Birchbox gives at least five beauty samples each month for $10. For every review I give, I get 10 points, which is equal to $1 in the shop. A five sample box like this one gets me $5 back. I also “shared” my box on Facebook (only I can see it) for an extra 10 points. That will give me a total of $6 back to redeem toward future purchases. You can read my detailed overview of the program for more information. Each month, you get a sample choice or you can select the guest editor box. This month, I selected the Coola makeup setting spray.
This was my fourth Birchbox for August. Anyone thinking that is excessive is right. It was the first and hopefully last time I received that many different boxes. There have been two months I received a replacement box giving me four (June and July), but the replacements were duplicates of the box with the damaged item. Box One, Box Two, and Box Three were different.
