Birchbox April 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I got my box today. I live about 30 mins from Mt. Juliet so I guess that's why mine come so quick. If anyone wants to know what I got in my box, let me know and I'll post a spoiler picture :)

 

Awesome, glad another local did actually get their box without going through Jersey! I also live about 30 minutes from Mt Juliet, but my box still heads to New Jersey every month. I just think its funny they do that, but since I'm not paying for the shipping, whatever they want to do!  :D

I live not far from the warehouse where Victoria's Secret ships their catalog orders. It always cracks me up that they have to spend an extra day going over to the the postal hub Indiana before coming back over here to get delivered.
My NY box came today, no surprises there. I love the box..all of them this month are going to be really pretty in person, I think. I am a little embarrassed that I am loving to hoard the cute boxes to use for storing odds and ends around the house as much as I love the samples. :wub:

Question, if you aren't getting a PYS in your box, will you still get the Rifle box I'd you are a current subscriber, as long as you didn't pick the curated box? thanks

Birchbox changed its policy and will no longer send subscriptions to Military addresses overseas. I just resubbed and contacted them to make sure I still have my sub and they said that if I cancel I won't be able to resub in the future. I'm disappointed since I usually have up to three subs at a time.

I had to comment when I started reading this thread. I used the cheat and saw that the Beaver shampoo and conditioner are listed for my box. Is this an April Fool's joke? I did try to read more about the shampoo and conditioner, but the pages came up not found. I hope BB would not send items made in China with a name that women of my generation would recognize as being offensive.

This is a super-dumb question, but how do I cancel my subscription?  I "opted out" of the yearly resubscription the other day when that link appeared, but my page still says:

 

Women's Subscription

Status: Active

 

I want to cancel and then maybe re-sub down the line.

Under the My Account/ Account Settings, & then under the Woman's Sub option there should be a clickable "Cancel Subscription" option that is clickable.

If you still have a box to receive then your sub may still say "active" despite you opting out of renewal, esp if you don't still see the cancel option. That said, if I were you I would email (or call) them to be certain...better to make sure now (as you already seem to be doing).

Hope this helps!

If it helps, I didn't see the brand in the product shop.......maybe we are getting something super awesome and it is a delayed (and weak as hell) April Fool's joke?

I personally think it will update to the Living Proof product line. No one has mentioned they are getting it yet and these are in the New Products listing today.

I could only hope this is a joke, I am getting TWO IDENTICAL boxes with this crap in them, and a bunch of other garbage.  So irritated this month.  I looked on Amazon where they sell the mini sample size duos of shampoo and conditioner for 3.49 for BOTH.  My boxes don't add up to ten bucks this month and there's no much I want to "discover" in there either, lol!

I didn't get shampoo and conditioner in my box this month!  My cheat shows the Whish, POP, peel, hair serum and Jane Iredale combo.  But a few weeks ago, I placed an order and got a pick-two sample pack with it.  A foil of shampoo, and a foil of conditioner.  Not Beaver brand, but still - worth $10?  I don't think so.

It's not a joke. There are instagram pictures of April boxes containing the Beaver samples. I used the box cheat today and saw that my box would contain those. Also the Laqa which I have received previously.  It does not included the PYS sample I selected. I am hoping it updates to  something else. I got shampoo last month and I don't want it twice in a row and I really want my eyeshadow.

I really hope I don't get the Beaver items in my box. I'm not interested in trying any hair care made in China after reading the comments here about this brand.  I had bought Theorie brand on Gilt for cheap and ended up not using them because it said right on the bottles made in China. They were suppose to be sulfate and paraben free etc also but I just didn't want to use them. I'm kind of crazy and picky about cosmetics and where they are made. Made in China on the bottle doesn't make me feel confident that what ever is listed in the ingredients is what is exactly in the bottle.

I so wish that BB would consider stated preferences. The #1 thing that I am always looking for is skincare, skincare, skincare. They also know that I don't like perfume and I think organic is a plus. Yet month after month, I see amazing organic products (that I rarely get) and awesome skincare (that I rarely get). This month between my 2 accounts I have 2 shampoos, 2 conditioners, 1 perfume, a body wash, body wash wipes, 2 lipsticks, and a body butter.

 

The only thing that I'm happy to see is the Jane Iredale lip product because I picked it (had received one from Sample Society a while back and my daughter adored the cute mini sample and the color/ingredients passed the test for an 8 year old play make-up option) but her sister accidentally smooshed it so this will make up for past wrongs.

 

Funny, I always get tons of skincare and shampoo/conditioners when all I really am interested is makeup. I get at least 1-2 items of skincare every month. I have sensitive skin so most I can't use and I already have a routine I love. I have stressed in my profile makeup but I seem to get the complete opposite.  It really is frustrating.

Birchbox seems to be in a grumpy mood. Everyone is getting Beaver stuff as punishment for not getting a madmen box.  I went to see if I could find an unboxing video to tell me how bad the shampoo is. All I learned is that blueberry whish shaving cream will make your legs smell like Saturday morning at IHOP.

Hahaha! That is actually really funny, yet so terrible at the same time! :lol:

I never thought blueberry sounded like a good scent for shave cream or body lotion. :wacko:

 

But seriously, just the name "beaver" shampoo seems..so.very.wrong.

I have my clicky- truck, but delivery not due until next tues or wed (14th or 15th). My box items appear the same as when they first appeared a few days ago (w/out any cheat).

I live an hour or two away from a Victorias Secret warehouse and my orders almost always come directly to me. Although I have to say it normally takes it's grand ol' time getting here, stopping fr days at some places. I just ordered from there though so we'll see which route it takes this time! Mail is so weird! I don't think I'll ever understand the randomness of it!

Oh god, that sounds like a terrible scent! If my legs smelled like IHOP I think I would barf! Thank the lord I'm not getting that!

 

Is it me or does this whole box process seem to be really draw out and longer than it used to be? I swear when I was subscribed like a year or two ago everyone had their boxes before the 10th. I guess it's all the new subscribers adding to what they have to package and send out, but I feel like soon it's going to be over the entire month!
