Hi all I got my box today. I was excited because it was really heavy. My only disappointment was instead of chocolate for the lifestyle extra I got soyjoy.

 

Anyway I already posted a review on my blog, link in the signature. Here is a spoiler photo.

It was .752 and the only thing that would have made it greater would have been chocolate!

Great box! I really want the texturizing spray hopefully I get it.

post #785 of 2328

I clean my tub religiously just to take baths so I am really excited for the cupcake bath bomb. I am going to run out tomorrow and pick up an OK mag or people to read while I soak.

The Cupcake bath bomb thingy
ModelCo Mascara
Oscar Blandi Deluxe size texturizing spray
Cladrea Hand Soap (2 paper packets samples)
SoyJoy Bar
The pillowy envelope for gifting
Coupon for $15 off  custom-made shoes website
Stella Cadente Miss Me Parfum spray sample
 

Overall I am happy. Prolly won't use the mascara and the bath bomb, but I love the hand soap, although I probably won't buy fancy hand soap. Excited to try the hairspray and perfume! Soyjoy is going to the boys. I am eyeing a few things from the shop, too bad most of the stuff I love have been out of stock forever! I've saved up so much points to get a few things for virtually free!


Looks like we are box twins. Funny how the lifestyle extra we are going to give away to the men lol.

It would depend on how big your PO Box is.  Mine is a smaller one, and I have to go to the counter to ask for it (they put a card in my box to let me know its been delivered).  My sister has a large box, and hers goes right into her PO Box.  It just depends if the box will fit into the PO Box or not.

That's a good box! I only hope mine is close to this

post #789 of 2328

You got a great box! I'd love to get the mascara. I always get tons of nail polish from birchbox that I don't want. Do you have a trade thread? if not I actually go to school in coppell so If you ever want to meet up and trade that would be cool with me! 

post #790 of 2328

No updates on mine yet....so I sit and wait...and hope that I get a decent one this go 'round.  :)

post #791 of 2328

I really want the lash extend! My lashes are super short and straight and been wanting to try those. Also the cupcake bath bomb sounds nice! But I don't have a tub, how sad :(

 

My birchbox was shipped already! Maybe it will be up by tomorrow on the site. Does anyone know if the monthly box pictures are posted somewhere? The ones by Zadidoll

post #794 of 2328

Ahhhhhhh!  I have no self control.  I'm "enjoying" the evening with my friggin period so I just used my Birchbox points to order those bath cupcakes and the chocolate samples.  bath.gif

post #795 of 2328

I REALLY want to order the chocolate but I already bought from birchbox this week and did not select that because I was hoping for it in my box. Does anyone know of a store that sells them?

 

And I wonder how many samples you get in the monthly box. I am so jealous of whoever gets.

post #796 of 2328

I'm excited for this month. I hope to see more spoilers soon so I can narrow down what my box contents will be!

Hoping for the cupcake. : D

post #797 of 2328

are welcome boxes different from the monthly boxes?

post #798 of 2328

Looking through the pictures, the boxes don't look too bad...so much better than last month.  And...trying not to jinx myself here (it's probably too late for that), but there are a few things in some boxes I hope to avoid...like the cranberry soyjoy bar, another twistband!, and once again...BB's house special...Color Club.

It seems like I've seen them at Whole Foods.  If they don't have that specific brand, they will definitely have similar bars (Vosges and Theo are the two brands I can recall off the top of my head)!  At the stores in my area, sometimes they're with the rest of the candy, and sometimes they're over by the cheese, of all places.

 

I went though all of the images I could find on the cloudfront site, and I noticed that every box had stila, Modelco (mascara or lipgloss), or both.  So I'm going to play pick-your-box now.  It looks like this month's standard formula is one makeup item, one body/hair item, one face/nail item, one fragrance item, and one lifestyle item, so based on those preview pictures, I would pick:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
  • Modelco lip gloss
  • the blue etoile nail polish (I will always go for a blue nail polish whenever that's an option!)
  • one love organics body serum
  • jouer roll-on perfume oil (if I have to have a fragrance, I'll always pick the oil because I can't wear alcohol-based stuff)
  • chuao chocolate 

 

And this pretty much guarantees I will never get any of these things!

post #800 of 2328

I'm so flippin' happy. This month's box is way better than last month! and it arrived way earlier than expected.

My sisters box shipped on the 6th, she didnt get it yet but no shipping for me pissoff.gif. I really honestly just would be happy with the bath bomb, mascara, stilla, or mox. I've always loved all my boxes so hopefully my luck will continue... unlike my sister who enjoys calling her birchboxes her bitchboxes because of how terrible they are!

[*] Lulu Organics Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder - totally wanted to try
[*] ModelCo FIBRE LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara - can always use
[*] Mox Botanicals Pomegranate & Fig Lip Butter - can always use
[*] One Love Organics Aromatic Body Serum - totally wanted to try
[*] John Varvatos Artisan - meh


That's a great box ( they all look pretty great this month )
What scent was the body serum?
post #803 of 2328

Totally forgot I ordered Boiing concealer! I had to it was only $1.40 with my points! Hopefully my box and my order will ship tomorrow or monday and will come on the same day! Hollah it'll be like Christmas!

 400

That is quite an impressive lot of Lush products - the next time you move, remember to tell the real estate agent that a 'big tub' is a must!

I don’t believe we have those here, but thanks for the suggestion. My box weighed 0.5247. I hope you get the same box or at least another one you love. If not, I have a feeling some/most of my box will end up on my trade list. I got a mascara from Ipsy (I hate that name!) last month with a 50/50 chance of getting another one this month. That's a lot of mascara to use up before they dry out, so we'll see.

Also, because I hated the packaging, I dumped the packet into a sifter jar so it stays clean and dry.

That's good to hear, I've been dying to find one that works for me. So's my mother, so I told her I'd divide it between two coastal scents sifter jars I bought and give her one.

I've looked everywhere, in stores and online and have had horrible luck so far. Hopefully this month will be my chance since Birchbox carries everything they send out that month.

Grocery 13

CIBO Express

Whole Foods

Crate & Barrel

Target

Wegmans

Fresh Market

 

Are all in the Philly area and all carry them. Maybe not every location does, but the store locator on the chuao site brought up multiple locations.

I got my box a whole 3 days earlier than projected. Amazing- they've stepped it up apparently.



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I got the Jouer fragrance cornucopia (notes of gardenia,jasmine, and honeysuckle- quite possibly my favorite scent of anything bb has given me), the lulu organics dry shampoo, the modelco lip gloss, the sumita eye liner (the cap was on and totally fine luckily) and the soyjoy (given to the mister). However, totally thrilled that I got TWO FULL SIZED MAKEUP items, totally surprised. Maybe they're responding to the competition they've got from ipsy/myglam? Pic's  a bit blurry, sorry.
