I didn't get an email about a snowed-in box.

 

Here's what I'm getting - weight is .5430:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Ghirardelli Square

Miss Jesse's Pillow Soft Curls

Vasanti BrightenUp!

Dr. Jart+ Black Label BB cream

Color Club nail polish

 

 

 

This won't be a bad box. Interested in trying all of it!

I logged in and this is what it showed on my acct  box 29. Now its gone so I am hoping they are wrong. Hate this box. Tired of the juicy samples and I am sure the tinted moisturizer will not go with my complexion

If the vasanti sample is the same size as last time, it will last you a while! I used it as instructed and it lasted me about a month!

I love that mud mask! I bought it from the BB shop back in July, use it every week, and still have a ton of it left.  It even smells nice.

I haven't looked through all the box combos yet but I would LOVE box 13.

post #1236 of 2560

No clicky truck, my box is "snowed-in" and my page hasn't updated :(

Not everyone dislikes perfume samples...

Newbie, here :) Been a lurker for a while but finally decided to join the fun.

My page finally loaded and I'm getting box #38! https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/february-2013/february2013box38

 

I'm really excited :) One of the best one's I've gotten! Changing my profile info worked pretty well for me so far haha

i was one of those ant perfume sample  people until they sent me Harvey Prince Perfumes ive gotten hello, eau flirt, and skinny chic and i love all 3!!!

post #1241 of 2560

Honestly i bet there are just as many people who like them as those who don't. it's just that the people who don't like it keep complaining about it every month, so it seems like there are a lot more who don't like it.

Yes!  I love getting them.  I am always too overwhelmed by perfume counters, even when i utilize the coffee beans every thing mostly smells the same to me!  Everything just smells gross in the store, so i can't even pick one to take home.  I bought the jouer fragrance last year and am planning on getting eau flirt when my year promo comes.

post #1243 of 2560

I really don't mind getting perfume samples, especially because I haven't found a holy grail perfume yet. In the year that I've been subscribed, I only got one perfume that I absolutely hated, the Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir one.

See I would have LOVED that box instead of more marylou manizer and nail polish

I like the perfume samples too, or at least 2/3 of the ones I've gotten from BB (yikes, Nicole Richie!).  The Skinny Chic was amazing and I even liked the Couture La La I got this month.  I'm the same way with getting overwhelmed at the perfume counter, I don't even know where to start! I've gotten several perfume samples from my subs since I started, and while there have been a few misses (Billionaire Boyfriend, Nicole Richie), I've found a lot more that I really like (Thierry Mugler's Alien, Skinny Chic, Versace's Bright Crystal)

 

So keep 'em coming, BB.  I'm cool with perfumes.

post #1246 of 2560
My point in bringing up the perfume was to target the part of the original post where the hope that survey responses would be tied to our profiles. Perfume just happens to be the most common item type that many people desperately wish they could opt out of, for multiple reasons.

lmao I have the same problem, isn't it a major PITA?

Yeah, plenty of people enjoy Ipsy. What you said about the markets seems to be true most of the time. The only thing they seem to have in common with BB (other than the obvious fact that they are both monthly beauty subscriptions) is that they both cost $10 per month. Plenty of people even subscribe to both. I just get so tired of the whole "switch to Ipsy" thing on FB, like it's illegal to subscribe to both or they are exactly the same so you only need one.

I get both Ipsy and Birchbox- they are really different. The only reason i would get rid of one is to save money not to become some kind of loyalist.

Mine lasted me way longer than a month, but I did switch it off with Lush's Ocean Salt.

What did you do to change your profile? My last couple of boxes have been duds and I'm waiting to get my box and not peek this month because I'm afraid I will be disappointed. 

post #1254 of 2560

So I did my kinda spoiling myself method of clicking a few items to see if I can leave feedback on them and I'm disappointed I'm not getting Couture La La because I'm one of the seemingly few who enjoys Juicy perfumes.

post #1255 of 2560

The only good thing I have to say about my box is that I didn't get anything for curly hair...I saw a lot of products in the shop for curly hair (which I don't have.)

But I got the stupid twistband headband, and even though green is my favorite color, I'm not too thrilled with the looks of that color club nail polish.

post #1256 of 2560

I got box 13 this month, and I'm happy. From skimming this thread, it seems to be one that lots of people want, and I rarely get that box lol. I'll use everything in it, though like the other times they've had dr. jart the sample in the tube is a tiny amount. I have a ton of tiny mascaras at this point, so this one will join those and eventually get used. Overall, good box/month for me. I still probably wont' renew after my annual sub is up next month, sample fatigue is really getting to me. 

post #1257 of 2560

Ok guys, I need a little help...I started my year subscription last March. Does that mean this was my last box, and I need to decide now if I'm going for another year or switching to monthly?

post #1258 of 2560
So my gift sub was set to ship on the 15th according to bb when I bought it. I was hoping it would ship early but guess not with Nemo! I am so excited for double the fun each month. smile.gif

Does this show what you will get in your box?
post #1260 of 2560

When it comes to opt-out options, I'd rather be able to opt out of food than perfume. I don't mind the perfume samples, but I am kind of tired of Juicy. My mom got the Bvlgari in one of her boxes and I loved it. Even though I'm in my *ahem* 20s and my profile reflects that, I would like to try some more mature scents over more teen-ish smells. But when it comes to food, I'd rather not get them. And with so many people having allergies and/or diet restrictions, it just seems dumb to keep sending out food items. I know people are ok with food as long as it's an extra, but it seems like they are starting to take the place of samples. A lot of boxes this month only contain 4 samples & a piece of chocolate. My thing is, with so many sub options out there, if I wanted to try food, I would sign up for a food sub. Birchbox is what I would consider a beauty sub. But I really can't complain. My box isn't bad this month.
