Subscription box photo sharing

I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!

 

(I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I feel like I'm the only person who's play box hasn't arrived----or even shipped yet?? guess this is my punishment for complaining about the bag 😂

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

LOL. You're not being punished. I'm excited about mine, and it has arrived yet. I checked the tracking, and though it's shipped, it really hasn't made it that far yet. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

If it makes you feel any better mine hasn't arrived yet either @xxsour and I didn't complain about it (at least for this month...I think...lol) Smiley Very Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My box hasn't shipped yet either Smiley Sad

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Same!!!!  Not even sure which one I'm getting, but I am crossing my fingers for no Porefessional...

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

FWIW, the day I got my shipping notification is the day my box arrived (Thursday)!

Here is my January Birchbox. There were three tea bags, but I hate tea so I gave two of them to the bf. The Inika loose eye shadow is a lovely (if a bit shimmery for me) slate-blue-gray.

 

 

 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I'm surprised I didn't get tea this month! What's up with them and tea?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I do NOT know about the tea. O.o ... I guess it seems like a nice, homey, ... I dunno. I can see some people liking it. It's the first time I've received tea from them, so I'm not super bugged by it.

 

I'm def interested in the cleanser, though, even if it's just because the presentation was so awesome. I am such a sucker for spiffy packaging. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I am jealous of that cleanser + cloth! At least I didn't get any little dinky hair ties for my short hair...

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got the hair tie last month, and I actually like the thing! I know I'm in the minority, but for me it's just the right size for a ponytail and it is indeed prettier than the hair elastic I perpetually have on my wrist. Smiley Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yes, they are pretty, but man do they not last. I use the headband version.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Ooh, uh oh. I'll have to take a back-up with me, then. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Hi all, 

I've kind of creeped around here for a while and never really posted anything (once or twice) and I was just wondering if you guys had any recommendations for beauty box/beauty stuff subscriptions in Canada? I'm not sure if there was another post asking this same question (I'm kind of a newbie at this) but I was just curious. I'm a full-time student so I don't really have any money... So I'm hoping you guys would know which gives you the most bang for your buck deal. 

Thanks so much Smiley Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I'm not Canadian, but I know you can get TopBox, and it looks like a really good one.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Thanks! I was also looking at the Julep one which seems like a pretty good deal for the price of $19.99... I'm not sure if they ship to Canada though :/

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

HeySmiley Happy I live in Canada, and I'm subscribed to Julep. They do ship to Canada, but it seems to take significantly longer to get here (probably because of customs). I live in Hamilton (which is only 90 min from the border) and it takes about 2 weeks to get my boxes. 

One nice thing about  Julep is that they don't charge tax, duty or shipping, so it's the same price for us as it is for the people in the US. You can also skip months if you don't like the choices, so it's good if you're on a budget.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

YAY! Hello and thank you!
I totally caved and got the welcome box (mostly because it was free.. but they got me with the add-ons). I figured I'd see how that went and then if I liked it I would subscribe to a more regular thing. I definitely like that it's the same price for us as the US... Most of the others charged so much more for Canada. And I do like the fact that you get full-sized products from Julep. I'm in Vancouver so I'm thinking I might get my shipment from Seattle? Here's hoping it doesn't take too long... but that's always iffy when you get the border involved. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

It's hard to tell when they actually ship the boxes and how long they spend in customs, since you can't actually track orders in Canada, but I'm sure you'll get yours faster than me because if how close Seattle and Vancouver are.

I was so close to subscribing to ipsy, but I couldn't justify paying $5 shipping for a $10 bag of samples I might not even like :s

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

i do topbox (posted this months box above) and ipsy... i used to do luxe box but i found that it was not worth it and i wasn't enjoying most of the products i got so i cancelled

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My PopSugar Must Have box came yesterday! Here's Ponyo enjoying the box!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Re: Subscription box photo sharing
