Sub boxes from the last decade that I miss

Recommended Posts

I remember when I first found Birchbox. It has been almost ten years. Since that time, so many beauty boxes have come and gone. There are many that did not work out, but I enjoyed them and miss them. 

  • Beauty Army - I was there the day it launched. It was an event! I still have one of the pretty Army boxes - the white one. I loved picking my products and receiving those cute boxes. I got some lovely things. 
  • Beautyfix - The old version, where you could pick several items you wanted. It was great value! 
  • The Look Bag - I was thrilled when they sent me samples of the Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection. These were special creams that Dr. Laszlo had blended specifically for his celebrity patients. There was a Grace Kelly cream, a Marilyn Monroe cream - they were wonderful! I was over the moon.
  • Sample Society - They had high end niche brands. I remember getting Butter London and Dyptique. I loved getting the box in the mail. Then they had the warehouse sales and I got a whole pile of the boxes at once, which was amazing. I'm thinking of the era with the black boxes, not so much the red Allure boxes. 
  • Sindulge - This was my favorite ever. Sadly it did not last. I think it was too ambitious. They launched and you could subscribe for one cent for the first month, then you had an esthetician put together a box for you based on your beauty type and concerns. You would do a video call with her, or send in a form. I sent in the form and the lady sent me a terrific box. I really believed it was just for me. I don't think they could keep up with the program. 
  • So Choix - I still have some perfume vials and a little jar with some shards from Guerlain Meteorites from them. I loved them but I bet beauty companies did not, since they hand cut samples for you of some very costly stuff. 

Thanks for the fun times, I miss all of you.

    • Hello Everyone, I am fascinated by makeup that I keep on watching them, but now I am thinking to build a platform where I can get connected to popular freelance artists and individuals who are seeking for help. Please can someone guide me what should I do about it? Thanks

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
