I got mine yesterday too. Samsies as Reija's.

 

Used one of the bath fizzers tonight. I don't know if I care for the smell (I don't hate it) but it made my skin feel relatively soft.

I thought the smell was quite strong too, honestly. I loved the black sugar ones so I chose the honey ones for the bag, but they were a bit too much for my taste. I actually filled my washing machine with hot water and plopped one in there and let it fizz down a bit and then ran a cycle to freshen my machine haha ;)

That is actually an excellent idea. If I had my own washer, I would do that.

 

I found the smell died down after awhile and it wasn't that long lasting on my skin. But my cat wanted to get in the tub with me...but I was scared to let her get in with me because of it.

I never thought to do that with the washer. What a great idea! :) I'm looking forward to trying this in the bath though. Maybe my daughter will try it instead of me because she loves taking a bath with fizzy bath bombs.

Am parting ways with beauteque as fed up with the extremely poor international shipping and having to chase every single order. When I ask for the tracking number they won't give it and I've to threaten chargeback before they seem to do anything. Enough is enough - I'm out.

Still waiting for Beauteque to get their stuff straight with international. I too keep asking for the tracking number for my March BB Bag and all they give me is 'It's on the way'. That's it. No other response not even a tracking number. I just received my April bag today thinking it was going to be the March Bag :( 

 

Also I signed up when they had a promo for the 3,6, annual ? free gift. I signed up for the 3 month subscription with a free gift in every bag but only received it in the February one. I don't know if there is one in the March bag but I know for sure there isn't one in the April bag.

I honestly do not know why they can't provide the tracking number when asked. Its not a trade secret or something!! They just say they'll talk to their shipper and find out what's happening and sorry. No, I want to be able to see when it was shipped and where it is. By not providing this info I will assume it hasn't actually been shipped or it was shipped much later than you claimed in a previous email so have lied to me.

 

@@Impulsivelycute - threaten to do a cashback if they don't deliver within say 14 days and say you're making "time of the essence" and failure to do so is a breach of contract. Seems to get them moving whenever I mention it so may be worth a shot...good luck!

Does anyone know WHY they're not providing tracking numbers, especially to International customers?

I'm just wondering if someone has asked them or if they've responded as to why. I feel like when you're waiting for an international order having a tracking number eases some of the stress of wondering where it is. I bet they'd receive less complaints and messages wondering where things are if they just provided tracking.

@@MissJexie I've asked repeatedly for the tracking number and one time they claimed they hadn't received it from the courier company but would "find out what was happening". They consistently ignore requests for it and I noted the tony moly bag (which arrived today) had Royal Mail 48 on it (which in the uk is 48 hour delivery). There was NO other sticker on it so and had their address etc so make of that as you will...if it HAS been shipped 48 hours ago then they lied about shipping it a few weeks back and THAT might be the reason they won't provide tracking numbers as would prove they hadnt sent them out when they claim they do...purely speculation but without any other reason, its the one that's the most logical.

 

I'm also not in love at all with the tony moly bag. The hair straightener stuff stinks and is currently in the bin. Even the rest of the bag is meh at best. I loved your honey bag as that at least had good products but this is just thrown together..thought I'd seen the last of that from memebox but looks like beauteque may have hired their curator lol!

 

I've ordered some of mask genie's animal masks and will see what the turnaround for international shipping for that is like. If its good (and I don't get hammered for VAT) then I'll maybe order more from her. I won't however be back to beauteque. They've had their chance and continue to severely disappoint.

That's great Lorna - glad you can still get your K beauty fix without the streaming eyes and nose (which would kinda spoil the look lol!)

 

I honestly do not know what the issue is with the international shipping and why its so pitifully slow. I like the bags (well most of them - dislike the Tony Moly one) and like trying different thins but the shipping is just so bad I can get stuff from S Korea quicker and cheaper so will be buying from there from now on I think.

I can't see me

Renewing subscription due to the shipping taking so long . It arrives way too late to blog post

Or review and also the fact we get shipping at the start and do the month yet wait far too long then find that the actual parcel has a UK 48 hr postage stamp and no actual postal date it was posted . Now I don't see how it has a UK postal sticker on unless it is bulk shipped then repackaged on UK soil by someone . Something is not ringing right here . Yet the mask bag ships and arrives in 4 days .

I will still get the limited bags but it seems that the shipping has been hiked up lately

Lorna - that was what was confusing me (though according to my OH, the 48 could be the delivery depot rather than the postal service but he wasn't 100% sure - he worked for a courier company after Uni but that was a LONG time ago!). If it IS the postal service then it doesn't make much sense right enough. Either way, I've had enough of their excuses as well so will get my products elsewhere from now on (not that I actually need anything for the next 5 years or so lol!)

If it makes you ladies feel any better (which I'm sure it doesn't...lol) I'm not really impressed with them either and I live in the states. I enjoyed the honey bag I purchased, but it is highly unlikely I will ever buy anything else from them again. I feel like they have the absolute worst communication ever. Not everyone follows social media, so if there are delays, you need to find a better way to reach out to your customers. Or you know, they could even bother to let you know that your packages have shipped.

I love Etude lips stuff and I am all into the lip craze so I don't mind it. Hopefully receiving colors that I love and  just one hidden gem will make the bag for me. :)
 
Just thought I should post this since its not up;

Congratulations to the winners of the blogger conp. I'm sure all the bags curated will be fabulous. If it were any other company I'd probably buy at least one of them but just don't trust Beauteque to deliver. Despite ordering the day some of these bags come out, they seem to take FOREVER to arrive and I've to continually contact the company for information as they won't provide the tracking number even after repeatedly asking for it. Why they won't provide this is anyone's guess but I simply don't trust them now. So, good luck with the bags and hope they are a great success.

Got my May bag today I like it the peach face mist is refreshing . The freebie this month was another sleep cover from a few months ago so I now have a blue and a pink one . Shipping was way faster this month . The lip balm I got in green was nice lacking in scent but is nice and moisturising

    • Now I'm happy because I bought an expensive set of cosmetics and a large organizer. I work as a makeup artist and have long dreamed of changing my professional tools and cosmetics. Thanks to payday loan company North Carolina, my dream came true. I think a loan is a good way to fulfill your dreams.
    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!

We usually have to surf other sites to find such important information. Nevertheless, planets and houses are usually mentioned and thanks God, they are easy for understanding
