Nice, lol. So today I came back for the day to pick up my 2 boxes and behold! There were 4 boxes waiting for me. I thought the Glossy Santa was especially generous until I opened 4 identical boxes! -.- 3 of them had the same ring.. which all look either really vintage (or bad tarnish) down to the 4 Electra nail polishes.

I went through some of my stuff this morning to update my tradelist and I was a little surprised at how much I actually have :-)

I broke it up into two orders so I could get two of the free Signature BB Creams. (Didn't want the serum I am in serum overload)

I started a Missha post over in the Sales and Coupons forum btw,...they are having their HUGE winter sale now, so prices are even better then when we bought over the holidays.
I will post my haul over there when it arrives!
Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

How is the consistency for the glosses and lipsticks btw?
Yep, I like their BB Creams too! I really like the glosses and lipsticks that I bought...they aren't too sticky, they are moisturizing and they stay on decently.

I'm so confused... I've been using the oil after I showered- like a lotion. My bf read the container and said I'm suppose to use it in the shower after I bathe. What's the proper way to use- I was thinking it was like body oil- am I wrong??

It's a body oil, they suggest using it in the shower I think to avoid messes, and after you bathe because it is best absorbed while the skin is still warm and damp, your pores are open. I have been putting it in my bath water, personally, but I normally apply oils outside of the shower, and I never make messes with them.

I put it in my hand while in the shower and rub it all over. Last night I used it in bath water and it was awesome. I REALLY love this stuff. The smell is strong but I find once it's mixed with the water the smell mellows.
 

My skin was so soft after I use it I think I'll keep it in my regular routine.

So jealous. I enjoyed the smell and I love bath oils. Would have been perfect if it didn't give me a raging migraine.

I love oils too but this one wasalso way too strong for me, I had to trade it. Not to go on about The Body Shop again but I use their beauty oil sometimes after the shower. I have the coconut one now but will prob get sweet lemon next time as I looooove that scent of theirs. I also like philosophy body scrubs because they are nice and oily to use in the shower.

It is so funny how different smells do different things for people. This jasmine oil is perfect for me... Strong, but nice. I get headaches from many perfumes, including the Pleats Please and I haven't tried anything from the body shop in years as the smell of the store gave me a headache the last time I went in, ten or so years ago. I can't avoid Barh and Body Works as the smell seeps out into the mall but would if I could as the smells there also give me a headache.

As for the oil... I do use it in the shower. I think that if your skin is still damp and your pores are open the oils holds the moisture in, so I've always used oils in the shower before I dry off. It seems to help my skin stay soft longer.

Thanks ladies!!!
post #852 of 954

Has anyone been able to complete their December product surveys yet? Mine aren't showing up and I received my box a few weeks ago :/

post #853 of 954

Hey ladies! I just got my box today. I haven't seen anyone with the same box so I thought I'd post what I got!! I got....

 

ModelCo lipgloss/lipstick duo (fullsize)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
OC8 Professional Mattifying gel (fullsize)
Pleats Please
The hair serum foil packet
Oscar blandi heat styling spray
jewelmint necklace (the one with the colored beads around the chain, it's really super pretty!)
 
 

 

Just wondering if anyone has received these products and what they think of them :)

post #854 of 954

wow! that's an amazing box...mine sucked downkey bawls, except for the Zoya...wait, aren't you supposed to get 5 items...you got 4, the hair serum and Pleats Please are supposed to be extras...

post #855 of 954

So, I've been seeing Avon salespeople leaving comments on Glossybox unboxing videos, saying that they sell Mark Cosmetics and leaving their info.

 

I would have preferred to have received a lipstick in my box, but I'm not really sure what to make of seeing random Avon ladies making the rounds to solicit business in youtube comment sections...huh.gif

 

What do you guys think?  Seems kind of unorthodox to me, but then again, if someone wants Mark makeup, they're probably gonna need an Avon lady, sooo, I dunno what to think...given the nature of that business.

I doubt the December box surveys will show up until mid-January. They seem to be a month late with those.

Was this your first box? The OC8 and ModelCo lipgloss were sent out in previous boxes so if you haven't received those yet or are new then that's probably why you got them. I love the OC8 gel!

Thanks! Only on my second box so I haven't yet gotten accustomed to the timing on everything. 

post #858 of 954
So,I emailed glossybox on 12/27 at 2:18pm about my missing Zoya. I received a reply stating they were behind with emails but would get back with me soon. I received a reply today stating they were sending me a replacement Zoya. Hopefully anyone waiting on a reply should hear back soon! I hope it gets to me soon (they are closed till Wednesday) and I'm so happy my first issue was dealt with. WHEW!!!!! (Hope I didn't jinx myself!)
post #859 of 954

Same thing happened to me, the only thing that was different was the jewelmint pieces other then that exact same box.

No surveys here yet! I think they usually take their time with posting those.

That is the same box I received. I'm assuming this one is the gift one I purchased for a friend since I'd received both the

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

OC8 and ModelCo lipgloss/stick duo before. I was surprised that there wasn't a Zoya polish as I was under the impression that ALL the boxes received both a Zoya polish and a Jewelmint piece. This box has the bird cage bracelet which is quite odd in that it is not hinged. i have very small wrists, but can barely  get it on (afraid to put it on all the way that I won't be able to get it off). And in what I'm assuming was my reg. sub box the jewelmint piece was a silver ring with a large circle with what looks just like those round sprinkles/pearls in semi-bright colors. its very chunky and uncomfortable as it restricts movement of my middle and pinky fingers. i would NEVER purchase either jewelmint piece and there is NO way that the value of each is approx. $30, more like $3 (IF even that!)

and i'm still waiting for a replacement Nov box as mine came missing several things. I'm quite unhappy with the lack of prompt customer service. I first emailed CS during the first couple days of Dec. regarding the sloppy Nov. box and a week or so later was told they'd send out a new box, but no tracking number arrived in my email nor has a box landed on my doorstep. I understand it is the holidays, but there is still no excuse for such poor customer service. did anyone else have any problems with either the Nov or the Dec boxes? Did anyone else purchase a gift box during one of the sales?

post #862 of 954

I purchased the December box on Black Friday and then a few days later I ordered a gift box. I received one box but now the other. Is it normal to take this long? Has this happened to anyone else this month? Is there a number to call them? Or should I just email them?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

 

New to the group but wanted to chime in on the question from wldflowur13 about whether you are supposed to get every item that Glossybox shows each month.  I don't think you do get all the items.  I have been subscribing for several months and I've never received all the items in one box. 

 

I looked at some of the other threads on this forum and it looks like people get different boxes each time.  Am I missing something? 

 

Thanks!

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

It looks like there are two different questions here.  wldflowur13 is asking about the card that arrives in the box.  Yes, you should get every item listed on that card.  AMaas seems to be asking about the products listed on the Glossybox website.  Those are all of the items that are sent out in the various boxes, kind of like Birchbox's page where they list everything they sent out in a particular month, whether you received it or not.  You will typically only get five of those items, although there have been occasions where they send out something that isn't listed on the site (one month, I got a blush that wasn't on that month's page, although it did show up on another month's page.  I don't know whether it was up on my survey page because they never got around to putting my surveys up that month despite multiple requests).

 

And as for taking surveys, they will put surveys up on your account eventually under the SURVEYS link on your account page.  Last month, the November surveys went up around December 7th.  My October surveys never went up, though, so I emailed them five or six times over a period of more than two weeks starting after everyone else had already reported having their surveys posted.  I think I actually had my November box before they ever responded.  I *know* people were receiving them because my last request to them was to see if they would just give me the points already since the next round of boxes were in-hand for some people.  They gave me 500 Glossydots instead of putting up the surveys.

They gave you 500 Glossydots for just one missing round of surveys? That's odd because each survey is only worth 20 Glossydots.

I think it was more because I was really, *really* pissed off at their complete lack of response for more than two weeks. It seemed like a scramble to save a customer on the verge of canceling. It might have worked if the boxes I've received since weren't boxes of fail for me.
post #867 of 954

Dang, this was my first Glossybox and I didn't even know about the surveys! :/     It probably doesn't matter since I cancelled anyway.

Holy crap, I can't even get my Argan Oil replaced, 500 points would make me happy, LOL!

I've given up. Four emails got me nothing but stress. It would be fun to get accidental too much stuff or extra points, but I think they have my email address on "ignore", and I'll just be great foul I've gotten my boxes so far at a good discount and quit being bothered by their lack of response. I just won't ever pay full price for a box, unlike other subs that are worth their full price to me.

that is why I cancelled them.  The CS issues make them not worth it.  If they resolved them, they would be a box (for me at least) to sub to.
