Thank you ladies for reassuring me.  I was starting to get nervous.

I was wondering if they would start spoilers for Feb... Before they had even finished sending out Jan. Guess they need all the time they can to try to wrangle all the unsubs back in.

I think at this point they could put a winning lottery ticket in the February box and I still would not subscribe.  I finally got a shipping notification on my Jan box and have already cancelled.

It's insane to me. I've been complaining about not hearing anything, but after getting my tracking yesterday and seeing people whose delivery timeframe has come and gone STILL not have tracking is confusing. It is not first come, first served, as gb told a few people! I didn't order until Jan 15th and my delivery timeframe was Jan 25-Feb 5th. For all intents and purposes, others should have gotten tracking that haven't. I expected to be last.

I cannot tell what that is and I didn't get this email!! lol

 

is that nailpolish in a baby pink?  Totally swapping.  I am stuck with Feb's box because I am scared to cancel until my Jan box is shipped - I am not happy now.

It wasn't on an email. It just a picture from their page.

I just received an email saying my gift box had shipped. I know the tracking number isn't always accurate so not too worried about that. And it was super nice of them but they put 200 extra dot in my account after I had inquired if my box had actually been purchased.

My box still hasn't shipped! I cancelled for Feb and emailed about getting a refund for Jan. I don't want the stupid box anymore. They said since I already paid that I am stuck with it though. Does anyone know how long I have to wait to dispute the charge with my credit card? I paid on Jan 7th and my approx delivery date range is until Feb 1st. Obviously I won't be getting it by tomorrow unless they personally drive it to my house. I know it might seem extreme to dispute when I know I'll probably get the box eventually, but I really don't want to support a company that does business like this!

It's still up on the main page as far as I see. Some people seem to not be seeing it depending on what browser they use.

thanks!  I was on firefox and didn't see it - switched to chrome and BAM...there it is!!

 

I hope there will be other color choices, but based on the pink box and pink blankie, I am feeling this is the color.

Bwahaha! I love your response to getting the shipping notice! I think sums up this month's Glossy problems quite nicely.

I'm about to do the same thing!

(a pink nail polish spoiler isn't enough to draw me in for another month of shenanigans!)

Yep. Trading that polish. It's probably "great" and all, I'm just so stocked up on polishes that  I'm drowning in them.

I'm stuck with the GlossyBox nightmare for another month because of the living social deal. Sigh. I won't be resubbing, especially after seeing how customer service has been handling the January box situation. I really enjoyed the items in January, but I can't stand the sneaky way GB went about covering up the situation.

Wow, can't believe I actually got my shipping notice email + tracking number. I was starting to think that I wouldn't have my box shipped until next week.

Yeah, it was just the home page pic they have up. Lauren B Beauty in City of Angels. Looks like a start up business, maybe? I love nail polish and pink, so I'll stick around another month IF there are no more issues, and IF the other products are good. Is this an every month thing with glossybox?? Please tell me it isn't always this bad!

It was not how people reacted that caused this mess.  It was how everyone in authority around them failed to act!

 

But I'm still petty enough that I want my Glossybox nooooow!  :icon_wink


Thanks for sharing. As a born and breed Minnesotan, I've been so puzzled by the whole situation since 2 inches of snow here is just another day. But now it makes sense.

I finally got my January shipping email. Thank heavens! I was worried there for a while since I signed up on January 1st! I got on the website to see if my surveys had updated & I only have 4 listed: the beauty blender, blush, Vichey, & hair product. So does that mean I'm not getting the body wash then? I hope they either send it later or replace it with another product. I'll be bummed if I only get 4 products when others got 5. Has that happened before?

We should be getting 5 items.  I think that the perfume is the 5th item for some people (might be for us) and they just haven't gotten to putting it up yet.  I don't think they had planned on giving out perfume this month.

 

I will be emailing them when I get my box to ask about the 5th item and how to do the survey.  They certainly cannot just give out 4 items that are the same as other people who got them (plus the body wash)

 

that would be so dishonest and unfair.

Seeing "start up business", "nail polish" and "Glossybox"  made me laugh so hard.  I can't help but think of Bondi.

This is my 6th box and it's the first time I've seen this sort of insane lack of communication, backpedaling, and inconsistency that there's been this month. CS is usually wonderful. That's been my experience anyway. I don't know what their deal is this month but for me, it's definitely not always like this.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
