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.

so disappointed they bumped it from 30 to 20%- I was going to buy a lot of stuff but now am unsure at the lower discount.

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 love Marcellle bb cream so I geuss thats got to be my pick, but I kind of like the shade of the eyeshadow stick too. But the I love Rene Furterer so I don't know. I really like the look of the box itself, its really nice.

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.
