Birchbox Upgraded Subscription

Recommended Posts

How do you guys opt out of upgraded add on's I don't see an option to un-enroll on my account?

 

Do I need to email them?  I am supposed to get a mascara this month I don't want another mascara (particularly that I've already sampled) again next month.

Yes, you email the CS to downgrade.

I downgraded via email I told them I didn't want mascara back to back months, particularly mascara we've already sampled.

I'm considering downgrading also. It really hasn't been worth it to me these couple of months. I keep thinking maybe I'll just hang on one more month because I don't want to miss out on anything great but maybe I should just cancel.

I was thinking that too but I don't want mascara every month, and it's one of my favorite cosmetics. If they sent nail polish and lip items in different shades I'd stay signed up. Even if they sent deluxe sized fragrances, hair tie packages, the options are endless but mascara back to back, c'mon

I thought the idea sounded good BUT I would like to be able to choose which two items, say, out of 6 choices (or even 4??) but not just randomly. Birchbox sends me mascara in almost every box for some reason so if I got a box with mascara AND one of the two upgrades was also a mascara, I'd be even more P.O.'d!

Any thoughts on the upgrades this month? They are a water bottle, sunglasses, a beach towel and tattoos. I'm going to skip on the upgrades because I really don't need any of these items. I did consider the water bottle but I have enough water bottles plus the size isn't as big as I usually use.

I want one of the water bottles but I always thing with points, and promotion codes I can get the items for cheaper rather than paying for the upgrade, and not to mention waiting for it to ship!

 

They ship orders very fast, birchboxes  take forever though as I'm still grumpy that I'm waiting on my June box.

The upgrades were packaged in a separate box! Love the new packaging. I'm happy with the items too.

I got the same as you for my upgrades this month @@Reija! I love the mascara, and have tried it at the beach as it said it was waterproof, and it did pretty good with strong waves! The Dirty Martini eye shadow duo I thought were really good colors, but I am a little disappointed in the pigmentation. I feel that it was kind of funny though for them to send two mascaras in a row.

That's a good point @@Queennie about sending two mascaras in a row. I didn't even think about it. I haven't tried the eye shadow duo yet. Hopefully next month is something different other than mascara or an eye shadow.

I heard...they will start some new option...did you get to know what that may be...

I'm hoping that the new option could be to pick out a full size makeup item for one set price? Maybe like a $20 subscription where at sample choice you got to choose a full size makeup item? I would rather have that as I actually get to pick, and not get a million mascaras!

I didn't get anymore details. Hopefully we will know more soon. I wonder if it has something to do with their own makeup line that is coming out? Thanks for the info @@Bizgirlva in another thread!

I think lots of changes are in store for Birchbox. Katia talked a lot about content and converting customers. I think Birchbox will be changing a lot from the current model.

I got the same things but different colors @@Bizgirlva . I got the twistick in Pinkmania and the Smith and Cult lip lacquer in hi-speed sonnet. I love them both and have used them almost daily since getting them.

Mine were different, twist stick was rock &'roses and the smith and cult was her name bubbles.

 

The gloss is just ok, I really like the lord & berry twist stick formula.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
