E-mails went out to Birchbox Aces today (and are probably still on their way to some) allowing subscribers to pick their November Samples! This month you have a choice between a sample in the November “Giving” themed box or you can opt for “The Happy Holiday Hacks” box. Here are all the details:

I opted for the Royal Apothic Cuppa Cuppa Firming Tea Treatment Mask for my first box and am hoping to snag the Happy Holiday Hacks Box on my second account.  I am not an Ace on that one, so that e-mail won’t arrive until tomorrow.

Did you get your selection e-mail yet for the November Birchbox?  What item are you picking this month?  What do you think of the preset themed boxes (The Everygirl Box, The Fashionista Box, the Laggies Box and this month’s Happy Holiday Hacks Box)?  Are you loving them like I am?

    This was a month I could barely choose between the initial offerings, they looked so good but I saw the Holiday Hacks box and had to have it. I’ve always wanted to try the Amika Dry Shampoo, Dr. Lipp is one of my absolute fave BB finds, I’ve always wanted a candle in my box and that mask looks great. I kind of can’t wait.

    I got the Holiday Hacks box on my first account. I was going to get the tea mask on my second account, but it said I selected the holiday hacks box there too. I had this issue last month as well. My “pick” would register on both accounts. I will have to email birchbox to get it fixed.

      Way too many good picks this month!

    The happy holiday hacks box. As soon as I seen the word candle my choice was made. I can never have too many candles

    Since I missed out on all the “special” boxes the previous months, I opted for the Holiday Hacks but if I didn’t get it would have been all over the tea mask! Very excited for next month!

    Great choices this month. It was a hard decision. I went with the hair mask. I was going to pick the tea mask until I received my October Gourmet Body Treats box which had a full size jar of tea mask. My sister tried the GBT tea mask a few times and is planing to pick the tea mask for her choice. I won’t complain if the tea mask shows up in my box 🙂

    Got the Laggies box last month, and loved it! This time I picked the cuppa cuppa. The Holiday Hacks looks awesome too 🙂

    I went for the Juice Beauty peel. I’m kind of afraid of peels but want to see if they will work for me. Juice Beauty products have been compatible with my skin in the past and I figured this would be mild, so I thought it would be a nice place to start. (Avoided the themed box because I don’t need any more mascara and I don’t use dry shampoo.) But really, I would’ve been OK with any of the sample choices, although Birchbox hair samples never even have enough for one use for me — I have really long, thick hair.

  8. I opted for the holiday box this time, I really like the random surprise for the regular Birchbox but figured I’d switch it up this month 🙂

    I got over-excited to pick my sample and didn’t even look at the Holiday box contents until after I made my selection. I am SLIGHTLY regretting not getting it though…I love and would use all those items, so hoping that my box is just as good!

    I was so hard to choose this month! I went with the cuppa cuppa mask too, I kind wish I could have made a box with all the sample choices, haha. I was this close to getting the HHH box but I know I wouldn’t use the mascara or the shampoo.

    I might have picked the cuppa cuppa if I had realized it was a face mask. Most of the other samples were repeats for me. I have not tried the Amika hair mask and was considering it before I chose the holiday box. I had previously bought a full size of the Amika dry shampoo and knew I would like it. I have tried the Dr lipps before and it is okay. The candle really sold me, but I look forward to trying a new mascara and the Dr Jart mask as well.

    dry shampoo and mascara, dry shampoo and mascara, and… more dry shampoo and mascara… is it my imagination or has this become the leitmotif of sub-boxes?

    I picked the Happy Holiday Hacks Box, I was able to get early access with the promo, when you refer a friend in October. I am so glad they did that I actual was able to get the guest box with no problem. I am a mascara junkie and love candles so this box was calling my name!!!

    1. Jennifer

      I picked it for my second account today. I absolutely cannot wait for Birchbox this month!

  15. Jennifer

    By the time I got the email, everything was sold out! So I have no idea what I’m getting. Kinda puts me in a funny mood though… why bother sending me this email to choose something when *nothing* is available?

    1. Jennifer

      Totally email birchbox! I did this yesterday when I got the email for my selection on my second account. The holiday hacks box was sold out so I just emailed them and they confirmed my selection. I just used the contact form on their site.
