i like viva la juicy, the brand new one (couture la la) and la fleur but i do not like peace, love and juicy (it smells like dirt + grass) or the original scent

that's the one I go to! I *still* need to hit up that Ulta store that they made next to it. From what I know it's the only Ulta in queens/maybe even all of NYC! 

 

Couldn't resist peeking into my box. I am really happy to get the clarifying shampoo and Hot mama... I'm also getting the lash serum, lotus face cream, and skinny chic.

Box 15 for me. Super excited about the eyeliner (not sure what color it will be though)...very apathetic towards the Embryolisse cream as well as the NUXE lotion...I have so much lotion in my life! Interested in trying out the Ojon serum, and meh toward the Juicy sample (already own it in full size). All in all a very middle of the road box for me.

Getting box 22!  Weight is 0.4960 (if anyone still cares).  Yay!!  Very excited for this box.  Not usually big on makeup items, but both (yes two!!) are ones I've been wanting to try.  And I've tried the lotion before from myglam/ipsy and liked it. I don't even mind that the shampoo and conditioner are in packets.

 

Happy month for me!!!

post #1116 of 2106
Kind of offended by the name and message behind the perfume I'm getting this month. Who's with me there?

I'm not sure why they changed it, but this scent comes in the Harvey Prince sampler, only it's called eau de lite. I actually like the scent. I don't think it does anything to curb my appetitie, but I like the mix of minty and fruity.

ETA-I was wrong, I guess this is in addition to eau de lite.

.

And my box weight is .455 if anyone is wondering
post #1120 of 2106

My box contents finally updated for my main account. I'm getting box 10 which I'm not terribly upset with because i did want to try the Ojon hair oil but it looks like I'm getting another Eyeko which was in my first box. I hope its a different color (I got blue last time) because I don't wear blue eyeliner but I love liquid eyeliner.

 

I'm getting box 9 on my other account (which is only a 3 month gift sub and I've decided to not extend it) and I'm getting duplicates. This month I am getting 2 Aerie perfume samples and 2 Embryolisse samples. Plus in box 9, i'm getting another sample of Hot Mama which I got in my main account last month.

 

I like the Hot Mama so I'm glad I wont have to buy blush for awhile and the Stripper to Go packets will be nice since I'm getting nail polish in my Ipsy bag.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on the Aerie perfume? Since im getting 2 of them, I hope I like the smell.

I am getting box 18. I am in hair product hell. Think it may be time to break up with birchbox until they give me the option to not get stuff that I will absolutely not use.

Happy month for me!!!  

I'm getting box 22 also! My weight is .5140 - what the heck? I didn't have Ipsy when they sent that product, so I'm excited to try it.  And super excited that the shampoo and conditioner match!  This is also a very happy month for me... I'm excited that I'm getting makeup in my BB because there's none in the Ipsy bag!

 

Here's a list of the box contents in case anyone is like "what are these ppl talking about?:

 

Warning: Spoiler! - Box 22 Contents (Click to show)

 

-Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

-The Balm Hot Mama Blush

-Pur-lisse Moisturizer

-Harvey Prince Skinny Chic

-Rahua Voluminous Shampoo and Conditioner (foil packets, yes, but MATCHING foil packets! That makes all the difference!)

 

The shampoo and conditioner are listed as separate products... does that mean I get to review 6 things this month?

 

post #1124 of 2106

I'm getting box 18. Not too excited about the box. I have a lot of eyeliners since I got the Stila set a few weeks ago so don't really have use for another one yet. At least I will have 6 products to review.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

  1. Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream)
  2. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
  3. Nicole by Nicole Richie
  4. Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray
  5. Oscar Blandi Pronto Wet Instant Volumizing Conditioner
  6. Oscar Blandi Pronto Wet Instant Volumizing Shampoo

 

post #1125 of 2106

So box 5 it is for me.  Of course out of six possible boxes for me, half of them having the one item I truly desire to try (the Hot Mama), I'm not getting it.  I am looking forward to trying the eyeko, unless it is some wacky color and the mattifying moisturizer though.  Maybe they will repeat the Hot Mama again next month.  I hope so.  I already contacted theBalm for a sample of another product and they ignored me totally so I see no point in trying again.

A little back I posted some thoughts..but if you like vanilla scents you will like it.  I personally didn't like it.

I think the name is terrible, and it would actually deter me from wearing it even if I did like the scent.  It is offensive, I agree.

Thank you. I don't mind vanilla but I have too many samples of perfume. I will keep one to try and give the other one away.

If any of you have friends in the UK that are envious of your BB's, it looks like now they can get one too.  I just found it here.

Definitely. Also, it's sort of bad marketing, right? I mean I'd never ever tell anyone I was wearing a perfume called Skinny Chic lol It just sounds...desperate? 

 

I got Box 9 this month and I'm thrilled!

 

ETA: I also felt the same way about the Ageless perfume--I really liked the scent but froze up when one of my friends asked me what it was called. I'm 25 so it seems weird to be wearing a perfume called Ageless that's supposed to make you SMELL younger (seems funny/ridiculous to me). They should just stick to generic names, IMO.

post #1132 of 2106

My page finally updated and shows I'm getting box 18. Not too thrilled, since I've already tried 3 of the items from other subs, and the OB heat protectant spray is kinda useless since I don't blow dry or straighten my hair. But...at least I'm finally getting an eyeko! I'm just hoping it's not black. I have enough black liner for now but would love one that's purple/olive/teal/anythingbutblack.

^^^^ This is exactly how I feel!

My box updated finally. I'm getting box 10. At least it contains the only makeup item for this month that I actually wanted to try smile.gif
post #1134 of 2106
I'm getting box 16. I'm really excited for this box. the one thing that I really wanted this month was the hot mama blush and yay it's in there.

Box 13 for my second account.  I'm actually only excited about the Clark's Botanical, packaging like that always sucks me in.   But whew! $115 for a face cream, I hope I don't fall in love.  

 
Everything else is pretty boring though.  At least I avoided the Juicy perfume!

 

post #1136 of 2106

And the box for my second account started out in Connecticut?  Haven't seen that before.

post #1137 of 2106

I'm pretty sure the name of the perfume has to do with the way the ingredients 'work'/stimulate you so you're not indulging in too many sweets. That's the way I understood it from BB's description.

 

In any way, sounds like a first world problem to me ;)

I like it! This is one of the only newer scents I've liked lately other than some from Juliette Has a Gun, a Harvey Prince, and one from (oddly enough) VS. I do wish my Sephora carried Tokyomilk because those sound very appealing to me.

post #1139 of 2106

Has anyone received a Juice Beauty sample this month yet? If so, what did you actually get? If people get the Apple Peel and don't want it I may have to start collecting some!

Is the The Balm eye primer a full size? smile.gif
