Thanks for the welcome! I'm on the waitlist for Birchbox. :(  I also had my eye on Sample Society but I'm trying not to get out of control. We'll see how long that lasts!

If you like subs, I highly recommend looking at Birchbox, Sample Society and Look Bag. Welcome aboard! :)

 


 

I can't believe a company would knowingly send out expired food products and try to justify it! That's such a lawsuit waiting to happen.

It's not "under the bus". It's "up on a pedestal" :P

 

And your GGG experience saved me from that hell, so I'd say "good" influence!

Currently in order of what I like best..

 

MyGlam - I'm seriously loving this one.  I guess it just fits me.

Birchbox - I feel like it introduces me to so many brands I wouldn't get to try otherwise.

Beauty Army - I got in on the first 300 subscriptions but after the first box I'm just kind of "meh".  It's alright but I'm not in love yet.  I could see myself cancelling after a few months if it stays about the same.  I'm just way more into make up then skin care and this seems more for those into skincare.

 

Cancelled..

GoGo Girlfriend. Liked my first box, 2nd was total crap.  I don't like the way they run things.  Late delivery, deleting complaints and concerns off FB, blowing people off in emails. 

 

Considering "The Look Bag", Test Tube, and a few others but I need to keep my monthly costs under control.

Beauty Army looks like it might be something i'd be interested in since I really like skincare products...however it always takes me quite awhile to actually finish any of them.  What do you you think the demographic is for their products?  I'm only 24 so the only thing I'm really concerened about (right now) are my extremely ugly dark circles haha.  When I looked at the thread it seemed like a lot of the products were for anti-aging.  What do you guys think?

I'll be getting my first box hopefully some time this week so I'll post pics of an actual box (with size comparions) so you can get an idea of what it contains and how much.

I'm only 24 too, but i liked a lot of the products I got from beauty army. I won't lie though, I am really afraid of getting wrinkles and have been using antiaging stuff since I was like...19. Although most of the things I got weren't necessarily antiaging/wrinkle creams. The eyeshadow, lip gloss, black soap, lots of fun things!

I'm subscribed to Birchbox since a year -  I like it but have been disappointed by a couple of boxes

Just signed up for Beautyfix & used the code that someone posted before to get $30 off. I'll see if I like it but $49.99 is definitely a lot of money.

I signed up for MyGlam but I'm on the waiting list.

I'm also waiting to check out Glossybox.

 

I canceled Testtube - I like that it had a lot of products but I felt like a lot of the products where not for my age (I'm 28) & most full size were crazy expensive & I would have never bought them.

 

I looked at all the other boxes that you guys mentioned but wasn't really attracted to any other boxes.

You take a quiz but you can go back and customize it further. I was able to choose one item and then based on the value of that item you get one to three more items randomly chosen for you.  I got two more items in my bag.  You can then choose to go ahead and ship your bag or start trading with other users to try to get different items (which is highly addicting).  I've traded the other two items in my bag two or three times. I'm pretty happy with what's in my bag now. They offer jewelry, handbags, accessories, and a few little houseware knick knack things. The brands are more designer. I can't wait to get my first bag.

Currently subscribed to:

 

MyGlam (waiting for first box)

ShoeDazzle (skip most months)

LittleBlackBag (just launched)

 

Here's the link to those curious.

http://www.littleblackbag.com

 

HowItWorks_Shop.jpgI decide to take the quiz just to see and according to them I'm a little sparkle bag. You have the option to be a recurring monthly member OR do it as a "one time" only.

Style_Sparkle.jpg

Little Sparkle Bag style picks!

Choose the 1st item & we'll surprise you with the rest.

2 - 4 items for $49.95. FREE shipping on your first order!

 

It looks like a nice little treat to get some cute accessories. I'll definitely keep this one on my list.

I am also subscribed to many, New Beauty test tube qvc version got me started , and it was all down hill from there I am subscribed to:

Birchbox

My Glam

Juilp

My Platinum Box

The Look Bag

Sample Society

Beauty Army

New Beauty Test Tube

QVC version New beauty Test Tube

Cravebox

I have to say the first Platinum Box wasnt to impressive, but it was free,,, they wanted to see how many people they could interested before charging and increasing inventory, I have to say though they have the BEST customer service, thats how I know about the reason for the free inaugral box, they promise the next boxes will be much better.

Now that I see a code for $30 off Beauty Fix I am compelled to try that as well!! This is a serius addiction, but so much fun

    • A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results.    Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it.  Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapors to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapors.  Take the steam vapors for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt.  Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads.  Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer.
    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.
