GLOSSYBOX August 2014

Recommended Posts

Oh, the BaB The One Stick... gross. Actually, the Skin&Co Truffle Therapy Serum is the only item I actually want, and it's a smaller sample than it was last time! I'm waiting for it to be back on Hautelook, soo... this might be another pass for me. :/

 

I was really excited about this box, too.

I'm actually not interested in 99% of the brands and products listed. So my wallet is safe for August. Please no more BaB!

Alas, your wallet is in danger. Today was the last day to cancel and not receive an August box(!)

Wow, that is not a good list. I actually hate Be a Bombshell a lot! Every product I've gotten from them has been terrible! I am seriously at the point where I would straight up throw away any product I got from them (so sad).  :(

Ladies - this may not be the August box - this is a quote -look like it could be a limited edition...in which case you may actually have to buy it which most of us simply won't since BaB is in there!

 

 

Here is the quote:

The limited edition Cosmoprof Boutique box will be available for sale exclusively on GLOSSYBOX.com in August after the show. The limited edition box will feature seven products and will have a small run. Once sold out ~ it is gone! Exhibitors participating in this program will benefit from a consumer focused promotional campaign with lots of social media visibility before and after the show.

Do not worry! I wasn't even subscribed to begin with! Ehehehe. I think I'll only subscribe after seeing some good spoilers.

Ha ha, no, I meant that if those aren't the items for August, and there are better/different items, it will make it more difficult for me to resist subscribing again! :)

Not sure if this was already posted but I went ahead and subbed just a few minutes ago. Am hoping to still get the July box but I'm ok with August for the price. I used ebates and got $2.75 off and also used the code CIATE to get a free Ciate polish (I think it is full sized)

This was posted on Midnight Manicure bloglovin page. I take no credit for this I'm just posting because the way it's worded "limited run" may mean it is really a Limitied Edition box and not the August box. Plus, she listed the items in great detail, I think I will get one if it's not way over priced, it is almost back to school shopping time.

Just a little housekeeping heads up:  I moved this thread out of the general sub section and into the Glossybox dedicated section.  Thanks!

I read up about the box and Cosmoprof Boutique curated the products for Glossy. They are a nonprofit.  The companies that are included in the limited edition Glossybox had to make a donation to be featured in it, in addition to providing X number of free products. I'd be curious to see what portion of the sales of the box go back to Cosmoprof Boutique to be donated for charity.  

 

Glossy didn't *choose* BaB - they made a donation to be in the box.

I just received an email from Glossybox about changes to their subs. Because I like the box but have had nothing but terrible experiences with their customer service I wanted to ask here. It appears that starting now their subs auto renew. I don't want mine to. Per the instructions below it looks like you can cancel them online but If I cancel before the last box has shipped, meaning if the sub ends in October but I "cancel" today will I get the last few boxes? Anyone else get this email?

 

Here is the email.

Dear Megan,
         
Thanks for being a loyal customer and hope you are enjoying your GLOSSYBOX subscription!

In our effort to provide a great customer experience, we’ve updated our 3, 6 and 12 month subscription plans as of today so that it will automatically renew upon expiration.  This is to minimize the chance that our customers miss receiving a monthly box due to an expired subscription.

Should you decide to end your subscription and all future billing, please follow the steps below:
• Simply log in to your GLOSSYBOX account
• On the left hand side of the dashboard, click on "Recurring Profiles and Orders"
• Then click on the text describing your applicable subscription plan (ie, “6-Month Plan”)
• Underneath the “Profile Schedule”, click on the gray box that states "Cancel Subscription"
• That's it!

While we would be sad to see you go, we understand there may be a time and/or reason where you have to leave us (hopefully just temporarily). These changes should make the cancellation process easier for you.

***Kindly note that you will have until the 14th of any given month to opt out of the renewal to avoid receiving the next month’s box. Any change on the 15th and after will not take effect until the applicable subscription expires***

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 855-738-1140 or email us at [email protected]

Stay glossy,
The GLOSSYBOX Team

You should still get the remaining boxes since you prepaid for the subscription. For some reason I'm nit getting emails from them anymore, but I saw this mentioned in the July forum.

Is this the same product? I couldn't find anything that looked similar on Kryolan's site.

    • New here..!! I am beauty enthusiastic. Fashion & styling blogger!! 
    • We have rounded up not one, but five easy ways to draw that fine stroke of liner on your lid. You can use your pencil, liquid, gel or pen eyeliners and try out any of these five ways to apply eyeliner like a pro. So grab your eyeliner and take a look at five different ways to work the stunning eyeliner look in one go.     
    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! I think so!  My hair has been a disaster, an absolute mess. It just needs better care. It is long, and I don't want to cut it until I use up all my backlog of hair products. It tangles so badly. I can't comb through the tangles, and they just build up into matted sections. It is just awful. Hair products don't help. My hair got really badly tangled and matted this week. My scalp was also irritated from using too much harsh shampoo. I decided to wait an extra day before washing it again, to let the natural oils soothe my dry and itchy scalp. Ironically, the natural oils also allowed me to detangle my hair, even where conditioners won't do it. It still took an hour and 40 minutes to get the tangles out, I kid you not, but at least I was able to do it. It's ironic that the solution to my problem wasn't buying a product, but just leaving my hair alone and letting my body heal itself.  Also I just had a little haul, but don't worry - it's within my No Buy rules. Time to replace my deodorant. I got an Avon Rare Pearls roll on. Three years ago, I got a stack of Rare Pearls sample cards from the Avon lady, and I thought if I got the deo to match, it would finally motivate me to use them up. While I was looking through the Avon site, I saw that Avon has some really pretty new dental care products. I got myself a really pretty pink toothbrush that has special bristles and Himalayan pink salt! I'm excited, because my teeth are bad and need more care, and this will be nice for me. It's been a while since I got a new toothbrush. The Avon lady had a code to get belif samples too - is belif part of Avon now? No - I jut checked - Avon was bought by the company that makes belif, apparently, and also makes History of Whoo! History of Whoo is one of my dream brands, and I've always wanted to try it. (It's an expensive, beautifully packaged Korean line of products that look like they are made for a Korean princess or empress.) Well that was a good guilt free haul! Very interesting and productive No Buy night.
