Looks to me like:

Klorane dry shampoo

Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads

Eyeko Skinny Mini eyeliner

Chella eyebrow gel and 

Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil.
 
If that's the featured box for January I'm def going to pick it up.

The featured box is the one that @@Bizgirlva posted above. BB is partnering up with Self for January.

 

The sample choices are:

 

R+Co Clarifying shampoo

R+Co Gel Conditioner

Arrow water resistant mascara

Sunday Riley Good Genes treatment

 

The sample choice opens December 27th for Aces and the 28th for everyone else.

It's so hard to pick, I want all the sample choices, but I'll probably go with Sunday Riley. I figure Birchbox will send me the other choices either with January or a future box. I'll certainly buy the featured box for the cleansing oil alone.

So, Lorelei is working out in that bulky pullover and ballet shoes? :D
That curated box looks good, I may pick it up if they sell it separately.

I think I'll go for the Sunday Riley product and get the curated separate if it will be available.

Birchbox put 50 free points in my account so I put in a super small order of the Clean perfume sampler ($7) and the curated box from January ($10), paid for with points so my total was a big fat 0. I chose the Sunday Riley sample for my PYS, I've never heard of it so it'll be nice to try something new.

Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment was my sample choice. I was hoping I'd get the R&Co shampoo and condition set and I did. 

I'm also getting Juliette Has a Gun MMMM which appears to be a new scent. I like the notes so I'm looking forward to trying it. Also getting Burt's Bees Lipstick and NUXE Moisturizer Cream Crème Fraiche de Beauté. I've tried both of those samples elsewhere. Not a bad box overall.

30% off for Aces on select products and kits in the BB store. I'm browsing the store even though I really don't need anything. :)

Tons of things in the 30% off sale, it's like they are clearing out a good portion of their inventory. I was tempted by some if the sets, but instead used my $5 bonus to purchase a Hum beauty powder. I swore I was done with birchbox after they changed their points system, but they keep reeling me back in with the free shipping, gwp's, and surprise points.

I did notice quite a few non sale things seem to be out of stock, so I'm not sure what that means.

I surprised how good the selection is. I was really tempted on a few things. I ended up getting an Amika set and Beauty Protector Blond shampoo.

I had ordered the curated box separate and it came today. I'm really happy I got it. Thanks for the idea to order it MUT ladies! I can't wait to try the Shiseido cleaning oil and I can always use more dry shampoo. I never thought I would say that with all the sub boxes but I do. lol I like Klorane dry shampoo anyhow. Overall I think this is a great curation. I'll set aside the Wilma Schumann eye patches and the Eyeko eyeliner for the next circular swap round but I'll use everything else.

My box came. I think it's ok but I've gotten better boxes. I look forward to trying the brow pencil even though I don't usually use brow products at least not on a daily basis. The Sunday Riley was my sample choice. I also picked two add-ons, the Coastal scents brush cleaner and the Benefit Dallas blush.

Those are the same things that are in my box, the brow pencil looks fullsize but it doesn't look dark enough. Hopefully it will be, my box isn't here yet but I can't wait to smell the perfume. I like Juliette Has A Gun but still haven't found a scent that I actually LOVE from them.

Grrr I need to stop taking a chance with Birchbox. I feel like it never gives me anything I want.

 

Coastal Scents Revealed Palette- I'm good on eye shadow. I really need to use up what I have and I'm not even wearing it very much. My routine lately has been a quick swipe of ColourPop Tea Party eye shadow and some winged liner. The last Coastal Scents eye shadow I received was not very impressive. 

 

Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel- I really like simple basic skin care and sticking to what I know that works.I don't even use moisturizer samples for this very reason. I'll probably try it once and use the rest on my feet or something. 

 

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum- I prefer for my acne products to have either BHA or AHA. I also noticed this has lavender in it. The last two times I've used a skin care product containing lavender I broke out in a rash. 

 

Number 4 L'eau de Mare Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner- This brand isn't awful but I prefer cleansing conditioner to regular old shampoo and conditioner. 

 

Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue- This is my everyday fragrance so at least I don't hate the perfume sample. 

 

I was hoping for the Burts Bees Lipstick or some hair styling products. I'm really not that hard to please but they always miss the mark with me. Lipstick, mascara, liquid eyeliner, sheet masks, bb cream, hair styling products, all of these things I usually want to get. It's annoying to not get even one. Especially on a profile where you have makeup selected as the thing you want the most and get 1/6. I feel like Birchbox targets women older than me with a more conservative use of makeup. They get me with the promo codes every time though. I need to exercise some restraint!

It's hard to restrain though @@Sakura Chiyo, at least I have that problem. The curated boxes seem to be a better fit for me. I've got the No4 hair samples many times too.

    • 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.
