Birchbox July 2016 spoilers

Recommended Posts

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?

Arrow antiperspirant deodorant is really good, it looks tiny but goes a long way.

I also recommend Marvis toothpaste.

I am so glad I did not sign up for the past two boxes (june and july) as there aren't any boxes I've seen posted online that I covet.

Just FYI I was able to review my boxes this morning. One curated, one not. Get those points before 7/11!

It says I can review for points, but I am not getting the full review screen or points for the review I submitted. Blah.

My review page still has stars and a box instead of questions.  I think it will only work if you get an email asking if you want to peek at your page.  And those only come out after it ships.  With my luck mine won't ship until the 12th. :(

Looks like I'm getting the Smashbox mascara instead of the Marcelle I selected :( I was able to review my box though. Also getting

Raw Sprirt fragrance-I like trying new scents, so I don't mind perfume samples

MDSolarSciences sunscreen-I will use, but not excited about

BalanceMe Radience Face Mask-happy about this :)

Marcelle Micellar water-another think I will use but am not especially excited about

I am finding it so unfair some people are able to review their boxes early- and if they had more than 5 items they get the correct amount of points (ie 70 for 7 items)- when people like me who's curated box has shipped but am not able to review for points before "the deadline"--- not sure if this means those able to review before July 11 will also get to review their Aug boxes, or if they just get an extra $2 out of it but still = unfair to me.

Maybe if you email them they'll slip you a few extra points, you never know. I used to email Ipsy customer service all the time, not just for missing items but also out of curiousity, like why didn't I get that makeup brush when my profile says I prefer that over the face moisturizer they send me four months in a row? You know, just silly stuff like that.

 

ETA I know with bb customer service its probably not the same but it doesn't hurt to reach out to them.

mine shipped out and I have the same thing you do :( 

I sent an email complaining about it - along with their original email about the changes in the point system.  We are allowed 5 more reviews.....

If you are seeing stars on your review page you might want to keep checking back.  My box finally shipped and I was able to review for points.

Yes, my box shipped yesterday and today I have the regular review page up.

I was able to review today, too. Although I have to say I felt kind of dishonest giving a review without trying the products.

I might stick around for 1 more month depending on the curated box or the PYS. I like the element of surprise, although this month's box was completely off for me.

I finally got the peek at your box email and I was able to review my products. I too have the wrong mascara choice. I plan to contact them tomorrow and see what they do. Previously they were great about correcting these kind of mistakes. I don't know what they will do, but if I am not sent the right mascara or offered points, I will not be happy. What is the point in being an Ace and having sample pick and then they don't honor it. My yearly is till November and I plan to stay till then.

I was able to review my box today for 70 points. My mascara sample choice was correct on the spoiler email too. We'll see what actually shows up.

So I was checking out the tracking on my July box and it actually has tracking for 2 packages the first one is dated 2/9/15 and is going to Seattle, WA and the second one is actually my box going to TN....how weird, tracking glitch I guess?

That used to happen a lot, I think they're reusing tracking numbers, the date from the top one is last year so I don't think you have to worry about it.

I have a real problem with the way they handled the points change. They knew most people wouldn't get their box before July 11th. To be fair to all subscribers, they should have made the change start August 1st. Not only that, the box on my second account has five measly items. I'm pretty sure one will be a foil packet (Klorane conditioner) and the others are really boring. Clinique soap, Smashbox mascara, Klorane shampoo, and yet another Coola sunscreen.

 

I'm so annoyed I will be cashing out my points and cancelling both accounts. Birchbox is so out of touch. Oh, and giving new subscribers 200 points?? Desperate and misguided. They should be trying to keep their current customers happy as well. I have spent a lot of money in their shop, but those days are over.

In regards to the "new annual subscriptions get 200 points" - I think they are desperate for some cash flow with so many people leaving and want that year of $$ up front. If they were struggling before I can't imagine they are doing any better now.

Just as an FYI..if you are month to month, the FREE100 code worked when I changed my mind about keeping my birchbox another month...I might have cancelled, gotten this email a few minutes later, resubscribed, and gotten all 100 extra points. I'll take the incentive to stay one more month!

 

But now I'm 7 points short of an even number and $10 more birchbox dollars.

You can use points in any amount now.

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
