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)

This is the best box I've received from them.  It was my last though, so they went out on a high note.

I guess all those missing and exploded samples were finally too much? With your history with them, I can't say that  blame you. Although they do seem to be making a new effort to turn their service around. I hope it keeps up! These last two boxes were awesome.

I may add them back on next year when I cancel Julep if they keep up the good bags.  I liked the last box too.  Even though my hair product exploded, I was able to use it once.  I enjoyed it, and there is probably enough for 1-2 more uses.  I wonder how many uses you get from a non exploded one, 5-6 probably.

Ohhh I like this box. I may have to subscribe. What color TF melted lippie is that? peony?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yes, it is melted peony.  This box has a history of leaving out a sample the site says you're receiving.  It has already happened to me twice, so I decided to cut this box when I made the decision to go from 5 to 2.

Which two are keeping? I imagine Birchbox is one of them. :smileyhappy:

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Julep and Birchbox.  I want to be a member with Julep long enough to collect all of the gemstone polishes, so I will likely cancel after December.  At that point, I may rejoin a box I canceled, add a second Birchbox or get a brand new one all together.  I would like to have two at all times.  One just feels like too little once you've had five.

Do they make good on the left out sample or are you just out of luck?

They made good on both of mine, but a bunch of people wrote on Facebook that their box was missing the LM powder last month.  When they called, they were told they did not have any replacements.  They were offered a $3 credit.  My box costs $16.22, AKA $3.24 per sample.  I'd be upset if they offered me anything less than $3.24 (even though I realize they have to pay for the box and shipping).  It is not the subscribers fault when an item is missing.

Subscription mom posted a couple spoilers for Ipsy and Glossybox in August - Just one product from each. If they are true it looks pretty good!

Are you going to redeem your free box for this one?  That highlighter does look pretty, and I bet they will have another big box to celebrate their anniversary.  I am still so mad that they canceled my subscription though.

I am leaning to yes - the highlighter looks nice...Plus August is my birthday, so more makeup things are always good :smileywink:

Two months in a row now that everybody has received identical Glossybox contents. :smileysad: 

 

I feel like they put all their energy into the BG box and think maybe a couple months of lackluster items will fly.

My glossybox arrived today too. Trying to decide if I'm going to renew for another 3 months. Even though I don't use EVERYTHING I get, I like this box a lot more than Ipsy, which i'm probably going to cancel.

Anyways. I probably won't use the first 3 items.

I got that serum in a previous box (surprised they're repeating a product). I haven't used the other one, so idk if I'm going to keep this one or put it in a TSB.

I don't like glamglow, so that might go in a TSB, and probably the hair product too.

But I love body/hand creams, and lip balms, so i'll be trying both of those tonight.

If you put that GlamGlow into the TSB I'm hoping you're referring to, I will gladly take it off your hands.  I am right after you too, so it will be mine for sure.

 

I do not know what I think about the hair product either, but it will be a long time before I find out.  I have 2 open now thanks to my unwillingness to wait on trying It's a 10.  I gave the lip balm to my husband, because I have more lip balms than I know what to do with.  Although, that did not stop me from trying to order a La Mer one recently.  Someone said it was better than By Terry, and it is $5 cheaper.  I figured I must try it, but I was proud of myself for not buying it.  That is until someone reads this and tells me I have to get it.

 

The body lotion is $61 for 6 ounces, so I am afraid to try it.  $10 an ounce for body lotion.  I'd go broke trying to replace that every few weeks assuming it is incredible.

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.

My final Glossybox just arrived.

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.
