This is my first box, and I’m just getting a bunch of random stuff from the various curated boxes. It looks like the least desirable items from the whole month, IMO. White shadow stick, anyone? Stinky kale shampoo and conditioner? Do I understand correctly that I should be able to choose for January and actually get a curated box?

Your Friends @MSA

Hi Ruth! You can choose one of your samples each month starting with your second box according to the Birchbox website.

Tiffany Schmidt

I resubscribed to Birchbox yesterday because I wanted that box! Such a cool idea. I chose box #2 because I wanted the smith and cult nail polish

Angela

I like box 2. I’ve never been able to get a box yet with the nail polish…..always out before I could get it. I’m not interested much in the other options. I used to love Birchbox but the value of it has decreased significantly for me lately because there are too many repeats and if they have anything good that I want….they run out.

Sherry Young

I agree, It’s worse being given an option and it not being available than having no option at all. If they give it as an option, I think it should not be a limited supply.

Sherry Young

I thought I would really like birchbox since I get to choose my box, but I’m always left a little disappointed with the choices. I get play, ipsy, birchbox, allure, and beautyfix. I love beautyfix and play for the products. I like ipsy for the add-ons. Allure seems to be hit or miss, but birchbox is always sub par. I guess it’s going to have to go.

Theresa

What are aces ?

Nat

If you spend at least $300 on Birchbox website

RoguesEn3D

Well, I’m not an Ace so #4 is out. The only other that has anything for me is #2.

Rachel

What is the deadline to subscribe so that I’m able to select my preference for December?

Laura

Mmph. I cancelled. a few months back and this just reminds me of my dilemma with BB…love the boxes themselves…have basically no use for the items.

Nat

Customization for December opens 11/26 for aces and 11/27 for everyone else. I suspect box 2 will be sold out very fast. And the boxes will be mailed by the 10th. So definitely before 10th but not sure when the cutoff is

Ariel

New to Birchbox and it’s not on their site, but wondering when if I will be able to subscribe in December to be able to choose? Thanks!

Jkfinl

You don’t get to choose your first box, at least I didn’t.

Melissa

I want like one product from each box. Too bad we can’t make our own box.

Luna

Just to add on to Marion’s comment, for the holidays Birchbox will have pop-up shops in 500 Walgreens (they have 44 permanent store locations). A couple of new things for the holidays is that with the purchase of a 6-month gift card, you can get a build-your-own-Birchbox for free in store, plus they have an exclusive Walgreens x Birchbox advent calendar that’s different than the calendar that’s on BB’s site.

To find out if a Walgreens has a BB pop up shop near you go to:
birchbox dot com/holidayatwalgreens

Their advent calendar is also available on Walgreens site and in stores.

It’s $35, and includes:
– Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara
– No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream SPF 30
– Number 4 Jour d’automne Smoothing Balm
– IPKN Radiant Cream Primer SPF 15
– TLW Time Is Precious Hair Shot Ampoule
– Lipstick Queen Mornin’ Sunshine Lipstick
– NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Repair Treatment Masque
– Air Repair Super Hydrating Eye Cream
– ModelCo LIP PLUMPER Hydra Lip Therapy
– Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – Black
– Love of Color Liquid Shimmer Shadow – Moonlight
– Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips

Drminniecooper

Wow, thank you for this info! I checked and there is a BB popup shop at a Walgreens near me, and I live in the middle of nowhere! I Will check it out tomorrow.

Marion

You can at ~select~ Walgreens, lol.

Actually, that would make a pretty cool feature on MSA. I’d love to see what the customized Birchbox experience is like.

Jen

Same! It happens every month too, I always wish we could make our own boxes LoL

Kay

I thought I would like Box 2 first, then I am thinking of Box 4. I don’t do my nails often enough and the color on MAC lipstick might not work for me (wash me out) and a perfume sample… decisions decisions.

Alice R

Box 4 looks good to me, too!

Anna

I’m hoping box 2 will be available when I get a choice.

Amanda

I know, everyone wants box 2. Let’s just hope there will be plenty for people to actually get it.

Kaara

Does anyone know, if I swap for the Full Size product will I still get the box? I’m torn between box 2 and the full size Lipstick Queen, but that photo frame box is adorable and would be a perfect little jewelry box!

Amanda

When I swapped it didn’t come with a box. So probably not.

Dea

When I swapped for a full-size leave-in protector, it came without that month’s box. Best not to count on it.

Kelly

Last month I got the full sized Benefit blush and it came in the box!

Dea

Yes, Box 2. Terrific-looking box.

tammy g.

#2 for me as well…can’t wait for this box.

Cyndi

Boxes 2 and 4 look good. In box 4, I wonder what color the Lipstick Queen Method in the Madness will be included?

Liz

I went to check Birchbox and I don’t see Box 4 listed as an option, even though I am an ACE. Anyway, I think that the lipstick is probably in the shade Peculiar Pink, based on the picture.

Kaara

I was lookimg up some of tjese items to see what I should pick, and gound out that the MAC lipstick looks to be discontinued- does that mean that Birchbox is giving us old items?? I was also looking up various Lipstick Queen lipsticks(making a wish list!) and a bunch of the ones Birchbox has aren’t listed on the Ulta site, so I’m now wondering if those are discontinued as well and Birchbox is still selling them? Just seems odd to me.

Ashley Marie

Easy one. #2

Marissa

I just resubscribed for the first time since 2017 for box 2! When do we get to pick the choices?? Its been a very long time for me lol

Stephanie

I hope this box is still available after the ACEs choose. This box is by far the best.

Emma

Well, this Ace wants box 4. 😉

Rachel

Can I just say tht I rlly want the box like just the box bec it is beautiful!!

Liz

Box 2 is a no brainer for me! Full size MAC lipstick and Smith & Cult polish. Birchbox has made me a S&C nail polish stan. It is honestly the best polish I have ever tried. The ACE exclusive box does not pique my interest. I like those shadow sticks, but there is no WOW product in that box for me. I wonder if it will open up for non-ACEs eventually since I don’t see it being that popular.

Also, I love the picture frame box idea!

Marion

Hmmmm. Some of these are… interesting.

I think I may try for the Frog Prince lipstick.

SunnyT

Does anyone know what color Mac lipstick that is in box #2?

Liz

On the website it says the product is: M·A·C Cosmetics Frost Lipstick in Delish

SunnyT

Thanks Liz!

Nat

I like #2. Might reactivate for that one

Salena

If I subscribe today, will I be able to choose from the curated boxes?

Nat

I think so, but first you will get a random November box. So you will be charged for November and December.

Emily

#2 for me!
