$1000 ShopBop gift cards in our boxes!

 

 

Sounds good to me! (On both counts smiletongue.gif   (<----- OMG this smiley!) )  

 

Fingers crossed, I'm sure we will end up with great boxes this month!!!

If I get another useless hair care product I'm  canceling. I got one last month and I was so dissapointed, I don't do anything with my hair. I know its not Glossybox's fault, but I want makeup, not hair care products.

Ah, well even though I spent 2 months being seriously annoyed with GB and their crappy (and occasionally non-existent) CS, I still can't seem to leave them alone...lol  I gifted myself a 2nd box last month and once I saw someone say that we could gift a box this month as well, I started considering it.  Then I saw the spoilers and I caved, so I'm hoping to get a better variety this month than I did last month.  Why do I do this to myself?  I have no will-power!   eusa_wall.gif  HA!

It's a mark of how much their CS has infuriated me that I'm *not* getting a second box.  I'm planning on canceling it after I get it largely because of that.  Plus the products that I've received have hugely missed the mark for me.  I was particularly annoyed by the mark. lipstick.  It's an *Avon* brand.  This is supposed to be a luxury box  Plus the color?  Hate hate *hate* soft pinks.  I go for bold berry or hot pink/fuchsia lips.  I am usually baffled when I try to figure out why they have sent what they have sent to me.  At least they haven't sent me a product for curly hair -- yet.  It seems like it's just a matter of time before they do.  But if they send out decent products *and* turn the CS around this month, I might not cancel.  Maybe.  With all of the promotional work surrounding this particular box, though, I have a bad feeling that they won't be able to deal with the influx of customers, and the CS will be even worse than it already is, so I'm still planning on cutting the cord once I get January's box in my hands since I won't be able to do a credit card chargeback due to the fact that I redeemed points for this one.  I can't believe how much I'm looking forward to cutting my losses here.

None of the subs are all makeup. Ipsy is probably the closest but even they don't have ALL makeup.

Starbox by www.starlooks.com is all colored makeup products. $15.00 a month for gorgeous, high quality makeup items. December's item was a $99 eye shadow palette.

Most months, the boxes contain 4-6 individual makeup items.

 

I think it's fabulous and a total steal of a deal. :)

Oh my gosh, is GB going to make the $15 gift box a monthly feature? I didn't know they were offering this again til I read here. Just bought another Man Repeller box, LOL.

 

In my very weak defense, I had subscribed to the Man-Repeller Lost Crates subscription box, then Lost Crate went out of business or something... so I do like her " material stuff".

The US Glossybox seems so much better.

 

I have had a few small issues w other boxes (test tube, Beauty Cache from Skincarerx, Beautyfix), but when I did contact about a  caproduct question, missing item or whatever all the other companies were great to deal with.

 

but Glossybox Canada is not responding to my emails, no phone number for Canadians, not offering to replace my 2 expired products.

-not much they can do to keep me as a customer short of a free box, and not too sure I want anything from them after hearing they buy items from 3rd parties and not authorized places?? for some items.

That is incredible. It makes them seem like those scammers that buy stuff on ebay and try to resell it as "luxury" boxes. Plus, Avon shouldn't even be categorized as a "luxury brand" and having it expire since 2005 is the last straw. I would file a complaint with my credit card if they pulled that stuff over here. I don't know what options you have in Canada but you shouldn't have to pay for boxes of drugstore items and even worse, expired drugstore items and third party unauthorized products. If I see even a hint of that happening in the US, I'll cancel immediately.

Anyone here besides JessP (don't know how to tag you!) in San DIego?  I am trying to get together an in-person bb swap, might as well include glossybox. PM me if interested!!!  

I was also charged for a second box. 2 emails and still no reply.

My reply would be this: "In that case, I will be initiating a credit card chargeback through my credit card company."

I must be a sucker for punishment because I bought another 3 month sub. I love the products but I hate the way they run the company.

Well, I'm glad I saw the spoilers so I can relax and save myself $21, since I tried almost all of the products included in the boxes this month (minus that super expensive moisturizer).

Those of you getting charged twice, are you getting charged two $21 amounts or one $15 and one $21?  If the latter, could this be the issue? ....

 

I was signed up for a 3 month sub, Jan was to be the last month of the sub. I also wanted to take advantage of the $15 gift box deal so I tried to order but it said I needed to have an active subscription to order the gift box.   Apparently once my Jan box had been processed my account was deemed "cancelled" so I am no longer a current active subscriber.  

 

I'm assuming they don't want people ordering the $15 gift boxes in place of the $21 subscription priced box, so in order to receive the $15 box you must also be getting a $21 box.  Does that sound like what is happening?

    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
