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)

I'm always envious of the Pusheen box items, but just can't bring myself to spend the $49.99 + shipping to Canada! There's always something I would LOVE in every box but also a bunch of random items that are cute but would never use (like the popsicle makers in the summer, shower curtain/bath mat in the fall box, head scratcher and pins in this box). 

 

I wish I could just do a sweater subscription! I've wanted every single sweater in every single box!!

 

@Tamara76 in terms of sizing, is the shirt/sweater typically unisex/misses/ladies sizes??

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

@k617  They ask for your size when you subscribe - I can’t recall the size options offhand, but I do remember that there was no XS option, so my daughter went with small and the tops have been pretty roomy, but she loves them and says they are very comfy.  Everything is super cute, but I agree that it would be nice to just sub for the tops/sweaters, too!💗

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

Thanks @Tamara76!! That’s good to know!

 

i would totally pay $24.99 for a sweater sub!

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

@Tamara76  I like all of your subs boxes but I like the pusheen subs box  the best!

It's so cute!

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

Thanks, @mezzotown88!  I agree that they are the cutest by far! 💗💗💗

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

@Tamara76   The Pushen box looks like the best one ever.

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

@darkiceis @Tamara76 To keep the peace in my house, my hubby and I have a deal that I am only allowed to be signed up for one sub box. (I used to have a bunch.) I like them but he doesn't so as I'm sure you already know, with all marriages you have to make compromises.

 

So this year it's been Pusheen Box all 2017 long. I dropped on my hubby on xmas that I wanted to switch to the annual plan and that I wanted that for my birthday. And then I told him how much it was... he nearly had a heart attack!!! Even after I went over how much money I would save by switching he just kept say.. "It's only pusheen.. how can it be so expensive?"

 

So what is the moral of this story???? I'm not sure but I'm not unsubscribing from my cutie patootie.. the lovable pusheen. **wink wink**

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

@willa25, @Tamara76-  My hubby doesn't understand sub boxes period. He just shakes his head and says "Amazing that anyone would pay money for samples that the companies give away". (I only get Ipsy)

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

@willa25 Awwww - I love my subs!   My hubby doesn't understand them, either, though.  When I've tried pointing out how much I save by going with the annual payment plan, he actually says I'd save more by not subscribing!  The horror!!!! 😉 

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

@darkiceis I agree! 😘😘😘

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

The Pusheen Box is so kawaii and awesome! I'm squealing with delight just looking at the post. I can't even imagine how your daughter reacted when she unboxed it @Tamara76.

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

Thank you so much, @juliehnguyen!!!  She was thrilled!💗💗💗

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

According to my subscription addiction looks like cosmopolitan is coming out with their own box! $20 plus $6 to ship. Looks like it’s going to be more life style - here are the first spoilers

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

The mug is cute but otherwise, not sure what all they could put in there for me to think this subscription worth the price though. 

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

Agreed - I can’t see subscribing unless there was a bunch of other great stuff

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

Hmmmm - The mug is cute!  The bands look like yoga/workout headbands, which my daughter loves!  Any word on how many items the box will contain?  I don't think I'd pay $26 for 3-4 things...   Thanks for sharing! @Kim888

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

Yeah I mean everything looks cute but not $26 cute haha - they didn’t mention in the post how many products to expect

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

I agree @Tamara76 that seems like a lot for a handful of lifestyle items, but the style of it looks cute if there's more!

I got my play! box today! SO happy with it!!! Smash box e...

I got my play! box today! SO happy with it!!! Smash box eye shadow duo, Tiger grass cream, clinque pretty easy liquid eye liner, MUFE red lipstick, dry bar 3-in-1, and the Clementine California Atelier Cologne. There have been few bags where I see myself using every product but this one will get some good use.

Re: I got my play! box today! SO happy with it!!! Smash box e...

Fabulous box, @Lazybeautybeast!

 

I got that eyeshadow, too - It is a repeat of a promo I got at Ulta and SiJCP, so I passed it on to a friend, but I love, love, love the colors!

 

Drybar Triple Sec is my HG product when I curl my hair - I wash my hair the night before and let it air dry, then I spray the heck out of it with the Triple Sec before curling for more volume and to help hold the curls (also top it all off with a good dose of hairspray).

 

Enjoy! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Re: I got my play! box today! SO happy with it!!! Smash box e...

I got the same box! I wanted the LM caviar stick and caudalie eye cream. But I think I will use these items! I updated my profile too so hopefully that helps a bit.
