Thats what I thought it was when I first contacted her but now she is saying no. I just told her the products don't suit me this month but I'll stay a fan to see what she comes up with. I didn't want to be mean & I really wanted to write her back after she politely said ok & offer some advice about what women expect of a sub company but I just left it. I got involved in another scam box & I'm not in the mood for all that craziness but I think someone should write her & maye let her know what's up because we all know where this is heading if she keeps this up & doesn't make some changes.

I'm no expert on this, but I can see what Patty was trying to say when she said what you were doing was "tortious interference with business". It's a little more complicated than just writing a negative review and posting it on her wall and I don't believe that she would ever be able to drag anybody (nor would it be worth time and money wise) to court over it. She probably should have handled things a little differently though.

Aw, you sound so sad and defeated.

 

I'd totally take those glasses off your hands, though. :)

I know I'm a weirdo, I just love giant sunglasses. I have kind of a wide face, though. :)

No your not a weirdo:) I use to love them but I lost 40 lbs and only the Taylor swift style glasses look good on me right now:) I've seen them on someone else with a wider face super cute!

You should post your video on her page so others see it. Although she will probably just delete it like she did the other reviews & threaten a lawsuit which all the gals here know is straight BS I don't know why these new companies threaten lawsuits so fast don't they realize that companies don't sue their customers?? Sounds all to similar to the box monthly that was scamming people a few months ago with the whole ill sue you stuff. SMDH thanks for the reviews ladies you just saved me $32!!!

@beautymomma, were you the one posting comments and trying to hold her accountable and you aren't even her customer..... that made me laugh.  some people have way too much time on their hands.  let the actual customers give input.

I just like a good deal which is why I sign up for most of these because you end up with a good deal for your products. I got over 100$ out of my beauty army box this month & that's a $12 box. Also my glossy box was worth over $60. That's my point is when people sign up for this type of service (myself anyway) they are looking to get the best bang for their buck. To me after seeing the boxes it's not worth it but that's just my opinion. I just don't think it's right or fair for her to threaten her customers with lawsuits because they posted bad reviews. That right there makes me wonder & leery of this sub.

My earlier comment wasn't aim to attack you personally. But when I saw that there was only a Facebook page, it did rise suspicion. I got more and more suspicious after researching this subscription. The fact that she's doing this all by herself at home was like a red flag for me so it's weird that someone would be so hyped about a new incoming subscription line. It isn't meant to be personal but just part of the consumer purchase process. I'm sorry that you ladies did not receive what your money was worth and that I'm deeply sympathetic. :(

I think we are realistic about 25$ or would have never joined in the first place! Many people fall half and half on liking this box! But when you say there will be a purse for the first 50 subscribers and then when people have paid pull it out is crap and replace it with a nail polish? How was that purse ever going to fit in that box? 25$ is awesome if my stuff wasn't expired!

Mixed feelings on this thread...I really like some of the items. Also liked that I was asked what color powder suited me and I had a choice and didnt end up with something I couldnt use.

She has been very upbeat, answered all my questions and replied right away.

Expired products...I dont know. Other than maybe the Avon (which I gave to someone who cant afford to splurge on makeup...and she was happy to get it) all my products were ok.

 

I personally belive her intentions are in the right place...Im giving this one  more time/another month or two to see how it plays out I think. wink3.gif 

 

Edited to add...My earings were a nice quality and the glasses will be a gift for my daughter.

I too decided to jump on and try it out. Very disappointed. I had the Stila mascara, avon eyeliner, the nail polish was just a clear top coat (how boring), and the sunglasses are small and have a weird colorful pattern on the side - nothing I'd ever wear. The only thing somewhat ok were the earrings, but I'd never pay more than $5 for them on their own.

Exactly how I feel!  If it's awful I will not purchase another box.

But as people who are all interested in these kinds of services, we are all POTENTIAL customers. What's wrong with wanting to hold her accountable for something possibly shady going on?

Like i said i LOVED my products and I love those earrings in the youtube video! send them my way!!

My avon was a glimmersticks and was just in this brochure. im not sure about the lip gloss stick.

I'm sure she will rectify the expired item. shes in no way shape or form out to rip anyone off. she is a very genuine person who started this company after being ripped off by the look bag (they kept charging her and never sent her item) 

she is working with wholesalers. what you must understand is a "small" company like hers, isnt going to get deals as good as the big guys. so she has to charge more at first to get started. I personally checked ebay and didnt see lots of any of these items. I do know her personally as well and stand behind her 100%. if you are unhappy PLEASE tell her and i know she will try to do right by you guys.

she paid $5 to ship each box plus over $1 in fees for every payment. which left her with less than $19 to pack those boxes. to be honest, I dont see how she even broke even. she is trying to launch a great business, there is going to be some hiccups but slamming her isnt going to help her get better deals from wholesalers. :-(

Very good point. I was interested but it seems a bit fishy...

Well we went in for the gamble.... I hate false advertisement ! I joined for the purse to be in the box! So did my friends! When you start a company you have to know things will come back to you with negative feed back! I believe the biggest start to your company is the launch! I guess she should be happy she got money for 50 boxes! If she can't handle the heat it won't work!

I'm not even sure how one would order this? A blog with a stock photo doesn't tempt me in anyway. How do you even order? Too complicated for me to figure I guess.

Her comments today on fb are scaring me a bit I'm sorry. And the invoice showing she ordered "100 x QVC quality earrings" is weird. Putting the word "quality" on an invoice for an item description seems unnecessary and suspicious to me.

    • 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.
