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:



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: 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.

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.

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.

Consider providing your feedback on successful trades on this thread here:

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

Allure boxes for February and March

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

I'm curious if the January box is really going to include a full size Sunday Riley serum like My Subscription Addiction predicts.

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

Pretty certain it will @txcatx . MSA tends to be pretty spot on 😁

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

Ooh, I don't have this sub but I've heard awesome things about the Laneige mask and have been wanting to try more from the brand.

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

@CookieGirl1 The Laneige mask is great; I would highly recommend it for all skin types.

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

It must be, @ElleElleG, since I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that they DIDN'T like it! 

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

Thanks for posting @KNC24 !!!

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

I think I’m going to keep allure beauty box @ElleElleG. Are you still considering joining for January?

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

@KNC24 Yes (so long as I dont forget to sign up).  Do you know if you can pause the subscription?

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

I think the last of my December subs have arrived - Just in time for the holidays! ❤️


Pusheen Winter 2017 Box (actually my daughter's):


1.  LED Charging Cable
2.  Plush Pusheen with a little sweater and hat - so cute!
3.  Head Massager
4.  "Ugly" Christmas Sweatshirt (adorable!)
5.  Pin set
6.  Vinyl Pusheen
7.  Sticky Notes
8.  Mug
9. Mug Warmer

Also, isn't the actual box the cutest thing ever?!?!

I'm always so impressed with the value in Pusheen Box!

Popsugar Must Have December 2017:


Wow!  The last few December PSMH Boxes have really impressed me, and this one is no exception!
1. Ashkahn "For You" Gift Tags
2.  Chloe + Isabel Pave Bar Long Pendant Necklace - I chose gold, but there was a silver version, too - I love it!!!
3.  Baublebar Sugar and Spice coaster set - I was so surprised to discover that these are plastic, not cardboard (yay!) and they are slightly translucent with glitter (double yay!) - So cute!
4.  Wild Ophelia Sugar Cookie Chocolate Bar - YUM!  This was amazing!
5. Lalicious Extraordinary Whipped Sugar Scrub in Sugar Kiss - Haven't used this yet, but it smells soooooo good!
6.  Pier 1 Imports Cocktail Filled Candle in Vanilla Bourbon - Smells divine!  I love bourbon and this is the perfect blend of bourbon and vanilla
7.  Tilo Twilight Scarf - So pretty!

I am so in love with every single thing in this box!!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

 Sephora Play December 2017:


1.  Dry Bar Triple Sec - This is my HG product to use when I curl my hair
2.  Smashbox Cover Shot Duo in Golden Hour - This is lovely, but it's a repeat of a promo I've received from Ulta and SiJCP, so I passed it on to a friend
3.  Tom Ford Black Orchid - Not a fan 😞
4.  Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat - I don't think I've tried this primer before - excited to check it out
5.  ABH Lip Gloss in Vintage - I think I've received a DS of this from Ulta, but can't find it, so I'm definitely using this - such a beautiful shade!
6.  PTR 24 Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream - It seems to be more of a highlighter than a face cream - I plan to mix it with my foundation - I'm probably most excited to try this product! ❤️

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

@Tamara76  That chocolate bar was one of the best I've ever had.  Figures it would be made by Vosges.

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

@Ispend2much6 @Tamara76,

Agreed.  I haven't even gone through everything in my box yet. I had the munchies one night and just opened the box for the chocolate bar.  No regrets. Ha!

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

I know, right?!  @Ispend2much6 💗💗💗

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

Wow!! Everything with the Pusheen subscription is Pusheen, even the box LOL.


Both PopSugar and Play look great as well! 

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

Yeah - They don’t mess around - when you sub to Pusheen Box, it’s allllllll Pusheen! 💗💗💗@ElleElleG

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

Haha! @Tamara76 You say it! The pusheen head massager in this season's box had to be the funniest thing ever. I think that is true "jump the shark" moment from this season's box when you have to say... maybe this just too much pusheen?!?! (as I scratch my chin in deep thought)

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

I feel like I need a Pusheen history lesson! @Tamara76

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!
