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

Oh, I love that lippie @jen81 Heart  just received an email that my box had shipped...hope it gets here before his summer heat turns it into a liquid lipstick!  LOL

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Mine arrived today too. The blush was super easy to depot, and the glue underneath was still sticky. I simply wiped the glue off with a paper towel. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Nice @jen81! I wish WanderBeauty would make a guest appearance in a Play box lol

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yes, would be great to try some more of their products!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I completely forgot to take pics of my boxes! I have two subscriptions, and then accidentally got myself a gift sub when I meant to get it for my sister in law, so I have three at the moment.  Next month I will be my last month of three.

 

Here's what I got:

 

Box 1- I have a yearly sub on this one

birchbox1.jpgThe cleanser I was super excited for! I'm going to use it for the first time tonight.  The headband I got was in the purple, green and blue.  The foil packets...I am sick of getting these **bleep** things.  It's only a one time use. ugh.  I did get TWO foil packets, so I guess I can use it twice? I love trying out new mascara, so this will be fun to use.  I hope it has staying power, but I'm not counting on it.

 

This is box #2, my 2nd yearly Sub

I was super super excited to get the nail rock.  I got it in the purple color too.  I hate viva la juicy, and I don't know how many times I have received that perfume from Birchbox.  I'd rather never get perfume.  I can't use the burts bees because it's for dry skin, and I have oily skin :/ They sent me two of them by accident, so I guess I can use it for my body.  I am excited to use the hair cream though, I always get flyaways.

 

Box #3

This was my gift sub, my least favorite box. It kind of sucked lol

birchbox3.jpg

seriously...tea? and a VERY SMALL dinky container of lotion? ugh. I can use the shampoo/cond for traveling I suppose.  Oh well, you cant win all the boxes, right?

 

I like birchbox a lot, but after my yearly subs run out, I may just only keep one instead of two.

 

 

 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

You get three?! Holy moly!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Normally only two lol.  The gift one was only a 3 month sub :-) I really don't need or want three. Even two is too much so once my year is up, I will only keep one :-)

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

These all seem like decent if not great boxes, imo. Each has good and meh items. And I'm amazed that with three subs, you only got one duplication!!

 

I got the tea too and I hate tea. Smiley Tongue Oh well. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

i got my January topbox today!  this month was a "happy chinese new year georgous" benefit box.  Which included a fakeup (.002oz) total moisture facial cream (.03 oz) benetint (.08 fl oz) porefessional (.1 fl oz) bad gal lash (.14 oz).  Not bad for $10!!! Smiley Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Love Benetint and Porefessional!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Whoa! Awesome!  Too bad it's not in the US I would def. sign up this looks great, esp. for $10!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

IT'S ONLY $10!!??!?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I didn't take a photo, but my Topbox from February was totally different from everyones... I was in shock! I loved it sooo much, but I didn't see any other blogger have a SINGLE item I got.  

 

Here's what I got: 

- Shu Eumura Gloss Unlimited in Modular Pink (deluxe sample: $10)

- Cuccio Colour Nail polish (full size: $10)

- B. Kamins Nutrient Replacement Cream Kx (deluxe sample: $60)

- Estee Lauder Double Ended Kajal Pencil (full size: $25)

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I never heard of this box, how do you like it? Would you recommend it as well?

 

-*edit*-

 

Aww, shucks! It looks like a Canadian box Smiley Sad

 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I feel your pain. I tried signing up for luxebox...looked so amazing!   Then I saw Canada only and cried a little inside.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yeah, it's a Canadian-only box Smiley Sad sorry! But I do love it. It's a higher end one, but super affordable. I don't like Ipsy or BB5 because of the plethora of drugstore items, so this suits me nicely. I also subscribe to LuxeBox, which is even more high end and I'm always super excited about it!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Just got the April Sample Society box! So awesome!

 

It includes...

 

  • Tatcha Original Aburatorigami (Full Size)
  • Butter London WINK Eye Pencil in Indigo Punk (Full Size)
  • dermalogica Precleanse Wipes (2 total)
  • H2O Plus Aquafirm Micro-Collagen Moisturizer (with my sensitive skin, this was the one thing that wasn't that exciting)
  • Illume Anemone 2oz. Candle Tin

On a different note, since we are also discussing non-beauty ones, I just wanted to recommend the Graze snack box, which includes 4 small snack packs for $6 a box. It has gotten me eating a lot more dried fruit and nuts, which is much better than chips. The first box is free. You can cancel at anytime, and you can choose to receive a box once or twice a month or even every week. They also will take into account for you food allergies/sensitivities, which is particularly awesome.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

This is similar to my box (which has not arrived yet).  I am not sure if I am getting the candle or the dermalogica packets, because it says it will be the candle, but it has a picture of the dermalogica wipes next to the description.  Hopefully, it arrives soon, so I can see what I get.  I am excited about the tatcha.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

It showed up the same way on my page, so it looks like they just switched the photos accidentally. I'm excited about the Tatcha, too. I had looked at it but had decided that the Boscia sheets were more economical. So, I'm excited that Sample Society forced me to splurge. ;-) 

 

My dashboard also said I was getting the pink butter London pencil, but I'm actually glad I got the purple. I think it's not as loud against my darker skin tone. Hopefully your box comes soon!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I ended up getting the Dr Hauschka cleanser instead of the Dermalogica wipes.  My eyeliner is black though.  Purple is my favorite eyeliner color, so I am jealous of yours.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got my first Glossy Box this week. I'm really disappointed. I can't even recall anything that was in the box. I'll post a pic when I get home.
