Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne- not thrilled about getting perfume/cologne but I saw others raving about this so maybe I'll really like it?!  I'm super picky with scents.

Supergood Anti-Aging Eye Cream- actually just said to my fiancé last night that I should start using anti-aging products.  Good job BB.

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss- very excited to receive this!

Kusmi Tea- not an exciting thing to receive in BB but I like tea and I'm up for trying something new.

 

Overall I'm pretty happy with what's coming.  It should be in my mailbox tonight... can't wait to open it up and start trying everything!

also, be sure to actually put the parfume on your skin before you decide if you do or do not like it - i've found i didn't like any of theirs smelling from the bottle, but liked them very much on my skin.

Oh, Birchbox.  I think you've finally done it.  After 2+ years, I think I'm ready to just quit.  I'm getting 38.  Not one thing I'm interested in, for the 3rd month in a row, I think.  This was the last month of this annual sub too... bad time to really disappoint.  

 

I emailed the other day to ask whether my sub would auto-renew, and how to make it not because I was thinking of not renewing right now.  I also asked if I would ever get anniversary codes again, which I haven't received in about a year.  The girl who responded seemed completely uninterested in keeping me as a customer (which, I admit, stings a bit, as I have referred so many people that they sent me info about the affiliate program rather then the regular referral program at one point...?), and didn't even address the anniversary coupon question, just told me that she set my sub to not auto-renew.  Uh... thanks.  Nice knowing you too, BB.

Which is all I seem to get anymore. I told birchbox it had one more month after last month's awful box. I may have to take myself seriously on that one.

Understandable.

 

This is why BB should come up with some kind of trading system similar to LLB's trade system. I know if they start tossing in anti wrinkle creams, eye creams (which a person can def have to much of!), and lotions into my boxes I'm leaving them.

That's a good idea (although I haven't tried LLB yet)!

Box twins! My thoughts are about the same as yours :)

I received the ojon rare blend oil several months ago and it came in a glass vial that was the same size as a perfume sample. I have dry, wavy hair so the formula worked very well for my hair!

I'm going to attach a photo I took from my blog of the ojon rare blend oil that I received in my birchbox a few months ago. Hope this helps!

Getting that one too, I wanted the polish, but everything else is "meh" for me...
I feel the same way, but the nail polish makes up for the whole box (I never had anything like it and I was determined to buy it from the birchbox shop if I didn't get it anyways) and I will definitely get a lot of use out of the eye roll-on, so overall I'm happy! :)

Uhm, no.  I never got to liking the taste of the LifeBuoy or IrishSpring my mom would wash my mouth out with when I was a kid ... why would I grow to like the taste of cilantro?  Heck, I don't even like the way it smells.

I know I'm late on this conversation thread, but I'm reading the posts backwards. I used to really hate cilantro. Partially, I think it was the cilantro at the grocery store was weird or old or something, but a bundle of it smelled so bad. I couldn't even stand to be in the same room with it. Then I started eating it in indian food, which is my favorite type of food, and it grew on me. I'm not saying you should eat it anyway, but if you wanted to like it, go to a good indian restaurant and try the cilantro chutney. A lot of indian food has just a little bit in it, and can get you there gradually. But cilantro chutney won me over. I still can't stand the smell of fresh cilantro unless it is actually fresh and organic.

 

I am wondering how fast the BB shop is going to sell out of the color changing nail polish, now that everyone knows if they are getting it or not, and everyone wants it. If I hadn't just spent my last $10 in points on that recent sale, I would have ordered it already. But I kind of want to know what you lucky ladies think of it, before I buy it.

Thank goodness, someone else with my same box!! I was getting worried there because I didn't see anyone else with it.  Do you have any experience with the Yes to.. products?  And woohoo for getting 6 products to review!! When is your box supposed to arrive?

I know! This is my first time getting 6 products. :D I've never tried any of the Yes to... products but I have heard good things. And one of the ladies here mentioned that in BB man they got a full sized lip butter product so that would be really great! They have melon, mint, pomegranate, and berry. Those all sound good to me. :) My shipping hasn't updated yet, but I am pretty close to their distribution center so probably soon! How about yours? I am excited so see what size everything is.

I super need the mattifier-at least I think I do...I don't want to buy the full size though unless I know what it's like.

I live in Florida (it's 80 degrees today) and I work in a restaurant that is 90% outside. I like to do what I can to keep my face from looking like a nasty shiny mess.

So, feel free to send (or trade) the Youngblood over here.

I'm considering bumping myself back down to the lowest income level to see if I'll be happier with my boxes..

 

But I just got hired for a job where I'll actually be a few levels above lowest one! (I posted earlier about an interview, thanks so much for the well wishes guys! Please don't see this as me complaining about having too much money lol unsure.gif) Ultimate awful first world problem that makes me feel really guilty for even posting it: do i put my now "true" income or my little-broke-college student income? 

 

For reference, I got box 1 this month.

 

Or, really, are these whole profiles things just a crapshoot? 

I got box 1 and I pretended I was a 15 year old girl making six figures a year, lol

In marches box, I could barely get 1 use out of the shaving cream, and not enough uses out of the blemish cream to see if it made a difference : I wish I was getting some sort of makeup item though. :( so much skincare. Not much fun. At least there is the CC cream - does anyone know how big of a sample this is? Please tell me it's not a 1 time use packet/bubble!

Looks like a good box.

So Birchbox finally started loading on my computer & here is my box for this month. It is a good box but looking at the eyeshadows they are all bright colors, I am not adventurous with eyeshadow stick to nudes.

I am convinced that people who hate brussel sprouts were all scarred by truly horrible preparations of them! (ie: BOILED!  boiled brussel sprouts are the worst!  why even bother???)
My dad loves brussel sprouts & my mom is a horrible cook. The only brussel sprouts I've ever had were from those steamer bags in the frozen section at the grocery store.

I was feeling kinda bummed about my box b/c I wanted to try the color changing nail polish and the Mirenesse glossy stick.... low & behold I struck up a trade and will be getting the glossy stick. Yay! Gotta love the MUT trading that goes on around here!

 

Now, if I can only find someone to trade with for the polish... rolleyes.gif

I love the cucumber wipes, but didn't like a tomato scrub by Yes to, so hopefully the grapefruit will be different. I just finished up my potion no 9 or whatever it was from glossy box, so I'm excited for the styling cream, and I always love eyeshadow. Can't wait for it to get here!

That's a great box.

I'm getting that box too and pretty much feel the same way. We got the same boxes last month too, our profiles must be the same!

I'm getting box 38. Which contains exactly 0 things I wanted. AND my tracking number hasn't updated. So I don't even know when box of stuff I don't want is going to get here.

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.
