Birchbox November 2014

Recommended Posts

So question:  Did some new article come out about animal testing or something? Because it seems like for the last week or so Birchbox's Facebook page has been spammed with comments about how they should stop testing their products on animals (even though Birchbox is more of a distributor...). 

 

Yes it was called "What annoys me about Birchbox" by Melanie Curtin on Huffington Post. Basically it's just her frustration that BB isn't what she wants it to be, namely 100% cruelty free products in every box.  At the end she tells everyone to demand the change on BB's facebook page.  I like seeing the rabbit logo on products but I am not going to boycot BB.

Finally got a notice late last night that my box shipped on the 6th (it wasn't supposed to ship til the 10th). I didn't PYS but I did get a Plus item, the candle. 

 

I wish BB would just reveal what boxes we are getting. If people are already getting boxes in the mail, there really is no reason to keep them secret. Just my little rant for the day. :D

Does birchbox ever do anything for your birthday month? I've never had my birthday listed but I thought I read somewhere that they do something extra for your birthday?

I received my box today.  Blahh, definitely underwhelmed.  This was the last box in my annual sub on my primary account.  I'm going to stop getting boxes on this account since my annual is done now.  My secondary month-month account box is always so much better.   I'm excited for the Chuao!

@ Yeah, when I was looking at the box I was thinking how the contents aren't actually bad but just not for me, you know?  Not interested in the juice beauty or shine serum, already have makeup remover I love, ehh more eyeliner (at least it's not black :))

Funny things are going on with shipping. No clicky truck still on main account, and I never received an email saying box was shipped on my secondary. It is now in Indiana according to Newgistics. Has BB got too much on their plate now?

I'm totally underwhelmed as well. I chose the Not Soap Radio Bodywash as my PYS and it seems all of the boxes with that in it were wack. I don't know why I chose that bodywash anyway because I have eczema and can only use very moisturizing, for sensitive skin bodywash, but I guess I heard so many people on here raving about it. Anyway, my box included: 

  • Not Soap Radio Bodywash
  • Make Eye Makeup remover
  • Hello Shampoo
  • Hello Conditioner
  • Mirenesse Mascara 24-hour
  • Chuao Firecracker Chocopod

I don't want NONE of this stuff. Thinking back, I wish I would've chosen the Cuppa Cuppa Mask Treatment.

Whoa, that's a pretty big sample of the Tocca perfume. Isn't that a 0.17 oz rollerball? I didn't pick any samples either, so I hope mine is as good as yours =)

I thought it was the roller ball when I first opened it, but it was actually a spray when I opened it. I have one of the roller balls, but I can't find it right now to compare. I think they're the same size though!

Not to my knowledge.  Last month was my birthday and nothing was different.  I think Julep gives you extra Jules, and Ulta and Sephora give you various things (small samples or points or both).

Oh I really want 43! *crosses fingers* I'd love to try everything in the box (especially the DevaCurl) except the lotion, but I would deal.

Thanks, I appreciate the answer. It is nice to not always feel like your are invisible on here. ;)

Anyone notice the website changed?  Popsugar changed their website and their world blew up.  Birchbox changed their website and it's barely noticeable.

 

EDIT: i guess it's only the "BOX" section. I was on there ...

    • Our skin is a very sensitive organ of the body. Every day it goes through environment changes, temperature fluctuations, pollution, and dirt. While tackling with all of them, it has a great responsibility to secrete oils and sweat to protect itself from the outside world and maintain the body temperature. Basically, at the end of the day it not only gets exhausted, but goes into a dire need of nutrients to replenish its energy. A chemical product may give your skin instant glow, but it becomes a crutch. It makes our skin dependent upon chemical based products so much that if the product is not used, the skin starts falling into the worst conditions like dryness, acne, excess oils etc. Hence, plant based skin care brands are emerging to bring you a better option that will replenish all the natural oils and nutrients of your skin and make it naturally healthy. The natural and plant-based skin care products do not have harmful toxins that your body might intake through the epidermis’ habit of absorbing whatever is applied on it. A product like – the rejuvenator dry oil emulsion is made only of natural ingredients like apple stem cell, natural oils and herbs. After a long day, they provide your skin hydration, phytonutrients, and boost cell protection and collagen. Intake of these products through the skin is completely safe because they share the same biological chemistry as our bodies and blend in.

    • I suppose it’s an indication of little I used to think about sleep that it never occurred to me my sleeping position was in anyway abnormal. I fall asleep on my right hand side then often sleep on my stomach, head to one side if I wake up during the night. Turns out only about 7% of the population do this.   But is there a ‘best side’ to sleep on? The jury seems to be out but there are pros and cons to each sleeping position   If you sleep on your back (which I rarely do) it’s apparently good for your spine and preventing acid reflux but you are more likely to snore. On the other hand it may “maintain perky breasts” according to this article on the CNN website. (Probably not if you’ve had a couple of kids, I’d suggest)   Sleeping on your side – right or left – apparently makes it easier to breathe and helps to avoid heartburn and acid reflux. It also tends to be the most comfortable position if you’re pregnant, especially with a body pillow. However curling up in a foetal position is not good for your neck or spine.   Some experts say you’re better to sleep on your right hand side if you have a cardiac condition as it puts less stress on the heart. On the other hand sleeping on your left may be better for your liver and kidneys.   Sleeping on your front can put strain on your neck though this can be alleviated if you only have one or no pillows. (According to the Better Sleep Council this position makes me brash, outgoing, and very uncomfortable with criticism!)   On the other hand a recent survey came up with the finding that sleeping on the left of the bed (which I invariably do) makes you more cheerful and positive – but not as financially well off as those who sleep on the right. According to the ... er... Daily Mail.   In the absence of any consensus it seems to me that there’s no reason to change your sleeping position if you sleep well or haven’t been advised to alter it by your doctor. On the other hand if you sleep badly – or snore loudly – it could be worth trying to make a change.    So what are you – a side, a back or a stomach sleeper and have you ever managed to change the way you sleep? Read more information about the best mattress for sleeping. Good luck!
