  1. I’m pretty happy about mine.
    theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac
    Cargo Land Down Under Eye Shadow Palette
    Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm
    Number 4™ L’eau de Mare Hydrating Condition
    Number 4™ L’eau de Mare Hydrating Shampoo
    Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum

  2. UGH my box still isn’t showing!

    • Mine isn’t either. 🙁

      • Neither is mine!

    • Same. Me either ?

    • Me neither!

      • Me too! Still waiting for my reveal. I keep checking.

  3. Catherine Malandrino perfume samples two months in a row? Different kinds, but still… Yet another reddish lip gloss to add to my clutter. I think Birchbox and I may be parting ways after I cash in my points.

  4. I know it’s off topic but has anyone gotten multiple of the mystery bonus boxes, and gotten 2 different boxes. I bought 3 of them, all at different times and I have gotten 3 of the same (November 2015) box with the same exact items in it

    • I also got the Nov box (not the same items as my original Nov box). Two more on the way, hopefully not all the same!

    • I got three Mystery boxes, and ALL 3 boxes were November boxes and ALL 3 had identical contents.

    • I got three of the exact same kind too. BirchBox sent a “replacement” but it was still the same. They’re all November boxes.

      • Wow the replacement was the same box. That ridicules! They refunded my money because of it.

    • November was the month I was missing an item. So I’m just curious did any of you receive the temple lagoon body/bath gel in your mystery november boxes?? They told me they were out of it so I didn’t get it. Just got 4 items.

  5. I believe that in the past, the color of the image was not necessarily the color of the product you received, it was just a thumbnail. Can anyone vouch if that is still true?

    If that’s still the system, the Smashbox trio will probably be in Filter, at least for the curated box (like Liz’s, even though it shows purple shades.) It’s possible there will be another variation though for the random boxes… that would be fun!

    • Yeah. One month it was showing a brown Cargo eye crayon trio for me. Although I rightly assumed I would only get one eye crayon, the one that arrived was none of the colors showing (it was a pretty teal instead).

  6. I went with the curated box and am excited, but I’m a little jealous of everyone getting the stainiac. I totally would have gone for that I’d it was a sample choice.

    • I’m kind of hoping the treStiQue (which I’m getting) comes in color variations and isn’t only the green. They have swatches on their website and the colors look gorgeous.

  7. I’m receiving
    -The Body Shop Green Tea Body Butter
    – Terax Hair Care Crema
    – Tocca perfume sample
    – Arrow Boost Color Enhancing lip balm
    – Hey Honey Peel Off Mask

    This is my second box. My profile states no more than 6 samples of perfume yet this is my second perfume sample. Also I received the exact same lip balm in my February box. Does this happen a lot ( getting the exact same product two months in a row)?? So far I’m not very impressed with Birchbox. The samples are tiny not to mention the perfume samples that I can get for free at the mall.

    • They’re not supposed to send the exact same product ever! Unless it’s in a curated box or “pick your own sample” that you purposely chose. If you contact customer service they usually give you points as an apology. But I got your exact box in February. You might be getting a different box for March?

  8. Have to say I have loved all my boxes. What I won’t use I pass to my daughter in law. I think for 10.00 fills my beauty addiction and get to try great stuff.??

  9. How does everyone get Smashbox, Cargo, and Benefit while I get FHI conditioner, Trestique shadow crayon, Wilma Schumann collagen eye pads, Marcelle BB cream, and Parlor blowout spray? I’m quitting Birchbox after this month since I hated everything in my box last month, as well.

  10. I still can’t see my preview, but it sounds like a lot of people are getting great boxes this month! I see a lot of people are getting Cargo items. I have been with Birchbox for going on two years and have never tried anything from them, so I would be thrilled to get something this month!

      • This link worked for me! Thank you for posting it! I passed on the sample choices and the curated box and I’m getting:

        the Balm Stainiac
        Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper Gel
        treStiQue color & smudge shadow crayon
        Juara radiance enzyme scrub
        Supergoop!® Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30

        I’m excited to try all of these!

  11. I’m not thrilled with either of my boxes. For one account I picked the curated and am disappointed that the purple eye shadows are coming instead of the neutral ones I wanted. For the other box, even though I picked the amika dry shampoo, it’s not in the box. Last month wasn’t much better – no chance to pick anything for my non-Ace account and the Ace box had that hair serum for medium/coarse hair when my profile says I have fine hair. Birchbox isn’t as much fun as it used to be because of these disregards to my profile and sample choices.

    • Clam down everybody. I ordered the curated box through the BB store and received it today. The box does have the brown colored smashbox shadows. Check your computer monitors for color settings if it looks purple on your screen. The colors are vanilla (light brown), sable (medium brown), and Sumatra (dark brown)- all Browns. FYI I use Sumatra as an eyebrow fill and vanilla as a highlighter and they last all day, so here are additional ways to use the mini shadows.

      • Thanks for your reassurance, but the listing for the original box says that the eyeshadow in the box is in the Filter color selection, and my preview says that I am receiving the Vignette color selection which us definitely the purples.

        • Correct, Filter are the brown colors. They sometimes show differing product colors in the online previews since it’s the photo that they have already taken. Example, some folks are seeing a full size cargo pallet in their preview, but they will only get a one color tin- it’s happened to me before. They just used the pallet to represent the cargo eyeshadow they send. For the Smashbox, they just used a photo they had of a small trio. So, I think you will get filter like I did, if not, I will trade you for the purple-I like them.

    • Their Facebook video posted a few days ago shows them swatching the palette colors and it is a brown palette.

  12. I am getting:
    theBalm cosmetics Staniac
    Cargo Land Down Under Eye Shadow Pallette (wonder how many colors or if it is the whole pallette)
    Cartier Eau de Cartier Zeste de Soleil
    PARLOR Condition
    PARLOR Shampoo
    Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser

  13. I am getting:

    the Balm Staniac
    treStiQue color & smudge shadow crayon
    Cartier eau de Cartier eau de toilette
    Juara radiance enzyme scrub
    Number 4 L’eau de mare hydrating shampoo and conditioner…

    I got my aunt a sub for Christmas, and I like hers better lol:

    Living proof perfect hair day fresh cut
    Kiehl’s super multi-corrective eye-opening serum
    Cargo land down under eye shadow
    the Balm Staniac
    Number 4 L’eau de mare hydrating shampoo and conditioner

  14. I’m getting
    Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads,
    Cargo Land Down Under Eyeshadow
    Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
    COOLA® SPF 50 Sport – Mango
    Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
    I want more makeup!!

    • The Coola mango is amazing!

  15. I’m getting:

    theBalm Stainiac: Super pumped for this one!

    trèStiQue Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon: I really like tresStiQue so pretty happy with this!

    Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads: I don’t have bags or dark circles, but my boyfriend does, so these will go to him. haha

    COOLA® SPF 50 Sport – Mango: I have extremely fair skin so I’m pretty excited about this one!

    amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo: This was my sample choice. I’ve heard a lot about this dry shampoo so I’m excited to try it out.

    Overall it’s a pretty darn good box for me! Especially since I”m actually getting makeup items this month! Didn’t get ANY last month and that was a bit saddening, but they are making it up here with me. 🙂

    • This is what I’m getting. I think its much better than last month. Depends on color of the stain for me though. :-/

      • I’m really really hoping for red as it’s the lipcolor i use the most! What color did you get last moth?

        • Oh, I didn’t mean that I got that. Poor wording, lol.
          My box last month sucked is what I meant lol!

  16. I am pretty excited about this month’s box!
    TheBalm Stainiac
    Parlor Shampoo & Conditioner (my sample choice)
    Catharine Malandrino Style de Paris
    Kiehls Super Multi Corrective Cream
    Cargo Land Down Under Palette

    I’m super happy i can review the shampoo and conditioner, so I’ll get 10 extra BB points!

    • Agreed. That was totally my reasoning in choosing that one!

  17. Super excited as it looks like you’ll get extra points for reviewing the conditioner packet, if you chose the shampoo!

    I’m getting:
    Curl Keeper: Original Curl Keeper
    NEST Dahlia & Vines Eau de Parfum (my first perfume sample with BB although I’ve been a subscriber since October, I’ve been lucky!)
    Parlor Volumizing & Texturing Shampoo & Conditioner (sample choice)
    Trestique Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon
    White & Elm Rose and Argan Serum

    A good box for me, I’m happy! And it seems like the perfume sample won’t be terrible.

  18. I am receiving the same box. While I think the purple eyeshadow is lovely, I have one that is basically the same, and I selected this box for the neutral brown eye shadow trio that was originally shown.

    • I did, too. Really annoyed that the purple shadows are coming instead.

    • Did you receive the Smashbox Eye shadow Trio in Vignete (purplish)? That’s the color trio I like and showed in my preview as what I supposed to receive in my box. However I received the Filter Trio which I already have many eye shadows in similar colors. Would you be interested in trading it?

  19. Here is what I’m getting. Not my best box ever… but a few good things to try.
    trèStiQue Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon
    Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads
    JUARA Radiance Enzyme Scrub
    Number 4™ L’eau de Mare Hydrating Condition – Sample Choice
    Number 4™ L’eau de Mare Hydrating Shampoo – 8.5 oz – Sample Choice
    Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer Oil

    • The primer is awesome. Make sure you try it out.

    • I too am getting this box and am highly dissipointed with it.

  20. I’m so glad I was able to get them to switch mine to the curated box!

  21. I got excited for a moment to peek and then realized I picked the curated box. Ha ha.

  22. ACK! Now I’m disappointed I didn’t get the SmashBox eye shadow as my sample choice. I have one (in browns) and love it and assumed it would be the same colors. I LOVE the purples you’re getting Liz! I think I’ll still be pleased with my March box though.
    ~The Balm Lip/Cheek Stain
    ~FHI Brands Thermal Heat-Activated Conditioner
    ~Trestique Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon
    ~Wilma Schumann Skin Care Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads
    ~Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo

    • bag twins 🙂

  23. I missed the curated box so I didn’t pick a sample bc I wanted none of them which is why I was going to get the curated. But I am happy with what I am getting for the sheer fact that it doesn’t include any of the crappy (FOR ME) sample choices.

    Cynthia Rowley beauty brightening illuminator
    trestique color and smudge eye crayon
    juara radiance enzyme scrub
    Wilma shumann skincare hydrating collagen eye pads
    curl keeper – I feel as though I have received this before from bb…shall see when I go to review. and its the least exciting thing to me since I don’t care for it regardless.

  24. I’m thinking/hoping mine will change because it shows two perfumes right now: Pinrose Moonlight Gypsy (perfume), Pinrose Pillowtalk Poet (perfume), Cargo Eye Shadow Palette, NER:D Face Cleanser, Dr. Lipp Balm, Parlor Shampoo & Conditioner.

    It’s only March and this is my third month getting perfume already 🙁

    • Oh no, that would make me sad, too. Do you have your profile set to no more than six perfume samples per year? Maybe worth checking.

      • I just checked and yes! I guess on the bright side I’m halfway through?

  25. Pinrose Garden Gangster ( how utterly adorable is that name?!!?)

    Pinrose Tambourine Dreamer ( little odd to get two fragrances but since the boxes can change before the 10th and I actually like getting fragrances I’m not too worried)

    Cargo Land Down Under Eye Shadow ( been wanting to try Cargo out and these colors all look AMAZING!)

    White & Elm Rose and Argan Oil Serum ( sometimes I really think BB reads my mind I was just about to buy a serum guess I’m good again! )

    Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow ( we’ll see on this one, I don’t usually go with a dewy look but it has good reviews)

  26. I get two boxes, in the first one I’m getting: The Balm Stainiac, Cargo Land Down Under eyeshadow, Dr. Lipp balm, Wilma Schumann eye pads, and Number 4 hair oil.
    In the second box I’m getting: Not Soap, Radio body wash, Smashbox eyeshadow trio, Cynthia Rowley Illuminator, Amika dry shampoo (sample choice), Benefit Porefessional matte gel primer, Benefit Porefessional pore cleansing mask.
    I’m pretty happy with both!

  27. My box
    Whish Renewing Mud Mask
    Catherine Malandrino Romance Parfum
    Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Liquid Lipstick-The Reds
    Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
    Cynthia Rowley Illuminator

    I am pleased with all.

    • I believe this was the February curated box. I got all of those last month.

      • Oh my goodness you are right. So sorry.

        • Either way I still thought it was an awesome box! 🙂

    • Yep, mine hasn’t updated either! >..<
      I am so eager reading everyone's list right now!

  28. Liz, there is new sample kit for hair : “Detox hair ” for $20 ($28value)

    • Oh, I like that one. Maybe I will pick it up!

    • Oooo! Thank you! 🙂

      • Neuma hair products are AMAZING! I received a full sized styling cream with some Ipsy points and expected nothing from it since Ipsy sometimes has not so good brands. It is an amazing brand and product! Cruelty free! All natural. Hooray!

  29. I wonder if it doesn’t show becuz i signed up yesterday?
    It says i will be getting March box but when i click the link it keep sending me to ‘Shop’ page and nothing else 🙁

      • Thanks for that. But mine still doesnt show. it goes to the page but nothings there.
        Thanks tho!

  30. I picked the curated box on my Ace account; but I didn’t get to pick a sample on my 2nd account. I can’t get the box to show either.

  31. I passed on the sample choices and the curated box – big mistake.
    -Zoey Van Jones Tinted Brow Gel
    -Cartier Eau De Cartier Eau de Toilette Spray
    -Living proof.® Perfect hair Day™ (PhD) Fresh Cut
    -Benefit They’re Real! Tinted Lash Primer
    -Benefit the POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel
    -Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm

    I’m excited about the porefessional, but the eyelash/eyebrow things are completely useless for me (my eyebrows thick dark and barely tamed), another perfume (ugh!), and the hair product is a dupe for something I already have. Such a bad box, and I skipped out on the under eye pads and milk lipstick for this?!?!

    • Man, I would LOVE to get that box! I would use every single thing, even the perfume!

      • Me too! That’s the best box I’ve seen. Perfume ehh, but when you get 6 items, still love it.

    • I got the same box and am SO disappointed! Well, I gave it three months. I’m going to cash out my points and cancel!

  32. Ooh, good month for me: The Balm Stainiac, Amika Perk Up dry shampoo (my sample choice), Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads, trèStiQue Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon & FHI Heat Hot Sauce Thermal Heat-Activated Conditioner. Looking forward to trying them all!

    • 🙂

    • We’re bag twins! I’m excited to try everything too! The only thing that bothers me a little bit is that I got a conditioner product very similar to this last month. I’m all for trying new products, but I wish they wouldn’t have been back to back. Other than that, it looks pretty good!

    • I got the same box too! Looking forward to trying that eye shadow stick. I’ve never tried that color. I stick to very subtle neutrals. I love leave in conditioner. Those eye pads will be fun to try too. I’m pleased with my box this month. Not overly excited, but happy. ?

      • Just realized that the stain in for lip and cheek! Now I’m really liking my box.

    • I got the exact same box, also very excited about it!

    • Box twins! I’m excited about the Amika and the eye pads, but the rest of the box is just okay to me. I’ll probably swap the eye crayon and the Stainiac.

  33. I’m excited about my box, all of these are new to me. >3

    I will be receiving :

    * theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen
    * FHI Heat Hot Sauce Thermal Heat-activated Conditioner
    * treStiQue Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine
    * Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads
    * amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo (sample choice)

    • Twinsies 🙂

      • Yes!

    • How do you what color Stainiac you got?

      • On the birchbox site they only have one color available, beauty queen. Hope this really be the color of our sample sizes! Seems nice, light, build able.

    • I’m getting the exact same…on both of my completely different profiles. That’s a first! I wonder if it is related to having chosen the dry shampoo on both accounts? I know lots of people complain about receiving dry shampoo but I go through so much of it with my lob that I can never get enough!

  34. Ooh, good box for me this month.

    TheBalm Stainiac
    Cargo Eyeshadow (single or mini sample palette, I guess)
    Blocki This Grand Affair fragrance (retails for $165 FS and is not Harvey Prince so I will probably like it)
    N. 4 Reconstructing Masque
    N. 4 Clarifying Shampoo
    Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream

    • The Cargo shadow is a generous duo that comes in the same tins as their blush samples. They show it in their March “get ready with me” video.

      • Thanks. I don’t watch the videos so I never would have known otherwise.

        • I never watch the videos but I was curious about the Cargo sample and googled it and the video came up. I love those little tins that Cargo sends out. I travel with my work so I LOVE being able to pack those instead of full-sized blushes and shadows.

    • That’s what I’m getting two. I don’t know what I keep expecting from Birchbox, but I keep being underwhelmed by what I’m getting. But maybe that’s just bound to happen after subscribing for over a year.

  35. Maybe that’s because it’s the curated box? I was just checking mine, but I picked samples.

    • Nevermind. I got mine to show too. Here’s what I’m getting, I’m so excited:
      theBalm cosmetics Stainiac
      NER:D Skincare Brightening face cleanser
      Smashbox Eyeshadow trio
      Parlor Volumizing shampoo
      Parlor Volumizing conditioner
      Kate Spade Walk on Air perfume

      My first two ever boxes with BB were curated box, so I’m super stoked to get customized samples. They all seem perfect for me!

      • I am jealous of your box! Stainiac is one of the few products I actually buy since boxes keep me supplied with so many staples. It is the best stain out there, hands down! And I just bought the Kate Spade Walk on Air and it smells heavenly.

      • I’m getting the same box! Very excited for this one. I hope the eyeshadow trio is different from the curated box one, since I’ve already ordered one of those as well…

  36. I passed on the sample choices and this was one of my best boxes in awhile! Cargo shadow, The Balm Staniac, Dr Lipp Miracle Balm, Wilma Shumann Collagen Eye Pads, and Number 4 Repair Oil. An no shampoo!!!!

    • I got the same box and I’m thrilled with it!
