Birchbox November 2012 - Page 37

post #1081 of 2328

I am really happy BB placed the body serum in a little ziploc baggie, because it definitely leaked all over the inside of the baggie. However, since it was closed, it didn't get all over anything else. Yayyy! Also, I don't know if everyone getting box 9 will have the same fragrances, but mine was Chamomile. The Mox was the pom/fig, but I haven't seen anyone get a different flavor. I'm assuming the pom/fig will be the selected flavor for everyone who receives this, since it is exclusive to BB.

I got box 3 and 9 waiting on them but checked my site.  I think I will be closing one account it has been disapointing and not really worth it.

Would someone who gets a bath bomb mind comparing it to a Lush bath bomb that they've tried? Debating whether or not to get the one in the Birchbox store, or wait until my next trip to Lush to pick one up.

I couldn't help it and had to see what box I'll be getting:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 I -think- it's box 12 but can't be sure.  Getting:

-Masqueology eye mask

-Masqueology 7D moisture cream

-Masqueology Masque Cleanse

-Stila all over shimmer liquid luminizer

-One Love Organics body serum

-MCMC Fragrance Phoenix Eau de Parfum.

My shipping info updated though I haven't gotten an email yet, and my box weighs .7450, which is heavier than any other box, yet the picture of my box shows a bunch of packets/single use items, so a bit confusing.  Either there's a TON of packets in there, the picture's misleading, or they're being generous and giving me a ton of tissue paper this month.

That's strange. Your box weight is actually close to mine, which is 0.7489, and I'm getting box 5 since both the Oscar Blandi and cupcake are probably on the heavier side.

They stick to wet mascara :) So it's best to do one eye at a time to make sure your mascara doesn't dry out. Apply 1 layer of mascara, dab some fibers on, apply another layer of mascara.

where can i see a list of the boxes with pictures?

post #1088 of 2328

If anyone sees a 20% code (20foryou or something), can you let me know?  I have some things I really want to buy but don't really want to pay full price for, and I know I don't have an anniversary code coming my way.  icon_biggrin.gif

I have the exact same box, and my box only weighs .4something, Odd.

GAH! So my account has switched over to November but still no tracking number for me icon_sad.gif I'm glad BB has really really seemed to step it up this month, except for the mens cologne, broken eyeliners and spilled body oils.

By the list and spoilers Zadi put out, it looks like box 2? The masquelogy items are only in a few boxes..
post #1093 of 2328

Sifter jars:  I get all of my stuff like this from Pilot Vials or Sunburst Bottle, depending on exactly what and how many I'm looking for!  It can take a little digging around (sifters are with the jars on the PV site, but they're under Accessories > Funnels and Fitments on the SB site, for example), and they don't both have *exactly* the same things, but there are a lot of containers on here that would address quite a few issues we have with samples, like mini atomizers (at PV but not SB) for all of those perfume samples that aren't in sprayers.  I advise against all plastic bottles except the Natural Plastic bottles on the SB site for lotion, by the way.  The pretty colored and clear bottles just aren't as flexible, so they're harder to squeeze and get the last bit of lotion out.

Really? I just saw this on the site literally a few minutes ago. Maybe they ran out?

Enter the code 'baggu2baggu' on any product order $60+ at checkout to receive your 2 BAGGU® bags. Available only while supplies last.

I'm getting this box too (box 2) and my weight is .615 - that IS odd, lol. 

post #1096 of 2328

post #1097 of 2328

Did anyone else with a cupcake get their boxes yet? ): What condition was your cupcake in?

 

mine came crushed. It's still mostly in one piece and usable but not exactly giftable, which is what I had been planning on doing with it... I just feel bad asking for another one when it's in fact usable... just not regiftable. :\ I guess I'm just trying to see what other people's cupcakes are like and if this was just an anomaly

 i would definitely complain so  they should package them better.

post #1099 of 2328

I have 2 subscriptions and both are still showing the October box.   I'm starting to get a little mad, since it seems that a lot of people already have thier boxes and I can't even see what I'm getting.  I understand that some boxes are shipping late due to the big storm, and I'm ok with that.  I just want my boxes to update on the Birchbox website.  I'm beginning to wonder if they forgot me!

My cupcake was in perfect condition. Looked good enough to eat.

 

HOWEVER I took a bath dropped it in when it was 2/3 full and nothing happened. No bubbles, color water change, no different scent in the air, no skin softer than usual. It dissolved into absolutely nothing. What a dud and I am so glad I did not add this to my shopping cart when the holiday store opened up.

*mourns the poor cupcake*

 

I just feel bad contacting CS so much because I was sent the wrong in last month's box too, and they sent a replacement...which then got lost so they had to give me credit. @_@ Now this. I don't want to be a whiner, but having to contact them about these things is also an inconvenience to me... *sigh*

i've seen a couple on blogs that were fine.  I'm sure that they would be willing to send you another one, especially since they are encouraging giving this month!

): *sigh* I hope so or else I'm going to have to photograph this and put it on my blog. I was super excited to get my box because I thought I could write about it, but now I have to wait for the new one to be sent to me... unless if they want me to put this bloody cupcake up lol.

 

This cupcake still makes me so sad... Y_Y

I have some birchbox points I want to use. I wanted to get some hair products and haven't had that many hair samples I've liked (except Miss Jessie's quick curls, which I'm getting). I have fine curly dry hair. I was looking at the orofluido.....but then I saw sedu and the amika one and am now terribly indecisive. (I loved Kerastase elixir, but even with points I cannot bring myself to pay the $54). Any help would be HUGELY appreciated!

Are you looking for an oil or styling cream/gel? I'm thinking I want to try the new stuff coming in boxes this month, but I didn't receive any frown.gif Although, it's pretty reasonable in the store, so I may just buy one.

I haven't got my box yet, but I am getting curly hair rules curl keeper (which is even have decent I will buy, because it is fairly cheap). I'm looking at oils, but I am a sucker for hair products--anything...i keep thinking there is some product that will magically transform my curls into anna lynne mccord's AMAZING curls

I've made cupcake bath bombs at home...they're REALLY cute and fairly easy if you can source your materials (I use Brambleberry but there are other places and even Michael's carries soap making stuff.)  

 

Here's the tutorial that I used. They turned out so cute!  <3

this month, which is even half way decent I will likely get too, because it is fairly cheap. I have 500 points and a 20% off coupon...which is great (but bad, because I will buy more)

I have naturally curly hair, relaxed two+ years ago and curling like crazy again..I have never found one HG product. I did start the no poo method and feel like my hair is better and softer. I usually use a serum/oil on wet hair(mostly the ends and back of my hair, then a quick gloss over when dry), then mix any curl/thickening cream with a cream gel and distribute through my hair. Can't speak for the Orofluido, haven't tried it yet..but happy to share I'm getting some soon!

Sorry.. guess I'm not so helpful lol. I did like the Miss Jessie's, but one or two of their products smelled funny.
