Birchbox February 2013

Recommended Posts

I second the Serge Normant Dry Shampoo is crap. (not that i'm a dry shampoo expert- i've never tried one before, but this left my husbands hair feel terrible and look dull and greyish) that's right- i wouldn't even use it on my hair, lol.

I'm really really hoping they'll sample the Clark's Marine Cream again this month for all of us who didn't get to try it in January.  This is one time I'd actually like for them to repeat a product!

I had to contact the seller to do buy it now. lol Not bad though. less than 14 for the whole thing. and it had joy lipsurgence and a pretty silver essie. Ahh. I can never save money lol. Hoping we will get more tarte this year! it would be festive if we got some pink and red lipsurgences or glamazon lippies

I love your taste in makeup. :) You got me wanting to try more Tarte. I hope to get it in GB!

I truly hope those are Zoya for Feb!! BB introduced me to Zoya in my first box (best box ever) I must say it is my HG of all nail polishes. Another Zoya would only be right! :D

I *believe* they mentioned the Rodarte box being the February box. Also that there would be some kind of foundation/face makeup product in Feb as well :D

where did you hear this???

I tried searching for any information about it and couldn't find anything. And usually when they partner with people for boxes they promote them a few weeks before the beginning of the month to generate buzz/get people to sign up...

Feb is the last month on my gift sub. I seriously hope it is better than my last two boxes! I love BB for the points, so it would be really hard not to continue, but I do wish that the samples were less disappointing!

 

Maybe some good changes will come from all that hate on their FB. Come on Birchbox! Make all those meanies regret unsubbing!!

Either way I'm excited! I guess Birchbox gets my money for a few more months.

I would love to see a collaboration/curated box, because I've only had BB since Dec and I want to see what all the hype's about!  I would also love a nail polish.  And a foundation/face makeup item.  I WANT IT ALL, BIRCHBOX!!!

Blargh, I got Rodarte and Ruffian mixed up.  As far as I can find, no date is known yet aside from the fact that it's this year.

Judging from their spring collection it's all about pastels, perfect skin, sculpted cheeks, either nude or red lips, brows and big hair :)

Sounds perfect to me! I opted out of the Goop box (thank goodness) and have never gotten a collab box, so I'm pretty excited.

I might sub soon, like tomorrow or today :D I so hope they improve their boxes cuz I'll drop SS and pick up BB, cuz their point system is awesome. And with SS you get NOTHING for being a sub, but the box.

You may want to put yourself on the waitlist now, it's averaging about a month for the wait.  Then when you get your invite, you can either accept it and drop SS, or ignore the invite if SS sends you a spectacular box.   Or, you know, have both wink.gif

Don't you get $15 a month off full size products with Sample Society? I was thinking about doing both for a couple months to compare.

I told the bf I might drop SS key word here...MIGHT, but actually I wouldn't be on the list for THAT long, cuz I've already been on it for like  3 months XD

I've tried the Fresh sugar lip scrub and it is OK, I would never buy it again.  I think a lip scrub I make with a little argan oil and a little regular sugar from the sugar bowl is better.  The scrub does the job on my lips and tastes better than the Fresh brand.  And it is also cheaper!

It looks like this answer is to a different question than was actually asked:  Yes, you get a $15 credit to use towards full-sized products, but they have to be the brands (not necessarily the specific products) being sampled that month.  So if they're sampling, say, By Terry moisturizer, Oscar de la Renta fragrance, philosophy cleanser, Deborah Lippmann nail polish, and Vincent Longo lip liner, you could use your $15 towards anything you received in your Sample Society box -- or you could get By Terry lip gloss, philosophy 3-in-1 shower gel, Oscar de la Renta powder, Deborah Lippmann nail tools, or Vincent Longo eye shadow.  And the credits don't roll over month to month, so it's a use-it-or-lose-it deal.

You are right, I didn't read, I'm watching tv at the same time lol. Even if I do get a $15 off...I would have to actually buy an item, whereas with birchbox you can collect points and end up getting it for free.

Is there a minimum purchase to use the 15 dollars off, or could you get something that qualifies brand-wise, but retails for 12 dollars, for free?

And the $15 off is for a minimum $50 purchase... so it's not such a great deal unless you were planning to splurge in the first place.

I just use my (clean) toothbrush on my lips every few days and then apply a natural lip balm.  That's the cheapest way I've found! wink.gif

    • Hey! I'm 28 years old and I've NEVER been able to find makeup that works for me. Foundation is my downfall. I put it on and it somehow goes all patchy and funny coloured on my skin. I've tried mousse type, liquid and powder. I just always look ridiculous so I never wear it. (I have oily skin in parts and large pores)   Does anyone else have this problem? Any advice? Foundations to try? Am I supposed to use something under the foundation? I'm a total beginner!
    • If you are familiar with Peltor headsets, you have probably been initiated to a world of quality and great value. Probably one of the most popular Peltor products is its line of excellent headsets. When it comes to the best sounding headsets, Peltor is the name that you can definitely trust.

Whether you will be using it with your old school listening equipment or any modern media player formats, its 25db noise isolation mechanism ensures that every listening experience is worthwhile. A lot of Peltor headsets are designed to shutdown unnecessary noise and hiss but the Peltor HTB79A-02 sure stands out when it comes to making any audio track ring out with pristine quality and unbelievable quality, more information about hearing protection you can read on Mentoolbox.com. Unlike other brands such as Koss, Philips, Skullcandy, and even Bose, Peltor headsets cancel unwanted sonic impurities without diminishing the overall dynamics of an audio track. This means that Peltor headsets are especially designed and manufactured to retain the nuances of any recording.  Now, some of you may complain that this particular model, unlike past Peltor headsets, is not that loud enough. Of course it is. The Peltor HTB79A-02 is made this way on purpose. Most Peltor headsets are designed to produce sounds exceeding 85db but the Peltor HTB79A-02 Listen-Only headset is different. This headset is designed for a more, well, quieter listening experience. Compared to other headset brands and models, the Peltor HTB79A-02 is designed to prevent deadening your aural faculties.

Apart from these unique features, the HTB79A-02, like all Peltor headsets are built to last for many years. The manufacturers use only the most durable materials so that you can enjoy noise-free aural pleasure for a longer time.
