Roxy Boxy TSB[ Edited ]
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.
* Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.
■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn)
■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly
■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB.
■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating.
■ DON'T swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items.
■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value.
♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask!
♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask!
♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such.
♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box.
♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM.
♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it
♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly.
♥ Most importantly, share your experience! Please post a photo and a description of the box, what you took, and what you contributed.
☆High-end, clean makeup/skincare items (including makeup bags, brushes, etc. If you have questions, refer to other TSB threads or just ask!)
☆Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!)
☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)
☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze)
☆Heavily used items
☆ Drugstore items
☆Used items that haven’t been cleaned/sanitized
☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)
If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX*********
Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this.
Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).
-send your address to the person above you
-post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in BEFORE you send the box on.

Re: Roxy Boxy TSB
Ok my Roxy Boxy ladies, the box is on its way to DandyLionFluff, yaaaay! USPS Tracking: 9405509699938501015349
I do have the large jar of Phyto hair mask and also the bag of fragrance samples. Will post exact details later, but if anyone wants them I will absolutely be happy to send them along to you!
And I did kind of overstuff the box, I hope people don't worry too much about matching value with the stuff I added, anyways most of the eyeshadows are not new so don't worry about grabbing them to make room for your own stuff!
Re: Roxy Boxy TSB
Wow, there are some seriously great things going in and out of this box! I'm not sure what the composition will be like by the time it reaches me but I'm sure it will be great.
I think taking things out that just don't fit and mailing them to someone who wants them or to roxystar to donate makes sense. I know we don't want the box to get totally out of control and all have goodies that we want to share, too. I'm amazed at all the great things you're adding!
Re: Roxy Boxy TSB
@mafan I did think about consulting you for packing tips since you seem like an expert in that area, hahaha! It came already beautifully packed but I did shift some stuff around and re-bag some stuff to make it all lie flat.
Re: Roxy Boxy TSB
Hi ladies just wanted to update yalls.... I've repacked the box five times and can't get everything to fit! There are a few bulky items in the box that are difficult to pack around, especially the large jar of hair mask and the bag of fragrance samples. I remember in other boxes that removing the cardboard covers from fragrance samples lends to breakage so I'm not sure what to do with that. Any suggestions?
At this point I'm thinking of leaving those items out. If anyone wants them I will happily mail them out to you. If no one claims them by the time Roxy Boxy is done I'll send them on to Kristen. Hope that sounds OK.
I plan to take Roxy Boxy to the post office tomorrow.
Re: Roxy Boxy TSB[ Edited ]
