  1. Looks like this box is now available… I’m going for it!!

    • Thanks! I went ahead and grabbed one too. Used coupon and some points so it was only $15 🙂

      • Same here; with the 20% off and just $10 in points; got the box and pick 2 samples for $26. Well worth it in my book! Excited for it to ship 🙂

    • Thanks for letting us know!!

  2. Cool! Love the mix of beauty and other products. Earbuds retail for $20 and have some cool features plus the socks and water bottle seem cool.

  3. gosh just so not impressed. I love the idea of the ear phones but that’s it.

  4. I am actually really excited about this one! I have been wanting that water bottle for awhile now for my car and wanted to try bombas; so that makes the box worth it to me. I know some ladies like the beauty LE boxes better; but I’m a sucker for a lifestyle one. My favorite was the Free For All; I found so many amazing products in that box and the Conscious Commerce box.

  5. I like the theme, but I see nothing here that I can’t live without.

    • Yep. Nothing I love more than a good fitness box, but only the socks in this one really appeal to me… not worth it.

  6. I didn’t see them video because u don’t have periscope which is annoying- I wish they would have just stuck to YouTube. I personally love Rachel in all the videos- she is fun! This box is not at all appealing to me. I don’t enjoy a fitness theme, rather a box with luxe makeup!

    • If you are interested in watching the unboxing you should give it a try- I dont have periscope and I was still able to watch it!

  7. Did those codes work for anyone, or have I just already used all of the before? ?

  8. Looks like a nice box spoiler, but I’m usually not impressed by them until Liz reviews them, then I’m sold what with the good value, points and a coupon. Gotta get those
    -NOT the Powerball Winner in CA lol 😛

  9. I watched the Periscope vid. I like:
    The water bottle, which I didn’t add on to a reg. BB.
    The socks
    The facial wipes ( probably, if mild)
    The lip gloss should be nice
    And I don’t have a waterproof eyeliner, I don’t think

    So I am sure I would use 5 products, and very sure I would not use 3:
    I would not use:
    Klorane or any other dry shampoo
    Whish shaving cream as I use a liquid body cleanser which is perfect for shaving and is more manageable.
    Ear Buds. They never work well or long.

  10. On the fence. I have $40 in points and have been waiting for a good LE box… but nothing here is making my skirt fly up. I could always use socks I guess… but the thought of more eyeliner, earbuds, or dry shampoo makes me want to gouge my own eyes out. Guess it comes down to the bottle… reviews aren’t great. I dither…

    • Maybe if I wait there will be a good Valentine’s LE…

      • That’s my hope, too. This box isn’t doing it for me. I loved last year’s new year box, and kept and used all but one item.

  11. Eh, I like the socks & the balm, Good Lord enough earbuds already.

  12. I’ve been wanting the BKR bottle for months now. . . for just a few $$ more than the bottle costs (plus i’m sure I can use a coupon and I have $10 in points) I can get the entire box. Sold!

    I’m not excited about the Supergoop spray – I got it in a Popsugar box and it doesn’t spray evenly and gets poor reviews on Beautypedia. Otherwise everything else is pretty great.

    • seriously – I hated that supergoop spray.

  13. Contents look very similar to the one they offered last year. They should leave fitness themes to MizzFit (Bianca Jade) or hire her.

    • I wish they’d leave Rachel out of videos, period. I’m sure she’s a nice person but she always seems to dominate videos with her over-bubbliness. I was glad when it changed to only Loralei doing the sample choice videos. That periscope reveal was terrible. Target sells Acure products, including those wipes. $6.99. I was anxious for the next LE box, but this one doesn’t really seem worth it. And yes, very similar to last year’s.

  14. Remember when Birchbox was “THE” subscription box the have and LE boxes were an absolute must? Ahhh, the good old days. One more Eyeko and I go….geez.

    • I know! what happened? I never thought I would see the day I would unsubscribe but it is coming…..

  15. I’ve been waiting on a LE box from BB. Unfortunately, nothing screams out to me with this one. Maybe I’ll wait till Liz reviews it; and get sucked in like I always do. : )

  16. I really hope it still ships to Hawaii, despite the one prohibited item (dry shampoo) but I’m guessing no. Bummer, I love the ARROW lip balm so much!

    • It seems like we can’t get our hands on so many LE boxes here in Hawaii! I actually asked them awhile ago if they could just leave out the prohibited item, but they said no 🙁

      • I honestly think it must have something to do with their shipper Newgistics because there are plenty of people who ship those items to Hawaii (Like PSMH!)

  17. I would love it and will hopefully be able to get one. Hope is not like the PopSugar Target Box where they sale out in a very short time.

    Thanks Liz for the heads up.

  18. Liz, do you know which items (if any) are full sized? Thanks!

  19. Oh heck yeah! I was hoping a LE box would come out soon so I could use my points and this has a lot of things I wanted to get! Yeahhhhh

  20. I’m new to subscription boxes, so this,may be a good one for me to grab. I’ve been wanting to subscribe to BB, but have been holding off for a great deal….looks like I missed them all in December. Does anyone know if they regularly run specials through Ruelala or that includes 20% or more off annual subscription, free deluxe sample kit to join, etc??

    • I didn’t really see many deals like that until November/December last year. It’s possible it was the start of a new era of deals, but was probably just the holidays sales (was similar in 2014).

      Before I signed up for a year with 30% off I used to regularly subscribe monthly with specials (100 points, a free gift) and then unsubscribe. It sounds like they may be cracking down a bit on that, but it will definitely be good for at least the first month.

  21. Probs… I have a 25% off coupon for getting my 16th box (weird but I’ll take it!) and $10 in points so I can get it for under $25 and the water bottle alone is worth that much to me!

  22. Not tempting (the lifestyle boxes rarely are for me). Which is fine because I already spent like $60 in the Birchbox shop today…

  23. Pity for me I keep thinking an LE box will be irresistible, but, I cancelled my regular subs (2 of them) with BB specifically because of constant Eyeko, Harvey Prince, and the various headphones, made me nuts to keep seeing those same items no matter what I changed in profile! Great for those who don’t have these things in mass already though. I personally would love to see another box with good variety like the Prestige CW from 2013 (the one with the Elizabeth Arden Prevage sample).

  24. This box looks great! I love the Bombas socks, can always use more earphones and water bottles plus I have some points that I have been saving up so it works out perfect!

  25. Looking over prices though, I’m tempted to grab this at a discount with points just for gifting.

  26. Well if these are all full size than this is a no brainer! I will grab it as soon as you post it available liz!

    • Its not full-size. I think only the eyeliner is. 🙁

      • Where do you see that Mandy? I just wanted to go to the info site. Obviously some of them are full size – socks, bottle, earphones.

        • The lifestyle items are full size.
          Of the beauty products, I think the eyeliner and lip balm are full size.

          I saw the periscope unboxing. 🙂

        • I think the socks, eyeliner, earbuds, water bottle, arrow, and wipes will be full size and the three others sample sizes.

  27. Too much of the same stuff I’m still always using up, don’t need more headphones, socks I can grab on their own, and I grabbed the lavender BKR bottle this past July when it was an add-on I think. It’s great if you want the bottle and some of the toiletries though I guess.
