Birchbox April 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I know this is the April thread, but I just finally got my March box! Whew that took forever which is so unusual for me, but I think I understand what the hold up might've been now. I originally ordered a pair of the Birchbox Plus earbuds but then changed my mind and emailed them to cancel it. The rep repsonded that the order was cancelled and I would not be billed for the earbuds, and I wasn't. But guess what? My box arrived yesterday afternoon and packaged up with it was the earbuds! I feel terrible eeeek. They have sent me random extras before by mistake and whenever I email I'm just told to keep them, so I'm sure they'll do the same this time, but I'm going to email just in case.

I still haven't received my Birchbox on my second account that I picked a Birchbox plus item for. Unless the plus items are amazing this month I am not sure if I will pick one just because it takes so much longer to receive.

It makes me wonder why they would test new programs like the upgraded box if they can't deliver the boxes with 'plus' items in a timely manner.

 

Also, I can believe it is the 24th and we don't even know the selection dates yet!

the video is up!!!

TWO Mad Men boxes - one New York, one LA. Sample choice is as expected.

 

As soon as she picked up the non-set box I was like "is that Rifle?" SO CUTE. Resisting that tote will be difficult...

I like that there is two curated boxes, and I'm leaning towards the New York one. I really want to try out the brow gel and I think the Liz Earle eyebright looks interesting.

I want the NY box or no sample choice!  I don't  like any of the sample choices.  Jane Iredale is a great brand, but the color looks too light for me.

Rifle Paper Co. is my fave! I will definitely be getting the tumbler and notebook add on.

 

Edit: It just let me reserve both Birchbox Plus items on the site! When I saw how big the tote was, I had to have that too!

Weirdly enough, I just bought the notebooks in my last Birchbox order, and while I think the tumblr is absolutely gorgeous, I don't need another one- I have at least a dozen that I barley use! :(

 

I told myself I didn't need to spend the money on the tote because I really don't need ANOTHER bag but like you said, as soon as I saw how roomy it was I just could NOT resist it!! I feel like it's the perfect bag for Spring/Summer to take on day trips or to the beach!

I can't decide which box I want. . they're all so good!  I might go for the Rifle Paper Co. box and choose the Jouer blush (I love Jouer, but haven't tried their blush yet.  That color looks perfect for spring!).   

 

I'm very tempted by the tote, it's a gorgeous print and looks both sturdy and roomy.  Decision, decisions.  

 

Are you all keeping your boxes?  I've been recycling mine, though I might regret it since they said there will be some kind of a fun event at the end of the year and encouraged us to keep our boxes.

Just got my April spoiler email, next month looks awesome! Picking one of the mad men boxes for my mom and the jouer PYS form myself.

 

Those add ons are soooo tempting!!! Not sure I can resist!

 

Even adding a second sub for this month is super tempting, for those boxes alone!

She was so pretty in the video. I'm still leaning toward the Jane Iredale lip stain, and I think I'm try for the New York Mad Men box.

 

I LOVE the Rifle Paper box design. I'd actually do Plus this month if only I didn't have too many notepads, drink cups and a new tote already. But big props for the beautiful products.

 

It looks like we might have to share to get the early selection this month. They didn't say anything about ACES having priority. I did share and wondered why I didn't get the extra 10 points - now we know - but some people seem to have gotten points anyway. Oh well.

 

Thursday can't come soon enough. <3

 

EDIT: strike that comment - I swear I read the text twice, but now I see the comment at the bottom that ACES will have early choice. Sorry if I scared anyone.

Does anyone know if you sign up with a new account can you choose the curated box or do you not get that option because you missed the PYS window?

If you sign up before the 27th I think you get to choose but don't hold me to that.

 

I finally decided which one I want becuAse all of the options are so great.

 

1st choice- New York curated

2nd choice- California curated

3rd choice- jouer PYS

 

the 27th is my 27th bday so hopefully I get one of those options. If not, I'll leave it up to chance.

I think I will go with the California box on the main. I was thinking of cancelling the second sub but the riffle paper box is so freaking cute. Maybe I will leave one up to chance.

oh and the add on - tumbler & notepads.   I think that is just so pretty and I can never have enough tumblers.

I have a question for anyone who has the answer. Can you add both add on's? I did the notebook tumbler set, and then went back and added the tote. Both on the same account. Is that allowed?

1) grabbed the tote. Perfect teacher bag and I can never have enough totes!

 

2) think I'm going to do the NY box on one account and Jane iredale on another. Or not choose a PYS.

 

3) debating whether or not to grab the tumbler too. It's sooooooo pretty

I'm pretty sure I remember people doing this before, but I can't say for sure as I've never done it- I'm assuming they allow it- why wouldn't they want to make more money? haha ;)

 

I just sent the video link to my mom as I normally choose products for her each month, but there were just way too many great choices. She was VERY excited and decided to go with the New York Box. :) 

I love the curated boxes but they're always sort of a let down for me when the time comes to see my samples. I love getting the surprise of what's going to be in my box, plus it makes for a more interesting review than getting the same curated box as so many other people. So long-winded rambling explanation short: I chose the Jane Iredale lippie. I love the brand, and I'm not fond of the other two choices, so I'm hoping I'll enjoy the shade of the tint! Plus the added tote is just making me even more excited since it's my first birchbox plus product ever! :D

    • Last Wednesday, the night before payday, I began to get interested in doing a project use it up and trying to pay off my debts. It's a never ending life's work I am always trying to accomplish.  Since then I've been developing a new plan for myself. I paid $20.00 on my smallest credit card, which brought the balance down to $100.00. I started using up some foil pack samples that I had already opened.  I came up with a plan to do a snowball plan for my debts. I'm not going to impose a deadline for paying them off. (Will pay the debts off one at a time, from smallest to largest.) At the same time I will have snowball plan for using up my beauty products. I'll organize them based on size in ounces, and use them up one at a time, from smallest to largest. I've started using my foil pack hair masques, cleansers, eye creams. I've got my shower gels and cleansers organized by ounces from smallest to largest. This is fun to do, and it really simplifies things. I'm going to make a workbook for myself.  I'm excited to get into the new plan!  First goal - pay off smallest credit card - $100.00. Use up foil pack hair masque, eye cream, cleanser, scrub, shower gel, eye masque. 
    • I love that many of the fragrances here have an imposing character of their own, yet undoubtedly bring out the best in a woman, and still hypnotize the majority of men around every single time!
    • just visited ur blog! keep up the good writing! we need more authentic beauty bloggers rather than just instagram photos.
    • I love camping a lot! i camp on the great outdoor to relax and chill whenever i had too much work stress. (which is quite common)
    • whats that? A beauty?
