Blissmo Box - Page 6

What is with them and the chocolate? ;) 

 

I'd rather see a chocolate lip balm and soap in the chocolate lover's box: that would have been super cute! I'm feeling no regrets that I canceled, even though this stuff is nice. 

 

I have chocolate almond lip balm from these people and it's lovely.

Pffft. Rather than the chocolate soap bar, I got a seaweed soap bar :-/. It smells how it sounds.

Oh no!! Seaweed? Strange....but I bet that's really good for your skin!

post #154 of 203

Yeah, true. I'll still use it up.

SO JEALOUS of that chocolate soap, though.


I agree...I just cancelled blissmobox and last month was my first month getting conscious box. I loved it! I got shipment notification today for conscious box and am looking forward to it. I was completely unimpressed with blissmobox, because of the shipping issues and the low value of the boxes. Oh well, maybe they'll get it together someday and I can re subscribe!

Yeah...and it's a great idea in theory, and I LOVE that you can choose a theme each month, but they've got to deliver the value/quality and service to make it worth it.

Seaweed and kelp are amazing for your skin! And your body. It has so many vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and amino acids that help with healping and protecting skin.

 

I use a body wash with kelp to help repair my skin and make it soft and radiant :)

Those apple chips are so good!

post #162 of 203

I think you spelled it right! I will give them another month probably.


Those apple chips are good! So are the caramels which I hogged & did not share. The tortilla chips were good too.

I just saw on their website that they will be raising prices later this month! Guess that was my last one, I think its spendy enough as it is now.

post #164 of 203

What!? Wow! I wasn't too happy with the price as it is, but this will likely cause me to cancel. I'm sure I won't be the only one,so it seems kind of counterintuitive for them to do that. The value for the money just isn't there.

That's terrible! It's definitely not worth that much. I'm glad I got the 3-month sub just because I want to give them 3 months to see if I really like them. But I won't be resubbing when I get back in September if they raise the price.

 

I think i'll get the food box for next month, even though this beauty one is starting to grow on me.  The eye cream is actually really nice! I'm still not sure if I want to use or trade the soap since I'm just not a bar soap person

Actually I just noticed that it says NEW MEMBER prices will go up...I wonder if this means current members will keep the same prices

post #167 of 203

Your right, it does say new member prices. I'm going to keep them until glossybox opens.

 

Did you ladies get the email to pick your next box? I chose hello morning. I was tempted to get the mystery box. My hubby made a good point...what if they send the dog box for your mystery box (we don't have a dog!).

post #168 of 203

This will be my first blissmobox. I choose the beauty and bath one since I love bath/spa products! smile.gif I signed up last month on March 27th and was charged $22 not $19.

post #169 of 203

I also chose the morning box!

 

MakeupA - if you're intersted, I got the box you chose this month and I posted what's in it on my blog (see link in my sig). Just so you're aware, only one of the products was for bath/spa...
 

post #170 of 203

Thanks javagirl for the heads up! Of course I Had to peek! I'm excited to try the soap and lip balm but I'm not sure it's worth the $22 (though I know the products in the box are worth more than that) I will probably give them another month before I cancel.

No problem! The chapstick is SUPER oily (like straight up almond oil) so I don't like it. But the rest of the box is great! The eye cream is amazing, I use it every morning and night. It's the only eye cream that i've used that regularly!

I'm pretty excited for this one!! I went from 6 subs down to just this one and BB :(  I didn't end up feeling like my money was being spend wisely with the other ones. As much as I think this isn't worth the price, I at least feel like i'm getting products I use.

post #177 of 203

Mine is supposed to be here tomorrow. Its my last one as I already canceled. I'm down to bb,ss & julep. SS may be getting the boot. I'm giving them one more month. Did anyone else get their tracking numbers?

post #178 of 203

I just canceled my membership too, but that's mostly because i'll be gone soon. If this one is decent I may reconsider joining again in the fall...but since they're raising the prices i'm not so sure...

post #179 of 203

Just got my tracking number today. Not that excited about this one since they didn't have any beauty related options. I asked for the "morning" box, but don't care about shakes or whatever else might show up in what I imagine will be a lifestyle box.

 

Though I was :-/ about the Wembe soap in last month's box, I ended up loving it. It smells so fresh and bright (I got the seaweed), and has dual textures for a great exfoliating effect. And I love how rough and tumble it looks. I'll probably end up ordering some other flavors on their site. Some things are 50% off right now, if anyone is interested.

 

So what I'm saying is, sometimes I whine, but then end up being pleasantly surprised, so I shouldn't be too down on the upcoming box. Yet :).

post #180 of 203

bummed out-didn't realize that when i chose the mystery box, that they were just pulling from previous boxes and resending.  for some reason i was under the impression that they were pulling different items from past boxes and creating a new one.  i ended up getting the box i didn't want from, i think, last month that had the neutrogena night cream.  totally underwhelmed, especially since the box was worth less than what i paid for it.
