Oooh, 100% Pure! I've been wanting to try some of their products for awhile now!

post #93 of 1576

Some of those items look interesting.  This is definitely making me optimistic for January.  

post #94 of 1576

Now that the holidays are (almost!) over, I'm super excited for my Birchbox this month!  Haha I barely looked at mine (aside from wolfing down the fortune cookie!) in Dec, but I know it will be a vital part of my "It's cold AND I can't shop anymore!" winter let-down.  I absolutely loved my January 2013 box and I'm hoping this one will be just as great! 

post #95 of 1576

Along vaguely similar lines, my cold is pretty much gone, and I'm practically not coughing (thanks to allergies, I always have a cough, but this is almost at the usual just-allergies-and-not-anything-to-worry-about level), but I was sick for so much of December that I barely looked at my boxes because I didn't want to associate any good stuff with the ick.  Even now, though, I keep looking at the box contents and thinking, "Meh."  I'm definitely hoping for some good stuff in January!  I'm specifically crossing my fingers and hoping that they send stila out.  It doesn't matter what they send or even whether I get it.  I just want free shipping on stila stuff!  The cap on one of my favorite smudge sticks cracked, and now it's unusable.

 

I'll probably get whatever lip product they send out since they love to send those to me.  I just hope it's not a warm color, a red, or a plumping product.

Send all the plumping products my way! I have almost no top lip. Lol. If I put on plumping products, it's at least kinda there. Lmao.

The one I'm seeing on IG lately has the beauty protector shampoo and conditioner, benetint, a sparkly polish, and a full sized Ghiradelli chocolate bar

This is what I got in my Welcome Box in November, although I'm sure they change it up fairly frequently:

I gifted 2 subs in December and they both got: Beauty Protecter Spray, Laqa Lip pencil-ring of fire, Chauo chocolate, Harvey Prince Hello and a Color Club nail polish in Dark and Stormy.  Boxes I wish I would have got.  Lol

I just started Birchbox (and Ipsy) in December, I'm excited for the new year. I haven't been able to get my December Birchbox yet though, it's at college. D; I won't see it until the end of January. So I'll have two by then.

post #102 of 1576

I am so bad about trying to find out what's in my box before it arrives! I did some digging and came across this link: https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/january-2014/january-2014-bb6 and it shows me 5 items that I'm assuming are going to be in my January box! I don't want to totally spoil anything for others but I think if you want to know what's in your box this month before it reaches you, you can go to that link and peek!

 

It didn't show eye shadow for me like the BB spoiler on Instagram. Of course, we don't all get the same thing! I'd be interested to know what others see when they go to that link.

I think that's what's included for people receiving box 6, but I haven't found out a way to determine which box variation I'm receiving before my https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1 page updates with the January selections. Although, you can apparently view your box history in the iPhone app and determine what's in your box by a process of elimination before the above link updates. I don't have an iPhone, though, so I'm not sure if the hack is working yet this month.. 

 

If you want to view the (currently half-populated) box variants, you can find them at the following URLS:

Ohhh okay! I didn't understand that there were variations determined by a number. That makes sense, and now I'm going to go look at every one of those and try to guess which one I am!! Haha. I don't have an iphone either, but I think I can probably figure this out by looking back at my past boxes on my own!

 

Thanks so much!

So far the app trick isn't working this month.

I think you can whittle down the possible boxes you might be receiving by eliminating any that had an item you received in a previous month, but I'm not 100% sure they never send out duplicates. Can anyone verify?  It seems that people get dupes in the Pick Two/Mystery Sample packs (and people with more than one BB sub).

Well I was able to figure out that for December, I was bb30... Yes, there were that many variations! I stopped there b/c it matched what I received but there was probably even more. I tired to do this same trick for November though and had no luck so not sure what number I was then? I assumed it would be the same number each month but that didn't work. Ahh well maybe it isn't meant for me to know yet! After all the fun is in the surprise, right? (I always tried to peek at Christmas too :P)

There are usually 50ish variations a month and box number changes, at least no pattern for me. Box pages will slowly start populating as the 10th comes closer

I'm wondering if that's the Inika Mineral Eyeshadow from the Instagram that's showing up in a couple box variants, maybe in Thunder?

You shouldn't get duplicates. But you could get a different "flavor" Like some people got tea in November but they got a different tea in December.

I'm hoping it hasn't updated and the "discovery" section thing will work again for this month.

If you're on the desktop site, here's how to figure out your box number:  Go to your box page (the current month's box page for everyone will always be https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1).  Scroll down to the Box History section.  Hover over the thumbnail or click into the box for whatever month you're interested in.  The resulting url will look like a little something like this:  https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/december-2013/december-2013-bb2.  The box number is whatever that number at the end is.  Your box number may or may not be the same every month.  The only surefire way to know what's in your box before you receive it is going to be waiting for the boxes to load on the 10th, and even then, Birchbox might accidentally send the wrong one to you or load the wrong box onto your profile (in that case, you need to reach out to Birchbox to either send the correct box or change your page to what you received so you can do feedback for the items you received).

I'm pretty sure there's no rhyme or reason to the box number, beyond what you get matched to. My box numbers for the last 5 months have been 50, 27, 7, 11, and 73. Maybe I should put that on a Powerball ticket and see what happens.

post #114 of 1576

Do any of you know if Birchbox sends samples to people that have already bought the full sized item? For example, I already purchased the Liz Earle cleanser from BB last month, and it seems they are sampling them again. Would there be a possibility of me receiving it, or do they check your purchase history before choosing which box to send to you?

They don't look at your purchase history, so you could still get it as a sample. :) 

post #116 of 1576
. My app is showing this. It won't show me the contents yet but I noticed it say 059 beside it? Box 59 from December maybe?? Hmmm
post #117 of 1576

I took a look at those links that show what's in the different boxes (half of products anyways), and it looks like a bunch of repeats. I basically have multiples of everything that they are sending out, which is partly why I cancelled one of my BB subs. I am excited to try the INKA products. It looks like there are a couple of boxes that are including those products. 

post #118 of 1576

I went onto the app and checked the discovery section. It's not loading past a certain point for me. Since I have an iTouch, I'm not sure if it's just because it's a little older and more slow than the iPhone. Is anyone else able to see if the discovery section trick from last month is working?

Mine is doing the same and I'm on a 5.
post #120 of 1576

I am giving BB this month and next month to wow me.  If not, I will cancel :(

I do love their point system, and being introduced to high end products. However, the samples are WAY too small! I hashtagged birchbox on instagram,  my comment said that they need to step up their game, their sample sizes are way too tiny and they replied, eek! Hopefully, they are listening to all the complaints!
