Birchbox March 2016 **Spoilers**

Recommended Posts

I left it to chance too. I am indifferent to the sample choice options, and have already received the Amika and No.4 anyway, so the Parlor is the only one I might randomly get. I wavered on the curated box- I'd like the Kiehl's and the lipstick, but the others weren't particularly calling my name.

 

It's funny though- I think if the items in the curated one ended up being my box, I'd think it was a great box and be happy about it. It'd be an exciting "surprise" box, but not exciting enough for me to pick it ahead of time. Is that completely nuts?

Thanks for posting @@H_D! Sometimes the multiple posts just happens. I deleted the multiples.

 Thank you! :)

Mine are pretty good this month. I was worried about getting a duplicate box because I chose the Parlor in both accounts.

Box 1:

Parlor shampoo and conditioner

Milk lip crayon

Clarisonic cleanser

Trestique shadow crayon

Wilma Schumann collagen eye pads

Box 2:

Parlor shampoo and conditioner

The Balm Stainiac (my mini of this just ran out)

Cargo eye shadow

Kiehl's moisturizer

Perfume (bleh)

Looks like I'll get to review the Parlor products separately so I get 70 points for this box! Whohoo

If SB eyeshadow trio is the same, as the one in the featured box, and CR illuminator will go up for swaps, since I already have it. 

 

I'll make a swap thread in a few mins.

I am absolutely SHOCKED I did not get the Parlor stuff even though I left it up to chance. And if this box is actually what I get, I will be happy. I am especially excited about the shadow crayon, as I wanted to try this brand. I am happy with my box!!

 

The Balm Stainiac- these are just okay for me.

 

Trestique color and smudge shadow crayon-I hope I get a great color (want the pink pearl one the most)

 

Wilma Collagen eye pads- meh I don't really use things like this

 

Coola SPF 30 makeup setting spray- sounds interesting! I like the other Coola products I've tried

 

No. 4 Flouro Elixer restore and repair oil- I like a few No. 4 products and love hair oils so I am excited to try this!

Box twins. I hatehatehate perfume samples, but at least it's a 7-item box, so we get 70 points this month.

 

I'm interested to see how the miracle balm works. My skin splits something fierce in the winter, and the only thing that works is the nipple cream I used while breastfeeding. I know, I know...it is very weird to tell people to try nipple cream for chapped lips and split fingertips LOL but it works!

I received the same box as H_D and I also left mine to chance. I'm pretty happy! I managed to dodge the shampoos and the perfumes!

 

The Balm Stainiac- I like The Balm brand and I generally like lip products. However I'll have to see how this applies and what the color looks like on me. 

 

Trestique color and smudge shadow crayon- I've gotten these from Ipsy before. They aren't bad but I hope to get a color I don't have. I probably want the pink the most. They are great to throw in a travel bag. 

 

Wilma Collagen eye pads- I don't really use/need eye pads but I'll use them for the heck of it. 

 

Coola SPF 30 makeup setting spray- I like setting sprays and I'm always happy when SPF is included to protect my fair ginger skin. 

 

No. 4 Flouro Elixer restore and repair oil- As much as I've complained about spray type products I finally used my Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect and it did a great job on my hair. I still don't like the smell of it though but it's not as strong as other brands they've sent me. I love hair oils so I look forward to getting this.

Most of the box combinations work: https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/march-2016/march-2016-bb1

 

This seems like a nice month, most of the boxes are 6-7 items :)

Also, I like all of these new brands/products.

 

All except mine, lol! I used to get 6-7 items all the time in my first year of BB but these days, I think I've gotten a couple 6 items over the past year and a half and haven't gotten a 7 item one in over a year at least.

I'm getting the curated box on one account and I picked the Parlour samples on the other. I was going to go to one account this month, but I'm actually in the market for some new shampoo/conditioner, and I like the other Parlour products that BB has sent, so I'm looking forward to trying them. I'm also getting the trestique shadow stick in that box, so I've got my fingers crossed for a good color... That will make or break the box!

I'm not very lucky in terms of getting 6-7 item boxes, either.

My box contents are not loaded yet, hope I get a good one.

Yay- no perfume samplers this month. :lol:

 

I bought the curated box (because I forgot all about picking a sample this month). In my regular box I am getting (if it doesn't change):

 

Benefit the Porefessional Wipe Out Pore Cleansing Masks

Benefit the Porefessional Matte Rescue Mattifying Gel

Clarisonic Sonic Radiance AM Skin Illuminating Cleanser

Beautiful Nutrition Healthy Hair Diet Shampoo

Beautiful Nutrition Healthy Hair Diet Conditioner

Cargo Land Down Under Eyeshadow Palette

 

Not bad- I am willing to try some of these products.

My box is a fail this month:

 

The Balm Stainiac-I tried this before and didn't care for it

FHI thermal heat-activated conditioner-blah

Trestique color and smudge shadow crayon-blah

Wilma Schumann hydrating collagen eye pads-will use, but not exciting

Amika dry shampoo-my PYS which I've used before and liked

 

Just overall not an exciting box this month.

    • 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! 
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.  
    • Hi guys. Well I am a 37 year old woman and I looked into a Makeup Academy when I was in my early 20s but it was too expensive for me to afford at the time. A little background on me. I never had anyone to teach me how to do makeup. My mom was NOT a girly girl so I had no real feminine influence lol. I have never tried to do anyone's makeup because I lack the confidence. But I would really like to learn. My question is, has anyone here started Makeup school at a later age? Were you in school with mostly younger folks and how did it work out for you? I guess my question is, is Age a disadvantage in this industry? Thanks!
