  1. Just signed up for a second subscription with enough variation to cover all realm of skin concerns etc broken into two accounts since I assume we shall keep having 4 variations a month. If not, it will be doubled up on things I usually want another to give to my sister or want another for myself in smaller size anyhow for $10 a month.

  2. I resubcribed last month mid month. I canceled and skipped a month. I’ve noticed they open it mid month. I didn’t get last months.

  3. Can you get the 3 free samples when you subscribe? lol

  4. Congrats to the people who are finally getting it But let me say I am on my 4th month and every single bag I open I think “Why was I so excited for this?”. I haven’t received anything that has wowed me. I will keep because it is inexpensive and I keep hoping there will be something awesome soon.

  5. Does anyone know when we will get our first box? Finally got to sign up. No email either after being on wait list for a long time. Hope i get nov box for the glam glow sample ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I believe they start you with the following month (so if you sign up in November, December’s will be your first box).

  6. Shoutout to MSA I’m IN!!!!!!!!!!!!! ??

    I do agree with everyone above about not being notified after signing up for the waitinglist, like what’s the point. Had it not been for this post I would not have Known!!!

    Thanks ALOT guys!!!

    • I actually did receive an email that said more subscriptions were available ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  7. I’m in. I subbed for a month or two over the summer and felt a little overwhelmed with tiny samples, but now that I’m done with Birchbox I can make room for more!

  8. It’s because I canceled today! Lol, you’re welcome! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I’m totally kidding)

    I did cancel today. The products are okay, but I never used any of them. I just have so much beauty stuff from boxes, and I’m a VIB Rouge with them. Most of the products they’d sent I’d already received as promos with orders. I’ve been a member since the concept was first opened up for beta testing though. Maybe I just need a break.

    Congrats to everyone that will finally be able to try it out! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Same here lol. I am sick to death of the crap they keep sending me. They have decades of my sales records as a Rouge member, plus the survey they had me fill out, and they send me literally nothing I would EVER consider trying or buying. I have tried no more than 3 items I have received, and have resold them on a makeup exchange forum every month. What’s the point of keeping it if they won’t utilize their records to allow customization? They have literally every brand at their fingertips to get any sample they want.

    • Hee hee! That’s just what I was going to write. I also cancelled today. I’m also VIB Rouge and wasn’t getting a lot I was jazzed about. I ended up giving most away to friends, which is nice but kind of a bummer to keep opening box after box and being underwhelmed. That being said, I do like almost all of the fragrance samples they sent.
      I get much more excited about the beauty products in FabFitFun and am considering Look Fantastic to fill my Play! hole.
      Hopefully, the new subscribers will enjoy Play! and be happy with the selections. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • File me with all of you ๐Ÿ™‚ im a VIB Rouge, so a lot of this stuff was repeats. It was a pretty underwhelming sub, so I cancelled also. Love Sephora! Just not the sub! Lol

  9. What is the point of getting on a wait list if they don’t give you priority or notify you when it opens up? I was on the wait list and they never notified me.

    • Yeah I was on the wait list for months, then I finally got in because I saw that it was open on MSA. Then last month I tried to update my credit card info on line and I wasn’t working so I had to call customer service. The women who I talked to over the phone must have been new because she accidentally canceled my subscription and told me I would not be reviving the next months box. I asked to speak to her supervisor and they told me they had made a mistake and could not fix it, and that I would have to go back on the wait list, even though it was their mistake. They said they would send an email when a spot opened back up. No email was sent to me but I was able to sing up because of this post. But because of all the hassle I should have just been done with it.

  10. I got signed up! Yay for me!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Thank you, thank you, thank you Liz!!! Finally was able to sign up thanks to your notice ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Woo hoo!! ?

  12. Nice! Thank you for this post, Liz! I has been on their waitlist for a couple of months, but thanks to you, I was able to subscribe this evening ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I’d like to try this, but they seem to be having major problems with their system. People are being canceled randomly and customer service seems awful. Maybe I’ll try the next time the waitlist opens – if they fix things.

  14. THANK YOU so much!! I’ve been trying to subscribe since June and was on their email alert list, though I never got an email. Now, fingers crossed that I like it and it’s not a disappointment.

  15. Thank you ! I had a rough month in September and was dropped. Now I’m back in ! Yay !

  16. I so wish they would open this to Canadian customers. I would pay the shipping.

    • You can sign up for a subscription and use my address and just e-mail my a prepaid postage label each month if you want. I’m on the swap site.

    • My sis and I opened up US postal boxes and had them ship them there. The site will take Canadian credit cards, we just created a new account with Sephora and used a new email address than our Canadian accounts. Totally worked and we just drive down to the po box once they notify us that we have a package. So if you’re close to the border than it’s easier than you think and we’ve had no issues with our shipments.

    • I wish they would open this to Canadians too! Driving to the boarder to pick up mail is not really an option for me, but I would pay shipping to get this box!

  17. lol – love that gif!
    Was just talking to my best friend about that episode the other day!
