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 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. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
