Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

Happy holidays, ladies!

I know a few of us have been talking in the past week or so about the Traveling Sephora Box. There are a few of them going on the Sephora Facebook website, but many of us spend alot of time here and virtually none over there. I think beauty talk is more fun and user friendly, so I thought I would start a box here. This is a great way to get rid of things that don't work for you, share with your fellow beauty junkies, and help out women who are less fortunate. (Powder to the people!!Mascara for mankind!!!))


For those of you who are unfamiliar with the boxes, here are the rules we are using:


1)The items can be skin care, makeup, hair, etc.

2)They can be full sized, deluxe samples or regular samples.

3)The majority of the items MUST be Sephora, but you can throw in other things. Just make sure that they are things with brand names, no dollar store stuff. (i.e. Nyx is ok.) I would use the rule of for every 1 item non-Sephora related, throw in 3 Sephora items to counter-balance. ๐Ÿ˜‰  Unless it's a high end item like MAC or Guerlain-- use your common sense. (Thanks, kalex!!)

4)Once or twice used/swatched items can be included, but no more than 2 used items per person without checking with us first. Used items MUST be in "like new{ condition. For makeup that has been used, please disinfect it with some alcohol before putting into the the box.

5)Please baggy each individual item and label, this way product won't get everywhere if something is damaged.

6)For every item you take out of the box, please replenish with something of equal or greater value. Example: You cannot take a FS product and replace it with a sample or Deluxe Sample. Also, please post what you took out of the box when you receive it.

Please get the box back in the mail no more than 72 hours after receiving it. If you cannot comply, please let us know right away. If taking vacations, please let us know if it is conflict with when you will be receiving the box. We can always switch you with another participant, or find another solution.

8)Every one, must ship via Priority Mail WITH Delivery Confirmation, pm'ing the recipient and myself with the DC#.

At the end, the box will come back to me, I will take a few items and then the rest will be donated to a local  women's shelter.

I have a list of 5 to 6 people that are definitely interested and the list will be limited to 25 people.  If you contacted me ahead of time your screen name witll already be on the list.

For those of you interested in joining, add yourslef to the list, cut and paste and repost the list to this board.

I've decided to shorten the number of open slots in the list so that we can  get this box going because I based this one on the way they were doing it on FB and there are LOTS more people that look at it. It seems a shorter list fits our purposes better-- otherwise we will be waiting forever for the list to get populated! I'm waiting for two people to get back to me that I PM'ed a few days ago. If I don't hear from them by tomorrow, I will get the box in the mail then so we can get rolling!!

  1. Mermadelove
  2. runy
  3. kalex
  4. tenngal
  5. katie1724
  6. fireckacker7383 (?)
  7. prettyinpa 
  8.  macuser
  9.  daisy346
  11.  Back to me (mermadelove) and then to the shelter

Happy Haulidays, Share-a Haulics!!!!!!!

Blessings to everyone!!!!!!!!

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I'm going to be out of town Jan 20-25.  If it turns out that the box is going to be mailed to me during that time (I'm #10), then daisy346 can go ahead and skip me and send it back to mermadelove.  I don't want to hold it up.  ๐Ÿ˜›  I'm keeping an eye on the thread to see how the timing goes...

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I know the turn around time has been fast, but Idon't want you to miss out, serendipity. I can send it back to you if Iget it before you get back. Then you can send it back to me and I can donate the balance.

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

Both of us at the end are going to be out of town! I won't be back til Sunday the 23rd. Should we skip both our turns & have it sent to you, mermadelove?

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

The turna round time has been pretty fast, so it might get to you both before you leave, since it's only the 14th. I don't mind if one of you doesn't send it back to me until you get back from vacation.  Let's see what happens as it gets closer, ok?

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

Okay sounds good!

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

2nd day on my new job and I am exhausted! I have to get up around 4:00 to leave before 5:30 am (I am NOT a morning person Smiley Tongue) anyway I came home tonight and the traveling box was here!!


I had fun going through the box and I hauled the following items:

I can't wait for the second box to arrive!

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I just got the first TSB today! Saved me from boredom on post op day! It was SOOOO exciting to see the new and different stuff in there! People have been so generous that the box is overflowing! I can't wait to donate this! But first, I'm going to send it to the next girl on the list, once I see who is back from vacation first!


I hauled:


Bare Escentuals lipstick in Spiced Raisin

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

mermadelove - Thanks so much for organizing this box, and I'm happy that you were able to get some great things.  ๐Ÿ™‚  Hope you are doing well.  Take care.


Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

Welcome home, serendipity01 !!

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I'm so glad to see that the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and the Benefit She Laqs found good homes ๐Ÿ™‚  Enjoy it ladies!

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

It's so much fun when you give someone a beauty product & you know they'll love & appreciate it...almost like finding good homes for kittens. If you can't keep them all yourself, they can at least go to someone who will love them. When I was a kid I used to adopt stray kittens. I was only allowed to do it if I found homes for them. I wasn't allowed to keep them all, much to my regret.

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I got the box!!!! At least I'm assuming I did. My sister said there's a package at the house for me and I'm not expecting anything else so it must be the TSB! Very excited. Now it's going to be agony waiting until I get off work at 6 to go look at it.....going to be a looooong day. 

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

ROTFLMAO!!! If it was me I would rather not have known. I would be going crazy, right now too!!!


Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I know, I'd be better off not knowing. She sent me a text earlier to see if I got to work okay (we got SNOW last night) and said "Oh by the way there's a package here for you." Aaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! I shouldn't have gone to all that trouble digging out my car & driving to work. I should just have stayed home & played with the box all day. Sigh....I'm just too dedicated of an employee.

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

LOL Daisy

I too would have opted to stay at home and look through the TSB.  Darn that work... wish my makeup stash would pay my bills.

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I can't wait to see what you haul, daisy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

I had sooo much fun last night, looking at everything. It's amazing how many samples we've accumulated! It's not like there's 20 of us ๐Ÿ™‚ At least we're doing the smart thing & making an effort to get rid of them before they're 10 years old.


Tonight when I go home I'm going to re-pack the box with my additions & run out to mail it first thing in the morning. I'll let you all know what I hauled/replaced with. This is fun! We're like little kids with a new game.

Re: Share-A-Haulics= Traveling Sephora Box!!!!! {UPDATE}

Good morning, everyone!

Today I will ask the Medical social Worker at my day job where she thinks the box would be most helpful, and then I will send it off to it's final destination, with a card explaining who it's from and how it came to be.

Thanks again, everyone for your generosity and for a highly successful, fun and QUICK turnaround box!

Bright Blessings and Sparkle On!
