Birchbox September 2014 Sample Pick Spoilers

Birchbox has revealed the 4 samples you get to pick from for your September box! You’ll be getting an email soon with the option to pick which one you want – if you didn’t get an email from them in August make sure to email [email protected] now to let them know to get you on the list!)

You will be able to pick one of the following samples for your September box:

Birchbox September

(not actual sizes pictured)

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate (10 ml) – Value $21

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit – (1 oz) Value $10

Davines Oi Conditioner paired with Shampoo and Oil Packets – Not sure on sizes or value

Macadamia Professional Healing Oil Spray – (guessing 2 oz) Value $15

What do you think of the September Birchbox samples? Which one do you plan on getting? I was hoping for a makeup sample again, but these look pretty good too. I’m debating between the Macadamia sample since it looks like a pretty deluxe size, and the Davines sample since I’m assuming we’ll get 3 reviews (30 Birchbox points) out of it!


UPDATE: There is also a Fashionista box you can pick:

  1. I got my Birchbox yesterday. Again great box. Shiseido, full size Pixi, 1 Oz Tocca hand cream, Harvey Prince Ageless shower gel 0.50 oz, vial Atelier perfume, and extra shampoo and conditioner ×2. 7 items to review. So pleased!

  2. I cancelled and signed back up late so didn’t get to choose but my Sep box is finally showing on the web and I’m pretty pleased. Pixi lip balm tinted, Modesso ? Face moisturiser, #4 dentangling moisturizing spray, ofra universal eye brow pencil, Ruffian nail polish with remover cloth, and one other item I forget what. Lol but I’m confused it’s showing 6 items! !!! Not including the ruffian remover cloth which I guess comes with the nail polish.

    This is the first month that everything looks full size besides the face moisturizer which the travel size retails for $28.50 (0.4 oz) and the #4 detangler spray.

    The eye brow pencil is full size, the pixi tinted lip balm is full size and I’m unsure of the nail polish but it’s a great size nonetheless. I’m forgetting one item so I’ll go check and see what it is. Shocked my Sep box shows 6 items (plus a remover wipe. This is the hIghest valued box by far.

    I’m thinking because I resubbed and this is there 4 year anniversary. 🙂

  3. I just got a email to sneak a peek at my samples for this month so I did. On one of my BB accounts I chose the Fashionista box, however I’m only seeing 4 items I’m missing the Laura Mercier item. I’ll be pretty bummed if I only have 4 items in my box this month. Does anyone else see the 5th item listed in their account?

    • The same thing happened to me. I’m debating if I should email CS or wait until I see what’s actually in the box when I get it.

    • Sometimes it takes a few days for all the items to show up on the website. I’ve had it happen where I received the box and then had to wait 3-4 more days before all the samples were there for review. So I would say give it a little while.

      Meanwhile, I wonder what I did that allows me to get my boxes so early compared to everyone else? (Mine came yesterday.)

      • I saw that my box contains Ruffian Laquer Naked which is a pale pink. It made me think of you. I know how much you love pale pink 🙂

        • Funny thing is, I’m wearing pale pink right now. (Hope that doesn’t make me too much of a hypocrite.) I was staring at my nailpolish rack last night, though, and I saw the LVX Lolli from Petit Vour (?) and I realized I’d never tried LVX polish, so I picked it. Next time I think I will use some nail art stickers so it’s not just plain pink. But the polish formula is good.

          I tried the blue Ruffian polish from the Mermaid LE box and liked it, although I should’ve worn a base coat because it stained my nails. Oops.

          • LOL. You can say it is market research to see which brands are the best 🙂

  4. I got my email and signed right in- I mean i was looking at my phone when the email came in. Three of the sample choices were already gone. I really wanted to try that Davines conditioner. I’ve had the Oi shampoo and oil in my cart and debating on it. 🙁 Second choice was the Shiseido as I use the Dior One and I think its going to be similar.

    Pretty bummed about this month.

  5. I was just on and got my sample, no problems like the last couple times. maybe they have got their tech issues under control. I did see that the Fashionista box was sold out (maybe they will get more). I too already have 3 of the Cynthia Rowley eyeliners. I love them, but don’t need anymore for a long while. I’m just glad things went more smoothly this month, I know the last couple times there was a lot of frustration, so I hope everyone was able to get the item of their choice without a hassle.

  6. I was able to select today. I lucked out and saw the email on my phone and selected right away.

  7. This is actually the first month where I would have been happy with any of the samples! But I jumped on the ‘refer a friend and choose early’ bandwagon and did so. I picked the Shiseido b/c I’m 52 and my skin needs all the help it can get (though lol to the poster who said it sounded like a video game power up).

    note: though I referred a friend 3 days ago, I did not get the early sample choice email (despite checking my email so many times @ work today that my phone died). However as soon as I went on the BB site and asked about it via chat, they instantly looked me up, saw that I had referred a friend, and let me choose. I was impressed with their customer service!

  8. I just reserved Fashionista box 🙂 the only bad thing is, that I already have 2 Cynthia Rowley silver eyeliner I got from Birchbox. It will be my no 3! Anybody want to swap it for brown eyeliner? I will be happy to swap 2 of them.

  9. A little packet of the Shisedo concentrate came in this month’s Allure magazine. I haven’t tried it get but I’m glad I got it that way so now I can choose something else in this month’s Birchbox to try out. I think I’m going to go for the conditioner.

  10. Where did you see the spoiler about the Fashionista box? I’ve looked everywhere and don’t see any info about it. Looks like it could be good though because I want the Macadamia Healing Oil Spray!

    • I asked what the Macadamia Sample in the Fashionista box is gonna be!

      • Comment

    • Hey Zara,

      This is what’s in the Fashionista box! 🙂

      Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara
      Lengthening, lash-thickening mascara

      Cynthia Rowley Beauty Silver Eyeliner
      Velvety, smudge-proof metallic pencil

      dr. brandt® pores no more® vacuum cleaner™
      Pore-clearing, blackhead-banishing gel

      Naobay Body Radiance Lotion
      Ultrahydrating, all-natural cream

      Macadamia Professional™ Flawless Cleansing Conditioner
      All-in-one hair cleanser and softener

      • Thanks!!!

  11. Ipsy 1500 point Mystery Bag Spoiler!! Saw on instagram someone already got theirs!

  12. Did they already send a mail with choices? I didn’t get it yet…

    • Anna,
      I just got an email from them today showing the samples at the very bottom if I clicked on the link. The sample choices will be open to Aces on the 26 I think and everyone else on the 27, but if you go on your profile and refer a friend between now and tomorrow evening, you will get to choose the sample on the same day as the Aces. It’s on the BB twitter feed that I found out about it and saw the video with the samples and the plus items (which are really cute this month IMO).

      • Thanks Jessica. I was wondering where the mail with choices is and was checking my email like every hour since yesterday 😉

      • I cancelled Birchbox and tried to sign back up. It says my account is still active, although I received the confirmation email that it was cancelled over a week ago. Since my box is still showing active, it won’t let me sign back up unless I make another account. I guess I still have an active box. Thanks for the update about the box. I’m not quite an ace yet so hopefully there will still be my choice available. I want Fashionista and if I can fork it out since I have other subs, I’ll sign for another box and get the anti aging serum. No makeup but good choices this month. 🙂

        • Brandy, I had a similar issue and emailed customer service and they fixed it!

    • No its on the 26th or 27th

      • Comment was suppose to be for the other girl that asked

        • Ahh im on mobile and it wont let me delete my comments.

  13. If it helps anyone shiseido seems to have started adding sd alcohol as a top ingredient in its new stuff. I checked that serum out recently as it sounded nice but alcohol(and not plant alcohol) was the 2nd or 3rd ingredient. Not sure how a soothing serum contains alcohol. Too bad otherwise sounded great. I might go for Liz Earle since I haven’t tried it.

  14. I want the Shisedo power infusing serum!!!

    The cleanse I have been wanting to try but I am always into serums or anti aging so I love that. That would be my pick but the fashionista box also looks great.

    I am not into much hair care but I have sampled Davines shampoo and conditioner and it’s nice.

    All of these are wonderful sample choices but I want the Fasionista box as well as choosing the Shiseido serum. It’s a tough choice!

    I cancelled BB but I’m going to sign back up for this month! 🙂

  15. I’m getting the Fashionista box choice! It sounds awesome and I’m going to have to be on top of my email the day we can choose to get it before it’s out of stock! Just like the everygirl box last time.

    • Fashionista box? I can’t seem to find this, do you have any further details?? I am torn, I would love to try all 4 items! I wish they would do a pick two!

      • Lynn,
        The Fashionista box will contain 5 samples from Laura Mercier, Cynthia Rowley Beauty, Naobay, Dr. Brandt, and Macadamia Professional (which I think might be that spray oil that you can also choose, but it doesn’t specify). You can always open a second account. I have two. That way I can get the box and a sample with random things which is always fun too. 🙂

        • Oh thank you for the update! I do have 2 subs right now, one is a gift sub so I may try to get the Fashionista box on that one. I have received a few of these things already, I think, although it doesn’t say what the actual items are yet. But my gift sub just started last month and these would be new items for that one anyway. Does anyone know if you can get points for reviewing on a gift sub?

      • Hi Lynn and Jessica,

        These are the exact products!

        Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara
        Lengthening, lash-thickening mascara

        Cynthia Rowley Beauty Silver Eyeliner
        Velvety, smudge-proof metallic pencil

        dr. brandt® pores no more® vacuum cleaner™
        Pore-clearing, blackhead-banishing gel

        Naobay Body Radiance Lotion
        Ultrahydrating, all-natural cream

        Macadamia Professional™ Flawless Cleansing Conditioner
        All-in-one hair cleanser and softener

        • Lauren,
          Thank you! I just picked that choice for my Ace account 🙂

  16. debating between the macadamia and the liz earl any suggestions !

    • I picked Liz Earle today on my Ace account. I really love her cleanse & polish set and it comes with the cleanser and a muslin cloth. I haven’t tried the Macadamia oil, but I highly recommend the Liz Earle set. It makes your skin feel amazing! I have 2 Birchbox accounts and I am going to pick it as my sample on both and stock up..

  17. I’m torn between the davines and macadamia oil I’ve always wanted to try macadamia but since I’ve gotten Birchbox I’d like to tty davines

  18. The Davines conditioner sample size is 75ml.

  19. I’m torn between the Shiseido or the Macadamia Oil. Beauty DNA sent me a bottle of the oil which I love. My sister wants to try the Liz Earle.

    • I wonder if the oil is a foil packet? I’ve received that sample before in the packet.

      • They have a video that shows the samples held up next to the full size of each product. They are actually all the exact same size as the pictures above (the ones above the fashionista box). The oil is a good size spray. Maybe about the size of the beauty protector sprays that they sent out awhile back.

  20. Shiseido definitely!!

  21. Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate sounds like something that would help me in a video game, not a real life product. I might have to try the macadamia spray.

    • hahaha

  22. Do you think by month 3 they will have worked out the kinks???

    • Haha I’m still a little skeptical! Fingers crossed!

  23. Eh..I was hoping for some makeup too

  24. YAY, i was debating between the first three, anything but the oil since i’m still loving the oil that i got in my fabfitfun box, even though the spray applicator does give it an advantage, and you definitely just convinced me that the conditioner is the best option.

  25. Is that Davines sample the same one that came in the boxes a couple of months ago? I got that when I still subscribed. (Haven’t gotten around to using it yet.) If anyone already got that one, they might not get points for reviewing it a second time…

    • I can tell it was time for me to cancel BB, when I’m pretty sure I’ve already received 3 of these 4 items in past boxes.

      • If you have already received all of these sample options you are able to not make a choice. You would then receive new (to you) samples based on your profile.
