So this is what I an assuming

Taste- a food item. Probably a bar of some sort

Smell - the Oscar de la Renta perfume

Hear - a music download

See - a Stila makeup product. Probably a lip gloss since they just did liners

Feel - a Boscia lotion or cream for the face or body

Thoughts?

Oh, drat, not another download! Not that I'm complaining or hate the music, but I use an iPad. Unless it's from iTunes I can't get the downloads to work--had this same problem with the Green River Ordinance promo, and I like them!

I use iPad as well and iPod (shuffle). You can download it to your PC then import it into your iTunes library and sync it to your iPad. It's what I have to do with all my non iTunes downloads.

I as well was highly satisfied with GG box...then again I haven't been upset about one box so far...

 

Yes I haven't used some of the products but mainly due to saving for specific occasions.

Wow, I love the look of the Glamour/Birchbox box! Does anyone else get excited about packaging lol?

 

I also enjoyed my Teen Vogue Bb so I have high hopes for the Glamour one. I've never received a music download (have only been subbed since March), but I can see where it could be kind of a let down because of varied musical taste. Haven't even received June's box yet and I'm already looking forward to July! :)

I'm always excited about packaging!! Also, I love Glamour magazine -- I've subscribed on and off since I was about 14 or 15! (Wow, that's about two decades, now you all know how old I am haha)

I like the idea of partnering with beauty magazines. They know what's trendy, but they also know what women are actually coveting.

I'm so glad! That opt-in/opt-out turned out to be a pretty big fail. I'm glad they learned from that.

It's also possible that the taste product could be a flavored lipgloss or something like that, or a food-related beauty product, like a coconut oil hair treatment, depending on how they interpret it. It would be pretty "brave" of them to give granola and a myspace band's downloads out again. Or TEA!!!

 

I have gotten decent music downloads before...itunes used to do free mixes sometimes, and I got a couple of DJ-mixed party downloads from refinery 29. I prefer things like that, rather than a single band where it's more likely that you won't like them.

Another thing about the music downloads... sometimes starbucks puts out a "summer mix" where you get of the little cards, but the code gives you access to like 7 summer songs. That would be a good way to make a lot of people happy, even though this is a beauty subscription service... haha

good point. I would be happier with a mix of songs for a theme than a single artist. Here's hoping!

With so many food allergy problems and different tastes I find food an odd lifestyle product to include in a beauty box. Plus, would they really be including 2 "lifestyle" items (food and download)? I'm pretty convinced the "hear" would be a music download. It's cheap (most likely free) and easy and can be distributed to everyone.

If I remember correctly, the music download they included previously was just an extra, in addition to the regular amount of samples and the lifestyle extra, and not the lifestyle extra itself.  They used to include a food type almost every month - Lara bars, Choco pods (yum!) and more recently, they have been including tea as the lifestyle extras.

Excited because I love Glamour, but not going to get too excited as I was burned by the opt in/out TV BB.  My GG BB was meh.  It seems to be when the box is limited or exclusive they are really good and when everyone gets them they are ok.  Just my opinion.

 

But good marketing to get us all talking when June boxes aren't even out!

I wish Taste was chocolate but that's probably not a good idea since it's pretty much summer right now. I'd prefer some kind of gummy fruity candy. 

 

I heard that Glymm stopped giving out jelly beans with their boxes and people were pretty upset over it.

So are the boxes going to be different? I'm assuming there will have to be some variation as they can't possibly get enough of the same samples to cover every single subscriber. Just wondering if it's worth keeping my second box. I was going to cancel it after June since I decided to keep GB.

If it's like the Teen Vogue or Gossip Girl boxes there were be over a dozen box variations with products that cross over. If June's contents - over 40 items - is any indication of July's then the box contents shouldn't overlap too much. Is it worth keeping a 2nd subscription? Not if your profiles are so similar. My younger two daughters have almost identical profiles and have been getting the SAME box each month. I just switched one of their profiles a few weeks ago so we'll see if she keeps getting the same box as her youngest sister.

             I'm with you on that one... as a subscriber who did NOT receive any DIOR product in her GG box....

I'm seriously considering getting another sub and creating a totally different profile...such a good idea!! I am also happy to hear about another fun collab!! It keeps things interesting! I guess we will see how July's box will compare to this month's jet setting theme!!

Well I got different boxes last month, and I'm assuming I'll probably get different ones this month as well. Just because one shipped yesterday and the other one has no information on it yet. Usually when it's the same box, it seems like people get shipping notices at the same time. Guess I have a little less than a month to think on it and decide...

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
