Time to start a November thread! October was good to me, I'm cautiously optimistic for November :)

I know the internet is inundated with subscription box review blogs, but I think if I ever started one I might call it "Cautiously Optimistic..."

 

It seems to capture my whole experience with sub-box culture thus far  ;)

I really love the hand cream that's in there, and I'm always willing to try a new sheet mask, but otherwise I'm feeling pretty meh about this box.

Who knows what will be in mine since mine tends to vary quite a bit (for better or worse) from the reviewer boxes- but this box is pretty meh (although some will be used eventually). Fitting for my last box (besides the LE holiday since I couldn't help myself lol)

I feel pretty meh about this box. Have not been really excited with the last few glossyboxes (with the exception of the October box) and I am definitely not a fan of box variations so I just went ahead and cancelled my sub. I was tempted on getting the 6-month Rue la la deal but I'm going to pass on that for now until the boxes improve enough to tempt me again into resubbing...

This box is also really meh to me. My subscription ends with November and I'm confident that I will be canceling. Glossybox used to be my favorite sub hands down, but it seems like ever since they started having box variations that my boxes have been more and more lackluster.

This box is free for me since I used my points. It's not an exciting box, but all items will be used assuming the lip pencil isn't too dark.

I would have loved have gotten the EL moisturizer sample but otherwise I'm glad I cancelled. The main reason I cancelled was to cut back on boxes but I ended up picking Popsugar back up so not really making progress. I did purchase the holiday box though so I'm interested in seeing how that is going to be. Glossybox has been hit and miss for me and I've subbed and unsubbed so many times.

Looks like an OK box for me.

One thing though I will say, this is probably just me, but every time I see an Estee Lauder, Lancome, or sometimes even Clinque product that looks like that, all I can think is "GWP"!

I cancelled but resubbed.. after seeing the giltcity deal on MSA..

 

You get 12 months for $150 on giltcity , but there is a coupon code for 30% off newbies to the site.. So I ended up getting 12 months for $105... but also, Top Cash Back is offering 15% for "new customers" of gilt city.. so if that works out.. it will be $89.25 for 12 months... basically $7.50 per month.. I could not pass that up!!  

 

I have never used giltcity - they claim they will send me my voucher within the next few hours... so we'll see.

If your voucher doesn't show up, check your spam folder. Though my receipt came to my regular inbox, for some reason the voucher was sent to spam. I didn't notice until after I went to their website and just opened it from the "My Account" page.

I just got it!  Thanks.. That is way too good of a deal to pass up.

I noticed this Glossybox instagram post yesterday: "in all of our November boxes each of our subscribers will receive@marskcosmetics shimmery gold powder!"   I wouldn't mind getting everything that came in ROASM's box. I love love love masks and am always happy to get anti-aging lotions/creams/serums. I would use everything in that box.  

I know I usually get a different box than MSA, not sure how different mine is from ROASM.

I had to double check which thread I was in when I read the words tracking. lol. This is very early for Glossybox. Did you use glossydots for it? Someone on MSA posted that they usually get their box early when they redeem glossydots for it.

I am always happy with my Glossybox. I got a year sub in September, paying almost twice what you are paying per month of course. Sigh. The only thing keeping me from subbing to a second box is that next year after glossydots I will not have to sub again til November. I am definitely going to wait for a deal as good as this next year.

I didn't use Glossydots, but maybe since it is my last box (I cancelled) they are trying to sway me back with better shipping? LOL I don't know...
