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 box for my step mom who likes organic, natural beauty products. She really liked all the products it contained.

Bought this for my mother-in-law and she loves it. I want to steal the cosmetics bag and the lip tint from her!

Love it. Worth it.
Purchased

Love the products. Love the giving back to charity. The shave cream smells great and feel nice on my skin even after shaving - no post-shaving lotion required. The teas are delicious. The eyeliner is smooth, color-rich, and all-day lasting (with no flaking off). The lip tint is a great color and doesn't taste badly when I lick my lips. Would recommend it as s gift.

What a great value!
Purchased

In this awesome box, I got to try a bunch of different natural products that I would not have been able to otherwise--because they are individually so expensive! I did some rough math, and the value of the products is more than double what this entire box costs.

The eyeliner and lip balm are both full-size products, and with the FEED 10 bag, the box is almost already paid for. On top of that, you get the Jurlique serum (which is half the size of the expensive full-size product), and now the box is paid for PLUS some.

My favorite products so far are the charcoal cleaser, the eyeliner, the lip balm, and the serum. The lip balm is kind of chocolatey, and the shade is very complimentary to my skin tone.

I must also say something about the packaging. This is my first limited-edition box from Birchbox, and I LOVE the actual box as well as the box in which it was shipped. The outer box is my new "to-file" box... It's the perfect size for tri-folded bills. I mean, with a box full of eco-friendly products, I should re-use the (extremely attractive minus the sticker) shipping box, too, right?

I love this box. It makes me want to try more limited-edition boxes, too.

Great box!
Purchased

Have wanted this forever & finally pulled the trigger! The feed pouch is awesome! Super sturdy & a really great size (larger than I thought it would be). The well people eyeliner is a little dryer than I would like but still has great pigmentation. Love the color of the Alima lip balm, don't know if mine was "spoiled" but it's kinda grainy & tastes gross. The nail polish remover is fantastic & smells awesome! Did not like the tea but it is such a cool packaging, just didn't suit my tastes. Love the shaving foam, a little different but it works great. Have decided that while I love the idea of all natural products, they are just not for me.

Absolutely love this set! The bag is adorable and very good quality. Everything smells so nice and I love that the items are chemical free. The samples are larger and much better than I expected! Thinking of buying another as a gift.

LOVE this life changing bag!
Purchased

Okay, I am a skin perfectionist. I have tried many serums, cleansers, etc and this bag introduced me to my new all time favorite product EVER: Shamanuti Activated Charcoal Cleanser. I love the smell and this is the most amazing, gentle and effective cleaner I have ever found. I will be buying this product for life.

I also loved the Jurlique Purely Bright Radiance Serum. Serums in general are a go to for me and the quality, smell and effectiveness of this product was amazing. I will be buying the full size when I run out. The bag itself it cute, study and socially responsible- who wouldn't love it? The shower foam has a pleasant smell and was effective---and natural! I will most likely buy the full size.
The Karma Organic Spa Nail Polish Remover smells good and works pretty well, but it wouldn't take off my glitter polish (I had to use acetone for that). Not sure if I would buy the full size. The Alima Pure Lip Tint in Rhubarb I am not a fan of. The coco scent is a bit weird and the texture is gritty. The color is okay, but I have other products I like better. Also, the W3LL People Hypnotist Eyeliner was less than impressive. The color wasn't very intense and it wasn't smooth going on. Eco is great, but I need products that work. As for the tea, who does love tea? The LOV Organic Tea was great.
