Birchbox CEW Prestige Headliners Beauty Collection Limited Edition Box

See recent Birchbox Limited Edition Boxes.

The 2016 CEW Boxes are available. Check my Birchbox Page for details and offer codes.

You’ve banked a lot of points at Birchbox. What should you spend them on? There are thousands of great items in the store. If you’re a subscriber, you’ve probably even sampled some gems you could buy. I like to use my points to purchase more boxes.  The Limited edition boxes, in particular. The CEW boxes are usually a great purchase, because they’re high value and desired items. Birchbox usually applies a $5 discount (applied automatically) when you add both CEW boxes to your cart. You can look at the discount however you want, but I look at it as getting the Mass Appeal box for $10 instead of $15.

The discount makes it almost impossible not to get them both. There are items from both boxes I really want to try or already know and love, so it was an easy decision to get them both.

Target Beauty Box Hello Sunshine

Target releases seasonal beauty boxes. They range in price from $5 to $10. Unlike some beauty boxes, this is not a subscription. Box contents appear online once they become available, which decreases the likelihood of buyer’s remorse. Items inside a box only tend to vary in color meaning your only surprise will be in the color you get. Most items inside the box are full-sized, and it is not unusual that one item exceeds the cost of the entire box if you were to buy it separately. I like that they usually release more than one box at a time giving you a choice or the possibility to get multiples. Men are not left out either, because they sometimes get a box of their own.

When Target advertised the Hello Sunshine, I was excited to see the hair and teeth items. Other items were all bonuses. The limited edition boxes are first come, first served, which is the only drawback on the lack of subscription. You have to act quickly when the boxes come out, because it is not uncommon for them to sell out quickly. I ordered it right away, because it was only $7. It is hard not to find $7 in value. This box sold out before I even got my shipping notification. That means waiting to see what comes in everyone’s box is not an effective strategy on obtaining one. If you want to make sure you get a fall box, subscribe to Target emails and look at them when they hit your inbox. Of course, I will always alert you on the front page when they come back in stock as well. Continue reading

When Target advertised the summer boxes, there was one that immediately caught my eye.  The limited edition boxes are first come, first served, which is the only drawback on the lack of subscription.  You have to act quickly when the boxes come out, because it is not uncommon for them to sell out in a few short days.  By the time I received my box, all but the men’s box sold out.  That means waiting to see what comes in everyone’s box is not an effective strategy on obtaining one.  If you want to make sure you get a fall box, subscribe to Target emails and look them when they hit your inbox.  Of course, I will always alert you when they come back in stock as well.
