Birchbox – April 2012


  1. Hi there! I was lucky enough to stumble across your site, and you’ve put me in direct connection with many awesome beauty finds! BirchBox being one of them…or so it seemed initially. The last couple of months, my box has been pretty disappointing. At first, I dismissed it as luck of the draw, but this month really showed that the variance in the quality of items sent out is huge! I’m not sure if your boxes are being specially hand-picked because of your online reviews…or if it really is just luck of the draw, but my last few boxes (with the exception of the Teen Vogue box) have SUCKED compared to yours!!!

    April’s box is a perfect example. Not one of our items were the same!!! I received a 0.67 fl. oz. sample of Amika hair mask (barely enough for one use with my long hair), 5ML (.17 fl. oz.) Juice Beauty moisturizer sample (enough with the moisturizer!), Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck perfume sample, Zoya nail polish (left over from January/February’s boxes????), and….capsule laundry detergent sample 🙁 Sad puppies!!!!!

    I’m going to give it one more go, but things are not looking good. At least my QVC Tarte set is amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing!!!

      Hi Kristina. I know how you feel. Some of my previous boxes have been so disappointing. I think it is just luck of the draw. I don’t know how many times I’ve been envious of someone else’s Birchbox contents. In fact, I’ve often mentioned my desire for them to make everyone’s boxes the exact same. But the hard thing is actually cancelling because you keep thinking “what if?”. I want to cancel MyGlam but I know if I do, next month’s bag will be awesome so I keep hanging on. I guess that’s why they keep us in suspense. Good luck, hope it gets better for you!
