Birchbox April 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I really like the Liz Earle cleanse and polish. After using the sample I got through Birchbox, I got the set that included the toner and moisturizer through liz earle's site. I really want to try the Emma Hardie one!

 

I really like the Liz Early myself. I like the whole Liz Early line and used to use a lot of the products. Haven't tried the Emma Hardie one either.

 

Thanks! I have been interested in Liz Earle for a long time, I think I'll get it then! The Emma Hardie Balm is amazing! If you want to try it I would get on the Emma Hardie website and order the Starter kit. It comes with the balm, a sample size of a face cream, and a really nice cleansing cloth all in a nice bag to store it in.

I use the balance me cleanse and polish balm. It comes with a nice muslin cloth, and cleans very well. Leaves my skin glowy:)

Ladies - I'm assuming I'll get points for buying that Rifle Tote?  When do we normally see points for add-on items?

 

No tracking info for my MMNY box yet!

I was also wondering when the Plus item points show in our account, since it is on my credit card.

Is this by the same company that make the Balance Me eye cream ? Because that eye cream is changing my life. Well, my face but still...

While were waiting for more spoilers and box pages to load does anyone have any recommendations for a good makeup removing cleanser? I am using the Emma Hardie one right now and I love it! Is there anything similar on birchboxes website. I'm looking to use points on it. I really like using muslin cloths to wipe it off since they are easier and less messy then splashing water on your face. Thanks for any advice!

 

Also that Fekkai spoiler looks really interesting! I hope I get it! I'm not normally too fussed over hair producs either!

I can totally recommend the Eve Lom cleanser.  It removes all make up including waterproof mascara and is very gentle on your skin.  The price is not exactly gentle on your wallet but I feel it's worth it.  I do not wear mascara daily but when I do, this is my HG product to clean at night.

Yes! I'm on my second tube, I love it. The texture is a little gritty, so it lightly exfoliates and it doesn't dry out my skin. I've used Liz Earle, and prefer the Balance Me.

I upgraded this month and have 2 items loaded for April so far so not sure if this is the 2 full size beauty items, but they're Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss and Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner in Navy. Kind of disappointed if this holds true, just not my type of products.

Those are the two items Jen V said were her upgrade items on her blog.

Mine is showing exactly the same and I have the same PYS. 

Hoping it is a mistake like mine was last month - I have more than enough neutral eyeshadows and they are MUCH better quality than pop beauty. I guess the rest will get used eventually.. but I'm definitely not excited for any of these options.

My box peek shows

 

Jane Iredale cheek and lip stain (PYS)

Temple Spa face and body balm

Real Chemistry Peel

Harvey Prince Yogini

Supergoop CC cream

 

I think I'm pretty happy if these are the actual box contents. I've traded before for the RC Peel and I actually have tried but wanted to give the Supergood CC cream another try.

 

I'm also getting the Mad Men NY box and just that and the lip tint has be anxious for my boxes.

 

PS-from what I can tell the numbered box pages aren't showing up yet.

Birchbox is so silly.

 

I thought I signed up for the $20 upgrade, but apparently I wasn't charged for it and they're not showing on my cheat box page. So I guess I didn't, I'm trying to find the email in my folder.

 

Also, I didn't pick one of the PYS products for one box and I'm getting the POP shadow trio, wasn't that one of the first items to "sell out"?  It would seem to me if the pop shadows sold out they wouldn't be in non PYS boxes, but who the heck knows.

Well two of three of my boxes have loaded and they are both spectacularly HORRIBLE.  Worst boxes I've ever gotten, I DID NOT pick a sample and ended up with that horrid Pop Beauty eye trio and the brow gel, I like ABH, but I've got two full size brow gels ready to go.  And LOTS of shampoo and conditioner, ugh BB, ugh!  Suuuuucks!

https://www.birchbox.com/me/boxes/women/2015/4 is the link I used.

 

My box:

Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue 30ml
Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect
Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream in pomegranate
Jouer Tint (my PYS)
Real Chemistry Luminous 3 minute Peel
 
This is only my 3rd box, but the 3rd time I have received cologne which I don't have marked....so hopefully my 6 perfume samples per year will be over soon LOL. I'm not real thrilled with this box, I won't use the saving cream and I'm so tired of the hair products....don't have that selected either. But interested in trying the Peel and the Jouer Tint of course was my PYS.
 
I'll give BB a few more months, but if things don't improve think I will cancel. Much happier with some of my other subs, and I need to reduce the number anyway  :)

Mine is showing the same.  So here's my question, if you get a sample in a curated box, can they give it to you again down the road without breaking the "never duplicates" rule?  I got whish shave cream in July, which I guess was the partnership with Women's Health, but it wasn't curated, right?  

 

Hoping this isn't REALLY my box.....

Mine changed up from the cheat by the time it shipped last month... but I'd be pretty happy if what's listed stays

 

real chemistry 3 minute peel

clean perfume

not soap radio body wash

paula's choice RESIST 25% C spot treatment

jane iredale lip/cheek stuff

 

I don't love perfume samples, but I'll take them.  Everything else I'll use for sure.

Oh, yuck. I'm getting:

Whish Shave Cream (Meh, I've gotten it before)
Jouer Tint (My PYS)
Laqa Lip Lube (I've gotten this TWICE before)
Beaver Shampoo
Beaver Conditioner

No thank you, Birchbox! Please let this be a mistake.

    • 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..
