Birchbox January 2013 - Page 32

post #931 of 2106

It was me, it should pop up when you search it on the birchbox site. Some sort of 'discovery deal' or something. They sent an email out about it this morning. 

post #932 of 2106

okie dokie so the tracking updated, but my box page hasn't & i'm getting scared. My first box weight is .3721, does that sound like foil samples to anyone else besides me? My second is .4250, this is a little better! My third box has a tracking number, but it takes me to this UPS weird page where it wants me to enter my tracking number & anytime I do so it basically just refreshes the current page... I'm getting nervous haha. Has anyone had a weight of .3721 or .4250?

Looking through a thread specifically for trading is a lot easier. Not sure why the thread was removed....

Yay it was received by the local PO at 5am today even though it's not projected for delivery until the 12th. My box page hasn't updated yet either, but if I can get the box today, IDC for at least a week. I'd almost rather be surprised by opening it lol

 

Also, the box tracking literally showed up on my account page within the last hour... even though it was shipped on the 8th. Thanks for the tracking email, BB?

post #935 of 2106

I agree, but without a central trade list, I think it's going to happen.

No box update yet, but I finally got a tracking number. Weight is listed as .5060. Anyone have a matching weight and know the box contents? I woke up this morning so excited to see what I was getting, and now I have to keep waiting. eusa_wall.gif

Didn't get the "you box has shipped!" email yet, but tracking is up for me. Projected delivery date of the 15th, which means I'll probably get it around the 17th :(

post #938 of 2106

on main box put face cream as splurge and getting box 1.  second box put makeup as splurge, getting box 34.   still have yet to receive an eyeko liner on either box and have been with bb almost 1 1/2 yrs:(

post #939 of 2106

How do you know which box you are getting?

post #940 of 2106

Oh and my weight is .4640

post #941 of 2106

I say I'm going to try to be completely surprised every time, but I always get impatient and want to look. Usually if there's something I really want I'll click on the item page from the shop so I can just see if I'm getting that specific product rather than ruining my whole box for myself. I'm already getting impatient haha

post #942 of 2106

Its funny the things we ladies come up with in our daily cleansing routines...I use Benefits foam every morning,DDF every night and Vasanti every 3 days....followed by Its Potent for my eyes and Sampar for the rest of my face which I apply while my face is still damp.. I have oily skin with large crater sized pores, I still break out at 46!! Now I have the joy of wrinkles to combat the T zone oiliness...I just cant win but this routine works best for me!

post #945 of 2106

I'm getting box 8. Slightly bummed after the stellar box I got last month, but ya win some...ya lose some. I will probably put the entire box on my trade list.

post #946 of 2106

I'm getting box 12 with the following contents :)

Box 11 weighs 0.5280. Not sure whether that helps but it is fairly close.

post #948 of 2106

Peeked at a few of the items that I wanted and I'm getting a box with Put a Lid on it which I really want to try!

post #949 of 2106

They posted my tracking number but not my box yet.  The numbers after bb in the tracking number are 39, so I am guessing I am getting box 3, since there is no box 39 :-)

post #950 of 2106
My tracking number finally showed up! Estimated delivery January 15 and 0.4050 weight

The box contents have not updated yet so I have no idea what it could be, aside from already having gotten Le Fleur and the Eyeko skinny eyeliner in previous boxes

If so, then it would include:

I am getting box number three, and it looks pretty good. I do have a bit of box envy, because there are so many good things to sample this month, but

I think the Beauty Profile should be tweaked a little bit. I think Birchbox should have a section like choose what brands you are most interested to try, then below there is a list of brands that you can click that you are interested in. Then at least one of those brands that you clicked would show up in your box. Then if people didn't like their box they at least got one thing from a brand that they wanted to try. I realize that not all brands are in every month's box, so maybe you would have to choose a minimum of 10 brands from the list.

 

Is anyone following me? haha. I suggest this because there's certain brands I've been dying to try (NUXE, Benefit, Caudalie, Miss Jessie's) & haven't received any of them. I don't know how to tweak my beauty profile to get them either, which is why I have three accounts all with drastically different profiles. 

 

My second suggestion is that they put some kind of allergy question in there. If you have an allergy to some kind of makeup or beauty ingredient then you are taking a risk by subscribing to a BEAUTY box. If you have a food allergy it shouldn't matter because this is a BEAUTY box, and we shouldn't be getting food anyway. But it does matter because Birchbox sends out food. I think if they are going to send out food then they should at least account for people's allergies. I am allergic to all tree nuts & peanuts & I have received so many wasted energy bars. Even one tea I got last month had marzipan in it, which i couldn't try. I know that I am not the only one with this issue. Birchbox's defense to this issue is that those are "extras" & didn't have to be included in your box. All I am asking is just to not receive anything that could possibly kill me in my beauty box lol. 

 

On a positive note, I do love BB. I have found many products that I do enjoy. However, they are a fairly new company & I think they could improve some things.

 

What are your thoughts & opinions? (:

Tracking number for me but it hasn't been updated. I too am getting the ups "enter tracking number" page.

Birchbox bills itself as a beauty AND lifestyle service, so I can understand including food. BUT I do think they should leave out products with nuts, as it would be so easy to find other snacks, etc without that very common allergen.
