Lawd, why y'all didn't tell Granny about all the extra sparklies in the box?? So festive. 

 

I really really liked the box. I"m glad I peeked at the spoilers, because I might have been bummed otherwise, but it is just all so adorable.

 

The brow kit will be too dark for my redheaded self, but I'm used to that. No sub beauty boxes ever really fits a Ginger. I will try mine as shadow, but I suspect it's too warm for my undertones. Sure is a nice kit, though, very elegant!

It sounds like the boxes are identical this time: I loved the brow kit.  I feel the same way as everyone else re: expectations but I still like "unwrapping" the contents.  I'll keep it for a while longer for this very reason but eventually will cancel since I use very little from the box.

I'm with you all on it, I have no idea what to think of French Box right now..

 

I don't think the branded items are necessary. It feels like they cannot find actual French brands to include in their box so they made filler items. The items are cute but they're cheap, and including a dollar store head band didn't help.

 

The snacks are gross. Legit nasty tasting. If this is what French cookies taste like…well I feel very sad for their country. The cookie is hard as a rock and those red things.. I don't even know what they are but I spit them out.  They don't taste fresh like the card says!

 

The brow kit is nice and so is the lotion but I consider that only two real items from the box.. 

I don't know… On one hand the packaging and look of the box is amazing. And even when I don't like the items.. I kind of don't mind it. Hmm

fail.

Gotta pipe in. As someone who goes to france every year (hubs is french) french box is more french tourist, than french. Ouiplease, on the other hand, is very french. I could easily see any of their items being sold in cute little parisian boutiques. The french box, minus some of the big name cosmetics (but that doesnt count) seems filled with things that would be in tourist shops.

I like Frenchbox. I got every box since they launched and every time I open it I am supriced. I like that. I really like high end brands they are sending and even sweets! I will for sure stay subscribed and I even thinking of getting annual. $24 is a bit steep, $19 is much better...

The brow box is a perfect color for me, so I got lucky there. The sweets were good except for those red things. The lotion will get used. The rest was just fillers. If next month doesn't absolutely wow me, I'll cancel.

I was going to cancel, but due to issues with their site, looks like I'll be getting January's box. Hopefully it's better than December-- the only thing I'm consistently using is the body lotion. I guess I'm hoping for a more fun makeup product, and maybe something to do with the new year.

I love supporting this company and I want to stay subscribed in hopes of a box that will completely wow me and December wasn't terrible but I want January to rock my socks off. This is the longest subscription service I've ever had lmao, I tried Ipsy and Birchbox for 2 months each, but I've been subbed to this since the first one, and I so badly want them to be great bc French. 

 

I'm usually happy with most of the boxes, plus the box itself is beautiful. 

I don't know how much longer I'm going to hope for a sock-rocking box.

The brow kit was a perfect match for me too (well, the brown color is) and I've been using the Lanvin lotion as a hand lotion and keeping it in my bag. I love the scent and the formula isn't greasy. For $24 Im happy with a full size luxury lotion and a brow kit that I'll use daily, especially since brow items are rare in sub boxes and this happens to be a perfect match for me. I'm trying to pare back my subs but every month seems to have one item that I really enjoy. I still use the spice mix from a few months back (it's delicious on baked salmon, btw) and used all of the coffee from another month.

Has anyone gotten any type of shipping notice for January yet? They are a bit late on the delivery. It's about this time that they charge for the next month. I rather not be charged for the next month when I haven't received this month yet.

I received an email last week indicating that an item was taking a little longer to arrive from France and that they anticipated shipping this week.

Yes, I got the same mail. They waiting for one item from France, that is why they ship a bit later this month. I like that they care enough to inform about delays. Not every sub do that.

I wonder what the late product is. They must have felt really frustrated not getting it in on time, but at least they kept us updated, and we'll get it eventually.

I recently cancelled this box but I'm still receiving this month…I wonder what the tardy product is too, sounds like it's stuck in customs somewhere.

Oh, wow, the item they been waiting for is still not here. So we will get box now and the missing item later. Feel sorry for them, it is extra shipping and they always send with the expensive 2 days one... I guess no profit this month... :-(

When that sort of thing happens to my subs, I email them and let them know they can just wait and send mine in the following box. I hate to see a great new sub like this get hammered with extra costs.

I could easily wait for January box longer. I am getting Mizzfit soon, LLB in two days, Fabfitfun and second January Popsugar are on the way, so many boxes in short period of time.

 

That's a good idea, in my case they could do it too :) Maybe I should get annual sub with them...

   That's a great idea - I'm in no hurry for the extra item so maybe I'll drop them a note.
