Birchbox January 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I'm loving the travel tumbler! I want to get it but I'm a little worried about whether it's completely leakproof or not - I've had way too many accidents involving hot tea and public transit  :blush:

LOL I really want that sweatshirt, but I'm not sure if I want to pay that much just to have a laugh about it with myself.  I also really like the grippy socks.  I think I'm liking the theme and hoping that we get the first spoiler video sometime today.

I reserved the socks and sweatshirt. Time to treat myself! I figure I'd rather buy those items then have multiple Birchbox accounts. Excited for the spoiler video and sample choice!

I totally ordered the thermal tumbler to transport coffee to work. I've been meaning to get one b/c the coffee at the office is groooss. Thanks for helping me spend my money, Birchbox. :rolleyes:

So, I'm not really intersted in any of the PYS enough to bother with that.  However, I do kind of like the looks of the Tone it Up box.  

 

Here's what's in the Tone it Up box:
Coastal Scents Eyeshadow Palette - Latte
Aqua Reveal Satin Bright Soft Water Peel
Klorane Dry Shampoo
Whish Body Butter - Lavender
Coola ER Plus Radical Recovery

 

I would actually use everything in this box, so I'm seriously considering this one....

Ok, I ordered a sweatshirt because I had to. Hoping the sizes are normal. 

 

But I don't think I'm going to pick anything for samples/boxes this month! I have almost all of those things already. Will leave it up to the Birchbox Gods. :)

I agree. I've gotten almost all of those things before and not interested in having them again. I will also be leaving it up to chance.

PYS:

  • Naobay — Tried it!  It’s nice, but I don’t love it enough to want more.
  • Tocca — I love hand cream, but I’m not a fan of cucumber.
  • Essential Elements — I received the shower gel in this scent, and it’s nice, but like the Naobay, I don’t love it enough to pick it.

Birchbox plus:

  • Sweatshirt — Not my sort of thing.
  • Socks — I’m actually really tempted by these.  Love grippy-bottom socks!  I’m just not sure I’m willing to spend the money on them right now.  (Also, I just noticed that the Large only goes up to a size 10.  While my feet are 10s, I find that socks sized like this tend to be a teensy bit on the short side for me, so maybe it's a good thing I'm just meh on them!)
  • Travel mug — I wanted it until I saw the part where it’s hand wash only.  Uh, no dishwasher = no thanks.  I have one I love already that is handwash only, and I rarely use it because I don't like handwashing.  And it's one of my favorite mugs!

Guest Editor boxes — I’m actually seriously tempted by both of them!  I think it’s the Lip Locked in R&R and the eyeshadow in Tone It Up that are drawing me in, though, so I’ll pass on both.  I have well over a dozen new eyeshadows this month alone that I haven't even swatched yet between Secret Santa and my indie subs, and I don't use pressed shadows anymore anyway.  And while I do want that Lip Locked, I don't want it badly enough to pick this box for it.  I would definitely pick it if it was up for PYS, but on a guest editor box?  I'll spin the wheel and see what Birchbox sends me.

Huh.  I was thinking I wanted to hurry up and reactivate my second sub *now* to get in on the PYS window, but now that I’ve picked through the options, nah.  I can wait for a code.  I can also pass completely if there’s no code.

So excited about the choices this month! I'm going to choose the R&R box because I really liked the Manna Kadar sample last month and would love to try it in more colors. While Perlier isn't my favorite brand, lavender is one of my favorite fragrances, so I'm interested to see if they do it justice. I've sampled a few Balance Me products in the past that I liked, and need a hydrating eye cream, so bring it on! While you're at it, send me all the sheet masks! The Teapigs are adorable and tasty. The only meh is the Briogio, which I received from Ipsy a while ago. It seemed like a pretty standard conditioning hair mask, but it did get the job done, so I'm sure it will get used.

I may go with the Tocca hand cream and hope the coastal scents - latte palette is in my box!

If I bought myself a gift sub this month -- and have already received the welcome box -- will that one get a PYS (I know I don't get any BB Plus add ons, I'm just talking about the regular PYS)?

 

At any rate, I will take the Relax and Recharge box on my Ace account, I haven't tried any of that and it all looks good to me.  (Meanwhile, I've tried at least half the things in the other curated box.)

 

Then I have either one or two other choices, depending on the answer to my initial question.  I've already tried the Naobay and I find it OK but nothing spectacular.  I'm drowning in hand creams (I bought that L'Occitane holiday box) and body lotions right now, but I guess the body lotion sample will be small so maybe I'll choose the Essential Elements second.  Then Tocca third, if I get a third choice.

I think I will get one each of the curated boxes. I haven't tried nearly any of the samples and they both look pretty cool. The only bummer will be that I won't have any surprises.

This is exactly how I'm feeling!  I know I would really like the Tone it Up box, but I'm also torn because I like the mystery of not knowing what will be in the regular boxes.

    • My skin is dark in color. Is it possible to undergo skin whitening treatment? Is there any cream or lotion which can be used? I heard about  APT Medical Aesthetics that they provide various treatments, but didn't know more about them. Is there anyone who had heard about them? Please suggest me good treatment for solving my problem.
    • I have the same skin problem! But I put up, started working hard. I went to a maxi casino and won my first million, after which I had an operation, now there are no problems with girls and acne. Believe in yourself the main thing! Just have a peek at these guys!
    • are the best natural skin care products available in the market for the lowest price and good quality. All mitvana products are made with naturally available herbs, chemical free and also free from artificial colors.
    • Warm water, gentle cleanser, gently massage in a circular motion, then rinse with cool water. Once or twice a day, then exfoliate and mask once or twice a week. Easy peasy.
