That makes my box total for the month of July $31, which is not bad considering I paid $10. However, considering in the eight months I have subscribed to Birchbox I used eight sample size items and I had three months I gave away my entire boxes, this subscription clearly is not for me. I really tried to love Birchbox because their point system and customer service can't be beat, but I finally decided to cancel this month for good.
What really helped me in deciding if I was going to cancel Birchbox was comparing it to my Ipsy for the month. I also paid $10 for Ipsy but my Ipsy bag retail value was $91.32 not counting the bag itself, and I had three full size items, compared to Birchbox where I had all sample sizes (and small samples at that.) In my Ipsy bag I received three items I will use, as opposed to only two in Birchbox. When I considered all those things, it wasn't a tough choice to make. #TeamIpsy
