Hahaha it's never too early.... for Birchbox! Ooooh, November might be a *holiday*-type box!  Yay!
I hope so! That would be much needed!

Guh.  I just looked up that scent.  I was thinking something heavily perfumey and heavy on the amber.  I have problems with certain ambers.  But I am a sucker for anything orange blossom.  I might end up getting the full-sized version whether I get it in my box or not.

 

(I really, really hope they don't go with another round of "give this men's fragrance sample to a man in your life!"  I have a weird conspiratorial suspicion that the men's stuff showing up in the plus-2s could be a way for them to test what men's samples get the least pushback when sent to a woman.  I think pretty much anything *but* a fragrance could be given to the guys in my life.  They are all very anti-men's cologne, but shower gel, shaving cream, hair goo, beard oil, unscented/mint/citrus hand cream?  They would not hate that stuff, which is the best I can hope for when it comes to fancy grooming products with these dudes.  It would have been cool if the Chapstick had been sent with the pass-it-along direction next month.  Just about every guy I know is more than happy to receive Chapstick, especially in the winter.  My brother once asked specifically for a Costco pack of the stuff -- original black label version, thankyouverymuch -- for Christmas, and our dad probably went through at least a couple of tubes a month before he retired since he was a timber cutter and outside in the sun/cold all day, every day.  I would have kept it for myself, but that's a whole separate thing.  Another pass-it-on idea, this time not for men:  Two samples of the same, say, shower gel.  Keep one for yourself, pass one on to a friend.)

I'm looking forward to the November box because it's Winter and that means less chance of getting tan towels. I Hope. I keep acquiring them, first in my Birchbox, then as unexpected extras in trades and stuff, and I'm just tired of getting tan towels. If they ever come out with a variety of Comodynes brand I haven't gotten in my Bb, I feel like I will get it that month. But, hey, they trade faster than anything else I've had on my list, so they must work pretty well. November really seems like the most likely month they wouldn't send tan towels, so I'm very optimistic about next month's box.

I'm where you are. All the men in my life hate cologne. So the last two times I got them they went totally to waste. When it comes to skin care products, my fiance is always eager to try out the new things I get, though.

Samesies. My boyfriend really likes smelling cologne in those fold outs in Esquire (its how he found his favorite!) or by just smelling when he's being a good shopping buddy and going to Sephora with me. He did love the Chapstick in the October box so that's already found a nice pocket to live in forever. He is really into whatever men's samples come in as extras in trades or if I come across randomly.

    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
    • Yeah I totally agree  that the trends of fashion of clothes is growing with the passage of time so it's needed for everyone of clothes as make your appearance very obvious and awesome ..
    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
