Yes, this! I am having a total love/hate with finally (hopefully!) seeing what my box is tomorrow. Maybe it will be fabulous? The box of doom? Gah! What will it be!

Yay, got my first box (the one attached to my main account) the other one should be here in a few days, hopefully Friday, but I doubt it, so probably Monday, which is good, as I am going home for Thanksgiving on Tuesday afternoon. I am working on a full blog post, but I snapped a few pics.

For those that got the OLO Neroli do you feel that it's worth the $39 price in the BB shop?  I'm thinking of buying it; i LOVE body oils and i have my 3 month promo code to use.

 

If anyone has one they want to trade (any sent but rose) let me know and I can send you my list.  Also if i get the pink-ish Stilla illuminizer i'll probably look to trade that as well.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for your input ladies!! Ahh one vote for each I still don't know lol.

 

So I just tried to place an order and it won't make the plus two pack free, has anyone else had this issue/ know how to solve it and make it free?

 

Edited:

 

Oh no, can you not use your anniversary code AND get a +2 pack??

I called customer service about this yesterday and they said that you can not use both anniversary code & +2 pack because they are both considered "promotions" and only 1 promotion per order is allowed :(

Glad I'm not receiving the ModelCo lipgloss in one of my BB boxes; I just received an email from Beauty Box 5 that they will be in their November boxes this month. Yay! claps.gif

Very interesting! But I don't really need those items right now. :-/

post #1634 of 2328

Email for it is out too:

 

 

Here's the list of stuff they're including:

That makes it sound like it's going to be only one box. LOL no pens though, so you can all relax now.

Same here...need none of those.  The only thing that sounded interesting was the Dean and Deluca rosemary salt stuff.  But I can just pick that up at Dean and Deluca up the street.  LOL  

 

I'm sure there are some interesting things in the store though....haven't poked around in there....but the box is a bust for me.  :)

I was going to say that too but it doesn't seem to be in their products list ;) I'm guessing it's more something that has a DIY-feeling included in the photo.

post #1639 of 2328

the limited edition home box looks really nice. but as a student who hardly has time to even take care of myself, i really won't have use for much of these things right now.

post #1640 of 2328

i finally got an update on my shipping its in my state (NJ) but projected for 11/20.. my popsugar may just come first.

I got box #20 im excited for the mascara as I didn't get it in my ipsy bag.. Anyone try the mascara yet ?? reviews?

post #1641 of 2328

Box was in Philly on the 14th - something that did not show on my tracking until this AM.  Hmmm..perhaps today or tomorrow it will make it's way to my mailbox.  

 

I totally ate everything in my love with food box....(well the fiancé ate two of the things I didn't want...).  I still have to play with some of my stuff in my Ipsy bag.  AND I have another Cherry Culture order coming in.    I have a problem.  I cannot buy ANY more makeup products or stuff from my subscriptions.  

 

Online shopping Damn You! **raising fist in the air and looking up to nonexistent camera**

I usually find truffle oil at my Home Goods -- I got so many yummy food items there. (that is my other shopping addiction place)

lots of truffle oils found in grocery stores and other stores like homegoods are not made of real truffles..they just contain truffle aroma - thats why i havent tried it yet.  

do u like the ones with just the aroma?

A little goes a long way!  I'm not a fan of things with truffle oil...but taste is subjective. :D

post #1647 of 2328

I'm bored at work so I figured I'd share my "Oh Sh!t Kit" with everyone. I love that I'm not the only person who carries one!

 

1000

 

 

-Nail clippers

-Feminine hygiene products

-Smart phone/glasses wipes

-Mini deodorant

-Mini perfume

-Mascara

-Chap stick

-Hair tie

-Bobby pins

-Double sided tape

-Antiseptic gel

-Band-Aids

-Advil

-Benadryl

-Moisturizer

-Lighter

 

And it all fits in my Ipsy bag with plenty of room to spare.

post #1648 of 2328

I never received a shipping notice (first time ever for me); but my box did arrive just now.  I received box #20 and while I am always VERY happy to receive mascara, I am once again underwhelmed with my box overall.  

 

I'm not talking money value, just the fact that the past 4 months in a row my box has caused ZERO excitement for me.  Yes, that's subjective and totally emotion based... but just not feelin' the love these days I suppose.  

 

Oh and the perfume sample (Atelier - Rose Anonyme) gave me an instant headache... but the chocolate covered potato chip seems to be helping.  roflmao.gif

 

PS:  I just now tried the mascara and it really is GOOD.

The DIY pack (with sharpies) has something to do with designing your own fabric napkins (I think). I just ordered my box because I love Core Bamboo products as well as anything for the home. I plan on using everything so this box is great for me (I convinced my husband it is a Christmas present for myself so I can't actually open the box when I get it)

post #1650 of 2328

Still no tracking update/email on my November box!  I emailed them over the weekend about this (see one of my previous posts) since I had had a tracking number since earlier this month!  Should I email again? I mean, I do see that some people who were in the same boat are finally getting shipping info....but how long do I wait before emailing again?

 

Now watch, as soon as I post this, I get email confirmation that it finally shipped.
