Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Since pipsqueek1582 so graciously offered her free items to us and there were enough items to start a box, we are officially opening Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013!  I offered to help set up this thread with the rules and list of participants just to make it easier for everyone.  I am calling this box #9 because box 7 split into 2 different boxes.  The rules are basically the same as previous boxes which I borrowed (cut and pasted) from previous threads.



1. Please, NO DRUGSTORE items! 

2. To keep things moving as quickly as possible, I'm requesting that people with U.S. ADDRESSES ONLY participate in this box. (I'm sorry Canadian BTers! Smiley Sad   )

3. Once the box comes back to pipsqueek1582, she will donate what is left to a worthy charity in her area.

4. If you do not see your name on this list from the previous thread, or would like to change your spot on the list, please post a request and send me a PM if you are able to swap with someone.

5. Please be aware that shipping costs may reach upwards of $17 if the TSB gets really full. Previous TSBs have used either the Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium or Large Box (comes out to $12.35 or $16.85 with tracking & shipping confirmation). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs!



Here is how it works:

Pipsqueek1582 will fill a box with products and send it through USPS to the next person on the list. They will go through the box, take what they want, add their own items in, then send it to the next person.


What you need to do:

1. Send a Personal Message to the person before you on the list with your mailing address right away so there's no delay in shipping.
2. Start collecting, sanitizing, and labeling your beauty goodies.  Please label swatched & sanitized on a plastic bag or with a removable sticker instead of using a marker on the product.
3. Read through the Rules below to know what is allowed & what is not



☆ High-End products and items you got from subscription boxes 
☆ All opened items must be labeled ("swatched", "opened", "tried/used"…)
☆ Fragrance if it's in a spray bottle (can be 1/2 used too) & must be wrapped
☆ Nail polish must be tightly closed & bubble wrapped/bagged/in a box
☆ Makeup as long as you've cleaned it with alcohol & it doesn't have big fingerprint marks/dents in it
☆ Mascara if it's sealed and/or has not been used 
☆ Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags as long as they are clean
☆ Anything that is sealed
☆ Skin care items in tubes & bottles Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened
☆ Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won't leak or break & ruin everything else
☆ Keep non beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc).
☆ every explodable/leakable item needs to be inside a plastic bag/ziplock


Not Allowed:
☹ Pre-made samples

☹ Drugstore items

☹ No USED items with wands, such as lip glosses, mascara, or concealers

☹ Heavily used items (except for perfume)

☹ Anything that might be considered unsanitary

☹ Taking more than you put in. Keep the Value of items equal

☹ Swatching items in the box



4  Do not keep the box for more than 3 days. (USPS does home pickup, so no EXCUSES! ) If you are traveling or something comes up, please let us know ASAP so we can move you down on the list.

5. Package things carefully and put in ziplock bags.

6. TRADE on or ABOVE the value of what you took.
7. Please include a tracking number.  It makes it more fun anticipating your turn.  Please post it and also send me a PM.
8. Post in a picture and/or text what you took and left (picture AND written description preferred).

9. Have fun and try some things you haven't tried before!


Please ask if you have anything that is questionable.

♥ No drama
♥ Be polite
♥ NO RESERVES (you may ask for people to TRY to include items. If it gets to you terriffic. If not, that's okay too)


If you think there is a need for more rules, post a reply to this.

Happy Swapping to all!  Smiley Happy

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Aaah so exciting! I'm so happy to be able to participate in one of these Smiley Happy 


Now time to get all of my goodies together!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

So excited! 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

For some strange reason, I can't edit the thread right now.  I need to mention in the NOT ALLOWED rules:


No USED items with wands, such as lip gloses, mascaras, or concealers.  These items cannot be sanitized.


Here are two links on sanitizing makeup:


Let's be considerate of others by passing on our makeup, not our germs! Smiley Happy

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

I am so happy I am on the list!!!!! Thank you everyone for getting this started.

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

yay! so excited to be a part of another one Smiley Happy i took a break from the last few and i've been reeeeeally regretting it every time i see someone post about them! 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

I'm sure there will be plenty of unloved samples and freebies that came with holiday purchases that everyone will want to share come the new year.  "One man's/woman's trash is another mans/woman's treasure."  I also love seeing the pics where someone liked my unwanted items.  It makes me feel good to know that they found good homes and nothing is wasted!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

me too Smiley Happy i have so much stuff to start a box with, and i even made goody bags for all three of my sisters and two of my closest friends with some of it... barely made a dent! plus there's ipsy, birchbox and julep subs that will most likely have items that won't work for me or for others as well Smiley Happy 


is it weird that i sometimes want to buy items JUST for the traveling boxes? like, i see them and think "that won't work for me, but it would work for someone else and i can trade it for something that WOULD work for me!" you know, instead of just buying something that works for me in the first place lol. these boxes are addicting Smiley Wink

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Okay...maybe therapy is in order!!!  Just kidding! Smiley Happy   No, you're not the only one who thinks this way.  I used to talk myself out of value sets because I didn't like every item even though it was a great bargain.  Now I see it as a plus.  It gives me more items to swap in the boxes!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

exactly! swapping is so much fun Smiley Very Happy i am pretty far down on the list on the two boxes that i'm a part of right now, so it's going to be a while until i get to play with one. and since i'll be starting one, it will be months before that one comes back to me too! ugh.


speaking of boxes... did the missing one ever show back up yet? anyone know? 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

From what I understand, the missing one did not show up. BUT a very generous person on BT donated a box to TSB6 so they could start back up. Smiley Happy

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

oh that's good that they were able to start it back up! horrible that someone took the box and then didn't ship it out Smiley Sad have they completely disappeared? so sad. unfortunate for others outside of that box, too. because now i've decided to make a rule that unless you're a big participant in BT you can't be a part of it. i don't want to take chances of someone who no one knows jumping in for the box and disappearing like this Smiley Sad 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Can I please be on this? Maybe all of the ladies that wanna be on this I will email and we can start it!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Dang, I always seem to miss the sign ups for these! Smiley Sad

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

i'll be starting one up shortly after christmas and will be getting my list for it started in the next week or so, and i know at least one other person was starting one after the holidays as well Smiley Happy you're bound to get in on one sooner or later! 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

I hope so!  I've got tons of makeup that deserves lovin'.  Smiley Happy

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Could I be on a wait list? If someone by chance changes their mind ....

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

I'm sorry, but I'm not forming a waiting list.  We've already gone over the number that was originally set.  If anyone cancels out, we will just shorten our list.  There will be other boxes starting in the new year.  Just be on the lookout!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Wow this box got together super fast! Good luck with everything. =]

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Suddenlyforever...please pm me your address (if you haven't already) and I'll get this out tomorrow!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

I will go ahead and repost these requests from the previous thread.:

If anyone is willing to swap with these ladies, let them know and also send me a PM so I can update the list.


wendyomgwar (#11) requested to be further up on the list.  @wendyomgwar - At the rate the boxes seem to move, you may well be clear of bad weather by the time you get it.


beethousand (# 9) also requested to be further at the top of the list.  She has a lot of items to go in the box.





Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

I'm #3 and I'll switch with either too!
