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)

No more points for reviewing? Smiley Sad

 

Well, that seals the deal then - I'll be cancelling after July's box. Birchbox's point system is one of the biggest reasons I still subscribe. I can tolerate samples that are ill-suited to me or don't fit the parameters of my "profile" because I know I'm getting $5 to spend in their store. Once that perk is gone though, I don't think I'll put up with any more PARLOR by Jeff Chastain shampoos.

That's how I read it.  And I agree with you.  I've found a lot of great brands through BB, but it was the $5 in review points every month that made it really worth while.  Otherwise, if you only earn points through purchases, that means if I make a $100 purchase, I will only receive $10 in credit, which equals 10%.  Not worth it.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Bummer!!! Sorry if I am not reading this correctly lol but we no longer get points every month for reviewing our 5 samples? We only get points for purchases invites and gifting subscriptions? That's not good Smiley Sad I knew this was going to happen sooner or later. They don't have percentage off coupons that work anymore either like they use to. They expire now, that's what I mean lol. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

We can only hope the backlash is more than they anticipate and they reverse the decision. I am going to try to hold on as long as possible.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I hope so too NC because that is one of the main reasons I've had this subscription so long. It was an amazing perk.  So I'll hold on for a while and see if it goes back to the way it was. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

You understood correctly.  I'll screenshot the rest of my email and add it.

BB was too good to be true.  I guess there are two ways for companies to make money when the spending  is down; stop discounts or add more to get more volume in sales.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yeah that's a bummer.  I always enjoyed getting the extra 10 points when boxes had 6 samples.  But am glad we'll now be able to redeem in any increment.

@kelloua, I believe the email means first 5 of your subscription ever. Not first 5 per month.

That's how I read it too.

I've never heard of this box but the packaging looks cute and it looks like a fun array of items.

That looks beautiful. Have you tried anything yet?

I tried the Calm. It's very pretty, but HOLY MOLY super pigmented.Joy is too.

 

I'm not a fan of droppers in general though. I feel it dispenses way too much product, but I'm trying to figure out how to use them, or which method works best. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got this box too.  Excited to try everything.

I got the same! Can't wait to try the Davines. That lip product is very intriguing, too. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I almost went with this. It looks incredible, but I had to go with the new brow product. I love the older one. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Can't wait to get mine!

Shadows in Storm Grey, Tea Rose, Rose Pink, Gloss City Pink, Lip/Cheek Bloom Peony.

 

I was expecting the lip/cheek bloom to be creamy, but mine is kinda chalky. Is that normal? 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Those colors are gorgeous @MarciaBrady!
