Wow. I like the featured box.  Although if you get one of the shampoo packets you are guaranteed a 6 item box, assuming they let you reveal the foil.  It looks like they are stepping up their game.

I really liked the parlor moisturizing shampoo and conditioner from a few months ago, plus I have fine hair. So I think I'll get that. Looks like a good month!

It's like they want me to cancel. Shampoo... Really.

I admit the featured box looks ok. I am curious about that milk lipstick. I just wouldn't pay $10 for that box in the store so I have to be honest. I think I'm just sampled out. This is my last sub box left. I found an ebook subscription that is like Netflix for books and I'm very tempted to give them my money instead. Hours of fun for 8.99, plus no clutter!

Sample choices not too exciting.  I like the dry shampoo, but I've received that before, so if I pick it I won't get to review for points.  And, if I don't pick it I'll end up with the shampoos because I've already received the dry shampoo...and it goes around....LOL

 

I think I'll probably take the curated box this time.  The lipstick is at least not the standard red or bright pink I always seem to get.

Off topic but for those other readers out there:

 

It is called Scribd. I have a 2 week trial with them right now and it's been awesome so far. Definitely staying with it for at least a month. The whole mortal instruments series is on there. Plus you get 1 audiobook credit each month and unlimited books. Only downside is I have to read on my phone through their app because they don't support my basic kindle. Only supports kindle fire or other devices that can use Apps. Still a great deal since the one book I already finished is 9.99 as an ebook to buy.

I'm thinking about going with the curated box. I don't "need" any of the items but I like the lipstick, eye shadow and moisturizer. The sample choices seem kinda blah to me.

Hmm not very exciting are they? I'll pick the Parlor shampoo and condition since I like the brand, and I'll pick the featured box on my second account.  I've tried #4 and the dry shampoo. I think they're ok products but not very exciting.

I don't use shampoooooooooooo! Why you do me this way BB?

 

I clearly don't know what I'm doing. I would possibly aim for the curated box but have had no luck with pys lately. I'm considering leaving it to chance.

I've found that leaving it to chance gives me the best boxes. I might go for the Milk lip color. I'm interested in trying the brand.

UGH I get shampoo and conditioner in every box already and I don't use shampoo and conditioner! I have gotten all the sample choice options offered already in my boxes except the new Parlor volumizing shampoo so I know if  I leave it up to chance I will get that and I HATE volumizing shampoos because they are always drying. Why couldn't they have offered a non-shampoo option too? I bet I will get a box with all hair products because that is what I despise the most, lol.

 

Birchbox hates me and really wants me to quit. LOL well they will get their wish once my gift sub ends. I was looking at my boxes from a few years back and they used to be soooo good- lots of makeup and deluxe sample sizes, not all these tiny bottles and packets. Sigh. I guess good things always come to an end.

Feeling the same about the samples choices, going to go with the curated box even though I would agree I wouldn't pay $10 for it.

I might stay on another month because I have 57 points still in my account. I'm looking at it like The 50 points from the next box will make the box a free extra with me spending $10 on something I want in the shop.

I don't mind trying new shampoo and conditioner IF they aren't tiny foils that aren't even enough for one use, like those Davines and (forgive me for saying it 'cause the product was awful) Beaver ones they sent out awhile back that were little travel-size bottles. (I have really long curly hair)

 

Strange thing I've found with these subs is that if you say you DON'T use a product, they must just assume it's because you just have found the 'right' one yet. At least it seems that way, because when you choose that option (I don't use X') for something it seems you will see it in EVERY flippin' box they send. (At least that's my opinion based on a marketing perspective, from which I am pretty sure most of these quizzes really are just data mining...)

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
