Birchbox April 2014 - SPOILERS

Recommended Posts

Well the thing I was most excited for this month was getting a duplicate sample of the Camille Beckman (so I could get compensated), only to realize I received hand therapy last and this is body butter. I've got the little box envy demon on my shoulder, lol. Love to try the brow gel though! 400

first month, that's kind of sad. :(

Definitely check out the swap thread, if you haven't already! I'm sure there will be other people doing full box swaps :)

My account still hasn't updated, I've never had that happen on the tenth. I did order the birchbox plus water bottle, could that be why? Anyone else on here order it?

So I literally wept when I saw my box. This is my second punishment box in a row and one of the products doesn't even remotely match my profile and another is for a brand that I reviewed HATING last month. Sumita eyeliner - whatever. it'll probably not be plum Paula's choice anti-aging hydrator - meh. Miss Jessie's Transitioner's Magic - this is a product for ladies with relaxed hair transitioning back to their natural curly hair. WTF, birchbox?! Gilchrist & Soames body gel - I completely slammed the shampoo and conditioner last month. So pissed this is in my box. Birchbox will be hearing from me this month. I never complain to them but this box is 50% wtf.

I think it's frustrating when I see a lot of you with multiple boxes getting dupes of something I just want one of and the fact that I have pms that is setting me off but I seriously can't stop crying. I guess my work and life stress is getting to me too. Ugh. Sorry about venting.

I was so excited about getting the davines until I looked at the box pics and they're packets, not the nice size bottle they sent last time. Awwww and I still didn't get the balm blush on either account. Maybe next month

I may be excited about it, depending! I really hate foil/card samples.

I'm getting Box 17 - and I'm pretty happy with it! I didn't get the CR eyeliner email so I'm curious which color I'll receive. I like the No. 4 products I've tried before, so hopefully these will be nice too!!400

Of course, I'm currently at 149 points, so I need to wait another month to order something so I'll get that 1 extra point for $20...argh!

If you are on the month-to-month sub, you can always cancel and then restart the sub immediately--it is a quick way to get ten points.

The 10th of the month has become one of my favorite days of the month.  I even have it as a recurring event on my agenda - Birchbox Reveal Day! - like it's some big monthly holiday - ha!

Lol!  It would be my luck that I would get charged twice for April!

 

...what about upgrading to the yearly Subscription?  Would that kick in the 110 points?

I got box 18 and 22 400400 Excited about the polish. Curious about the brow gel. Will probably trade the Davines and Shea Terra since I already have a big bottle of it along with the pure black soap powder form. Shower gel? Hmm... The other things are nice probably. They're just not the Balm!! ;)

That's the box I'm getting on my gift sub. I hope the eyeliner is in silver. I have 43 points on my original account. If I don't get a 6-item box, I'm going to unsub/resub for May to put it over 100 points.

Main account:  Box 41.

 

I received theBalm in last month's secondary box, but I'll either swap the backup or toss it in my makeup bag for backup.  I'm not sure about the Shea Terra (sensitive skin), but it will probably be easy to swap if I decide to not risk problems.  Everything else...  Not excited, but not upset (funny thing:  I *just( took color treated off my hair profile because it's been six months since I got highlights, and I haven't quite gotten around to getting them redone.  Maybe this is the universe's way of telling me to go ahead and get them again!).  Definitely looking forward to this!

 

Secondary account:  Box 32.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eye Pencil Buy Color Club Gala's Gems Collection Buy Keims Cleanshine Energizing Shampoo Buy KIND Healthy Grain Bars Buy nyakioâ„¢ Kenyan Coffee Face Polish Buy nyakioâ„¢ Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub Buy nyakioâ„¢ Hydrating Face Oil With Kola Nut Buy   I hope the polishes are different colors!  While I lovelovelove eyeliner pencils, I have a feeling this is going to be black, which I hate.  I already have a silver one.  But, hey, swap stash.  More shampoo!  Yay!  I'm trying to see how long I can go without buying it and just using my sample/subscription box stash.  It's been a very, *very* long time.  Like probably two years at this point.  I love faciial oil, so I'm thrilled to get another one to try.  And seven items!  Of course, this is the box that needs eighty to hit an even hundred.  I may or may not keep this one another month or two.  Still trying to decide.

 

So, wow, although I have a strong history with dupes between boxes within a single month, I'm only getting one same-month dupe in the nail polish, and maybe they will be different, and maybe I can swap!  And one month-to-month dupe, which is a nice item to get a dupe of!  This was a great month to go for two boxes for me.

EEEEEEEE!!!   I got box 38!   8 items, and it looks like I can review all of them!  I was kind of hoping for the Balm, and those samples are probably really small but hey, 80 points!

I unsubbed/resubbed on my month-to-month account around the 19th of March. I have no clicky truck, no shipping e-mail, and no April box page loaded.

    • You got a platform right here! 
    • Hello Everyone, I am fascinated by makeup that I keep on watching them, but now I am thinking to build a platform where I can get connected to popular freelance artists and individuals who are seeking for help. Please can someone guide me what should I do about it? Thanks 
    • True.!! There is multi demand of herbal products now-a-days.!!
    • As the weather starting to changed the styling and other things related to human being to changing as the weather progressing to wards sping and wather same as the hair style also changing according to it...
    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
