post #1891 of 2779

I agree with everything that is being talked about with the cost. I have only been a subscriber since Feb, but a stalker since November I think and it always does seem like there are a ton of people who are super disappointed. My first month I got a bunch of packets (the eyeliner, mouthwash, the tiny Jouer) and my march box had the hair powder and stila page. While it did have nail polish, I never paint my nails so that was worthless to me. The only thing I have been really happy with was my Vichy box before I switched skin care lines and the Juice Cleanser! I think the Chinese menu would be the best option with one big ticket item in every box!

 

We should get behind that business plan! 

post #1892 of 2779

To the ladies out west who are concerned that their packages are still in NJ: I live in California too and have noticed that there is always about a 3-day period without any tracking updates while my package is traveling from NJ to CA. For example, last month, my box was scanned in NJ on March 12, and then the next update showed it in CA on March 15. I got my box the next day. I'm also in that "no updates" window right now. Because of the weekend, I'm hoping my box will show up in CA tomorrow and that I'll get it on Tuesday, but we'll see! Anyway, just wanted to reassure you that it's likely that your box is moving toward you, even if you haven't had an update in a while.

 

Edited because I wanted to add that the UPS MI delivery date has always been wrong for me. Maybe it's accurate for people who live on/near the East Coast, but I have learned to totally disregard it.

Yeah and I have to add while the polish seems to be highly regarded items by many, in reality if I wanted to get the polish it's only $8 full size and I get to pick the color that I want. Personally I'd rather try higher end items that I would want to sample beforehand because I don't want to drop $80 on a cream that I may or may not like. That seems more risky. However the polish is a nice touch to an already decent box, which I haven't been lucky in getting. I agree, the Chinese menu would be a great way to make sure that everyone is happy.

At this point, I'm looking forward to year-long subscription ending, so I don't keep monthly reminders of how I wasted my money.



I 100% agree! I have tried every moisturizer under the sun, and find I'm better off not using it at all.  I've wondered if they pay attention at all to the beauty profiles. Then once in a while they get it right and you love your box :)

This really is true. It seems to balance out. It just sucks when it's your turn to get the crappy box!!
post #1898 of 2779


I totally agree! I got box #7 this month.. I calculated it's value around $9.20, and I wouldn't really mind if they were items that I wanted. But I wasn't excited about anything in there, and when I saw other boxes like box #14 with the tarte AND the mitt (valued around $60) that was when I felt wronged. I pay the same price and I always seem to get the worse boxes. BTW my February box was crappy too. The only boxes I liked were the January (with the stila eyeliner) and the TV March boxes, and they were equal to everybody else's anyway!

But this month was really really unfair! This was very unprofessional of them :(

It's unfair to put 2 high value samples in one box, and no high value samples in another. Or at least use the info in our profiles...I'm probably going to be a lot happier with a cheaper product that I will use than with an expensive one that goes in the trash. 

 

It seems to me that Birchbox has gotten way too big, way too fast. Things worked great when there were only 1,000 or even 10,000 subscribers, but now they have over 100,000? I'm fairly certain that they'll be adding quite a few more for the May Gossip Girl box.

Some people are jealous of other people's "crappy" box. I didn't think the point was to send people items that they already think or know they would love, but to try out new things. If you want to choose your items from a selection, that is a different business model, like Beauty Army.

post #1900 of 2779

 

Hey again sleepykat :)

 

 I wish there was someone jealous of my "crappy" box #8, but I tried trading and to no avail. I still think at least the expensive items could have been spread out more evenly and not go together in one box.The mitt could go in one with small samples, and the beauty balm could go in another box and the tarte could also go in another box with smaller samples.

post #1901 of 2779

I know how many of you feel.  I have had some really bad boxes in the past.  Feb was the worst I do believe.  That was the box when everyone was getting the beauty blenders minus me icon_cry.gif  Last month I signed up for the TV box, never got it. I got a box with the hair powder and what not.  I have tried that, doesnt work for me.  Extremely, I mean Extremely oily scalp and hair.  it just didnt do anything for me. 

The box amounts just dont make any sense for me.  I do not think they read the profiles we fill out.  

 

For everyone that do not think we should complain about it or other ways of saying that.  Like one person said, we are paying for the service.  And some of us are on the year long service, so it isnt like we can just cancel and get our money back.  

 

I do like the birthday month idea.  I feel like that is what my box is this month.  Since this is my birthday month and for how many time I have been pooped on with really bad boxes for the last few months.  This one makes up for it completely. 

 

Thank you for reading.  Have a wonderful day icon_cheesygrin.gif

I haven't gotten my Birchbox yet. I'm always able to either trade or gift anything that I won't use, but I concede that if that is not the case, it would be frustrating.

post #1903 of 2779
How common is it to get a different box than what's displyed on the website?
I don't have any updated tracking info yet, but the box on my profile looks amazing.
It says I'm supposed to be getting the lipsurgence, microdermamitt, yu-be skin cream, marula oil, and wonderstruck.
Still no nailpolish, but I'm okay with that.
post #1904 of 2779

I was on the birchbox website and took a peak at my box. Once I saw the first line of products I got mad at myself and quickly scrolled through to the bottom of the page so I wouldn't ruin it! My box should arrive tomorrow and I can't ruin the surprise now! gah. 

 

boo, it doesn't look like my box has moved in three days. Im not sure it will make it tomorrow. It arrived in the area, but not to my local post office.

post #1905 of 2779

Very uncommon, I think. You woud probably get them to send a replacement box to  the one showing on your account or some points to make up for the mistake. 
 

BTW- That sounds like an AWESoME box

I just checked mine and I'm excited about getting it. Can't wait!

post #1908 of 2779

My April Birchbox finally updated on the site! Can't wait to review for points since I already have my box.

post #1909 of 2779

I am able to review for 70.00 points on each of my accounts  this time :) I think they are making it easier for us to accumulate points, I saw there were lots of boxes with 6/7 products this monthl :) 

post #1910 of 2779

Mega, I am jealous of your Befine! I've wanted to try Befine products for ages.

post #1911 of 2779

This is my take on it, for what it's worth.

 

I don't think people would be happy and continue with the service if it were 'just' a $10 box each and every month with no chance of ever having it go over that, just so that everyone's box could be the same exact value.  If that were the case, then many of the other subscription services that send out Dollar Store type items would still have lots of very happy subscribers, rather than the disappointed ones that post here and warn others of the type of cheap vibe that those boxes have.  If you want to buy 5 $2 items for $10, you'd go and buy them, not have a random box of cheap stuff sent to you that you may or may not like.  I know that's how I'd feel, at least, if I were to consistently get a Dollar Store box, which is what it would have to be if it was 5 samples.  I think masses of people would dump their subscriptions if that were the case always.

 

I'm with the girls who feel that it all shakes out in the end.  I got one of the cheapest boxes this month, one of the $10 actual retail value boxes, and I think that that is pretty rare, all things considered, meaning it doesn't happen every month and more months than not it's definitely over $10.  But I also got a great box, with the Revolution Beauty Balm.  I feel like Birchbox told me that I'd be given a sampling of new and different things, including some I may not love, for the price of ten dollars, including shipping.  I think that's an outstanding deal.  The icing on the cake is that sometimes I get totally lucky and find a really high ticket item in one of my boxes.  I wouldn't want to take away the opportunity for the chance to get some really great items just because some months I don't get them.  I'm happy for the others who get them and know that sooner or later, one of the really cool items will be in my box.  And in the meantime, I get to hear about new products and brands and get first hand advice as to what really works and what doesn't so if I decide that I really must have that 'it' item, I can buy it with confidence.  And to top it all off, I can get about $5 a month to go towards those beauty splurges, just for filling out feedback on the items so that Birchbox knows what we love and what we don't love so much.  Plus I get great coupons every few months for 20% and I can stack my Birchbox points on top of that.  I think that's a pretty great business model and I am enjoying it.  I don't think that people should feel terrible about complaining, everyone has the right to spend or not spend the $10 for the roll of the dice.  I'm a subscriber with multiple boxes and was before the whole signing up for the extra Teen Vogue box because I like to increase the chances that I'll get some really cool stuff.  And with the doubles or extras I find it really fun to give out gift packages to friends, what isn't my favorite might be theirs or what is my favorite and I have doubles of I gladly share along with a personal recommendation as to why I love it.

 

I do think there are things that I'd like Birchbox to do better, and hopefully they'll continue to listen to their customers and keep growing as a company.  It would be outstanding if they listened to the beauty profiles better when filling boxes, I feel that it would make a lot more people happy.  There are so many times where someone gets a $29 lipstick who doesn't wear lipstick or a sample of an $80 face cream for wrinkles who is 21.

 

I love the fact that there are different boxes, it increases the anticipation and the suspense.  It keeps us guessing and keeps us coming back here commenting on what we love and what we hate, eagerly waiting for Zadidoll to post the sneak peeks of the next month's box shortly after we get our current month's box.  It sure keeps Birchbox on our tongues, no other sub service gets as many posts as Birchbox!  Right now, it's still one of my favorites, and there are a lot of really good ones.  For those who want excellent value with everyone getting mostly the same items each time, Test Tube and QVC Test Tube are outstanding for that.  I love my Test Tubes and am eagerly looking forward to my QVC tube.

 

Wow, this is a long post, I guess I had a lot more to say than I thought!  I probably couldn't work for a company like Birchbox because I want everyone to love their boxes and have a great experience and I don't know that that is possible.  The trade thread is really cool for those who can do it.  I have fun discussing and hearing what everyone has to say each month about all of the goodies that come in our Birchboxes.  I like to hear the good and the bad, knowing what works and what doesn't (yikes on the detergent!  So sorry about your little girl's clothes, Nicole!)  The combination of all of the products in the boxes gives us that much more to talk about, whereas companies like MyGlam only gives us 5 or 6 products a month to talk about.  Anyway, everyone has an opinion and that's just my humble one.  Thanks for all of the interesting comments and views, fellow Birchboxers, I love hearing other people's point of view and learning new ways that things could work better.  We have a lot of very smart women who follow this site. :)

post #1912 of 2779

I have really enjoyed all of my past boxes even if they werent the ones I had really been hoping for.  I didnt get the ones with the Beauty Blenders, the Dermatologica exfoliator or the One Love Beauty Balm that I really wanted to try, but i was still happy with what I rec'd once I tried the products. Of course some months are better than others, but I expect that.  I usually try and use just about everything in that comes in my Birchboxes, and what I know I'm not going to like, I give it to someone who will like it.  I have 3 accounts, and this month I have recieved 2 samples of the Altier (spelled wrong - sorry) cologne.  I tried, it and hated it, and I did toss both samples.  I didnt like the Farrah shade of the polish I received in one of my boxes.  I tried wearing it with a sheer pink micro-shimmer top coat, but still didnt like it, but my neice loves it.  I used my points to purchase the polish in Skylar and Lotus, and didnt end up paying anything for them. 

 

I dont worry about the monetary worth of a particular box.  I base its worth more on if I like the products, and if if I do like them, if its something I would have tried otherwise.  Discovering something that I really, really like that I otherwise might not even had known existed is the real value for me.

 

After reading some of the post on here, I just looked back at my box history for the account I have had the longest, and added up the dollar amount of each individual box, added them all together, and divided by the number of boxes, and it way exceeds the 10.00 a month I paid for it.  Then if I add in the 5 dollars or so in points from every box, its even more of a bargain.

 

I also subscribed to Beauty Bar's Sample Society, but its not nearly as much fun.  I dont know if its because everyone gets the same box or what it is, but for some reason it just doesnt thrill me the way Birchbox does. plus, for the most part, there was nothing completely new and different for me in the Sample Society boxes.  So far its all been stuff I've already tried and used, with the exception of the ByTerry product in the April box.

I agree, SS is definitely not as much fun.

Just read one page of any BB thread and you will quickly realize, its NOT! The same ppl complain about BB month in and month out and yet dont just take their business elsewhere. I dont get it. I have also tried suggesting other services if they are so dissatisfied, nope, they just keep complaining. I choose to not read those comments now. I like the fun, happy ones. Someone suggested last month a BB complaints thread where they can vent, I wish that would happen and we can all make these BB monthly threads what they are suppose to be: lighthearted, exciting and FUN :)

I've appreciated your posts, yanelib27!  Hopefully mine was kind of fun and happy, that's what I was striving for. :)  I didn't catch the comment about the complaint thread, now that's an interesting idea!  I love the anticipation, the trying of new products, the whole shebang.  I love hearing people are loving a new product and then reading reviews on that product and getting it for myself with my points.  I can't wait to hear about which boxes people are getting and what new goody we might have in store for us next.  I agree, lighthearted, exciting and fun is what it's all about for me too.  So many new and fun things Birchbox is doing for it's subscribers, with the amazing Teen Vogue boxes and now the Gossip Girl May boxes?  That's great for us.  Can't wait to peek into those boxes!

I haven't used it yet.  I exfoliated 2 nights ago so I'm giving my skin rest, I have pretty sensitive skin.  The mitt is pretty big at 10" X 6-1/2" and you can slip your hand inside.  I'll probably just use it folded because it swallows up my hand and goes up my arm which I don't like.  It feels like rough fabric, not sure how to describe it really, but nothing like soft microfiber.  I'm pretty sure it'll exfoliate given the feel.  I'll be giving it a go probably tomorrow night and try to post my results.  HTH

What do you think makeup talk is for? Its for us to share our opinions. People have every right to say whatever they feel. You don't have the right to censor people. You can disagree w/ me & that your right to do so. That what this is, a discussion.

I have also tried suggesting other services if they are so dissatisfied, nope, they just keep complaining. I choose to not read those comments now. I like the fun, happy ones. Someone suggested last month a BB complaints thread where they can vent, I wish that would happen and we can all make these BB monthly threads what they are suppose to be: lighthearted, exciting and FUN :)
