Birchbox Reviews: What You Should Know…Honestly.

Birchbox reviews can be very helpful before you buy your subscription. I was thrilled when my husband bought me a Birchbox subscription for Christmas (such a sweet guy). I had been going back and forth about whether or not to subscribe; so it was really a perfect gift…I’m actually so happy with the box that I’m giving my best friend a subscription for her birthday and my mom a subscription for Mother’s Day!

Birchbox Reviews: Does It Live Up To The Hype?



The answer to that question is simply YES. I was skeptical at first, but all of the products they have sent to me have been things that I would buy. I also have fun giving some of my samples to friends.

Here are some reasons that Birchbox is HYPE worthy

1. The sample sizes are really large!!

The samples usually last 1-3 months depending on use. The perfumes last me even longer! The sizes are generally larger than normal deluxe samples.


2. Getting a surprise gift once a month is flipping amazing.

It’s the gift that keeps on giving! It’s like your best friend drops off a little gift of amazing products every month. I. Love. It.

3. The Price Is Right

$10 per month. That’s peanuts. Anyone can budget for $10/month. I definitely get my money’s worth and more. The joy I get from receiving Birchbox, well that is priceless.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Birchbox

Here are my tips to make sure your Birchbox is everything you want it to be and more!

Queen Cheap Tips To Make Your Birchbox Amazing

1. Customize Your Box

Make sure to customize your account right away, it really makes a difference. My first month I did not know to customize since it was a gift. The products I received were still great, but nothing compared to the customized products I received AFTER I answered all of the Birchbox questions. Now every month I’m getting all the products I want and need.

2. Write Product Reviews

For every Birchbox product review you write you get 10 points to use in their store. 100 points equals $10. So you can pretty quickly save up your points to buy something in their store (yes some things are as cheap as $10!) I buy my Clairsonic brushes with my points, thanks Birchbox!

3. Sign Up For The Birchbox Email List

Their email list is great and always sends out special deals for their store. I also sometimes get sneak peaks and special choices for upcoming boxes on their email list.
