  1. I got the same box! I don't use nude nail polish, the lipstick is a card, and I have really sensitive skin so I'm worried about the pores no more (I also got it in my november birchbox man as well). At first I was bummed about the chocolate too (I'm on low-carb) but I emailed them for the nutritional info and it only has 5 net carbs for the firecracker one that I got, so I can eat it on a day that I'm really good! I'm fine with the Amika mask, but I would have really loved to have gotten a box with the TOCCA handcream or a fragrance.
  2. I feel so bad - I chose Mally in Melon, received it, and pretty much hate it Wish it went to someone who would have loved it!
  3. I'm doing that with the first one I received (but it is still pretty harsh for me!) - hopefully I can trade the 2nd one or gift it to a friend in like a goodie bag. Have to remember the holiday season is coming up! Super bummed because I wanted box 55, and I got it - but they removed the 2nd perfume that was on the box page before they shipped it! Also was hoping for the beautyblender instead of the jouer. Oh well!
  4. I will ship with tracking and expect the same! I would prefer multi-item trades if possible. If you have any items on my wishlist and will sell via paypal - message me! -------------- Birchbox samples: -Jouer Matte Moisture Tint in Nude -Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxident Concentrate Serum with Retinol -Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser -TEMPTU S/B Highlighter -Avène Cleanance Soap-Free Gel Cleanser -Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum -CAILYN Cosmetics Dizzolv'it Makeup Melt Cleansing Balm -Sumita Eyeliner Sample in Purple (lightly hand swatched) Birchbox Man samples: -PLANT Face Oil -Baxter of California After Shave Balm Other: -Magazine Card- Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate ---- Wishlist: -Pixi by Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm - Ripe Raspberry -TOCCA Crema da Mano Luxe - Hand Cream - Any -Atelier Cologne - Any -Not Soap, Radio Body Wash -Folle de Joie eau de parfum -theBalm® How 'Bout Them Apples in Pie -Bonobos Cotton Pocket Square - The Lincoln Square - Navy Floral Dot -Juliette Has a Gun Fragrances - Any -TokyoMilk Dark Femme Fatale Lip Elixer -Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner/Shampoo -Any Davines shampoo/conditioner -Number 4 Reconstructing Masque -SAGE + fasten fragrances -Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips -C.O.

  5. @[member=miss_marissa] I just received my box, and online it had the jouer + beautyblender, and I got the jouer matte moisture tint in nude, not a beautyblender. Just FYI! I received the Suki/Mally/Paulas/TOCCA perfume/Jouer box. Not super excited. I like the size of the mally lip (i got the peachy color) but haven't tried it yet. The suki foaming facewash I've gotten before in my birthbox man subscription, and it is too rough for me! I can't use the PC serum or the Jouer (my skin is just too sensitive/rosecea/acne). Somehow my boxes always have at least half skincare products, and it's the thing I can't use! I'd rather get shampoo or perfume (the two things it seems others complain about getting) instead of skincare/bb cream items The TOCCA Florence smells pretty though and it's a great size! Can anyone post to swap on the swap boards? I've been putting the samples I can't use (stuff like caudelie and such) in an empty birchbox and maybe I should get on that lol.
  6. Does anyone know if you receive a unisex product in the birchbox man box, if you can receive it in the women's box? I got the suki foaming cleanser a few months ago from birchbox man, but I really want box 55 (double perfume!).
  7. @ (& anyone else) what were your profile options checked in the box that had TOCCA handcream and the fragrance and Pixi balm? I'm just really curious how much profiles match up to the box contents, and since that's my dream box maybe I should change up my profile?
  8. Do they normally send out duplicate samples if they are different colors for the lip products? All the davines boxes that have loaded are paired with the pixi lip balm, except for two of them. I would love another pixi balm, but I would be bummed to get that lone box that has loaded with no repeats for me (19)
  9. @@HappyisYellow sadly the Bye Bye Redness and the tarte powder has all the 'cones in it, so I don't think it will work for my skin Everything that makes everyone else's skin look good seems like it is off the table for me! I will look into the cetaphil wash, but it looks like it's not non-comedogenic... @ The acne stuff (and EpiCerum) I use only at night, and just wash my face gently in the morning. It's definitely oil - I look almost just as greasy after 2-3 hours in my bedroom at 65* But for sure a bit more when I'm out and about or wearing a face of make-up. I will definitely look into the Milk of Magnesia primer trick!!! Thank you! @ I had no idea either!! I always thought my skin was not sensitive at all because I had oily, acne prone skin. I used scrubs (die-hard st. ives for years), the acids (salicylic, glycolic, etc.), benzyl peroxide all over, etc. I've also tried the whole run-down of drug-store acne stuff + pro-active, etc. I was actually using the purity face wash for a while and my skin actually got a whole lot better from not using salicylic acid face wash, which surprised me, but still wasn't the best for my skin.
  10. So about two months ago I was diagnosed with super sensitive skin, acne, and rosacea. My dermatologist told me no more scrubs, no more saliclyic acid (my skin is basically too sensitive to it and it was causing cystic acne), I'm sensitive to silicones (make me break out), and just "switch to non-comedogenic make-up." Luckily my skin is not that red compared to others I've seen, but it I'm just all over rosy. I'm less worried about the rosiness, and wayyyyyy more concerned with my acne and oily skin. My routine consists of the following: -CeraVe Normal to Oily Face Wash -Adapalene Cream (Differin) .1% -EpiCeram emulsion [as my moisturizer] -Persa-gel spot treatment for moderate to severe cystic acne [has lessened since routine/makeup change, but blackheads and such have continued] -Benzyl Peroxide 2.5% cream for skin when needed, but dries me out too much to use too often -Everyday Minerals matte face powder in ivory (1N) + EM concealer when needed My skin gets incredibly oily within two hours (literally what a pool of oil in a pan looks like) with or without make-up on. I was using the Everyday Minerals anti-shine powder, but it made my face feel like it had a bunch of dirt on it once the oil was soaked up into it and reached its saturation point. Blotting papers only solve the problem for about a half hour or so, and it's impossible as a teacher to continually fix my make-up. What can I possibly do??? My skin was so sensitive that the dry to normal CeraVe face wash irritated my skin (I'm guessing Cetyl alcohol because it isn't in the version I use now). Primers that work all seem to have silicones in them Literally, my make-up doesn't stay on longer than two hours. On the weekend I barely wear make-up but it's the same deal - feel like I have to wash my face by mid-morning. Please help!!
  11. I doubt it will go smoothly! (Though maybe I'm being a pessimist.) The men's box had a pick-your-sample last week for the September box, and the choosing closed after 4 hours, when it was stated it would be open for 2 days. I was pretty disappointed!
  12. @@mellee - Thank you for the tip!! My derm only diagnosed my rosacea a few months ago, so I'm new to the whole thing. CeraVe wash + EpiCeram cream at the moment. I got the Vasanti Brighten Up a few boxes ago, and decided just to use it on my lips because my skin does not need micro-dermabrasion crystals.
  13. How come everyone keeps getting black eyeliner when they don't want it/didn't select it, and I haven't gotten any and would love to receive it in my box?! I also keep getting BB/CC creams when I can't use them because they break me out, and exfloliants when my profile clearly says I have rosacea I selected the stainiac because lip products never give me trouble, and I haven't gotten any the past few months. For some reason I keep getting tons of skincare even though I don't have it checked. I wish birchbox would make sub-categories on their profile questionnaire.
