Both the Birchbox reveals are up! (Thanks, Chanttee for letting us know!)


Use this link to see what you’ll get from Birchbox this month. (FYI – the reveal worked for one of my subscriptions, but didn’t load for a different subscription account, so you may need to try back later if it isn’t working for you).

  1. My stuff for December still isn’t up. Anyone else?

  2. I’m getting:
    The Balm Frat Boy Blush. I like blush but I rarely use it. I wish it would’ve gone to someone who wanted it.
    Soap & Paper Factory Shea Butter Hand Cream.
    Amika the Shield Style Extending Spray
    Coastal Scents Eyeshadow. I let them pick the color, because I don’t really like eyeshadow.
    Coola Classic SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face.
    This month was kind of a miss for me. Oh, well.

    • I wish I got the blush.

      This month was such a miss for me 🙁

  3. I finally got to see what I’m getting! I’m receiving the Balm frat boy blush, coola cucumber face moisturizer, Oscar de la Renta perfume sample, Juara hand cream, and coastal scents palette (I chose the gold and green) but it shows me the pink combo….and no chocolate!

    • I chose the pink combo but got the green/gold!

  4. i finally got to see my box. I’m pretty happy but could do without the eye shadow. Also I was hoping to get the fratboy blush a lot of people are getting.
    *serge Normant volumizing spray
    *soap and paper factory Shea butter hand freak
    *beauty crop highlighting cream
    *coastal scents style eyes palette
    *beauty protector protect and oil

    • Hand cream! Not freak! Lol

    • I got the exact same box.

    • I got the same box on my 2nd account, not happy at all with it. I have thick/wavy/curly hair, I don’t need volumizing products but they keep sending them too me. I’ve received the highlighter and oil before. Nothing new or exciting.

  5. I can’t see my box yet but I’m hoping for the balm frat boy, I was hoping for that last month. I love the balm mini’s. Plus I just love the balm in general. I chose the green and gold eye shadow but payment didn’t go through until the 2nd so they will probably send something different. 🙁 I love my Ipsy bag this month though. I already have most of the items from the curated box so didn’t go with that one but the products are fabulous if anyone is hesitating on buying from the store, I highly recommend it. 🙂

  6. I found this interesting- my sneak peek page doesnt show anything yet, but my box has already shipped. So the items being chosen and the items showing up on your page are independent events. I had always thought before that the items didnt show up because they hadnt been finalized, and once they finalized it they would show up, but apparently not.

  7. Can’t see mine yet…actually a little frustrated with BBC this month. I got a year subscription or Christmas last year and didn’t realize that December wouldn’t be included (makes sense I guess since I got the first box of that gift last December), but they never e-mailed me to tell me my previous payment account didn’t go through. So, I just updated my card info and thus probably why I don’t see my box. On top of my last few boxes being super lackluster and the curated box for this month being sold out by the time I got THAT e-mail, I’m not even sure why I kept the sub going.

    Those The Balm samples are impossible to use because of their size…if I get that sample in this box, it’s my sign!

  8. Same thing happened last month where I couldn’t see my samples. Then when i was able to see them my sample choice wasn’t in my box. Then when my box arrived it was a totally different box from the one listed online. Then a week later i got another box with the online samples. So yeah i got 2 boxes accidentally last month.

    • That sounds like a good deal! Last month they gave me 2 different tracking codes. One code said it was delivered but I never received it and one came late, 19th. The one I received was missing an item. They only gave me 50 points for their mistake. I heard other people got 100 points PLUS another box.

  9. Birchbox is taunting me. I can see the “All Wrapped Up” logo but not my products. 🙁

  10. I like the way they offer you a sample choice, but still give you the one you didn’t want. Haha thanks for asking though!

  11. Mine still isn’t showing up either. But it seems like there are 2 boxes that are being handed out a lot this month. The one with the frat boy blush especially.
    Birchbox has been pretty underwhelming these last few months. I really hoped they would do a great end of the year box, with a little treat like chocolate but it’s not looking like it.
    Also seriously if I end up with a coastal scents eye shadow I might just cry, haha. It’ll be the 5th, yes 5, eyeshadow pallets I’ve received from birchbox this year ?

  12. I can see the December 2015 but not my items. Darn it.

  13. My box is almost never available when you post this monthly. I wish they all went up at the same time. 🙁

  14. This month I’m getting:
    – coastal scents shadow in the pink color and lighter color (accidentally chose this. Wanted the serge normant)
    -the lighting crew highlighting cream. Intrigued to try this. I love a good highlighter 🙂
    -cools cucumber facial moisterier (not excited about this).
    -Amika perk up dry shampoo (I’m probably the only one who hasn’t gotten this yet lol)
    -Harvey prince sea salt spray. (Will probably never use. Not a fan of sea salt sprays on my already thick/frizzy hair)
    Not the best box but definitely not the worst I’ve received.

    • That highlighter is awesome. Got it last month. You’ll love it!

    • I got the same exact box as you. I don’t understand why birchbox is sending sea salt spray and sunscreen in the winter time. Pretty much the only thing I’m excited for is the highlighting cream.

      I think I’m trying one more month then cancelling my subscription and this was only my second Birchbox.

    • I got the same items as you. Mine came yesterday and everything was better than I thought it would be (save the Cools moisturizer, it wasn’t anything special). The Amika dry shampoo smells great! I was impressed by how much I actually liked it.

  15. Still don’t see mine either just keeps linking to the homepage 🙁

  16. Mine aren’t showing yet…I am just hoping for some chocolate! LOL

  17. How do you pick the curated box?

    • I am pretty new- to Birchbox, but what I believe- is around the 18th of the month- Birchbox posts a video featuring the next month sample choice/ and what is in the curated box. Around the 24th of the month- you can log into your account and then choose if you like the 1 sample option or the curated box.

    • A few days before sample choice day they release the video of choices and the curated box. You should get an email to go check it out. Then around the 24th Aces get to pick. Aces have earned 500 or more points in the year. This includes reviews, referrals and and points for purchases. Aces pick a day early. The next day you get an email and make the choice. Sometimes things are already gone. Keep looking even before the email to have the best chance to pick what you want. Hope this helps.

  18. I’m getting:

    Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream
    Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray
    Coastal Scents® styleEYES Palette
    (MALIN+GOETZ) clarifying clay mask
    theBalm® cosmetics Frat Boy® Blush/Shadow

    Not too terribly exciting, but I always enjoy finding that little box on my doorstep. I am glad I snagged the Too Faced grab bag, so I’m not too heartbroken. 😉

    • I’m getting the same exact box lol

    • I’m getting the same box. Kind of bummed, because I wasn’t interested in the hairspray or the eyeshadow, and got stuck with both. I like the rest of the options and am excited to try the Frat Boy blush! That Yu-Be sample is TINY, though. 🙁

    • Both of my birchbox accounts got this and same with my mom. So weird!

  19. For the first time in the two years I’ve been subscribing to BB & Ipsy, BOTH of my subs are awesome this month. Can’t wait to try everything. I do hope they surprise everyone with chocolate though ?

  20. LOL, I am such an utter dork that I clicked the link, all excited to see what I was getting… and then remembered I chose the curated box so I have long known exactly what I’m getting! Duh. 😀

    I wasn’t excited about the microdermabrasion since I have a bazillion scrubs, but it is so well reviewed that now I’m excited.

  21. I think this is the first Birchbox that has really disappointed me. I don’t really want anything in my box. Nothing worth cancelling over, but I’m glad that I scaled things back to 1 sub from 3 recently.

    I’m getting:

    Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream (meh)
    Catherine Malandrino Romance perfume (I’m not a perfume girl)
    Coastal Scents StyleEyes (why, Birchbox, why? ?)
    Vasanti Brighten Up! Face rejuvenator (may try)
    Benefit They’re Real! Tinted primer (may try)

    • The Vasanti is the best exfoliator I’ve ever tried.

      • Agree on the vasanti

    • I’m getting the same stuff… And was like meh… Glad I bought some other boxes on the black Friday deals.

    • I love the Vasanti, it’s definitely worth a shot! And I was wondering if they would sample the new Benefit primer! 🙂

  22. Drat, mine isn’t showing yet.

    And there’s no chocolate in yours??? I find this distressing.

      • Still not working. I even tried the little hack that always works. :: shrug:: It’ll come up eventually. :: knock wood::

      • That link worked for me when the email didn’t – thanks for the tip!

  23. I chose the volumizing spray but still got the eye shadow (formal). Thought I could avoid the shadow by choosing the spray. My box is terrible this month!

    At one time I had three Birchbox subs. Now I have two, one of which expires this month. I am not planning on renewing the expiring one. The remaining one is month to month. I might cancel it, also, and wait until I see something great revealed before I sign up again.

    I do like their points system, though.

    • I am getting the spray. Would you care to swap? Chelsea at daiseywizbang at gmail

    • Same here. I chose the spray only because I didn’t want to waste an item on an eyeshadow I’d never use, and I’m getting one of the shadows as well as the spray. Ugh. I really wish they’d offer a skincare-only box. I never like the cosmetics colors they send. It’s not like they don’t have enough skincare samples to fill boxes with. But then they’re also sending me the clarifying mask which – at 47 – I do not need in the least, so skincare-only still wouldn’t be perfect.

      Today I’m writing in my gratitude journal the following: SWAP SITE.

      • I got the eye shadow too when I only picked the spray because I don’t use eye shadow! I didn’t even want the spray, I just wanted the eye shadow even less. Ugh. Now I’m stuck with both.

      • Well, I got my box today and I am seriously disappointed. The shadow, blush, and yu-be skin cream samples are ridiculously small. The volumizing spray is a good size, but obviously the least of all the evils. Clay mask looks awesome, decent .5 oz size. The rest is a joke. Sigh…

  24. Groan..please box subscriptions, pleeease give me a break from dry shampoos..

    • You know what’s so funny I get five boxes a month for two years and I never ever got a dry shampoo! I think I am the only one! Lol

  25. I went with the curated but was considering splurging on a second box. So far I am not seeing anything fantastic going around. I really thought we’d all get chocolate.

    • I did get a cute box of chocolates, eye shadow, scrub, lip/cheek stain, hand cream, and leave in conditioner.

  26. My November box is still up
