In case you didn’t know, Birchbox is a $10/month subscription service for at least five sample (sometimes full-sized!) beauty products. If you are interested in subscribing, feel free to use my referral link. I came across this trick on Reddit a while ago to view your samples before you can officially see them on the 10th of each month! For the past couple of months, I have used this trick to look at my samples since I like to know right away. I just viewed my box, so I figured I would share this trick!
Now before you get too excited, note that this link may not work for you. Also, this may not always be accurate. The actual box you receive could be different, so the samples you see through this trick may not actually be what you actually receive. This preview may change as well. For example, while using this trick during an earlier month, this preview listed 7 samples! When I looked again later, it changed to the normal 5.
All you have to do is use a modified URL, making sure to replace the last two digits with the current month. For example, use the link below to try and look at your April box (make sure you are logged in):
Then, you should see something like this:
In the future, just update the year and month at the end of the URL!
According to this, my box for April will consist of the following (in order from left to right of the screenshot):
- Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream
- POP Beauty POP Portfolio Eyeshadow Palette
- Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel
- Obliphica Intensive Hair Serum
- Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain (my sample choice)
I don’t particularly care for the shaving cream and eyeshadow palette, but I may try them out. The peel could be interesting. I have been getting lots of hair products, so I’ll add this serum to the pile. The lip and cheek stain looked interesting, so I hope it will be a good color for me!
