Birchbox January 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

So the PYS this month is three lotions? Is this a punishment PYS? lol 

 

ETA I'm not really complaining, since I'm excited about the Naobay lotion (seems like it'll be good with eczema/sensitive skin), but this PYS seems out of character. Usually there are four options and a lot more variety!

I meant like... we don't want to listen to everyone complaining again this month, so let's offer three selections nobody could possibly be THAT excited about  :P  That rose gold eyeliner caused a real frenzy.

Tocca for me.  I've been really wanting to try it.  I have gotten a lot of the other items already so, for once,  it's kind of a no brainer for me!

I would have jumped on the Tocca except it's the only one Birchbox has ever sent me. In a pick-2 no less back when I USED to get good ones! ***cue the crying baby***

Hmm. I may end up picking the Tocca just to avoid the other two, since I hate the smell of the Naobay and hate rosemary too. A big snooze-fest, though!

Ok, now that I've looked at both curated boxes I do think I am going to go with Relax & Recharge. I've already received the Briogio from Ipsy, I'm not a fan of those tea flavors and I do not care for the scent of lavendar BUT the other three items interest me. I received the Manna Kadar in Lucky this month and I love it. I think the All of Me shade looks even prettier. And I am very interested in trying the other two items so hopefully I will be able to score this one. The only downer is the late shipping. Since I started PYS my boxes are 2-5 days later than was typical before PYS came along. The one month (last month) that I didn't pick a sample I got my box on the 7th. I think that's the earliest I've ever received a BB. And every time I type PYS I hear Michael Jackson singing PYT in my head (there I said it, now maybe it will stop  :P ).

 

Here's what's in the Relax & Recharge box:
Manna Kadar Lip Locked - All of Me
Perlier Body Butter - Lavender
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
When Travelmate Sheetmask
Briogio Don't Despair, Repair! 
Teapigs Tea Bags (Licorice & Peppermint, Chamomile Flowers)

I want the Rosemary and Mint lotion, because I love aromatherapy like stuff, and it just makes me feel good!

But I feel like the Tocca will have the best boxes. This is where having another subscription would come in handy.

I loved the Briogio from Ipsy but with only one box now I'm going to leave things up to chance.

Hmm.. Curated box or don't pick and which curated box? Maybe when the video comes out I can make a better decision.

 I agree with you total snooze fest.  The most boring ever.  Unfortunately as we have found out, picking one does not always avoid the others.  I usually end up with two of the pys items in my boxes.  Sometimes that's a good thing and sometimes it's not!

 I am going with the Relax Box. Although I don't really want more Briogio after getting it from impy, the other stuff looks interesting. I have this theory that the snooty selection this month is actually picking one of the curated boxes. I am basing this on the fact that there are only three sample choices and they are kind of boring.

It looks like this will be my month to pick up Briogio from the trade thread.  Come to me hair masks!! :smilehappyyes:

I'm not sure if I'll leave it up to chance or if I'll try for the R&R box.  I have the hair mask already and I love it. I'm almost out of it, so I'd like more!  I have the Perlier lotion in almond and I like the lotion but hate the scent.

 

But I'm not sure I love the idea of no surprises in my box.  

 

What to do, what to do...

I think I'll request the Tocca, since they never send me Tocca, and I've been wanting to try that scent. I need a little hand lotion for my office, too. These seem like things that most people who have been subscribed for a few months are likely to have got already, though. They sent me that Naobay lotion a while ago, and the smell was so gross, I just squeezed it out into a big bottle of body lotion and mixed it in. :)

@@lyncaf I've been subscribed for over a year and haven't gotten any Tocca hand lotion. I did get a perfume, but I didn't care for it because it was overly floral.

Gee what amazing choices! Not! For once I am not upset about not being able to choose the curated boxes, since I either have those samples or they do not excite me. I think I will go with the Tocca on my main, and leave the secondary up to chance. I noticed in the video, they did not even bother talking about how amazing any of the lotions were, they usually talk up a storm about the picks.

Not excited by any of this I'm afraid. :( I do NOT like rosemary, lavender, tea or grapefruit. Not the best luck this month. I'm also not interested in any Coola or the Lip Locked from the curated boxes.

 

Those that didn't like the Naobay scent, what does it smell like? I am kind of considering going with the Tocca if the grapefruit scent is minimal since I do like cucumber. I might just not pick a sample at all though.

I suck at describing scents. It made me think of wicker or bamboo furniture.  At first I hated it so much I thought of tossing it. But the smell disappears after a while, so I'm using it up.

Not feeling moved by any of the PYS choices, so I'll let birchbox choose for me. Show me some love BB!

Same here! Nothing exciting at all. Maybe we are all sub-boxed out from Black Friday and the holidays. I'm just going to take my chances and see what comes.
