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. 😉  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!!

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

Blessings to everyone!!!!!!!!

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

Yaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!! Going there now!!!

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

Yay! I have the box! I can't wait to go through it, and I will get it shipped out asap : )

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

@mermadelove - Cool!  Where are you from?  Toronto's not a bad city, but I'm here all the time and I much prefer to go elsewhere... lol. 


NYC just seems appropriate since it's a very fashion forward kind of place.  🙂


@kalex - I'm in Canada, so I'd appreciate it if you can lump me in with the other northern folk... 😞  (Seriously, we don't get half the deals and steals that you ladies do in the U.S!)

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

@officegal: I live in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. I'm going to Winter Carnival in Quebec City in a few weeks!!


@katie1724: Can't wait to see what you swap and haul!!!!

You cross the border quite a bit!  I haven't been to Quebec City.  Nor Vermont.  lol  Brrrr.... winter!  I'm sick of it!


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

You know, I've always wondered about working at Sephora. I suspect they get a lot of discounts/free stuff! Very interesting.


I just had a horrible realization. I'm going to be in the Dominican Republic on vacation from Jan 18-23. Do you think I'm scheduled to get the box during that time??? I don't want to hold things up.

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

Hmmm.... I'll check and keep you posted!

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

Yay! I can't wait to receive the first one...I think it's on its way to me as we speak.



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

@macuser: good luck!! 😄

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

@macuser: Good luck on the JOB!!!!!!!

 I was at a FS Sephora this past weekend and the SA who helped me told me thaty they get free products and teaching MONTHLY!!!!! When I retire, I'm going to go work for Sephora........ 🙂

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

Hmmm... a meet-up is going to be a lot more difficult than the traveling box.  But let's see if anything can be worked out!  (Lol, Kalex!)


1.  mermadelove:  May or early June

2.  officegal:  early May or late August/early September (more likely the latter than the former)


Toronto, Canada is always an option, too.  😉

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

In reference to the missing FB TSB.


I think the economy has brought out the worst in some people. I sell on eBay to help pay the bills while I finished with my Masters degree. I have noticed more people than ever before are complaining about the cost of shipping (I do not mark up like some vendors) and some are even asking for a discount on the products.


Now I realize times are harder for some than for others but I would never sign up for a program that I did not think I could fulfill my commitment to. Obviously not everyone on FB shares my opinion, which is sad for the people that were burned.


On a happier note...the first box is not that far away from me nowSmiley Wink I can't wait!


I hope everyone has a nice weekend!


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

@runy and @mermadelove - Meeting up in NYC sounds FABULOUS!!!  I'm thinking of accompanying my sister in mid-January but probably won't be able to go.  I guess that could be another project in and of itself - having VIB meet-ups at various cities each year!  It'd be scary to storm a Sephora all together.  😄


@tenngal - You put some awesome stuff in there!  I'm getting excited for Round 2.  🙂

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

I want to be in on the second box, too! I can't wait to receive the first one...yay!



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

I had so much fun going through everything!  I didn’t haul much because I’ve got too much stuff already, so I replaced what I hauled and put extras in just for the fun of it.  I can’t stand to throw good makeup / skincare / perfume away (even if it’s samples) so this is a great way to share with other makeup junkies!

Sample – Laura Gellar Lip Strip Cooling Lip Scrub

Here’s what I’m replacing with:

Deluxe Sample – Make Up For Ever High Definition Primer

Deluxe Sample – Clarins Advanced Extra-Firming Day Lotion SPF 15

Sample – Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum

Here’s what I added just for the fun of it:

Deluxe Sample:

LORAC – Behind the Scenes Eye Primer

Tarina Tarantino – Pearl Glow Primer

LORAC – AquaPRIME Makeup Primer

Lancôme – GÉNIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrate

Shiseido – White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum

Korres – Wild Rose Cream SPF 6
Clinique – Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup

Juice Beauty – Oil Free Moisturizer

Boscia – Vital Daily Moisture SPF 15

Benefit – Stay Don’t Stray (primer)

Ole Henriksen – Truth Serum Collagen Booster

Skyn Iceland – Pure Cloud Cream

YSL Elle Eau De Parfum

Lavanila Laboratories Vanilla Grapefruit Fragrance (x 2)

Versace Bright Crystal Eau De Toilette

Stella by Stell/McCartney

Dior Addict Shine Eau De Toilette

DKNY Be Delicious

I'm going out in the snow today to get it shipped back out. Smiley Very Happy 

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

This looks like fun!  Is the list full?  I wasn't sure, since it looks like #10 is available on the first post?  🙂  I'd like to join, if I'm not too late.

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

Serendipity, you can be in slot 10 as the only person it really affects is me! I'll edit the post to add you to the list!

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