We’re always talking about the staffers in the Birchbox office, but the ones who you interact with everyday are the ladies of our hard-working Ops team. These fabulous femmes handle all of your customer service woes. We wanted to give you a chance to get to know them even better—so here’s a peek at who’s on the other side of the phone.
We know it’s no easy feat to check each person off your holiday gift list, which is why we wanted to make gifting easier and even more awesome by amping up our gift subscriptions. This season, when you place a gift subscription order (for both men and women), you can add any of these best-selling products to your order so they arrive with the first gift box. The best part? You can add up to five of the items listed below—and they’ll all arrive with your giftee’s first shipment.
When it comes to holiday parties, we love getting dressed up, but we usually want to wear something different and exciting to each special occasion. That can be a bit straining on our wallets so if you’re like us, Rent the Runway is your jam. We’re obsessed with the site, which lets you rent designer dresses for either four or eight days at a fraction of the retail price. What’s more, they give you a free backup size, you can also rent accessories, and returning is a breeze (just pop your items in the mail using the pre-paid padded envelope that’s provided). And here’s another reason to browse the site right now: You can take $50 off your next rental of $125 or more by using the code BRCHBX50 at checkout.* (Definitely don’t wait to use this deal, it expires on February 28th, 2013.)
To get you inspired for your next festive fete, here are two ultraglam looks with corresponding beauty recommendations:
Leave it to a social media community manager to create a custom hashtag for her vacation! Our Rachel S. is en route to Mexico to attend her friends’ wedding in Puerta Vallarta. Before she left we took a peak into her toiletries and makeup bags. Here are a few of her favorite products that she brought along:
1. Supergoop: Well, duh. Sun protection is my numero uno concern!
2. Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal: I’m addicted to this concealer. It’s perfect for hiding under-eye circles (which I hope to get rid of on this trip with a the serious dose of relaxation) and any unexpected blemishes.
Sneak Peek: Birchbox December 2012
December 2012’s Birchbox theme is “All Wrapped Up.” In the spirit of the season, we’ve designed a Birchbox that looks even more like a present than usual! It’s packed full of products that we’d love to give and get this month. From a customer favorite fragrance by Juicy Couture to a non-sticky lipgloss by ModelCo (with a mirror right on the tube!), these are just a few of the samples we’re sending out in December.

It’s a bit of a curse: I have lashes so short, sparse, and close-to-invisible that you practically need to view them through the Hubble telescope. You might think I would choose to forsake mascara as a result, but that would be giving up without really trying. Instead, I’ve tested tons of mascaras over the years—from Maybelline’s Great Lash to Clinique’s Lash Doubling Mascara—yet none of them have quite lived up to my (admittedly sky high) expectations.
After searching high and low for a formula that will magically lengthen my poor little lashes without clumping, I’ve finally found the one: ModelCo’s Fibre Lashxtend Lengthening Mascara. The best part about this awesome lash-saving formula? Some of you will be receiving it in your Birchboxes this month!
