Now on to the full part where I show you the samples I have received over the last six months.
Total score 3/5
Now that you have seen all the great goodies I have received, I bet you are wanting to know how they pick the samples and what the heck is sample choice.
When you sign up for Birchbox you fill out a really simple questionnaire about yourself. It will ask what kind of hair you have, what your major skin concerns are, and the like. From the questionnaire they pick 5 samples from the companies they have partnered with. Sample choice is an option to pick one of your samples. For the July sample choice, everyone made a selection of one mascara out of like three choices. For September the sample choice was between three different Milk products. If you don’t care about the sample choice, you don’t have to select any of the three (that’s what I’m doing for the November box).
Now if you really don’t like surprises, you can pick the featured box. The featured box contains 5 samples that are curated for the month. Everyone that picks the feature box gets the same samples. I picked the curated box in June.
After you receive and try your products, you give feedback by rating your products. This helps them pick better items for you next time.
While I hands down love Birchbox, they mostly send skin care items. If you are looking for more than one makeup sample a month, this wouldn’t be the subscription box for you.
