Birchbox April 2016 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

For sure i'm choosing the rms wipes, that is the only thing I'm remotely interested in. The box is super pretty this month. The curated box is boring.

I'll do the wipes in my main box and the trio in my other box. I might buy the featured box though, I have to see if I have that LG item already.

It's hard for me this month. I like briogeo as a brand but not sure if I need that. The tiny palette is cute. And the wipes are enticing. I'd like 3/5 in the curated box and it looks like a good value this month. Decisions decisions...

I think I will once again go with the curated. Laura Geller was on my beauty bucket list of brands to try.

Looking forward to trying the wipes! I saw them in a refinery29 article some time ago and was interested. Just wish they'd give more than two! I guess that qualifies as multi use, but barely.

I'm not interested in the curated box. The sample choices are making me conflicted though. The wipes sound interesting but there's only two of them. I generally prefer makeup samples but the color of the lip product is meh. I'm hoping it's more purple than pink. The hair mask is also okay but I've sampled it before. So I'll probably go for the hair or makeup item. However leaving my boxes to chance has been going pretty well so far.

I'll probably choose the hair mask on one account and the trio on the other account. I like the curated box, but I don't know if I like it enough to chose it. (The Dr. Jart product seems interesting though!)

While probably not the most practical item, I am going to pick the trio. The packaging is cute! The wipes are something I know I probably won't get around to using, and I have tried that hair mask many times (but it is good if anyone was thinking of choosing that).

This is the FIRST time in almost a year that I actually want the curated box, which is great since I'm not interested in any of the PYS this time around. Beautiful boxes!!

The boxes are super cute this month! I am once again displeased with the sample choice and the curated box. Every month I see them and there is nothing that I'm excited about. I will probably go with the wipes for my PYS.

Is it sad that I am more excited for the boxes than the samples that will come in them?

Samples get smaller every month. I received my March box today and they were so tiny, almost all 1 time use :/
The sample choice options also look so small. I miss the good old days of full size/large deluxe PYS.

I feel like I may be done with BB after my annual sub ends. The sample size and the CS issues are pretty big problems for me, personally.

I feel the same, but am only staying for the point system. I have a feeling though they will mess with that soon, too :/

Yah, agreed. They stopped doing points for sharing and they stopped giving points for the month-to-month sub. There are fewer discount codes as well. For me, I'm just really tired of dealing with impressively rude CS reps any time I have to email them.

If they ever got rid of the points system, I would be done so fast. Honestly I like my boxes, but with the samples getting smaller, like teeny tiny smaller, I can't justify anything more then the $5 a month it works out to be after points.

Does anyone know what color the Laura Gellar is? The blushes are on sale during the 21 Days of Beauty and I don't want to purchase a duplicate :)

 

You'll receive either Pink Grapefruit or Tropic Hues.

 

The boxes are just too pretty this month, I love the box from last year that Rifle Co. so its nice to get another one.

I agree with y'all- the samples are getting so teeny tiny now and those discount codes are far and few between now. I also don't like the fact that I never get more than 5 items in a box now where I used to get 6-7 at least once in awhile. Once in awhile I'd get a full sized product too and that hasn't happened in a long time, the last one being a mally lipgloss several months ago I believe. I get better and bigger samples in my Mystery Packs than I do my monthly birchboxes! Seriously!  And if they do away with the points or start giving us less points I will be completely done with them too. I already place less orders with them than I used to due to the lack of coupon codes.

    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • 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.
