omg - I am sorry, but I did laugh at the photo.   At least they rubberbanded it to stay on!  haha.  But they cannot walk it up to your door?

 

at least you got yours, mine is still on its way.

Yes, I guess it was too hot to get out of the vehicle and put in on the porch. This box doesn't fit in the mail box, last month it was on the porch, the month before they did the same as this picture. It is comical but by doing this they are only making it easy for someone to steal it.

Glad there are no box bandits in your neighborhood!

 I got my first Play box today!  I got the oily combo one, I must say, for $10, this bag blew Birchbox out of the water.  The  chocolate bronzer is really nice. Very subtle. I liked everything in it.

Same.

I am already very impressed, especially when compared to that terrible July box from Birchbox...

I got mine today. I received the normal/dry box, which does correspond to my current profile settings. When I signed up, I recall picking the "normal" option as I have had a lot of bad experiences with Birchbox when I used "oily" as a profile setting. I do wonder if they will start utilizing shades/skin tones using this model. I'd be thrilled to actually get, well, anything usable for my extremely light skin tone.

 

This is my third play box, and I'm still very happy with the subscription. All of the samples are good sizes, the brands are quality, and the three boxes I've had did not feel like they were full of filler items. I never had a run of three good months in a row with Birchbox (over 36 women's boxes and 12 men's boxes). Even the items I'm not 100% enthralled with are actually decent stuff.

Just got my box in the mail, and since this is my first one, I was happy with it. I have the dry skin version, and got:

 

Benefit Hoola Liquid Matte Bronzer

Beauty Blender Blotterazi (w/ a sample of the liquid sponge cleanser)

First Aid Beauty Cleanser

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

Nest Citrine Fragrance

Ouai Wave Spray

 

I'm looking forward to trying all the items, although I'm not really sure why they sent a Blotting product to someone with dry skin lol. I'm not a fan of Smashbox primers, as they're too silicone based for my tastes. The cleanser is great, as FAB is a wonderful brand that I've worked with many times. I love texturizing sprays, so I'll probably love the Ouai product. The Nest fragrances have never been my cuppa, but the notes listed seem interesting, so I'll try it out. All in all, I'm pleased and I think it's a great value for what you get. I really hope the reviews don't come true for me, and they send me some of the same products over and over again, like I've heard. I can't wait to see what's in next month's box!

I got the normal/dry box as well, which is perfect for my super-dry skin.

 

I wasn't excited about another bronzer, especially after getting the one last month, since I very rarely bronze.  However, the Hoola is a great contour color for me so that was a pleasant surprise.  I'm not sure yet what to do with the Blotterazzi - I might throw it in my purse and see what develops :)  I've never tried the Ouai spray but it's a huge sample!

Just a general comment on liquid bronzers - they are actually really useful as a one-shot eye shade. I can't use bronzers for their intended purpose (oompa loompa effect), but they are great to take on vacation for just a touch of eye color without the risk of an eye shadow palette being destroyed in a suitcase. 

 

I've been using the Bare Minerals one from last month this way since I just can't with summer heat + makeup. It's great!

Has anyone tried using the Blotterazi other than its intended purpose? I find the size and shape of the regular beauty blenders awkward, but I feel like this I could use for blending/application...

I tried the Ouai spray today and it made my hair sticky and crunchy :( I didn't expect this at all. Such a shame, I was looking forward to using it on my straight hair for some volume.

I tried it also and it didn't seem to do much. However my hair is already wavy. It smells nice though so I'll probably keep spraying it on my hair but I don't think I will ever buy it. I'm loving the Too Faced bronzer though. The fact I'm Rouge at Sephora and have never tried this is kind of sad. Especially when I'm a sucker for cute packaging (looking at you Korean beauty products).

I noticed the same thing with my hair. I have to apply it with a very light hand, just a spritz at the ends. I applied it too much one time and had to put my hair in a ponytail because it looked so bad and I didn't have time to wash it.

Were they all the same shade, or did I get a fluke dark one? Because mine say 'med/dark' and in no way will work on my skintone, and I'm the tannest I've been in a decade... (redhead tan, sooo not at all tan, just not translucent with more freckles)

I want to like it, but it just looks like I have dirt on my face. :(

I think we all got the same one. Mine says Medium/Deep on it. I'm also a redhead. A very fair skinned one at that with no freckles. I think it looks fine on me but I do blend a lot. The general problem I have with bronzers is that they have an orange undertone. Is long as they are muted like this one I can generally make them work.

Thanks! I agree the shade is better than some in that it isn't oompa loompa orange, but I'm guessing that since I already have the freckles where the bronzer would typically go, that might be my issue. It will work as travel contour, though, so there is that. :)

I got the medium/deep shade too and it's too dark for me too but I'll see if I can somehow use it.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
