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! I still wouldn't give up headphones. I can’t do without music) At my house I made a large audio system with a modern receiver. It gives amazing sound quality. You can visit the site to Compare AV receivers. Do you feel what opportunities open up for music lovers? I even argued with my friends about this. However, they acknowledged my point when they listened to the music of Lindsay Stirling in my home.
    • I have had no problem whatsoever applying false eyelashes (with adhesive) for the past 10 years or so of my life. For some reason within the last month absolutely no matter what product I use (lashes or adhesive) my falsies refuse to stick. I try holding them down and they simply spring off once I remove my fingers. It’s incredibly bizarre. I can’t recall having changed my beauty routine in the last few weeks and my skin is not oily, nor am I using oil based products on my eyes. Does anyone have any idea what’s happening or what I might try to fix it!? 
    • How many people - so many opinions. I really like music but can’t use headphones. This puts pressure on my head and my head begins to hurt in an hour. I NEVER saw my friends really high-quality headphones. They always have flaws in sound. Only the option from the recording studio suited me completely. This is a very, VERY expensive option. Therefore, I limited myself to buying a home theater with surround sound and a good audio system in the car.
    • Always welcome, can I help you with something else?
    • I sympathize with you. It’s not normal to control a loved one. I can give you a hint anyway. If you saw an unfamiliar number you can identify it using the site - https://free-lookup.net This is the easiest way, even for a mobile phone. Enter the number, and the site uses all the algorithms for identification. This will save you from many embarrassing situations.
