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.

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Wow, that was fast!  Just in time for Christmas!  Have a happy holiday!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Thanks guys, this was fun =) The box was sent out this afternoon, the tracking number is: 9114901189866964371676

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Yay!!! I'm so excited!! Smiley Happy

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Ahh all the pictures are upside down, sorry about that! 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Hahaha!  How did that happen?  You should have seen me turning my tablet upside down, only to realize that the images flipped upside down also!!!  I finally figured out how to hold the tablet and view the pictures at the same time.  Thanks for posting pics!  By the way, there is no limit on the number of items you swap, as long as you replace them with items that are of equal value. 


Let us know when you mail it to wendyomgwar and post the tracking number. I'm glad you got to take part in a traveling box!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Thanks so much for including me! Sent!  The tracking number was posted in a post above =) 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

I did a very similar thing, wingatprsct! I thought it was a glitch or something and then I realized the only thing that was upside-down were the pictures! Smiley Happy

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Haha sorry about that!  

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

So here's a photo of all the goodies:

image-6.jpegSince this is my first traveling box, I wasn't sure what to take/add, so I just took the Aqua di Gioia and a rollerball Pacifica Blood Orange perfume:

And I put in a bottle of DKNY Be Delicious (only used a couple of times) and VS Gorgeous body spray:


Will ship it out today, tomorrow at the latest!


Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

lol, I'm liking the pinky pose. Too lazy to track down the details, but it has something to do with what orientation you took/view the pictures in and what you use to rotate it (a photo editing prog or windows viewer etc). Sometime I'll see a pic displayed correctly on my laptop but in a different/wrong orientation on my iPad and vice versa.

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

We can also see your reflection in the DKNY Be Delicious cap!!! Smiley Happy

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Oh gosh, I didn't even notice that haha!  Guess my pinky has a mind of its own =P  

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Just a note......vanilammm requested to be removed from our box.  I will not be adding anyone in her place. 

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Thanks pipsqueek!  Super excited to receive it =)  I'll send it out again on Monday after I trade and post pictures!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Can't wait to see your pics!

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Tracking number is 9114901123086745974627.  Scheduled to be delivered on Friday.

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013

Yay, we got it going!  Let's try to keep it moving so it won't lose momentum.

Re: Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013
