  1. This is my first birchbox, any advice on what is best? Curated or be surprised? I’m excited!

    • I like the surprise element so I’ve never done a curated box (have bought a few in the shop). Sometimes I don’t even choose a sample, but Tata Harper products are pricey and I’ve been dying to try them so I chose that this month!

  2. I’m really torn for this month. While I am absolutely loving the pillow spray and Glamglow, I dislike that lipstick and another face moisturizer almost as much as I like the aforementioned products. I like Dr. Brandt but don’t have this product. And that Tata resurfacing mask looks good too. Hmm…decisions, decisions. Maybe I will go with sample choice and chance that I can buy or add-on a curated box later in the month.

    • You can already buy the curated! Search “curated”

  3. I like the idea of the pillow spray and that it’s a different idea/product. I do love Oribe but I just don’t use that much dry shampoo. The lipstick isn’t a good color for me, I don’t need mouisturizer right now, and I’m full up on masks.

    I went with the Dr. Brandt because I love scrubby exfoliators. I think I’ve used this one before, but I’m sure I’ll like it again. I felt like I should maybe go with the Tata Harper because of the panache of the brand, but I really think I’ll use/like the Dr. Brandt better.

  4. I really want to subscribe but I’m trying to wait for black friday to hopefully get 25% off like they had last year. aaah, so far away.

  5. Going with the curated box but none of it excites me. Haven’t really received anything lately that I love.

  6. Does anyone know if I resubscribe today, will I be able to choose my October sample/curated box on the 28th?

    • I just resubbed today. I contacted customer service letting them know the curated box was what I wanted and I just got a reply that they reserved it for me as my October box. I am an Ace so I don’t know if it made a difference but you can try contacting them if you resub.

  7. Went for curated. I’m excited for every single thing in it but especially for the Glam and the pillow spray!

  8. Finally, some awesome products for sample choice! It was a toss-up for me between the Tata Harper and the curated box, but I went with the Tata Harper and will keep my fingers crossed that they put the curated box up for separate purchase.

    • Same!

    • Same here.

    • Agreed, fingers crossed! They haven’t this good of a curated in awhile! 🙂

    • Curated is up for separate purchase – you can find it by searching for “pillow spray” on the site.

      • Thanks for posting! Just got this box!

  9. it won’t let me into the selection page …..

  10. I have a second account and am glad that I have one. I plan to grab a curated box for one and maybe choose the Tata Harper for the other. I’m not sure though. I am pretty torn over those sample choices. I love all 3 brands lol.

    • How do you get a second account? Do you have it sent to a second address, or is it with a different email? I was thinking of doing this, but not sure how.

      • I have two accounts, and I have them shipped to the same address, but use different emails. I think you can have a regular BB sub along with a BB Man sub on one email, but not two of the same types of subs on the same email.

  11. Dr. Brandt skin exfoliant. I just finished another sample of it last night, perfect timing!! Thanks for the reminder.

  12. I went for the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask; super excited to try this. I’ve heard great things.

  13. I got the curated box.
