Good luck with getting a response from CS...I've been emailing them since the first week of Dec about an issue I had with my one of my gift boxes and still no response. Their CS is beyond abysmal and is the main thing that keeps me from wanting to continue my subscription. Also what's a white elephant gift exchange?

My office's white elephant exchange was how I got rid of my white tea bath salts (plus the PopSugar yoga dvd and a bottle of Three-Buck Chuck)!  I think it's sometimes called things like Yankee Swap or Dirty Santa.  Basically, everyone who wants to participate brings a wrapped gift.  There's usually a dollar limit placed on the exchange if you want to buy something, but just using something you already have is encouraged.  Sometimes reusing /regifting something you already have is required (it just depends on the group of people and whether everyone has random junk they want to give away).  Even better is if you have the same group of people and end up with something -- one group of my friends had a phenomenally ugly sculpture, and my office has a cribbage board -- that reappears year after year.  Whether it's a new purchase or something reused, the tackier, the better.  

 

Anyway.  Everyone brings a wrapped present.  Then everyone draws numbers and the first person picks out and opens a present from the wrapped things.  Here's where it gets fun:  The next person in numerical order can either take that person's unwrapped present or "steal" something that's already wrapped (tip:  If you're playing this in your office and your boss has a garden gnome representing her favorite sports team, DO NOT STEAL HER GNOME, especially if there are reviews/raises/bonuses in the near future).  If they take the unwrapped present, the person who had the present taken away gets to pick a new present.  Then the third person gets to pick from either of the unwrapped presents or any of the wrapped presents, and it continues in that vein until you reach the end of the people, and then the person who picked first gets to pick from all of the unwrapped presents.  Some groups use the rule that this sets off a chain reaction of stealing until someone decides to keep whatever they have, and some groups use the rule that the first person's pick-from-all-unwrapped-items ends it.  There's also usually a rule that states that an item can only be stolen three times, just so everyone doesn't steal the same thing over and over and *over*.  That gets boring (and long) *really* quickly.

I'm so sorry to hear that some of you girls are having trouble with contacting them! I think that their customer service is awesome; considering that they always help me out!

 

Anyways, Merry Christmas everyone! <3

 

 

Yeah, that's how it's been for me too. It's difficult for me to understand what would cause such a drastic difference in customer service!

If you're worried about sensitive skin, I tried it and it wasn't an issue. I'm not too impressed with the product in general, but irritation of sensitive skin wasn't one of the complaints.

Thank you so much for this! I got the same necklace and nearly passed it off to my Sister because I had no clue what the little thing was all about.

That is how it was for me until this missing box. I subbed since day one and I had great CS. UNTIL NOW.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I've tried twitter, I've tried emailing to no avail. I ordered several boxes for friends and for some reason one of the boxes is showing ordered and canceled at the same time. I knew it would be a problem so I emailed CS right away and waited and waited...no response. So now my friend didn't get her box, I've been charged for the box and GlossyBox CS is no where to be found.

My hair oil vial was missing too. Got the cardboard container but no product.frown.gif

Same here.  No hair vial and my shower gel had leaked all over everything.  Really not a good first impression.

No problems here either.

I though my vial was missing but it was deep in the bottom of the box. It fell out of the cardboard insert.

I just wanted to say that I absolutely loved the Zoya nail polish I got in this month's box! It was Electra.

 

I got this month because it was a little under $10 for me with the deal + Ebates. I won't be continuing the subscription though because I don't feel that it's worth +$20 for me. If they have more deals in the future, I'll probably swoop in for a single month purchase just for fun.

Just got an email that the Missha order shipped today! Hope yours arrives soon too!

I decided to do one more month because you can gift yourself the January sub for $15. I am a sucker lol.

Super jealous.. not only is that an awesome box but you got two jewelmint pieces? I didn't get the oil and it seem like the other west coasters didn't either. Looks like it depends on the batch since everyone else around me got the same assortment with their multi box order. But then again I have enough of this really pretty Mark to lasts me through the rest of this decade.

I personally loved this month- I got the body oil, wella hair packet, mark lipstick, pleats perfume,zoya in ziv which is the gold- I prefer storm if anyone wants to trade and I got the long necklace with the metal feathers at the bottom. I thought this box was well worth it's price and I'm really looking forward to the man repeller box- bring it on glossybox... I'm excited!!!
post #799 of 954

I was jealous of not getting the oil too!  I was lucky and headed to the trades and was able to get some that way!  I am intrigued by the whole body oil thing and have never tried it before!

Is the oil any good? I hear mix reviews about the smell but I love fragrant stuff. 

 

Also, you further prove my theory that Cali folks don't get oil. My main sub is coming next year (I know tell me about it.. complaints are pointless) so I am crossing my fingers, toes, hair, eyes for some of that awesome oil AND lipstick.

This is my first Glossybox, I decided to try it when the Black Friday promo came out. I'm pretty happy with my box. Though I'm a little confused.....are you supposed to get all of the items that the little card insert ists? I was missing 2 of the products listed. Also could someone help me out. I've heard mentions of taking surveys about the products we've received, to earn glossydots. how do we take these surveys? Also someone mentioned that you can gift yourself the Jan box for $15? Does this mean you'll receive 2 boxes (normal sub box and the $15 one) or just one box total? And my last question, I promise smile.gif if you earn enough dots for a free box, can you use those to pay for one of the monthly boxes? Thanks for all your help smile.gif

Am I the only person who hasn't received the December Glossybox yet?  I'm feeling lonely.  icon_sad.gif

If anyone wants to trade their wierd box-looking necklace, PM me. I just started compiling my trade list and it does not have everything, but let me know your wishlist and I am sure I can find good things you might like.

post #804 of 954

I also can no longer find the account log in tab on the website. This is strange.

Yes, u should receive 1 of each product on the product card. If your missing something send gb an email- they'll eventually get back to you and do the right thing. The surveys come up usually 2-3 weeks after receiving your box- in order to get a free box u need 1000 glossy points- which is approx 10 box reviews - u do receive glossy dots for referrals too- I think it's 200/referral. Sorry I can't help u out with all your questions- I'm sure someone on here can :-)

LOL! It's so gratifying to see all the products we purchased at 30% off now back to the original prices!

I am also surprised it shipped so quickly since it was the holidays and Missha had the "please allow 2 weeks" disclaimer on their site.

Btw, last January they had a huge sale on their clearance items (70% off).

I wonder if they will do the same next week?

 

Here is what I ordered :)

Mine was under the "stuffing". It slipped out but I found it under all the shredded paper.
