Wonder what curve balls we will see this month? ;-)
post #2 of 512
not sure, but it's always exciting with them albeit sometimes in a bad way. strangely enough, i still look forward to getting the pale pink boxes every month more so than any of my other beauty subs. i guess i like the drama. :P

I was wondering when someone was going to start July Glossybox thread! 

 

It looks like there is a product unveiled for the July glossybox on their website.

What do you guys think it is?  It looks like l'Occitane hand cream, but I haven't seen that version before.

I just cancelled yesterday and was so proud of myself, and already I want to resub because I really want to try this product. I am going to see if there are any other spoilers/deals otherwise I might just purchase this product seperately and be able to pick a shade I want.

I'm definitely excited to try the lip balm! Hopefully they will come in good color shades.

Seems like a beach theme would have made more sense in June or even May. With the rate Glossybox ships stuff out, by the time most people get their boxes there will be maybe 2-3 weeks left of summer for most folks.

 

If they shipped on the schedule of Birchbox or even Ipsy I'd say beach would be a great July theme, but when chances are most people won't even see their boxes until August.. meh. Not enough time to really get much use of the stuff, let alone be worth it to buy a full size of anything you might really like. I had been hoping for a good 'beach' or summer themed box too, but the timing on this one is pretty meh.

It's so hard to cancel subs... I've been up and down with GB but it's still one of my fave subs... maybe because when they get it right it's like MAGIC but when they get it wrong... it's like super bad... I hated the 1 yr anniversary box. LAME. But I liked the Man Repeller box :)

I dunno I think of August as the "dog days of summer" but my bf works for a University and August is "back to school" for him.  Guess it depends on how you look at it.  Where I live summer isn't over until the last weekend of September and we have a "take back the beach" from tourists events. claps.gif  I go to the beach all the way into October some years, depending on weather.

Same! I think of summer as more August because here that's usually the only hot month (July is hot, but it is usually rainy) so August feels like summer should feel. Plus it is usually warmish outside until end of October or beginning of November.

New to MUT. Been stalking your group long enough to have been thrilled to sign up for my first box, only to then become somewhat disillusioned with the whole Bondi "Glossygate" fiasco. Got my box today and I was actually pleased. Looking forward to July's, but a little surprised that the sneak preview item is from last month's UK box. Is that pretty normal for GB? Will they likely copy more items from that box to this one?

I'm excited to try this lip gloss they show. It looks neat and the color they show looks pretty, and seems to get good reviews.  I just hope I get all the products in this next box, lol.  I was shorted an item on Junes.

My one year sub with GB just ended and I didn't plan on renewing it.  However, if I use the 20% off code for a new one year membership, the cost per box will be $14.67.  I'm on the fence...

I saw that this morning as well! It's definitely an enabler for me to get a pre-paid sub! I don't know if I can do a year-long commitment but I can see myself doing a 3-6 month.

Welcome to GB and MUT! As a new GB subscriber, the whole Bondi fiasco has made it hard for new customers to trust the company.

I don't mind getting products from the UK version, especially since I sub for this in order to try new products and brands not found widely in the U.S.

The thing that annoys the crap out of me, is GB putting products from previous boxes into new boxes. For example, the may box with the modelco dual lipstick and lipgloss. It was in a fall 2012 box, then it was added to the june bridal box. While I like full sized products, it felt like they had so many on their hands and needed to offload it into as many boxes as possible.

I probably would have bought the bride box if it hadn't included the cheek and lip stain since I got it in March or April's box and I didn't like it at all.

 

I don't mind getting older products or products from past international GB boxes though.

I wasn't going to continue my sub for July but that 20% off code has piqued my interest!

 

Does anyone think the item to the far right in the "sneak peek" picture looks like a Bondi polish? I know a lot of stuff has that cylindrical look, but it would be pretty cool if they were included this month.

i doubt it. the ceo/founder has been throwing shade at glossybox via twitter, so i don't think we'll be seeing a glossybox x bondi partnership any time soon.

What's the 20% code?

Thank you! My first box was the June Box, so I would have thought I would be getting their e-mails, but I didn't get this!
