A new Limited Edition Box Birchbox, the Luxe Beauty Box is available today. Limited Edition Boxes are my favorite items to purchase from Birchbox. These are a mixture of full and sample sized items that usually fit a specific box theme. All boxes have a value far greater than the cost so they are a great deal when the items you want to keep exceed the value of what you’re paying. Better boxes sell out quickly, but the ones that linger will occasionally pop up in the sale section for 30% off. Aces sometimes get 40% off on sale items. Predicting which ones will sell out is not always easy, so I buy the ones I really want close to the release date. If you’re on the fence because of price, wait it out.
It was back in stock on 08-16-18 but gone again on 08-20-18.
When I started writing this article yesterday, the Travel-Ready Treasures box was still in stock. The article was mostly written, so I decided to publish it anyway. It seems like the boxes are running out of inventory faster than usual. That or the last two boxes I received were in high demand. This is another one I originally was not going to purchase. There are a lot of deluxe items in this, and I have more samples than I can use in a lifetime. I ultimately decided to grab it, because I think the bag is cute and saw enough value in some of the pieces I did not already own. Over a week after the box allegedly shipped, it was still saying USPS Currently Awaiting Package. Thankfully, I contacted Birchbox to see what happened, because almost three weeks later USPS is still “awaiting” the original package. Birchbox did send me a replacement, and that is the one I am reviewing now. Who knows, if USPS ever finds my lost package, Birchbox may have one more brand new kit to sell.
I know my last article was also a Birchbox limited edition box, and I was planning on putting up some different articles before posting this one. Then, I saw an ad for a discount on limited edition boxes on Facebook. That thwarted my plan to post this later, because I want the review to go up before the boxes possibly sell out. This is also my chance to tell those who’ve been waiting for a discount on these boxes that 30% off is the best I’ve seen in a while. That is a better discount than I received on the box. Of course, Aces could wait to see if this pops up in the 40% category later. It might, but this is arguably the best of all the available Women’s boxes. Birchbox priced it the highest so it looks like they agree. Yes, I purchased all of them, because I have a hard time passing up these limited edition boxes. See reviews for A Toast to the Host, Meet the Latest and Greatest, and Sweet Beauty Treats. I really did enjoy all four of them and have no regrets on purchasing any of them.
Birchbox puts out a lot of high-quality Discovery Kits. These are smaller versions of the Limited Edition Boxes and typically come in a clear TSA approved travel bag. A discovery kit is a themed bag with multiple brands curated by Birchbox. Some discovery kits, particularly the ones with all samples, are not worth purchasing. Of course, I usually buy them for hard to get items I really want to try or already love. As long as the value of the items I am keeping exceeds the amount I am paying, I will usually purchase the kit. Others are more than worth it.
