Caudalie SOS Morning Eye Rescue

Yes to Carrots Lip Butter

Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrube

Yes to Cucumber Facial Towelettes

 

6 products.. is that normal?!  And I'm pretty happy about what I'm getting, but 3 Yes to Products?!  I hope they're good, I've never tried them before!

I feel like this is a "welcome" box even though I already got my first one.  These don't seem to be the new products.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong?!

I'm getting the same box! I'm really excited about it actually. I'm not getting the polish or the mattifier, but I really wanted to try the beauty protector and cc cream. Plus, I think that means we get 60 pts for reviewing rather than just 50. :D And no food product either! Yay! I wonder if we'll get a whole lip butter? That would be awesome. So, no I don't think this is a "welcome box" because I've been subscribed since january, but some of these I've seen before, but that's not unusual for them to still send out items that were new a few boxes ago. I think the Caudalie is new? Maybe?

I have tried everything - age changing...increasing my yearly income...keeping my splurges un picked...having my true slurges picked...nothing really seems so help. 

 

I am darn curious about the sizes of the samples...someone posted the size of the youngblood...I'm curious about the Nexxus and dry oil sizes.

 

I will try changing my profile again (maybe) to see what happens....

 

As for the sizes of the samples...they do seem to be good sized samples (as they were last month also)... I just checked out the photos that have been posted in this thread to get an idea of the sample sizes.

 

I am curious as to what the Nexxus will do for my hair but I don't generally use oils on my hair.

 

I wish I could quit you BB, but I'm addicted to your point system...and maybe obsessing over what I will get every month :-)

Does anyone know if the mattifier is full size, or if any of this stuff is full size? lol. I've been slacking on stalking BB threads. Busy month.

This is what I'm getting. Don't know what box number it is.

Are you sure you actually got the full points?  I just reviewed the tea, and while it's showing up twice (two line items that each say +10), my balance only went up 10 (from 50 to 60, and then the second line item for the tea also shows a balance of 60).  Maybe it's just a weird glitch with how slow the site is bein?  Or you are super lucky and got extra points, ha!

Ugh, cilantro. I have the gene -- with the added bonus of cilantro = migraine trigger. I finally figured this out when I briefly started branching out into Thai and Vietnamese food. That ended once I figured out the common link, and I now use that soapy taste as a warning sign to stop eating whatever it's in. ANYWAY. One of my boxes has four items I was hoping for (can't remember what they are other than the nail polish) and one I have already tried and am willing to stockpile for emergencies/vacations but not willing to actually purchase (Fruity Pebbles shaving cream), so that box is a win!

I'm new to the group, and I'm sorry to have to ask, but how do you know which box you are getting before it actually comes?  I know the weight of my box, but I can't find a list on the BB website?  Help?

If you go to the Birchbox website, click the box tab, and it should tell you whats in your box. If you want to know your box number it will be in the address bar at the end (:

Used my real age (31) and income level for this one and of course that means I get the anti-aging cream. :) I am really liking the Supergoop products I've tried, though, so I'll give it a shot. I really wanted to try the Nexxus and the nail polish looks so interesting! It's my splurge product on this account, I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Interested in trying the Malin+Goetz brand but I have so many lotion samples now it's insane.

 

I changed it to my splurge product and got polish this time, before when it wasn't I wouldn't get it :)

Malin & Goetz Cilantro Hair Conditioner-I haven't tried it yet, but it smells good, better than I was expecting.

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick-So happy about getting this, and I like the color a lot.

 

Hail Merry Choclate Macaroons-Who wouldn't love to get cookies in the mail?

We're box twins! I'm not sure about this box yet, I'm excited about a couple of things, but pensive about others....

 

I've heard so many bad things about the body gel, so we'll see. Nexxus I'm excited to try! StriVectin....well I'm only 27 so...we'll see lol. I am happy to try the Youngblood though! I'm always good with a mattifying product :-) Anyone know if the Weleda is any good? I know nothing about it.

It's full size, but the non BB one twists up and this one you have to sharpen
