Birchbox January 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

So the cheat has to be wrong like I mentioned, because it's showing like three things I've already received. 

 

But my box is now loading in the app, and is showing the same thing.

 

But that can't be right, right? I've received those things before so I can't get them again...I hope!

I'm in the same boat...I have 2 products I already received (and didn't like either of them!) 

 

Really hoping it changes :(

My box uploaded yesterday and it's a snooze. I got:

 

- nelson j healing mask - if i get one more hair mask, i'll scream.

- my pys, the rosemary body lotion. i chose it b/c i don't know what rosemary smells like

- mirenesse lip rouge - let's see how this works out

- harvey prince hello liquid loofah - if i get one more harvey prince item i will scream. i got the perfume sample, the shampoo, the conditioner, and now the bodywash. i also got ageless in my pick two yesterday. stop trying to force me to like this brand birchbox!

- christian siriano perfume - i liked his shoes at payless, but let's see how his perfume smells.

This is what the cheat is showing for my box:

 

LAFresh nail polish remover wipes
100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara
Grand Central Beauty S.M.A.R.T. Skin Perfecting™ Polisher
Under Armour Braided Mini Headbands - 3 Pack
Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Conditioner
 
I'm really meh about all of the potential products.  Polish wipes is boring, I have tons of mascara, don't have high hopes for the skin polisher, I guess I can toss the headband on my treadmill, and I got the dry conditioner last February.  
 
I don't know what I was hoping to get in BB, but I'm wondering if I'm getting burnt out with them because my boxes seems to be really skin and hair care heavy.

My R+ R box showed up this morning! Pretty happy with it (I had forgotten what was in it, haha).

Always happy to get tea <3

Excited about the sheet mask...these are overpriced but I am so happy to try it. 

The body butter doesn't smell great but is nice and thick, will be great for my feet and elbows and hands!

I've used the Briogeo before and liked it, always need a hair mask.

I am an eye cream fiend and this one is a good size, happy about it!

I love the Manna Kadar...I wear Lucky all the time and this is a pretty shade, too, a bit darker than Lucky.

 

 

Overall,a good box :)

 

Do you know specifically what shade you got in the Manna Kadar Lip Locked? i'm supposed to be getting it as well.

Has anyone else's Mirenesse's Lip Rouge come with the applicator looking kinda tacky, like its either been used before or just poorly made? I haven't used it, but I'm afraid to put it up for swap because I don't want people thinking they got a used product. I'll try to attach a picture below.

Meh.  I'm not super excited about this month.  I didn't do PYS (missed the email in all the holiday stuff going on), so it was just luck of the draw.  My last several boxes have been pretty good, so I can't complain really.  I'm a little tired of CC and BB creams every month though.

 

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

Sumita Brow Pencil

SuperGoop! Daily Correct CC cream

Tocca hand cream

Harvey Prince Hello liquid loofah

 

I have a clicky truck, but the tracking isn't valid yet.

The shade is All of Me and it's on the card so I'm assuming all will be getting this shade.

I got mine as a gift and it looks like that, but the formula is just a different kind of formula so I don't think there's anything wrong with it. The shape of the applicator is just different than most, but I found it works really well and is nice!

I chose Tocca on my main, and nothing on my secondary. I am getting the same box as you on secondary and the main is only showing 4 products so far. I hope a 5th product shows up!

 

Box twins, I'm so disappointed with this month. Guess you can't win them all. :[

For those whose box was showing samples they had previously gotten. On my laptop via the cheat it still shows the wrong box, but I just looked on the phone app and the box has totally changed. The new box has no repeats and my PYS is there.I hope this one is what I am getting.

New box on app:

Sumita brow pencil

Rosemary lotion- my PYS

Sweet science invisible daily tint spf 35

when sheet mask

Key west facial cleanser

Thanks for responding. What a bummer. I'm so sick of pale pinkish toned lipglosses and lipsticks. I always look like a clown in them. Why is that the only color they send out???!

I usually get reds (which I do wear, but not terribly often).  THis one isn't as light as the last one though! You might be able to wear it! 

 

I took a swatch on my hand and one on my lips, so you can see if maybe the color will work for you. :)

I got my box today.  While its not my favorite because it has Shampoo and Conditioner, I am happy with the product sizes.  At least these two items would look good in a gift basket that I make for someone. 

 

I judge a box on whether I can use the contents or share the contents without embarrassment.  ;)

Okay my app is showing the exact same contents as yours haha! I didn't pick a sample though so mine could have been anything.

Interesting! My box completely changed (for the better!). Now I'm getting the brow pencil (yay!), rosemary lotion, Key West face wash, When sheet mask, and Sweet Science tint. I am actually looking forward to ALL of the products!

Funny, I'd LOVE to get the pinkish toned lipglosses and lipstick but I tend to get deep red, dark purple or coral/red which I look clownish in! :)

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
