My box weight is .4270.  I've seen a lot of people say they are worried/disappointed with a lower weight and I wanted to see why that is? This is only my third BB so just wanted to know if these lighter boxes are typically worse or something?

Just wanted to say we may be box twins!

Box twins!  It's just kind of a meh month for my taste, not super excited about anything.  

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The CC cream is light to medium, which is way to dark for my light to corpse skin.  Everything else is fine.  I would have liked some color cosmetic or that fun polish, but oh well!  I may end up loving it all.  How did they know I have gigantic dark bags under my eyes?

I'm actually really happy I have yet to get a clicky truck. I don't like any boxes posted so far. My first BB was really ugh to me so I hope this one wows me.

I just got my birchbox in (the projected shipping date was April 11th, but it came two days early-so I'm pretty excited.) If you are curious the weight of my box is: 0.5340

 

Here is what came in my April birchbox:

1.) Beauty Protector (Protect and Detangle) --full size = $21.95

2.) Caudalie Divine Oil (for use on skin, hair, or nails) - 0.1 fl oz -- full size = $9-$49

3.) LAFACE Laboratories Beaux Yeux Beautiful Eyes Concentrate Intensive (cream for moisture and wrinkles) - 0.1 fl oz --full size = $160

4.) Supergoop! Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream in light to medium - 3 ml -- full size = $32

5.) LIFESTYLE EXTRA: Hail Merry Chocoalate Macaroons (vegan and gluten free) - came with 2 -- full size = $5

 

Overall I am pretty happy with my box because I know I will use everything.

The full size in the shop is a twist up, I called BB this morning and they confirmed this. The one we received is also full size but it has to be sharpened (still figuring out how though). Kind of odd for them to go through the trouble of creating a different pencil just for the BB boxes, seems like it would have been easier/cheaper for them to just send the regular twist up version

I'm not sure. I thought the full size has a twisty bottom as a self sharpener and this does not

 I love Orange Sanguine, and credit Birchbox for helping me discover it!  It totally changed my attitude towards receiving perfume samples smile.gif.

I too am confused by how to sharpen it though, I gave Birchbox a quick call and they confirmed that it is indeed supposed to be sharpened. No idea how though since it seems to be thick plastic icon_scratch.gif I guess once I use as much as I can I will attempt to sharpen it, here's hoping it doesn't break. unsure.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I got the Mirenesse in Quick Kiss (#7)
Caudalie SOS Morning Eye Rescue (1.5 ml)
Hail Merry Macaroons (0.88 oz)
Malin + Goetz cilantro hair conditioner (1 oz, does NOT smell like cilantro! Herby and pleasant)
2 Herban Essentials Towelettes (1 Yoga, 1 Eucalyptus)

Good idea. I just hate sharpening plastic pencil products ever since I purchased those NYX Slide On eye pencils and the sharpener did nothing but chew it up. The end result was a horrible looking, unevenly sharpened pencil. I think I would of had better results had I sharpened it with my teeth!

I'm no longer waitlisted. Just placed my first BirchBox order. Can't wait to get it in the mail.

wait those are sharpenable? o__o i thought i was just geting to the end of my product.I'm like 99% sure they're not sharpenable since the part surrounding the product is plastic. I can take a picture...

 

 

oh i guess you can. it seems really weird to try and sharpen plastic though. 

post #1071 of 2799
So I got 2 of the exact same box! Kinda bummed- I am interested in all of the stuff.

Less importantly- I forgot my phone at home today and my fiancé drove to where I work (it's a hospital and a pain in the neck to get in the building) and left it in my car before he went to work but also left my two boxes in my car! best at work surprise ever.

lastly, not a huge fan of the macaroons after all... but my co workers loved them!

I use the NYX pencils as well.  I use a Styli Style dual sharpener (bought at Rite Aid), and it works great.

It's too dark for me as well. Two tubes tossed into the trade box LOL

A tad too dark for me too. I'm thinking it will work for me after a little bit of a tan from the pool.

Interesting.

 

I don't understand why they're plastic though. It's so obnoxious and I actually thought like I went through my $18 MSRP pencil in like 2 weeks >_>

You could always depot the Mirenesse

Well that's good to know, I guess it was just my sharpener then

I'll try the "teeth method" as a last resort. icon_cheesygrin.gif  I would hate to ruin the pencil because it's such a beautiful color!  According to the BB site, it's a "daring orange" (Quick Kiss), and I just read an article on orange lipstick and thought "ooh, I wanna try that".  And voila!  Orange Mirenesse in my BB!

Woah that is a lot of product. I'm glad someone mentioned this because I would've just been super sadface and thought I'd have to throw all of it away.
