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.

For those even remotely interested, beauteque head to toe May seems to be all about lips this month....

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

    • 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.
    • Hi, lottie. How would you be able to dry brushes that fast? Mine take a day to dry
