Beauty Army - December 2012

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
I didn't see a December thread yet, here's my selection that I'll receive in my December Beauty Army box:

1000

 

I'm excited for all of it, really. Especially the Green Beret and Macadamia Hair Masque. I look forward to seeing the other two colors in the Whip Hand Army collection.

post #3 of 82

First time I haven't skipped in probably 6 months! Even though my items aren't anything mindblowingly exciting, the lip glosses will be a fun gift for my sister (stuffing a stocking for her for Christmas) and I'm interested in the rest. :)

 

 

700

I have been a" member"(by member I mean I have got a log in and been offered samples but never made a selection or put in a card number so I have never skipped) of Beauty Army. After getting another email from them I decided to give it a look about a week ago. So I saw the awesome products people were getting like the Shea Terra, You Da Balm lip balm, LashEm, etc. But I could never get even one of those to show up. Even after following  what the some people on here had posted  what to put my profile. I did it again today and I am still getting the same products.

 

Anyway. my question is when do they begin putting new products up and do you get better products the longer you are a member. Thanks for yall's help since I am new to the BA thing!

I have skipped probably 5months already and they suspended my account because I skipped a lot. I used to like it at first because of the wide range of selections the first 4-5months of my sub.

 

New subscriptions and samples released everyday at 9 am PST. Try to start reshuffling your profile minutes before 9AM, maybe you'll find luck :)

Thanks for the advice. Do they restock on the weekend? I am a speical education teacher so I cannot do it during the week! I'll try it tomorrow morning!

post #7 of 82

Skipped again.. my sample selection was very similar to the last couple months with the exception of different colors and scents.  I would have like to try the "not your mother's" hairspray, but I couldn't justify spending $12 for it, the pigment and a tea bag (I love tea)- the only things I was interested in, remotely.  At least Birchbox gave a 3 pack when they offered tea..plain.gif  If I wasn't able to skip boxes, this would be the box i would let go.

As a previous poster stated, they "restock" around 9am. I think it's pretty random as far as what days they actually restock. Say, maybe they get a shipment on a Tuesday, they should upload the new items Wednesday at 9am. But there doesn't seem to be a specific schedule. Just need to check around 9 every day of your selection. It seems like whenever I pick my samples, I get an email the next day saying there are new products to choose :P

I'm on the East Coast too and I'm always able to start picking my samples at 11:45am. It seems like they release a limited supply of a product each morning and supposedly they "re-stock" every night so that everything is available the next morning.

I think beauty army is my favorite sub even though I'm not subbed lol. Its easy to cancel, so I just order a kit when I see things I want then cancel right after. I don't see anything I want yet this month.

post #11 of 82

Wow....I think "You Sold the World" got a great kit - def worth the $12.  I love that Macadamia Hair oil!

I'm really excited about that oil! It was the only thing that popped up over the last few months I was really interested in so I was excited it was still around...also excited about the eyeshadow and lipbalm :)

 

Glosses both look pretty but I have too many so they'll be great gifts, and I always love BBW shower gels. :)

post #13 of 82

Just curious, are there any shea terra items still available? I really really want the shampoo since even the full size is out of stock on Shea Terra's website. Can't wait to try the red lip gloss :D but a shea terra sample in my box will make my day.

None would come up for me, but I only tried one day.

post #15 of 82

I've skipped the previous two months because despite re-doing my profile for several days in a row, my options either didn't change at all or only changed by one item - both months.  I hope I won't have to skip this month, too.  And yep, I always login early but the items never change. Any tricks?  What am I missing?

 

I don't like including Bath & Body Works items (which always show on my selection items) because I don't see them as high end or even really quality. Blah.

Agreed. It saddens me to hit skip but by day 5, same items? Blah.

It's one of the best hair oils I've ever used and I love the smell.

Is anyone choosing this month? It doesn't seem like it. I skipped...there were not enough things I wanted. Hopefully in january they will have some great new products. I'm hoping for Shea Terra....

I did, but only because I've skipped the last 4 or 5 months, and there were enough things that had been on there a while to make it worth it for me, lol...

post #20 of 82

I had ordered a kit in November, then got nervous and cancelled my account before the box came. But I loved my kit so much (the Pink Tulip lipstick is the best!) that I decided to resubscribe. For December I got the Macadamia hair masque (which I really wanted); BBW Japanese Cherry Blossom shower gel (also really wanted); Argan non-foaming shampoo (interested to try); Great Gatsby shampoo; Espri sample; and Fiafini cleansing emulsion sample. I must say I am loving everything in my November box, and the personalization is great. I really am a minimal makeup girl and Lipsi powder and Pink Tulip lipstick are perfect for me. I love that BA is personalized right down to favorite perfume notes and manicure styles. I was a little upset to get packet samples for skin care, but I got a lot out of the little foil packs. So maybe BA really is the sub for me. 

post #21 of 82

I thought about skipping, but I decided to go ahead and choose:

 

 

I'm going through this weird hair phase (that is, the phase is weird, not my hair), so I thought I would give Dirt a try to see what it does even though I despise pretty much all styling products.  Because of the hair phase, I went for two shampoos even though my hair is perfectly happy with Suave/White Rain/V05/whatever I can get on sale for under a buck a bottle (it actually kind of rebels when I use fancy shampoo), and then WINTER IS COMING, and I work in a large office building that sucks all moisture out of my body, plus there's the fact that I will need to start wearing stocking caps in the morning, so my hair will be happy to get a little extra conditioning, so hello hair oil even though I already have four or five of them already that I've barely used (my justification:  Before a couple of months ago, my hair was in a pixie cut for about fifteen years, so *of course* I barely used any, and now it's coming up on chin length and growing like crazy, so I will naturally need more oil since I will be using it more often, and I will need more of it at a time).  And then, of course, I'm collecting the loose pigments, and I love lipstick/gloss, so I had to snag those.

I ended up skipping also. I skipped last month hoping that my selections would be better this month. There were a few things I kinda/sorta wanted to try, but the samples all seemed so small (most of them packets), that I just couldn't bring myself to pick. I have an Avon lady, so I have access to to mark products if I ever so desire to get some. I don't care much for B&BW. And I'm probably the only one here, but I don't really do loose eyeshadow. I was actually hoping that if I waited until much later in the day that I could maybe pull off some duplicate items that I had received in past boxes since that seemed to happen when I was looking last month. Sadly, that didn't happen this time. Just more foil packets and tea bags.
post #23 of 82

I was thinking of skipping because it's December and I've been spending like crazy and with IMATS next month wanted to save money for that.... Well I ended up ordering my kit. :D I can't stay away from Beauty Army. LOL

 

1000

  1. BATH & BODY WORKS Paris Amour Shower Gel
  2. NOT YOUR MOTHER'S She's A Tease Volumizing Hairspray
  3. DERMISA Skin Fade Cream
  4. MACADAMIA NATURAL OIL Deep Repair Masque
  5. WHIP HAND COSMETICS Green Beret Loose Pigment Eyeshadow
  6. MARK COSMETICS Hook Up Lip Gloss (Blow Kisses)

 

In other news I LOST my Whip Hand pigment shadow from last month. NO recollection where I put it at.

post #24 of 82

I just skipped because for days, no matter what I put on my profile, three of my options were tea (i hate tea), one was BBW (yuck), and the rest didn't interest me at all.  Third month skipping in a row. :(

All right, I'm blaming all of MUT for me signing up for WAY too many subs.  I just joined Beauty Army.  I'm very particular and nitpicky, and going back and redoing my profile (I swear I did it over 100 times) was way too much fun!  I played around with the age (WHY does it seem that the 13-18 group was getting the best samples???) the most, that seemed to change it up.  Here's what I ended up ordering:

 

 

So excited!  I love green eyeshadow (I have hazel eyes and it makes them look more green), I just got a new haircut, so I'm happy about the hairspray and the texturizing "mud", I have been wanting some of those under-eye things since I saw Michelle Phan's "Follow Me to Work" video from Ipsy, and I used to work for mark.'s parent company, Avon, and I have loved these glosses forever! And I think it'll coordinate well with the "Hot Mess" gloss in the Dec Ipsy bag.  So yeah.  New addiction.  THANKS, GUYS. But seriously.  Thanks! I love picking my own samples!!!! Woohoo!!!

You've reminded me that with Beauty Army and Ipsy we could be getting two red lip gloss lol I am all crazy over red lip now even though I can't really pull it off.

Up until Thanksgiving, I had copper/red hair with honey highlights... it would have looked horrible! But I just dyed it super-dark, so I can wear red lips again!  I may look like a vampire with my pale skin, but I'll be a pretty vampire patches.gif  

post #28 of 82

I'm learning how to rock a red lip! I avoided them for a long time because I wore my hair red for years, but I've been coloring it darker lately so I'm excited :).
