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

Julep's customer service has been great lately.  I was missing two items from my Maven box and they sent those products out, no questions asked!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I agree.  Their shipping has been messed up a few times lately, so their customer service is challenged.  They've risen to the the challenge though.  

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Wow, your nails are getting spoiled ;-) 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Too bad I rarely paint my nails.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Birchbox, where art thou?  

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Is anyone still waiting on Birchbox?  I already got the items I ordered with the upgrade to the annual subscription, but I still have not received my August box.  It was shipped on 08-08-14, but the tracking has not updated since 08-13-14.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Oh no! Sounds like it might have been lost? I agree with Zpsid91 - you should call their customer service if you haven't already. Smiley Sad

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

That's weird - i got mine last week…can you try calling customer service or emailing them to see what's happening with it?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I emailed them but they made me wait until yesterday to order a replacement.  My replacement box kinda bites, so I am glad my original finally arrived.  It does not appear as if the replacement has been shipped yet, so I sent them an email to cancel it.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Is there a way to get off Topbox's waiting list?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Unfortunately there is not, none of my friends have ever waited more than a few weeks for an invite though.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Awesome, thanks.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Also, is Beauty Box 5 worth the subscription? Canadians get charged an extra $3 so it's $15+ tax for us.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Not in my opinion. I hated almost every month so I unsubscribed after about 5 or 6 months. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My glossybox arrived today too. Trying to decide if I'm going to renew for another 3 months. Even though I don't use EVERYTHING I get, I like this box a lot more than Ipsy, which i'm probably going to cancel.

Anyways. I probably won't use the first 3 items.

I got that serum in a previous box (surprised they're repeating a product). I haven't used the other one, so idk if I'm going to keep this one or put it in a TSB.

I don't like glamglow, so that might go in a TSB, and probably the hair product too.

But I love body/hand creams, and lip balms, so i'll be trying both of those tonight.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

If you put that GlamGlow into the TSB I'm hoping you're referring to, I will gladly take it off your hands.  I am right after you too, so it will be mine for sure.

 

I do not know what I think about the hair product either, but it will be a long time before I find out.  I have 2 open now thanks to my unwillingness to wait on trying It's a 10.  I gave the lip balm to my husband, because I have more lip balms than I know what to do with.  Although, that did not stop me from trying to order a La Mer one recently.  Someone said it was better than By Terry, and it is $5 cheaper.  I figured I must try it, but I was proud of myself for not buying it.  That is until someone reads this and tells me I have to get it.

 

The body lotion is $61 for 6 ounces, so I am afraid to try it.  $10 an ounce for body lotion.  I'd go broke trying to replace that every few weeks assuming it is incredible.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I have dangerously low impulse control when it comes to make-up stuff, so I tried just about everything on the day it came. LOL. The body lotion is really nice, but not $61 nice. I don't think you'll be dying to get a fresh one when the sample runs out. The hair stuff is great! I didn't use enough hair oil after washing so my hair was tangly and a bit brittle. It smoothed it out and made it softer instantly. The vinegar smell is strong at first, but dissipates quickly. The lip balm is fabulous, but not long lasting.

 

Hope that clears up some mystery!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yupp, that's the one. I'll put it aside so I don't forget to put it in Smiley Happy

I just finished an It's a 10 a couple of weeks ago (the keratin one, i think) I liked it but it wasn't a big difference. But, I have curly hair and already use a bunch of other products, so maybe that's why.

 

I like trying fancy body lotions, but I probably wouldn't go and purchase one (which is why I like getting them in glossy box.) Josie's body cream is probably the most expensive one I have/one I wouldn't mind repurchasing. Actually, after I finish all of the ones in my collection that'll be the main one I keep buying..

started rambling haha, sorry. Anyways I tried the body cream last night and it smells AWFUL. After 10 minutes my hands felt really dry. Tried it again this morning and the same thing happened. Bummer.

 

But I used the lip balm last night, and it stayed on throughout the night, and was still on when I woke up. Doubt i'll go out of my way to buy another one, but i'll finish it up.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I tried the body cream too and completely agree! Hate the scent nothing else special about it. I guess I was optimistic after loving the body butter from last month's box, but definitely not a keeper.

 

I was, however, super pumped to see the promo for last month's AYRES Patagonia come in this morning because I would like to buy more of that. 

 

And I surprisingly did love the MALIN+GOETZ lip balm as well. Good texture, seems to stay put and a pretty good gloss finish.

I'm pretty happy with this month's Birchbox! I mean, the only product I'm excited to try is the lipgloss (everything else seems just OK), but I love that they included a free subscription to Women's Health! (and you can request a $9.99 rebate if you don't want the subscription). I haven't subscribed to any magazines in a while and I was planning on restarting all of my fashion + health/fitness subs again, so that bonus completely made up for the so-so selection this month.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

So, I threw out the little booklet that came in my birch box by accident-- is that where the information on subscribing to the magazine or getting the rebate is? I'm debating if I should go diving into our outdoor trashcan for it!
