Birchbox December 2016 *Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

Here is the thread for Birchbox December.

 

Looks like they are changing to ACE requirements. Per their email on Friday, Ace status will now require 400 points in one year. You'll still earn 1 point for every $10 purchase and for gift subscriptions and friend referrals.

I'll probably get the shadow stick for my sample choice. I'll probably purchase the featured box too.

 

@@Reija your post duplicated so I hid the extra one.

I like the box design too. I think I might go with the curated box. I would like to try the Marcella CC cream too though but I also want to try the products in the curated box. It's a tough one but I'' leaning more towards the curated box.

In the fine print below that, there are no exclusions, so if you purchase a gift sub that'll count towards that total. No code required.

I always forget to look for the curated box in the shop. I should have picked the sample and then bought the curated box. Thanks for posting @@mirandamanda!

Birchboxes are up for December.

 

Here is my box:

 

post-93138-0-55856500-1480697355_thumb.png

 

I'm a little bummed, I've tried all of these product already from Birchbox or other subs, with the exception of the shadow stick (in this shade, which I selected for my sample choice). The highlighter was a previous sample choice (that I didn't select but I already traded for), the oil primer I got in a recent ipsy and the eye patches I've tried from a previous birchbox, not this account though, and I've tried the dry shampoo too.

 

None of the products are bad, I just look forward to trying new stuff, I'll probably end up swapping 3/5 items.  Oh well.

Saphira Hair Mineral Mud

Marcelle CC Cream in Golden Glow

Lollia by Margot Elena Dream eau de parfum

Nuxe Moisturizer Cream Creme Fraiche de Beaute (its a moisturizer. why can't they call it that?)

Laura Gellar mascara

 

The last moisturizer from Birchbox that I actually used was the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream they sent me in March. I've gotten four of them that are basically laying around taking up space and collecting dust, I've actually replaced my moisturizer step for the serum from boxycharm, since its full size I'm not even a quarter way through the bottle.

Yikes - I didn't realize the curated box was $15....  that was my pick this month since I was underwhelmed by everything in the sample choice video.  Oh well.  I like the LOC products I have gotten

The curated box is only $15 if you're not a subscriber. It's the usual $10 if you picked it instead of a sample or if you're a subscriber and wanted to buy it separately.

    • Ohhh, you did a really good job! I hope that you will keep doing a thing in the same way. You really have a talent for it. Also, I would like to present myself. I am an editor for the edureviewer and we need your help with video reviews. Check out this article https://edureviewer.com/services/speedypaper-com-review/. We want to make a special video review for it. If you are interested in it. Just contact us!
    • I just found the Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Full Collection Box. Prettiest thing I have ever seen. It is me! Planning to get it as soon as I have the money. So romantic, and has skin care too. I WAAAAAAAANT IT! I don't know how to add a photo, but you must see the brushes. 
    • I tried to talk myself out of it but ....👿 is on my shoulder. Spoilers: besides the brow product shown above Becca Ultimate Lipstick Love Coverfx Perfector Face Palette IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream Morphe 15 Shade Palette 5 other items yet to be revealed. It is getting more and more impressive; might be getting it.
    • According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, shedding 50-100 strands is perfectly normal and you don’t need to go for any treatment for that. A hair grows in three phases including growth phase (Anagen), resting phase (Catagen) and Shedding phase (Telogen). Initially, a hair remains in the anagen phase for about 2-5 years before going into resting and shedding phase. During the resting period, the blood supply to the hair follicles becomes limited which as a result makes the hair delicate. In the Telogen phase, the hair is completely disconnected from the hair follicle and sheds off, where it is replaced by new hair from the same hair follicle. Since the old hair is replaced by a newer one, the overall density of the hair is not disturbed in this case.
    • In time for Valentine's Day, a little haul from Shop Miss A came today. I love it. Shop Miss A is an online makeup shop where everything is $1.00. I've been buying for years from them, but I am excited to see that they have more skin, hair, and body care items now! And the products are quality. Research revealed that many of the new skin, hair, and body products come from Fisk Industries on New York. Fisk makes Barielle, a quality nail care line, and hair products distributed by Sally Beauty Supply, among others. You can get hair masques, scrubs, serums, hand creams, body oils, for $1 each! I notice a lot of things sell out often on Shop Miss A. So I check the New Arrivals sections often. You have to stay on top of it. I also try to keep a budget and limit myself to 5 items or fewer so my total will be under $10.00 with shipping on each order.  Latest haul: Luxe Beauty Care Collagen Skin Cream - full sized skin cream for $1.00, in a nice box. It does have mineral oil, characteristic of a lower priced cream. But also shea butter. I don't mind mineral oil.  A0A Studio Pure Cotton Squares - great Shiseido cotton dupes for $1.00. Package is little, so you have to purchase these often, but they are great!  Pink faux fur makeup bag - Lancome had a promo with a pink faux fur bag and I wanted it so badly, but I think you had to pay $60.00 for the GWP, so I had to pass it up. I got this instead! Dermactin T-S 2 step collagen masque - This is from Fisk Industries. I love 2 step sheet masques. It even comes in a little sleeve like a CD case. Cute! Excited and only want to shop more from Shop Miss A! I have another haul on the way with Fisk hair balm, scrub and some other things.
