Birchbox May 2015 (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

FYI: The Beaver shampoo and conditioner contains some sort of carcinogen. 

 

This is not my content, but I saw this on Imgur, and there is a post about it on Reddit as well: http://imgur.com/7uDCQw8

 

That's all that I know. I figured I would share.

 

Hmm, the reddit thread said someone received this from notice from BB in an email. I did not. Or was it just sent to the recipients of the Beaver shampoo residing in California? It's weird how different states have different regulations over how products are labelled.

yes, I have purchased shampoo that has that label on it.   I still have my hair and most importantly, my head is still attached...

The email is related to Prop 65, which is a CA law. I'm not from CA, but from what I can tell the email was only sent to CA subscribers.

I'm in California and didn't get the email until yesterday night. I wasn't planning on using them anyhow.

Christmas tree lights also have that Prop 65 warning. It usually states, "This product contains a chemical known to cause cancer in the state of California." So in other words, so long as you don't use the product in California, you are safe.

So many things have the warning. Even the handbags from JustFab have the warning. Doesn't stop me from buying them though. :)

My second Ace account is in the picture again with the new 100 point code "BBJETBLUE10" :) So, what are we picking? 
My 1st PYS will definitely be the macadamia oil, but I am undecided on the 2nd account.
Is the BS2 box a good value?

I really don't know what I'll pick tomorrow!

I love the Real Chemistry a lot but I have already reviewed it so I don't know if I want to give up the points. Any word on the actual use of the Naobay? I'm one of those weirdos that likes their product scents.

My PYS was going to be:

 

ACE - oil, 2nd - chance, 3rd - peel (choosing because I don't want identical accounts like last month for ACE and 3rd)

 

But I realized that my 3rd already got the peel - so do I

 

1) pick peel lose 10 points but assure no double box

2) leave to chance and take risk of double box

 

Decisions :(

Main account BS Box. I want the blowout spray and mascara.

 

Second sub- leave to chance in the hopes of getting all five samples selected by the cupcake lady. Her featured items seem way more interesting than the sample choices.

I think I will pick BS box on my second account, too.
I hate the possibility to get Real Chemistry peel again. My last experience was too annoying, I would never put that thing on my face again.

I have picked samples that I already received/reviewed, or in the curated boxes I've picked have had samples I've already received/reviewed. Once a curated box I chose had 2 samples I had already reviewed. Each time I have emailed CS and had the points awarded to me, no problem. So I wouldn't let fear of losing the review points affect your decision.

:P   That warning is all over the place here in CA....every office building you go into has something similar posted on the window (that chemicals known to cause cancer are in the building).   I've gotten so used to it I just ignore it now. 

 

It is weird about different states having different rules.  I remember when they first removed something in hairsprays that was supposed to me depleting the ozone layer.  It was still possible to buy hairsprays with those ingredients in neighboring states.  But I guess the ozone layer right above CA was going to be okay (you know, so long as none of the hairspray chemicals drifted across state lines).

Thanks for letting me know - in that case, I will go with my original plan :)

It's funny that two of the samples were things I got and hated at first. Naobay almost went in the trash but came to grow on me. I got 3 minute peel on both accounts. Last night I thought I had some left but guess i used it up. I'm tempted to ask for a third tube.

 I have not gotten an email and don't want to risk goofing it up and being told my choice was not recorded.

I didn't get an email, but I was able to make a choice (I used last month's email with the link).  I received my confirmation email too, verifying that I got it.

Correct me if I am wrong but back in December didn't people get confirmation emails only to have their PYS not show up in their final box page. Then CS basically scolded them for using an old email link, saying that the selection could not be verified. I've never personally had a problem using a cheat but it seemed like they were cracking down on this.

I just sent them an email with my sample choices for both accounts.

I am afraid to mess with their system since they became less solution oriented recently. Back in the day when they were actually helpful, I used a previous month's link and they did not send me the PYS even though I got the confirmation. Then told me that they won't send since I did it before they sent me the e-mail :/

Maybe you should double check with them and make sure they will send it.

 I never had that happen to me and I have never been scolded by CS at all.  I am not sure if they got the verification email or not.

 

If I get a confirmation email, then it is verified.   I've been doing this for the last several boxes, as my emails always come way too late.   I think whatever bug they had in their system, they fixed it - I doubt that it is a "cheat" when the link goes directly to the actual page!

 

I feel comfortable doing this - everyone needs to do what is best for them

Never had an issue with doing it this way.
