i'm happy not only with the box variety but also the sample sizes! i feel like birchbox really stepped it up this month.

 

YAY! Sample sizes seem HUGE compared to what I've been getting lately. I'm hopeful now!!!!

Wow. 28 inches is insane. But it's a great excuse to not have to do anything productive!

NYC isn't too bad...look like about 10 inches? But it's been plowed and shoveled. Plus the sun is shining bright!

dang, they're bringing back stila this month!?!?! hopefully that means more samples for more boxes in the coming months.

I'm hoping they get one specific color. I have fallen in live with these things, but I just can't justify spending actual money on them, so I get them from Birchbox with my points!

ETA: I don't necessarily mean that I hope they send this particular color in boxes. I just want them to have it in the store.

Where did you see "My Current Box"?

Ok now it doesn't say "My Current Box" anymore. So confused.  Wonder if that will really be my box.  (my posts are lagging because Im new) :)

My box was waiting for me when I got home from an overnight trip away this morning!!  It was super exciting to get one before the site updated; nice to be surprised since i have no self control.  :)  After looking through the pictures, mine is box 17 (https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/february-2013/february2013box17).  

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

It has:

  • Tigi Root Lifting Spray Mousse - I'll have to figure out how to use this, I don't do a lot of hair product usually
  • Hot Mama - very excited about this one, I've been wanting it since they first put it in boxes
  • Dr Jart - out of curiosity, I squeezed it to see how full it is.  Looks like it might have slightly more than the water fuse one did, but there's definitely a LOT of air in the tube
  • Juicy Couture-La-La perfume - I really liked the scent of this one; most of the other Juicy's I've smelled have been to floral or sweet or strong, but this is nice
  • Chocolate square - gone already of course! :)

 

 

 

Very happy with my box!  I actually don't think I'll be trying to trade anything out of it - for once!  :)

I'm snowed in & lost power over 16 hours ago. I don't know how much snow has fallen, but I can't even open my door. I hope the power comes back soon. I'm freezing & have finished my homework. I'm liking the boxes this month, though. I love Twistbands & hope I get something from them in one of my boxes, even though I have 4 from BB, 3 from Julep, & 12 from Sephora. I would LOVE it if BB sent the Alex & Isabelle double hair ties in future boxes. I have them and love them!
post #999 of 2560

Seems like there are 40 box variations and they are all up. I can get 23 different boxes! Most I think in a while, being as how I have been a member for a year. Snowed in here in Massachusetts. Hope everyone else impacted by the storm is safe. Still spitting snow here and the traffic ban is still in effect. Not sure if I will even have work tomorrow. We easily got 2 feet, maybe more. Stay safe everyone. :)

post #1000 of 2560

I clicked through all the boxes and I can get 36 out of the 40.  That's crazy!

I'm in love with boxes 7, 14 & 40. They actually made my pulse quicken!

It's a long shot... but a girl can dream.

Birchbox or Ipsy?  I might switch

post #1002 of 2560

There are a lot of boxes this month. There are also a heck of a lot of boxes I can eliminate because of theBalm products I've already gotten, the Jouer Illuminating stuff, and the Vasanti (somehow one or more of these products are featured in all of the boxes with the Nicole Richie perfume, so I've lucked out on not getting that again. Yes!!). I'm not excited to wait until Monday to know which one I'm getting, but it could be worse. Boxes look awesome this month. I still hope I don't get the Jouer Matte cream. That illuminating one was just awful to me.

post #1003 of 2560

This is the longest I have waited for a box to even give me info still no tracking or box update on my page. I have over 30 inches of snow in Coram I am thinking I will not have mail until maybe Tuesday.

How do you know how many boxes you can get and which they won't send you at all?

If you already got a product in a past month they do not resend. It eliminates some boxes.

You're not supposed to get duplicates of products you've already received. It happens on occasion still, but usually your box will have all new to you items. 

post #1007 of 2560
Oh ok make sense now...

Most of the doxes look really goos this month im excited....
post #1008 of 2560

I'm really excited for these boxes! My tracking info hasn't updated yet though so I can't even start guessing. Does anyone know if the boxes still update on our pages on the 10th if the 10th is a Sunday? 

 

There are only a few boxes with dupes for me, and everything I see that is a dupe is something I wouldn't mind having again. I definitely saw boxes I'd love more than others but nothing that was "oh please don't let me get that one!". The sample sizes look awesome too!

It depends on what you are looking for. My birchboxes have had highs and lows just because of all the different box varieties and box envy, whereas Ipsy is a good deal and there is no "box envy" since everyone gets essentially the same thing. But even after 4 months of subbing with them I ended up with way too much lipgloss and black eyeliner, but if you're the type of person who likes to try new/different brands of items you might already have then it's worth it.

Both! icon_smile.gif

Now that I've seen the boxes, I'm leaning towards hoping for 7 or 14. I'm curly hair in my profile, so I will be surprised if they send me a box without one of the curly hair products in it. There are lots of other boxes that have at least one thing I'd love to try. I guess I'll know tomorrow.

post #1012 of 2560
For those that have gone through the boxes, any idea what numbers the Welcome boxes are? I am on my iPad and keep accidentally deleting the entire link instead of just the box number.. Gah, it's making me crazy! I did a gift sub for a second box.
post #1013 of 2560

I'd be happy as long as I got either Kiehls or Lancome. Considering my past record with Birchbox, I feel like I'm gonna get stuck with another crappy box.

My guess is none of them. The gift box is usually a mix of older items.
post #1015 of 2560

I just got my box today!  Box 19... so loving it!

 

I got:

 

Box 19 contents! (Click to show)

 

-Color Club Polish in Wild Cactus (LOVE this color!)

-Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle (I have crazy frizzies, so huge YAY!)

-Dr Jart Detox BB Cream (Can't wait to try this against the Missha I recently bought)

-Juicy Couture La La (My first Juicy fragrance, to me it smells a LOT like DKNY Be Delicious, but slightly more floral.  I like it!)

-Ghirardelli Caramel Chocolate (NOMZ. Caramel is my true love)

 

 

 

Being an "fabulously wealthy 18-year old" is working out well for me icon_cheesygrin.gif I have loved BOTH boxes since I switched my profile. Putting up pics soon!

post #1016 of 2560

I looked through all the boxes and I'm annoyed cuz they made such a big deal about Lancome and its in only like 6 boxes. Such a tease.

post #1017 of 2560
Magicalmom what was the weight on your box?
post #1018 of 2560

Ideal box if I could make my own:

 

Color Club polish

detangling hair spray

Stila eyeliner

Votiva candle! (love candles woo!)

misc. skincare item

 

Boxes I'd like based on what's show:

10 or 25. there were others but none I went OMGWANT quite like those. I'd honestly be happy with whatever this month, since I can't get any of the boxes I don't want.

post #1019 of 2560

After looking through all the options, I would LOVE #1, 10, or 33. I really want either the nail polish or the candle! If I get a curly hair product, I'm going to scream. I have curly hair but never wear it that way and I changed my profile a couple months ago after getting Miss Jessies.

That's the funny thing... tracking said it weighed 0.6895 lbs. but I didn't think it felt that heavy... Granted I got 2 kind of "heavy" things, the nail polish and the protector spray, the Dr. Jart is almost empty (grrrr) and the perfume and chocolate weigh very little.  Plus I haven't seen anyone else with that box weight. 

 

so, .6895..... maybe?
