Bummed, I thought my box would be here today but it's not and I have no activity :(  I'm getting Box 25 and 20... I think... Did anyone else notice that they changed the url's for the boxes? It's not as easy for me to figure out what number mine is!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 
1.theBalm® cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer
 
2.amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask - 500 ml
 
3.Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod
 
4.Aerie Shimmer 1.7oz Fragrance
 
5.Lashem Measurable Difference Lash Gel Serum

 

Im not to thrilled about this months contents,the only thing im looking forward to is the Mary-Lou Manizer and that's about it.No wonder my box weighed so little(0.3930) everything is small especially the Lashem !Thats about the size of my pinky:/

I got Box 21 and I AM VERY UNHAPPY. Beauty Army and Birchbox are soooo disappointing this month.

I just logged into my Birchbox account and it shows 4 items. Can I freak yet? Is it possible they haven't finished with all the box pictures /products listed?

I thought we were supposed to get a lipgloss as our December Birchbox exclusive sample, but my box doesn't look like it includes it. Has anyone gotten this?

I'll definitely be stopping by there soon either way because everyone's varieties sound delish!

Lol, you'll need to stop by. They recently revamped UTC Mall! I believe you're right about how they're local to this area.. the owner used to attend UCSD :D

 

I'm close by (a block away actually), but I prefer Godiva and their chocolate of month samples :D

I actually ended up accidentally with three Mary Lou's like that.  I wrote them about the fingerprint and they sent me another one, only that one took way too long to get to me so I wrote to tell them I hadn't received it.  They sent me another one, and just after they had I got the original one a couple days later.  Three fingerprinty Mary Lou's, and I guess I've got a fingerprinty Hot Mama coming now.  My cheeks are set for a while.

Getting box 7 kind of neutral . I need to check my profile though I have Very thick hair but keep receiving volumizing stuff!!! Anyone interested in the nick chavez shampoo would trade for a juice cc cream or mox lip balm !!
post #1482 of 2321

Well, they updated my account to show me what I am getting in December during the night, but my tracking number still hasn't updated.  I'm getting box #29- no boob tape!  Although I'm not overly excited, I know I'll use everything in the box....except for the perfume and that's not their fault.  I had actually gotten the same Cartier samples from Neiman Marcus last week.  

 

Well, since I am getting out of town tomorrow to visit the fam on Long Island, the box will be waiting for me when I get home!

I finally got a box update. I'm getting box 16 & I'm pleased. I'm glad that I lowered my age to 15, lol. Now I'm waiting for info on my second account that I just opened last week.
post #1484 of 2321

finally an update on my box.. getting box 16. Not excited about another lipgloss this month. I hope the CC cream and the Shampoo are good samples. Anyone know if the shampoo is sulfate free??

I would've liked that box. That's my ideal one.
post #1486 of 2321
My account finally updated!
Weight is .5750 btw!
I am getting box 7! Pretty happy that I got both the hot mama and the frownies which were 2 of the things I really wanted to try !

Can't figure out spoilers on my iPad sorry :/
post #1487 of 2321
My box updated as well! I'm getting box #1 and I'm pretty happy with it. I did need a few of the items but I will be lowering my age on my profile. I also can't believe how fast I got my shipping email, the past few months it has been much later in the month.
post #1488 of 2321

@beautynewbie I'm getting that same box!  Mine finally updated....I like the box.....I wanted to try the cc cream though maybe next month haha!

post #1489 of 2321
Me too! I love my Dr. Jart but I have heard so many rave reviews of that one that I want to try it myself!

I had noticed that you were especially unhappy with your last few boxes, so I'm also relieved you lucked out this month (ha)!

Yeah this month was a make it or break it month for me. It's sad that I have to lie about everything on my profile to get what I want, smh.

I opened up a second account with my real information and concerns about skin care, hair, my real age and income so I'll see how that goes. I'll give it at least three months so I can get the three month code and at least 100 points.
post #1492 of 2321
I promised myself I wouldn't look.....I have no self control lol. I'm getting box 21 & 29 and I'm pretty excited! I really wanted the lip gloss or the fresh perfume so if anyone doesn't want those items I would happily trade the shampoo and/or conditioner from my boxes for either of those. Just throwing that out there.

you can go here, and it will show you all pictures posted with the #birchbox tag: http://web.stagram.com/tag/birchbox/

 

This is where I see all different shades of the gloss in the boxes this month :)

I am starting not to like Birchbox each month I am disappointed because my box is not what I always think it will be. I prefer Ipsy over Birchbox now Ipsy seems like it focuses on beauty samples more then BirchBox.

My curiosity got the best of me. I peeked and I'm getting box one!!!

I'm really excited because I really wanted the Hot Mama. The only thing that would make this better is finding someone willing to trade me their Juice CC cream!!!

It's funny how different we all are! I am quitting Ipsy after this month because although I like it, I am maxing out on samples and Ipsy sends mostly items I could/would get myself anyway. They are very nice and large too, but Birchbox sends me things I sometimes would never have heard of or tried. Some boxes are better than others but I like the discovery factor (and the points system!) well enough to choose Birchbox as the one I am going to keep.

Again, I do like Ipsy, but overall I need to choose one and I like the Birchbox experience, even if I do get an occasional dud.

Well said!  I love Birchbox!  I got the Liqwd volumizing spray a couple months ago.....something I would never pay that much for if I didn't know it worked and its amazing!  I have since bought 2 bottles of it.  I love that Birchbox introduced me to it!  Birchbox is only 10$ a month and always at the very least has that value so I am thrilled :)

I love both Birchbox and Ipsy. Ipsy definitely sends good make up products that I like trying, but Birchbox has definitely sent me samples that I continue to use everyday. They introduced me to the DDF Brightening Cleanser, which I love and use every other day and Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, which has definitely gotten rid of the redness my face used to have. I would have never heard of these products without Birchbox.

I would definately have a hard time choosing if I had to between Ipsy and Birchbox.  I love Ipsy for the makeup and Birchbox for the variety of different products :)  Thank gosh I don't have to choose!

Sorry, I tried to read back through and look but I stayed away from this thread til boxes were up and I can't catch up on 50 pages, lol.

 

I'm getting box 29.  Anyone know how big the Hot Mama sample is?  It looks potentially full-sized in the pic but I don't want to get my hopes up, those pics lie sometimes, haha.
