Birchbox September 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I've been an Ace for almost two years and I haven't gotten anything at all. No keychain, extra gift or discount, nothing. What's the point of becoming an ACE if you don't get anything?

Well here is something random I forgot about. I've been an ACE for at least 2 years and just the other day I did get a happy anniversary you've been an ACE for a year now (no, it has been at least 2....), here is $15 to spend in the store. So that WAS nice and better than the keychain and I didn't have to spend a minimum amount of money so I just basically used the $15 on a swell bottle I wanted. 

 

So I lied, I DID get something as an ace, although 1.) I've been and ACE for much longer than one year, lol and 2.) my other account that is also an ace for at least a year, closer to two never received anything, including the 1 year anniversary email. Maybe I will get it when it has been 2 years at least, like the other one, :lol:

I've gotten key chains randomly and the $15 ace credit for specific items on my anniversary but it all seems very random to me.

 

Anyway, here's my upgrade box with three full size items. I think the upgraded items for me, this month, are the Clio Kill Black pen liner and the bbrowbar highlighter

This is my third eye cream this month! Thank goodness for swaps! The Helmut Lange scent is unisex, I didn't like it at first but it's grown on me. My lipstick was smitten, I think I have Kitty already. Smitten is described as cranberry red. When I took the pick i didn't know the little smudger went on the end of the highlighter, I was seriously stumped, wasn't until I looked at my box page that I figured out it went on the end of the highlighter. DUH! The liner is really nice and I'm thrilled with the Tocca scrub. Shampoo (and conditioner was my sample pick.

I got my BB in yesterday and love this month! I got 7 items and the only thing I would change is the Model Co color, I got Stiletto but can't wear red of any shade so I wish I'd gotten Kitty.post-99886-0-93731600-1442648800_thumb.jpg

My samples are, in birchbox terms, HUGE this month. Tocca scrub is 1oz., Parlor shampoo is 1oz., the Malin+Goetz is .5oz., and the Rusk is 1.1oz.! Plus my shadow trio and the two foils? I'd say it's an amazing box this month.

 

Edited because I didn't upload the picture the first time..

My box came with the upgrades and also the makeup organizer that I had added as an add-on. I'm overall happy with it especially about the Tocca scrub and the 100% pure eye cream. The model co lipstick is a shade (smitten) I wouldn't normally wear much but I'm looking forward to trying it.  Thank you @@Bizgirlva for the tip about the little smudger being part of the eyebrow highlighter.

Did anyone actually receive balloons in their box? Remember in the video there were supposed to be balloons that said Best Day and Yay? Were those only a surprise in some boxes or a crazy dream I had?

I thought the balloons were for the curated box or if you purchased an add-on or something.  they were not in the regular boxes.

There were balloons in mine. It was 3 balloons in different colors. The kids loved playing with them so it worked out. :) I did buy an add-on so maybe that's why. I got the makeup organizer.

September officially has me confused. The first week of September I got an email saying I needed to update my billing information, which after multiple emails BB told me it was an error on their end and they had fixed it. Wrong. 2 more phone calls finally got it corrected and my box processing. Now that is has finally shipped, my shipping is taking extra long and has really weird double dates. Has anyone ever had weird tracking info like this?! Mind you I only live about two hours from Fort Worth, yet it says it won't be here for another week.

Did you try to track it on USPS website? After Newgistics hands my boxes to USPS, I always find USPS tracking info a bit more reliable than Narvar. But, nowadays USPS is working very slow, too. Still, it shouldn't take a week to deliver your box after it was given to USPS.

Yes and sadly USPS says the same. Buts it's gotten even more strange now. Yesterday it updated to "out for delivery" in my home town, never got delivered and then it back tracked and now it says it's being sorted in a different town about 30 minutes from here. It's officially gone crazy.

Oh, so sorry :( I have been having the same troubles with USPS (for packages coming from different places) for the past 2 weeks. :/

I just got a September box, which was only the third box on this account. One of my samples was Harvey Prince Hello body butter...which I already received in July! So weird since in my 2+ years with various accounts I've never had a duplicate sample, not even on the account I've had since 2013! Since I only had 10 samples prior to this box with this account it's not like they had no other options to send. I also ordered it on the 24th and it seemed like it was thrown together, it's mostly tiny samples, I won't be ordering that close to the end of the month again just in case. I also didn't get the 20% off code as stated.

 

They did give me 100 points and a 20% off code when I emailed to tell them about the issues, so that was nice. Also, I was still able to review the sample a second time for some reason. The email said they would "be in touch with appropriate compensation shortly" right along with them saying they had given me 100 points...? I don't know what more compensation anyone could need? Ha. I only paid $5 for the box so still getting 50 points, 4 new samples (plus a spare Hello butter) and then 100 points is plenty! Maybe they forget to erase that part and it's a form email. They also said they were going to look into how it happened in the first place. Has this happened to others?
