer service or lack of.My March box arrived warped. When I opened the box the hair plumper spray bottle cap was off and it was obvious the entire bottle leaked. I contacted them on 3-15 and never heard anything back from them. Will never subscribe to them again. To many other options that value their customers.

  26. Happy with my box, as I usually am. Birchbox seems to be the best fit for me of the various boxes I’ve tried. I like the mix of hair products, skin care, and occasional makeup samples.ive found some great items thru these boxes.

  27. No reveal for me, just shows my sample choice with a message that says “we’re boxing it up for you”. “Your box will ship April 10th”.

    • Try on desktop or iPad, as it won’t show on your phone.

    • Are you using the app? If you’re using the app, there should be a little place for you to click into, and it will show you the items.

    • That’s what mine says too and I’m on my ipad looking in the app

    • Sighhhh.. same here 🙁 ..

  28. I’m getting two boxes this month – I picked the Curated box for one, but then decided I HAD to try the Cicapair cream too, so I re-subbed for my second box. I’m getting:

    Malin and Goetz – Grapefruit face cleanser

    Davines LOVE – Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner for Coarse or Frizzy hair (These two annoy me, but that’s because my hair is very fine. I don’t need coarse/frizzy hair stuff!)

    Dr. Jart – Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream

    Number 4 – Sugar Texturizing spray

    The Beauty Crop – GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick

    So, all in all, I’m pretty excited for these samples. And, in general, I like Davines products. I just hate that it’s completely the opposite of my hair type. Should be a good box, though!

  29. I think I’m done with Birchbox. I’m getting the Whish shaving cream in my box. That’s about all that needs to be said.

    • This was my first month with Birchbox and for some reason, even though they billed me in April, I’m getting the March box. The box is also almost entirely haircare! I unsubbed immediately and I’m going to try Sephora Play now. This is really unbelievable.

      • Either you joined before 3/25 (in which case, you’ll get a March AND April box), or .. I think they had a promo where if you signed up, your first box would be the Draper James/Curated box. Those would be the only two reasons you’d get March’s box.

        In general, Birchbox is a haircare/skincare heavy sub. I come and go from it, because sometimes I’m in the market for new items (or their curated boxes are just good enough to tempt me), and sometimes they’re not. Sephora Play has really tiny samples, for the most part. I come and go with that one, too. They also do a fair amount/mix of skincare and hair care, but you will see more makeup in SP.

        Good luck, whichever way you go.
