The definition of Deluxe: "sumptuous, luxurious, of a superior kind". Birchbox needs to read that definition! The samples I received almost need a magnifying glass to see them. I started the subscription a month ago and they were wonderful to get my first one to me very quickly. My second one came in less than a month-another surprise.
The other surprise in both boxes is that only one sample might be considered "Deluxe"-and that would be a stretch.
I waited until the second box to cancel as I wanted to give them another chance due to the great reviews on other sites.
I had paid for a yearly subscription up front. I should have read the terms and conditions! With a yearly subscription you MUST cancel within a month of ordering or no refund!
It was next to impossible to find out how to unsubscribe-a running theme with Beauty Boxes. If you Google it they give you instructions that sound easy-and they are impossible to complete. I finally got someone from Birchbox on chat and in the end I had to text that I would dispute the charge with my Amex on the grounds that they misrepresent their products. And Viola! It's cancelled.
So far, ipsy and Birchbox are tried and not true-ipsy just puts you on a "wait list" forever so you are paying for product you never get.
The last two yet to be tried are yet to come-and I'm now dreading it.
