I definitely want that tea face mask. Nothing else interests me for November but that definitely does! So cute!

I am not super-duper overly excited about the PYS choices this month, but I do like that their are 4 solid choices. If I actually get to pick a sample this month, I am narrowed down to either the tea mask or the Juice Beauty.

Those two would be my choices too :), but I may skip picking a sample this month. I feel that when you pick, you limit number of possible boxes you can get.

 

I just can't wait to see that gift guide!

Me too. I really want see what Birchbox has in store (quite literally) for this holiday season. before I blow my holiday shopping budget on other stuff.

Hm, it used to be that you could only get the month's box if you subscribed before the 15th or 17th, but now they're doing it if you subscribe by the last day XD 

 

I'm not super interested in this month's box, so I don't want it, but I do want to get December's box... and I also want to pick my sample. And use the 100pt bonus. What to do, what to do... I guess I can always just spin the roulette next month so I can pick from December's samples.

I'm on the opposite end, none of those choices appeal to me.  I might choose one just to try and avoid the Amika mask--I bought a FS without ever sampling it based on recommendations from here and hated it!  Somehow it made my hair feel dry and greasy at the same time.  Truthfully I only get really excited over color cosmetics, but I end up finding a lot of things I like that aren't so exciting  :)

Not too interested in the sample choices this month. That might be a good thing for me though. Can keep it to own sub this month and save for holiday shopping.

I am not that excited about these sample choices.   I may pick the Not Soap Radio wash to avoid some of the other choices.  But it seems that they like to put more than one sample choice item in a lot of the boxes.  So maybe I should just leave it to fate!

Ehhh...I'm not particularly excited about any of this.  I'll wait to see what the curated box is and if I'm not wild about that, I'll leave it up to fate! 

 

Edit: I changed my mind, lol. I'm actually excited to possibly get a mask or face treatment. But I have no idea what's good - I don't use one normally. So I'll leave it to chance and hopefully Birchbox will match me to a good one for my skin.

I missed that it was a PYS, they really annoyed me in the video today. Lol

It's tough deciding between the green apple peel and the royal apothic mask. I really like the peel but want to try the mask!

I need the peel, and have been looking for a new product like it, for my skin routine. But I would also love the Amika. Maybe I will get lucky and they will throw in the Amika sample as well?

November already? Wow.

 

I didn't think I was going to make a pick this month, but then I saw that hair mask. Oh man, my hair needs some tlc!

(Side note, I seem to have lost my ModelCo lipstick from last month.  :(  I only got to use it once.)

 

ETA: Also, I cannot wait for the book club reveal. If it's Mindy Kaling again, I will do my happy dance!

I think I'll let them pick. All those choices seem fine, but nothing stands out. I didn't particularly enjoy the box I got this month when I picked.

Wow November stuff already!  I think I will go with the Soap, not radio unless/if there is a curated box that catches my eye more.

I really like the sample choices this month.  If I can I am going to pick the face mask on one account and the hair mask on the other.  My skin and hair need some love with the change in weather!  This looks like it will be a good month.

Well... I've tried three of the four (Juice Beauty through a different sub) already and I'm not really into picking them up again. Hopefully the curated box is good. If not, I will leave it up to chance and hope for the best.

I have previously sampled and loved and bought a full size of the green apple peel. I'm running low so it would be nice to get some more. But I would also like to try face mask and the hair mask.

I'm not going to pick a sample for either of my accounts.  I always end up feeling disappointed with my boxes that I picked the sample.  I like my sample choice but the rest of the box is usually lackluster.  The random boxes I get always seem to be better.

My year sub finished up this month and I un-subbed. Now I am waiting to sign up for month to month. I really hope it switches over before PYS opens. I contacted cs a week ago but she told me it would switch over later in the month but didn't say when exactly. I hope I get a choice but I'm not sure if I should get the Amika or the soap not radio.

    • Nice. Thanks for sharing this. Wearing makeup is common place in today's society, worn for anything from a day at work to a formal night out. Makeup may do magical things, but it doesn't have to be a mystery. Applying a basic, natural look doesn't require a lot of skill or tools. You can do lots of the blending with your fingertips, and choose to leave out certain products if they don't appeal to you. So have no fear: enjoy the process and your fresh, glowing face!
    • What is a good ,lightweight and affordable sunscreen? Any Suggestions...
    • There are so many recipes to make clear lip gloss at home. The easiest I say is using plain tocopherol T50 vitamin E oil in a roll on bottle. It was works wonders. Apart from glossy lips it heals dry chapped lips. A cheaper version of the gloss is castor oil. Castor oil is thick and glossy. A little of beeswax or/and shea butter too can be added. A recipe with castor oil, shea butter and castor oil. Castor oil 8 grams Shea butter 1 gram Beeswax 1 gram. I know it is quite difficult to make with such small measurements. Can multiply with 3 or 5 and you get 3 or 5 lip gloss roll on. Take all the three ingredients in a microwave save bowl, heat in short span of 5 seconds till everything is melted. Add flavour oil. (A lip safe flavour oil can be added for some fragrance and taste. Just a drop or two is more than enough for each roll on bottle.) Let it cool. Fill in roll on bottles or tubes or just any smallest container you have.
    • You should also heat your eyelash curler with a hair dryer before curling. Helps them stay curled for longer. Just make sure the eyelash curler isn’t too hot before using it.
