I loved this at first, but it got quickly redundant and wasteful. Too much perfume. Too much packaging.

I never received anything in my Birchbox I found worth using. In fact, I felt like the box was kind of a waste of paper and plastics and felt bad getting it until I eventually canceled. I did end up giving out a lot of the samples to my younger cousins.

I use to be really into trying new products. in 2020, I really simplified my skincare routine and wear minimal products now. However, I first started this to learn about new brands. What I struggled with is using all the samples in the box that lead to waste. Also, if I was given a lipstick or makeup that I don’t use - I felt cheated out of a sample. Maybe good for those still trying to figure out what they like.

At one point I would have considered myself to be a "makeup person," especially when I was subscribed to Birchbox. It was fun to receive a package every month with a handful of new brands and sample products to try. However, I rarely found myself actually using these products. Perfume/scent is a very personal preference (I also selected that I didn't want these, but continued to receive). How many highlighters does one need? My friends have similar experiences - you accumulate so many of these smaller sample sizes and never really use them. Often they end up in the trash.

The brand needs to think about sustainability and the planet going forward. Not sure what that will look like for them though, as their business thrives on the subscription kits.

The subscription may be good for gifting and those who love trying new products, but personally not for me and only accumulates waste.

Gorgeous boxes with a range of innovative and exciting brands. These also make for great gifts for girlfriends that love beauty products and want to try out a bunch of new brands.

It would be good to tailor the boxes by specific interest/beauty concerns
