Birchbox March 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the shade of the Laura Geller blush in the curated box?  I'm super pale and anything too dark makes me look like a clown, but I've been wanting a blush in my BB for SO LONG.

I did my first cancel and resub using the Jillian code. It worked but I feel so guilty for some reason. I got an extra 10 points for sharing on facebook- you know the fake account I created to hop the Ipsy waitlist. I know some people do this all the time. If BB really cared they would make it so the codes only worked on new accounts, right? :unsure:

If you cancel and resub will your first box be the March box or will you get another February box?

I'm super excited about the PYS choices. I'm gonna go with the It's a 10 since it detangles and moisturizes my curly hair so well and then on my other account I'm gonna go with the Beauty Protector Oil. It smells so good and leaves my hair so soft.

I was worrying about that when I did it. But it said I'd be billed for March so I'm thinking February is over.

Idk when I just opened another account I thought that it said on their page that if you sub by the 28th you will start with the Feb box but mayBe I read wrong??

I think if you subscribe now you still get February's, because I wanted to resub on one of my accounts for March, but it's saying the box will ship by 1st of March which means it's February's box. However, if it says it would be shipped by 10th of March then it's most likely March's box.

If you've already gotten the Feb box, the next box they send you will be March. They won't send you two boxes for one month.

 

But if you open a new account - like a second sub - then you may receive the Feb box.

Yeah this is an old account that already received a Feb box.  It didn't say anything was shipping March 1, it said that's when I'd be billed. If you haven't already gotten February, that is what you would get unless they sell out. 

 

If they want to send me another Feb box that would be fab so long as it wasn't the exact one I'd already gotten. I'd love to try the davines products or one of the mascaras.

My year sub started in December. I've had BB since August. I'm over the crappy boxes I've been getting. Every time I pick a sample my box sucks. I'm not picking this time. And I don't think I'll be looking either next month. Going to keep the disappointment a suprise. Maybe they'll suptise me and not give me any more shampoos, conditioners, body washes, or perfumes.

The one time I picked a sample, my box sucked. Everytime I leave it up to chance I've gotten great boxes :)

I didn't pick anything the last two months and my boxes have been great as well. Looking forward to this month's. I briefly looked at it online but can't remember what's in my box. On the first quick look it looked great but we'll see when it gets here. I didn't want to look longer because I want it to be a surprise when I open it.

Is the birchbox plus page not working? I tried going on it all day today and it says there's no products available...

 

I tried it today and it was still acting wonky.  The page wasn't showing up when I logged in at first. When I tried to reserve a candle, it added it to my cart (the reserve now button was missing). I think that I have reserved it now. Has anyone gotten a confirmation email about their Birchbox Plus choice?

I haven't received a confirmation e-mail for the necklace I reserved, but when I go back into the necklace add on page, it confirms there that I reserved it

Have you tried messing with your profile? Every once in a while I change up my profile. For a couple months I'll select all my desired preferences, and either after a disappointing month or a couple months regardless I'll de-select everything except the bare essentials. (Skin tone/type, hair color/type, etc) basically a blank profile. I have noticed I tend to enjoy the blank profile boxes a little more.

People must have been on the ball with the BB Plus this month.  I tried to reserve the scarf 50 minutes after the email came through, and even though it wasn't grayed out with "Out of Stock" it wouldn't let me reserve it.  Slightly bummed because it's the first Plus I've wanted in months, but I guess my wallet will be happy.  ;)

Definitely good for the wallet  :D but if you really want the scarf, you should e-mail birchbox and double check if they have any more in stock or whether they could give you the deal when it's back in stock. They're pretty helpful

5:30 AM PST, and the sample choice page isn't available yet. Crap. My schedule today is opening at work, then class, then back to work. I don't have the ability to stalk the sample choice page today. However, I'll be damned if I don't get that It's A Ten spray.

Just got my sample choice email about 10 minutes ago...so they're coming! I picked the Amika on one account ( I LOVE that blowout spray and this size is perfect for traveling) and the curated box on the other account (I really wanted the blush).

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
