I believe it depends on the state you live in.

Just checked the birchbox app and my box shipped! It says that it is shipping from a warehouse in PA this month, and I live in PA, but somehow I have a feeling it will make a trip around the country until it gets to me later this week lol

Bah!! Reactivated my second sub. I must have that mini cheeky/lippie!! Several people have griped about the Gilchrist & Soames products but I tried the lotion last night and it's surprisingly silky and fresh smelling. Give it a try. You might be surprised. :)

Ahhhh I am excited for my subs to start coming in this month...it feels like it's been forever already! Is it weird that I hope I get the toothpaste? 
I want that the most! I loved getting the Marvis before.

Ah, Birchbox has the best CS! :) Hopefully you get a good box this month. 

 

Also, welcome!

Tomorrow can't come fast enough! I'm so impatient to see what I'm getting in my two boxes! XD May or may not be tempted to open a third sub...

Ooh, I had crossed all Beauty Protector spray boxes off my potential box list because I have received it three times in various boxes -- but I just went back and checked the account I have kept open, and I have *not* received it on that one!  I love that stuff, so I'm crossing my fingers that if I don't get the green eyeliner or theBalm cheek/lip color, I get more BP spray.  I've been subscribing almost three years, and I'm a bit amazed at how many boxes are still on my I-could-get-that-box list and how few I can cross off due to duplicate samples.  I've gone through twenty, and I think the only ones that would have a duplicate items would be the Vasanti boxes.  I'm going to give up going through them now to try to narrow things down because there are a *lot* of possibilities out there for me.

 

(I wonder whether we'll be seeing more Pop products showing up in Birchboxes over the next few months after the ipsy lipgloss disaster.  I can't believe they're basically telling people who complained about bad products to trust them because they reallyreally promise the rest of the products are awesome!  It seems entirely possible that bridges have been burned with the subscription box community at this point.)

Agreed. I would never use another product of theirs ever again, the way they treated ipsy customers after that is awful. They really need to take note from Befine on how to handle a subscription disaster.

I don't mind getting duplicates too much, the "sorry" bonus points are quite a perk!

6.gif I am allergic to most creams and lotions, but the Gilchrist and Soames lotion I just got in my box is wonderful!  Normally I have redness and bumps from a new lotion in minutes--I tested the product yesterday and had no problems, and used it again today!  No need to dig into my reserves of drugs to quickly combat the reaction!  Yea!  Give it a shot ladies, it is not like motel 6 lotion, it is the lotion that is used in high end hotels because it is nice and hypoallergenic. :icon_chee

i think it's so disrespectful when people spam the bbx facebook page with referral links to other subs. it just makes me feel some kinda way about that and i report each one of them as spam. (i.e. posting a referral link to ipsy on the birchbox wall, etc.)

Ugh, same. And the funny thing is that I haven't ever really seen that happening on Ipsy's fan pages (with BB subscribers talking about how it's so much better and everything). I'm sure that happens, but it can't happen nearly as often. I am beginning to suspect what someone else on here suggested, which is that Ipsy interns purposely go trash Birchbox on their Instagram and Facebook. Either way, it's tacky as all hell.

I'm in Texas no state tax here.

 

If you live in a state that does have sales tax you only pay tax if the company is based in the same state as you.  So, I'm in CA where there is sales tax, but BB doesn't charge *me* sales tax because they're not based here.  It sounds like TN used to be in the same boat, but all of the sudden this month people in TN are getting charged sales tax.  BB must have set up a distribution center or something there.

Oh well, win some/lose some! :)
 

Have you checked out your profile to make sure you have your hair type marked?

I got Coola in my box (#3). I dug out the rose tinted sample I got from ipsy. I compared the "volume" and then the "package". It's crazy.

 

The two samples are different sizes: Birchbox (.17 FL oz) and ipsy (.23 FL oz). And the ipsy packaging was smaller. :confused:

 

I blogged about it because it seemed strange. My conspiracy theory is maybe Coola has discovered something about shipping their mineral sunscreen that requires more room for air. I did buy the untinted cucumber version of the BB sample. The pump dispenser rarely works right. It sputters air a lot, so I twist and squeeze it out instead.

 

It's amusing by adding a tint to it; they're now marketing the same product as a natural bb cream since the SPF is higher than the rose tint. They now call the rose tint product their natural cc cream.
