Circular Swap rules:


  • Everyone must be willing to pay for the shipping of the box to the next person, with tracking and you must communicate with the group (box arrive, shipping, tracking number, what you took, what you added etc.) that not only helps everyone keep and eye on things but keeps things fun! 
  • Make a Post in this thread as soon as you get the box. 
  • Please mail the circular swap box within 5 days, taking longer than 5 days (without any communication with the group will probably result in being excluded from future swaps). The 5 days *includes* Saturdays but doesn't include Sundays or USPS holidays.
  • PM the next swapper in line the tracking number (again no tracking number could result in being excluded in the future)
  • Post at least one picture of items you're taking and and one picture of the items you're adding.
  • Secure post-it note on items that have been used/opened or swatched. 
  • No nail polish/perfumes or flammables, as they are required to go ground.

 


Aiming start date is: Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Circular swap box process:

  1. The box starts and ends with Reija, she picks the order and mails the box to the first swapper.
  2. The first swapper in line posts here when the box arrives (note any negative condition of the box or contents. damaged box, broken items or missing box all together).
  3. Swappers have five days to sort through the box and select items to take (take as much as you desire) and items to add to the box *don't forget to add pictures here*
  4. If you do not want to take anything from the box, no problem. No need to add anything but you're welcome to add items if space permits. 
  5. Please note five swapping days is NOT business days, the five days includes Saturdays but not Sundays or holidays. If circumstances prevent you from completing a swap within 5 days please PM a moderator right away and post on the thread that you may be delayed (some reasons for delays could be: illness, work trips, vacations, snow/weather etc.) We're pretty understanding provided we have a heads up on what's going on. 
  6. Mail the box and PM the tracking number to the next swapper.
  7. Process moves the same way until the last swapper in line gets the box and Pm's Reija for return of the box. This means if you are at the end of the list or near the end you'll be waiting several weeks for the box to arrive (please be aware that's why we enforce 5 days so people in line are not waiting forever for their turn). That's not necessarily a bad thing, people add great items all along the way even at the end. I've been at the beginning, middle and end of the swap and always found items I wanted in the box.

We're not trying to overload everyone with rules but we want to be sure the process is clear from the get go, if you're not comfortable with any of the above rules or process feel free to follow the thread and see how it unfolds and consider joining us for a future swap.

 

Please comment on this post if you wish to participate and start gathering up those unwanted and unloved beauty items.

Looks like we are ready to get going with the next box since there are no more sign ups. Can't wait!! I have so much stuff that the box is going to be full. I'm going to try and leave some room and see how it goes. I'll do the drawing ASAP, an old fashion style with pieces of paper and names put in an empty birchbox box and draw them from there. I'll post the order here as soon as the drawing is done. :)

The only lotto I ever win is going first for the circular swap. If only I had that luck with the megamillions.

And these are the items that didn't fit. The only item I took from the original lot was the Estée Lauder cleanser. I would have love to have taken more but I'm drowning in samples/products.

    • You can create eye-catching looks with short hair whether it’s for work, a casual meeting or a party. I have short hair but I always do new hairstyles like twist hairdo, Bouffant, twisted French twist etc. Last month I went to my friend’s marriage and for this wedding party, I went to Bluedrake parlor for making some hairstyle. Really they made a very good hairstyle and after seeing that, I forgot that I have short hair.
    • Thanks for sharing the article. I just can't stop wondering how many people suffer from mental diseases. Depression, anxiety, stress, fatigue - these disorders are more serious than someone could think. Literally every fifth citizen of the USA is sentenced to one of this disorders and is potential client of  Canadian Pharmacy Online . That's sad.
    • As part of my university project focussing on the beauty market, I need to understand how much people are buying, what they're buying and what they know about it. I need about 100 participants of makeup buyers (a lot I know) and it would be a real help if people could spare a few minutes to fill it out for me! Thank you so much in advance!  https://goo.gl/forms/Bajb8b7lKtH2xulT2
