Just to give an idea of shipping, I went back through this thread to see how long my beautynetkorea order took: I ordered the evening of May 24, and it arrived June 13. The shipping estimate was 15-35 days, so 20 days is pretty good. They did send an email confirming shipment the day after I ordered, so that part was quick.

 

I tried out the Pig Nose masks on Saturday, and I didn't see any miracles...but I do like the three-mask system since it makes me feel less like I'm just using glorified duct tape on my nose :). Love the Tonymoly Magic lip tint (green apple)--it's a fairly cool-toned, vivid pink with decent wear time and a really natural finish--not quite a stain, but closer to the lips than a gloss.

I hope it's priced well.

I have heard through the grapevine that it's going to be $22 with shipping included :)

I'm more interested in what is going to be included/how often the subscription will be (monthly/quarterly etc) Maybe they'll do boxes like Memebox that you just buy when you want? I'm just excited to see what they have in store!

SO WEIRD. I tried a Holika Holika foot peeling bootie mask ($12.99 at Pretty & Cute, right down the road from me) on the 7th. The directions said that my feet should start peeling within a couple of days, and then it would probably continue for a week. Okay, fine. A little over a week went by, and nothing happened. I shrugged and wrote it off as a lesson: These things don't do anything for me. Last night, my feet started peeling a tiny bit on my big toes, but it wasn't horribly unusual for me, especially given our recent weather (SO MUCH RAIN). Today -- more than ten days after I did the treatment -- the tops of my feet are finally shedding like a snake! Those are parts of my feet that don't peel, so this has to be due to the treatment. New lesson learned: It takes a lot longer to work for me than the instructions indicate, but it *does* work after all.

I would like to try the peeling booties, sometime. That looks intriguing. My feet need that so bad! I just got my order for cocoon face scrubs from eBay. These were shipped from Thailand I bought 50 white and 50 golden cocoons. I figured I would try both kinds. I tried the golden ones tonight, I thought it was great. It did a wonderful job exfoliating my skin, I think the golden one was not very abrasive. I really liked it, thou it was odd using it, I had to cut slits on the side of one, to get it fit my finger. It clearly did it's job my skin, it was much smoother after using it. I will try the white cocoons soon as well. I have been taking it easy this week. No makeup or anything. Just trying to keep it simple. I've been a home body, trying to get rid of this awful head cold I got while on vacation last week for spring break. I have had equilibrium issues trying to deal with. On a plus note I'll be taking a trip to Birmingham this Friday for my daughters All state choir performance. And I'm going to stop by target and check out the Laniege setup and try and come home with a new item from that line. Maybe the sleeping mask. If I am lucky. It is sad they didn't offer the line in my town. Only two cities in Alabama, Birmingham & Tuscaloosa. Birmingham is the closest to me.

can you please link which ebay seller you bought from?

I wasn't too thrilled with the contents, I think Memebox offers better value and better products.

I pre-ordered. The only thing I probably won't use is the loose shadow. Everything else I'm totally down for! And yea, I think the 3 month option is July-Sept.

    • 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.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
