New Limited Edition Boxes

Recommended Posts

Birchbox just posted two new LE boxes Vanity Affair and Home Sweet Homespun. I entered the contest hoping to win the Vanity Affair box. Both boxes are appealing to me,I don't know if I want to wait for the others to be revealed before placing any orders. I currently have 700 points to spend.

I love both the LE boxes that have been revealed.  Are there more Holiday LE boxes coming or is this it?  

 

I need more points for all of this!!

I'm so torn as to whether or not to buy either since they said they're releasing tons of limited edition boxes this holiday season.  The only products that jump out to me in the Vanity Affair box are the Tata Harper, Shu Uemura, Tocca and the By Terry Baume de Rose (I have been dying to try it out forever!) but the rest of the items are super giftable so it would still be a good deal.  The Home box seems pretty great too.  Does anyone else just love the boxes they come in?  I wish Birchbox would sell gift boxes in their shop similar to the ones they use for limited edition boxes.

According to the posts on FB they are "launching tons of LE boxes this season"

Both boxes are adorable, but all I could think watching the 2nd video was "Wow, Katia is SO much less annoying than the staff members who usually do their videos" 

 

Anyone else feel the same? Ten time more bearable to watch in my eyes, with less high-pitched fake excitement and she actually talks and acts like a normal person.

Ack these are both so nice! Seriously making me reconsider opening my second account (where I currently have 300 points saved) to use a 100 point code...Not only do I want the boxes for myself, but I do think that they would make great gifts! Hopefully we have lots of good 20% off codes and whatnot during the season for all these boxes! I'm so excited to see the others!

I think the Love with Food box videos are 10x worse with the faux giddy than BB videos.

 

There was a moment at the beginning of Katia's video that I thought she was trying to seduce the box AND the viewers.  Odd.

Liking the home box! I already have the whole set of the Rosanna vessels and not really into those snap trays from the other box so the other box is pretty meh even though a few of the products would be nice to try.

Would it be too much to ask for someone to list the contents of these? I'm at work and can't watch the videos, but the curiosity is killing me!

I really like the home box, they should be releasing them this week. However for anyone in nyc all the boxes will be in the soho store by the 11th :) I think there may be one or two more LE boxes as well as two(I think) men's LE boxes coming.

i was SO digging the vanity affair box, up until I saw the $98 price tag. it has a lot of awesome stuff in it, but i don't want to spend that much on JUST makeup/beauty stuff (which is why i really liked last year's holiday box even though the price tag was a little high, it had a mixture of things...i just like variety).

I have the points points and I like the idea of the home one but I never seem to get myself to pull the trigger on LE boxes.

this was me last year, as soon as i was done deliberating and decided to buy it, they sold out >_>

Very, very tempted by the Home Sweet Homespun box... mostly for the cookie mix and the actual box itself though. XD

I totally just ordered 2 of the Homespun boxes using the code TAKEOFF20. One for me and one for my sister!

The Homespun one actually looks really nice, especially as a gift. I kind of wish the Vanity Fair box had a piece of jewelry in it like last years Precious Metals box, I'm still kicking myself for missing out on that one. But I will definitely be getting a Homespun box if it doesn't sell out in the next two weeks!

I ordered that Milk Bar mix a few weeks ago, they were so decadent! Warning: the instructions are for a stand mixer, not everybody has one.  I'm sure folks could figure out a translation to hand mixer, but they do work differently.  

 

Also, delicious?  YES.  Would I spend $16 on cookie mix at the grocery store?  Nope!  You can't beat free with points, though.  

 

I'd probably go for the Homespun box if I hadn't just tried these.

I totally bought the Homespun box... I really want the Vanity Affair box too but I'm not sure the price point is enough to make me pull the trigger.

    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
