Birchbox - April 2013

Women's Health Birchbox

This is a monthly cosmetic sample subscription box from a company called Birchbox. This box costs $10 per month which includes shipping.  In April's box were the following samples:
  1. Women's Health Magazine - card for free one year subscription
  2. Welda - 3 packet samples of body lotion
  3. Nexxus - rejuvenating hair elixir
  4. Skin & Co - Sicilan Shower Body Gel
  5. Stri-Vectin SD - eye concentrate for wrinkles .25 fl oz
  6. Young Blood - anti-shine mattifier
It's a bit odd that this box was named "Women's Health" when the only product for health is the magazine subscription! This was a good box, since the magazine subscription alone pays for it.  Birchbox is hit and miss, some months it's a good deal and other months it can be quite a disappointment.  They do have a profile that you can fill out and it is suppose to aid them in sending you products that are suited for your skin tone, hair type, etc.  They have several different boxes that they send out each month.  If you read another subscriber's review, they more than likely received different products than I did.  I was hoping that I would receive the nail polish since I listed on my profile that's what I would like to receive most of all, but no such luck.  So I really question if they even use the profile in their selection process of samples that they send out!  They have a points system where you can receive points for referrals, purchases and reviews.  For every 100 points you receive $10 off a future purchase.  Each box that is sent gives you 10 points, so in 10 months you would have $10 off a purchase even if you didn't get any referrals or reviewed any products.  The points expire in a year though.  Did you recently receive a Birchbox and did you like what you received?
