POPSUGAR All-Star Mystery Box (It's Back) *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

You're right I copied it from MSA's blog making my box $150 value.

 

whoops I already complained to PS but I'm sure they'll just be like sorry your not happy oh well tee hee.

 

Good thing I can swap or gift most of this stuff. Oh well. Win some lose some

I ended up with 2 of the #3 and my Mom got 2 of the #3 boxes.  We are both writing in to let them know we are not happy.  They did it right with the first mystery box sale, people got different boxes when they ordered multiples.  So I know they can do it.  This is just unacceptable and a fast way for them to lose trust with their customers.  I have a feeling they will be getting many unhappy emails.  I hope they listen.

I think the charger and the post its would make a good office gift if I get a male in the secret Santa drawing as long its not one of the other ladies in the office that get PS.

I got box #7, which I hate and want nothing from it. I was convinced I was getting box #9 based on measurements, which would've been great, but no. I'm done with PS, never ordering another box from them again. I don't understand why they could send out variations last time; but not this time.

Oh man I'd love the candles and Oribe spray from that box.

I won't be home tonight after I receive my box, but I will post items in the morning unless @@Pixels gets to it first.

That would be awesome!! No box for me yet.. and it comes to my work address so I might not see it till tomorrow morning.

I emailed PS about receiving the same box when I ordered multiples and they offered to send an extra gift or send return labels to send them both back and send out new ones. So we'll see if they actually follow through with sending return labels.

Ugh. I got box 8. The only thing in it that'll probably be useful is the cell phone charger. I already have one from the September box, but I'll likely lose it at some point. I like the Cargo blush and I've been using it every other day, but I don't need a second one because the first one I received will probably take me three years to finish. I'll just be giving away or selling most of this.

I don't sub to popsugar so getting a mystery box is a lot of fun, I was even sort of looking forward to a swan floatie-thing. Now I wish I had purchased more than one, there's so many things I wanted and I have to wait another week before mine comes. I think out of all the variations box 3 would be the one I'm hoping for, or box 8 because it has a candle and those post-its (I think those are super cute).

I received box #3 which I'm happy with, I wanted the heartbeat necklace, and the mascara and Oribe which I missed in the mini boxes. The rest is gonna be given away. I'd lurveeee one of the pretty candles tho. Mine was 3.5 lbs from CA listed as 11x11x11 but it wasn't that size in reality.

Arrrgggg!!! I got sucky box #6.  At least my chips were not busted up, I have already traded the sticky notes, bingo going to TFT or Lovelady Center, not sure what to do with the post cards.  The charger and hair stuff I may keep, oh and I forgot about that dern bottle of bubble bath that is a bugger to ship, store or even keep close to your tub!  @@Pixels, hope your box is better!

Now, off to debate it out over the PSNM box, to get or not to get!

That's why I'm gifting my bubble baths to my mom and my sister. I don't really want to ship that sucker.

I got box #6 also I was hoping for the box with the necklace or earrings. I figured I'd gift the bubble bath to my mom and the hair mask to my sister. Oh well at least I got some gifts out of it.

Darn :(. I got two of box number 4. The option I least wanted. I don't wear makeup. I have all of these items already and I haven't used them. Except for the Bridgeo. That stuff is awesome. But all the other stuff is junk.

I got two box #9. The one I least wanted because I have the silver and gold version of these earrings. It's like they knew what we didn't want. HAHAHAHA

Yay I got box 8, the candle smells just phenomenal. And the post-its, I need more. I didn't think the Cargo blush would be so light, its pretty but I don't think I'll be able to use it. I'm happy I got this box, I wish I had received a box with jewelry though. But still happy :)

I received my extra gifts.

They were... 

tea towel with lemon design on it,

Patchology Flashmasque Trio

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Restorative Leave in conditioner.

 

I appreciate that they sent out an extra for having duplicates.  Now what to do with 4 sets of postcards and bingo games.

    • 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.
