Birchbox May 2015 (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Try clicking that arrow to the right, you might be getting other stuff! Mine had two more items that I couldn't see at first. 

 

Well, goodness gracious, you are right! There was a conditioner and some sort of Living Proof styling treatment hiding! Thanks for the tip. 

 

Also, I retract my gripe. This is an awesome month for me. It is equal to December 2014, which has been my best box since I reactivated my sub. 

 

Updated list:

 

Benefit Porefessional (I've used this before, but it is handy to have a small one)

Real Chemistry peel (my PYS)

Marcelle Hydra-C Gel (I'll definitely try it)

Mally Beauty Eyeliner (my overall happiness will be based on the color I get, but overall this is good)

Living Proof Restore shampoo (cool, love hair stuff, except Beaver...)

Living Proof Restore conditioner

Living Proof Restore repair lotion

I am getting a great box but for some reason it switched the peel to the naobay. My hair doesn't do beach spray or oils so this was a perfectly fine swap.  I hope this box doesn't change. It has amika, clay mask, porefessionals and a mascara.

I have the full size of that Marcelle clay mask, it's really good.

Wow! Lucky you :) This is an awesome box, 7 items and no perfume.

I hope that Marcelle gel is good, I will receive 2 of it.

I figured it out. Blah, I think I was better off not knowing. PYS Macadamia oil, yogini, Reveal 3, Smashbox photo finish water primer, Marcelle Hydrating gel

We're box twins! My last two months have been amazing so I was due for a bummer box too. I do need a new primer and moisturizer so the smash ix and Marcella are good fits for me.

I definitely prefer gel moisturizers, so I'll use it somewhere. I get picky about the stuff I put on my face (scent, etc), so if it doesn't seem like it will cooperate with my skin, I'll still use it on my hands or heels. 

 

I was so excited about no perfume. I don't wear perfume at all, so it is just a waste for me.

Box quadruplets! I'm actually looking forward to trying out the Smashbox primer water since it is apparently all the rage with beauty bloggers/youtubers. AIso, I've been subbed to birchbox since October and this will be my first Harvey Prince perfume (surprised I have been able to dodge getting one so far).

 

So no Beaver shampoo/conditioner sightings so far. Do you think BB pulled the samples because of the possible carcinogen in the ingredients?

Hrm one of my cheats doesn't show my confirmed PYS choice. And another box cheat shows a sample I got in March, soooo I hope there are some updates still to come.

hmm, no boxes loaded for me. I'm getting a plus item on one of the boxes and have upgraded the other to get the 2 full size items. I'm wondering if that is holding things up.

I think the beaver fever was to off-set the cost of marketing the Mad Men themed boxes. All this month's samples were selected by that cupcake blogger/ author. There was no way she would pick some random chinese product for her boxes.

I'm getting this box too and I'm and soooo excited! I will actually use every single product this month! I don't think I've ever had that happen before! I have wanted to try everything in this box except for the Marcelle Hydra-C Gel, but that's only because I've never heard of it before. My skin is super dry so I'm so excited for it. I didn't think another box would ever top a couple months back when I got a beauty blender, but for me this is just like absolutely perfect!

 

I swear if this bx changes i am going to be soooo mad! I've never had my bx change before so I'm feeling pretty good that this is most likely the box I'm getting though.

From what people have been posting about what's in their boxes I have to say that they should really partner with bloggers more often because we actually get good products sent to us!

- Marcelle Hydra-C 24H moisture gel

- Mally Beauty Evercolor liner (this will probably be full-sized, super pumped)

Totally forgot that this month's samples were hand picked by the cupcake blogger! Yay and thumbs up to the cupcake gal and to more future blogger collaborations!

I am pleasantly surprised with my box for a random reason.  I picked the Real Chemistry Peel as my PYS just because it's good to have to use after a long flight to refresh the skin a bit.  I already have 1 but have 2 upcoming flights, so it was practical.  Yesterday I took my 11 yo daughter to get a haircut.  Unlike my fine, straight hair she has think, shiny hair that's full of body.  The hairdresser used a bit of oil on her hair after she styled it and said I may want to get something similar.  My 1st thought was "[email protected]!  I should have picked the Macadamia Oil for my PYS".  Well, I got it!  I never picked it because I didn't think it would work with my hair. Yay! It will also be small enough to travel with on vacation.  I also, got the Mally liner, Naobay lotion (also good for travel) and Porefessional which I JUST started using from another box and liked.  I am still letting this sub go when it ends in June, but I am happy I will not go out too bitter! *LOL*

Once again, I realize I have a love/hate relationship with Birchbox.  I peeked at my account and here's what I will be getting:

 

HP Yogini....seriously, these guys are the new Juicy perfume for me.  I just can't with this.

Smashbox Primer Water- stupidly excited to try this, but trying to keep in mind the sample will be tiny as hell

Marcelle Hydrating Gel- if I hadn't bought some skin care items yesterday, I'd be more excited about this

Macadamia Oil (PYS)- perfect for me when I go home to NY since my mother doesn't believe in conditioner

Revealed 3- trying to keep an open mind on this one, but have been disappointed in the past with them

 

If I didn't have seven more months on my subscription, between last month and this month, I would cancel...probably....

I wasn't very happy when I checked the cheat last night because I didn't choose a sample and I hoped to receive newer products like the living proof. 

 

Currently I am going to get:

-Number 4 prep&protect

-Juice beauty CC cream

-Naobay lotion (this was the thing I wanted least! I have received the other naobay lotion and I thought it smelled like treesap)

-Harvey Prince Sincerely

-Coastal scents revealed 3 (not really an eyeshadow person, but I am hoping for some pretty colors I can wear)

 

Then I thought it over today and my box is okay. I actually like all the leave in conditioner hair products I have received from birchbox. I also always use all the lotion I get, even if it smells bad, and I like to try new BB and CC creams. I guess the coastal scents is new and my profile does have makeup checked. On the other hand, I still don't like perfume samples.

 

Oh and on the plus side I am not getting sunscreen.

Agreed. After marinating on it, I think this is my best box so far. I really hope it doesn't change on us.

I have 2 accounts, but only one has the items listed:

 

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

Vasanti Brighten Up Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

Beauty Protector Beauty Wash Body Cleanser

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette

Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Mist (PYS) 

 

This is my 4th box under this account and the first one I'm really excited about. Almost seems like they paid attention to my profile. I hope the Revealed colors are different from the POP palette from last month.

    • Now I'm happy because I bought an expensive set of cosmetics and a large organizer. I work as a makeup artist and have long dreamed of changing my professional tools and cosmetics. Thanks to payday loan company North Carolina, my dream came true. I think a loan is a good way to fulfill your dreams.
    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!
