Net-A-Porter Holiday Kit

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else going for this one?  I was so disappointed  by Nina Garcia's quarterly box that I treated myself.  Not a lot of full sized items but it's all high end stuff, worth ~$350

This looks like a nice one! I'm holding off for now though. Trying to get my willpower better. :D I have the Oribe conditioner thanks to Birchbox points and it's great.

I had to do it ("had to" lol...) because of the full sized Oribe! That alone makes up a huge chunk of the cost and the other products are luxe (and it is kind of nice knowing exactly what is in it)...

I caved and bought one.  I have so many beauty products to go through it is ridiculous.  I still couldn't resist.  This box contains so many products I wanted to try.  I figured out it is $9.27 a product.  For trying luxury items I felt it was pretty good price.

I ordered one and it's due to be delivered today.  I've always thought their boxes were fantastic.  I'm very much looking forward to trying that shampoo and conditioner!

I got my box yesterday and it was awesome. I really like the Smith and Cult lipgloss color. I also really liked the perfume! I was worried it would smell too masculine because it is "unisex" but I was obsessed with smelling my wrists after putting it on

Smith and Cult lipglossses are great. Their polishes are great too. This looks like such a great box! I'm happy for all you who ordered it and get to enjoy it. :)

I bought it last night, even though I really don't need anymore stuff. I want to try the hair products in it. Don't forget to use Ebates for 3% cash back.

I keep looking at this box. I'm thinking about getting it for the hair products alone but still trying to hold off. It looks like a such a great box.

Okay, so I don't want to detail out my specific issue with this box and what net-a-porter's fix was because I don't want people to abuse their extreme generosity, but let's just say that their customer service is absolutely phenomenal.  I will absolutely continue making purchases with them. 

 

Now for the box itself...this is a really nice way to test out some extremely high end / luxury products.  I would say go for it if you have the money and really want to treat yourself, or if you would buy oribe anyway.  The sample sizes are on the small side though, so while it's technically a great value ($139 for $392 of product), if you aren't used to luxury pricing you might feel like you didn't get enough product for your money.  Personally, I am trying to transition to buying fewer but nicer things (eventually, haha) so this was a nice way to test some amazing brands.   

 

So far I have tried:

By terry baume de rose - it's very hydrating and comfortable.  I hate wasting higher priced items on cuticles, so I'm definitely planning to use it on my lips even though rose isn't my favorite.  Excellent for travel.

Joya foxglove perfume - this is a really unique scent (perhaps because I haven't gone for unisex scents since my CK One days).  I like it but I don't think I'd repurchase.

Lancer polish - This has a decent amount of grit to it so I'm a little worried about my rosacea.  I think I'll use it 2x a week instead of 3x and pair it with my super nourishing Lancer night cream I'm still hoarding from last year's PSMH box. 

Sarah Chapman Skinesis - This stuff is AMAZING.  So silky and the scent is divine.  I will definitely repurchase (or ask for it for my birthday because it's $89 for 15mL).  Of course I'd fall in love with a brand that carries a $490 product. 

I have only swatched the smith and cult and the burberry but they are both lovely.  Can't wait to play with them!

I did not know that they had a Holiday Kit, just ordered it. Looking for to trying the Oribe products, love the one I received in the Birchbox holiday box. The Smith and Cult lipgloss will go well with the nail polish received also in the Holiday box. And Net-A-Porter must have really quick turn around time, because my box is ready for shipment, received tracking already. Can't wait to try. I did really good and did not use my Sephora discount this past weekend. Also, if you order be sure to use Ebates and get a little cash back.

@@lauradiniwilk The Sarah Chapman Skinesis is actually $93.00 for 30ml (1 oz) So... it's a deal!!

 

Link?  I was going off the N-A-P price for the 15mL.  The 30mL is $159 at bloomingdale's...would love to find it for $93!  Not to purchase, but to send the link to my hubs with heavy hinting, haha.

DANG, I always forget about ebates.  Didn't use it for this or for the summer box (which is still on sale, and which I just purchased today).

I really like the EBATES, use it online for NM, Sephora, Ulta, Macy's, Nordstrom, the list goes on and on. Now Net-A-Porter! Love it!

I broke all the travel size products down in price and it really is a great deal. Only a couple of items that were under $15.00. Really a great deal on this box.

What is the box called? I see another one but it doesnt show that it is on sale?  How much was it previously?

 

EDIT: Never mind.  You mean that they are still selling it.  Not that it is "on sale" - I understand now :)  It's The Beauty Box.

Sorry, yeah...for sale, not on sale.  You'd never guess I have a job that requires precision in language :)

I've been thinking about the same thing lately. Better quality, but fewer items. I'd really be spending about the same amount. Plus, now that I'm in my (cough mid cough cough 40s) high quality skin care items are becoming a lot more important to me. I've been thinking about this box, but a couple of the items are repeats for me. And as a curly haired girl, I'm very particular (obsessive) about what I put in my hair.

Got  my box and love it.  This is my first time using the Oribe and so far I do think it's a great shampoo/conditioner.  And I hadn't been using drugstore stuff.  Always wanted to try that By Terry lip balm.  Do like it; wouldn't pay the full freight for it, though.

    • 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.
