We know you love diving into samples as much as we do, and the Mystery Sample Pack gives you the chance to try some of our favorite products. Receive two samples for free by spending $35+ on any full-size products from the shop. It includes one deluxe sample and one standard sample that we’re especially excited about right this minute, and here’s the really fun part: Their identities will remain secret until you receive your order. Alternatively, you can purchase this mysterious sample duo on its own for $10.
I hope no one actually spends money on this. I added this to my order after spending $35+, so I figured I might get a few samples. I wasn't expecting to be amazed by any means. However, what I received was a huge let down and almost a little deceptive. I was expecting to get something valued around $10, instead I got one sample size refresher for clothes (essentially a scented piece of fabric). So glad I did not pay for this or else I would have been even more upset. Some of the things I have received in my Birchbox boggle my mind (pencils, playing cards). I truly hope Birchbox steps up it's game.1
I've gotten this twice when I've spent $35. Don't expect much - but they'll throw in 2 additional samples. Which is a nice bonus. They should just add this into every purchase of $35 or more, but having to add it in is not a big deal. Just don't spend the $10 on it.5
I saw the mixed reviews and thought what the heck - I'll give it a try. I got a pack of cards and sample size Proraso shaving cream. Awesome right? Only issue is that I got the pack of cards in my monthly box before and I use the Proraso shaving cream off and on already.
Why would I need to sample two things that I already have? I would think they could check their database and send me fresh samples instead of making this "bonus" not worth it.
I went out on a limb and purchased the box.. It was a letdown. The soap and small sample of face oil was nice. But also got some tea packets, which I thought was random.3
I was not expecting to receive two teas as a sample. I do not think that is a good mystery sample to receive. It was free so I am not going to complain any more.1
One of the greatest things about Birchbox is the SIZE of their samples....Most places will give you those tiny little "packets." But I just received two samples that would be considered "deluxe size". I received the Ursa Major face wash, Baxter of California facial scrub (something that I purchased in the full size.....definitely worth it!), and then got a pack of loose leaf teas! Very satisfied and happy about these samples! Keep up the great work, Birchbox!!!5
The Mighty Leaf Tea (3-pack) was really delicious, especially over the cold weekend we just had. I made several cups of tea from 1 bag and enjoyed them each all day long. The face oil was a tease, because it had such promise! My boyfriend used it right after a shower/shave, and his face was crazy-smooth. But a couple days later we noticed minor breakout along his jawline, and while this could have been caused by other factors I think we'll just stick to his usual routine, since he has otherwise perfect skin.3
But a mystery box is uncertain by its very title! Mine was a bar of soap and a sample of cologne. I'll use the soap, probably not the cologne.4
I love the idea of a mystery package but the items I received were lackluster. May try one agin in future to see if I get something better.2
It turned out to be two samples. It was disappointing. While I am sure the stuff is great, not as impressive as getting your regular Birchbox. They should rewrite the description to reflect expectations.2
