Birchbox July 2016 spoilers

Recommended Posts

Holy hamrolls, my July box link is already loaded!!!

 

I'm getting:

 

Shiseido ULTIMUNE EYE Power Infusing Eye Concentrate

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara

Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer

Davines This Is a Sea Salt Spray

COOLA® SPF 50 Sport - Mango

 

(in light of the 5 review lifetime cap going into effect this month, it seems kind of a dick move for Birchbox to make this month's box a 6 item one...)

 

In spite of the points change, this is actually a pretty good box for me. I'm sure one of the Shiseido products is a foil, but that's ok, it's a high-end brand and one I like. The Marcelle was my sample choice. I'm super excited for the Dr.Jart; I've been hoping Sephora would release the water drop as a deluxe sample promo or points reward or something, so getting it in my BB is even better. The Davines I already got in this summer's LE box, but it's a product I like. The Coola is the only product I really don't care about - thanks to Birchbox I have the entire skittles rainbow of Coola scents.

I've got both those Shiseido products before from Birchbox and they were NOT foils!

Here's my box:

lol of COURSE it's 7 items

 

Of course there is perfume... AND shampoo and....conditioner (at least I got a matching set this time) and of course I got Supergoop cause it's not a birchbox without some sort of SPF from Coola or SuperGoop.

 

All in all I don't mind perfumes, but I have a feeling they'll show up a lot. The mask is good for me. I've tried the supergoop cc cream in one of my past Birchboxes on another account. I'm very tired of shampoo and conditioner in my Birchboxes, this is the fifth month in a row I've received shampoo/conditioner.

 

I'm happy about the Balance Me mask and the Dr. Jart+ water drop. I don't have overly dry skin but I like the brand.

With the point change happening on the 11th and reviews can be done starting on the 10th, does anyone else think that we might be able to get points for reviewing this month's box on the 10th?

 

And then do our last 5 reviews next month.  I know I'm gonna try it.

Excited about my seven item box! Wish I would've gotten the dr. jart water drop moisturizer. 

 

Also, I am typically able to review my boxes before the 10th of the month, so I would say to review your samples before you get your box so that august can be your last month!

Nice boxes with ORIBE! I absolutely love the line. I just got my order. I had to reorder the conditioner. I try and split the shampoo and conditioner orders in two so it's not so much at once. Somehow makes me feel better. :D

This occurred to me too. It's possible, and I know I'll be checking my box link everyday between now and the 10th to see if the reviews are open. Right now, the review button is present for each item on my box page, but when I click it it takes me to the "regular" review page, the one with just a space to type a review and a title, NOT the one with all the questions (i.e., "Have you used products from this brand before?"). From previous experience I know we do not earn points from filling out the regular review page (unless everything is changing now, which I suppose is possible).

Honestly disappointed in both my boxes this month. Only 5 item box and I got the micellar water in both boxes only 2 months ago!!! I guess they can give us dupes now that there is no points? Or I can only do 4 reviews before cancelling? This is the month to month that I am def cancelling! This month was to show they were improving but I dislike them both but will keep the yearly I have until it runs out. Also I see someone is getting a raw spirit perfume! I love those and I have some other one :/ disappointed

Pretty excited for my box given the fact I didn't choose a curated box this month!
Not too sure about the liquid soap from Clinique or the perfume, but excited about everything else

I don't think mine is right. They have the smash box mascara instead of my pick, which was the Marcelle. I also got Marcelle 3 in 1, kiehl's serum, MD solar science moisturizer, and L'artisan perfum. Hope it changes. If not I will be contacting them.

I LOVE the marcelle micellar solution, I bought the full size and it lasted me for months. Since I'm holding off on buying from the bb shop I'm using the pink Garnier one, which is still pretty nice but the Marcelle one is my favorite. My preview shows the Smashbox mascara (my pys), clinique charcoal cleansing gel, a LOC gloss pencil, supergoop refresh setting mist (love this stuff), and lulu organics hair powder. A well rounded box imo, I hate that they send me hair stuff that I won't ever use but if the clinique cleansing gel is awesome I won't complain too much.

I've had the Shiseido before and the regular serum lasted me for several weeks of daily use! 

 

On the other hand, I feel like writing Birchbox and telling them not to bother mailing mine this month:

-Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil

-MD Solar Sciences Sunscreen

-Smashbox XRated Mascara (my choice)

-Coola After Sun Lotion (why do I need this if I used your freakin sunscreen?? Oh because that’s only enough to cover my elbow)

-Benefit Gimme Brow

This is honestly the first time in 2 years that I’ve hated my box.

I'm not happy with my Birchbox at all this month.

 

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap- I have never been impressed by a Clinique skincare item so I don't have much hope for this.

 

dr.brandt PoreDermabrasion- dr.brandt has become one of those brands I seem to frequently have samples lying around of. I really like the way scrubby stuff makes my face feel afterwards but to be honest it's not the best for your face so I tend to avoid it or rarely use it. This will probably be used but it's not exciting or anything new.

 

Smashbox Cosmetics X-Rated Mascara- I didn't pick a sample this month hoping I would get a nice box as a result. I wasn't particularly interested in any of the choices either. I received this mascara a few months back from ipsy. It will be used and it's not an awful mascara but it's not in my top ten or anything either. 

 

Tocca Eau de Parfum, Bianca- I hate being sent fragrance samples. I really do. However I just realized this one is described as lemon and citrus so I'm suddenly curious. The only perfumes I wear are light fruit scented ones so maybe this one could be a winner (but I doubt it). 

 

Cargo Blush and Bronzer Duo- I know it's summertime and all but the subscription boxes are getting a little ridiculous with the bronzer and sunscreen. I'm not at all interested in these colors. It looks like the blush is probably going to be hot pink (sigh). I have so many hot pink blushes. I don't even wear hot pink blush. I prefer peachy orange shades or nudes. I wish subscription boxes would at least let you check off colors you prefer for certain products as a guideline but that would probably be overly complicated. 

 

Overall I'm not really excited about anything. I kind of want to see what the perfume smells like but I still hate being sent a perfume sample as one of my five items. The mascara is useful and the scrub will probably get used eventually but that's about it. From what others are posting though I'm not seeing really anything I want. Seriously debating cancelling. The points are gone, the boxes are meh, and they recently screwed up my shop order so my opinion of Birchbox is at an all time low right now.

well, if this is my box, I am so happy it is my last month. 

 

dr.brandt PoreDermabrasion - ugh.  Can I say how much I dislike getting dr brandt samples?
MD Solar Science Moisturizer ~ meh.
Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara
Tocca Eau de Parfum, Bianca ~ BIG MEH.  I KEEP GETTING PERFUME SAMPLES.
Cargo Blush and Bronzer Duo ~  Do I get both?  Just one?

 

Now, last month, when I looked at my box early like this, I had some great items in there - but then as the 10th rolled around, it did change.  So, I hope this isn't my box.  I would like to go out with a positive vibe with BB and be open to re-subbing, but wow.  This box just leaves me cold.

The sunshine oil smells really nice ~ I used it as a hair oil and also to moisturize my cuticles and elbows.   The Gimme Brow is one of the better brow products out there ~ I hate the look of drawn on, heavy brows, but this one is nice and very natural looking ~ helps fill in some spaces or tames brows

What the heck Birchbox?

I would LOVE a Bianca sample, it's one of the only Tocca girls I like.
Instead I have

Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil (oily skin, please, NO MORE OIL ANYTHING)

MDsolarsciences sunscreen (blah)

Smashbox Mascara-nope there's a reason I didn't pick a sample!!

Coola Aftersun lotion -the only thing I will possibly use

Benefit Gimme brow thickener..dear god no. I need this like a hole in the head, mine are thick enough! Plus it will likely be a color that looks goofy on a redhead.
 

 

It really chaps my hide, too, because I look at the stuff other people are getting that WOULD match my profile, and they hate it, because duh, it doesn't match their choices, it matches mine. Blah.

I love the Bianca, but with your aversion to Rose, it will not be your cup of tea, at it has a pretty prominent rose note in it.

I thought that the cargo was duo, even the samples, but I could be wrong. I actually REALLY like the cargo blush we got awhile back, it stays on really well in the heat for me.

Off topic, but rifle paper company is having a 4th of July sale and marked down many items 20% and you are able to use the code from our rifle paper box!

I just read a post on reddit.  One user claims she got an email saying want to peek at your box page.  This let her review for points.  It only seems to work if you got the curated box.  My page looks normal. I can't guarantee this is legit but you may want to check your box page if you picked the curated.

Thanks for the tip!

 

I saw this and went straight to my BB account.  I picked the curated box this month and was just able to review all my items for points.  7 products = 70 points.  Not bad.  

 

Now if they have a good PYS or curated box again next month, I should be able to get my last 5 reviews then. And I might stick around to see what the next month after that holds before canceling since I'm a little sad to see this sub go.

Some of you have some good boxes.  Would love to try the Shiseido samples.

  I got a 5 item box.  2 hair care items again, shampoo and styling lotion, super-goop sunscreen, smash box mascara, and thermal water.  meh.  Thinking about cashing out for rituals shower gel and a facial cleanser after this month.  Anyone have any favorites?

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • 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 ...
