Glad the shampoo is a decent size. not sure about the CC cream yet. I have way too many lip products but I do love getting them. I also received a men's cologne which isn't pictured and probably won't use the renttherunway card. have to check out the website 1st.

Yes!  I'm getting box 8 and i was so hopping for the nude lipgloss and not the hot pink.. and that looks nude :)  SO EXCITED NOW!!!

You should contact them about the Nicole Richie. Your confirmation shows the gift set, meaning you paid for the gift set. It was a pricing error and they should have either canceled the order, or sent you the gift set. They are not supposed to just send you something else, since that is not what you paid for.

The N.4 Shampoo is exciting because I got the N.4 masque in the pick 2 sample pack! Great sample size too. 

Love the Hot Mama. I surprisingly don't have a lot of blush.

Going to gift the Mox balm because I have too many balms to use.

I have a bottle of the Juicy perfume already. Gosh, that stuff has been out for yearssss! I wish they'd at least sample newer/obscure fragrances. (Like the Juliette Has a Gun brand, had never heard of it, now it's a fave.)

Tweezerman file, cute. Might gift.

Meh about the RTR "gift card"  If I'm going to spend that much I want to have something besides pictures to show for it. lol

 

Love how there's a lot of pink. Me likey pink.

 

(Excuse the random crap situation going on in the photo.)


This is my box too.  I like it!  I got my box early (before the 10th) so it was exciting not knowing what was gonna be in it!  If I keep BB for another month or two I think I will make sure not to look on my page before getting it because it made it all that much more exciting.

Thanks. I just sent them an email. Even my shipping email stated it was the gift set. We'll see what they say.

Arggg.  I got the lip gloss in Striptease.  I haven't seen it yet though.  Does anyone know if it makes a big difference in what your lips normally look like?  I really kind of wanted a color, but I guess I'll have to try it out to see.

Okay so i just checked the website out and looked at my box. I got #3, so i got kerastase foil packs, model co lip gloss, juice beauty cc cream, thymes lotion and my 5th item was a foil pack of thymes lotion in a different scent. 

 

Because 2 of my items are Thymes lotion I can only review 4 items this month! That is a big time bummer nud.gifonly 40 review points for me this month! I'm glad I took advantage of that extra Trisha Prettyman review a few months back!

Yep, that's what I was talking about earlier. Bleh. 

 

 

Did anyone else get the 20% off coupon, and are you buying anything? I was hoping something like that would come up around this time, and I bought the Youngblood setting powder. Reaaaaally glad I waited because I had $30 in points and with the 20% off I only paid $2!! Success! :D

Crossing my fingers for my box today...it always seems to be here the day after the estimated date! I hate how my shipping never updates though, my last update is from the 7th saying it's about 25 minutes away.

Does anyone know if I can use the rtr10 code to buy a gift subscription?
post #1691 of 2321

I looove how the tracking always takes so long to update. Mine arrived in Coppell 2 days ago and only just updated showing that today. I was starting to think my box had fallen through the cracks during shipping!

post #1692 of 2321

So my box was supposedly "delivered" on monday, yet I never got it! :(

Either the post office delivered to the wrong address or it got lost in the craziness of holiday packages, or it was sitting in the lobby of my building and someone accidentally took it. (And i do mean accidentally...I wasn't being sarcastic)

 

Spoke to BB customer service just now and they were wonderful! They are shipping out a new box asap. They can't promise it will arrive by the holidays but they will do their best. I was just so happy to hear a live person who was actually helpful. (especially after all the current GB Customer Dis-Service abuse). So yay BB.

 

On a separate note, does anyone know what is in the welcome box for December?

I am thinking about ordering a gift subscription.

 

Thanks!

Mine's been in Coppell since Saturday, with my ipsy glam bag. Supposed to be delivered today. I could have walked there in that time. Except for that whole stupidly cold for Texas thing we've had going all weekend.

post #1694 of 2321

Finally talked to someone at BB, they said because I am a new subscriber (got my invite on the 3rd, billing went thru on the 5th) my box will go out later... "It should go out within a week or so..." blink.gif

 

But I am happy to know that I am getting a box!  Now if only I could stop obsessively checking my email/BB page!  And Cindy at BB is very sweet and helpful. Cheers to her!

For those asking about this months welcome box , mine had the following:
- Oscar Blandi spray (travel size)
-mox lip butter
- twistband in silver
- color club nail polish in status update
- Harvey prince eu flirt ( vial sample)
-- lifestyle extra was a tili bag ( printed quart size ziploc bag)


I think I read about one more variation but all I can Recall it having was the eyeko liner . HTH

I'm in Houston so it's not quite that close to me haha. Mine should be delivered tomorrow, I was just getting nervous seeing the expected delivery date but no updates since the 7th in Edgewood! I love cold weather but I hate the first "real" cold of the year because I always get super sick. My immune system is terrible.

This is a little off-topic, but do you guys usually get free shipping on orders from the BB shop? I just made my second purchase and I didn't have to pay anything for shipping (and it was only $12).

You only get free shipping on products that were sent out in the boxes for that month! What did you order?

i can't remember the last time i paid for shipping in their store. if they charge me shipping for something i just get it somewhere else. they're having free shipping for orders over 25 bucks until 12/31

post #1701 of 2321

First time poster here. But I am also new to BB. This month will be my first. I am getting OCD with checking my acct. with them and my e-mail for a tracking number. I am super excited  drunken_smilie.gifto get my BB package! I hope it gets here before Christmas!!!!

Now you get free shipping if you order any product from any brand that was sampled during the month, even if that specific product wasn't sampled.

Hmm, well I don't know if my item would qualify then! I bought the little pack of Benefit skin care items, which included the eye cream they sent out this month. But I also just looked and I didn't pay for shipping when I bought Viva La Juicy in May, which they weren't sending out that month? I'm definitely not complaining, I'm just not used to not paying for shipping!

post #1704 of 2321

The bad part is that I just looked at my box history to see when I received the Viva La Juicy and ruined this month's box for myself despite my best efforts not to, haha.

post #1705 of 2321
I tried out the CC cream from juice beauty this morning. Not a fan at all... It's greasy and has a nasty grassy smell. Plus, the coverage was extremely light! I felt like I just used a moisturizer. Curious to know other people's thoughts.

I also used the number 4 clarifying shampoo. It wasn't as clarifying as I would have hoped it would be. It said it was very concentrated and to emulsify it first, which I did. I still had to use a lot on my hair. It was moisturizing though which was nice. Maybe that's why it didn't feel as clarifying. I was expecting more of a squeaky clean.

I don't think you can - I bought a gift sub yesterday and tried to use it but it said the code was invalid. I was able to apply points though!

Scratch that, it doesn't have the eye cream after all. That's what I get for not paying attention...It must have been free shipping because they sampled a Benefit product this month.

The benefit set counts because you get free shipping on ALL benefit products this month, because they are sampling the eye cream!

I love this new system because I was able to replace my eyeko skinny mascara with free shipping because they were sampling the eyeliner!

If your hair is actually squeaky clean after you shampoo it, it means that it's washed out all your natural oils and could leave it too dry after leading to damage.  Great!  That means it's clarifying without stripping moisture.  arco.gif

Makes sense..I just prefer that "stripped hair" feel. biggrin.gif I'm having a good hair day, so perhaps the shampoo played a part in that!
