One of the spoilers on Facebook shows the dry shampoo, something about the one that was in the NBC box being in this one as well.  Also, I am so excited for the special box of full-size NBC items that's available on the FCS website today.

 

Edit: I ordered the NBC Special box.  12 items (7 full-size) and a t-shirt.  I can't wait.  I got the confirmation e-mail and my card was charged the $49.99.  Yay! 

 

My charge for the Winter box should be tomorrow.  My card was screwed up between the 1st & 2nd Soap Boxes that I ever got and my charge date is now every 3 months on the 25th.

I got my shipping notice for the Winter Soap Box yesterday.  I'm practically dancing in my seat at work in anticipation.  Unfortunately, I put in a change of address on Saturday and it says it's out for delivery right now in the city I moved from.  Oh, well, I'll take the 1-hr bus ride to go get it if it says Delivered after I get off work tonigh.  Ugh.

I have had a hard time getting into this subscription. Last box I got was the Wizard of Oz. Although I loved the products, I felt the tiny samples didn't give me much to try. I didn't feel like I got my money's worth. Everytime I would go to the site to get the full size products, they were always sold out or not listed. I wonder if it was just this box or if this is an ongoing issue? There are tons of people who enjoy this subscription and I want to be one of those persons! lol

I really enjoy this sub, all the products smell amazing. Admittedly I haven't used many of them, I'm trying to use up other older products first. But I really enjoy opening the box, the presentation and the scents. I try to think of it as a $9 box since you get the $10 credit code and I definitely would pay $9 for the box.

See that is interesting. I didn't know you get a $10 credit code. So to me I was paying $20 for tiny samples. If you are able to use the code in their store, I wish they would keep a larger stock of things. Most items I am interested in are usually sold out.

 Yes they email you a $10 code after you get the box. Shipping is still expensive, but at least you get a $10 credit which usually covers shipping and some of whatever you're buying. They do seem to have very limited quantities of some things and you have to act fast on the special releases. I bought a body wash and hand sanitizer for my bf today and paid almost $13 for both with shipping after the $10 credit. But I agree if you don't use the $10 credit it is $20 for samples which isn't so great.

I got one too and used the $10 off code that comes with the sub to make the total 6.75 just paying for shipping. I thought that the fortune cookie soap was adorable! The body butter smells good, but that smell lasts forever! I could literally smell it all day long and even all night and I only applied it on my hands. I've used the hand sanitizer too and I like it so far.

I like the winter box.  Usually there's at least one scent in most boxes that I don't like, but the winter box - every scent is good.  My favorite is the scent of the whipped cream!

 

Also, the winter launch party is tomorrow.  I'm not sure if I'll get anything but I'm definitely going to see what products they have in the World's Greatest cup of coffee (or whatever the coffee-smelling scent was called.)

This box sounds so exciting. I've been considering getting a sub to this but haven't yet. I ordered the Christmas box to try first. :) Excited for you all who got this Winter box, sounds like a good one.  :)

@@Reija I bought one of the grab bags and it's supposed to be delivered today. I'm very excited to see what will be in it. Every box I've received so far smells fantastic; I bought the pumpkin lip scrub, lotion and shampoo bar, all smell heavenly. I haven't tried the shampoo bar yet but love the other two.

I bought a grab bag with my $10 code, and received it today! For the $6.75 or whatever it was (for shipping), I received a 4oz Whipped Cream in Wendy Bird, an 8oz bath oil in Dressed to Kill, a linen spray in Not so Sweet Southern Belle, and a fortune cookie soap in Raspberry Creme. I'm really happy with this grab bag!

I got my bag today too, and it was a great steal for $6.75. I got a Fortune Cookie Soap in Nature's Chill Pill, 4 oz Whipped Cream in Kiss, OCD Hand Sanitizer in Freedom to Foam (smells awesome), Hydrate me in American Royalty (looks like an in shower lotion), and I'm Pleasant Damn It! Hair Oil. I might only end up keeping the hydrate me and hand sanitizer and gift the lotion and soap.

I paid full price but it was worth it. :)  I got Wendy Bird Hydrate me, Tommy Guns and Baseballs Bats fortune cookie soap, American Royalty Pomade, Dressed to Kill whipped cream and a crazy Groom's Cake bath bomb (that totally looks like a cupcake I could eat!).

    • Anxiety won’t make you ugly, but it can do something even more awful: it will poison your mental health slowly. I would recommend not to waist time and consult a professional ASAP (mine just prescribed me cbd oil which I used with special oil cartridge vaporizer and coped with this disease easily). 
    • I've been ordering from Yves Rocher since 1991. It was when I was in university, my happy young years. I used to have fun ordering with my Mom. Brings back good memories. The promos with the free gifts are a major weakness of mine! 
    • Thank you very much for the article. I'm also interested in fashion and I'm interested in the history of fashion. I often find interesting articles on the Internet. Jeans have long been a very necessary part of our everyday clothes. Now there are many different styles of jeans that will underline any figure. This article  https://stylejeanswear.com/what-is-cowboy-cut-jeans/ has a lot of interesting information about cowboy jeans. I like the fact that the article describes what type of figure they are more suitable. It seems to me that it may be interesting to you too.

    • To be honest, this is a very sensitive situation. You definitely need to talk to your uncle and ask him directly about his feelings. I prefer unusual Dating sites and applications and therefore communicate with people who have a bdsm fetish. If you share my preferences, then be sure to read vanilla umbrella review and download it to your smartphone. It will facilitate search of the man and will help you to spend cool time.
