  1. Love Juice Beauty!

    • I received a yoga mat that was slippery in a box once.

  2. Super crazy lipstick colors! Hot pink, purple, bright orange.

  3. Some really gross chocolate mint powder drink mix in Birchbox!

    • Ugh. I remember that. It was awful!

    • LOL..I got that in a Sephora Favourites too. I was shocked.

  4. I don’t think I have ever gotten anything unexpected. I only get beauty boxes, so nothing crazy.

  5. I would love to get this. I wanted this box but am afraid to go on the waitlist.

  6. The most surprising thing I’ve seen in a subscription box would be la mer soft cream. I fell in love with it and was so excited to be able to try such a highly rated product I normally would not be able to afford to try.

  7. I never really know what to expect from Mighty Nest, but i’ve found a lot of things cool things that I initially didn’t think I’d like – like i use those metal straws a lot more than I thought I would.

  8. Purse poncho πŸ˜‚

  9. Expired products from BeautyFix. Twice.

    • The most unexpected thing I received in a subscription box was 2 expired beauty products…I was really surprised and dropped the subscription…
      I really enjoy reading MSA and check it out often!

    • You’re right! Because for everything else, I read the spoilers on here, so no surprises. I stopped my subscription to Beautyfix after that incident.

  10. Can’t think of a specific item, however I remember a box costing $42 & the value of the items I received came out to $112. Yeah ! Good luck everyone & thank you for these wonderful giveaways !

  11. Mini donut lip balm from Owlcrate. So much more delicious than I expected!

  12. An entire mystery box I didn’t order. πŸ˜‚

  13. I always love your giveaways and have even recommended the MSA site to a couple of friends to check out!

  14. I can’t really think of anything unexpected, but thanks for the give away & good luck everyone!

  15. Beenigma cream… I had redeemed my points for it with ipsy and then realized it had bee venom in it! Sounds dangerous πŸ˜‰ lol… I ended up LOVING it and now it’s seriously my holy grail product!!!

  16. I haven’t gotten anything surprising.

  17. Purple lipstick

  18. I was surprised at how much I liked the supergoop makeup setting spray that come in a box. Fun when you discover new products that you would repurchase:)

  19. The most unexpected thing(not in a good way) that I’ve received was from Matchbox Mail. The box was indeed the size of a tiny matchbox (I thought it was going to be at least the 4″x2″ size. That wasn’t the worst it, the contents were unimpressive for the $7 cost; a stamp size picture of a flower, a popsicle eraser, a metal star paper clip, a crayon and a clothes pin with a wooden cat attached. Needless to say I promptly cancelled my sub.

  20. I agree…

    The Clearista Gel and other point redemption items (in full and delux sizes) from Ipsy are amazing!

  21. That multi colored scarf in LLB.

  22. Pork rinds. I didn’t expect to see those. πŸ™

  23. The most surprising/unexpected item I have ever received in a subscription box is the upcycled laundry bag from GlobeIn. I love that bag and it surprisingly has made me enjoy doing laundry!

  24. When Walmart sent me two twin boxes

  25. There was a bio testing kit in one of the Quarterly Tim Ferriss boxes…that was a bit bizarre. But for those who are fans of his…and thus getting boxes curated by him, it really wasn’t that surprising.

  26. I cant think of anything unexpectedπŸ€” but here is my comment. 😊

  27. I loved the Clearista gel I redeemed from ipsy point rewards (and that was subsequently included in my most recent glam bag). It was HUGE and worth $70! Score!

    Thanks for the giveaway, by the way! I’m currently waitlisted for Boxycharm and would love to be able to get this box after all. Good luck to everyone!

  28. Nachos. Hands down that was the weirdest thing. Granted, I like nachos, and I ate them happily, but it was not the type of thing you expect to find in a book box.

    • Nachos in a box, that is hilarious and definitely unexpected. I received two random tea bags in a beauty box. Doesn’t even come close to nachos.

  29. I was most excited and surprised with a 1/3 oz sample of Sunday Riley good genes treatment in Play by Sephora!

  30. The most unexpected thing I ever got was one time ipsy accidentally sent me 7 samples…I was confused at first because I know you normally get 5, but when I emailed them they said I could keep them! It was like bonus month for me haha! Way cool!

  31. BeSpoke sent the Thaw box as my mystery box, when I expected it to be a non-sub box with some miscellaneous items from their store. I wasn’t too excited about it, but I think my boyfriend and I will still get some use out of the items.

  32. Hmmmm I’m really not sure if I have ever received anything truely unexpected

  33. Maybe the pillow spray from birchbox — which I ended up really liking!

  34. I love your giveaways, MSA!

    • Thanks, Elena! Good luck! πŸ™‚

  35. A donut print. I’ve got it up for swap if anyone wants it LOL.

  36. Still not sure if or when I’ll need an inflatable swan…

    • I actually love the swan. We take it on vacations and use it to hold drinks in the pool. Also, my daughter can use it as a float.

  37. Thanks for doing thing this. πŸ™‚

  38. I was super excited about the dr.brandt microderm scrub! I received a sample through another sub box and fell in love!

  39. It’s always surprising to me some of the stuff companies put in boxes that they think anyone would ever want, like a cheap cardboard bingo set! Of which I have 3 btw!

  40. I am always (pleasantly) surprised when subscription boxes like fabfitfun and Rachel Zoe include popular, name brand products that I can buy at Sephora.

  41. The plush baby alien with the rubber band so you could put it around your face/head has to be the most unexpected thing I’ve gotten. Still have it, debating putting up for swaps or letting the pups play with it. Decisions, decisions! Thanks for the giveaway!

  42. I would love to get one for my sister!

  43. Yeah! Love reading your blog… I’m going to say coloring books, I just can’t get into the whole adults coloring thing… I have too much to do!

    • I think I have to agree with you with the coloring books being the most surprising unexpected thing.

  44. Has to be the sex paint kit from robb vices. I appreciate the curating but it wasn’t for me!

  45. I received a toothbrush and bleach in the same box once from pijon

  46. My fingers are defintely crossed for this amazing giveaway!!

  47. Another fabulous opportunity! Thank you so very much. Between Galentine’s day and the weekend giveaways you spoil us. We appreciate all the hard work. This box looks fantastic,

  48. Lol…I am never surprised because I always peek at the spoilers at MSA! Most unexpected goes to anything in the mystery box of awesome- they definitely send some strange stuff!

  49. The most unusual item I’ve received in a subscription box was those stick-on nipple covers. I was glad to see comments that some ladies actually liked them so I could swap them, but have to say…. they were not for me!

    • I think I agree with you, one of the odder items I’ve ever gotten too!

  50. A short, white lace dress, suitable for a wedding, from Modcloth’s stylish surprise. I still need to put it up for swap, I’m an old married lady! πŸ™‚
