Birchbox February 2013

Recommended Posts

I just received my Feb box (I think it was 22?) and the Lancome mascara has a smell to it. This is the same mascara that was in the Sephora ItKits a few months back and one of the Lancome mascaras I received back then had this same smell so I didn't put on my trade thread. The other didn't have a smell to it at all. (I had a mascara that had the same smell when I was in high school, I kept it for the longest time because it had pretty Avon packaging.) But now I don't even want to use it, it smells like it's gone bad and that sucks for me because in the same box, the Skin&Co. body gel spilled. Has anyone else who received the mascara gotten one like mine? Is it supposed to smell bad?

I got the Hypnose Star in a Sephora It Kit.  It does have a scent to it, but not a bad one, I just thought Lancome scented their mascara.  I'm about to throw it away, though, it clumps and globs and does nothing for my lashes.  I miss my Benefit They're Real frown.gif (Nov Ipsy bag)

I've thrown away the ones I got from the ItKits but maybe if someone wants to deal with the scent I'll throw my BB one on my thread. It's not an entirely unpleasant smell but its not something I want to put on my eyelashes if it has that strong of a fragrance. It clumped on me too, the one that I did try. What's odd to me is that out of the three samples I've had, only one didn't have that smell. Oh well, on to next months Birchbox!

i don't know if this has been mentioned (just coming to this thread for the first time and there are just too many pages) but has anything been mentioned about the fact that for box 2 (i believe that's the number) the picture shows the lancome la base pro but the box and card and reviews all have the bi-facil? not a big deal to me, just wondering

I got this box and it had the bi-facil in it I think the person taking the pictures messed up. It was also one of the boxes that was very delayed because of the snow storm.

Yes, I received the Bi-Facil but the picture was La Base. Somebody got the picture wrong, but the review page was correct. So we did review what we actually got.

Haha! Yes, the points made up for the chocolate. =) This more recent box was pretty decent, I was lucky enough to get the one with the Macadamia products and I have to say I loved the mask so much I went out and purchased it.

 

I'm going to give them a few more months but I've been so, so disappointed with them lately.  Hopefully they turn it around!

Treat the problem with a professional skin expert, be it a skin beautician at your local salon or a dermatologist for more severe skin problems. Block the sun. Protecting your skin from the sun is important because the sun emits ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Over time, exposure to UV radiation causes many changes in the skin, such as wrinkles, discoloration, freckles or age spots, benign (non-cancerous) growths such as moles and precancerous or cancerous growths such as melanoma. In fact, most skin cancer is related to sun exposure. https://www.getwhiteface.com

    • When it comes to spots or full blown acne I cant go past This cream by MastoorA Beauty it shrank my pores massively, cleared my skin and has reduced the fine lines around my eyes. Granted the lines was something only i really paid attention to but they were there none the less.  I suffered severe pregnancy acne that was so inflamed and painful. This is what I used and it worked amazing for me.
