Birchbox August 2016 Sample Choice **Spoilers**

Recommended Posts

According to this info from the app, box customization starts on 7/19, which is this coming Tuesday. It says we can choose samples that day, but unless they're changing how they do things (which is possible), I think they mean sample choice will be revealed that day? Usually we choose about a week after the options are revealed, right? Who knows now though. post-117264-0-88330900-1468771833_thumb.png

That does seem awfully early. But who knows?

The box customization page is loaded, nothing there yet content wise, I guess we'll see if it's up tomorrow. Or we could try a message on FB and see if they respond.

So are they no longer doing the add-ons that actually ARE discounted if you do the add on and instead just listing a bunch of regular priced stuff from their website?

TBH I haven't really noticed add ons lately that were truly discounted. A lot had a "sale" price from the "value"- but if you went to the product page, it was the same sale price. I think they are pushing it for the free shipping aspect- but if you are an Ace that is not meaningful

Didn't they just have the keds shoes on one of the Add on options only a few months ago? Those were half off the price on the Birchbox site, if I remember correctly. So now it looks like offering those type of add ons have gone by the wayside too even though I don't think I've ever done one (wanted to once but already sold out). Boy BB really is taking away all the perks!

alright.... I am actually pretty excited about the dry shampoo paste and the featured box. Darn you, birchbox sucking me right back in. Although I do think this will be my last month with 2 boxes.

Me too.

 

I'd love the Stila lip and the wipes from the featured box but not enough to go back to two boxes/month. I think I can trade for them.

Hmm. Of the sample choices I guess I wouldn't mind trying the oribe, but I'm not sure exactly what it does from her description.

 

I'll probably go with the curated box though. I can probably use everything and there's no perfume. My last few non-curated boxes have been awful so I'm not sure I want to risk another disappointment this month.

I wasn't sure if I'd cancel or not this month.  But I'm picking the curated box - I'll use everything except the Marcelle BB cream.  I've been wanting to try the LP oil too.

I'm picking the R&Co Paste and hoping the other hair item in my box isn't awful. I liked the curated box, but not enough to get all those dupes, so I cancelled my second sub. Depending on how my non curated box goes I may or may not cancel that one as well, since I think the sample choices have been really lackluster recently and there are other boxes I'd rather try.

Curated box is pretty nice actually, I think I will pick that one. Also want to try the Oribe spray, but there is no way I'm going back to two boxes especially with no points.

I was thinking of getting the curated just because the Stila is so pretty, but that box has so many dupes and things I like but don't love.  Then I saw on Redit there is a $20 Stila matte love kit.  It has patina, two other shades and a cute clutch.  Maybe I will just grab that kit and chose the dry shampoo.

I'm thinking about getting the curated. I never get the curated but lately my boxes haven't been great and I think I'll use almost everything in it. The unknown is so tempting though!

I picked the curated. A little sad because I enjoy the anticipation of the surprise but BB has been letting me down lately. I think I'm likely to cancel soon since they did away with the points. 

 

Also I just realized you can buy the curated box this month for $10 if your a subscriber. Not sure I would have gotten two boxes but this might be useful information to somebody!

Originally I picked the curated but got annoyed with all the dupes.  All I really wanted was the stila.  So I actually had my sample switched to the dry shampoo.  I'm hoping they throw in the stila. Otherwise I will buy the curated separately or possibly grab that stila set.

I picked the curated for Stila too. I am keeping two boxes only until this month and cancel one before September. My hair tends to be oily specially now in the summer. I do not feel like putting a lot of products in it.

    • My little Nutrisystem box is coming today. I HOPE I like it!!!! I got a big box before, years ago, and I did not like it. So did not stick to it. But I'm so tired of my overspending on food (Door Dash) delivery. When I get restaurant delivery, I don't even end up liking the food that much. If I get fast food, it's good, but when I order from a restaurant, the food is much less appealing and good than when you eat on site. The kind of food I get (partial to fried foods) makes me thirsty, tired. I've gotten to the point where I am so fed up, I'm just dying for the Nutrisystem box. That's the way I am when I go on a beauty No Buy and it ends up being successful - fed up with my behavior, feeling like I can't wait to change. It's nice Nutrisystem now has these little boxes you can get at Target and Walmart to try out and you don't have to spend over 200 up front and get a subscription.  I'm going to try different things with food each week until I figure out a plan to cut back. This will be harder than beauty No Buy for me.
