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 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:

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.

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
