#MSA01 Quarterly Box Hints

Liz Cadman
ByLiz CadmanSep 17, 2014 | 179 comments

MSA Quarterly Box Ships Thursday + Updates

Well, lesson learned – I won’t do a “MSA Boxes shipping today” post again! I’m still trying to learn everything about the Quarterly shipping process, but now we know the boxes arrived at USPS yesterday, so they will start to arrive at their destinations over the next few days.

I know some you have been asking for spoilers to make up for the wait, and then there are some who still want to be surprised, so I’m thinking a good compromise is a little hint about the box contents without giving away any more specific items.

Here we go…

The #MSA01 box will have 5 items total (no filler items like a snack bar or anything like that), and the total value is more than $100.

I really hope you like it! But either way I want to know your feedback! I’ll be watching for #MSA01 on social media, and you can always comment here or send me an email too. (liz @ mysubscriptionaddiction.com)

Also, I’ll be doing posts about the process of building the box and working with the different brands featured, and I’d love to answer any questions you have about any of it!

It’s in Pittsburgh!!! Hopefully I will be receiving the box tomorrow or Wednesday. I can’t wait to see the scarf and try everything out.

Mallory

Got my box today and I love it and the fall theme! It actually made me happy it’s only supposed to be 60 degrees in pittsburgh today 🙂

Liz Cadman

Yay – woo for Pittsburgh! 🙂

Alyssa

Liz – this box was incredible and I LOVED every item. I get a LOT of boxes and in terms of quality and curation this one is one of the best I have ever received. I’m going to gift a couple of the items simply because I cannot use them (I sooo want to but I live in Arizona so one isn’t practical for me, and my husband hates the smell of one of them, even though I love it), but I am so so excited to give them because I know they will be incredibly well received by my sisters. This is the perfect fall box for sub box addicts and I really appreciate that you included the prices on your letter as well. Nice job – can’t wait for the next one! I’m seriously considering buying a couple so that I will be able to gift some items and keep others for myself 🙂 🙂

I received your box on Friday. Loved the combination of products you chose! I have never tried any of these before.

It is clear the box was curated by someone who knows what she is doing and really cares. Most impressed. It is the perfect fall box. So excited for your next shipment!

Liz Cadman

Thank you so much!! I hope you love all the products! 🙂

PA Anna

Still no box. I did receive Arianna Huffington today so maybe tomorrow is the day.

Hannah

Is anyone else having trouble with the coupon code on Fig & Yarrow? I really want to buy more scrub!

Kathy

What a great box! This is exactly the box that other subscriptions (hello FFF) seem to have been shooting for, and failing. Not a stinker in sight; it’s all amazing! Where can we go to see what the other color options were?

Liz Cadman

Thank you! I’ll be posting my review/reveal hopefully tomorrow and I’ll include a photo of each variation.

PA Anna

I hope you are still planning to do this. I don’t know why it takes me forever to receive a Quarterly box. I already read the spoilers, my sister called me about her box, and I am eager to read your reveal/review.

Paula

Wow!! Amazing box! I recieve a lot of nice boxes and my hope when I signed up for this one was that it would be an excellently curated box. You did not disappoint! This is plain and simple the most cohesive box I have ever recieved. The products are all lovely. Honestly felt like a gift that a friend would put together for her best friend. I recieved the scarf in navy, my favorite color 🙂 so I am glad about that. I will mention that I am subscribed to 8 box subscriptions including Nina Garcia’s and your box is simply the best curated box I have ever recieved. Thank you so much. Can not wait for the next one, lol.

Liz Cadman

Thank you!!! I’m so happy it felt like opening a gift! 🙂

Tracy

Gah! Still don’t have my box and I was trying not to peek at spoilers, but everyone’s great reactions to the box have me soooo excited! Happy to know I am not the only one that has a box seemingly lost in Compton on the tracking website 🙂 Crossing my fingers for a early Monday delivery!!!

Lana

I don’t want to give too much away…but I loved ALL of it. I got it today, and I have already used all of the items (including one I have one right now at work 😉 ). If this is a sign of things to come, I’m thrilled. I thought I’d be bummed there were only 5 items…I couldn’t be more wrong. 5 quality items is SO much better than filler I don’t need. Definitely gonna stay a subscriber for this one!

Liz Cadman

Thanks Lana! I will always go for quality over quantity! 🙂

Amy

Tonight I got my boys into a bath and told them it would be a ‘luxury spa’ experience. They are 5 and 7 and old enough to appreciate the finer things in life. i dimmed the lights, lit the chai candle, and gave them each a few dollops of the scrub to apply / play with. they felt so special. and to nuzzle into the smell of cardamom when they finally had on their jammys…well, might just be a memory i’ll never forget. thank you, liz!!!

Liz Cadman

Aw – that is so wonderful! I’m so touched that my box got to be a part of that memory! 🙂

Cindy

My box came unexpectedly today. It left Compton and then …… just arrived without further ado or warning. Glad of that! I really liked the items you selected. Red and blue are my two favorite colors and that’s the color I received! I was taken aback a little about the scrub when I opened it. It seemed so dry. But I had to try it out on my hands immediately. Even though the consistency appears totally dry, my hands were quite moistened with some ingredient that was emmolient and my hands feel great now! I do wish that the delicate skin formulation had been chosen for the Tatcha; I think that would have suited everyone, not just those with some sensitivity. As for the gloss, it is a very nice gloss. I did get a color that looks great on me! All in all, a fantastic box. I did not mention the last item, but it smells divine!

Love it!

Liz Cadman

Thanks for the feedback Cindy! I’ll keep the sensitive skin consideration in mind for future boxes!

Naudia

Just received my box today and I am beyond thrilled, Liz you have outdone yourself! Without any doubt this is the best box that I have ever received. I love absolutely everything in it and can’t wait for the next one. So happy for you, this is truly a box amongst boxes.

Liz Cadman

OMG – thank you! I’m thrilled you love it! 🙂

Vianny

So I went to Google and search unboxing of your box and OMG I am so jealous of everybody gotten the opportunity to get your first box. Liz you did awesome the whole box is fantastic, may this box be the first to an amazing success.

Now to wait patiently for the second, that one and the rest I wont miss 🙂

amy

thank you liz. this box is amazing. stupendous. high-value. way to send love our way.

Liz Cadman

Aw thank you so much! 🙂

Tara B

OMG!!!! Where is my BOX!!!! lol… I cant take it! I live in Texas… Not the moon. Tracking said it left CA, on the 17… Nothing after that. I am so upset. I will have to wait till Monday I guess. 🙁

Lesley

I was excited to receive my box today! I already knew what was in it since I am a spoiler sucker! I also really enjoyed the box. The scarf was really pretty (navy&red), but I am just not an infinity scarf girl…..too big wrapped once……too close wrapped twice….so I put that up for trade. The candle smells amazing and I already have it out to enjoy. I am very excited to read about the rice cleanser and can’t wait to try it! The juice lips gloss is the same color that I got recently from another box…champagne..luckily that is a staple neutral color that goes with anything….The coffee scrub I was certain that I would end up swapping or giving to my sister because I do not like coffee or the way it smells. When the box came I read all the ingredients and was really torn…everything else sounded wonderful….so I decided to give it a try, figuring I could always pass it along to my sister if it didn’t work for me. I have tried lots of sugar and salt scrubs in the past….and I like them, but they definately leave a residue on my hands even after rinsing. Well this was fantastic. I tried it on my hands, massaging it in for a few minutes and then rinsing, and my hands are so soft! So soft like I have just had a mani, but there is zero residue on my hands. I still don’t love the smell of coffee but now I can’t wait to try this in the shower! This is my favorite thing about a good subscription box….not just getting a collection of “stuff” for less than retail, but to be able to be presented with something that may be out of my comfort zone, and then end up with something that you really love! Can’t wait to give the face cleanser a go tomorrow!

Liz Cadman

Yay – I’m so glad you like the scrub! They also have some versions in citrus scents… 🙂

PA Anna

Still no box 🙁 My sister, who lives 1.5 hours EAST of me in the country and in the same state, received hers today.

Cori

Liz, I loved the box. I can’t wait to try almost everything in it. (The one exception is the lip gloss as I am allergic to sesame and it is the first ingredient. However even that, I’m excited to pass off to a friend to try it as it looks awesome.)

It is a beautiful box and the care you placed into it is obvious. Thank you so much for the time you took to make this box awesome. The chai latte is wonderful and I can’t wait to try the cleanser as I have sensitive skin and have been wondering about this brand lately.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and get to read many rave reviews. I’m certainly happy. (Also, looking forward to your next box.)

–Cori

Liz Cadman

Thanks so much Cori! I’m so glad the time put into this box shows – that means a lot to me!

Gabby

Liz, the spoilers for this box look amazing!! I just signed up for the next one, yay! 🙂

Liz Cadman

Thanks Gabby! We’re working on the next box items right now! 🙂

Ginger

I’m blown away by your first box! I love it all!!

Liz Cadman

Yay! Thank you! 🙂

Susan

Liz, you should advertise this as “the subscription box with class.” 🙂

Liz Cadman

Aw thanks! I like it! 🙂

Susan

Liz, i just opened my box. So beautiful!!! Keep up the good work.

Liz Cadman

Thanks Susan! Will do my best to make the next box even better!

Tacie

Wow, just wow! This is the absolute best (and most useful) subscription box I have ever received Liz! I read the letter first. As I read each item I exclaimed, “I need something like that now!” and this sort of yipee sound was going off in my head. Geez, I hope I don’t sound crazy. It’s only when I got to the last actual item in the list that I though, “Oh I already have so many.” You said it’s your favorite brand of this item ever, so I’m still gonna give it a go. It has to be good. I also appreciate how the items are organic and cruelty-free.
The prices listed are ones I would pay for a quality product. This means I can actually continue to purchase any of these items if they work for me., which I’m anticipating they will. Kudos on the packaging as well, Liz. Everything arrived in perfect condition and it was fun to unwrap items individually. The tape used for the item listed on page three of the letter was so tough that it peeled my Julep polish right off a nail while wrestling with it. Don’t ask why I didn’t use the box cutter sitting right next to me. I don’t know. lol
I was thinking I would cancel after the first box due to price, but darn you! Such a practical, yet indulgent box sings to my inner shopper. I will make sure I’m signed up for life. These other boxes got nothing on you babe, nothing! Congratulations on such a success. I hope this means great things for you. Now I’m headed to over Quarterly’s site to make sure I’ve got the continual subscription.

Liz Cadman

Thank you so much Tacie! I’m thrilled you loved the box. I was going for items that were both practical and indulgent just like you mentioned! 🙂

Theresa Edge

Aghhh! I knew I should’ve signed up for this one! Just seeing this as they go up to be listed in the swap site and I want it all! Hahah, just signed up for November. Better late than never!
