  1. I’m rather underwhelmed this month, but usually birchbox gets it right so I’m sticking with it. Will probably pick the hair product. It’s a really good brand.

  2. It hurts me to say this, but I think I’m cancelling my Birchbox sub. Just too many boxes of samples I really don’t want. And since I’m not an ACE anymore, there aren’t any other perks. The sample choices for May are terrible and only a couple things in the curated box interest me. After 3 years, maybe it’s time for a break. From what I hear others saying, it sounds like it’s pretty easy to resub, so I may come back once I use up some of my massive stash, and when the boxes get better.

    • Yeah, I think I’m cancelling for a while too. The samples are overwhelming, have a drawer full. Maybe will come back to them someday, if I every get my stash down too.

  3. So glad I cancelled, I was so so tired of their little itty bitty samples. I’m still a ace so I might still purchase stuff from them but come on Birchbox the samples just got smaller and smaller. I was beginning to feel like a giant when I would pick them out of the box

  4. I think I’m going to pick the self tanner then purchase a curated box for $10 more.

  5. Definitely going with the curated box this time. I’m interested in trying everything in it, except probably the Wander Beauty. Especially interested in the lip masks.

  6. I absolutely love birchbox! I’ve only had it and Ipsy as my beauty boxes and Ipsy definitely didn’t work out for me. Out of 5 boxes maybe I liked 3 items. I’ve signed up for Allure and am hoping I like it as much as birchbox. But, guess that’s why there are so many beauty boxes as everyone has different tastes/likes &dislikes. I’m definitely getting the curated birchbox this month! It looks awesome! And I also think birchbox has an awesome CSR team!

  7. Meh, I just signed up a couple of months ago, and I’m not impressed. Out of all the boxes I’ve signed up for, this is my least favorite. I think I’m canceling. If you want to re-join – how easy is it?

    • I’ve been off & on with Birchbox, and it’s been very easy to rejoin… all I’ve had to do is purchase a new subscription. 🙂

    • FYI – I logged in this morning thinking I was going to cancel but there is a skip a month option too. So they won’t charge for May but your account will be reactivated in June (unless you skip again of course). So I did that instead…

      • I wasn’t able to find the skip a month option. I just canceled. I’m going to put that $10.90 towards a full size product I really want.

    • It’s very easy to rejoin, I cancelled last month and then decided to rejoin this month because I like skin care items. Just wondering if I should switch to glossybox. You also get a free item when you rejoin I got a lipstick

  8. None of the sample choices are new to me, but I’m not even mad because I use that self-tanner and it’s not cheap. Though if Birchbox wants to send me the Loc stick too I won’t complain.

  9. I want the curated box. I love those lip masks. I hoard them every chance I get. My daughter and I love them. Everything else in the box looks good too. I may have to re-sub.

  10. I like all of it. Not sure which direction to go.

  11. The curated box looks pretty good.

    • Definitely going with the curated box. None of the single options look good.

  12. Well, I guess it’s time for me to take a break again. None of the samples are calling my name. Although, for the record, I do really like the LOC eyeshadow sticks. I have oily lids and they really do stay put and not crease all day long. But since I like them so much I have a pretty good stockpile already and don’t want to risk getting 4 more samples I won’t like just to get another one of those (I just bought another set 20% off in their makeup sale yesterday as a matter of fact!).

    • I really like those shadow sticks too! I have two of the Heavy Petal shades, and it’s a pretty nice “basic” shade that is perfect on its own for a low-key makeup look.

    • Do you use primer with them? Just wondering as I have very oily eyelids also

      • I do use primer but just becuase it’s habit by this point. I put primer on my lids the same time as my face and then I decide what kind of shadow I’m going to use. So everything gets a primer. LOL. I’m not sure if they would need some or not…

  13. I am not interested in anything displayed in the video. As I think about it now, this box isn’t a good fit for me. Each month I keep only 1 or 2 items. I didn’t care for anything from my March box. Trying to swap deluxe minis is a pain, as most people (understandably) want full size products. I have just cancelled.

    • How do u cancel on the app?

  14. Definitely picking the shadow stick. Love the ease of using this kind of product with my powders and LOVE the shade color!!

    Great sample choice option—Thumbs up!!

  15. Glad I unsubscribed bc my last box sucked so bad! I’ve had them for almost a year and it’s like u look at all the products u received from them compared to ipsy, allure, play and ur like why do I even have this box? Last month they gave me 2 of the same thing just different brands. Imma wait til they actually make it worthwhile again lol sorry it’s just what I’ve experienced. I’m not an ant btw so why give ant size samples?

  16. I love everything in the curated box for May! Definitely going with that for my *2* Birchbox subs!

  17. I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority, but I loved those KNC lip masks from FFF. I’m definitely going to pick that as my sample. They made my lips so soft.

    • Those lip masks are part of the curated box, and not one of the sample pick items, so you’ll need to pick the curated box if you’d like to ensure you get the lip masks. I just thought I’d mention that so that when selection day comes, you won’t be wondering where the lip masks are. 🙂

    • I don’t think the lip mask is a sample choice, unless you meant you were picking the curated box.
