Birchbox Breakdown

Close reading is for English class—not shopping for beauty products. We created this ingredient-conscious collection to save you from squinting at labels. After doing some digging, we learned that the ingredients you’re most concerned about are parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, and GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Good news: You won’t find any of those in here! Even better, these best-in-class products rely largely on natural extracts from flowers, fruits, and veggies. Whether you’re a seasoned ingredient sleuth or simply love a new beauty find, our Free for All box is for you.

How it Works

Every product in this collection is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, and GMOs. You’ll find W3LL PEOPLE’s Hypnotist Eyeliner, an all-natural formula that won’t irritate eyes, but will provide velvety, long-lasting pigment. There’s also Karma Organic Spa’s non-toxic Nail Polish Remover, which dissolves stubborn lacquers without harsh ingredients (or harsh fumes) and a roster of other favorites. Store all your new products in our exclusive FEED 10 Pouch. Created by the humanitarian fashion label, this natural burlap bag gives ten school meals to children globally.

GREAT Deal! Love this Box!
Purchased

This was my first ever subscription box and it has really set the bar high for products from Birchbox. The box was much larger than I expected and the product samples really substantial in size. My review in order of preference:
1. Shamanuti Activated Charcoal Cleanser - I LOVED this cleanser! It's a great cleanser for sensitive fair skin. The product is a pump and the black color was a bit off putting. But, the scent was fresh and it felt great on my face. Wonderful sudsing for an eco product.
2. FEED Pouch - The makeup bag was much more sturdy than I expected. I really love the natural look of it with the decorative blue tassel pull. Plus who couldn't just love the fact that this purchase provided 10 meals!
3. Jurlique Purely Bright Radiance Serum - Loved the packaging of this sample. It's in a heavy duty glass pump bottle. The serum is a white with a thin watery feel. it went on smoothly and absorbed quickly. The smell is fresh and doesn't overbear with my usual moisturizer. I haven't had the opportunity to use this for long, but I'm looking forward to the brightening effect.
4. Eco-Armour Shave with Benefits Shave Foam - Haven't had a chance to use this yet, but I did love the invigorating scent. It would be the perfect AM wake-me-up.
5. Karma Organic Spa Nail Polish Remover - This smells amazing! Never thought I would say that about a nail polish remover. I haven't had a chance to test this out yet, but it was an Allure Editor's Choice.
6. Alima Pure Lip Tint in Rhubarb - This full size lip balm had a surprising chocolate-y scent. It was more silky than I expected and I like the feel of it on my lips. Might purchase this again and will definitely checking the other colors.
7. W3LL People Hypnotist Eyeliner - This full size eyeliner was a great addition. It's a black and nice black color. The pencil will require sharpening. It smudges easily and doesn't seem to set as well as some higher-end products. But still a nice eco version.
8. LOV Organic Tea - I tried one of the teas today, it has a lovely flavor. Subtle and clean. I prefer rooibas tea but this will be a nice addition to my tea collection.

I bought this for myself and love everything that it comes with. I ended up purchasing it as a birthday gift for my best friend who referred me to this site in the first place.

Happy with my purchase
Purchased

I debated for a while if I should order this. I am not sure if it was worth the price, but I did really enjoy getting this and unpacking it. I loved trying the teas and the other products. The cleanser was ok. I would not order it, but will use it when I travel. I like the color of the lipstick, but it it is very fragile. I live in Hawaii, and it is practically melted all the time at our basic room temperature. I like the feed bag. It is spacious enough for all my needs for overnight and short trips.

LOVED this box!
Purchased

There isn't anything in this box that I thought was a dud. The FEED bag is really nice. I love that it has a metal zipper. The nail polish remover works (especially if you let the cotton ball soak on the nail first), and it makes my nails feel nice, not stripped. It smells good too. I loved the charcoal cleanser. My face felt super-clean and didn't irritate. (My skin is sensitive.) The shaving foam works great. If you're on the fence on this box, I say go for it. You won't regret it.

In Love.

I first reached for the eyeliner. I'm a kohl girl and this made my heart sing.
The lipgloss was a perfect nude color with a great smell.
So far I've only drank the red Beauty tea (which was delicious), can't wait to get around to the others.
I'm currently using the FEED bag as my new make-up bag. I get quite a few compliments!

Great idea!
Purchased

Loved the charcoal cleanser and shave foam the most. Feed bag is also adorable and a nice (smaller) size. The Jurlique brightening serum has a stronger smell, but I do not think it is too much- same goes for the Alima lip tint. Well worth the trials!

Loved knowing I didn't have to check the labels
Purchased

I've been wanting to go more organic with what goes on my body. Y'all have made it easy! Not only did I not have to worry about the ingredients but I did not have to buy full sized bottles to try and waste if I didn't like them and got a cute make-up bag to boot!

Fun
Purchased

I'm a sucker for the themed/limited edition boxes. I like to try lots of products for a small price. As far as the individual products, I loved the Shave with Benefits Shave Foam with Mint + Eucalyptus, Jurlique Purely Bright Radiance Serum, Karma Organic Spa Nail Polish Remover with Soybean Oil and Tea Tree Oil, and Shamanuti Activated Charcoal Cleanser. I love the cleanser so much I'll probably buy the full sized one when it's all gone.

I didn't love the W3LL PEOPLE Hypnotist Eyeliner and Alima Pure Lip Tint in Rhubarb. The liptint is a weird texture and has a strange smell (chocolate?) that doesn't go with the lipstick texture. The eyeliner was fine. Nothing I'd buy again.

The FEED 10 Pouch and Løv Organic Tea (muslin tea bags in assorted flavors: Løv is Good, Løv is Pure, Løv is Zen, and Løv is Beautiful) are just okay. Not terrible; not great.

Overall, though, I really enjoyed getting this set.

Great products!
Purchased

After trying all of the products in this box, I cannot pick my favorite. I really love them all and was surprised how long a sample size would last. My skin feels amazingly soft after using the serum and the charcoal cleanser doesn't dry out my skin after washing. Very pleased with this box!
