Birchbox May 2014 + 100 Bonus Points + Try Free

Birchbox May 2014 – This post contains affiliate links

Birchbox is one of the first subscription boxes. It is only $10.00 a month and you can earn some amazing rewards. I have subscribed to boxes for over a year, but just recently, subscribed.  Each month you will get a box filled with 4-5 beauty, grooming, and lifestyle samples from both up-and-coming and well known brands. Each delivery will include a mix of categories. Samples are generously sized, with enough product to allow you to figure out if they're right for you.  When you sign up, you fill out a beauty questionnaire, so Birchbox can better pick your products.  You can find your profile by clicking on “Account Settings” in your account. Click “Edit Profile,” fill out the questionnaire, and then save your preferences.

So what made me decide to subscribe?  I decided to subscribe based on the amazing points system.  For every 100 points you earn, you get $10.00 to spend in the shop.  There are lots of ways to earn points too!

1.  Subscribe:  When you subscribe, you get 100 points, that's $10.00!  So that makes your first box FREE. Click HERE and use the code BB100 to get 100 bonus points when you sign up

2.  Review Your Products: You get 10 points for every sample review you complete.  Each box contains 4-5 products, so that is around $5.00 in points you can earn monthly!  This makes the box $5.00 a month.

3.  Shop!: For every dollar you spend in the Birchbox Store, you earn 1 point for each dollar spent on full-size products in the Birchbox Shop.

4.  Refer Your Friends: For every friend you refer to Birchbox, you will earn 50 points for every person you refer!

The Details:

Cost: $10.00 a month

Coupon: Click HERE and use the code BB100 to get 100 bonus points when you sign up

What's in the box? Each month you will get a box filled with 4-5 beauty, grooming, and lifestyle samples from both up-and-coming and well known brands.

When am I billed? When you place your order for the monthly membership, you will be billed for your first Birchbox immediately. For the women’s Birchbox, you will be billed on the first day of each month after your first shipment. For the men’s Birchbox, you will be billed on the 15th of each following month.

My Birchbox arrived a bit late again this month.  Customer service emailed and gave me 100 bonus points for the trouble.  That makes this box free!


Inside the cardboard outer box, is a inside brown box.


My first look was bright and cheery.  I love the yellow tissue paper.


Birchbox includes an information card with information about each product and how to use it.  I love that they say how to use the products.  I am a bit of a “newbe” with some beauty products and this helps!


Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm – Coral Crush  $8.00: I love having a lip product in my beauty boxes.  This hydrates you lips with shea butter and gives you a bit of color.  I love this!


Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion $2:53:  This is rich in marine extracts and is paraben free.  This lotion isn't super thick and has a nice smell.  It reminds me of a green tea lotion smell, it smells really good.


Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream – Acai Grapefruit $2.93:  This is a Birchbox exclusive!  It has a sweet candy smell and works great.  It left my legs silky smooth after showering.


Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer, Shampoo, and Conditioner (Primer .93 cents. Shampoo .27 cents. Conditioner .33 cents): This tri is infused with oil and promises to keep color vibrant for twice as long.  I hope this works and I am excited to try it.  This is a pretty nice size sample and will probably last a couple times.


Lifestyle Extra: 32 Oral Care Effervescent Breath Crystals with Iso Voxy $.98: This are like poprocks but freshen your breath.  They came in peppermint and honey mint.  This is really unique!


Birchbox included information to win $1200 of Supergoop and a coupon for $25.00 off a $75.00 from Kate Spade Saturday.


Final Thought: The total value of this box was $15.95.  I also got 50 points for reviewing all the items, which equals $5.00.  Birchbox is such FANTASTIC value, I can't believe I didn't subscribe before.  I am surprised to say, but Birchbox beat my Ipsy this month.  I will use every single product in my Birchbox, and the value of the points just puts it over the top.  If you want to try Birchbox, click HERE and use the code bb100.  You will earn 100 points for signing up, which is $10.00!
