Hello lovies!! I hope your Saturday is going well, I just wanted to say first, thank you for all the blog love lately, I am trying my best to get back into blogging, and all the support, and love really helps!! I just have to make the commitment again not only with blogging, but all other forms as well, definitely including my youtube channel. I am excited, and it’s going to take some work, but it will be fun! I have lots to get accomplished this weekend, and have some fun blogs coming up for next week as well, so be sure to stop by, and check them out please 🙂 Okay let’s get going on the review this month for November’s birchbox, and why I quit! Yes, you heard that correct, I quit birchbox, no longer subscribed, or I am not renewing my yearly, or monthly any longer.
Here is what is included in my November birchbox
As you can see from the photos it seems like it would be a decent box, but looks can be deceiving unfortunately, and sadly I am very disappointed in this month’s box. The only thing that I was was excited about was the item that I picked this month from my sample choice, which was the Jane Iradale just kissed lip and cheek stain. I love the formula of the stain, but have also received it in one of my birch box’s before. I literally received the smallest samples this month, not what I was expecting, and for the price of $10 per month, I feel like the boxes get worse, and worse. Yes, these are not foil packages, or perfume samples, but I will literally get maybe a few uses out of 3 of the 5 products, very disappointing to say the least. I feel like sometimes birchbox’s are really good, and filled with great decent sized products, but lately they have been going downhill, and getting worse, and worse. Okay, I know that it sounds like I am really talking negatively about it, but I am letting you know the reasons why I am canceling so you can make your own decision based on my opinions, just trying to help 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I have really loved my birchbox subscription for the past 2 1/2 years, and for the most part, I have enjoyed, and used most of the samples that I received.
Another aspect to why I canceled, and what was my favorite part of birchbox, so it was the most disappointing, is the point system change. See, before you would spend $10 per month on the subscription, and you would review on average 4-5 products, and you would receive 50 points per month, which equals $5 per month, then you can use those points to purchase whatever you would like in the birchbox shop, how great is that? I placed many orders with my points, not having to pay anything, which was hands down the best part to birchbox!! Who wouldn’t love free stuff? Anyways, without the amazing point system they took away a couple months ago, it’s just not worth the $10 per month in my opinion. The samples are not significant enough. Although I will miss aspects to birchbox, for example, the brands, and products that I wouldn’t normally get the chance to try, which has been fun, but for $10 per month, I expect more. I am just disappointed in the sample size, and the change in the points system, so I will not continue being a subscriber to birchbox.
I would love to hear your opinion on birchbox, and if your a subscriber, and what you received this month if it was different than mine, etc. Like I said I am canceling birchbox, this will be my last birchbox on the blog. Thank you for reading, sorry if I sounded like a negative nancy, just wanted to keep it real with my readers.
