  1. Ugh, I just saw the samples I’m getting in November’s box…not happy. Shampoo/conditioner from Beauty Protector, Ursa Major face wipe, too cool for school cream (which I chose) and LAQA & Co blush& highlighter (which is probably the best thing in there) it’s no where near what fits my profile AND I’m a beta member still…shoulda just got the curated box. Hope everyone else gets a good box this month! Birchbox definitely missed the mark on mine lol

  2. I’m torn would like to try the Too Cool for School, but I know if I pick the sample choice I’ll probably get 4 very tiny samples I don’t want so I’ll probably do the curated box again. I like at least 3 of the items in the curated box. I have been seeing the Too Cool for School I a lot of my sub boxes lately, but never receive it. Hope I’ll get it in my November Allure box.

  3. Just cancelled. Tiny samples, box that gets recycled, ignored profile (my fine, straight hair does not need products foe curly hair). They started to lose me when they stopped rewarding reviews. There’s no incentive to stay, especially when I get the same samples months earlier in other subs, usually in larger sizes.

    • I totally agree with you. I have had the same experience with them, during my one year subscription. November is my last box.

  4. Too Cool is too heavy for my liking. I have the full size hair cream from a past Boxycharm. Stila mascara it is.

  5. I just clicked the sign up link and it says ‘Get the October Box’ on the Birchbox site still. Anyone know if I’ll actually get October if I sign up now? I’m only interested in November for the curated box. I put this same question up to the CS at Birchbox, I’ll add the answer in later if anyone else is interested. In the meantime, lemme know if you know! ; )

    • @Sara – Yes, you’ll get the October box if you sign up now. I asked this exact same question last month around this time and was advised to wait until the last couple of days of the month to subscribe if you do not want this month’s box.

    • It said the same thing when I was signing up. Then after it asked me what I wanted to add on to my nov. box. So, I’m guessing my 1st box is going to be Nov. be still a bit confused.

      • @Michelle – if you look at the email they sent with your order number, there is a picture of which month’s box you will be getting with that order. I just signed up as well and mine is a picture of the October box.

        • I signed up today because I actually wanted the October curated box. I had read that the first month you sub, you get the curated box and starting with your 2nd box, you get to pick your sample.

          • I don’t think that’s accurate, I’m sorry to say. I signed up for October and did not get the curated box.

          • The first month they pick samples for you then the second month you’re able to pick after that

    • Follow up: I got a response from Birchbox that said due to high volumes there would be a delay in answering my question. So…I can’t add any relevant info just yet. Thanks for the replies I received here, you guys rock : )

      • For anyone interested, here’s the exact reply I got from Birchbox CS: “In order to make a Sample Choice for November’s Curated Box, you’ll need to subscribe with us for the October box. If you sign up after November 1st, you can skip the October box but we will not be able to guarantee the Curated Box for next month.”

  6. I think I’m going to give Birchbox one last try (got the birthday box, which i think was curated, and October’s curated). I’m going to pick the mascara this time and do a sample choice box. hopefully it’ll match my profile.

  7. If you had to pick between allure and birchbox, which would you pick?

    • Allure! And they have promos all the time. But even at $15 Allure is a great box.

      • Thank you 🙂

    • I just started getting the Allure box in September and I am really impressed so far. Everything is stuff I want to try. I quit Birchbox when they did the Gwyneth collab box and one of the items was a freaking Luna bar. I was actually considering signing up for Birchbox again but seeing what’s in it and reading these comments made my realize it would be a mistake.

  8. Beware of that Marcelle Vitamin c cream. I received in a box(July?August?)and it created a horrible rash recently as the vitamin c quickly destabilized. I had zombie eyes for a week. Check those expiration dates birchbox(ers)! I did love it when it was fresh though…

    • Oh no. That’s awful. Thanks for the tip.

  9. I haven’t tried any of the sample choices, and I would love to hear some reviews before I pick.

    None of them really speak to me. I was very excited about Octobers sample selections but not this month… you can’t win them all. But I have only been interested in a couple items from each months box. The samples birch sends me don’t correlate with my likes and profile AT ALL. The sample selection is always my hero item that keeps me coming back. without a good sample choice I am afraid this entire box will be a miss for me. 🙁

    • The Juara Candlenut Body Crème is amazing. I have the full size. It smells so good!

      • I 2nd this! I used up a few samples of the Juara Body Crème (but as a hand cream), and I loved how it felt & smelled.

    • The too cool for school cream is very thick and heavily fragranced. It reminds me of something Ive smelled before, has a musky scent. It did not do much for me and I didn’t care for it when I got a sample in last years Play box.

      The Briogeo is great if you blow dry your hair. Its a heat protectant and it smells wonderful. I feel like it makes my hair soft, but who really knows if it protects your hair from hot tools. I did like it well enough to buy a full size.

      Have not tried the stila mascara, but it looks like a good item to try.

      In the curated, I’ve had the smashbox in the same color and it looks awful on me. It leans orange on me and the formula was very drying. I’ve gotten the Juara cream and in my opinion it smells awful, very musky and masculine.

      • Wow! Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I really liked my Egg Mellow Cream. It is a little thick and has a slight (to me), sweet (to me) fragrance. I liked the way it worked on my skin. It will be my sample choice this month.

        • I like the Egg Mellow Cream too!!

  10. I know most people get on mascara overload from boxes, but I kind of love not having to ever buy it and be able to switch them out all the time if I don’t like one. That said, the Stila one I’ve tried before and LOVE, so I will definitely be choosing that as my sample choice! It’s super volumizing and not clumpy.

  11. I love the curated box this time! And that means I can buy it in the shop for $10 and still do the sample choice option to get other products. 🙂

  12. I actually like the curated box this time! And, you get a free box on sign up. $10 for 10 product items isn’t shabby IMO. I might do it. Might.

    • I have been holding out and haven’t signed up yet either but you’re right, 10 products for $10 is one heck of an incentive.

    • Good luck! The last time I signed up with the bonus box promo, my second box was clearly just leftovers based on the three products they sent me for curly hair. (My hair isn’t curly even when it comes off of hot rollers.)

  13. I think I’m going to cancel. I got the too cool for school and smashbox lippie in a play box last year, both of which I did not like. I have the full size Briogeo, and everything else just does not float my boat. Very disappointed after such an awesome October!

  14. I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but daaaaaamn, Birchbox! Way to go for November. I wonder if this will be a fluke or if they’re going to pay more attention to normal sample choice/curated box since they’re stopping the Beta Select thing.
