I always feel weird when a box launches on FB only. Not having a "real" site makes me apprehensive. I tend to wait and see what actually happens. Plus it's $25 and not $10 so its a bigger gamble.

Yes Dalylah I completely understand that! I thought it looked pretty nice I heard about it thru another youtuber. I myself know how hard it can be start off a small company something about this one just screamed give it a try! Its the first Facebook one I will be doing. So I am going in for the gamble! I will def keep you guys updated if anyone is interested :) I guess payments will be thru PayPal I also like that better then sending money or check, I will ask her if she plans on launching a site but from what I've read it does sound so!

After looking at the facebook page, it really looks like someone trying to start it up from home. While she may have good intentions, I'll stay away. I'm not sure one person alone can successfully run this type of service.

I just dont have patience to wait if she is behind. Also i tried to sign up but cant message and if there is no otger way to contact so yes red flag! Sorry for my up and down on this box! But u helped me realize to see some not so good signs:) thank u

This company sounds familiar. I'm not 100% sure but I think they/she contacted me about their company. Anyone have any more information other than what's currently posted?

It is interesting and even though there are scam companies operating, this is how businesses typically start. A person or group has to have some ingenuity, dedication and hard work to make it. I'm also tempted to do a test drive. At the worst, I'm out $25.. or deliriously happy I tried it. Will have to check around and look into it.

Alright she has worked out the email issue with me so I finally contacted her thru and put myself on the list! I don't know why but I can't leave a private message to her from the page. I didn't like that! But I see she has said a site will be up and running soon! So that's good to hear! I have joined the list! Keep you guys updated!

I'm definitely thinking of trying it out as well. I put myself on the list and I agree that it seems a little odd, but I also agree that is how a person starts a business. I think a one time of $25 through paypal is worth checking out.

 

It's like not like I'm handing her my info on a gold platter, paypal does offer some protection.

That's what I was thinking too.. Way too skeptical about this box. Upload pictures when you ladies get your box though!

I believe that you subscribe by sending her an email.  Her email address is in one of the comments on the Facebook page.  She gave out her email because people were having a hard time sending her a message through Facebook at the time.  This is as of about two days ago.  Not sure if there is a different way to subscribe now.

Well after 186 posts on diffrent box subs that I have I cant believe when I share something new I get questioned! I can see if i had 5 posts or so but thats not the case. I am a box subscriber like everyone else and just wanted to share the box i was subbing to. I am no longer going to sit here and defend myself. It is so silly!

No worries. I know the owner of Red Carpet Box via Facebook so I'm aware you have no association with them. :)

    • Hi girls, I have such an issue with fake tan settling into my pores and looking dotty. I would really appreciate if some of you girls could take my survey (its v short). Curious if it's just me with this issue. TIA https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5WY7S67 
    • Acne is a very common skin disorder now a days. Though its not a serious threat its very irritating and leads to stress. Sometimes when not treated well it leads to scars and infection ..... http://skincarey.com/healthy-skin/natural-home-remedies-for-acne-skin-care/
    • Last February, I was looking forward to going to a special ABBA tribute concert. I grew up with ABBA as a teen - I liked to dream that I was Agnetha. I had all of the albums. On the morning of the show, we woke up to find a pipe in the kitchen had broken overnight, and it was absolutely miserable. We are just now getting over the trauma. I was so unhappy and disappointed - of course I missed the show. But the ABBA group returned to my area yesterday (they are from Sweden), and I got to go! The show was magnificent! "Agnetha" was like an angel in the lights with a long gold shimmering cape. She had all of the choreography and mannerisms down pat. "Anni-Frid" had the bubbly personality and sang a song in Swedish. "Benny" played the piano brilliantly, and "Björn" played a great guitar solo.  The lesson from the universe is, that if I can't have things I want due to some adversity - or my No Buy - they will come to me if I am patient. After all, one of my favorite ABBA songs is I've Been Waiting for You. 
    • I've finished my Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal mini cream, and I have moved on to a mini glass bottle of The Ghost Oil from Poetic Blend (October 2017 Petit Vour box). One of the great things about the No Buy/Project Use It Up is that it has freed me from my compulsive decluttering. Compulsive decluttering is a real thing that is recognized as a mental health issue. It is a compulsive need to get rid of things and throw things away, in an excessive manner. This is an attempt to control anxiety and other emotions. So many beautiful cosmetics ended up in my garbage pail, not old, well used things, but pretty things I loved and wanted. The compulsive decluttering arose from two primary emotional states, as far as I can tell. The first was unhappiness with my face and hair and appearance. I would try a product once or twice, then look in the mirror and feel disappointed. I felt I did not look any better. So I would throw away the pretty new items and go and look for something else. Now, I never look in the mirror and pick on myself. Instead, I look at my little jars and bottles and see how close they are to being used up. That is the goal now. It has taken the pressure off of using them and looking for a certain result on my face. Once an item is fully used, I know I have done the best I could with my looks, and that is all I can do. And I enjoy the pretty items. If I do see my face and think it looks bad, I just kindly tell myself I am tired from stress or work. In the past, I never gave the pretty lotions and makeup a chance. It takes time for lotions to work, and experimentation to learn to apply a particular makeup product to one's specific facial structure.  The second emotion that drove my compulsive decluttering was anxiety about money, about spending, frustration with wanting more than I could afford. I wanted to control all that, and I felt that by getting rid of the things I could make the anxiety and want go away. I would feel better for a bit after throwing things out, but it never solved my problems. I would go out and buy more the next day. Instead, now I use up all my things up instead of buying new, and I have the anxiety, guilt, and compulsive shopping under control. I threw away so many pretty things, and I regret it so much. I wasted things and money, and hurt myself really badly. I could have enjoyed so much more, saved so much money, been so much happier. The last time I decluttered was in 2017, before I began this No Buy, and it means so much to me.  **I should clarify that the cosmetics thrown away were new, expensive, and nice. I'm not talking about throwing away old, expired, broken things, or things I was allergic to. And it was not just a matter of a few things; it was just about all my things, for years and years, decades. I would buy nice things, use them one or twice, throw them away, and buy more. I hurt myself so much. I am so glad this is gone now.
