October Birchbox Sample Choice Comparison

For those of you not familiar with sample choice, it’s a program that began last August where Birchbox subscribers have the option to select a sample to be included in next month’s box. Each month 3-4 samples are revealed and the sample you pick will replace one of your traditional 5 samples. This month, Birchbox subscribers have the chance to choose from a wild 5 samples, or select one of two curated boxes. This is a comparison of those options based on research I’ve done using other blogs and my own calculations. This month I’ve taken all of my images as screenshots from the official Birchbox video.

First, the sample options. This month’s theme is “The Power of Beauty,” and the boxes were inspired by October being breast cancer awareness month. The sample options are all mascaras.

February Birchbox Sample Choice Comparison

For those of you not familiar with sample choice, it’s a program that began last August where Birchbox subscribers have the option to select a sample to be included in next month’s box. Each month 3-4 samples are revealed and the sample you pick will replace one of your traditional 5 samples. This month, Birchbox subscribers have the chance to choose from 3 samples, or select a box curated by a guest editor. This is a comparison of those options based on research I’ve done using other blogs and my own calculations. This month I’ve taken all of my images as screenshots from the official Birchbox video.

First, the three sample options. Last month these were all lotions, so I’m glad to see some variety again! The three sample choice options are all completely new samples, which I’m also definitely excited about.

January Birchbox Sample Choice Comparison

For those of you not familiar with sample choice, it’s a program that began in August where Birchbox subscribers have the option to select a sample to be included in the next month’s box. Each month 3-4 samples are revealed and the sample you pick from that selection will replace one of your traditional 5 samples. This month, Birchbox subscribers have the chance to choose from three samples, or select one of two curated boxes.

First up, the three sample options. They’re all lotions this month, which personally makes me sad because I don’t need any more body lotion, and none of them seem that new and amazing.
