I would try every one of those, hopefully they have some nice PYS choices next month. That reminds me, I haven't even got this month's box yet :(

The sample choice video is up:

It's all about lips for Feb. The three items for sample choice are:

 

  • Manna Kadar Lip Locked Stain in Rosette, 
  • Laqa & Co Avo Lip Butter in Ninza, and
  • Dr. Lip Miracle Balm

The featured box has some changes to what's posted above:

 

The Beauty Crop PB&J Smoothie Stick is in Saucy Marsala

Instead of the dry shampoo there is Clean Reserve Perfume in Amber Saffron

Instead of the Dr. Jart Water drop there is Vasanti Eye Wonder 2.0 Super Powered Eye cream

 

 

What are you guys going to pick?

 

I think I'm going with the Laqu & Co lip butter!

 

 

Oh sample choice is next week Jan 26/27 depending if you're an ACE or not.

I'll probably choose the Laqa, its not a color I usually wear but the formula sounds like something I need. And I'll probably buy the curated box because I'm getting hooked on perfume samples and the eye cream is something I'd actually like to try.

I just came back to bb since I missed it so much! If I get to pick I'll probably pick laqa because I read the manna kadar is sticky :/ it may be too dark on me but it looks pretty!

Boxes are up! Mine has the Manna kadar (my PYS), Helmut Lang Cuiron fragrance (supposedly for men AND women...), Davines SU Hair and Body Wash, Balance Me Congested Skin Serum, and Supergoop Eye Cream.

 

I've been wanting to try the Balance Me Serum for a long time so I'm happy to be getting it, the Helmut Lang and Supergoop will probably never get used. I'll definitely try the Davines so 3/5 isn't so bad I guess. I keep forgetting that I have to buy the curated box, I hope it doesn't sell out anytime soon, they just put up some kits in the gwp section that are so tempting.

Weird.

 

I picked the Laqa & Co lip butter for my sample choice but my box shows a box that's almost the identical to the featured box:

The only difference is this box has the  pūr~lisse pūr~lip comfort daily lip nourisher instead vasanti eye cream. I hope this changes because I bought the featured box.

Bah Birchbox emailed me and said I'm not getting my sample choice

Also my box will be the one posted above which is a near duplication of the featured box I already bought so I chatted with Birchbox and asked for points.  They gave me 100. I guess that's about all I can expect.

 

I'm super bummed. oh well.

Same.  My sample choice didn't end up in my box this month either.

Did you all see the Birchbox subscription options ?

Looks like if you "upgrade" you get to opt out of some sample types (that's about the only benefit I found to be notable.  The box fix it kits seems like they'll just send you one of their pre-packaged boxes that you can by from the shop, or used to I don't know if they still sell them.

 

When I clicked the link from the MSA page my upgrade cost was $14/box so I bit for $4 more a month. But when I clicked the link the morning on my laptop it said my cost was $18/box. I wouldn't do it for that much.

Mine says $16, I would opt in if it was $14 though. Its almost like they're bringing the points back, but only if you choose the option to get points instead of a box that month and really, 10 points versus the old 50-70 points is almost laughable.

 

The beauty fix-it boxes sound like the kits they already have in the shop,and that reminds me that I answered a survey a few weeks ago about my birchbox, they asked me why I didn't pick the option to switch my box that month with one of the kits that was offered. I had no idea about that and wrote that I probably would have picked a kit had that been offered to me when PYS choice time came around. I haven't even been offered this anyway and I've been a non-stop subscriber since 2012 so I'm a bit miffed.

I wasn't emailed about the new offer. I just clicked the link on the MSA page and it popped up. I'm not sure how well promoted this "upgrade" was, seems a little sloppy. And the different price points are so random.

My Birchbox arrived. No sample choice :(  This upgrade option better be worth it or I might just opt to get the featured box each month and revert back to the $10/month option. I feel sad about birchbox it used to be SO good.

I picked up my box on Saturday- my PBJ Smoothie stick was twisted all the way up. It's broken and the top part is stuck in the plastic cover. Off to contact customer service.....-

    • 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.
