Sample Choice, Guest Editor, and Featured Boxes: What You Need to Know

What are the different options to customize my Birchbox?

Every month, every subscriber has access to: Sample Choice, or the option to choose a sample in their box; Guest Editor or featured boxes, which are curated Birchboxes that each include the same assortment of products; and Birchbox Plus, lifestyle products you can add to your shipment at an exclusive price.

Cool! When are all the options announced?

We reveal the samples, as well as any Guest Editor or featured boxes, and Birchbox Plus, in our the Sneak Peek video.

How do I pick a sample or a Guest Editor or featured box?

Our Aces, members of the Birchbox VIP program, and subscribers who invite a friend within the calendar month will get priority access. This month, the early access emails will go out on May 26. If you want early access, you can invite a friend up until May 25. Everyone else will receive their email on May 27. Note: You must make your choice by the end of the day!

What if I dont choose a sample or a Guest Editor or featured box?

No matter what, you'll get an awesome Birchbox with five beauty samples picked to suit your profile. Because we know, sometimes you just want to sit back and let the surprises come to you!

What about Birchbox Plus?

Every month we offer a selection of full-sized lifestyle products (think: necklaces and candles) at a special discounted price for our subscribers. Keep an eye out for your Birchbox Plus email. If you select a Birchbox Plus item, your pick will arrive with your monthly Birchbox, at no extra shipping cost.
