Birchbox February 2014 (SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

Me too. My first box got lost in Newgistics purgatory, and my second one is MIA, too. :(
Mine is supposedly being forwarded from my old address to my current address, but it's taking like two weeks and it usually only takes like three days (for usps which is who is handling the box at this point) for shit to get from PA to Iowa. RAGE. I'm thinking of calling birchbox tomorrow. Even though they're out of February boxes, I want to make sure that my march box will come to the right address. (I updated it on the website, but...)

I FINALLY GOT MY BB!

 

Unfortunately the tea I got will kill me. Womp womb, grapefruit. (Grapefruit anything + von Willebrand's = nononononono.)

 

Verrrry pleasantly surprised with the size of the shampoo and conditioner samples, though! I can't wait to try them :D

I feel like I'm the only one who isn't in love with the smell of the BP spray. The BP oil isn't as potent to me. I got this Ion (I think?) brand spray leave in conditioner from Sally. I got it for free with a purchase but I think it's $8 for 8oz and I feel like it does the same thing as the BP spray. I'll check it out when I get home. I like it but it's not something I use in my hair rotation every time after I shower
I actually don't like the scent either! It's too sweet for me and I prefer clean or floral scents.

I really liked the BP scent when I received it, and I love how the spray detangles my hair without weighing it down too much.  But now that I am pregnant, the smell kind of makes me nauseous!  Now I only use the spray sparingly and switched over to using my 12 Benefits the majority of the time.  I also have the conditioner, and it seems much stronger in smell (maybe it is just the steam amplifying it or something).  I can't use it at all.

So... We all remember the Benefit Big Easy Peelie issue, right? I went to Ulta today and the nice lady at the Benefit counter gave me THESE: 400400 A little tube! Definitely enough for 2-3 full face applications. Also, how cute is that teeny brush with the matte powder!? So maybe if you want a bigger size sample of Big Easy, try Ulta? Couldn't hurt! The lady had a whole drawer full of the stuff!

@usofjessamerica Yes they did!  She gave me the Light (lightest shade) and gave my aunt the Light/Medium.  I could see little rows of all the different shades.

 

(And I'm totally using that tiny brush to get out the last of my The Balm's Sexy Mama powder from the edges of my compact!  It's about 80% pan right now, and my poor fluffy kabuki brush just can't pick up the powder like it should anymore!)

Good to know! There's 2 or 3 ultas around milwaukee but I'm NEVER on those sides of town.

Public service announcement time!  Don't forget:  SUNDAY IS THE LAST DAY TO DO FEBRUARY FEEDBACK!  I just double-checked to make sure I had received everything.

I apologize if this was already asked, can someone post the link for this months swap thread (is there one? I can NEVER find it!).  Thanks :)

Hi! I'm assuming you're looking for March - here it is - http://www.makeuptalk.com/t/141458/birchbox-swaps-march-2014#post_2302411. You can also search for birchbox swap and it should pop up. That's what I did before I joined the swap group so it's part of my open subscriptions.

    • My personal recommendation would be the beauty products from Spa Ceylon, a Sri Lankan brand that combine Ayurvedic ingredients to form natural beauty products. A favourite would be the Neem & Tea Tree Purifying Mineral Masque as it worked wonders on my sensitive blemished skin.
    • I need to do western blot of RBC globin but i can't find how to extract globin from the cells. I will use anti-AGE antibody. Did somebody do something like that? Thank everybody for answers!               show box  
    • Step #1: Select the best Wella Toner as the above tips. Step #2: Next, mix up the Wella hair toner. Step #3: Now shampoo your hair. Step #4: Time to apply the Wella hair toner onto places that need it the most. Step #5: Now you can leave Wella hair toner to process for about 5 minutes as per your need of to neutralize, brighten or deepen hair. Step #6: wash your hair and applies hair conditioner to rehydrate your colored hair. Don’t shampoo your hair again. It will ruin your entire effort. AND How do you use a Wella toner?
    • My skin is dark in color. Is it possible to undergo skin whitening treatment? Is there any cream or lotion which can be used? I heard about  APT Medical Aesthetics that they provide various treatments, but didn't know more about them. Is there anyone who had heard about them? Please suggest me good treatment for solving my problem.
    • I have the same skin problem! But I put up, started working hard. I went to a maxi casino and won my first million, after which I had an operation, now there are no problems with girls and acne. Believe in yourself the main thing! Just have a peek at these guys!
