Birchbox Breakdown

When the weather outside is frightful (and even when it’s not), this box has all of the essentials to keep you feeling cozy, pampered, and, we’ll admit, a wee bit nostalgic for your snowsuit days. So go ahead—slip on some comfy socks, break out the board games, and thank goodness for central heating. A $105 value!

How it Works

This box is brimming with crowd-pleasing treats to last you all season. A pair of ultrasoft Combed Cotton Socks from Swedish designer Happy Socks® will keep your tootsies warm and spirits high. Rustle up some hot cocoa with Askinosie Chocolate®’s Single Origin Cocoa Powder, and be sure to top it off with Three Tarts’ delicious cinnamon Gourmet Marshmallows. JONATHAN ADLER’s extralong Fireplace Matches are perfect for a hearth but work just as well on (MALIN+GOETZ)’s richly scented votive candle. Grab a buddy and settle in for a little friendly competition with the Scrabble® Birchbox Edition Mini Game Set. We’ve also included a roster of restorative skincare, from Chantecaille’s gentle Flower Infused Cleansing Milk and Jasmine & Lily Healing Mask to Mox Botanicals’ silky Body Soak and L'OCCITANE’s Shea Butter Hand Cream. And we didn’t forget about your lips—S.W. Basics’ Organic Lip Balm keeps them chap-free both at home...and when you finally venture outdoors.
This is the first thread that I created so I hope that I did this correctly. Just happened upon this Limited Edition Box.

Fun!  The Scrabble looks super fun.  The socks cozy. The matches are adorable.

I just got mine and I got the two variations I wanted on the lip balm and candle, I'm so pleased! If anyone has a cannabis candle they don't want, please let me know...I love it!

I purchased this box as a gift for my mother, and I know that she is going to love it! I thought the packaging was beautiful.

 

The only downside is I got the Cannabis candle, which I know she is going to hate. It isn't the smell--it is actually quite nice--but as a former D.A.R.E. police officer I just know she will not be impressed. If anyone would like to trade their Rum candle for my Cannabis, let me know.

I'm a little disappointed with my Snow Day box. I didn't get the variation I wanted (M+G rum candle and peppermint lip balm). No pretty tinsel packing material and one of the Chantecaille samples was replaced. It's inconsequential in the grand scheme of things, but small things like that bug me.

That's odd that the advertised products weren't what you ended up receiving.  Sorry to hear that!  Which Chantecaille item did they replace, and what was the replacement item you received in its place?

This happened to me too, I received two cleansers but no mask. I really wanted to try the mask, it was the main reason I bought the box. Also, the top of my box looked like someone stepped on it but the outer packaging had not been damaged. I am a little disappointed with this box, usually the LE Home boxes are so wonderful.

I just got my Snow day box, and thought oh no I got two cleansers too. When I looked it is one of each. Apparently they changed the mask container. 

I think I like the box though except the matches. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them :confused:

I just got my Snow Day box today! I got one of the masks-which I'm happy about, but that stinks for the other people who received two cleansers. But I got the cinnamon chapstick and Cannabis candle--I was really hoping to get the peppermint chapstick and the Rum candle-but oh well, it will be fun trading!

Use them for candles! I know they are meant for fireplaces, but they serve the same purpose. The container can be reused as well. It'll look cute on your nightstand. :)

 

I received my box today and I love everything except the candle. I got cannibis and while it doesn't smell like cannibis, it is too potent for me. I'm am prone to migraines and it's giving me a headache without even taking it out of the container. I'd love to trade for Dark Rum. I also wouldn't mind trading for a different print of the socks as well. What types of variations in the socks did everyone get?

I received my box!

Although the packaging looks different, I did receive the cleanser and the mask. I love face masks so I'm looking forward to trying it! I received the Cannabis candle, which just smells manly so I gave it to my bf. I'm really happy with everything and can't wait to try those marshmallows tonight!

The box felt sloppy to me...like they started to run out of the shredded paper for the packaging. Everything was just tossed in a box.  I was going to give it to a friend, but the Cannabis candle and the hideous purple and black zebra socks makes it too juvenile for her. Samples of the very tiny mask and cleaner were on a smashed package, not as nice as previous LE boxes...glad I only ordered one with a coupon and points!

Recieved my box yesterday - overall pretty pleased. We got the cannabis candle and the peppermint lip balm - I wish we had gotten dark rum, but cannabis doesn't smell that bad. I don't think the box is worth the $39 they're charging, but it is more than worth the $5 I got it for!

I have been waffling on purchasing this, but I just bought it using the mobile20 code and 200 points.  I also added the Tocca hand cream 3-pack, a 100% Pure body cream, and a mystery pick-2.  The total came out to $39.20, so it is like I got all the other stuff for free!  There are only a few things I am interested in from the Snow Day box, but I figure I can use the rest for stocking stuffer gifts.

Thanks for posting a photo!  This helped me make up my mind :)

Has anyone who ordered this tried the marshmallows and cocoa yet?  I'm thinking about placing an order for these and am interested in your thoughts!

I only looked through my box briefly to check for damage, as I'm saving it for later. I got the cannabis candle, which smells much better than expected. Not sure what lip balm, but I don't care either way. I got these socks, which are really cute and probably my favourites of the ones I've seen.

The marshmallows are delicious but I haven't tried to the cocoa (I don't like marshmallows in cocoa).

 

I got the cannabis candle and like the scent but I still think it's a little weird that cannabis and dark rum were the 2 scents chosen for this box, haha. I also got the peppermint balm and would rather have the cinnamon so I may trade that. All in all I am happy with this purchase.

Thanks! I've never had "fancy" marshmallows, just regular supermarket ones and I love marshmallows so I'm thinking I should try the "real thing."

 

Regarding the candle, I guess on a snow day you're trapped inside and aren't driving, might as well indulge... joint.gif:beer: LOL

I have a bad feeling about that, you may want to shoot BB an email. Slow yes, it seems to stop in every single tiny state on its way when I order from them, but I have never seen such a delay in updating. Many stops usually means many scans/updates.

    • I want to know what are some of your biggest frustrations with your hair! This could be styling issues, texture issues, products that aren't working, I want to hear anything and everything! 
    • Hey! Honestly, I think most people's hair issues come down to the products they are using. Almost all hair products out there are only able to coat the hair strand, instead of penetrate the hair strand and heal the hair from the inside out. About 6 months ago I switched all of my hair products over to an all-natural luxury hair care line, and my hair has never been healthier! These products have also enhanced my natural texture (which used to be non-existent, but now I can actually scrunch my hair!), and so I think they would really help define your natural waves to make your hair look nicer the way it is naturally! Feel free to reach out if you want to hear more  
    • Hey!  So I discovered a new all-natural luxury hair care line that I started using about 6 months ago, and it has seriously made my hair so healthy. I have fine hair too, and it is so nice to finally have a conditioner that keeps my hair so moisturized and shiny without weighing it down and making it look greasy. I would love to share more about these products with you! If not, no worries  
    • Hi!  I would agree with what someone said about adding some texture to make your hair fuller. You could try sleeping in braids at night to add a little texture without heat! I would also say that the products you are using are going to make a big difference. Personally, I switched all of my hair products to a new all natural luxury hair care line, and I can truly say that my hair has never been better. My hair is thicker, so shiny, so healthy, and growing faster than ever! I would absolutely love to share these products with you and some testimonials about how these products have helped other women with thinning hair! Feel free to reach out I would love to chat  
    • Hey girl! I used to seriously struggle with split ends. I have really fine/straight hair, and split ends are really noticeable. Practically, I would say try to only use heat on your hair once a week, and if you are using heat make sure to put on a heat protectant first!  About 6 months ago I switched ALL of my hair products over to a new all natural luxury hair care line, and let me tell you, my hair is the best it has ever been. One of my favorite products is actually called a "split-end mender" and it literally just makes the split ends go back together and leaves your hair so smooth! It's obviously not a quick fix (because who would trust that anyway), but my hair is so hydrated, healthy, shiny, and it is growing faster than ever. The products you are putting on your hair make a HUGE difference. Let me know if you want to hear more
