I'm just afraid if they start sending out larger products they will have to increase the price. I love that it is only $10/month! I'd have to cancel if it went up too much :/

 

I got a sample of racinne ultimate youth power eye serum that I thought was eensy when I first got it, turns out that sucker lasted me over 2 months.  It contained over half the amount (.17 oz) of the full size product (.3 oz) that i purchased (for $32) a month ago and just started having to use this week because the sample ran out on me.  

 

About the only samples that have made me go "WTF?!" were the Yes To grapefruit CC cream foils they sent in September (but that was also the month I got the racinne so it balanced out), and the bliss incredipeel foil they sent last month.  I've been pretty lucky with all of my boxes getting decently high end samples.  And getting that deluxe sample of benefit's sugarbomb gloss and the baldwin blue color club polish made the box for me.

I covet this box!!!

post #183 of 1576

From the app trick, it looks like I am getting:

 

Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Conditioner

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara

Nail Rock (what is this?)

Reviver Dry Deodorant Swipes for Clothes

Juara Candlenut Body Creme

 

I'm underwhelmed at this point..... but will probably change my mind after I learn more about the products.

 

 

Also, a trick for the app trick :wizard:... it helps to sign out and then sign back in again. You should more easily find new box history items. :)

post #184 of 1576

Well, I do not have an iPhone so I guess I will be waiting a little longer to see what I am getting :( Oh well. I kind of hope they do another video this month like last month (or maybe they do that every month?). Looking forward to seeing what I get ^_^

I'm doing my second half marathon in April!! :)

post #186 of 1576

i want headbands. me me me!

post #187 of 1576

Hmmmm..  usually the app trick is spot on but it's not showing anything for me yet.  Strangely, though, it IS showing a lot of stuff as "Seen."  But unless they're sending my like 3 boxes, I'm don't think that they necessarily mean anything.

post #188 of 1576
I can't get the bb app but PLEASE OH PLEASE LET ME GET THE UNDER ARMOUR HEADBAND!!!!!!
post #189 of 1576

OH i know not all TJ Maxx stores have the same stuff but FWIW, my TJ Maxx has these braided Under Armour headbands for like, $3 each? or maybe its $5 for a set of 3? but yeah. thats an option.

Ooh, *everyone* gets this one! I've thought about getting a velvet set but have yet to buy it. Navy blue flocked nails would be *perfect*. I hope I get that version this time around!

 

I don't think so. Everyone in the UK got one last month. That link is for Birchbox UK, not US.

post #192 of 1576

It looks like I will be getting three headbands...which is great!  I am not a runner, but I do have a large property and do a ton of gardening and yard work, so they will be well used to keep my curls in check!  Last week I was even out in the cold doing work, but there is always so much more to do!

Whoops, missed that. But they are showing up on both of my accounts, so I'll just keep on hoping I get different colors and textures.
post #194 of 1576

i think i'm getting inoco glitter ombre nail strips and maybe some harvey prince ageless-pink grapefruit. ..hmm... I kinda lost patience and got dizzy with all that scrolling so I had to quit. Hopefully the next 3 items are good.

post #195 of 1576

In clicking through the box variations on the BB site, it looks like not are all fully populated.  Is that because the remaining items are added based on previous items you didn't receive?

 

Using the app trick, it appears that I'm getting Box 44:

 

Toni + Guy Cleanse Shampoo

Toni + Guy Nourish Conditioner

Ahmad Tea

100% Pure fruit pigmented mascara

???? 

 

Mascara is my go to product, so unlike many people, I like getting them so I can open a new one every 6-8 weeks.

post #196 of 1576

What I am getting:

Ruby Wing color changing nail polish

100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream-it's coconut....I.hate.coconut.smells!

TEA-I HATE tea! correct me if I am wrong, haven't these been recycled three months in a row?!

Liz Earl Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth. Again, hasn't this been done three or four times?

 

4 products....that's it? I hope I missed something else.

 

Other than the nail polish, I am not looking forward to this box....AT ALL. Is it wrong of me to want to through a tantrum like a two year old, ugh! Sorry, maybe I need to finish my coffee.

 

Way to start 2014 with great products, so disappointed.  I was giving them this month to decide if I was going to stick with them.....not looking good there birchbox

post #197 of 1576

I'm in the same boat as the girls supposedly getting a man's box with beard oil, iphone 5 case etc. Hope it updates soon to the correct box!

WOO!  I love halves because they are such a mixed bag--from the super serious to the walkers.  It's a challenge but not a whole lot of pressure.  Also, I finally get an opportunity to use all the cleansing wipe type things I get in BB, after long runs before showers.

The Ruby Wing is full sized and the 100% Pure they send out in several scents.  I got the green apple before and they also have vanilla honey and almond.  You may still have another item update on the 10th when the box pages finish loading.

Looks like I am getting the exact same box! Pretty pleased with everything, actually. I just need to find out what exactly this "Omni Potent Duosity" is...
post #204 of 1576

Getting:

Regular Sub:

  • Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Conditioner - what the heck is dry conditioner?  Wondering if this is supposed to be dry shampoo?
  • Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion - yep dry winter skin, will use
  • Coastal Scents Revealed Palette Set - Is this Coastal Scents version of the Naked palette?  I hope so since I'm getting it in both subs
  • Nail Rock - very excited to try this
  • ?  I got tired of scrolling for the possible last item

 

Gift Sub:

  • Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit - already got in my regular sub but traded so I might keep this one
  • Under Armour Braided Mini Headbands 3 pack - yes please! I can't get enough headbands
  • Coastal Scents Revealed Palette Set - dup, might trade if it's whacky colors
  • OmniPotent Duosity - meh don't need, probably trading
  • Camille Beckman Body Butter - yep dry winter skin needs body butter too

I was one of them- I logged out of my app for the night, and logged back in this morning and it looks like it is all fixed! Now it is showing:

 

Fekkai Glossing Shampoo

Fekkai Glossing Conditioner

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion

Coastal Scents Revealed Palette Set

Harvey Prince Journey

 

Kind of so-so on the box, would have liked some higher quality products but I'm sure most will get used!

Birchbox has ALWAYS recycled products over a number of months. Once you have gotten something, you will not get it again with the exception of color variations. The Liz Earle kit is awesome. I'm hoping to receive it in my second box this month. 

Also, they haven't finished loading the boxes to the website yet so there may still be another product.

There are 75 variations this month. So far.

post #209 of 1576

I just had a thought.  Since I have no new products coming up in the app, I thought I'd ask what your box ship dates say.  Mine is the 10th and I have a non-clicky clicky truck.

post #210 of 1576
The trick is working for my second account, but not my main! Looks like one box will have:

100% Pure Body Cream (hope they changed the packaging, main account got 3 ketchup packets a few months ago)
Amika Color pHerfection Shampoo
Clark's Botanicals Smoothing Marine Cream (yay!)
the Balm Put a Lid On It
Harvey Prince Skinny Chic


Not a bad box!
