Birchbox July 2014 - Spoilers!

Recommended Posts

What does your profile say about fragrance? I have also received the other two Harvey's in the last few months too so I figured they wouldn't send me this one since I have please don't send so much fragrance checked on my profile.

 

On the bright side. - I know we will love the ruffians and they are worth more than the box :-)

I have the 'no more than 6 a year' checked...so I guess I'm halfway there now!

I'm getting box 22 (my lucky number!). My dream box was 31 because I wanted the posiebalm and the hello body cream, but 22 was my second favorite! I'm excited to try the peel and the Laqa.

I'm also getting 22, but I'm admittedly not as excited.  I REALLY wanted box 16 because I SO wanted the posiebalm. I also literally just traded with someone last week for the Laqa in coral and I would bet my left arm that I get the Laqa in coral in my box.  BOO.

 

And I'm really, REALLY over Number 4.  Seriously. Both my husband and I got it in our boxes last month and now MORE number 4 stuff.  But I should be thankful I didnt get any BB cream this month.

My box is showing on my app but not on the website.  So, I don't know if I'm getting what it says I'm getting.

 

Per the app:

 

Relic  -Yay

Ruffian remover wipe-meh

Naobay lotion-meh

Real Chemistry  3 minute peel-scared to try

BP Hair mask- Yay

Benefit Posibalm-Yay

 

So half the box I'm stoked about.

Woke up this morning to find a tracking email and one of the two boxes I was hoping for waiting for me.  Good morning indeed!  Anyone know what shades are in the Revealed 2 sample?

 

There were so many items I wanted this month that it would have been hard to disappoint me :)  Hopefully the ones I didn't get, I'll get next month!  This month has made me really contemplate signing up for a second box, but I'm probably moving in a couple months so I don't want too many addresses to switch.

Here are my two boxes:

I'm excited to get the two Ruffian polishes.  I really liked the blue one in the BB Mermaid kit and the shades pictured on my acct look nice and wearable!  I'm ok with the other samples except the Supergoop.  I don't need/use bb and cc creams and I manage to get loads from sub boxes.  I wish I'd gotten a Posiebalm - I'd love to try before possibly buying.

Looks like I'm getting box 21 with the Relic polish I chose, and then they said I wasn't getting because of a "billing error" blah blah blah... And my tracking shows I should get it today!! Hoping it comes in before I have to leave for work!

Le sigh. On the account I have email from CS stating I'll get Rosary, I ended up with box 21:

 

 

I'm utterly uninterested in anything in this box. I'm going to email just to register my displeasure with this box since I had in fact come around on Rosary and was actively looking forward to it. I probably wouldn't be annoyed if CS hadn't confirmed I would get it.

 

On the up side, I'm supposed to get the mythical box 7 on my main account! I'll believe it when I actually get it, though.

Finally, 4 different boxes!! No dupes.

 

But seriously, Revealed 2 sample gtfo out of 3 of my boxes. I was already disappointed last month that it didn't have any of the shades I actually wanted and these are all exactly the same. On the bright side, now I've had it on all 4 accounts and don't have to worry about getting it again.

 

Same goes for the Whish shave cream. At least change up the scent and I wouldn't mind getting more.

:(  :(  :( I've never been so disappointed with birchbox. Getting 17 and 48.

Neither of these have the Ruffian that I reserved and got CS confirmation that I was going to receive them...and one of them is my annual sub.  I'm also pretty unhappy with the other products.  I feel like they don't really fit my profile at all.

 

1. Eye cream - Don't have anti-aging stuff or dark circles listed in my profile

2. Peel - I don't like peels, and I have sensitive skin

3. No. 4 - I don't dye my hair or use a hair dryer...and this is in my profile

4. Caudalie - the packet is a joke and looks like one of the free samples you get from Sephora

5. Vasanti - this could be ok

6. St Tropez - I am medium toned what the eff do I need anti-aging tanning stuff for  

7. CS sample - got on other account, don't wear neutrals

8. CR liner - I have way too many eyeliners but at least I can trade this

 

Going to email CS...after my morning meeting  <_<

Coming in to join the additional complaining about reserving a ruffian polish and not getting one.

 

To rub things in my face some more, I hate hair products and I've been getting a non-stop barrage of them. Including all the mini-samples, I've literally received 7 over the last 5 boxes. There is going to be some snippiness going on.

It seems like my favorite boxes are always the boxes that DONT have hair products in them. I don't even know if its a psychological thing at this point or what.

UGH! I thought I signed up for a Ruffian in Ambrosia and a lip stain in Sugar but I was part of the wonky "last one you pick you get for all" group. Definitely headed to the swaps.

If it helps, it is a balm so it goes on pretty sheer--you can build it up if you want, but I am a professor and wore it and found it perfectly work appropriate.

I don't know what I will do if I don't get a polish (aside from emailing them expressing my frustration). I've been extremely over birchbox as of recently and the only reason I came back for July was the polish. If I had known it wouldnt be "guaranteed" I would have decided differently.

Right. At this point I'd just rather not get hair care products than get more samples. I am honestly not going to buy any and they're just wasting their and my time. I have this giant box of hair stuff I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with. Guess it's time to visit the trade thread.
