Subbin'

Excited for another month of birchbox and subbing.
post #453 of 2635

 

I'm late to the party but here was my mystery pack - Wei Pomegranate Beads and C.O. Bigelow Lemon Lip Cream.

 

Haven't tried the pomegranate beads but the lip balm smells sooo yummy - just like a lemon dessert!

Sub. Can't wait for the spoilers and the anticipation of next month! smile.gif

post #455 of 2635

This is very, very off topic, but I'm excited and there's no exciting Birchbox news to talk about, so...I think I am going to make my first ever Sephora purchase! I got the email about the Beauty Insider birthday gift, so I think it might be time!

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Here is what I'm thinking:

  • Lash Stash (I'm a little worried because I don't have a full Sephora store nearby--just one in a JC Penney, and I don't think the voucher works there. Does anyone know if these vouchers expire?)
  • Benefit Birthday Turn-Ons (Free Birthday Gift)
  • Deluxe Sample Murad Clarifying Cleanser (Free with code YOURGIFT...also considering the Philosophy Falling In Love body wash)
  • Free Sample Tocca Cleopatra Body Cream (So I hate lotions, but I want to know what Cleopatra smells like...maybe I should try the Living Proof serum instead?)
  • Free Sample Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm (This looks really cool/interesting!)
  • Free Sample Fresh Face Mask
  • $2 back for using Ebates

 

All of that for $30.95! I feel a little guilty about it, and maybe I should just go in to get the free gift, but my eyelashes are probably my worst feature, so I really could use some decent mascara to pretty them up. If anyone can tell me about whether or not the Sephora vouchers expire or speak to Living Proof's serum, please do!

gah, i really wanted those bobby pins... hope they're back soon.  my own fault though-- should have known with the CEW boxes then the 50 extra points code that people would be on those like crazy to get free shipping for their orders.  hope it doesnt take another month like the origins charcoal mask did to get back in stock!

I read somewhere on Sephora.com's forum that the voucher does not expire. But you can not redeem in at Sephora in JCP stores. I attached a copy of the back of the voucher in case you were interested.

So my Birchbox order shipped and tracking shows it was insured for $100, anyone else have that? I spent $50 after discounts.

Are you referring to the voucher for the birthday gift? If so, it's valid up to two weeks before your birth date and two weeks after. Although I was able to pick up a birthday gift months after last year.

 

I love the Living Proof serum. I use it every morning before I blow dry. It makes my hair very soft and frizz-free especially against the humidity. A little goes a long way, so a bottle will last you nearly forever.

Ok so I realized I still had my 9 month 20% off code so I broke down today. Beauty Blender Duo, Caldendrea Dish Soap, and a Pineapple Cilantro Candle... plus the mystery pick 2 pack. Spent $13.56 out of pocket after 20% off and $20 in points. :) I hope I get a great mystery pack!

This is a nice one!

After seeing these awesome mystery packs I decided to place an order too. 

I heard that you need a special cleanser for Missha's BB cream because it's really dense, so I figured I'd try Dr. Jart cleansing foam, since they recommend using it to take off their BB cream too. Looks like it has good reviews, so I'm looking forward to it :) And, of course, how could I resist getting more Suki!

I use Missha Perfect Cover bb cream, and philosophy purity works just fine for me. Added bonus: it works on eye makeup and as a brush cleaner, too (I have yet to find a cleanser that gets the Missha bb cream out if a beautyblender better than this stuff). And it's $50 for 40 ounces during the Nordstrom anniversary sale.

Nah, I use Missha almost every day and any cleanser I've tried works for it, it IS a little harder to get out of  sponge though. But I'm curious about that Dr. Jart cleanser so pleeeease let us know how it is!

Thanks for the suggestion, I will try it if I don't like Dr Jart.

Great mystery pack. I'm pretty jealous of the bottle of shampoo. I only got a foil.

ENABLER ALERT!!

OT, but Philip B has lots of products on sale right now on Hautelook! I've been eyeing the Chocolate Milk Body Wash & Bubble Bath for months now, but couldn't seem to pull the trigger for the $36 price tag...just scored the body wash/bubble bath (12oz) AND the body lotion (6oz) for $25 TOTAL! (Plus the $5.95 for shipping)

I can't wait too! The anticipation...
 

post #478 of 2635

I thought they were out of Suki. I looked for with my order last week. I'll go back and check.

post #479 of 2635

Me too!

I just checked and mine is as well. My order total was only about $30 after I used 100 points. I've never seen this on my Birchbox shipment before. Come to think of it, I don't recall it on other packages either. I just like that it's listed as 2 day priority shipping. My USPS packages have been arriving after their estimated delivery dates lately. So at least it won't be as long as last time.
