Birchbox pick two mystery packs

Recommended Posts

Two recent msp's: Each one had the dreaded manna kadar highlight/bronzer plus a Dr. Jart mask and the other a Burt's Bees tinted chapstick.

 

I have at least four Manna Kadar bronze/highlighters floating around, but never used it until the other day. Surprised to say that I actually like the bronzer as contour. The highlight is meh, but not horrible. Their MSP's are so hit or miss these days (mostly miss, and many way under $10 value).

I got a pick two with my order and it arrived today.  I got a Living Proof Nourishing styling cream and a Juara Radiance Enzyme Scrub.  Not too bad.

I really wish they would stop with the foils.  I have long hair and I usually never have enough in the foils to do a proper wash and condition.

MSP:  foil Loreal Mythic Hair mask and a Wish Lavender body butter.   Blah.  I've stopped trying to reach $35 just to get a MSP because it's been months since they were worth more than a buck or two (definitely not "$10 or more" value as promised). 

 

I bought the Amika mini hair dryer during their "power up" sale. It was a good deal, but I've been finding their sale emails are so confusing and often misleading.  The first day of the sale, it said they had added new things at 40% off, but it was just one Benefit kit that was 40%.  Then I got another email saying they were doing BOGO, yet I never found any products marked that way.

My last order had the mythic hair mask too, along with a small tube of a Juara face scrub. I tried the scrub and I love it, I don't know if I'm going to use the hair mask or not.

My recent one was another mythic hair mask foil and Eva NYC hair mask. I don't use hair mask but I was able to give them to a friend. Stil, two hair masks Birchbox?

I couldn't find a "Birchbox customer appreciation day" topic, but still wanted to let everyone know in case you're wondering, so I'm writing here.

I just received my CAD order 1/2 and the CAD extras are amazing! I didn't think we would receive deluxe samples, but they're large deluxe samples of 50ml Oribe supershine moisturizing cream (which I LOVE) and 0.7oz Vasanti BrightenUp enzymatic rejuvenator. Hope you all placed an order that day and will receive these goodies.

Yes I placed two orders. I got one yesterday with the same samples I was so surprised!  
 

I also placed an order that was over $35 so I added a sample pack. I hope I get another set of the Oribe and Vasanti in addition to two other samples.  

That was very generous of Birchbox. way to go!

I placed an order as well and was so happy about the Vasanti and Oribe samples. I haven't received my order yet but hoping I get them.

My second order has a LE box (fitness box), an MSP, a GWP set (ingredient conscious set with $50+), and these CAD extras. It's still en route. I am so happy with the gifts and free $10 they gave us for CAD, this is very generous of them <3

    • Ohhh, you did a really good job! I hope that you will keep doing a thing in the same way. You really have a talent for it. Also, I would like to present myself. I am an editor for the edureviewer and we need your help with video reviews. Check out this article https://edureviewer.com/services/speedypaper-com-review/. We want to make a special video review for it. If you are interested in it. Just contact us!
    • I just found the Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Full Collection Box. Prettiest thing I have ever seen. It is me! Planning to get it as soon as I have the money. So romantic, and has skin care too. I WAAAAAAAANT IT! I don't know how to add a photo, but you must see the brushes. 
    • I tried to talk myself out of it but ....👿 is on my shoulder. Spoilers: besides the brow product shown above Becca Ultimate Lipstick Love Coverfx Perfector Face Palette IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream Morphe 15 Shade Palette 5 other items yet to be revealed. It is getting more and more impressive; might be getting it.
    • According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, shedding 50-100 strands is perfectly normal and you don’t need to go for any treatment for that. A hair grows in three phases including growth phase (Anagen), resting phase (Catagen) and Shedding phase (Telogen). Initially, a hair remains in the anagen phase for about 2-5 years before going into resting and shedding phase. During the resting period, the blood supply to the hair follicles becomes limited which as a result makes the hair delicate. In the Telogen phase, the hair is completely disconnected from the hair follicle and sheds off, where it is replaced by new hair from the same hair follicle. Since the old hair is replaced by a newer one, the overall density of the hair is not disturbed in this case.
    • In time for Valentine's Day, a little haul from Shop Miss A came today. I love it. Shop Miss A is an online makeup shop where everything is $1.00. I've been buying for years from them, but I am excited to see that they have more skin, hair, and body care items now! And the products are quality. Research revealed that many of the new skin, hair, and body products come from Fisk Industries on New York. Fisk makes Barielle, a quality nail care line, and hair products distributed by Sally Beauty Supply, among others. You can get hair masques, scrubs, serums, hand creams, body oils, for $1 each! I notice a lot of things sell out often on Shop Miss A. So I check the New Arrivals sections often. You have to stay on top of it. I also try to keep a budget and limit myself to 5 items or fewer so my total will be under $10.00 with shipping on each order.  Latest haul: Luxe Beauty Care Collagen Skin Cream - full sized skin cream for $1.00, in a nice box. It does have mineral oil, characteristic of a lower priced cream. But also shea butter. I don't mind mineral oil.  A0A Studio Pure Cotton Squares - great Shiseido cotton dupes for $1.00. Package is little, so you have to purchase these often, but they are great!  Pink faux fur makeup bag - Lancome had a promo with a pink faux fur bag and I wanted it so badly, but I think you had to pay $60.00 for the GWP, so I had to pass it up. I got this instead! Dermactin T-S 2 step collagen masque - This is from Fisk Industries. I love 2 step sheet masques. It even comes in a little sleeve like a CD case. Cute! Excited and only want to shop more from Shop Miss A! I have another haul on the way with Fisk hair balm, scrub and some other things.
