Every month, you'll receive a box filled with beauty, grooming, and lifestyle samples from both up-and-coming and well known brands. Each delivery will include a mix of categories, as well as lifestyle items. Samples are generously sized, with enough product to allow you to figure out if they're right for you. You'll also want to take advantage of Birchbox.com, which is packed with product information and tips, including expert interviews, helpful tutorials, and engaging videos.
Woohoo! You’ve taken the first step to discovering new beauty and grooming products. Birchbox recurring subscriptions are offered on a first come, first served basis. The average wait is 4 weeks for us to reach out to you via email with a link to claim your subscription. In the meantime, create an account and check out our site.
Your profile will become available as soon as you have placed a successful subscription order. This profile is a short questionnaire regarding your beauty/grooming preferences that will help us send you the boxes that are the best fit. 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. Please note that some questions allow you to choose multiple answers.
Boxes always contain samples from a mix of different categories (skincare, haircare, fragrance, lifestyle, etc.). There is no option to opt out of a given category. We're a full discovery service and experimentation is part of the fun! When it comes to specific products within these categories, we do our best to match to your individual needs such as your style and skin type. To receive samples suited to your preferences, please fill out your beauty/grooming profile. Get ready to discover!
Nope—all you pay is your subscription fee. There are no shipping or handling fees for the monthly Birchbox. Please note that in NY, NJ, MA and VA sales tax may apply.
Updating your address is easy! Simply log into your account at birchbox.com. You will see a link on your "My Account" page with the heading "Manage Addresses." Click on this link, enter your new information, and hit save. Please note that address changes for women's subscriptions must be received before the 25th of the month prior to shipment. For men's subscriptions, all address changes must be received before the 10th of the month prior to shipment.
Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to place subscriptions on hold. If you need to skip a month or two, you can cancel your monthly recurring subscription at any time and replace your order immediately when you are ready to begin receiving boxes again.
You may cancel your monthly recurring subscription at anytime; however, your first shipment cannot be canceled and is nonrefundable.
Check your order confirmation for an estimated shipping date. Your first Birchbox will probably arrive the month after you place your initial subscription order. All Birchboxes ship from our East Coast facilities and should arrive an estimated 5-10 business days after they ship. You will receive an email with a tracking number so you can follow your box's progress.
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.
Updating your billing information is easy! Simply log into your account at birchbox.com. You will see a link on your "My Account" page with the heading "Update Subscription Billing Info." Click on this link, enter your new information, and hit save. Done! If you do not see this option in your account, please give us a call at 877-487-7272 M-F from 9a-5p EST.
All annual subscriptions automatically renew at the end of every 12-month period so that you'll never miss a box (except gift subscriptions—see next question). We'll remind you via email when the auto-renew is about to happen. You can opt out of auto-renewal at any time—simply log into your account at Birchbox.com and click the "Opt-out" link on the My Account page. You may also call us at 877-487-7272 to opt-out of yearly auto-renewal.
If you have a gift subscription, it will be terminated after you receive your last box. After your last box is received, you can re-subscribe and become a regular recurring subscriber. If you already have an account, log in to Birchbox.com and go to the ‘join’ tab to re-subscribe. Don’t hesitate to call us at 877-487-7272 for assistance or to place your order over the phone.
Birchboxes cannot be exchanged and are nonrefundable. If you have received a damaged or defective item in your shipment, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 877-487-7272 M-F from 9a-5p EST or write to us at email@example.com.
Monthly members can cancel their Birchbox subscription at any time. There are no cancellation fees. Simply go to your Account page and look for the 'Cancel Subscription' link under Birchbox Membership Details. Click to submit your cancellation. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel. For the women’s subscription, monthly re-billing occurs on the first of each month after you receive your first Birchbox. For the men’s subscription, monthly rebilling occurs on the 15th of every month after you receive your first Birchbox. If you would like to cancel your monthly subscription, make sure to send in your cancellation request before 12 AM Eastern Standard Time on the DAY BEFORE rebilling, otherwise you will continue to be billed for the following Birchbox. Yearly subscribers may cancel only during the first month of their subscription. After this date, yearly subscribers are not eligible to cancel their subscription. Yearly subscribers may choose to opt out of auto-renew by clicking the 'Opt Out of Auto Renewal' link on the Account page under Birchbox Membership Details. This link is available during the final month of your annual subscription. To opt out earlier, contact us at 877-487-7272. This will prevent your annual subscription from automatically renewing at the end of the year.
At any point in the month, the monthly/yearly recurring subscriptions will say "processing." This is the status of your subscription, not your shipping status. Each month we will send you an email confirmation with your monthly tracking number. When your subscription is cancelled, that original order will then say "closed."
We currently ship only to the United States, its territories, and APO Boxes. Boxes are sent via the US Postal Service and UPS Mail Innovations. Every month, once your box is sent you'll receive an email with your tracking number so you can follow your box's progress to your door! With both services, the post office drops off the box without signature confirmation. Please note: shipments to APO Boxes will take an extra 4-6 weeks to be delivered. To find out more about our Shipping Guidelines, you can click here.
Birchbox for women measures 7" x 5" x 2". Birchbox Man measures 8" x 5.5" x 2.5". Full-size shipments will vary in size!
Birchboxes are like magazines—they arrive once a month! Look to your order confirmation to reference the date your first Birchbox will ship. For the women’s Birchbox, all subsequent boxes will ship from our facilities around the 10th day of the month as long as your membership is active. For the men’s Birchbox, all subsequent boxes will ship around the 25th of the month. You can expect your shipment to arrive 5-10 business days after it's shipped. We will always provide you with Birchbox tracking information.
To ensure we can deliver your gift in a timely manner, the first Birchbox of any gift subscription is always a “welcome” box. These boxes ship from our facilities via Newgistics. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 877-487-7272.
Yes! With every Birchbox and full-size order that we ship to you, you will receive tracking information via email upon its shipment. You can locate your Birchbox tracking information in your Account Settings by logging into your account. Your box's tracking information will display alongside your Birchbox subscriptions. Your Birchbox will be shipping through UPS Mail Innovations and then USPS once it reaches your local post office.
Full-size orders will be shipped via Newgistics.
You can make changes to your billing and shipping addresses in your account page underneath your membership status. Please note that the address your Birchbox will ship to is the default shipping address in your account, and not the address reflected in your order. For women’s subscriptions, make sure to make all address changes (and credit card changes if necessary!) by the 25th day of the month. For men’s subscriptions, be sure to do so before the 10th of each month. Billing and printing of labels start a few days before the first and the 15th of the month, respectively, for each subscription. If you haven't made address changes by the deadline, your Birchbox will go to the previous address we had on file for you.
We know you love your samples, so we want to make it easy for you to order full-size versions. Every month, all the Birchbox Monthly Picks, the products sampled in that month's batch of Birchboxes, ship for free (minimum order quantity conditions may apply to some products). You have a full month to get free shipping on full-size versions of these samples. For women’s subscriptions, the promotion lasts through the 10th day of the month after you received your box. For men’s subscriptions, the promotion lasts through the 25th day of the month after the box is received. In addition, any order $50 and over always ships for free—even if the products are not Birchbox Monthly Picks. All other orders that do not qualify for free shipping will ship for a flat fee of $5.
Oops! If you forgot to include an item in your order, give us a call immediately: 877-487-7272. As long as the items haven't been shipped, we should be able to include them in the original order.
Yes! Our partnership with UPS allows us to have full-size products in your hands the business day after your order was placed. When an order is placed by 6am M-F, it will ship that day, arriving the following business day. Unfortunately we do not offer expedited shipping for your monthly Birchbox.
To make your Birchbox shopping experience even more enjoyable, we have streamlined our shipping rates: next day delivery is $22 through UPS for your full order (regardless of quantity or value) and second day delivery is $15. UPS Ground service is $7. You will receive a confirmation email after your order has shipped containing a UPS tracking number that you can use to track your shipment’s journey. It may even arrive before you’ve opened your email!
The surprise is part of the fun! That's why we keep the products secret until you receive them. Still curious? Check out the list of our brand partners and products in the Birchbox Shop to get a sense for what we have sent in the past.
Oh no!! If your sample is damaged or missing, please write to us at email@example.com or give us a call toll free at 877-487-7272. We will help you out!
Yes we do customize the boxes — that's why filling out your Profile is so important! Some samples are sent to everyone—these products are chosen carefully to ensure that they'll work for a wide range of styles, skin types, and colorings. Other samples are chosen specifically for your beauty and grooming needs. We are also truly committed to never sending you the same sample twice! Please contact us if this happens.
We hope you do! But if you don't, please tell us. Feedback is important to us and we promise to respond. In the meantime, pass the samples on to some lucky friends!
We won't leave you high and dry! Birchbox.com has detailed information on how to get the most out of your samples. In the Shop section of our site, visit the product page for your sample and read the 'How It Works' and 'How to Use' sections. You'll also see links to relevant videos and articles. Visit the Magazine section for even more beauty and grooming inspiration: interviews, editor picks, pro tips, and tons of how-to videos.
You can buy full-size versions of your sample in the Birchbox shop. You earn a point for every dollar spent and 100 points translates to $10 to spend on more full-size products. Learn the details and more ways to earn points here.
We try our best to only send you products that fit your beauty/grooming needs, skin color, and hair type. Fill out your profile to ensure that we can pick samples that will work for you.
Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee that your box won't contain any specific products or ingredients. Because we take allergies seriously and we don't want to over-promise and under-deliver, we cannot accommodate allergies. We understand if that makes it hard for you to begin or continue our service, but we hope you'll stick with it and we encourage you to give the occasional trouble products away to a friend! If you do have known allergies to certain products/ingredients, we highly suggest that you first check the product's ingredients before you test out your sample. A list of ingredients can be found on every product's page in our Birchbox Shop.
We strive to be an environmentally responsible company. We offset the carbon emissions from our shipment, use recycled packaging and often sample organic and all-natural products. Unfortunately, we cannot promise to deliver only eco-friendly samples at this time.
It's easy! For every 100 points you earn, you get $10 off a full-size product order. You can check your points any time by logging in to your account.
There are many ways to earn Birchbox Points. You receive 1 point for each dollar spent on full-size products in the Birchbox Shop. If you're a Birchbox monthly subscriber or yearly member, you can invite friends to join Birchbox with your unique friend referral link and you'll receive 50 points for each friend that signs up after their first box has shipped. You'll also receive 10 points for every product review you complete.
If your Birchbox Points go unused, they will expire a year from the date that they were earned. For example, if you earned your points on January 1st, 2013, they will expire on December 31st, 2013.
So sorry! We are no longer able to transfer points between accounts. Each point awarded is account specific and they are nontransferable.
Upon your initial purchase, you will earn 10 points for your women's recurring subscription and 20 points for your men's recurring subscription. You will not automatically receive 10 (women's) or 20 (men's) points, respectively, in the subsequent months of your membership. Instead, you can earn 40+ points each month by filling out the product reviews.
Yes! You will be able to leave reviews on all full size products that you receive with your gift subscription. This is limited to products that come with the Ultimate Collection gift subscription and any full-size gifts that you receive with your Welcome Box.
Your 50 Birchbox points will be updated automatically by the end of the same month that your referred friend receives their first Birchbox. Thanks for spreading the word about Birchbox! Please note: friend referral points are only valid towards monthly and yearly recurring subscriptions purchased. Gift subscriptions do not apply.
Redeeming your Birchbox Points is easy! Simply add items to your shopping cart, and click the 'Check out' button (if you're not already signed in, the next screen will prompt you to sign in to your account). Continue through the checkout process. When you get to the Payment Information section, you'll see a box that that says 'Use my rewards points.' When you click it, your points will be used and the dollar value will be deducted from your order total. Done! Visit our Birchbox Points page to see a screenshot. Please note that Birchbox Points can only be used in increments of 100 (ie: 200 Birchbox Points will be applied to cover a purchase of $16.99).
The $10 reward can only be applied to full-size products, gift cards, and gift subscriptions. Points and/or store credit cannot be applied to monthly or yearly subscription orders.
You'll receive 10 Birchbox points for each eligible sample review. Your account will be updated within 1-2 business days with your points. Please note that to be eligible to receive points for your reviews: 1) You must be a current monthly or yearly member in good standing; and 2) You must have received the product sample from Birchbox; and 3) You must fill out the review within the 30 day sample window (ie: for women, from June 10th-July 10th for the June Birchbox; for men, from June 25th-July 25th).
Yes, you can leave reviews for your first month's samples. However, because so often Birchbox gifts are meant to arrive as a surprise, we keep the Welcome Box hidden from your preview to avoid ruining anything! Once you have redeemed your gift subscription, please expect your first preview to become available in 10 business days. Once it is available, you will be able to leave reviews and earn Birchbox Points!
Reviewing your samples is easy! Just log on to your Birchbox account, and click on Box in the main navigation bar. From there, you should see a list of your Birchbox contents for the month. Click on the corresponding product link for which you wish to review. The link will bring you to a product page where you'll see a 'Review' link on the lower right hand side of the page. Please keep in mind that reviews are only accepted during the month in which the product is being sampled (ie: for women, from June 10th-July 10th for the June Birchbox; for men, from June 25th-July 25th). After the month ends, the products are no longer eligible for review.

Writing a review couldn't be easier. Full-size products in the Birchbox Shop may be reviewed at any time, regardless of whether you've sampled or purchased them through Birchbox. All reviews must comply with our review guidelines. To write a review, visit the product detail page for the item you wish to review. Then:
Once submitted, each review is processed and may take up to 72 hours to become available on Birchbox. Approved reviews are published along with profile information, such as hair color and skin type, if you have chosen to share your profile. Content is rejected for being irrelevant, offensive, promotional in nature, inclusive of links or otherwise inappropriate for publication. If a review is overly focused on the sample instead of the product attributes that may be rejected as well.
Reviews may not be edited at this time.
Please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and supply your customer details (either email or nickname) as well as the product reviewed. Your review will be removed within 2 business days.
Your nickname is the public name you associate with your public contributions to Birchbox, including Customer Reviews. You are asked to pick a nickname the first time you write a review. Nicknames are not required to be unique; they may be either your real-world name or a pseudonym. To edit your nickname, please contact us by email on email@example.com and supply your customer details (either email or nickname) and your preferred nickname. Your nickname will be updated within 2 business days.
Reviews will always display using your nickname. Your nickname may be a real name or a pseudonym.
Each review is processed to ensure inappropriate content is not posted on Birchbox. Processing may take up to 72 hours. Once completed your review will be available on Birchbox.
You may review each sample you receive once. If you receive a variation of the same product in a subsequent Birchbox you will be able to review the sample again. Full-size products may only be reviewed once each. Reviews of samples do not affect this count.
You will continue to leave feedback on sampled products via the product survey. You earn 10 points for every eligible product review completed. To be eligible to earn 10 points, you must be a current monthly or yearly member in good standing; you must have received the product sample from Birchbox; and you must fill out the review within 30 days of receipt of your sample. Reviews submitted after 30 days of receipt of your sample, or prior to a product being sampled, are not eligible to earn points. No points are earned when submitting a full-size product review.
Your profile is shared because you gave Birchbox permission to use your profile information when posting reviews publicly. This permission was granted either by selecting the 'Profile Sharing Permission' checkbox when leaving feedback or by setting your profile sharing in your account.
Your profile sharing settings are accessible through your account on Birchbox. In your account settings select 'Edit your profile sharing settings' and update as appropriate. If choosing to share your profile the following attributes are displayed:
Your previous sample reviews are being displayed because you gave Birchbox permission to share your historical reviews with the Birchbox community as a public review.
At this time, only a single profile is available for each account. Each profile is capable of only one nickname and all reviews must be posted using this nickname.
