I finally got the email saying my box #3 has shipped! Yay!

post #1532 of 2328

Still no update and no tracking and no email for me either! argghhh!! I emailed them on the 10th and have not gotten a reply back either. 

post #1533 of 2328

I am receiving box #30. My shipping information has not updated yet either. I have also not received the email. The picture finally loaded, so that's a good sign. I am sure they are still working on getting them shipped out. The email from earlier in the month stated that some boxes would be shipping as late as the 15th! So I am not worried yet..just anxious :)

Still no shipping email.....still no tracking updates in my account....its like they're teasing me at this point- "Hey, here's what you're going to get....but we're going to make you wait a while to get it.  Sorries!"  icon_neutral.gif

But I did get my "other holiday I should be celebrating" email with my discount for being a subscriber for nine months.  So I got that going for me....which is nice.

Does anyone know if you can use the 20% code for gift subscriptions? December will be my 6th month and I'm considering getting my sister a gift sub. I'm trying to decide between the 3 and 6 month and if the 20% off works on the gift subs I'll def go with the 6 month!

I got the Neroli scent (blossom of the bitter orange tree). I am so thrilled b/c I LOVE citrus scents. I was worried I'd get the lavender - which I am not a huge fan of. I feel like BB hit it out of the park with my box this month between the One Love Neroli and the MCMC Phoenix scent (which also contains neroli).

LOL....I totally wrote that in my blog post early today.  It does have a powdery smell.  I didn't care for it at all but I thought the packaging was super cute :o)

 

It is a VERY strong powdery scent.  It is also a "scrubber" meaning that it is very long lasting.  You can scrub that stuff off with soap and water, and a bit of the scent will remain.  It is too powdery for my taste, but the packaging was great.  I also like that it wasn't a fruity-floral.  I'm willing to try new stuff, but OMG, if I see another celebrity fruity-floral I might scream.

Box 3 finally on its way! At least I get my Ipsy today in the mail to hold me over. 

post #1540 of 2328

I ended up getting my Love With Food Box and my Ipsy bag last night. 

 

(This months Love With Food was AWESOME btw!  If anyone is looking for a different kinda sub box - this one rocks!  They donate a meal to a child with every purchase!)


I got my first love with food box yesterday and I love it!  And it says for November and December instead of 1 meal they'll be donating 2 meals!!!!  So great

I know!! rocknroll2.gif I wish that they would do it randomly t/o the year too.  If you make a purchase on their website - they also use that to help donate.  I totally got two things from my box this month.  Last month I ended up getting more honey straws.

yea I have a mini dry shampoo, so I know they sell little minis, I'll stop by ulta and see what they have.

post #1547 of 2328

I would love to know what i'm getting.. but of course my box still shows OCTOBER. Birchbox is on its last straw with me!

post #1548 of 2328

I got the Caldera hand soap samples from BB and from their website - the samples are great because you can get a few uses out of them. Nice soap - but I get a better deal over at Bath and Body Works.  (It's scary how many soaps I have under all of my bathroom cabinets.)

post #1549 of 2328

Box 3 for me too.  Is there an unusually large number of box 3s, or is it just me?  I just got my shipping notification e-mail today. 

post #1550 of 2328

I got my 6 month anniversary code! I think I'll grab the OLO Aromatic Body Serum! I'm seriously in love with that stuff.

It seems like that doesn't it?  

 

I'm sure by tomorrow night a lot more people will have their shipping notices.  They did say 50% of boxes will be shipped out late (the 15th or 17th I think)

O.T. but not really: I know other places are late with mailings- I got my Comcast bill late (Got it last night in the mail - says it was due on the 7th of Nov...now they have nasty CS reps ick...ok that was OT)

post #1552 of 2328

I'm curious about what the hype is...does it just smell good or is it just awesome on the skin?

post #1553 of 2328

I received my 6 mo anniversary code today, but my box page is still showing my Oct. box... no shipping info. NADA. headache.gif

post #1554 of 2328

Any consensus on which box numbers haven't shipped yet?
 

post #1555 of 2328

hi there! im new to this group!! been getting BB for about a year now. how do you girls know what number your box is? i did log in on the 10th cause i had forgotten to review last months yet and saw my spoilers. i JUST got sent me shipment email today :( sad but hopefully it will get here soon. ive noticed all the people i refer get thiers before mine. and the newer referrals get thiers before the older referrals. think they ship to new members first? i get mine later and later evey month.

post #1556 of 2328

Yeah, box arrived today.  I got the box they said I was.  I'm even LESS pleased now that I got it.

 

The Masqueology 7D Moisture Cream and the Revitalizing Eye Gel are both single use packets, and this time they only sent ONE.  The moisturizer feels like there's almost nothing in it.

 

I was also supposed to get the cleanser, but it is not in my box.  I'll be emailing soon.

 

Perfume is the usual perfume vial.  No idea how it smells since I've got sinus problems and no sense of smell right now.

 

The body serum's a decent size at least, as is the Smashbox luminizer.  I can't use the luminizer though. :(  It'll go up for trade shortly.

post #1557 of 2328

Needless to say this box is as bad as August's, when I got those tanning packets and nothing of any value.

post #1558 of 2328

I got my box today! :)

It was #4

The OLO serum was in rose and it smells amazing, but it was spilled in the baggy. Did anyone else email them about this?

The ModelCo gloss will not be used at all since I already have one from IPSY and since my lips are pigmented you can't tell that I'm wearing it.

Either way I was happy with the Oscar Blandi, :)

Oh and the JohnVarvatos scent smells really good!

A very small amount spilled into the bag mine came in but you couldn't tell there was any missing from the spray tube. I didn't email them about it. If you're missing a lot then you should contact CS. I think that a little bit of the serum spilling out was expected though which is why it came in the bag.

Mine spilled a lot, so I think I'll email them about it. :)
