I would have LOVED that box!!  Lucky you!  I got box 7 that I won't use except for the eye roller and body wash and  box 8 that I'll use but doesn't really excite me.

That's possible!  

 

I think I'm experiencing latent anxiety from registering for classes the other night.  Similar website slowness.

I got my e-mail that my box has been shipped around midnight est - I thought they would have updated by now...but I guess not.  Hmm.  I am patiently waiting for the page to load....I feel like it's 1998 and I'm using Dial-Up internet connection lol.

I am getting box 11, shipping finally updated, it weighs .6070. This is what I am getting

 

 

Nothing I am super excited about but I think it is a pretty good box.

YAY! we are box twins!! I'm actually really excited for the simple and the mirenesse glossy kiss!! The LAFCO soap sounds indulgent as do the serum and shampoo! Overall I'm actually looking forward to this box!!

Yeah, I'm very happy with it! I've been super happy with my last 3 or 4 boxes.

I got box 13 on my main account:

 

https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/april-2013/april-2013-bb13

 

It's not as *exciting* as my secondary account, but then I remember that I already feel like I am drowning in makeup, and this box has several things I wanted to try, or already know I love.

 

 

 

 

 

Juice Beauty Cellular Repair CC Cream

 

I know a lot of people hate the smell of this, but I smelled this at ULTA awhile ago, and it didn't bother me/went away quickly.  (Although, I worked at whole foods in college, so maybe I am used to that kind of natural product scent?)

 

I got this as a sample in my other account last month, and now I have to full size versions.  I obviously love it, but I will be looking to trade it, if I can actually figure out the trade thread.  I am crossing my fingers for that color changing polish, but I am combing the website to see if there is anything else they are sampling too.
Psyched to try this
 
I already own the facial towelettes, and I have loved everything else I've tried from the yes to line.

Yep, I still remember the first time I had cilantro, at a Mexican restaurant, and I kept saying "I keep tasting soap in the salsa...I think they didn't wash the bowl correctly."  And everyone thought I was crazy.  The next time we went back, same thing - I kept complaining about them not rinsing their bowls properly, and my friends all thought I was insane.  It wasn't until I went to a different Mexican restaurant and tasted in their salsa, that a friend realized what I was talking about and said "Holy cow, you have the cilantro gene!"  And then I had to look it up because I didn't really believe her.  Makes me wonder what everyone else tastes when they taste it!

Are they only sending out one shade of Mirenesse?  If so, bummer.  I was all excited to be getting 2, but if it's just that one shade, not so much.

Wait, what?  It's not supposed to taste like that?

Cilantro is my favorite!  It makes everything really bright/fresh tasting.  Similar to how an acid can really lighten up a dish, or how fresh mint tastes without that tingly feel and not as sweet.

I've tried guacamole a few times now, and can't stand it because of the cilantro.  If I remember correctly, it did taste a little soapy.

I mean, obviously my description doesn't apply if you are someone who has the gene that makes it taste like soap.  I was just trying to describe how it tastes if you don't have that issue.

It just tastes kind of bright and sharp and herby to me. :)

Yeah on my 1st box, I've gotten box 1 for the fourth time in a row.

Aw man, I am getting two of the same box. My profiles aren't that similar.. One i have had for two years and the other is three months old. HMPH. lol. Finally got the emails but the tracking doesn't even show that they have left, I bet it's another week before I get them. Needless to say, I will be trading.. Really want the StriVectin eye cream! 400

A little off topic, but what did you think of the 23andme genetic testing?  Was it worth the price/wait for you?  I'm intrigued and $99 is right at the point where I feel like I could spend it to satisfy my curiosity, but I still don't want to drop a hundred dollars if it isn't as cool as it sounds in my head.

In the spolier video it showed a full size, so that's what i'm realllllllly hoping for!

Earlier I had re-watched the spoiler video to see the sample size, but I was surprised to see that they only showed the full size...I'm hoping that we get a full-size too (since a lot of boxes have a full size simple eye roller, mirenesse lip product, or nail polish). However, I would not be surprised if we got a sample size. I don't have an update on shipping yet, so hopefully someone will post a pic of this box soon!

Oh, FYI guys, I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but I just managed to fill out all my feedback surveys and for products where I received double samples (foils, tea bags, etc.), I received double points.  So, for the 6 products I had in my box, I received 90 points, if that makes sense.

My box FINALLY updated! I am not super thrilled with my box...which is box 1. I will try/use the Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir and the StriVectin Eye Concentrate but I'm just not interested in the other items (Youngblood Anti-Shine Mattifier, Caudalie Divine Oil, Weleda Body Lotion). I really wanted the color changing nail polish and/or the Mirenesse Glossy Kiss. I am also bummed that I only have 5 items to review...it's been forever since I've had 6 items to review. Sigh...

 

I have my profile set to a 32 year old and that my splurge item is "the latest make-up color" but I hardly ever get any sort of make-up item. Any suggestions?

 

(yes, I will probably be putting up the youngblood, caudalie and weleda up for trade...just saying wink.gif )

    • OMG! A new arrival has came to my eye. I found this new makeup site that has the best makeup products for low prices that are affordable . I tried this new sponge Korean gradient lipstick that  made my lips pop See for yourself. You have to try bel- la nyc.

    • I would definitely go for elongated toilet. We have two of these installed in our house and I'm so used to those. Though American Standard is a decent brand which I was using in my old house, but nowadays Woodbridge is my choice. T0001 is a good choice indeed, it's even mentioned on Sanitaryreview as one of the best choices due to it's compact size and minimalistic design. Though I must say that you posted a wrong photo, T0001 is has more cubic shape.
