My May bag got here yesterday. After trying the mist (I got the lime scent) I really like it. It's refreshing. It's not a strong scent, just smells refreshing. I'll be using this for sure. (If I just remember to get it out in the huge sea of products I have :D ) I got the lip balm in green as well and it's super moisturizing. I'm looking forward to using the rose essence. I like rose scents as long as they are not too strong. I tried the essence on the back of the hand and the scent is great. Not too over powering, just a nice rose scent. I don't use curlers but I'll give this one a try. I've never been a fan of curlers and have tried too many to count. They are just not a tool for me. EL mascara gives me the results without having to use a curler. Curlers are too much work for me. :D

One more spoiler for next month's bag (from FB)

Loving this! Never tried anything from that brand other than their delicious-tasting lip tint (which fell short other than its taste). Not supposed to eat your makeup but oh well.. :P

Did anyone who has canceled their subscription randomly get charged today? I got an email from Beauteque today saying that my subscription was in danger of expiring because my card info is no longer up to date, but I canceled my subscription a couple of months ago.

Beauteque seem to have had a major security breach or something as they attempted to take vast sums of money from some people's accts (to the tune of $5000!!).

 

If anyone has purchased or has a subscription, I'd immediately check your acct and see if there has been any attempt to remove money. [i was notified by another member about this and is quite rightly fuming as she's had to cancel the card].

 

Hopefully its a one off and no one else has had the same thing happen but better to do a quick check online / by phone with your bank / CC just in case.

 

[and no, I'm not trying to scaremonger, the person involved may post about it but with it being raised about emails sent I thought it worth mentioning in case there are others affected as would hate people to be charged twice or extra money and not notice - especially if its not a big amount like this one was).

 

Edit - on mobile so spelling mistake with tiny screen!

I was checking emails on way from home 6 missed voicemails and texts . Email from Beauteque 2.56 calls from fraud squad 2.59 . Finally finish sorting the crapola out wat after 6 pm after work . So not even remotely happy $5000 was attempted to be taken . Then when it was declined $250 was tried again . I'm now cardless for the week . No answer from Beauteque as of yet either . I cancelled my account . Was going to buy the odd head to toe . Right now the bank say the company are classed high risk and red flagged due to such huge amounts being demanded.

Will not be going near again . If you cancel your subscriptions why the hell are they still attempting to take money from your account.

OMG.  Thanks for alerting us here.   I checked my bank account and it is just the one charge for my monthly bag - but this does not sound good for beauteque.

 

then again, our own government servers have been hacked by the Chinese government, so I am not shocked about these things anymore

 

I do think, as I get these types of emails from other sites where I have my CC on file, that the notification about the card expiring doesn't necessary mean that they are charging you.

 

I do wish there was a way to remove the CC completely from some of these places, but I've seen it before with other companies.

hi lorna, I was referring to theori3's post when I wrote that, as I didn't know you had cancelled your subs when this happened to you.

 

I don't blame you for not wanting to deal with beauteque on this matter - this is just horrible...

Didn't mean to post then run, my dog had an op today so he's currently crying (he's to wear a cone all week) so head pounding from the Shiba scream. Just hope Beauteque notify everyone affected and make a public apology..though I doubt it given the lies they've told about shipping in the past. Barge and pole spring to mind.

Wait, so is the email a phishing scam? With a link that takes you somewhere else to steal your money? Or was there a breach somewhere at Beauteque??

 

I've used my credit card there though I'm not subscribed (didn't get an email either) but I'm going to run check my accounts just in case. 

 

Not good!!  I'm so sorry you have to deal with this crap! I had my information taken when a company was hacked and they had to give everyone credit card protection and access to credit reports for five years. So I've got that. No notification yet but I'm not chancing it. I'll be watching closely.

I know that some folks are mad at beauteque and rightly so, but I do hope that for those who are still sub'd can still discuss the monthly bags.
 
I received my June bag and it is a pretty good.  They are slowly stepping up here.

And I am pleased to see that July's bag will include TheYeon (everyone knows I love the Yeon)

I just opened my bag and was really surprised by all the items. I'm really happy with this month's bag. I will use these items for sure. I can't wait to try the strawberry mask and the peeling gel. I'll use everything in the bag with the exception of the nail polish which I'll give to my daughter. This is a winner for me.

@Reija  I feel like I opened up a fruit basket!!  haha.  I was hoping for the more darker shade, but I got a pale lavender glitter.   It isn't bad - I use glitters as topcoats, so I think this would look really good over a black nailpolish.  In fact, I might just have to do that tomorrow!!

So sorry to hear about the charges.  I hope this works out for everyone!

 

On a side note, I really really love the June bag and their Mask subscription.   It's my second month with them and I am happy with all the wonderful products I'll get to try.  I just discovered the Peach Hand Cream and I'm happy to get another this month.  :wub:

I forwarded the email I got to their customer service department (it came from the subscriptions email address), and got an automated reply about them canceling my account. It makes me pretty angry that they apparently didn't even read my email or didn't want to actually address the issue. I sent another email asking why they attempted a charge in the first place, we'll see what happens. I had to cancel the card that was on file earlier this month because the info was stolen, which is why the charge couldn't go through. I wonder if their system does a "test" charge every month to see if a card is still active, and for some reason is doing it for both canceled and active subscriptions--if so, that seems like something they need to stop.

@theori3  I agree.  I remember one time with another subscription company, I had TO FIGHT to get them to remove my CC information off their system.  There has to be a way to delete it.

I know I ended up putting a completely fake number or expiry date (don't remember which) for a certain sub box because they have no way to delete cc info. After reading stories about people being charged months after cancelling, I felt a little uncomfortable with them having my cc number still. And this is a very well known sub that's been around awhile.

    • 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.
