Subscription box photo sharing

I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!

 

(I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

I have dangerously low impulse control when it comes to make-up stuff, so I tried just about everything on the day it came. LOL. The body lotion is really nice, but not $61 nice. I don't think you'll be dying to get a fresh one when the sample runs out. The hair stuff is great! I didn't use enough hair oil after washing so my hair was tangly and a bit brittle. It smoothed it out and made it softer instantly. The vinegar smell is strong at first, but dissipates quickly. The lip balm is fabulous, but not long lasting.

 

Hope that clears up some mystery!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yupp, that's the one. I'll put it aside so I don't forget to put it in :smileyhappy:

I just finished an It's a 10 a couple of weeks ago (the keratin one, i think) I liked it but it wasn't a big difference. But, I have curly hair and already use a bunch of other products, so maybe that's why.

 

I like trying fancy body lotions, but I probably wouldn't go and purchase one (which is why I like getting them in glossy box.) Josie's body cream is probably the most expensive one I have/one I wouldn't mind repurchasing. Actually, after I finish all of the ones in my collection that'll be the main one I keep buying..

started rambling haha, sorry. Anyways I tried the body cream last night and it smells AWFUL. After 10 minutes my hands felt really dry. Tried it again this morning and the same thing happened. Bummer.

 

But I used the lip balm last night, and it stayed on throughout the night, and was still on when I woke up. Doubt i'll go out of my way to buy another one, but i'll finish it up.

I tried the body cream too and completely agree! Hate the scent nothing else special about it. I guess I was optimistic after loving the body butter from last month's box, but definitely not a keeper.

 

I was, however, super pumped to see the promo for last month's AYRES Patagonia come in this morning because I would like to buy more of that. 

 

And I surprisingly did love the MALIN+GOETZ lip balm as well. Good texture, seems to stay put and a pretty good gloss finish.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My July Birchbox - REALLY happy with this month! (Except the Whish shave cream was not too awesome. I shredded my legs using it!)

My July Ipsy - Pretty happy. The Bare Min cream shadow was waaaay better than I expected. So was the Elizabeth Mott Benetint lip stain. But I have zero use for tanning oil and I'm one of those few who hates They're Real mascara. (Also, the bag is SUPER cheap looking.)IMG_20140717_202806.jpg

 

And my July Sample Society - Everyone got the same thing this month, so no surprises. Except my hair mask didn't explode or leak. Even though I recognoze that this is a quality box, I don't expect to get a lot of use out of it. I'm not into nails or fragrances and I prefer liquid highlighters to powders. Oddly, I'm happy with the L'Oreal lippie and the hair mask.

You got a fantastic Sample Society Box!  I've been hearing about how amazing the Maison Francis Kurkdjian scents are, but unfortunately I don't live near any retailers that carry them.  

 

I would love to hear how you get on with that L'Oreal liquid lipstick.  I have one in Rouge Allegro, and while I adore the color (it's a beautiful strawberry red), it has a tendency to wander out of my lip lines.  I'm sure it's nothing that a lip liner can't solve, but I was hoping that it would be a low-maintenance, apply-and-go, type of product.

Nice boxes! I actually got a very good shave with the Whish but my issue with it is the inconsistent smell. Sometimes it smells wonderful (when more of the acai comes through) and then other times the grapefruit just kills it. Kind of gives off a sour smell (mine did at least).

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Terrible packaging on that mini liner though! Feminine hygiene products anyone?

I hate They're Real Mascara, but that is the cutest box ever.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

[ Edited ]

I'm actually not a fan of the mascara either, I mainly enjoyed this months box for the novelty of it. It'll go on display somewhere... Haha

I thought I was the only one who hated They're Real Mascara.

Everyone loves it, but it just gave me like, FIVE, lashes. Not even nice ones-- spidery, brittle-looking messes.

So glad to find someone agrees haha

Hate. It. It flakes all over my face, to boot. :smileytongue:

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I am ready for TopBox to come to the US!!!

A lot of months don't look like this. I'm just lucky because I got my Wishlist selection this month, it's hit or miss like almost all of the beauty box subscriptions.

My Ipsy + Glossybox came in today:

The only products I've tried so far are the Pixi tinted lip balm (what tint??) and the Bare Minerals BB cream eyeshadow -- by which I was pleasantly surprised! It goes on nice and though it's nude it's just a little shimmery, and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all like most cream shadows do. 

 

And the GRE books in the background also came in today. :smileytongue: I left a PhD program last year and here I am, going for it again. Oh, I hope I know what I'm doing, lol. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Good luck on the GRE!! I take my boards in 4 months - I am having the same feelings :smileyhappy:

Your Glossybox looks awesome! And it came so early - awesome!! Glad to hear you like the BM BB eyeshadow - I got that too, now I'm looking forward to trying it

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Oh my gosh your glossybox came in already? Ah! So exciting!
