Exact same box on both subs with radically different profiles? WTF, BotchBox?

 

...derp. It just hadn't updated the second sub box yet. My bad.

 


So, it looks to me like those of us who were able to pick our sample with the email link are getting what we chose but those who had to contact CS are not.  My box shows I'll be getting the Relic polish, which is the color I picked through the email and I also got a confirmation email for it the next day.  I am excited for my box this month,  it's box 21.  I'll be getting Relic, the remover pads, BP mask, Laqa, Suki cleanser, and Balance Me eye cream.  I'm really hoping the Laqa will be purple, I've been dying to get one in my box for a couple months now and almost bought one with points a couple weeks ago.  I think this will probably be the first box I've ever gotten where I will actually use everything!
 
I had to email, and my polish is showing on my July box page. Let's hope it actually arrives.

Still no box update or clicky truck!

Sorry you have the same issue I do, but glad it's not just me! Margarita beach party time while we wait! Lol.

Wait, I'm sorry to ask again but I don't have the time to look through the thread. I didn't email CS yet, got an email to pick a sample, and the emailed me with an "oops sorry!" email: "Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that a few customers did not receive the confirmed sample choice in their July box. Don't fret - your correct sample choice will be on its way to you shortly! "

 

Was it clarified if we're getting it shipped separately and just won't be able to review it, or for a future box? ;_; Sorry, please inform me--

Punishment boxes, all of them. At least I got my reserved nail polish and the BP mask. I just wanted one box with any number of the awesome items this month, Harvey Prince lotion, Suki, Posiebalm, skyn...now I'm probably going to buy the Harvey Prince lotion, at least when they have another 20% code. Grr so frustrated and feeling dumb that I opened my other two accounts for all the awesome products this month that I didn't get.

@@Kelly Silva, well seems like a lot of people want to try that peeling mask!! Personally, I am hoping it's awesome!! I know also a few people are looking for that body wash too, check the trade threads :P

The unprompted follow up email wasn't clear. I would imagine it'd arrive separately as it'd be:

1) Too difficult to flag boxes to add one more item in

2) Many boxes may already be on their journey

3) Boxes already arrived like mine (and I got the email)

 

I did notice on my outer cardboard print that said This package confirms to 49 CFR 173.4. I haven't looked it up, but guess it's about nail polish. My best guess is that's also why they started shipping early because it had to go ground.

Hmmm, so there's no way I can only use a specific amount of points right? Like say I just want to use $30 worth of points instead of the entire $60 worth I have, not possible?

Nope, only way is to cash out $30 worth onto gift cards, and use them that way.

Silly birchbox!! Be like Memebox where I can decide how many points I wanna use / get rid of your weird system that forces me to blow them all if the total doesn't match the exact number in my cart.

On a related topic about points, if my account has 250 points am I able to buy a $25 gift card?

no, points can only be used in increments of 100 ($10)

Annoying, but there is a bright side: if you cash out points into gift cards for a total of more than $35, you can order the mystery sample pack! :)

Nope, you can only spend points in increments of 100. However, you can buy two $10 gift cards. You will have to add two individual $10 gift cards (but they can have the same info) as you can't just increase the quantity of gift cards once you've added one to your cart, though.

The way around that is to cash out $30 in gift cards and then leave the other $30 as points in your account. It's tedious, but at least you can control how much you're using in points! :)

 

EDIT: Hahaha, I see someone has already beat me to it!

Just FYI, I emailed BB to ask about duplicates since the polishes I'm going to be receiving won't be a part of my 'box history.' She said she's not sure if they'll be sending Ruffians again but if they do there's no way to mark my account to show I already got them. But did say to just email them if that happens & they'll take care of it.

 

So...basically, we could get dupes but I'm guessing we'll get points for it.

I'm happy with both of my boxes -- a good mix of products and only one dupe (the Naobay lotion). But man, that 100% Pure body wash is a huuuuge bummer. Smells so beautiful, no lather, doesn't get you clean. Womp womp.

Muahaha, I may have just done that! 

 

Also, Christmas on a cracker, the site is SO SLOW.

You guys I feel like I won the BB lottery!  When my boxes updated I was so excited.  On my annual sub it looks like I am getting the polish I reserved (granted it has yet to show up and this is BB so it could change) but I also got the Poisie balm!

post-84001-0-74955400-1405033861_thumb.png

I am not very excited about the Caudalie but that from that box the only sample I am not interested in!

 

For my Acct I have had since March

This box is more meh to me.  I do not like Whish, the divine oil or St Tropez.  Hoping the CS Revealed 2 is in something other than sunset but happy I got my polish and a 6 items box!  Reviewing for points, going to cancel and resub and cash my points onto a GC!

 

Sorry for all those ladies that got lackluster boxes, did not get what you selected etc.  I have been there and know how it feels.  Happy almost Friday!

Box finally updated. I'm at least getting the sample I signed up for, but I'm also getting lotion for the third month in a row, and not even the hello lotion grrr.

Box 45

 

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain
Naobay Body Radiance Lotion
Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel
Ofra Universal Eyebrow Pencil
100% Pure Gingerade Shower Gel (Honey Cream Wash)

 

Infinite sadness.  :(  The only thing I'm looking forward to is the stain that I reserved.  I already received the Ofra last month from Ipsy.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
