I have really thinking about subbing to this as I love bath products and such. Do you guys like the sub in general? Are the products good quality and are the scents usually nice? The price seems great for the amount of stuff you get.

@@littlemissnurse it depends where you live. If in the US the. Its a great sub. If overseas then no, its not as great. The box has samples sizes of the products but they also send out a $10 voucher for the new collection when its released. The releases as US time (so middle of the night UK time).

 

If in the UK and want to redeem the voucher the shipping charges are extortionate (minimum $17 and the fast rate starts at well over $50 for anything!). Also usually charged import duty as they put actual costs on the package so anything >£15 will attract duty of at least £15 so makes it very, very expensive to buy products from them, even with the voucher!

 

Autumn box will include bath powder, hair pomade, hair shampoo and atomiser (refillable) plus the cookie and a few other items. Vanilla, wine and cinnamon main scents. Ship this week :)

@@Alidolly thanks so much for the info! I ended up subscribing after reading some reviews online. The products are so cute and the price is not bad at all. I look forward to this autumn box. I love autumn and fall scents!

So apparently the cut off for signing up for the Fall box was Sunday and I signed up on Monday :angry::soap:

:angry: What a bummer!

 

I would have signed up also had I not been on no buy.

I just really wanted that Fall box and now they've already taken out the money and I won't be getting a box until November. Super frustrating.

I know it's not quite the same, but if you watch the launch party for the fall collection, you'll get a code that you can use to get the fall scents that interest you the most.

I am actually thinking about doing that! I really wanna try their body butters. I keep seeing blogs saying that that is a holy grail item. Thanks for the tip!

The body butters are great, and you can get a pack of 4 minis where you choose each of the scents! Things tend to sell out quickly during the launch, but are then restocked a week or two later, so don't get too discouraged if you miss out on things at first and don't settle for items you don't really want.

I just got the fall box today and LOVE it! This is only my 2nd box, I didn't know that this sub even existed until a few months ago. Everything smells fantastic, the shampoo bar is to die for.

I got my fall box today too.  I also love the scent of the shampoo bar.  The whip cream smells great too. Overall a really nice box.

 

Does anyone know when FCS is emailing the $10 codes this time?

I was planning on taking a break from the box (because I actually started to make some of my own lotions/lotion bars/bath fizzies lately, and i'm overrun with bath/body stuff), so I didn't update my card with them, I knew it was expired. 

 

I definitely just got a box in the mail today that they didn't even charge me for, and now they're emailing me because my card was declined.  Oops.  I'm conflicted on what to do because I really didn't want the box, but I also want to support small business, but I also don't want to be out $20 for something I didn't want in the first place... lol.

So when does the launch happen?

The launch is on Friday, August 21st at 6:00 p.m. CST.  

 

I tried to log in to update my card info because I seriously don't want to out them a full box, but it won't let me log in! 

 

Boo.  I'm going to have to call them.  I hate talking on the phone.  =( lol

What's the scents like in the new box? Is there a stand out product as my box has only just departed from US soil so will be at least another week. Wish they'd sent out the international orders a bit earlier so everyone received their box about the same time.

Mine arrived yesterday.   The WC smells like a very lightly scented copy of Green Is the New Black from the Witch, Please box.  The bath powder smells like Leaves from Bath & Body Works with apple cider thrown in.  The OCD is nasty.  It smells like sandalwood.  The perfume oil reminds me of Forever Sunshine doused in vanilla.  What is with the B&BW copies?  If I wanted those, I'd just go to B&BW.

Thanks - though only had the Peter Pan themed box so far so not sure about previous box smells. Love cinnamon (their Oogie Boogie soaps are so much fun).

 

See they've re-released the Sally whipped cream again - what Scents are in that one as the description is somewhat lacking in the top, middle and base note. Its expensive to ship to the UK so I don't want to chance buy if I end up hating it. TIA

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
