Birchbox June 2015 (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Well - i think Birchbox was drunk when completing my box. I got so excited because I got a big white box and thought I had won the contest....but they had just mailed my eye gels seperate. But my box is completely different from the website and has three repeat products, excluding Marcelle BB Cream and Supergoop.

 

Just my luck.

My code was the 10% off $50. My hair tie was brown and rather crappy looking. Blue Lagoon eyeliner. This is the most disappointing box to date. Yes. It's actually worse than the Beaver Box. I am sure the other account will get really nice things. BB loves other-me.

I got a 20% off of 50 coupon, so I cashed out my points and cancelled my subscription.

 

I have very short hair (listed that way in my profile since day one) and they sent me hair ties. I get some sort of blow dry protector spray or hair spray in almost every single box. While I do blow dry my hair, I just... I don't need that many blow dry sprays! I've gotten four since I signed up in November! 

 

While I've found a few products that I absolutely love, most of it has been either average or a total miss. I'm also switching to just buying cruelty-free brands and Birchbox doesn't give you that option yet. They've talked about it, but haven't implemented it.

 

So it's goodbye for me, for now. I might try out Petit Vour, but the reviews of their boxes don't thrill me too much.

 

I'm kinda bummed.

Does anyone know what the beta upgrade products are? My box won't show what I'm getting :(

From all the box pages, these seem like the upgraded products. Looks like they might be doing variations this month instead of everyone getting the same thing? A lot of the upgraded boxes have the Mally blush, though.

I thought everyone was getting the eyeko liner? I'm not :( I'm not impressed with the upgrade again this month. Another bold lip color & a blush. I'm going back to the basic box.

I also got box 8 yesterday: https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/june-2015/june-2015-bb8

 

It came in the Adventure box.  My eyeliner was blue lagoon and my pony tail holder was a dark purple. 

 

I'm also getting a $1 box and an upgraded box I hope those have the mulberry and indigo eyeliners, then I'll have the full set. 

 

Like I NEED more freaking eyeliners.

I just got both of my boxes. 

 

Codes: one for 20% off a $50 shop purchase, one for 10% off a $50 shop purchase

 

I got one Mulberry liner and one Blue Lagoon. My Emijay tie is light blue and my ponytail holder is fuscia. Overall, I like these boxes more in person than I did in the previews. I'm not sure that I'll use the Temple shampoo/conditioner, but at least there was no perfume.

OK forgive me guys I have been MIA since November and just resubbed last month to BB. I can see which box I'm getting this month (FINALLY!!) and it has 7 items, what's up with that?? I didn't upgrade either. But how do I find out which box # this is? Everything has changed lol. 

 

Also, what's the prize stuff I keep reading about? I tried to go back and figure it out but couldn't find anything.

They included hair accessories as a bonus this month so everyone seems to be getting 7 items. 

 

The prize stuff turned out to be a bust. In your box you should have a card with a code. You can win items in the shop, but most people are getting 10% off a purchase over $50. This is lame because in a few weeks anniversary codes will start working again and you should be able to get 20-25% off  $35.  Some people on MUT did win a benefits product by entering a contest a few weeks back.

 

As to box number, I think it appears in your url when you are looking at your box page, but I've never been able to figure it out that way. Normally I just scroll through all the combos. There was a link for that pasted earlier in this thread. 

 

The only other interesting things you missed was something called Beaver Shampoo that appeared in everyone's box a couple of months ago.  <_<

Lucky! I decided not to pick when my PYS email came through, but I think regardless of if I pick or not, Birchbox will still send me a crappy box lol.

I got the adventure box...

- Vasanti scrub

- Supergoop eye cream

- Dr. Jart Night BB cream

- Coastal Scents Revealed 3 quad

- Gold Emi Jay hair tie

 

I have been on a really long break from birchbox, I only resubbed to get the beauty blender.  When I first got this box I was like OH RIGHT, this is why I don't need birchbox in my life, because it was basically a box of the usual suspects.  But looking at it closer, it's kind of cool that the supergoop is an eye cream and that the Dr. Jart is for overnight wear.  And even though I've tried the vasanti scrub multiple times, at least its a great product in a generous size.  So I'm not too disappointed.  I should still cancel soon though, I really don't need more samples until I use everything else up.

So I complained about my box not having a clicky truck early in the week... the clicky truck showed up late Monday afternoon. I got an email on Wednesday saying it had shipped and it STILL is stuck in Mt.Juliet/hasn't moved at all. Shows an expected delivery date of 16-17 which is a solid 7 days later than I generally get mine.

 

Also, when I check the narvar site, it pops this up now (see attached - it didn't show up yesterday) so I feel like something really funky is going on.

Mine seems super late this month too.  It was "born" on June 10th at like 1 in the morning and hasn't moved yet.  Usually I have my BB around now or even earlier.  Unless I've won something (I signed up for the Benefit thing) I'm not really happy about this month.

My box was shipped on the 8th and apparently won't get here until the 17th.

 

It's like they know I'm a naturally impatient person and are testing me :lol:

I received my box today and that was a surprise because they said next week. I received the Marcelle eyeliner in purple, which is a pretty, deep color. My code was for 20% off $50. I'm cashing in my points and cancelling, just too many items I don't keep from each box and so tired of shampoo, conditioner and items for blow dried hair.

I used my last 100 points and cancelled today, too.  For exactly the reasons you state. Even with the great point system it's just not worth the hassle.  I am still happy with GB and PSMH so I can easily do without all the tiny BB samples.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
