We know that you’re a sample connoisseur (it takes one to know one, after all)—and in the Mystery Sample Bag, we’re bringing you top-shelf samples plus a place to store your product stash, free with any purchase of $75+ in the Shop. This exclusive kit contains three samples of products we’re absolutely wild about right this minute, bundled in a stylish makeup bag. The truly awesome part: The products’ identities will remain secret until you receive your order.
This bag should come automatically on orders over $75.00 as those of us in the " we spend a lot of money with Birchbox" should get the bonus not have to waste a promo code.2
Nothing to be excited about here: itty bitty sample of Suki exfoliate foaming cleanser, a tiny coastal scents eyeshadow sampler that I already had, and Gilchrist & Soames shower gel, which I'm sure I already had from a hotel. Maybe it's worth like $3, but I am bummed I had to use a promo code which could have been used for something of higher value or a discount. It's true, this was free, but they should not have hyped this up and said these are things they are "absolutely wild about right this minute." That cannot possibly be true.2
I'm a little disappointed with my Ace Bag, but maybe I just had my hopes too high. There were 3 samples (eye shadow, face scrub and body wash), 2 of which I have already received in my monthly box. I wouldn't really consider any of them to be a deluxe sample. Its also discouraging that we have to use a promo code to obtain an Ace perk.3
This seems basically be a bigger version of the mystery samples add on, except that you have to use a code to get it. Like many of the reviewers, I received the Costal Scents palette in ballerina, the Suki exfoliant foaming cleanser, and the Gilchrist and Soames stimulating sea wrack body wash. While the bag is cute and comes in a useful size, it really wasn't worth using a code for. Also, I've already received the costal scents eye shadow twice, in a birch box and as a mystery sample. The cleanser was teeny tiny and while the body wash was a nice size, it's not too exciting.
I agree with the other reviewers who have suggested that there be no code associated with this. After all, you are spending $75 in order to get what appears to be leftover samples from monthly boxes (just like the mystery samples).
The makeup case itself is really cute and a good size, but I was disappointed with the samples. They were small and all things that I have received before...Not sure if this is worth using up a promo code unless youre looking for a new smaller makeup case.2
As a Birchbox Ace I think this should be an automatic free perk for those meet the $75 or more requirement. Aces spend a lot of money to become Aces, throwing us a free bag with samples would be a nice touch. Using a code for the bag is a major turn off.
*Note I have not used the code to receive the bag/samples.*
The items in the bag are a Suki exfoliator, a mini coastal scents palette in "Ballerina", and a Gilchrist and Soames body wash. I got it three times in a row and it's not worth using a promo code over. Mix it up birchbox.3
The bag is seriously cute, and perfect to toss in your bag on the go. I was able to fit all of my "must have" products in here, brushes included. I like how there are little elastic holders for brushes, eyeliner, tweezers, etc.
The suki exfoliating face wash, gilchrist & soames body wash, and the eyeshadow palette were the samples I got. I seems like every Ace Bag has these 3 samples, which is a bummer.
I would be more likely to get another Ace Bag in the future if the samples were different each time. I also do wish the eyeliner came in a sturdier package, it feels like it could break apart any second.
If I use this code again, it will probably be to gift the Ace Bag to a friend. I do think it's a great gift option for those who already got it or who just wouldn't use it themselves.
Like most other reviewers, my samples were the Suki exfoliate foaming cleanser, the coastal scents eye shadow, and Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy body wash. The Suki cleanser is great, but the other items were a yawn---I find it difficult to believe that Birchbox staff are "absolutely wild" about these products! Still, I was reasonably pleased with the cute makeup bag, especially the elastic straps to hold lipstick, etc., in place----until the zipper on the bag broke the third time I opened it!! All in all, really REALLY disappointing, Birchbox! I agree with other reviewers who felt that this should not require a code---it should be offered as a somewhat nicer Mystery Pack for people spending $75 or more. I definitely would not sacrifice a code for this item again.2
I love the bag- perfect for traveling but i'm not crazy about the samples, just a face scrub and a body wash. not impressed, choose another bonus shop item!3
