Birchbox April 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Looks like I should have just tested it first. Just tweeted out the link and instantly received the ten points. Now I'm only 32 points from 400 on an account I was planning on canceling this month. Or do I get one more month to get above 400? Decisions, decisions... :)

Has anyone noticed that it looks like you no longer get points for sharing your box on Facebook or Twitter? The links are still there but it doesn't say anything about getting points, so I'm assuming that was a short-lived perk?

I shared through Twitter today and got the 10 points.

I am not a happy birchboxee @ the moment. While my box wasn't supposed to be amazing - hell, I was due to receive three lotions! - I was excited to try the Jouer tint (my PYS) intrigued to see what the POP shadows would be like, & decently interested in giving two of my three lotions a go.

Imagine my shock when I opened my box today to find NONE of what I was expecting but an entirely different box altogether...one that quite frankly made my supposed-to-have-received box seem incredible.

 

The box I actually received included:

Beaver shampoo & conditioner

La Fresh Body Soother wipe

Harvey Prince Hello lotion

Jane Iredale tint

 

I am none too pleased. And no, I didn't use the cheat; my online "box" still shows what I thought I would be receiving.

I emailed CS a polite yet firm note voicing my disappointment.

I also want to make sure my account is accurate re: what did show up in my mailbox so that I don't get any of these "goodies" again.

 

This is what I get for having sent a nothing- but- thanks- I'm-super-impressed-with-BB-CS yesterday after they remedied a defective beauty blender I'd received last week w/ an overnight replacement less than 24hrs after I contacted them.

I have to keep reminding myself how ahead I came out w/ that since only one blender was defective (a large hole in it right out of the package) & they sent a replacement duo.

Best case scenario they'll send the box I was supposed to receive but I'll be okay as long as they send me the Jouer, since that was my PYS. Especially if I get another pretty box out if it. We shall see.

Or if they want to give me 500 PYS I suppose I'd be ok w/ that also:).

 

P.S. Honesty be damned I did rush to "review" all the items on my account that I didn't receive so I at least get the extra points if their fix is to just change what appears online. I'm not embarrassed to admit I actually did that before I even emailed....just in case the items somehow changed at that very moment!

They messed up my order when I bought the upgrade for the 20$ extra so they charged me but they said it was still saying I was supposed to get a normal box :( So I got a box today with

jane iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain (PYS)

which is super disapointing when you spend $30 on a box. I called customer service on Friday and they are "looking into it" and I should "rest assured knowing they will track down my extra two items". I will call again in a few minutes if the lines are still open and see since I have recieved no follow up email about my items! (Oh and I got 50 points for the repeat shave cream sample but NOTHING for this error, for those wondering)

 

FOLLOW UP: no one reponded (the message said no one was available then it hung up on me so they werent closed yet, thats a different message that you get if you call now) when I called at 2:40pm PT so I emailed back the person who said they would follow up friday. If I get news I will post. I'm normally so happy with Birchbox's customer service! This time not so much :(

 

Got an email this morning that I received 100 points to my account for the issue and they are sending me my two full size items through the mail separately! My upgraded box two full size items are Smith & Cult Nailed Lacquer - Pillow Pie and Lord & Berry Alchimia Definition Mascara! Not quite two items that I needed but hey, the value is nice!

Finally got my April box!
The actual box is absolutely beautiful. I switched all my lipsticks from a vanity into this so I can pull it out easily and sort through for the right color. 

 

I LOVE the Jane Iredale tint, which was my PYS. I don't think they should call it a "stain" but it leaves a super pretty strawberry color on my lips that's perfect for no-makeup makeup days. I think I'm in the minority of liking the Whish blueberry scent, but I don't think it's much better than any other shaving cream I've used. The POP shadow will be gifted, and I haven't had a chance to try the Obliphica serum yet, but it smells good! OH and the Real Chemistry peel - JESUS CHRISTMAS THAT WORKS SO WELL. 

 

I feel bad for complaining early on because I ended up liking everything and feel for ya'll that got the beaver stuff.  :scared:

Me too. I noticed this 2 months ago and e-mailed them about it but never got a reply. I only get points for Twitter.

I just got a sort of follow up email. She confirmed once again that you are supposed to get points for sharing on FB, and she said that she sent it to IT.

I finally got my box! Happy Friday to me!

 

The good: I purchased the Rifle tote and it is beautiful! I love it and am so glad I got it. It will be great for Spring & Summer.

 

The bad: despite getting a confirmation email for the Jane Iredale, I didn't get it. I got the Jouer AND the Pop Beauty shadow. I have no interest in either of those items so I'm pretty bummed. I also got the Beaver Shampoo & Conditioner...what a horrible name for a product.

 

I've emailed customer service, we'll see what can be done, if anything.

As much as I (b)itched about getting two boxes with this stuff in it I'm glad! It made my hair really soft and smooth, it's pretty good stuff.

Question: Have folks been saving their Birchboxes since January? I cannot even remember why we are supposed to save them now... that seemed so long ago.

I'm saving mine, mostly because I use them for desk and bathroom storage. I don't think BB ever said why we should save them.

There was going to be a surprise but no one specifically said what it would be.  They might have meant save boxes because we are going to stop doing the plain brown ones. Or there might be a contest at the end of the year.

This box was such a bummer I'm having trouble getting myself to comment on it! It's been days since my box came. The only item I have tried is my PYS jane iredale. Love it. Very tiny sample but I love it.

The box is such a bummer because I have already tried 3 of the 5 brands in previous boxes and 2 of them are the same product but in a different scent. All of them are tiny.

Not soap radio: this is my 3rd body wash from them I almost have the full set!

Harvey prince body butter: I got the lotion before

Super goop eye cream: I got the spf before

Ojon hair oil: I will try it but I have trouble finding hair oil I like. I thought I took dry hair off my profile to avoid oils but maybe I didnt. Just send me hair masks BB jeez. There are so many hair masks I want to try but I get oils. Ipsy sent me a hair oil this month too. Le sigh.

I know it isn't the same as a hair mask, but a lot of the time I use the hair oils they give me as overnight hair masks. They work better than a lot of the normal masks I've used.

They replied that they're sending a replacement for the shadows. Oh well I can always give it to my sister.

 

Hmmm the discount code I'm not sure yet! 

Birchbox emailed me today today, they are out of the eyeshadow palette and won't send me a replacement, instead they gave me 50 points for the busted eyeshadow.  Whoo!

I finally got to try everything in my box. I got:

 

Bee Venom Mask (nice scent but I didn't see much effect)

CR Illuminizer (nice, but I don't see me working it into my routine on a permanent basis)

Hair Sunscreen Spray (fine, smell isn't my fav, sample is big so I will use it this summer when I garden)

Temple Lotion (nice but not exciting, already used it up)

Jane Iredale PYS (kinda bummed, I was really looking forward to this sample as I love JI, but while this smells awesome it comes out as a pretty bright pink on my lips... which is not great for me)

 

Overall, I thought it was a good box, as I'm glad I got to try these picks. I'm rooting for hair mask too in future boxes!

I finally got my box. Mine is the upgraded version (I signed up for the upgrade as soon as it was being offered just to see what it's all about) so I'm assuming the Cult and the Lord and Berry items are the upgrade part. I'm really happy about this box because I'm going to be able to use most of the items. I'm currently loving Jouer so another Jouer mini is nice. I tried it on right away and the shade petal is perfect for me. I prefer this to the Tata Harper version. I'm looking forward to trying the Paula's Choice vitamin C serum as well. The beaver stuff I'll pass on. The Cult nail polish I'm the most excited about because I have one Cult already and it's really good. I'm horrible at applying nail polish and when I wore the Cult I had bought my friend thought I had gel nails. The nail polish looked so good. It's extremely easy to apply and lasts great and looks even better. I'll stick with the upgraded version for now because at least for this month it was worth paying the extra. Hopefully next month is as good as this month.

    • Content and Mechanism of ActionIn the competition between "FILDENA VS VIAGRA", it can be considered a draw when it comes to their active pharmaceutical ingredients and their drug action. Both the legendary Viagra drug and the generic Fildena products contain the same Sildenafil Citrate (PDE5 inhibitor), which means they have the same mechanism of action for impotence treatment.

    • Experimenting with different hair care products is not a good idea. For temporary, you can use hair extensions to make a hairstyle that you want. Other than that I will suggest you use onion juice twice a week. You will see results in your hair growth. Along with this you should use coconut oil. For more guidance visit aysanhairdesign.com.au
