Glossybox December 2012 - Page 10

post #271 of 954

Guess I'm in the minority here, because I would rather take beauty advice from someone who already achieved flawless complexion, which is why my only beauty guru is my derm who has the most beautiful skin as a result of years of chemical peels and a strict skincare routine. When I saw her photo from I think 10 years ago I couldn't believe that's the same woman!

whomp whomp. cancelled. Its been $170 that I really don't think was worth it. I just got my October and Nov boxes last week. 

 

fail fail fail

 

Guess I'll save the money for May when I graduate and finally get to get a pomeranian puppy :D

I posted more details on this in another thread but suffice it to say I WILL NEVER go back to Glossybox no matter how much I like the items they send - which I DO. I've always said the items they send out are great products BUT considering items arrive damaged and getting a hold of someone is difficult and for some impossible I just can't justify spending $21 HOPING the items come intact and undamaged.

 

Am I expecting too much?

post #274 of 954

Hi guys, just wondering when I should expect to get charged for my January box? This is my first month with GlossyBox. I finally signed up because they were offering the 40% off discount for the December box, but I'll probably cancel after getting it unless it really wows me. I just want to make sure I cancel in time. Thanks! :-)

I already canceled. Just getting the 40 percent box. They have too many issues and From what I have seen they will be charging soon.

I'll going to cancel too - this will be my first box with the 40% off code. Have these shipped yet!? I haven't received a shipping email or anything

Mine too. My order is complete but under shipping method it says no shipping info available. 

 

&& I just cancelled my account. The products seem great but not with all the hassle it seems to come with.

post #279 of 954

checked my tracking info and it shows expected delivery 12/20-12/21.  i then cancelled my account (again) because the site is still a mess and i still don't see value in it for me.

post #280 of 954

I haven't had any issues minus them charging me again for the discount box (which I just canceled the PayPal subscription and my SIL can get 2 boxes I guess) but seeing the issues makes me so worried that one day I will have a problem. It is so hard to unsubscribe though. I am hoping they turn a new leaf like MyGlam/Ipsy did.

Yay for puppies!!!!! I love doggies :3 if you do get one...would you post pictures? Puppies make me squeak <3 Sorry I turn into a 4 year old when it comes to doggies and puppies :D

 

 

Also my gift sub from glossybox says I'll get it between the 18th and 19th...but there's nothing on my actual box

post #282 of 954

I got my box!!!!!!!!

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Theme is Glamour Glitz and Gloss

Ecru New York Hair Care – Acacia Protein Oil – tiny sample 1ml

Foresetessentials Luxurious Ayurveda – Madurai Jasmine Magra Bath &Shower oil – 3.38 fl oz (half size)

HeartLand Fragrance- Bath Salts 5.5 oz (deluxe sample) White Tea is my fragrance

Pleats Please- tiny sample – 0.03 fl oz 1 ml

Zoya Nail Lacquer- full size! Color is Storm (a beautiful charcoal with sparkles)

Instead of a coupon code like PopSugar did, they picked out a piece of jewelry.

It’s actually a fun cocktail ring! Giant green glass stone in antiqued gold setting.  Surprisingly cute. 

Comes in a velvet pouch...perfect for re-gifting.

 

I think you may be happy with this box...despite two of the samples being teeny tiny.

Love the nailpolish! It’s perfect!

 

Sorry I can't upload pics from my phone

I am running out now to the Refinery29/GB pop up shopping event...

so may take a while to post a pic...but

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's a fun box. 

It really is. The ring is either going to make it or break it for people.
If you get a fun piece of jewelry you will be thrilled, if not I can see the complaints already! 
lol
But I think it was such a GREAT idea to throw in a piece of "play" jewelry.
It's like a real gift.
 
The Bath & Shower oil smells wonderful btw. 

 

 

Hope your boxes arrive soon and safe and sound!

This box sounds amazing!! 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I wonder if everyone is getting a ring. I have huuuuge hands and I think the Jewelmint rings are actually sized, so there's no way it's going to fit me. I bet I could gift it to someone, though. 

 

 

 


That being said, I bought my friend a December box with the gift code, and I'm so glad I did! What a great box for her to get. I'm so glad GB didn't disappoint for their holiday box.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The ring.

Mine has a giant green glass stone in a gold setting. It's a HUGE ring.
 
I can't find it on the jewel mint site though.
Where did you find the name of your ring?

Well you are lucky to still have the surprise on the way. :)

It's a happy box!

post #290 of 954

Let me know if you have any box questions.

I won't be back on here for a few hours though.

post #291 of 954

I recognized it's sister ring on the site.  You can google the name to see pictures of it.  "Madison Ave Ring" I wonder how many different ones they sent?

post #292 of 954

Wow the box sounds amazing, I'm glad I'll have two coming this way :)

post #293 of 954

omg that sounds amazing. I'm really happy I got a box! I really wanted that polish so I'm glad I didn't buy it ahead of time or else I'd be so annoyed right now lol. I got one for my sister too (but like, on behalf of my dad because he was like DON'T KNOW WHAT TO GET HER) so I'm glad it's nice. LOL it's going to look so nice compared to my Oct Ipsy which I got her and am giving on behalf of myself XD;; Definitely a "shinier" subscription. Ah well, my dad needs more bonus points with her.

I do not know anything about the other items but the polish looks cool!  My account says shipped but no shipping or tracking number is posted...

post #295 of 954
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ah, I wish they didn't send rings! My fingers are tiny, and I know one of my friends that I sent a gift box to also has tiny fingers! I wish they sent earrings or something instead. 

I'm not personally so psyched for this box...two bath items (literally, bath items) and two hair items. :/

 

though I guess I can't really complain too much, it's fantastic for the price considering the promo codes this month.

post #296 of 954

I am excited about the ring especially since they are sending very different ones.  It's unexpected, for sure!  I think this should be a pretty good little extra gift for my mom too.  The only thing is, there's no way she'll wear that color Zoya.  I hope they send out color variants, but that may not be the case.  Although they are 2/2 on the same color, so it's not exactly a large sample to determine that information just yet.

Because if something helps them, then maybe it will help me...whereas it's kind of hard to take someone seriously if they look like a wax doll, or you never see them without 50 layers of makeup...so who knows what their actual skin looks like. I don't think a person has to be perfect to have something to offer when it comes to beauty advice/product recommendations.

Exactly. Well said.
I am far from perfect. I have keratosis and eczema on my face from time to time.

Ahhh I can't wait for my box.

Newgistics is /extremely/ slow going from one coast to the other. And the tracking estimate for both says Dec. 21-27th, which means it'll likely show up right after Christmas. Hoping it errs on the early side of that window.

Nothing is showing up on the 40% off box, but for the normal sub I have tracking stating the box left New Jersey and should be here12/20 or 12/21
