Yep, I'm on the East Coast, and my first box is scheduled for delivery tomorrow! Super excited, and I'm really liking the looks of the boxes I've seen so far, even if the value is a little lower than expected.

My box just arrived and I am really upset again. I thought my horrible box last time was a fluke.    This is the contents of my box.

 

Huile beauty oil

 2  sothys sample packets.

1 sothys lipstick ( neon orange )

 tiny square of  rose et marius soap

panier hand cream

 shower gel

shampoo

Honey candies from provence

 

NO JEWELRY NO SOCKS

 

I really doubt the retail on this is even 200 dollars . I feel so upset considering some people got 2 jewelry items I have the right to be very upset.  I don't know what to do. I have wrote to them in the past and they never answer.  I am on a yearly sub.  Any suggestions what I should do?

wow. sorry to hear.  while the variation is nice in some terms, when there are such huge discrepancies, it's not so nice.  just try and reach out.  If your annual is within a specified time within your credit card, maybe you can refute if is really doesnt match advertisement.  Hate to go that route.  But may need to open first then cancel if resolved. Hopefully they will make it right.  And HOPEFULLY, they will start to to evaluate at least making the boxes comparable if they do these variations.

@ Ugh. I am so sorry.

You should absolutely reach out to them again...and this time tell them that there are items "missing" from your box.

This really seems like a case of missing items.

Also many people have received the beauty elixir along w/ the oil..so that is another product to add to your "missing" list.

 

Good luck! And keep us posted.

My box came earlier this morning.  I'll be heading home soon to open it and will make sure to report back as to what I received.  Until then, to pass the time, I checked out the OP facebook page and noticed they deleted a crapload of comments left by subscribers!  As recently as yesterday, on their page, anyone reading the comments left by people could tell how upset the subscribers were with what happened with the 1.3, but now when you read the comments that are left over from their deletefest it just looks like a bunch of people requesting tracking information- which an outsider could take to mean that we are all excited about getting our box, when in fact, for most of the month we have been panicked that we were being lied to and would in fact not receive a box.  Just though I would mention that...because as an annual subscriber that will definitely be one of the factors as to whether I decide to cancel this subscription and dispute it with my credit card company (how they chose to save face and delete comments rather than chalking it up to growing pains, and a learning experience, something to not do again).  Also, did anyone else notice that the new box (1.4) hasn't been announced yet??  i know this box is only two volumes old; however, in the past, OP would announce the new theme for the next box right before mailing out the current one, or shortly after the current one has been mailed out.  So far, neither has happened yet- and with my calculations, should have by now.  Which makes me wonder if this might be the last OP box we see??  Part of me hopes not, because aside from this box, OP seemed to be off to a pretty good start.

It is clearly an error.

Just assume it will get fixed and they will send you the additional missing products.

 

Try not to get too disappointed yet.

I feel certain they will fix this for you.

My box was just delivered & I'm not disappointed but I'm also not overly excited-

 

I received:

 

-Tassia Canellis - teeny tiny hoops with a little coral bead- not my style- nothing in the book looks like these hoops - $60

-radiance elixir - $50

-beauty oil- $35

- la fare shampoo- $25

-foot cream- $15

-cow ur de cigale body gel- $25

-2 panier des sens lotions - lemon & lavender-$30

-rose et marius- tiny soap square- $15

-lavender sachel- $15

-honey candy - $15

- sothy lipstick in nude - maybe $15

 

My grand total is around $300-- if I would've gotten any of the Eloise fiorentino jewelry items, I would've been extremely happy & not cared about value.

 

Sorry @ .. Definitely reach out to them . It seems your definitely missing items. Whomever pack my box just kinda threw everything together, my guess is due to a hurry. I know in the past when others were missing items, they let them request what they wanted... Maybe you'll end up getting everything you want -- keep us posted!!

Gosh, I'm starting to get worried that they got us to buy an annual subscription - and it's going downhill now. 

 

Hopefully this is just some sort of error with a few boxes going in rush after the Mother's Day box.  I doubt their CEO and owner would want her name in a permanent google search associated with negative press around this. It doesnt sound like there are a lot of employees so this would fall back to the owner.

The beauty products are really nice & I'm excited to try them out-- all the packaging is super cute & French. The sachel of lavender is my favorite item in the box- it smells heavenly !! The honey candies are strangely addicting.. I've ate 2 & I can't stop thinking about them... I've never had anything like them before... They looked so cute in the container that I hated opening it.

 

It just seems that I'm missing that fashion item.. The WOW factor. Month 1 I got the clutch & last month I got the scarf.. Both of these items IMO were the big ticket items. I'm staying positive that this is 1 off volume & the next volume will be AMAZING!!! I'm ready to go to Bordeux ... Or the French Riviera is incredible!!!! I'm excited for their next announcements!!

  Thanks  ... on a positive note the things they did send me are beautiful.  I doubt they will answer my email if they do I will let you all know.  I have no idea what to do about my yearly sub.  I just hope they send me a few items that may be missing  !!

I posted a nice post to them on facebook about my box asking them what happened.  They deleted it. Actually they deleted all posts I have ever made.  If they read my post then they saw my questions about my box. I also saw others with questions that got deleted.  This is really sleazy to delete questions .  People here seem really mellow compared to the people on MUT  they are as upset as me.

I received my box and my envelope is empty too. I checked all in it and in the box, no jewelry. I sent them a message. I did receive:

 

1. Rose et Marius soap in the flowery fragrance (I received the basil sent in my Mother's Day box) - $15

2. Honey candy - $15

3. Lavender sachet (this is Ventoux and I received Sault in Mother's Day box) - $15

4. Sothys lipstick in orange - $29? (saw several online retailers with this price)

5. Sothys nail lacquer in rouge nuit (love this color) - $13?

6. La Fare foot cream - $15

7. La Fare shampoo - $17

8. Coeur de Cigale body lotion - $21

9. Panier des sens lemon hand cream - $8

10. Oliv radiance elixir - $50 (can't find this on the Oliv website, converted cost from British site)

11. Oliv beauty oil (leaked on to my empty jewelry envelope) - $9 (did price wrong, but the most I think this sells for is $15-$18)

 

I'm happy to try the different Rose et Marius soap and sachet, but 3 creams?!? I don't care if they are for different parts of the body and 2 oils? Nope! I made sure to tell them about the missing jewelry and the almost duplicate items.

 

Total - $213-$216 and I don't have the annual subscription so with a one time discount I paid $120. I know people can be happy with items they received and not worry about if the value is there, but not at $150 a box (if I stick around that's what 1.4 will cost) and they shouldn't make claims they can't live up to. Don't tell me I'm going to get a $400 value and not come anywhere near it!

 The stuff they send it lovely its the deception in the value and the lack of  jewelry items I am having a problem with,  I wonder if anyone will get the Eloise fiorentino  gorgeous jewelry.  The tassia ring people are getting seems like it might not  be so great . I have really small fingers so I don't know.  I would also have loved a pair of socks.

 Got my box out of the garbage and tore it apart to see if they sent me the envelope. I didn't even get the empty envelope.  I feel so sad literally.

I just got my box, and I also had an empty Tassia Cannelis envelope! Other than that, I am very happy with what I received, and I guess since it was my first box, I got a few things left over from previous boxes, which I'm actually happy about. I received:

 

1) Popup candle in Montwalk scent

2) Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee 0.25 oz purse spray

3) Honey candy

4) Lavender sachet

5) La Fare Volumizing and Shining Shampoo (6.7 oz)

6) La Fare Succulent Foot Cream (1 oz)

7) Oliv' Beauty Oil (2.5 oz)

8) Oliv' Radiance Elixir (0.5 oz)

9) Rose et Marius melon & basil exfoliating soap (1.18 oz)

10) Panier des Sens relaxing lavender hand cream (1 oz)

11) Sothys lipstick in Beige St. Germaine

12) Sothys nail lacquer in Beige Doux

13) Sothys matte eyeshadow in Taupe Intemporel

 

I'll have to figure up the value later, but I do feel like I got a lot of nice things I'll use and enjoy for what I paid for the discounted annual sub, especially of they resolve the issue of the empty envelope. I just hope things get back on track for Vol. 1.4, and we'll see more of the higher value fashion items.

I agree 100%. I told them I would have liked the socks instead of the 3 creams.

Yeah, I wonder why so many people are getting these empty envelopes. It's not like they can say someone forgot to put them in the box. I would love to see what a reviewers box looks like. I'm keeping an eye out to see what Liz on MSA gets.

I got an empty envelope too but then I found the tiniest ring hidden in the black packing paper.

It's more like a half ring on me...won't go over my knuckle (and I have normal size fingers)

 

I am rushing out now and will list my entire contents later, but mine was one of the leaner boxes...

no socks, no Eloise Fiorentine etc....

My earrings were sooooo teeny tiny-- if they fell out of the envelope, I totally would've missed them. Check your packaging & I hope you ladies find the missing rings/earrings.

I went back through my box again to make sure I didn't miss it and no luck :(  My envelope wasn't closed and the flap was straight up, like they didn't try to close it, so I'm thinking if it was that small, it may have fallen out when they were getting the box ready. Maybe it's on the floor of the warehouse in Texas? On this next inspection I saw just how much of the oil leaked out into my box and I'm glad I didn't get the socks, it would have soaked it up!

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • 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.
