Birchbox November 2014

Recommended Posts

 

I got the Juice Beauty peel.  Glossy Box will be doing a Juice Beauty face cream as well.  

 

I find that their product really helps with the sun spots-age spots-liver spots that's inter-mingaling with my freckles...

 

Boyfriend thinks they look like freckles but I know better... they are clustered in groups of 2 to 3 and appear on the side of the cheek vs. the front.  

 

Juice Beauty products really work on lightening them!! 

 

It's a apple-ly month for the fall for me!

I decided not to select anything. I did not have a chance to pick in July and received an awesome box. I chose a sample in August, September and October and my boxes were really bad. Hopefully this month will be better and I get a box with no repeat products.

Thank you!  It must be my browser as it doesn't go anywhere.  Will try the phone.

 

The BB website does not like Explorer. I think I even saw someplace on the site where it said for best results use Firefox or Chrome.

I went with the cuppa cuppa. It was tough though because the curated box looked good too. Love getting candles in boxes (wasn't sure on the scent though) and love amika dry shampoo too, but I just bought the tinted klorane one so I ultimately went with the cuppa cuppa. I'm excited for my next box that's for sure!!!

This is my first time picking so am curious about how the rest of the box will shape up...   Gosh, what did the rest of your box look like?!!?!?

I went with the Not Soap Radio and now I'll spend the rest of the day thinking I should have gotten the candle.

I used the old e-mail to pick early this morning, because I knew I was going to be out & about for work all day. Picked the curated box for one account & the cuppa cuppa mask on the other two. 

 

Sounds like I might be alone in this, but all of my PYS boxes the last few months have been really awesome!

When I clicked the pick link in my email it took me to the BB site and this was at the very bottom of the page, under the selection box...

 

"Prefer surprises? We don't blame you! If you don't make a selection, you’ll receive our Giving-themed November box, tailored to your Beauty Profile."

This is the first time i picked the curated box, it is the most exciting thing for me! it has everything I want to try. I got the amika dry shampoo before and love it, was just thinking about how i can get more without anther account. the candle would be great, and wanted to try Dr. Jart and Dr. Lipp for a while now. i even resubscribed today just to get it.

I went with the peel.  I don't need another mascara and I don't use dry shampoo, so that made the curated box less attractive to me.  BB hair samples are almost always too small for me to get even one use out of so the hair mask was out.  I've been trying to work up the courage to use peels, and Juice Beauty products -- while they've been hit or miss for me -- have never irritated my skin.  So I figured that would be a good place to start.

 

Also, thanks to all the posts here, I saved my PYS e-mail this month (couldn't find last month's) so I will be ready next time around.

I couldn't find anything on the PYS or the curated box that I was particularly wanting, so decided give fate a whirl and see what comes up! :)

I picked the Royal Apothic mask. I had to stop myself from picking the Amika. I have two full size tubs of it. But it was so hard to say no to the cute travel size...

Did anyone who picked a sample or the curated box get a confirmation? I picked this morning and I haven't heard from Birchbox yet.

I just got the PYS email, and this time it doesn't say anything about, "It's cool if you don't want to pick anything; we'll choose a great box for you anyway." Weird. I mean, they have to send me something even if I don't pick, so I don't think that's an issue, but it looks like they are pushing this more this time around.

That's weird.  Mine had a paragraph at the bottom about how I didn't have to choose and they would still curate a special box for me, etc. etc.

I picked the Amika mask on one account and the body wash on the other.  I had planned to pick both masks but changed my mind at the last minute.  I totally forgot to check my inbox this morning so I was happy to see that everything was still in stock!

Mine definitely doesn't! I just checked again. That's extra weird!

Yup, I got my confirmation within 20 minutes or so of choosing the curated box.

 

It feels so weird already knowing exactly what will be in my box!

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
