I can't usually deal with the latter thing you mention, and I've tried this particular product before, and it was fine.  Not something I would buy, but tolerable in the amount in a Birchbox, and now I can cross it off my list of things to try.  As for the former, if you happen to know any guys who do the thing you indicate you don't do, I find that they will almost always take that off your hands.  Even if they don't actively like it, they will try it just out of curiosity.

I like the giving box idea! I will surely use it since I love to give! yay!

post #364 of 2328

I'm actually glad they have the hair powder for another month. It seems like it only came in 1-2 boxes last month and I'm hoping to try it this time around! 

post #365 of 2328

I sure hope our weather cools down by the time I'm supposed to get my box, or the chocolate will make a mess! It's still 85F out and my box usually sits out in the sun the entire afternoon until I can get to it. I don't mind getting them in my box since I know plenty of people that would gladly take them off my hands.

 

I wouldn't mind getting either of the repeats either even though I don't generally use dry shampoo - it'd still be interesting to try though!

I am pretty psyched about almost everything in the video.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I already got the hair powder and Mox in my "extra" box last month, so I don't need them again, but they would at least be useful. I am very curious about the serums, the fragrance, and hair texturizer. I would not say no to the Stila shimmer. And yay for chocolate instead of "food bars."

I wish the products were all in the shop, already, so I could gawk at them. I might buy something untested to use my code this month.

When exactly does the three month code activate, and what is a limited edition box? Does an LE box come like a regular box, or do you have to purchase it in the store? Is it better than normal?

post #367 of 2328

So.. they're using the pillow packs

to send out our samples instead of the regular box? Very Twistband-y!

 I unfortunately had to watch the video with no sound so I have no idea what that first thing was all about...they are putting all of the samples into one of those things?

The LE boxes are separate from the monthly boxes, and they're not very cheap in comparison:  The first one was $38, but it included a full-sized Jouer cream eyeshadow, a full-sized Jean Queen lip gloss, a set of coasters, a 30 ml bottle of Shu Uemura hair serum, and a few other things.  Then there was the Here Comes the Bride box for $55, with a Benefit kit, roll-up ballet flats, a skincare set, and a few other things.  The Birchbox Man program started out as a $45 limited edition box (unfortunately, the link doesn't work any more) with earbuds, Field Notes notebooks, shaving products, toothpaste, a gym bag, and a few other things.  There was another one that I recall as kind of a spinoff of the bridal one, but I can't remember (or dig out of my email archive) anything about it other than that fact that I think it might have had an eyeliner and sunblock.

 

ETA:  Almost forgot!  They do announce the contents of the LE boxes when they announce the boxes, so you will know what is in them before you order them.  Just in case that's a concern, there you go.

From what I understood the little packages are in place of the tissue paper, not in place of the actual box.

I think they're using them instead of the tissue paper that some of the samples get wrapped in.  So a box, in a box...in a box?

I don't think so, it said instead of the tissue paper.  I watched it without sound too, but in the video description below it mentioned it.

I like Mollie's haircut! :)

post #375 of 2328
Ohhh, got it! Thanks, guys! I was a little confused and wondering how that was going to work, fitting all the samples in that little package.
post #376 of 2328

I would not mind more of the Mox lip butter especially since the Pom/Fig is made exclusively for BB. Mox is a great little company out of Portland. I asked for some samples for an event and instead she sent me full size product! I am curious about their solid perfume and might by a sample box. For $9 you can get a sample of each lip butter and each solid perfume. Love supporting the independent business owner.

 

Aside from the Mox, I am not overly wow'd by anything in this month's box like I am with this month's myglam/ipsy. I wouldn't mind seeing what that scent is all about or the One Love Organics.

no no no..You know how your box has the large samples and usually the two tiny samples are wrapped up into tissue paper.  Instead of the tissues paper the tiny samples will be in the little gift box to be reused for someone special.

post #378 of 2328

I have to say, I kind of would love any of those products they showed, since I haven't received any of them before (and they are all things I would use).

 

True story, I am distracted a bit by Mollie Chen's button nipples.

Me too. So jelly of her bangs. I can not pull them off. At all.
post #380 of 2328

I had to go back and watch the video again just to look at the unfortunate button placement.

i had to watch it with no sound too and had NO idea what was up with that little box.

 

but i like the idea! i got an essie shade in my birchbox last month very similar to a zoya polish i had just gotten so i'm gifting the zoya to my aunt when i'm home for thanksgiving, i'll put it in that little box for her, she loves touches like that.

post #382 of 2328

LOL All this talk about nipple buttongate I'm so going to have to watch the video. lol

Loving Mollie's haircut!

Someone really should have mentioned it to her before filming and loaned her a sweater that actually *closed*.  I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't even realize how it looked.  It reminded me of the time I wore a certain Beck t-shirt to a friend's birthday party.  Two turntables and a microphone.  I didn't even *notice* the placement of the turntables -- hello, nipples! -- until he *pointed it out*.  (Fortunately, all of the guys there were gay or friends who knew they couldn't get away with any crap where I was concerned, so I wasn't creeped out.  Just annoyed that I had been wearing the shirt for a few *years* and hadn't noticed before anyone said anything!)

I really hope BB gets better soon! I subscribe to 6 boxes and it is definitely the weakest of all of them, I think. If November and December aren't good I will probably be canceling. The samples are soooo tiny. frown.gif
post #386 of 2328

Wow. Almost everything in that video looks pretty good to me...and I don't think that I have gotten any of them in a box yet. I do have that Oscar Blandi, but I certainly wouldn't mind another. I would love love love to get anything One Love Organics.

Same! I received it in a BB a looong time ago (>6 months ago) and it remains to be the only product I wouldn't mind a double of! Used up my points for a beautyblender, otherwise it would have gone to the full size of that! Great product.

post #388 of 2328

Well kinda happy for chocolate instead of the luna bars or tea. Just my luck I will get another luna.

I got the Mox last month - why feature it this month? Same with the hair powder these are past month items.

 

Really hoping I get spared a perfume sample as well 5 out of my 6 came with one so over perfume samples.

post #389 of 2328

I really hope I don't get another Mox lip balm. I get 2 boxes and I got one for October.. hope November doesn't have another. I really want to cancel because I've been disappointed in the past months but that whole "what if I miss out on something awesome next month" kills me!! I'll probably just finish up the year and that will be that. I've also been waiting for more awesome products to appear in the shop so I can use my points. I remember last year they had a couple of the Stila Holiday sets, crossing my fingers for something like that.

post #390 of 2328

Oh excited about the preview. I did get the hair powder and the Mox lip butter last month. They are great products and I wouldn't mind getting more. icon_cheesygrin.gif
