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

    • When you have something that need to step foot out into the street, must you need to review myself to have decent and neat yet. Or maybe you need to makeup the back face, cool his hair a little. In addition to a face skin smooth screen, then hair neatly with the style chignon simple will help you look more outstanding. In these days of cold weather, your hair can be dull, rough or matted due to shampooing, so the bun hairstyle simple will help keep looks cute and more refreshed. If you are a person who love makeup, love beauty, then you should not skip this article! Here are 5 types of beautiful and simple hair that make you look great The Hairstyle On The Top This style of top bun is suitable for girls traveling by car or bus, not wearing a helmet, ensuring you are always neat, but also a little more height for you. This top bun style is a bit different, unlike the regular bun, which is the type of hair that knots, looking very different and youthful. This type of bun is also suitable for girls who have not yet washed their hair, can take advantage of the small strands of hair to make it more luxurious, hiding the scalp that begins to be greasy and itchy. Making: First, tie all your hair into a ponytail above the top of the head. You don't have to tie it too tight, you can loosen up to look natural, and you can release a few loose strands of hair around your forehead. Divide the hair into two equal parts, wrap the first strand around the rest of the hair and use a fixed clip to fix it. Take the rest of your hair, do the same thing, but wrap it in the opposite direction, and then use a peg to fix it. So the hairstyle on the top of your head is completed, it looks very dynamic right? Feminine Hairstyle This is the perfect way to put on a bun to wear a helmet, also neat enough for you to wear the turtleneck sweater and scarf without itching. It can be considered as a basic type of bun, decorated with a braided pigtail to add to the momentum, making your school and work days less boring. This is also a very romantic hairstyle, suitable for you to handle messy hair in dating. Making: Separate a small lock of hair in front of your face so that it will be braided later. The rest grabbed into a ponytail. From this ponytail, twist it into a simple twist and pin it with a toothpick. Use the hair in front of the face to form a strand of ponytail, tied temporarily with small rubber bands. Then, use your fingers to drag the braids to make the pigtail look loose and wider. Wrap it in the bun behind your head, then pin it with a toothpick and you're done. If you have a lot of loose hair, apply a little hairspray. Multi-layered Hair Drawn If you do not know how to create a chignon, you can still apply an extremely simple technique to create a special bun style, ready for parties. How to create multi-layered knots: First, comb your hair very smoothly, then take a part of the hair above the top of the head, divide it into two sections and tie the knot together. Combine some hair underneath each strand, then continue tying the knot together. Keep going until you have all your hair on the knots. Secure the tail with elastic. Afterwards, insert the ends into the hair and pin it with a toothpick to finish. If your hair is longer than the model in the photo, you can continue to tie the long strand of hair down the back of your neck like a ponytail, then twist it into a bun and pin it with a small clip. If desired, fingers can be inserted into the knots to create a thick and fluffy bun. For people with very smooth hair, spray extra hairspray or dry wax to prevent knots from falling out. Curly Hair Chignon This is a very elegant, elegant bun hairstyle, similar to the hairstyles of many famous stars attending the event, but it's actually very easy to do, you don't need sophisticated styling tools, but Just hair ties and toothpicks will suffice. Making: Take a lock of hair above the ears, twist it, and twist it to get more hair into the lock. Do the same thing on the other side of the lock, then tie the entire hair into a low ponytail behind the nape of the neck. Insert your fingers into the middle of the hair above the elastic to create a gap, then thread the entire end of the hair into this space, taking care not to let the ends pass through to reveal under the bun. If your hair is too long, you can place a portion of it on top, then clip it around with a toothpick. So your bun is done. Thanks to the double curls on the ear, your hair will look thicker, more fluffy and more sophisticated. You can drop a few strands of hair hanging down in front for a more feminine. Style Chignon This is a hairstyle suitable for the evening outings, creating a youthful look, a bit rebellious and suitable for dusty costumes. Making: If you do not have time, you can skip steps 1 to 4: These are the steps to tangle the hair on the top of the head to create a feeling of thicker hair, thereby making your face appear smaller. You can directly do it from the 5th step, which is to tie all the hair into a low ponytail, and then divide the hair into 2 parts. For the upper part, let's disassemble, then fold the lower part to cover this messy hair, forming a bulging bun. Use a rubber band to fasten, then divide the extra hair ends of the 2nd part into 2 smaller strands, use these 2 smaller strands to wrap around the elastic band and then pin with a toothpick to complete. If you want more momentum, you can use a curling iron a few curls around the face. hope you can choose for yourself a beautiful bun among the above. ------------------------------ Website: https://beautizon.co/
    • Try BB cream or CC Cream, avoid using foundations,I prefer using bb cream and cc cream as it suit my skin type
    • It is definitely the MICA! I cannot use any mineral products or anything containing Mica which sucks because all the good blushes and colors have Mica but as soon as I use it I break out.  I have no breakouts at all now that I am MICA free.  
    • I got your point. This is the same with me. They arent curls in a proper a way but due to lack of moisture they have become rough and frizzy  at the end and tend to curl. But you dont need to panic Start coconut oil again following with a masaage for 5 minutes Apply yogurt or dahi at the tips in order to retain up the smoothness and moisture at the end Dont forget to condition your hair when ever you shampoo
