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)

BoxyLuxe arrived today! 

  4AFB51AB-8CFA-4C84-8EDB-DA3B3470CC21.jpeg

  

Some first impressions:

 

The Pyt hair dryer: This thing is not messing around! It’s tiny and weighs almost nothing, but it went from “off” to “serious heat” in two seconds. Plus it’s dual-voltage, so that means I’ll be able to travel with it — yay! I also like that it doesn’t have that high-pitched whine that so many compact dryers seem to have these days. 

 

Farmacy Honeymoon Glow: I already bought this a while ago and it’s too potent for my sensitive skin. Looks like my husband will be sporting the honeymoon glow for the both of us for the next year to come 😂

 

Dominique Cosmetics Lemonade lip gloss: I already have another shade and love it. Super excited to have a new one!

 

M. Greengrass Body Butter in “Summer in Nice” fragrance: I’ve never been to Nice (lol) nor tried this brand, so I’m really happy I got this!

 

Dr. Brandt pH-balanced Yogurt Cleanser with Chlorophyll: I’ve never heard of this product. Excited to try it! 

 

A great box all around. Very happy with it 👍

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

@PinkEvergreen  I got boxyluxe too and omg the blow dryer is amazing. I cant wait to take it for my trip in a week. When i tried it at home it totally blew me away. 

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

@Anastasiya13 No pun intended? 😂

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

@PinkEvergreen  Haha guess it matches the product haha Smiley Happy

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

@PinkEvergreen  What a great box, what does the body butter smell like?

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

@Samtian  I wasn’t quite sure how to describe it, so I went to the M. Greengrass site and their description is quite good:

 

Notes of: spun sugar, jasmine petals, sea salt air, coconut cream, lily, muguet, vanilla, driftwood, and musk. 

 

The sweet fragrance is certainly present, but it’s not overbearing. I also like how the sugar and coconut balance each other nicely, with a hint of floral notes.

 

For a potency reference point: I really like Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream, but I know a lot of people find it over the top. I would say that this body butter is about 50% of that potency. I find it quite pleasant and the texture is silky smooth. 

 

Hope that helps!! 😊

Play! box came today, I hadn’t looked at my spoilers for it and I’m stoked!! Been wanting to try the Farmacy balm forever, and I’m always about shampoo samples. Excited to try the Sephora Collection Hydrator too because I haven’t used any SC stuff before. tarte is an awesome brand so that’s a plus. And the Laneige is wonderful obviously!! So many good things. 😁
