Recommended Posts

Anyone know of any shop codes? Non-anniversary ones that is. I need to buy something lol.

I did not pick a sample and I am receiving box 50. I am not excited about the shampoo/conditioner. The other things I will try. I was really hoping to get a box with the Catherine Malandrino perfume or at least the Ageless body cream. I have not had a perfume sample since January. My last one before that was in January 2013. I do not know what I have to do to get some perfume in my box.   I am also a little sad I did not get the breath spray and the Supergoop hand cream. Maybe next month. I wish they would offer the BYOB service online, I would pay extra to be able to create a box every month.

My box, I am fairly pleased with it: So far I am not a fan of dry shampoos, they make my hair feel disgusting and look gray, but the reviews on the Amika seem to indicate that it smells good and is a bit different than most dry shampoos, so I'll give it a try and keep an open mind, I didn't choose a sample, but if I did it would have been the bronzer so I'm happy about that, I am interested in trying the Dr. Jart BB cream, I am very excited for the Nugg masks, and the super goop hand cream I could take or leave.

Box twins! I tried the Anika yesterday and I'm loving it! It doesn't have hold to it, so my hair doesn't feel sticky and gross after using it. The powder also seems finer and brushes out really nicely! Hope you like it too!

I think this is my 12th month with Birchbox. Are they still sending out anniversary gifts (like the red keychain), or did that stop a while ago?

I'm at month 15 and I never got an anniversary gift.

Pretty happy with my box. Wasn't impressed by the Benefit, but at least I can now finally say I got a Benefit product in my box :P The Amika smells amazing!!

So I got the black eyeliner in my box (didn't pick a sample) and wasn't that excited about it (I don't wear black liner, it's a really harsh look for me) - the box is pretty great otherwise.  I posted the picture of my box on Instagram and Noir Cosmetics commented and asked what about the liner I didn't like.  Thought it was really awesome of them to reach out in case there was a problem or issue with the liner!  Major points for Noir Cosmetics!

I used MOBILE20 yesterday.

You may be able to still review them.  I didn't realize you could review items for points for a number of months (how silly of me!) and when I found out, I was able to go back a month or two to review things.

Thank you!  I forgot to review one item for July and then once I saw this I tried and was able to.  :)

I'm also getting this box and I'm pretty excited.  It seems like all things I'll use except for the hand cream.  But I love bronzers, dry shampoos, bb creams, and face masks :)  I just really hope my box will get to my house before I leave for college on Wednesday but I kinda doubt it :(

The women's health card in your July box had the instructions. I'm sure a lot of people just tossed it. The fine print said within 30 days so I'm not sure if that deadline has passed.

Branding marketers, can we stop with the "body beauty CC cream?"  That Whish stuff is lotion.  It's lotion that had the added surprise of me later trying to figure out how I got glitter crap ALL OVER ME.

I just heard back! Wow, that was quick. They are re-sending me the card in the mail, so I can submit it for refund. She said you must have the card in order to get the refund. So, you may want to contact them about getting a new card, if you tossed yours @sarap  :)

Haha no problem. You have to sign up though. They actually emailed me to schedule a specific time for the facial.

It has glitter?  Ick.  I was hoping it would be a nice lotion to use after pedicures.

That's completely and utterly ridiculous.... And, quite frankly, unacceptable. Did they offer anything since you can't have a facial? Are you still able to attend without the facial?

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
