Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@RNGesusPls 

Yay!!! Congratulations on the gratis!! I’m very interested in hearing about Algenist and DE!! What does the candle smell like?

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@GG84 The Algenist GENIUS Collagen Calming Relief 1.35 oz/ 40 mL has been great for soothing and moisturizing my irritated skin! It's a thick, balmy unscented cream.

 

The Voluspa Branche Vermeil candle has a warm, soft and subtle woodsy pine-like scent with I think a hint of citrus note. It's a warm, comforting scent 🙂

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

Congratulations on receiving this awesome gratis @RNGesusPls. Your thoughts on some of these products are helpful. Good luck with the job search which is quite stressful so hopefully some of these products will offer you some stress relief.

@GG84 im interested to hear your feedback as well. 🥰 I used it last night. No irritation not problems so far. I will report back in a week though.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

Hi so I’m editing my post to celebrate those that did receive gratis and not clutter the thread with my boo hoo. 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@GG84 - I'm sorry you're unable to participate in this gratis through no fault of your own!  Not only do you deserve these awesome looking products, your reviews would be invaluable!  To quote a friend, "Whatcha gonna do?" 💖💖💖

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@GG84 I don’t mind at all. ❤️ Custom can be suck sometimes. Hugs

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

I am so sorry that weren't able to accept your gratis @GG84!  That super bums me out. You are always so helpful in this community and deserve the love Sephora was trying to show you!  😞

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@GG84 

It was the UPS brokerage portion of the fee that seemed quite high. The tax/duties on the package were reasonable.

 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@l8totheparty 

The fee kept changing. The last phone call that they demanded an answer was over $200. I couldn’t broker bc the port of entry was 7 hrs away from me, honestly they were quite rude. One day it was one amount and I considered it, no where near $60 then it jumped to over $200. 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

Wow! Apparently UPS and delivery services can charge what they want for brokerage fees? I went on a search for answers for this. I did come across the postal brokerage fees being standard at a very low rate. I didn't phone the post office to double check that info.

@GG84 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@l8totheparty 

They made up their own rules on the phone. I kept asking why the fees changed from one day to the other, and I kept being told duties fluctuate based on the value. I asked had the value changed? She said no. I asked what did change? She finally said I was quoted incorrectly the first time 🤦‍♀️It’s just a scam honestly. 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

Hopefully this problem can be solved so our Canadian friends can receive gratis without paying brokerage fees and duties. I have noticed that Sephora has a warehouse in Mississauga so perhaps in the future gratis could possibly be shipped from there.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

Ugh @GG84 I'm so sorry to hear you have mail trouble. 😞

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@GG84  Aww that sucks. I’m so sorry to hear about that. 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

Congrats on being selected for the gratis @GG84! I’m so bummed to hear about the fees! Would have been awesome to get your feedback on these. 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Algenist, Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty, Laneige and Voluspa

@blackkitty2014  WOO HOO - we hope you love your stress kit!! I am so intrigued by these products!

 

We called it a stress challenge in the letter but are calling it the self-care check-in challenge - do you mind adding this link to your OP so that others can easily find it?
