  1. Mine’s changed since yesterday (or the day before) when I checked it. I’m still getting Stila mascara, Klorane dry shampoo, an aloe mask, and Dr Jart Ceremidin Cream, but now instead of a Rusk hair shine spray I’m getting a Number 4 Hair Oil. Which is good, because I use hair oil. I like this box – I like Dr. Jart and I’ve wanted to try the Ceremidin Cream, and I like the hair oil and aloe mask, and am happy to use the other two items as well. Hope it doesn’t change (unless it changes for the better again, of course).

  2. Yay! Favorite time of every month. I’m getting two boxes on two separate accounts. The first one is the Game Face box (I’m excited about the Smashbox primer, I’ve never used it, and the Clinique moisturizer, I’m currently hoarding moisturizers for winter). The second one I chose a mascara:

    -EXO Supply Co. Pure Nail Polish Remover Wipes
    -Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
    -Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
    -Benefit They’re Real Lengthening Mascara
    -Acure Organics Cell Stimulating Facial Mask

    • I am getting the same October box as you! I have not matched 5 out of 5 with someone before. : )

  3. Here’s what I got:

    BioRepublic Skincare Pomegranate Crush Illuminating Mask Set,
    jane iredale HandDrink Hand Cream,
    R+Co dry shampoo,
    Vasanti® BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator,
    Stila huge mascara

    I’ve never tried any of them so we’ll see…..

  4. Glad the “trick” worked!

    Im VERY VERY Excited about my box this month. Im more into skin and hair care than makeup so this is PERFECT for me this month! Cant wait!

    I am receiving:

    Avene Thermal Spring Water
    Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
    Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara
    Manna Kadar Lip Locked
    BioRepublic Skincare Cucumber Breeze Soothing Fiber Mask

  5. Click on review this sample if you can’t click to see what it is, that is what I did. 😉

    I am getting:

    -Manna Kadar Lip Locked
    -Avène Soothing Moisture Mask (just got this in ipsy but thats okay cuz it was a small sample and I’d like to use it again)
    -Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
    -Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream (many complained, but I am excited cuz my dry skin is annoying!)
    – Benefit Roller Lash Super-Curling & Lifting Mascara (eeek! I stalked my email and it payed off. Thanks to MSA for posting what day to check our emails)

    • Bag twins! I think it’s a great selection!!!

    • Your box is awesome! Thank you for telling me more about the Davines shampoo and conditioner. 🙂 It sounds like a good product.

  6. Not excited at all Birchbox keeps sending me products that won’t work for my hair. I just don’t get it, if I have thick/curly hair I don’t need products for fine/thin hair. Also getting hand lotion, a facial mask, eyeko mascara and another perfume sample. I have mine set to not get more than 6 perfume samples a year and I just got one last month and now this month. Frustrating, but I’m sure Ipsy is going to be awful too.

    • I have thin, fine hair and keep getting products for your hair!

  7. I’m excited for the Stila mascara I picked, and also for the dry shampoo I’m getting. I already have a ton of dry shampoos, but I always love getting new ones.

    The other items I’m receiving are kind of meh to me. I’m getting a face mask that contains oils, and oils always break me out. I’m getting a Jouer moisturizer, but I’m so sick of receiving moisturizers. I’m getting a Dr. Jart Cream too, which I could have sworn I already received awhile back.

  8. Everything was sold out by the time I got around to picking, which is fine… I generally like the surprises. I’m fairly happy with this month’s box as these are all new products for me.

    Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara
    BioRepublic Skincare Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask Set
    Jouer Matte Moisture Tint (which I’m sure will be the wrong color lol)
    RUSK Hair Care Elixir Mist
    Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

  9. Oh the surprise boxes sound great too! I wished I had done that and then ordered the Pose box as well.

  10. I’m mostly excited about my box.
    I’m getting:
    English Laundry Eau de Parfum No. 7. Perfume isn’t the most exciting thing to receive. However, I’ve been wanting to try Harvey Prince Hello or Harvey Prince Ageless – Pink Grapefruit.
    Stila Huge Extreme Lash mascara. I’m very happy I didn’t pick my sample, because the only choice left for me was Eyeko. I love mascara but I didn’t want Eyeko.
    Davines LOVE Hair Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner. I’m kind of excited for the shampoo and conditioner.
    Pearl Bay Invasion. I think it’s a highlighter.
    And I think Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

    • I think you will enjoy that shampoo, it had a unique smell but the more I use it the more I like it. I have very long thick hair and I still have that shampoo. A little goes a long way! Loving your box. 🙂

    • I have 2 Harvey Prince Hello samples (I’ve gotten this 4 times now) and I’d gladly trade for your English laundry No. 7. I LOVE their fragrances but haven’t dropped the cash on a full-size yet.

      • That stinks. Have you complained to Birchbox? I emailed them one time and they were able to help me.

        • I haven’t emailed them about it, I’m going to right now though…

  11. Mine still won’t work with the workaround. Oh, well. I’ve been pretty disappointed with my boxes lately. I did the upgraded box and I haven’t seen the value there. Not to mention that I still never get the option to choose the curated box with the $30 option.

    • Jenny-
      I get the upgraded box as well and was somewhat disappointed back in July when I wanted the Nicole Richie box. You can still get the curated box but you need to buy it separately. I was okay with that as I wanted what was in each box that month but I realize that is a not a long term solution. I’m liking the full size add ons, I think it is worth it for the additional $20 and most of the time ONE of the two items I receive is priced for more than the $20. Anyway, I also can not see anything in my October box yet. So sad. I always like to peek.

  12. Any ideas? I can get to that page, but it won’t let me click on any of the samples, to see what they are. Only the first sample is clicked (Avene moisture mask), and I can’t click on the others to see what they are. 🙁

    • Try clicking on review the sample (where the stars are) I had the same issue.

  13. I’m getting EXO nail polish remover wipes, Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream, Amika dry shampoo, W3LL People mascara (my choice), and Acura Organics mask. I’m really looking forward to the cream, the mask and the mascara. Nail polish remover is always a plus. I have a lot of dry shampoos, and never really use them — but hey, I might someday. So all in all, it’s 3+s, one neutral and one semi-negative. Pretty great!

    • I think we’re swap twins. I need more dry shampoo like I need a hole in my head, but I can always use nail polish remover wipes, and this is an Acure product I haven’t tried yet. So not bad.

  14. im getting another Rusk product!! Ugh! Those don’t work on my hair! This is the 4th one I’ve gotten either in my box or in the bonus sample pack ????

  15. I’m getting Roller Lash, the Bio face mask, Dinoplatz highlighter, another dry shampoo, and another random hair product. I’m actually pretty excited about this month.

    • I’m getting the same thing! My other hair product is Rusk elixir. My not too excited about that one but I am still excited about this box.

  16. I am so excited for this month! Normally, if there is one or two samples that I like/am excited for, I consider it a win. But this month there are 4 that I’m pumped about. I’m getting:

    Roller Lash (my pick)
    Avene moisture mask
    Klorane dry shampoo
    Dr. Jart ceramidin cream
    Manna Kadar lip locked gloss (can’t win them all…)

    • Klorane dry shampoo is AMAZING!

  17. My box is pretty good!
    Caudalie detox mask, CaudalieCaudalie cleansing water, Too Cool For School highlighter, 12 Benefits Instant Hair treatment, a Clean fragrance sample, and my sample choice of RollerLash mascara.


    • That is exactly what I’m getting!

      • 😀

        I LOVE it when we get more than five items. Extra points, FTW!

  18. For my sample choice I picked the Stila mascara. I’m also getting the Avène thermal spring water, the BioRepublic cucumber fiber mask set, the Manna Kadar lip gloss, and the Oribe texturizing spray. I’m excited to try them all! 🙂

    • Box twins!!! I am super happy about this month!

    • I’m getting the same as well!! I can’t wait to try literally everything in it.. Definitely a great box this month!

    • Yall will love the face masks! You should get 3 of them 🙂 I believe that’s what I got in a previous box was 3.

  19. Mine kept saying September but I finally got it to change and peeked. I’m getting Embryolisse Lait-creme concentrate, Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming eye Gels, ModelCo Ultra long-lasting lipstick, amika perk up dry shampoo and eyeko black magic mascara. So happy I went with the surprise box over the others.

    • I’m getting exactly what you’re getting! Lol. ?

      • Oops! I’m getting exactly what Kristi is getting. ^_^

    • I love the Embryolisse Lait-creme concentrate and Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming eye Gels. You got a great box! I hope you fall in love with those products just as much as I did. Skyn Iceland makes really great products.

    • I’m getting this box too. I’m not terribly excited about it though. Nothing in the box was something I hate but I just didn’t feel thrilled about any of the items. I hope when it arrives that I feel a bit more enthusiastic. Skyn is a great line (and I’ve used the eye gels, they are really nice) and I’m hopeful about the Embryolisse Lait-creme concentrate too.

  20. Thanks Liz, I love my box. The linked worked for me. ???

  21. Mine wasnt listed so i did the trick mentioned in the comments ( thank you !!) im wishing i went with a curated box. mine sucks !!! Harvey prince hello body cream …. i cant tell them enough how much i hate this scent !! If i didnt love their point system and store this box would be my cancel point

  22. I am somewhat disappointed this month. I am getting two hair products (dry shampoo and something that is for getting rid of frizz). I continue to rate these products poorly since I have very thin, fine hair and have no need for these items. I would have LOVED to have received the Dear Clark Thickening Balm and it would have been perfect for me. This is my 11th box and they still don’t have it right 🙁 I am also receiving the Dinoplatz highlighter, BioRepublic soothing mask, and Benfit Roller Lash.

  23. My link doesn’t work. It says “positive force”, whatever that means

    • Mine says that too. Keep scrolling down after that.

  24. I wanted to try all the mascaras except the well people and of course my non-ace account has the well mascara. The rest of the samples don’t seem bad but nothing too exciting. At least I got the stila on my ace account

  25. I am getting shampoo and conditioner again! I am so tired of shampoo and conditioner in my BirchBoxes. :/

  26. My sample choice was the roller lash (I’ve already used a sample and love it). My other samples are the dear Clark thickening balm (I never heard of this brand so I’m excited to try it), calypso st Barth perfume ( has anyone tried their perfumes?), the supergoop handcream, and the Malin and goetz cleanser & moisturizer. I know a lot of these samples have been going around in previous months but I am still excited to try everything.

    • I am getting exactly the same box as yours :).

      • I’m excited for it ! I hope the perfume smells good !!

    • Same box here as well! Everything looks good except the perfume. I know they say they can’t guarantee every box will be perfume-free if you choose no perfume in your preferences, but I swear I still get one in every box anyway no matter what.

    • I got the Malin & Goetz grapefruit gel cleanser last month, and I absolutely love it. My new favorite.

  27. Hey Liz! I got the email too and it still shows September… However, there is a work around.

    In the address bar, when you are logged in, remove the last part that says “this-month/”. And instead type in “2015/10/”. It should then show Octobers box. This is how I do my sneak peeks each month. 🙂

    • Thanks so much! I’ll update the link!

    • Mine still shows nothing except of Positive Force. No sample, nothing to review, nowhere to scroll down :C
