Birchbox Upgraded Subscription

Recommended Posts

How do you guys opt out of upgraded add on's I don't see an option to un-enroll on my account?

 

Do I need to email them?  I am supposed to get a mascara this month I don't want another mascara (particularly that I've already sampled) again next month.

Yes, you email the CS to downgrade.

I downgraded via email I told them I didn't want mascara back to back months, particularly mascara we've already sampled.

I'm considering downgrading also. It really hasn't been worth it to me these couple of months. I keep thinking maybe I'll just hang on one more month because I don't want to miss out on anything great but maybe I should just cancel.

I was thinking that too but I don't want mascara every month, and it's one of my favorite cosmetics. If they sent nail polish and lip items in different shades I'd stay signed up. Even if they sent deluxe sized fragrances, hair tie packages, the options are endless but mascara back to back, c'mon

I thought the idea sounded good BUT I would like to be able to choose which two items, say, out of 6 choices (or even 4??) but not just randomly. Birchbox sends me mascara in almost every box for some reason so if I got a box with mascara AND one of the two upgrades was also a mascara, I'd be even more P.O.'d!

Any thoughts on the upgrades this month? They are a water bottle, sunglasses, a beach towel and tattoos. I'm going to skip on the upgrades because I really don't need any of these items. I did consider the water bottle but I have enough water bottles plus the size isn't as big as I usually use.

I want one of the water bottles but I always thing with points, and promotion codes I can get the items for cheaper rather than paying for the upgrade, and not to mention waiting for it to ship!

 

They ship orders very fast, birchboxes  take forever though as I'm still grumpy that I'm waiting on my June box.

The upgrades were packaged in a separate box! Love the new packaging. I'm happy with the items too.

Here are the upgrades that I finally received. A Eyeko mascara and Marcelle eye shadow duo. I'm happy with these.

I got the same as you for my upgrades this month @@Reija! I love the mascara, and have tried it at the beach as it said it was waterproof, and it did pretty good with strong waves! The Dirty Martini eye shadow duo I thought were really good colors, but I am a little disappointed in the pigmentation. I feel that it was kind of funny though for them to send two mascaras in a row.

That's a good point @@Queennie about sending two mascaras in a row. I didn't even think about it. I haven't tried the eye shadow duo yet. Hopefully next month is something different other than mascara or an eye shadow.

Yikes! I hope Birchbox realizes this and does not send us another one for September!

I heard...they will start some new option...did you get to know what that may be...

I'm hoping that the new option could be to pick out a full size makeup item for one set price? Maybe like a $20 subscription where at sample choice you got to choose a full size makeup item? I would rather have that as I actually get to pick, and not get a million mascaras!

I didn't get anymore details. Hopefully we will know more soon. I wonder if it has something to do with their own makeup line that is coming out? Thanks for the info @@Bizgirlva in another thread!

I think lots of changes are in store for Birchbox. Katia talked a lot about content and converting customers. I think Birchbox will be changing a lot from the current model.

I got the same things but different colors @@Bizgirlva . I got the twistick in Pinkmania and the Smith and Cult lip lacquer in hi-speed sonnet. I love them both and have used them almost daily since getting them.

Mine were different, twist stick was rock &'roses and the smith and cult was her name bubbles.

 

The gloss is just ok, I really like the lord & berry twist stick formula.

    • I had such a problem with my ex. She could take my phone without permission and delete those photos where you are other girls. She also deleted the phone numbers of my female work colleagues (sometimes even relatives' phones). I looked stupid when I saw an unfamiliar number later. I don't like to answer unfamiliar numbers if there was no prior agreement about this. Has anyone been in this situation?
    • Hey there, that’s a great question. There are actually many ways to stop splitting ends . I found a video on you tube that explains a few simple ways on how to take care of hair splittings and breakages using home remedies. I have tried many different ways to handle the same problem. Here’s a link to a video that gives some great tips. http://eunsetee.com/EinD Click on the link above and once you land on the page,  click where it says “Please press allow to continue” and then you will be redirected to the YouTube video that shows you what to do. I hope it helps.
