I have the same shopping mentality as you!  When I'm shopping online it's much easier for me to spend money and I find that I enjoy the anticipation of the package arriving.  When I'm in a store I scrutinize products, think more logically about whether or not I 'really need' the product, and can easily walk away without purchasing anything.  Additionally, if I have the option of spending $6 on either shipping and handling or on a product...the product wins every time.  Finally, if a gift with purchase is involved, it's hard for me to resist!

 

Although perhaps I should cut down on my online spending because my boyfriend's brother came to stay with us for a weekend and he stated, 'I've never seen that many products in a bathroom before...um...where can I put my toiletries?'  We live in NYC, so you can imagine what a small bathroom we have.  blush.gif

I'm excited, but I always am lol. I also love how they are getting more organic/natural products.

wow how many more months are they going put that hair powder in boxes. i really hope i don't get it.

 

glad they're bringing stila back. i've missed getting their products.

post #336 of 2328

Thanks for the link!

Nothing really made me excited for the box, but hopefully I get at least one interesting thing.

post #337 of 2328

Wow I'm extremely thrilled about the chocolate! I know there will be complaints about it, but I'm really obsessed with this stuff and will be happy to see it return to the BB store so I can stock up :)

post #338 of 2328

I'd be happy with any of the products, since none of them would be repeats for me.  I'm really interested in the One Love Organics though.  I had to watch it with no sound, and they don't have it on their website yet, anyone get a better idea of what it was?

i really want to try those body serums!  are those the sizes they're sending out?? they look huge

They just posted this on their blog: 

 

 

We’re excited to share that Birchbox is back to business as usual and fully operational. Our offices are open. Our warehouse is shipping full-size orders on time. Monday has never felt so good!

Full-size orders from the shop are shipping immediately. Our November women’s boxes will begin shipping in waves starting on Wednesday 11/7. We expect 50 percent or more to be out the door by our promised deadline of November 10th. A portion of boxes will ship as late as the 15th of the month. We appreciate your patience as we make up for lost time due to our warehouse’s closure and reduced staffing.

We are so thankful for the support of our customers during this difficult time. We’re extremely proud of the dedication of the Birchbox Team over the past week, working together in a challenging situation to continue service to the best of our ability. We couldn’t be more excited to get back to work delivering you delight and discovery.

Yours,
Hayley, Katia and the entire Birchbox Team

P.S. .Keep an eye out for our exciting holiday launches! We’ll be unveiling the Birchbox Holiday Shop later this week and announcing our latest (very giftable) Limited Edition box shortly!

I'm really curious about the limited edition boxes they are teasing about! I don't remember having them last year. I know there was the bride box and maybe a summer one. Anyone else remember a Christmas box?

post #342 of 2328

I hate to seem picky but I seriously hope I receive something different than whats in the video, none of those products interest me whatsoever. Also, i'm a little annoyed to see the hair powder and mox lip butter since those two products were just in last months boxes, they need to really learn how to space out their repeats. 

 

I am glad to see that they are trying to step their game up with shipping though, despite all that has happened so kudos to them. 

post #343 of 2328

I'm gonna try really hard to not peek at my box before it gets here this month! better stop checking this thread lol
 

post #344 of 2328

At least chocolate is better than Lara bars imo...

post #345 of 2328
Do you get a 20% off code for 9months with Birchbox? What day do the codes usually expire?
I leave Friday on a 10 day trip(that could be extended with last minute stops) and will hopefully have 300 points after my reviews for November.

i tried the chocolates at their sample stop and personally i think they're great :) i was going to include them in my last bb order but they were out so i'm happy

post #347 of 2328

I agree that the chocolate will be 10x's better than those yucky bars

post #348 of 2328

What an unfortunate placement of buttons on her adorable dress! haha

post #349 of 2328

As annoyed as I am that they are repeating certain items from last month, it makes more sense than spacing things out.  I'm assuming they just get a one-time, giant shipment of samples from each company, so if they waited a few months to add them to boxes again they'd just be sitting on a shelf.  At least if I get any of the repeats I know they'll be fresh!  And the fact that they try to avoid sending the same sample to you twice is also comforting.
 

post #350 of 2328

I don't know. Really, the hair powder and Mox crap again?? Absolutely nothing they showed held any interest to me.

post #351 of 2328

wow.  for once i don't think there's anything there i wouldn't use!  i am very excited!  that chocolate is amazing by the way if you haven't tried it.  *to the tweaking of my profiles!*  bandit.gif

My husband interviewed at Chuao for a position as a designer a few years ago. They wanted to pay close to nothing($10 per hour when comparable positions pay $20-$40) and the owner was a total jerk. I remember he was freaking out when he got home by how he was treated and felt insulted by what they wanted to pay for a high level of work. He was so glad to get a better job later that week. With the price they charge for chocolate they should at least pay their employees well.

post #353 of 2328

yay! excited for november after viewing the vdo. I am generally happy with my birchboxes, been a sub for over a year now, I don't always love every thing, but so far so good.

The video identified it as 'aromatic body serum in rose, chamomile, neroli or lavender'.  They said that it's exclusive to birchbox!

 

I'm excited about it too because I haven't tried anything from this company yet.  :D

post #356 of 2328

i think it's funny that they are apologizing as if every other month they HAVE shipped everything by the 10th.

post #357 of 2328

That video looked awesome! I'd literally like to try everything they mentioned. The only thing I'm concerned about is that one of the chocolate bars is maple bacon flavor, and I don't eat bacon, and there's a spicy flavor. I can't tolerate spicy foods. :(
