    Do any of you guys get these? I want them all but I've seen so many duds especially from ipsy that I'm afraid to try :(
    And most don't ship to Canada :( :(

    Are you talking about those scratch n' sniff perfume sample things you get in the mail?

    Not exactly, monthly subscription boxes come with a bunch of products to try, usually sample sizes but they do often contain perfume samples.

    I’ve tried glossy box. I did get some great stuff, but also a lot of crap.

    Do you remember how much the subscription was? A lot of my friends do ipsy but it's like twice the price in Canada with shipping :no: If I'm going to spend $30 a month on makeup I'd rather pick out my own stuff at Sephora and not get any rejects

    I had a glossy box sub in UK for 6 month and it was ok not great. Then I had birch box and I got a lot of great stuff but it was all sample or deluxe sample size which I feel I should not have to pay for.

    I feel like $25? I can’t remember. But you got one full size product in every box, so it wasn’t like I was paying more than the products were worth. It was just a lot of products that I didn’t actually want. So many brands that I had never heard of. I got colour pop once and it was super exciting, but I got colours I didn’t like lol.

    I'm starting to wonder why women need make-up anyways, lol? :) I mean, in Victorian England, it was associated with the lowest-classes and prostitutes. :shifty:

    Does Harry's count? Because I get that monthly an absolutely love it but it could be considered a monthly beauty product for men.

    Maybe I like looking like a Victorian prostitute. Have tanned skin was also associated with lower class up until the 1950s or so.

    Well usually it's just the razors monthly but I do get the shaving cream and post shave balm every so often (as needed).

    It’s not really the same idea as the beauty boxes then since you always get exactly what you need.

    You should buy a mystery box from Ebay and unbox it in a video

    A lot of them are actually cutting back on this and limiting them to 3-5 per person. :(


    And I really want the monthly Sephora box as well as another but I forgot what it's called. Birchbox I think?
