Birchbox November 2014

Recommended Posts

It's Birchbox Day today!

I didn't pick (everything was sold out). I had received an Everygirl box earlier, and DID receive the body wash in my box, so curated boxes must not count towards your "things already received'"

My box is https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/november-2015/november-2014-bb21

Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod in Firecracker flavor (aka spicy, Pop Rocks-infused dark chocolate, or as my bf said, "I like my chocolate with spice and loud!")

MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick: This is a card sample, to which I say boooooooooo why even bother?!

RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer - RUFFIAN Naked: I <3 nude polishes, and this looks like a dupe of one of my favorite discontinued Juleps. Much smaller than I expected though.

dr. brandt® pores no more® vacuum cleaner™: I'll use it. I hear a lot of people like it.

amika Nourishing Mask: I have two giant tubs of this from the Beauty Brands liter sale. Love it, either I'll use this for traveling or I'll gift it.

Not Soap, Radio Body Wash: Already have it, like it but don't love it.

Since its your first one you can technically get any box. You haven't yet received any samples to rule out, just yet. Check out the MUT Birchbox FAQ if you haven't already.

Thanks for answering! I'm just going BB crazy waiting on my box! I have read the faq section; it was actually more helpful than the BB site. Lol. I am so excited to get my box!!!! I've been stalking MUT for weeks to decide which boxes to use my budget on and now I can't wait to get them!!!! I chose BB and Ipsy plus I think I will order an additional BB for my Mom. Thank you to all the MUT Ladies for taking the time to post real opinions to this site!

My box shipped despite the "late" payment! It says it should be here on the 19th. I really hope it has the mask.

That's one reason I didn't pick it.  Sounds like something that I would love, but I have thick, waist-length hair.  BB hair samples are usually not enough for even one use for me.  I should get a couple of uses out of the Juice Beauty peel, though.

For some reason I was thinking the Amika Hair Mask would be as big at the body wash I got in my box. We'll see how long it will last.  :unsure: 

 

I never paid attention before but does anyone know if the items they photograph for the Pick Your Sample are the actual sample size versions or are they the full size versions in the pictures?

It depends.  The ModelCo lipstick from last month was definitely full sized.  But the Juice Beauty peel container looks nothing like the picture in the PYS e-mail (shows a small jar, but I actually got a small tube instead).

After a six month hiatus, I decided to resubscribe since all of the boxes look pretty good! I'm really hoping for the box with the Eyeko and Tocca perfume.

Yes, box pages should load tomorrow.  So excited to see what I'm getting.

 

I received the ModelCo lipstick in Kitty last month (I think it was the Pick your Choice & that was my pick.)  I have been loving that lipstick and wearing it every day.

 

Edit:  spelling (OR lack of correct spelling)

Still in Indiana. 

Apparently my Birchbox really was drunk and needed to rest, before continuing travels, lol.

I got my box yesterday:

 

Rusk texture finishing spray

Eyeko Fat eye stick in satin taupe

Camille Beckman Imperial Repair hand therapy in lemongrass & grapefruit

Not Soap, Radio Joy Inducing body wash (my pick)

MAKE lipstick & primer (a card)

 

Except for the MAKE card sample (I hate these more than foils), I'm pretty happy with my box!

For anyone who received a Laura Mercier eye pencil, was your pencil really dried out.  Mine was dried up a lot and definitely didn't fit the hole by a lot.

I cannot believe they are sending out cards for the MAKE lipstick and primer! I despise them. I got a MAKE lipstick about a year ago in my BB and it was actually a mini little lipstick. I'd peeved if it was a card. Really BIrchbox??

I finally gave in and signed up for a second sub. HA. I keep trying other subs to replace Ipsy (and crawling back to Ipsy) and they just don't measure up. I'll be true to you now, BB

How many of you out there still only have a non-clicky truck here on the 9th of the month? This seems really odd to me. It is my main account and I picked the cuppa cuppa. I cannot wait to see my boxes this month.

I signed up for a second one yesterday, too.  Referred myself and got 50 points on my main account, plus used BBRED100 on the new account for 100 extra points there.  The plan is to keep one account full of points in reserve in case a cool limited edition set comes out.

That's what I intend to do, too, I think! I used my points today combined with a code and got the Homespun box and a pick 2 for $2! Or I might save up points on my main box for Limited Edition boxes and special things for me, and points on the 2nd sub for next year's Secret Santa. :)

My account is still showing October. I am thinking my box will not update in the morning. This happened last month too.

SO I have an annual account. Can I add a monthly to it? Or do I need to use a diff email address?

Each account has to have a different e-mail address.

I picked the cuppa on my main account and I still don't have tracking info either. My second box is in New Jersey.

 

I can't wait for boxes to load! The last two months they've updated on the night of the 9th, so I hope they upload tonight!!

    • 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!
