Birchbox January 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I actually really like both the curated boxes, I'm kind of sad I had to cancel birchbox due to financial reasons.  After 33 months, it was time to part ways.  I will definitely miss it though..

The Naobay changes a lot on me depending on what my body chemistry is doing that day.  I either get lemon zest or cardboard.  The cardboard is not so nice!

 

It was cardboard on me!

Eh, I think I'll end up going with the Tone It Up box for one box and leave the other up to chance. Although, I really wouldn't be disappointed leaving them both up to chance... that tends to work well on my profiles. 

 

Usually I would run head first towards the Tocca, but I have about 5 deluxe tocca hand creams (including Cleo) and one full size thanks to my amazing Secret Santa. These will last me at least a year!

I think for me it's the Tone It Up box on one account and leaving it to chance on the other. None of the lotion PYS options appeal to me. Where are the makeup samples? I know BB is skincare heavy, but I really am most interested in the beauty products.

I traded for the rosemary peppermint body wash and LOVED it. I wouldn't mind one of those lotions if I decide not to get the curated boxes.

Hmmmm. I'm leaning towards the R&R box. I don't have anything similar to that MK lippie, I love those sheet-style masks, and I've been wanting to try a new eye cream. I'm not really excited about a body butter or the hair mask, but will still be pleased to get them. As for the tea, my sister works for David's Tea so I kind of have access to all the tea I could ever want, but it's not like it'll go to waste.

 

Definitely would have considered the sweatshirt, but it's already sold out :/

Does anyone know if I will get to PYS if I cancelled my sub? I played the cancel and resub game several times last month and I am actually paid up until Feb or March. I'd have to look at my cheat sheet to know for sure and I'm too lazy to get up and look, but I digress.

 

My account is technically cancelled right now while I think about subbing for an annual box or resub with a code or maybe not pick up the second box again. I just can't decide at the moment. Anyway...I have a Jan box coming but don't know if I'll be able to PYS. Which means I'll have to decide between the two curated boxes. :/

I am having trouble deciding if I should pick the Rosemary lotion or leave it up to chance. If the Rosemary lotion was a hand cream I would definetly pick it, but am afraid it won't be a heavy enough lotion for my hands. A friend told me Rosemary is supposed to be good for Raynauds and I need all the help I can get right now.

wow after seeing the choices this month I can happily cancel  :) I'm trying to save more money and I've either tried the samples and wasn't wowed by them or it's stuff I won't use.  I figure I'll hit up the trade forum if I see anything I really want.

Tocca for me! I just got the Naobay as part of my mystery pack yesterday. I'm a tall woman with dry skin, and I need a lot of lotion, so I'm not mad at these options. :)

Not feeling any of the PYS this month. I just cancelled my 2nd sub, but I'll probably just not pick anything on my main sub and be surprised.

Not really excited by the choices. I might pick the Rosemary lotion. The curated boxes are tempting this month but it is boring to pick the whole box and know exactly what I'm getting.

What are the differences between body lotions and hand creams, generally?  I feel like thanks to Birchbox I have a ton of nicely scented hand creams that I will never get through and was wondering if I could use them elsewhere.

I find hand creams to be thicker than most body lotions.  I definitely use them in place of body lotion when I need some extra moisture.

    • I want to share useful information in my opinion. Finally, in Tokyo, legalized gambling in casinos and now tokyo casinos are helping the country's economy. Also, in order to alleviate the fear of gambling addiction, a law was introduced obliging to pay 53$ per entry. I wonder what this will all lead, but if you look at it in the face of it, then this raises the country's economy to a new level, and this can be done in many countries in which they are ready to take the same measures.
