Recommended Posts

Wow thats brave and a little unsettling (how many of those lipsticks or earrings do you think were swatched/tried on before returned).  I don't why I m surprised but I am.

Really disappointing that they are marketing the "extra" boxes this way.  They should either disclose that these are returned boxes or flat out tell everyone that they are not returned boxes.  If they are the returned boxes that is very deceitful marketing.

I don't think they need to disclose this.  I always think it is interesting when people treat subscription boxes any differently than a regular store.  It's normal for a store to put an item on sale if they are trying to ensure that it sells, or to sell items that have been tried on and/or returned without disclosing it.  I'm pretty sure PSMH only took back unopened / unused boxes, so why hold them to higher standards?  The only thing that would be sketchy is if someone swatched the lipstick but I'm sure they inspected the returned items.

i'm curious about the price. i paid full price. will NOT be happy if it is less. 

 

I was wondering that too.  I assume they would have included it in the email as a selling point if they were going to discount it.  I bet they think that even with all of the PR mess, there is still enough demand to sell them at full price.  I'm not sure that there is...I think this box should have been priced at $150 or maaaaaaaaybe $165 at the very most.  If they can't get rid of them it wouldn't surprise me if they sold them at a discount or bundled it with a deal on the monthly sub or something, like all of those deals with the December box.

It kinda skeeves me out to think about getting worn earrings and swatches lippies.  But that can happen from a store.  Kinda off-topic but I work with someone who buys things for a special occasion and then returns them.   It grosses me out and I truly hope that s not a common practice or I ll have to start making my own everything LOL

I expect transparency in their communications because of how they are marketing these "extra" boxes - to me the current marketing feels deceitful.

and check out the tiny print about the earrings ... finally admitting the value was off.  I think they should do something for the customers who kept the box especially the ones that were originally told the boxes couldn't be returned so they opened the items.  Oh well I m kinda surprised they d open this can of worms up.  How many boxes do you ladies think were actually returned vs. kept?

I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall in the PSMH meetings.  I also wondered this with the Nina Garcia winter box everyone returned.  I can never tell if it just SEEMS like everyone returned it because I hang out in forums with people who are sub box experts and therefore have a different set of expectations than your standard customer, or if the masses really are that unhappy and it is being reflected in the forums I read.  I think that just like forums can enable people, they can also lead people to be unhappier with something than they would have if they experienced the box in a bubble.  We need a PSMH mole to get us all of the dirt, haha.

I ended up keeping it as it seemed too much of a hassle to send back, and I did like the earrings - just not "$200 like"!  I am sure there were more in my boat and the boat of those that opened it.  I would have done a chargeback if they reduced it.  I am that passionate over the whole thing.

    • Actually, people always spend plenty of time to remove makeup, have your ever tried the fast way to do that. If you never see, just look at here, a ultrasonic facial device has a powerful function to remove makeup effectively and quickly. 😘
    • wow, so cool! It is wonderful skin care tips. Love it!!!
    • Hi, I use anti-aging serum from anahitaonlinestore.com. It works really great for me. I use it after cleaning and before applying my daycream. I guess everybody has to find what really works for them.
    • I've recently become more and more invested in makeup but the only problem is I can't get my make up to apply smoothly, especially over my nose. I've tried using a motorised and have a good cleansing routine for my face but when eve I try to put my foundation on it becomes all caky around my nose (I use bare minerals powder) Can anybody suggest anything to stop tis happening. 
    • This seems to be true of Damien. We have completely stopped traveling somewhere far since we got cats. There are three of them now. We made a special backyard house for them - https://thepetsmaster.com/best-outdoor-cat-houses/ They can live there for several days if we leave for a short while. However, one of us always stays at home during the holidays. This is our price as the owner of wonderful cats.
