Birchbox March 2017 *Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

I know I'll pick up the featured box, as an extra but I'm torn between the liner or the face cream for sample choice.

I've used the Kiehl's face cream. I got the sample from somewhere. It was ok. I liked it but I don't think it was anything that special. I'll probably go with the curated box.

Yeah and the sample size is so small for the moisturizer, like .25 oz. I'll get more use from the liner.

I picked the liner and bought the featured box separately. I still hope I get the cream as part of my box.

I ended up going with the curated. I almost bought it separate and was going to go with the liner too but ended up just choosing the curated box.

I picked the liner too, its not something I have but out of the three its probably something that I'd use right away. I mean, I'm not a person who complains about getting sample size mascaras cause I love them but my stash is pretty well stocked right now. And while I love the Kiehl's, I'm still working on the Aloette serum from Boxycharm so it would just take up space. And I'm loving the box for March, its such a pretty blue.

Just checked my box preview, looks like I'm set to receive Beauty Protector Protect and Volume, Paula's Choice Anti-Aging Eye Cream, a Benefit Double the Lip sample, Real Chemistry Fresh-Start Foaming Cleanser, Arrow Eyeliner and Eye Brightener (I didn't realize this would have a liner on one end),and R+Co Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner. I'm actually happy about everything, I just hope the sizes aren't too small.

I think the eyeliner/eye brightener sample choice item is just the eye brightener side, not the full size shown in the preview.

I'm bummed my box page hasn't loaded yet. 

 

But I got my featured box today, good sizes on the sprays.

That's good to know. And I just tried to get my box to load again and it wouldn't do it so I hope my contents stay the same.

The featured box looks really good! Can't wait to get it. Looks better in person than in pictures.

It's the 10th and my box page still isn't loaded so I chatted with a rep and they gave me my box contents via chat.

Not too bad, the momo shampoo is usually a good size, but I fear the conditioner is a foil packet.

 

I think I've already tried the mask some where in a past beauty box. I'm happy with any Paula's choice items and I do love the Beauty Protector scent. Overall not too bad of a box.

I've officially lost it. I thought I was getting the featured box but I had chosen a sample instead. :blush:  I think I was thinking about ordering the featured box and didn't. My sample choice was the Arrow waterproof mascara. I'm excited about trying it. I got Coola, Real Chemistry Peel, Amika Mask samples and also Klorane dry shampoo. I can definitely use the Klorane so I'm happy with the box. I might need to order the featured box now too although I'm drowning in samples.

I revealed my box and I am very disappointed. I got my Kiehls sample choice. But the rest of products don't match my profile. R+Co Dallas shampoo and conditioner, Beauty Protector & Volume, and the Arrow liner - I hate pencils that need sharpeners. I know I'm getting older and my hair isn't exactly what it used to be, but thickening and volume products just don't make sense. I have thick, dry, wavy hair and these products won't get used.

On my profile, for skincare concerns I have marked dark spots/uneven skin tone because dullness isn't an option. I wish it was because despite not having undereye circles/puffiness marked, every single month I get an eye cream. This month I'm getting the Paula's Choice Resist Anti Aging eye cream, last month it was the Supergoop! Advanced Anti Aging eye cream, in January it was the Origins GinZing Refreshing eye cream. Before that it was the Air Repair Super Hydrating eye cream. Oh and don't forget the Wilma Schumann eye pads, I've gotten those too. I never realized til now that I've gotten all those eye creams...

 

Before that, like in the middle of last year, I kept getting anti aging face creams. I'll take a scrub or literally anything else to not receive any anti-aging products. Foils, I don't mind. Perfume samples, I'm okay with. Anyway, as long as the boxes contain at least one thing I'm interested in I'll keep subbing. On another tangent, I traded away the Shiseido oil cleanser that came in a previous curated box and now I'm having swapper's remorse. But I am getting the Real Chemistry cleanser so I'm definitely going to try that out.

I don't think you missed anything @mirandamanda. I've used it a few times and it's ok but nothing amazing.

I agree. I actually like clinique take the day off oil cleanser way better and it's cheaper too!

Update: I emailed CS my complaint and they offered to send me a second box that better fit my profile.

Box 1: Roloxin, Coastal Scents, Kiehl's, Arrow, Protect & Volume, Dallas foils

Box 2: Paula's Choice, Benefit, Real Chemistry, Kiehl's, Arrow, Protect & Volume, Dallas foils

 

I'm not so sure it's a better match since I ended up with even more of the volumizing products and the liners I didn't want, but it's nice to have 5 samples to try plus double of my sample choice.

    • 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.
