  1. I got my Freeman mystery box today. 10 full size products and 7 foil packets! I was expecting way more foil packets. My psssst dry shampoo arrived empty too. I emailed Freeman, but haven’t heard anything yet. Definitely worth the buy.

    • Same here. Just received great full size products but my pssst dry shampoo also arrived empty.

    • same thing happened to my dry shampoo

    • I thought the dry shampoo was empty as well, but when you shake it out, it’s just super lightweight.

    • Were they skin care products or hair and body? Thanks!

      • Bath and body, and lots of it.

  2. Is there a listing for this freeman mystery bag on the swap site? I didn’t see one and I have a few things I’d like to put up for swaps.

  3. I got my Freeman box today. Honestly, I was expecting a lot of face masks, but instead I got a lot of full-size products—way more than $30 worth! And almost all of it is stuff I’ll use. There was a lot of foot stuff.

    • I was surprised at how big the products were! I was expecting a bunch of packets and sample sizes and was really happy to see that wasn’t the case. One of my bottles was open and all of the powder in it ended up all over the box and all of the other products. I emailed them to ask if they could send a replacement powder, since the bottle arrived empty, but haven’t heard back from them yet. Other than that, I’m really happy with the box!

  4. I ordered mine! I can use the extra packets for Christmas gift baskets!

  5. I see shipping is $6.92 for the Freeman mystery bag. Are there any free shipping offers to use?

    • Just found the answer to my own question. They offer ups free shipping.

  6. I totally sprung for the Freeman bag. Why not? The Burt’s Bees not so much, although it would be a good gift!

  7. I love Burt’s Bees!!! But this is all travel sized items, so I’m less impressed with the $25.00 price point. Freeman’s, also great stuff! But again, I’m not into all the packets. Must skip on both for me :/

    • I felt the same on the Burt’s Bees. I need a little more for that price point, but love love love that line.

    • Actually got the freeman’s mystery bag today and there were only 4 single use masks packets and TEN full sized products!

  8. So I really need to stop stalking this site. It costs me way to much money. However I ordered two of each of these. They will work nice for Christmas baskets.

  9. I quit smoking so that’s my excuse. All cheaper than cigarettes and I deserve a treat…’s been a lomg long 10 months. Besideds, my monthly gifts make me happy

    • Congratulations Jessica! Yes, you do deserve a treat 🙂

    • Yay for you! Congratulations on being smoke free! Your lungs are thanking you, and now so is your skin with all these fun treats 🙂

    • Good for you! I know it’s hard so even better!

  10. I love Burt’s Bees. Hope funds become available for me to purchase. For anyone who is interested, their cuticle cream is fantastic along with their other products. My favorite is Therapeutic Crystals which I can only find on their website.

  11. Liz, can you please add the Freeman Beauty bag to the swap site? I’ve been requesting since last year — LOL. I think my emails to you go directly to your junk mail?

    • I am so sorry. I can get swamped in email and get behind. We’ll get it listed.

  12. Anyone know what typically the Freeman bag is like?

    • I’m afraid to know!! It was my bday last month so justified going nuts on boxes I have never had before; Glossybox, Peaches & Petals, Adore Me, AND Bespoke. Have been on the fence for Nov Popsugar. Thank God I am allergic to honey so no Burt’s for me!!!! HELP ME!!!!!

      • I’ve been going CRAZY since I found this website… I went from 1 subscription to like 17 in just a month! :/ I clearly have a problem….

        • I wish I could afford 17 subscriptions!

      • hehe. sounds like you are having fun. hope you enjoy everything 🙂

      • Haha I’ve been the same way lately…but without a birthday as an excuse. 🙂 I picked up 2 Burt’s Bees and 1 Freeman figuring I can cobble together gifts for dance teacher, gymnastics teacher, etc.

        • My birthday is next week. But I’ve already given myself gifts about half a dozen times…UD Vice 4 palette from Sephora (needed to buy *something* to get the free lippies for my birthday with my order). Ulta (well I bought that with mostly points and a gift card). Couple of subs. Couple of Amazon orders. Etc.

    • Kristin,

      Based off the YouTube reviews, it looks like the previous mystery box contained a lot of those sachet packs. I think the reviewer whose video I watched had about 10-12 of those. It had both facial mask sachets as well as foot cream sachets. There was also full size face serum, shampoo, foot scrubs etc. I’m not a fan of those little foil packets so I think I’ll skip this one. Anyway, hope this helps!

      • Thank you! I love to pack those individual packets when I’m traveling. Plus you get to pick 4 more at checkout.

        I’m thinking some of those with a headband, candle & nice chocolate bar will make a cute spa night in gift.

        • I actually do like those packets. Was thinking about this yesterday. Hey, I still have money in my checking account and tomorrow is payday…

        • Jen, how do you get the extra 4 packets? I’m at the checkout page now and don’t see that option anywhere.
          Also, for all those who are ordering the Freeman bag, there is a code – ADDME – to get an additional free Eclos Daily Facial Cleansing Oil.

      • I purchased the Freeman bag last year. Those sachet packs are quite large, larger than anything that’s usually in beauty boxes. I’ve gotten 4-5 uses from each package and I’m not stingy with the product when I use it.
