My Birchbox Reveal – October 2016

19 Oct



I’m most excited about the Clarins serum!

I’m already a fan of Parlor hair products.

I’m neutral about the mascara.

I’m not sure what the butter is for, body or face.

What did you get?


BirchBox Announces Changes to Points System

15 Jun

I’m sure we have all seen a version of the email Birchbox sent out to their subscribers yesterday.

BirchboxPoints eMail

When I received my email, I went on some beauty boards to see 1) what everyone else’s interpretation of Point 3 was and 2) get a general idea of people’s feelings

Sadly, Point 3 confirmed what I thought, that BB is discontinuing points for Box items reviews.

I have to admit, this change sort of sucks.  And pairing it with a point expiration date, they basically created an Ipsy point structure but WORSE.  At least Ipsy allowed earning points on reviews.

Basically this removes most of my point earning and redemption possibilities.

Some people have already cancelled their subscription or are cancelling soon.

I won’t be cancelling yet, mostly because I like the products Birchbox sends me.  I have signed up for the Sephora Play box, and I am on their waiting list currently.  Once I have an active Sephora subscription, I can better determine which service I like better.

Another thought I have is that given the amount of negative feedback this announcement generated, I wouldn’t be surprised if BB makes additional changes to the program in the coming months.

What are your thoughts on this change?  Are you outraged (some are, it’s okay), are you sort of okay with it?  Maybe you don’t care about point programs?

June Ipsy Bag! Pretty in Paradise

26 Jun

June’s Ipsy bag is super fun!  AND even though I have an irrational hate of pineapples, I do love the pineapple print on the bag itself.  🙂


Almost every single item in this bag was a huge win for me.  I mean, like L.O.V.E.

NYX butter gloss – love


Skinn Olive & Enzyme Cleanser – LOVE.  I love the scent of this, I love how it feels on my face.  I love how well it removes everything.
Nicka K New York Shimmer Eyeliner in Green.  SO MUCH LOVE.  This thing has serious staying power.  I even ran 2 miles in this stuff (disclaimer, I was wearing UD primer) and it stayed put.
Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray – LOVE!  I’ve never used a beach spray before and was skeptical.  But I’m wearing it two days in the row now.
The not so love – Be A Bombshell Lash Out Mascara
I think be a bombshell is sort of hit and miss with their products, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I’m not sure if this stuff was super old or dry, but it did NOTHING for my lashes.  Zip, nada. nothing.
Oh well
I loved everything else.
