I just called to cancel, cuz I won't be getting this box and I probably won't be in the US for next so I won't even bother getting it, they were so quick! And they didn't get into that whole: why do you want to cancel? bs... I was done in like 2 minutes(including wait time). I love efficient cs like that <3

Anything that hasn't sold out will stay on the list until it's gone.  A few things are gone in a single season. Many things are gone in less than 1 season.  A handful of things (like the $3 Caress body wash) have been there forever because nobody picks them and they probably have thousands left over still.  There's typically around 8-ish new items per season (maybe 6-10 new items each season?)  You can tell what's older/newer as the newest things are always at the top, and the older things are at the bottom.

I think one of the bags wasn't available last time, the one with the design swirls? I know its been on there before but it wasn't shown as an option this past season for me so I've got two of the dark gray/purple set so far. 

post #825 of 941

Last time I had a hard time picking cuz I didn't want anything anti aging, all the anti aging stuff is there, so I decided to go for make up...I couldn't even find 8 things to pick :( I got 6 and didn't like anything else, I understand stuff hasn't sold out, but if people didn't choose it last season, why would they choose it for this one? 

post #826 of 941

Some things have different color choices or scents, like the Global Goddess Beauty eyeshadow and the Degree spray, I've picked the eyeshadow in a different shade each time so I've got all four (one in a trade). Another one with more choices is the Jonathon hair stuff, you can pick either a serum or a gloss.

I actually decided to order a box this season because I need a new deep conditioner and the new one they have costs 45 dollars and has great reviews. Might as well try it and get a bunch of goo to hoard for just about the same price. 

post #828 of 941

LOL goo hoarding :) yeah thats me with lip gloss smilehappyyes.gif

To be fair to myself, I also thought I was almost out of face wash until I noticed the huge 17 oz bottle of bliss's fabulous foaming face wash sitting on my counter lol. Darn it...guess my sister and my mom's christmas presents continue to grow.

People like me skip every other season.  Usually from the new items, I only like maybe 3-6 of them, so I'll wait until the next season.  That means that I'll be down to maybe 2-4 from the last season I like, and 3-6 from the new season I like, so then I'll fill with 0-3 from even older seasons, or I'll end up missing out on a couple of items I would have wanted from the combined two seasons.  I know for a fact I ordered the Nailtiques polish like 3 times because I love that stuff. I've also ordered a few face masks a few times because I like them too.  Also, since sometimes I skip and miss out on things that I would have ordered, sometimes they're left over for me to choose again later.

 

For the most part, it works out, although there's some items I'll definitely never choose (caress body wash being one, heh It's been there for over a full year or longer)

post #831 of 941

lol or the Degree stuff...why would I get something I can get cheap on the drugstore? XD when does the next season start? I canceled, cuz I won't get this one, and I probably won't come back to the US until like September next year lol...well not lol that means 6 months w/o seeing the bf icon_cry.gif

I went for it this quarter too. Since I skipped last time, I found enough things I needed/wanted this time around to cobble together a box I'm pretty happy with. Most of the stuff shows up as really pricey also, so I think I got a good value.

 

I got:

-- Intelligent Beauty Labs Hair Mask -- I LOVE hair masks and like playedinloops said, it gets great reviews and costs 45 bucks!

 

-- Skylark Sophia Lipgloss in Berry -- looks like a Fowler sisters brand? Dont care about that, but the color might suit me well

 

-- Cattina Divino Lash Mascara -- Always game to test a new-to-me mascara and the crystals on the package look like fun

 

-- Snowberry Smoothing Eye Cream -- Eh, I like getting expensive eye creams, so why not. These boxes keep me in good supply and I never have to pay those extortionist prices for eye creams

 

-- Murad Time Release Retinol Concentrate -- I tend to like all Murad products, got another of these in a different box, so figured I could use them back to back for a "real" trial run. And they say retinol actually works, right?

 

-- neuLash Eyelash Serum -- I received an eyelash serum in a Beauty Army Kit, a different brand, and want to continue to keep using that type of product as long as they are available in these boxes, so it's nice to get a new one. I think they do work for me.

 

-- Eminence Stone Crop Gel Wash -- I'm glad to pick up a face wash because, out of all the products I have kicking around, I seem to go through face washes the fastest. (Right now I am in absolute love with the Vichy Foaming Water, which I will probably repurchase when I run out.)

 

-- Raw Natural Beauty Eye Shadow Brush -- It's just nice to have lots of brushes around, so I can get away with cleaning them less often.

 

-- One of those cosmetic bags, which I sorely DO NOT need

 

And it's nice to get the $25 off $50 code too. I've got my eye on a couple of HG products:

-- A Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel

-- Juice Beauty Day Moisturizer SPF 15

 

If anyone's tried any of the stuff I got, let me know what you think!

I tried the Raw Natural Beauty brush and it's pretty good, it has shed a bit, but not much and it's super soft :)

I like that because if there was something last season that I really love I can get a back up. But the Caress should just be given to us for Christmas gifts. . .nobody is picking it from what I see.

I like this brush a lot, too. I order it with all my beauty fix boxes haha.

I skipped this season too. Why hype up the new season if over half the stuff isn't even new? Also, it makes me wonder if some of that stuff is even good anymore. Seems to me there would be a bunch of old product. Another thing, has anyone else noticed how more and more things aren't full sized?
post #837 of 941

Are there any new codes for new accounts out there?

re: not new stuff (I explained earlier how they only have about 8-ish new products a season...and new seasons are always hyped because those are the only times that new products are added)

re: sizes I think it just depends on who is providing it.  It looks like most of the new products are full sized though?

 

6oz Intelligent Beauty Labs Hair mask

Skylark full sized lip gloss x2

Spongelle (I'm assuming that it's a one size fits all deal)

4oz Hand Conditioner

7oz Nick Chavez Mousse

full size eye liner

4oz Eminence face wash

 

(Did they have 11 or 12 new items? I didn't order last season but I'm pretty sure that SkinMedica was in last season's.  I don't remember about the Sonya Dakar lotion or neuLASH serum.  The eyelash serum is a little under half sized, btw but I'm obsessed with eye growth products so...it was in my order lol)

 

I got the hair mask, the lash grower, and then I think a TON of eye creams and lotions lol.  Eye creams are always expensive and I never know which ones are good, so it feels better to get a whole bunch in a BeautyFix kit than to spend $50 on a single cream and not even know if it's working.

LOL! I got so freaked out, seeing that another season had started and I didn't think I had cancelled my account with them. But I called in just now, and I had already cancelled. They were really nice bout it, too. I am going to be extra super careful about any kind of subscription stuff, from now on.

When is the next cycle for beautyfix?
