Birchbox May 2015 (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Meh, so much box envy this month.
I am so underwhelmed with both of mine that I am gonna use up points and cancel the second one, I think. If a good 100 point code comes up, I can always renew.

uggh.... I mean, it isn't HORRIBLE, but it isn't great either

 

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream - I have OILY SKIN.  This is for DRY SKIN.  Plus, I have gotten this so many times in the mystery 2-pick

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymtic Face Rejuvenator - this is okay - I've tried it before in swaps
Beauty Protector Beauty Wash Body Cleanser - meh.  I don't like BP products & I just got a BP product last month, but at least it isn't hair oil or shampoo

Coastal Scents® Revealed 3 Palette - meh.  I would rather have some of the kbeauty items.  I don't like coastal scents
Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Mist - my PYS choice

 

so, 2 products that I am okay with.   One meh - will be used.  Another meh - probably won't be used. and a hell no on the yu-be product.

I feel you on the Yu-Be. I got it a while ago. It is a tiny sample and quite heavy. On the plus side, it is great for heels/feet. The sample is so little that it is only enough for one application to the heels, but it was decent in the winter months.

The cheat says I'll receive the following:

 

Number 4 Thermal Styling Spray

Sumbody Salt Scrub

Mally Automatic Eyeliner

Cotz Flawless Complexion SPF 50

Whish Flawless Swipes

 

I'm okay with most of those items, but... my sample choice (the peel) isn't listed.  If the box doesn't change before I get it, that'll be two months in a row that I haven't received my sample choice, despite getting confirmations both times.

Ugh - I have a year subscription to BB that runs out in a few months. Is it bad that I'm kind of looking forward to it ending, even though it's prepaid?  I can't remember the last time I got a box I was excited for. Plus I get perfume every month despite my survey, so I feel like I really only get 4 samples each month.

 

I didn't choose a PYS this month because I didn't like any of them, so of course I'm getting 2 of them:

 

Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume as the monthly unwanted perfume

Naobay Moisturizer that I've gotten before

Well People Mascara as the first PYS I didn't choose

Macadamia hair oil as the second

Beauty Protector body lotion - I've gotten so many BP items, and I just don't like the scent, too sweet.

 

BB is making me bitter and negative - I prefer the unbridled joy and optimism my other boxes give me :)  More Boxycharm and BeautyFix are in my future.  And I pre-ordered Mishibox, so I'm pretty excited about that!

I might have to stick with the curated boxes - it seems that lately, I love the curated boxes, but dislike it when I pick a sample.

 

The problem I have is some of these products are SO OLD.  the yu-be and Vasanti is from a while ago and I really was shocked to see it in my bag this time round.

 

I love BB's point system, but I have the feeling that if the curated box is good, that is what I will pick. I am not sure what the guest blogger picked out in this horrible box for me.  Surely not the yu-be crap.

HAPPY!!

That is a dream box!!!

 

Did you get the two full size add ons? I read on the birchbox Facebook page some people saying that the cargo palette might be one of them.

Man all three of my boxes suck again this month, not quite as bad as last month but I think it's time to take a BB break. Out if all the great things this month I got all the garbage. Womp womp.

I would be ecstatic if I got the Cargo palette as a full size!  This is my first month with the add ons.. I figured my 2 full size out of everything would be the Jouer Lipgloss and the Prescriptives mascara. 

 

I'm also slated to get the Cargo Palette, Smashbox Primer water, Macademia oil, Naobay oxygenating Cream Cleanser, and the English Laundry Notting Hill parfum.

Newgistics is trucking with one of my boxes this month. Shipping label was created on the evening of the fourth and it showed movement on the fifth and was one state over where it transfers to USPS by the sixth even though it went to or started from New Jersey. I'm expecting it well before their eta of the twelfth.

I ordered the curated box and I got a notice it was delivered today, so I'm excited to check it out when I get home. This is the earliest I've received my BB, but then again I've never ordered the curated box, so maybe that's why. I was just not having any luck at all with random boxes or even when I selected a PYS, so hoping I like the curated version.

Well, my second box is kiiiinda meh, but with my main being that awesome 7 item Living Proof box, I'm alright with it!

 

- Chosunga lipstick

- No. 4 Blowdry lotion (I love No. 4, will probably love this)

- Benefit moisturizer (have tried in the past, not really a fan)

- Real Chemistry peel (dupe of my PYS on the other account, oh well!)

- Whish wipes (have tried, they're ok, great for my work bag)

 

Nothing I'm pumped about, but I will use everything but the moisturizer (which my mom will take off my hands).

Can someone tell me how to do the "cheat" to see what is coming in my boxes?

 

I appreciate it!

 

Thanks!

Thank you but this will lead me to all the boxes if I change the number at the end.

Is there a way to find out which box I am getting?

I thought there was a cheat somewhere....

If you want to see your specific May 2015 box (like the screenshots we are sharing), you can use the link @@graquarius provided. If you change the number to 6 (stands for June) it will show all the samples you received so far since June page does not exist yet.

In case you see all samples with the 2015/5 at the end, I think it means they didn't load your box content yet.

 

If you want to see all box combinations, you can use the following link: https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/may-2015/may-2015-bb1

But it does not work yet, they did not load any box combos as of now.

I can't believe it - I checked my tracking today and my box will be coming TOMORROW. It said expected May 12-13 yesterday but it apparently changed at some point. Kudos Birchbox!

Another reason this may be happening is you're on the mobile site (not the app, as I don't know about the app). But I find that when I try and use the link on my phone's mobile browser, I get all my past box combos. Try using the cheat on a computer if this is the issue and it should work. [:

    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  My Advent calendar has been nice, but my week was unlucky. First there was the broken water heater, then my brother had a flat tire, my father had a flat tire, and my brother had a mishap where he hit the mailbox at my work with his car when he came to pick me up  - I am so ashamed. My work is slow so they cut everybody's hours. The paychecks are going to be low, It's just for the holidays, they said. But who knows. This all happened in one week.  I don't know if I will be able to pay off my credit card by the end of the year as I wanted, and if I will be able to do the January goal I had planned. At least I finished my Christmas shopping and mailing for friends and family! I found it difficult. This weekend I need to clean and make a Plan B.
