  1. Benzac is expired and smells and the ombre lip duo in peaches and cream is horrendous looking on me…still have other things to trytry but better value than the fall. Now if you buy the crappy fall one you get this one for free…would have been nice to get 5 for the price of 4. :/

  2. I actually wasn’t going to get this, but after getting it for my 21 year old daughter, I liked it and got the spring box on a quarterly subscription. I actually sent a message a week ago asking about shipping since I haven’t yet received my summer box, and cancelling my quarterly subscription. I actually think it’s a great value, better if you get the annual subscription. So I wanted to upgrade. Not 1, but 2 different customer service ladies have responded. No issues at all with cancelling my subscription at all. I have to go on and resubscribe to get the annual box. No problems. So don’t hesitate at all. There haven’t been any issues with any products we’ve received either. I’m a retired cosmetics executive, cosmetics products last at least a year, and most of them longer than that past the expiration date. Only with a few very sensitive herbal organic items which I have not seen any in this box, it’s not that high end, would I even worry about it. Mineral powders, actually they never expire.. fda just requires a date sometimes. 🙂

  3. I caved after seeing the spoilers because of the smashbox eyebrow powder and the too faced waterproof mascara. I was pretty disappointed, I thought the mascara was going to be full sized. Honestly when I had the box in front of me, nothing really wowed me. So I emailed customer service and asked them to cancel my subscription. I got a response the next day saying they were sad to see me go, but my subscription was cancelled and I would no longer be billed for future boxes. The whole process was easy and painless. In my experience they were super nice and helpful. Hopefully I won’t actually be charged for any upcoming boxes though based on everyone else’s responses. I guess I’ll have to wait and see!

  4. Warning!! Whatever you do, don’t subscribe to BeautyCON’s subscription box. They are a scam. They give you a 7 day window to cancel your subscription after receiving that seasons box OR you are stuck with buying the following seasons box. ON TOP of that they send crap items that are about to expire.
    I have subscribed to the top beauty boxes and none of them have such terrible Customer Care.

  5. As I expected, I got an e-mail today that they couldn’t charge my card. I even emailed them to cancel within the very specific 7 day timeframe AND deleted my card info after the last box.

    I feel this is very deceptive, they cater to younger women who may not know to read the fine print and I think they do this on purpose.

    This box actually looks exciting but right now I don’t want to order it just because they tried to charge me even though I followed all their ridiculous rules.

  6. Shipping is 6.99, if we buy the annual do we get charged once for shipping?

    • You get charged the $6.99 each box that is sent.

  7. Got mine today and I’m pretty impressed. I loved the Grav3yardgirl box and was worried that they couldn’t top that. They didn’t top that, but it was still a great box. Even stuff I don’t use I know someone who could use it. They keep this up then I won’t worry about their crappy cancellation policy because I won’t need it.

  8. Just got my box and I’m not as thrilled as I thought I would be. The benzac stuff smells SO horrible I would never be able to use it. & I originally signed up for this because of the too faced bts waterproof mascara thinking it was full size. So disappointed that it’s trial sized. Canceling after this

  9. Received an email from BeautyCon that they are revamping their customer service and adding more help so hopefully that translates into great customer service.
    Received a package from them today after receiving my box last week that contained some cute nail wraps. Did anyone else get these sent separate from their box? Or in their box?

    • I just got my nail wraps from the spring box. I also just got my summer box too. One of the products in the box expires in a couple of months 🙁 makes me wonder about the products that don’t have their expiration date on them :0

      • What product if I may ask?

        • Yes, it was the Benzac. It expires 09/16

          • Mine too

    • Yeeesss!!!! I did!!!

  10. So one of the bottles (I believe it was the Face oil pump) spilled all inside my box and everything is covered in grease. I would think they would have at least out a plastic seal on it or something? Kinda sucks. But other than tha the box is great.

    • Same thing happened to me. Wasn’t a lot of product spilled, but it did kinda get on everything! (Yes, taping it down or a plastic seal would have prevented it.) A paper towel pretty much fixed the problem for me.

      I agree that other than the small spill, I was really happy with this box. (LOVE the color of the brow product. Very usable for most.)

  11. I am pretty excited about his box. I had ordered last season and just forgot to cancel so this was a good one to end up with. I did just go on paypal and reauthorize the payment to them as I would prefer to resub after a spoiler or at least seeing who they are collaborating with. I have seen some in the past that seem far too young for me.

  12. Be careful with Beautycon. Should you want to cancel you’ll have to rearrange planets. Cancelled in March and was just charged again for May. No replies from customer service for three solid months after many emails.

    • I have read nothing but complaints on that and no help from the company. They where just about to charge me for the year again after recieving only 2 boxes and doesn’t expire until 2017. I’m going to do what others said and put in a blank prepaid card. I’m going to do that for all my cancelled subs that I can’t delete the credit card or online account. I’ve asked some to remove my online they say yes but they are all still there. All you have to do is send your credit card or take your bank the cancel proof and they will do a charge back as it is considered unauthorized. You will get it all back. I have had to do that a few times in the past. Email is sufficient proof they may just ask you for dates of email and date of cancellation That’s what happened with me.

    • I went into my account and deleted my credit card info. Today I got an email saying that they would not be sending a summer box because there was a problem processing payment. So I guess that tactic works if they won’t let you cancel.

      Thank goodness because the summer box sounds just awful.

  13. Hmmm. So very tempting. I wonder how long I will resist.
    I haven’t gotten any higher price point boxes, but I may try this one. Especially since it’s not monthly. Commence justification.

  14. I enjoyed this box I just wish it was a coupon rather than a discount and I wish she had put a personalized keepsake in the box as well….just a little something that embodied her personality. I don’t think the discount embodied her as the store doesn’t even open until July. Whether or not you liked Bunny’s gift card that store screamed Bunny lol

  15. I really am liking this sub just wished I had read more about their customer service or lacking thereof. I really like the fact that the items are mostly full sized and I think the value is very good. I keep the items I like and gift to my neice the rest. To be honest I liked their last box better but this one was good. I will say they pack their boxes very well and it feels like opening a present. Kinda wish they had a fun item or two included- last month had a scary looking doll keychain but I liked the idea of it.
    All subs out there need to have an easy way to cancel their boxes like an unsub button on your account instead of making you email them.

  16. Any promo codes for this box? Looks good can’t wait to try!

    • My daughter got it it’s really great! I’m getting it now.

  17. I for sure won’t use the brow product or the nyx product in peaches and cream. Other than that, looks like a good box!

  18. Funny thing – I got a shipping notice for this box. But I canceled after the last one and it was within their ridiculous 7 day period. I have a confirmation email from them that my account was canceled. But they charged me anyway. 2 days since I emailed them and no response. I’d be very wary of this company. Once I get the refund I’m demanding I’m putting a fake credit card number expiration on the site – since I can’t remove my payment info. Again, I’d be wary.

    • Same exact thing happened to me! When you log into my account it even shows cancelled. And they still charged me. And no one is answering my emails!

      • Great. I just noticed this too. But their site won’t load so I can’t look into it.

    • Same thing here, exactly! I emailed them before the box shipped to get a refund but while they were busy not responding to me, the box did ship. I immediately deauthorized them from my paypal so they can’t do that to me again but figured I would just swap the box when it arrived because it seems like from what others say it’s just going to be too much of a hassle to fight them. Of course, now the tracking number says the box was damaged in shipping and is being returned to the sender.. so will I get anything at all? Who knows. All I know is this company is putting the CON in Beautycon.

    • Same thing happened to me. I removed my billing and shipping address and told
      Them I would file a dispute with my cc company if they didn’t fix it. They finally did.

  19. Holy cow another f#cking sea salt spray and waterproof mascara?!? How original. I really hope this box doesn’t show up at my door. They make it almost impossible to cancel so I went into my account with them and deleted my credit card info and neglected to enter a new one. We’ll see if that worked.

  20. Their site seems to be down 🙁 I sooo want this

    • You’ll get it. This box won’t sell out right away, they usually don’t 🙂

  21. OMG I want this and so don’t need it. Super tempting. This is such a good deal!! The contour brush alone would make it worth it. But I already have way too many beauty products, including brushes

  22. I KNEW it was going to be the smashbox brow powder and no one agreed with me ahaha. Everyone else thought it was liquid eyeliner

  23. Wow looks good. Im so excited!

    • It really IS their heaviest & most value packed box, huh? That video got me, I just cant waitttttttt

  24. Have I moved to an alternate realm where all hair products have been replaced by sea salt spray? No gel, no scrunch, no {gasp} hairspray? All sea salt… All the time.
    The rest of the box looks good, though ?

    • I agree what’s with the sea salt spray?? I have curly hair, I don’t need that stuff, and I’ve gotten in my Birchbox a ton.

      • It’s right in line with the “beachy waves/curls” look that mostly look likes a head of hair in need of a brushing. I guess the sea salt sprays holds a look I can get by sleeping with damp hair. I’d like to see a more original hair product or a really good staple

    • Yup. Everyone’s getting sea salt spray from me for the holidays. I’ve gotten quite a few. Rest of the box looks good.

      • Ahahahhaha!!!!!

      • Now that’s funny and I should do it too only problem all my kids are boys ,oh well I hope they enjoy
