Birchbox pick two mystery packs

Recommended Posts

I'm going to guess that these mystery Pick Twos will be staying, I think it's what they're doing to clear out their inventory now that the first box of a subscription isn't filled with random products.

 

I'm totally craving another mystery pack, even though my first hasn't arrived, like the junkie that I am. I was toying with the idea of ordering 5 of them (you know, so that one would be free, since it'd be over $35...).

I can only imagine the increase in orders they've probably had by offering them. At least from MUTers ;-) I love surprises like this (the same reason I'm a sucker for Julep mystery boxes too, haha) so I'll definitely be planning more orders as long as they keep offering these!

Mine just got here!  That was pretty quick, honestly.

 

I got Miss Jessie's Quick Curls 2 floz, and Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara in Excessive Black/Noir. 

 

I'll definitely get use out of the mascara, but am unsure about the Quick Curls.  Anyone else used that before?  I've heard good things about the Miss Jessie's stuff.  But my hair isn't curly.  It does have some wave to it though.  Will this work for me?  Or should I throw it on my trade list?

 

Thinking of placing an order today for either  the Suki Balancing Regimen or the Juice Beauty Organics to Clear Skin Set.  Anyone use either of these?  I need another mystery pick two!

Here are the items from my mystery packs this week. I'm a HUGE fan of "Beauty Protector" so I'll gladly take a repeat of this sample. One more mystery pack coming tomorrow-so addictive,right??

I placed an order for both CEW Boxes and a Tweezerman tool, with the total just over $50, and received a Mystery Pack with the Benefit Finding Mr. Bright set, and two foil packets of Jouer Luminizing moisture tint.

I cracked blink.gif and got the Suki scrub I've been wanting with a 15% off coupon I found online, plus one of those weird SARAHPOTEMPA hair bun tools (as an alternative to sticking a sock in my hair), and the pick two mystery pack. I'm excited to see what I get!

I received the 12 benefits hair spray and the vitamin capsules that they were sending out a few months back (can't remember the brand at the moment). I'm happy to try these and ready to order my next mystery pack! The downside is the Amika dry shampoo I ordered is one of the worst dry shampoos I've ever tried! I'm returning it.

For my $100 order, my mystery sample pack included By Terry Hydra Matte Nude Base (a huge sample, wish I could do photos!) and a gorgeous green Sumita eye shadow which looks full-sized. 

 

For my free ship with code (BBSHOP or something, got it off this thread) and points so it was "free", I received Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative conditioner (love this brand, and the sample size is big), and a strange little half-full vial of Lift Lab Lift and Fix High Potency Solution.

 

I've not tried three out of four of these brands, so I am THRILLED, and I love Ojon products, so Yay! This little half-ful vial is kind of strange but more fun than receiving something I've already sampled.rolleyes.gif

Oh no, my amika dry shampoo will be here today. I really liked the Serge dry shampoo they sent out a while back, but I couldn't find it on the website the other day. Can I ask why you didn't like it??

I'll preface my opinion by saying that I am a dry shampoo-aholic and I have tried dozens of them and go through a couple cans a month.  I have actually thought about starting a blog just about dry shampoos LOL.  My hair is super long and thick and I dont like to get up early so I only wash it like twice a week and dry shampoo is my best friend all the other days (I actually think my hair looks better 2 or 3 days after washing). 

 

This one doesn't spray very well (like if you have arthritis you probably wouldn't even be able to do it) and the powder doesnt comb out at all.  It just kind of stuck to my hair very weirdly.  I had to rub my hair with a towel to get it off.  I shook and shook and it still did this.  I also don't think it really even absorbed any oil, and certainly not to any level that I am accustom to.  For $22 I am totally disappointed - especially since the packaging is soooooo freaking cute.

 

I didnt think anything would trump my TIGI Rockaholic (the most HG product ever) but I'm always up for trying a new one.  I recently tried the Klorane one from BB and I would say that one is right on par with the TIGI, so I guess I should've just bought that one.

 

Hopefully it works for you, hair products can be so different on different hair types! Please post what you think when yours arrives smile.gif

Well, I got two mystery packs today. The first had Incoco Nail Polish Strips in Freshly Picked and a Vichy Aqualia Thermal cream. Really nice, I love Vichy and have been wanting to try the nail polish strips. My second pick two turned out to be a pick one because all I got was an Ojon volumizing shampoo. I don't even know if I should complain as it was free but I really wish there had a least been a perfume sample in there as well.

Thanks for your input! I received the Khlorane dry shampoo and I feel like it made my hair dull. Like I said, the Serge Norman was great, but I couldn't find it the other day?-weird! I'll give the Amika a good try, and will report back with my findings!

My BB pick two mystery packs from last week: From my order I got on Saturday which contained my CEW boxes LL And from my Model Co lipstick order ealier that week.  LL
Omg. That pack with the Algenist sample is the best one I've seen yet. Not that I need any more Algenist at the moment, but it is my favorite, and one of those little jars lasts me six months, on average. That's the same size that comes with $100 kit and a full size serum. I hoard Algenist.

Thank you so much for the TIGI recommendation. I only shampoo every other day, and sometimes my roots get oily on even the first day, so I am alway excited to try New dry shampoo, but I hate the white powder look on my roots. OT but I have no idea why my tablet capitalizes random words like New. Weird.

My pick two yesterday: the Algenist and a Ken Do can't-remember-the-full-name towelette. Funny thing: That order had two packs of Willa towelettes.

That sounds like my dream two pack. I love the Koh Gen Do Spa Cleansing Water.

I would email or call Birchbox and tell them about the pick 2.  They have great customer service.  I am sure she would either send you something out or credit your account with points...

    • 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.
