Birchbox February 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

So, this is weird. I used the cheat earlier in the week to see the box I was getting. Just now I opened the app and it shows me getting a completely different box (and of course one that is awful compared to what the website cheat is showing me).

Anyone have that happen?

I guess I am getting nervous. Last month my box was HERE by this time last month and this month as of today, the 7th, it is still showing January's info and no cheat working yet. I won't care as long as it is a great box!

I can't remember what I was supposed to get, but I ended up getting supergoop cc cream, whish body butter, eyeliner, aquareveal face peel, and hair oil. It was a good box, but I had gotten myself so excited for the other box that I was a little upset!

1st  Box -

Eyeko Skinny eyeliner
Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss
Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Shower Gel
Obliphica Treatment Hair Serum (Hairkop)
BEEKind Conditioner

 

2nd box -

Harvey Prince - Hello
Perlier - Intensive Nurturing Body Balm
Laura Geller Beauty GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara (my PYS)
Dear Clark, Ressurecting Wash
Dear Clark, Ressurecting Rinse

 

All around not very good, but Hairkop and Gilchrist and Soames in one box? Kind of couldn't get any worse since I already received Lord & Berry eye pencil and the regular Gilchrist & Soames body wash in that accounts first box (only on it's third month).

Initial review of the RTR box:

 

Fekkai dry shampoo- nice. Not the best I've ever used, but has a nice strong spray and smells good. Great size.

 

The balm lip gloss- probably not the shade I would buy for myself, but the gloss it self is smooth and pigmented

 

Summits eyeliner - big disappointment. I was excited for a navy liner, but this is patchy and hard to use. Bummer.

 

Body wash- smells nice and lathers well. Nothing unique.

 

face scrub- again smells nice and exfoliates but nothing unique.

 

Aside from the eyeliner I will use everything but this wasn't a super high value or "exciting" box.

I've found that a good sharpening will straighten the Sumita liners out. The tips get somewhat dry if they're stored too long and getting the dry layer off has worked for me every time. I've gotten 4 Sumita colors in my Birchboxes and bought 2 of the mini sets. Edited by PeridotCricket

My boxes usually go TN ➡ TX ➡ Arkansas, which is some what reasonable. Every once in awhile they visit IN. This month, as always, they started their trip in TN and are now inexplicably partying on the Jersey Shore.....

 I don't know my box number, but I am supposed to get the Balm lipgloss and Beauty Blender!! Do they send the whole BFF kit? Or is it just the B Blender alone with no cleaner? I'm so excited to be getting this.

 

  My other three items are blemish cleanser, body wash and conditioner and will go into the growing CS stash.

I'm using this link: https://www.birchbox.com/me/boxes/women/2015/02

Hope that helps   :)

 

Posting this cheat link again for Ineri.  I actually just remembered how to click on the previous month's box link and change to 2015/02. I'd gotten so many editor boxes in a row I'd totally forgotten how to do this.

Has anyone who is getting the Eyeko liner actually received their box yet? I am curious if they are sending out different colors or just black.

 

I've already received black in the box I am getting (worst box) so if I get it again, I will be complaining. It is the only good thing in that box so I hope it is a good color, like dark brown or dark plum.

I got my box today and it included one Beautyblender and a mini solid cleaner!

Urgh my box is really quite awful this month, which is really the first month in a long time that I don't like so I guess I shouldn't complain. I'm getting:

 

Juice Beauty Blemish cleanser (uh I never get acne, nor do I have it checked on my profile, so I'll be giving this to my mom.)

 

Eyeko eyliner (Don't use liquid liners, and I already have a bunch of these.)

 

BeeKind Body Lotion (I almost choose this a couple months ago when it was offered as a sample choice so I'm happy to get this.)

 

Marcelle makeup remover (If I had picked a sample this month, this is what I would have picked so I'm happy about this)

 

Juicy perfume (I like their perfumes so I'm happy about this too.)

 

It seems like I like my box more then I really do, because overall I'm pretty meh.

Hi, I signed up this past Sunday and even though the charge for the month went through on my credit card, I have yet to get a shipping notice or any box contents listed on my account. There is a link for February shipping but it hasn't been updated yet. Is it still a little early since I just started the subscription or do I need to contact them?

 

Also, I have Sample Society and I like what I am getting this month. I also like the prompt service since I have already received my shipping notice and the contents have been updated on the account. What I am not liking so far about Birchbox is that I am still waiting and yet others are getting their info for the month. Compared to SS, this isn't looking good to me. And I just signed up for SS this past Sunday as well. I basically started both subs the same day. I wanted to see if they had gotten any better over the years as I have had both before. And Birchbox just isn't looking so good to me right now.

 

Also, does Birchbox ever, EVER change up their samples? I think I am starting to notice how they do the sampling. It seems like they have a lot of different samples from a lot of different brands, and since there are multiple box variations out there, they put samples in people's boxes according to their profile, but they rarely, if ever, have anything that is completely brand new. And when that does happen, only a rare lucky few get the new sample. Everybody else is left in the dust and then their boxes continue to be these old leftover samples that were probably brand new a year or so ago and Birchbox is just going through the stash and putting them in the boxes and hence why we have all of these variations going and so forth. It seems like if you stay with them for at least a year or more, you can kind of figure out what all they have and whether or not you've gotten it YET or not. I just don't know if I like that or not because at least with SS everybody pretty much gets the same stuff and they do have or try to have different brands and products every month. Looks like I may be canceling again in the future if this does turn out to be true with Birchbox. Have any of you noticed this lately?

No, this isn't really true. Sure they recycle the same brands and products to death at times but yes they always add in new things too. As I've stated in a previous post, I've been with them since 2011 and, for example, this month there was 60+ variations of boxes and I was still eligible to get at least half due to adding in new stuff, having different colors/scents of some things I've already gotten, and because there are just some things that seem to be elusive to me (like the beauty blender). Last month I was also eligible for about half the boxes as well.

 

The boxes are suppose to ship out by the 10th. If they don't, contact BB but you need to wait until then but if you signed up after the 1st, I think they can ship out later and estimated date is usually around the 20th. I still have January's tracking number, no updates yet, and I am on a yearly sub.

 

Edited to add that I just looked at old boxes from several months ago to a few years ago and most of those items they haven't offered since .

@@queenpans your shipping info and box should update within 10 days of subscribing. After that your box will officially load on the 10th of every month. We are viewing our boxes with a cheat that doesn't always work for everyone.

    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
    • Yes, poker is quite interesting for me. But I don't play for money..
    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
