Birchbox! November 2011

21 Nov

November’s Birchbox has arrived (finally) lol. This month they included a pretty little surprise! It’s called the BaubleBar Black Wood Pop Bracelet. The first 10,000 subscribers with the most Birchbox points received one. It sells for $20 from so it was definitely a nice little treat to receive :)

I got box #22 which included the following :

  • LaROCCA Champagne and Shimmer Supreme Creme
  • Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Cologne Absolue
  • Two Paperdolls Coasters
  • BORGHESE Fango Active Mud Face & Body
  • Zoya Gems & Jewels Collection

I didn’t fall in love with any of this month’s samples, but I think it was definitely worth the $10 I paid, especially considering they threw in the bracelet. The only item I was WTFing about was the coasters lol. Seriously, coasters? Paper coasters? Just… yeah. Everything else I enjoyed trying and sampling. I think this is one of the better boxes I’ve received in the last few months. I’m excited to see if they do something fun for their December holiday box!




Disclaimer: Box was purchased by me with my own money.

      Oh yeah! There are a crap load of box varations that get sent out. On the shipping sticker it will say BB3 or BB22 or BB11, etc lol. That is your box variation number :)

    This was my first BirchBox and it was horrible..I got a hair tie that looked like a broken hair band re-tied, a mini sample of kate spade perfum (the kind u get free anyplace)a mini Joyer lip conditioner, the only deluxe sample I got was a funky smelling eucalyptus lotion & a Zoya Denim nail polish.I was soo beyond disappointed I am going to cancel is my next box is this bad!

      I meant if my next box is this bad it will be my last. I felt sooo ripped off!

        OMG I know exactly what samples you’re talking about because I’ve gotten all of those in past boxes! The hair tie was so dumb lol. It’s big selling point was that it doesn’t crimp your hair.. but.. yes it does? and the Jouer Lip Conditioner was SO SO SO SUPER SMALL. I remember how disappointed I was with that stuff too. I also wrote a very lengthy feedback review about the vial of perfume being included as a sample. If you’re going to market DELUXE samples, then don’t send me a tiny little vial of perfume that doesn’t even have an atomizer.

        Even though those samples sucked, I hope you stay with BirchBox for a bit longer because I really have gotten some great items from them too. I’ll cross my fingers for your future boxes :)
