December 2015 Birchbox *Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

of course they put a good looking box in their ad, lol. I never get boxes that good.No one would sign up if they showed a box that is more realistic to what they really send out!

I hope those aren't the only choices! Booooring.

Maybe the curated box will be fantastic this month. 

 

Let's all hope for a Christmas miracle.  :rolleyes:

I actually don't mind little Coastal Scents samples.

 

Me neither but what happened to the 4 shadow samples? Now only two per sample?

They look to be bigger. At least the one quad sample I have from Coastal Scents is super tiny (and everyone wants to talk about theBalm for small samples!). I do really like the mauve/pink pair.

 

How does this sample choice work? Do I get to pick a for sure item for my box each month? I kinda think I got the jist and super bummed I got stuck with a shadowstick this month instead of a fabulous red lippie because of not realizing I could choose.

Each month around 26th, Birchbox used to send sample choice emails to subscribers with a unique sample choice link. This month they changed the system and integrated the sample choice to our accounts, under "Your Box" tab. Here is a screenshot to make it easier to see:

During the sample choice day, click on the circled option "Customize your next month's box" and then you can pick the sample you want and also the add-ons.

After you save your choice, you are supposed to receive a confirmation email.

 

Hope this helps.

Does anyone know when the December PYS videos are posted? I thought they'd be up by now. I need to decide if I want to keep my sub or not.

That box looks so cute! Not super excited about the PYS, hopefully there will be more color options or an amazing guest box. CS as Coastal Scents? Probably, but it would be interesting if it was another brand though that I have never tried.

I think this CS is different. Coastal Scents logo is not like this, but I can't find this logo online. 

I would definitely go for Serge Normant, their products are usually good.

I just stalked the internet and really can't find anything with that logo. Strange.

I'm underwhelmed too. And it's a big mistake to post the video before the BB Plus page is up. They're giving me too much time to talk myself out of that scarf.

I can't access the add ons yet.  If they aren't going to have the stuff available they shouldn't put up the video.

 

Edit:  I posted this before I saw the above post.  Moderators, feel free to delete it.

    • We have rounded up not one, but five easy ways to draw that fine stroke of liner on your lid. You can use your pencil, liquid, gel or pen eyeliners and try out any of these five ways to apply eyeliner like a pro. So grab your eyeliner and take a look at five different ways to work the stunning eyeliner look in one go.     
    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! I think so!  My hair has been a disaster, an absolute mess. It just needs better care. It is long, and I don't want to cut it until I use up all my backlog of hair products. It tangles so badly. I can't comb through the tangles, and they just build up into matted sections. It is just awful. Hair products don't help. My hair got really badly tangled and matted this week. My scalp was also irritated from using too much harsh shampoo. I decided to wait an extra day before washing it again, to let the natural oils soothe my dry and itchy scalp. Ironically, the natural oils also allowed me to detangle my hair, even where conditioners won't do it. It still took an hour and 40 minutes to get the tangles out, I kid you not, but at least I was able to do it. It's ironic that the solution to my problem wasn't buying a product, but just leaving my hair alone and letting my body heal itself.  Also I just had a little haul, but don't worry - it's within my No Buy rules. Time to replace my deodorant. I got an Avon Rare Pearls roll on. Three years ago, I got a stack of Rare Pearls sample cards from the Avon lady, and I thought if I got the deo to match, it would finally motivate me to use them up. While I was looking through the Avon site, I saw that Avon has some really pretty new dental care products. I got myself a really pretty pink toothbrush that has special bristles and Himalayan pink salt! I'm excited, because my teeth are bad and need more care, and this will be nice for me. It's been a while since I got a new toothbrush. The Avon lady had a code to get belif samples too - is belif part of Avon now? No - I jut checked - Avon was bought by the company that makes belif, apparently, and also makes History of Whoo! History of Whoo is one of my dream brands, and I've always wanted to try it. (It's an expensive, beautifully packaged Korean line of products that look like they are made for a Korean princess or empress.) Well that was a good guilt free haul! Very interesting and productive No Buy night.
