Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Hi All! 

 

We are long overdue for an updated Subscription Sharing thread!  Whether it's BoxyCharm, Ipsy, or PopSugar we want to hear (and see) all about what you are subscribed to.

Interested in trading with other users?  Here are some things you need to know from @SydBristow and her trade threads:

 

Spoiler

IMPORTANT NOTE: To comply with Sephora's terms of use, items cannot be listed "for sale" or even for trade for Sephora or other gift cards. Please do not list "prices" either (which implies selling), but you can list approximate trade value.


Because a number of fake items have been sent in trades, it is strongly advised you provide photos of your higher-end items, including the labeling (you may be asked for it anyway) and list WHERE you purchased the item from. Fakes are readily available from less reputable sellers and can contain toxins! It is important to everyone to know where their cosmetics come from.

Please also be aware that some makeup products cannot be sanitized - please use caution in your trades. When in doubt, ask the community, it's a great resource! Used items you may wish to avoid are mascara, liquid eyeliner, lip glosses, and cream products.

Acquiring Items
Please use discretion with whom you enter into trades with. There is a summarized list of trusted traders here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/List-of-Successful-Traders-January-2015/td-p/1852954 Protect yourself in your trades, ask questions (such as where an item was purchased), ask for additional photos (to show level of usage and/or labeling to prove authenticity).
If you don’t feel 100% comfortable doing a trade because someone is new, you can request they send their items first.

Communication
Please use the private message system on Beauty Talk and/or tag the user you are trying to get in touch with. Communication is key! You can tell a lot about a trade by how the communication goes. If you will be unavailable for any periods of time, please be up front, and if there are any issues with shipping please be up front about that as well.


Delivery
Having tracking and insurance on shipments goes a long way to figuring out where an item might be. The USPS puts anticipated delivery dates and tracking numbers right on the receipt. If there is any issue with an item you have sent out, please follow up with the carrier.

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@Tamara76 My decision to cancel the play box wasn’t difficult at all. They keep sending the same items. There is no excitement anymore. It’s nothing but leftover promos, as you can see the bite glacé mini is now a promo with a $35 buy in and a bunch of perfume vials. 

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Thank you, @trishavt !  This helps me feel better about my decision as I agree with everything you said! ❤️

I bet that's bittersweet @Tamara76 just wish they would stop putting so many repeats out there 🤨

Thanks, @lmaster !  I agree!

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

My Sephora Play! box FINALLY showed up and I actually already know that I like the majority of the products but I finally decided to cancel.  I keep getting too many repeat items, unfortunately :(.  Who knows--maybe I'll resubscribe again in the future but for now I'm taking a break.

@CookieGirl1 same it's sad, but if I can't try new products, there's just no point

Re: @CookieGirl1 same it's sad, but if I can't try new produc...

@lmaster Yeah, at this point I feel like I would rather put that $10 toward a full-size product instead of a few repeat samples.  However, I would possibly re-subscribe in the future if it looks like the selection is getting better.

I'm right there with ya @CookieGirl1  I'd love it if they could use different up and coming products every month

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

You did get a great box, girl!  I just cancelled, too.  It was a really tough decision, but I want to try more new products. 😞

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Got my Allure Box today! Woohoo

@ArmyChick84 Yay! And the BB set, how exiting!

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Ooh, @ArmyChick84 , you even got the elusive BeautyBlender set!

Nice! Hoping mine arrives in the next few days. Mail is suspended due to the bitter cold temp in my area.

Re: Nice! Hoping mine arrives in the next few days. Mail is s...

@IndyQT317  Same! I'm glad our service is suspended though because our carrier delivers on foot. Luckily nothing was coming that we needed and amazon deliveries weren't suspended (ours came via fedex today). We get the frostbite patients where I work and I imagine when I go back this weekend we're going to be full after 3 days of negatives! 

Re: Nice! Hoping mine arrives in the next few days. Mail is s...

@IndyQT317  Oh, that stinks that you're one of the ones who's had a delay due to weather.  I've heard a lot of people complaining about that :(.

RE: Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

So nice!

Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Still waiting.. Has anyone else received their box yet?

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

I was coming to ask if anyone else is having issues. My box is currently bouncing around Queens. Hopefully they all get delivered soon!

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@michelleshops  mine finally arrived over the weekend but shipping never updated - it just showed up at my apartment

@IndyQT317 I called them yesterday, they said they were waiting on nail polish, but I did get a shipping email late last night
