That sucks! I didn't even realize it was outside the US. It would be nice if they let you pay via Paypal or something as a work-around to that issue.


My bank is so sneaky I can't even use paypal as a work around because it draws from the same account. Believe me, I've tried with other sites. I thought about getting one of those pre-paid credit cards, but I don't know if that would work.

Jessi, i'm on my phone but if they have an option for gift boxes you can Paypal me the $20 and i'll buy the box (and maybe by August you'll be able to work something new out).

ETA: they do have a gift option but it's $30! I'll ask Melisser about it.

This is reeeeally tempting. Pre-vegan I was a beauty product hoarder, and that's been suppressed for a few years because I'm too lazy to research that much and also am shopping at Sephora instead of CVS these days ($$$). I'd convinced myself that birchbox probably wasn't all that great anyway, but I was totally jealous.

My best friend gets a Birchbox every month and it is pretty great. I've always been jealous. Honestly though the best thing about Birchbox is their points system, where you get points for reviewing products in your box and the points add up to $$ for you to spend in their store. It's the kind of the ideal sample box system, from the consumer end. Obviously I'd rather get a box full of vegan stuff I can actually use, but it is to dream!

You're so sweet! I actually spent like $60 at Ulta today when I meant to spend like $10, plus another $40 at Cosmoprof, so if I buy any more makeup/personal care stuff the other half might murder me. I'm hoping to figure out my stupid bank card issue. and then maybe I can sign up in the future.

Wow, that was fast! It sucks that you can't get the first box, but it's great that there's some much interest. Hopefully you'll be able to get in for August!

Yeah, and hopefully someone will post pictures so I can see what it's like. I'm glad there's so much interest too!

Now I have to go out and find some other fun, frivolous thing to spend $20 on. Obviously. Not like I'm going to save that money.

Yeah, and I think they even ordered more products to make more with, they sold out of most of their original stock on the first day. Part of the issue might be that they had a limited number of those 15% off codes they could give out. It sucks you missed it Amy, but if even half the interest keeps up they'll be able to keep selling them.

People are getting theirs, I saw a review already and the selection looks awesome, but the reviewer didn't because there were too many samples (did you not watch the video?) and she said she doesn't know anything about makeup. I wasn't deterred and i'm kind of annoyed that someone would review the box poorly without even trying the products when they, by their own admission, don't know what they're talking about.

Box acquired! It shipped yesterday and was waiting for me when I got home from work today. I got a mini mascara, nail polish (Deco), a mini mineral eyeshadow (can't remember the name, it's a bronzey color), a lip balm, argan oil, a rosewater face wash, a sunscreen/tinted moisturizer thing, an aromatherapy perfume oil thing, and the adorable little green pouch. It's a really awesome box and I'm super excited to try everything.

MBM, what was that reviewer expecting, a box full of full-size products? There are a few, but the whole idea of a sample box is... samples. Trying new stuff! Even if they were all samples, they're all generously-sized (no single-use foil packets), so I'm 100% satisfied.

The only thing i'm unhappy to see is the lip balm, because it was in the very last snack box. I like it, but I just got one! They could've at least put in a different flavor.

I'm jealous now and wish I had signed up.

You must not lose your lip balms mbm. (jeez, autocorrected that to "mom") I go through so many and then find them in weird places later. I just found a Burt's Bees balm under my bathroom sink last week and can't figure it out since I've been vegan before we moved here, so it has to be at least 6 yrs old.

I do lose them, but I also keep a lot in certain places like my desk drawer and my purse. I also try to not put them in my pocket.
