Birchbox has had a lot of specially curated boxes and sample choices lately. This month, I choose not to pick a sample or the Lo Bosworth box; however, I was missing a sample.
I emailed them on Sunday night (when I finally checked the mail) and got a response by 11 a.m. the next day stating they were sorry for the missing item and would ship a replaced, which would take up to 10 days.
I'll be sure to update the post with more information about how that process goes later this month.
Update 12/26/14: As I mentioned above, I contacted Birchbox on Dec. 14 about the missing sample. On Dec. 15, they emailed me stating they'd replace it and I'd get a separate tracking number. Then on Dec. 23, I got another email stating that sample was out of stock so they'd give me 100 Birchbox points instead.
If you're new to Birchbox, it's an online monthly subscription box that sends you 4 to 5 samples of beauty, hair, skin, and lifestyle products based on your profile questionnaire. It costs $10 a month and includes hundreds of different brands -- both well known and up-and-coming.
In the mean time, here's a look inside...
*missing Acure Organics Lip Lush - Date Worthy | Buy Online $8
All-natural, argan oil-infused gloss with sheer color and loads of shine. Swipe onto lips for a sheer wash of color.
Color Club Art Duo Pen | Buy Online $10 or $25 for 3
It's all in the details: This nifty polish puts nail perfection at your fingertips. Pull the lid for an ultraprecise pen tool or twist to reveal a slender striper brush.
Davines Replumping Superactive | Buy Online $40
This leave-in treatment fortifies strands' structure to leave them looking thick and shiny. Spritz 5 - 10 sprays onto towel dried hair, and style as desired
BONUS: Came with the Davines Replumping Shampoo + Conditioner duo to ticken and nourish strands
Sumbody Sal Scrub Bon Bon - Tuscan Orange | Buy Online $14
Buff away dead skin with this exfoliating body bar, made with real Pacific sea salt. After cleansing, gently rub over damp arms, legs, back, and chest, then rinse.
W3LL People Bio Brightener Stick | Buy Online $33
This high-performance, all natural formula adds a flattering shimmer while nourishing skin. Using fingertips or a brush blend onto areas of face you'd like to highlight.
So that's this month's box. I was super excited about the lip gloss because I love argan oil, so hopefully that comes soon.
But I'm also looking forward to trying the brightener stick. I use highlighter minimally to brighten up my eyes (check out my Highlighting 101 Guide) and would like to start using it more.
