I'm not sure how the prices compare, but the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel is similar (works better in my opinion) and though it's not the same thing, I get the same results (lots of dead skin to work off, super smooth skin) from Shea Terra Rose Hips Black Soap. :)

I think it was an either or item. Some people got the Pedix Heel Balm or the enzyme peel. I loved how it sloughed off a bunch of skin! It was gentle gel formula and you let it sit then rub in circles and I had little chunks of dead skin coming off! My face felt so smooth after!

I couldn't tell if it was the dead skin rubbing off, or if it was the peel itself hardening and then rubbing off in little balls....that's why I felt the peel wasn't really great for me, bc I didn't see any actual results after I used it haha

Was it ever confirmed that those of us who ordered the R29 promo would get the box that R29 showed on their blog?  It has a dupe of the Missha BB cream.

Yeah - I can't remember if it was in this thread or last month's, but GB said that it would be the only repeat item for those getting the R29 boxes. I updated my profile in hopes of receiving a different color lol.

I don't think it was the peel hardening because I used it three times and the first time I got the chunks but not the other two times. I think it was because I was using it daily and there wasn't time for dead skin to build up!

Thanks.  GB actually picked the right shade for me so I hope my luck holds for Nov!

Then I do have a suggestion! I know tons of people swear by the Cure Natural Aqua Gel. You can get it on ebay. Missha has something that's supposed to be similar which I've actually tried and liked while I used it (I stopped using it when I switched to glycolic peels instead). http://www.misshaus.com/ctrl.php?page=mainProductDetail&p_code=MSMS2076&ctg=BEA

Thank you! I adore Missha! I'll check it out.

That type of peel is popular in Asia. I have been using them for a long time. When you have dead skin it causes the product to roll up in small rubber-like balls to grab the dead skin. So technically it is the product, however it does contain picked up dead skin. Once you've gotten all the dead skin off the product will not roll up anymore. I order mine directly from Japan. I know it's the product because I have brown skin and the residue is very light, almost white.

Is that the same as the Skin79 Crystal Peeling Gel?

post #42 of 776

Thanks for this! I emailed them to ask for a sample and they are sending me one! Can't wait to try it!

I tried emailing and haven't gotten a response. What email address did you use?

post #45 of 776

This will be my first month with them! Super excited...does anyone know when they will start shipping or when they usually do.
I know there will be a delay since what happened.

Is anyone else out there having trouble communicating with Glossybox?  Here is my situation:  I joined when they first started up, but for various reasons, quit after 2 or 3 boxes.  Well, I used those pretty pink boxes to make lipstick holders.  I have too many lip products (LOL) so I really need another holder.  Since I've already invested time and energy making the first ones, I want to make another 1 or 2 lipstick holders to match and give my collection room to grow.  So, I wanted another Glossybox more for the box itself than for the products inside.  For the $21 price tag, I just didn't want to sign back up again only for a pink box.

 

However, last month I got an email with a $5 off coupon.  I figured this was my chance.  September's box looked pretty good.  I wasn't sure if I could sign up in time to get October or if I'd have to wait for November, but I decided to take advantage of the deal.  My thinking was that I would get the actual boxes I needed and in the mean time I could give Glossybox another chance to wow me with the products inside.  If I loved them, I'd stay subscribed.  If I wasn't impressed, I could quit again after only 2-3 months.  No big deal.

 

So I went online, signed back up with a credit card, and hit the send button almost as soon as I got the email.  The website looked like it didn't process my payment, so I hit send again.  It still didn't look like it went through, but I didn't want to risk hitting send a 3rd time.  If the charges had processed, double charging would be bad enough, but triple charging would be way too much.  I immediately emailed Glossybox to confirm they had me signed up again to receive a box.  A few days later, Hurricane Sandy hit.  I live 10 miles away from where it made land and I live on a bay.  We were without internet access until yesterday.  I checked my email and did not see a response from Glossy, but there were so many messages to catch up on that I could have missed something.  I am wondering if they were hit by the storm as hard or harder than I was.  I can wait on a response, but I am upset that by now the $5 off offer has expired.  If they won't honor it due to my extenuating circumstances, then I'll probably let the whole thing go and not sign up again anyway.

 

Sorry.  I know this post was a bit lengthy.  Does anyone have any thoughts?  Anyone out there who ran into similar issues?  Did Glossybox handle you the right way?  Thanks!

Glossy box was definitely in the storms path so I would hang in there. I'm sure they were without Internet and are probably slowly getting to all the emails they missed. They did say shipping would be affected in that email.
post #50 of 776
YES. I am currently so frustrated I could scream. I've been trying to contact them about a missing item for 2 weeks. I've been patient because of Sandy, but it has been 2 weeks since my first email, I've now sent 3 AND the twitter account had me send them my email and assured me that they'd be in contact, nope. Very irritating. And calling is really not an option for me, I have severe phone anxiety nearly to the point of a phobia and using the phone is difficult and I can only do it in emergencies. IRRITATED.

They've had no problem sending their "SIGN UP!" emails about 3 times since then, so I know they've had their internet back...

I have been hearing a lot about that soap. I just ordered some.

I just caved and signed up for Glossybox!  So now I sub to Glossybox, Ipsy, Sample Society and 2 Birchboxes.  I really love Birchbox, but am thinking of canceling one of my accounts. 

 

A couple of questions about Glossybox:  Do they have sneak peeks or spoilers?  How do the sample sizes compare to other beauty subscriptions?

Ive never gotten a sneak peak or spoiler, the box comes and then the site updates to show what i got.

They don't usually post spoilers. And the sample sizes in general are much larger. There is at least one full sized product per box, and so far I've received at least one makeup item per box. Their customer service leaves a bit to be desired, but the products themselves are amazing.

post #55 of 776

Every now and then they'll throw us a spoiler. Most recently it was the Illamasqua polish. They showed a picture with all the products they had given out up to date and the illamasqua was hidden in there. It's pretty rare though.

Got my order confirmation from my R29 account but nothing for my regular one. I wonder when they will send out shipping notices... 

post #57 of 776

I received my order confirmation today and have a question for you guys, lol. It is my last month and I want to renew for another 3 moths. Does anyone know of any codes for a free month if you purchase 3? Thank you!

post #58 of 776

^ my subscription is over this month too, I hope there's some kind of code worth using this month!

I just signed up this month and there was a code "LUXE" for a free luxury soap...not a deal on the price of the boxes but might be an option if there are no money saving codes.

post #60 of 776

Here's the month that I hope the fact I took advantage of the R29 deal doesn't bite me in the butt.  I'm hoping for no box envy.  At lest if I get a repeat of the bb cream, I've found that I made great use of the lighter shade by selectively blending with a darker concealer and/or applying in areas I want highlighted.  I feel pretty confident I can make use of darker shades in opposite ways--or by blending it with my lighter shade.

 

 

Since this deal is coming to a close, does anyone know if there are any other offers to get somewhat of a discount to continue my subscription? I guess there was a $5 off deal or something for a litte while?  Anything else lately?
