What do Mumsnet users think?

“I have subscribed in previous years to similar services and found Birchbox to be the best by far. More thoughtful in design and contents. I have really enjoyed my experience with Birchbox and would thoroughly recommend.”

“I loved having a surprise through the post and then taking the time to read up about each product before having a mini pampering session; experimenting with new techniques and looks.”

“Being able to try new products before you commit to a big size from a shop. It was great to be introduced to new brands and have some new items I might not have chosen for myself.”

“My favourite experience of Birchbox was simply taking an hour or so with each box and experimenting and pampering. It was nice to have some quiet time to myself and feel refreshed. I would certainly recommend to friends and family and it is also a perfect gifting subscription.”

“Birchbox is a great way to discover new brands and products because I normally stick to what I’m familiar with. I hadn’t heard of Dr.PAWPAW, Paul & Joe, NUXE as well as a few more, but thanks to trying these products and liking them I will look at these brands further.”

"Each box is like a gift and a happy surprise.”

“My favourite product has to be the Polar Night Cream. It left my sensitive, flaky, blemish prone and hormonal pregnant skin feeling amazing. It goes on so smoothly, taking little time to soak in without leaving a greasy residue. My face has been rehydrated and hasn’t looked this glowing in years.”

“I was intrigued when I saw the Schmidt’s natural deodorant as it’s not something that I’d usually buy nor would I shop somewhere that stocks such things. Being 28 weeks pregnant, I am beginning to think about breastfeeding and was worried about having a heavily scented and chemical based product so close to my newborn. The roll on deodorant applies very smoothly and smells very fresh but not overpoweringly so. It stood the test of me dashing about doing the school run in a thick jumper without leaving sweat patches or any unpleasant odour – a real winner, I love it.”

“Some of the items I wouldn’t of even thought to search for because I didn’t know they existed which is what is great about Birchbox. It gives you new experiences.”

"I loved that the boxes are designed to be reused."
