  1. Hey ladies,

    I posted a Beginner swap tutorial on the forum today! Hope it will be helpful for you to get started with swapping, click on my name (top left of this comment) to see the post =) . Happy swapping!

  2. Swaps will be different now that Popsugar is doing only 4 boxes a year vs 16! Most of the top 10 are theirs.

  3. It’s so funny that the Sunday Riley is number 1 on the list. I had put that up for swap and was amazed at how many swap requests I had gotten for it in such a short period of time! I ended up getting a super cute gold plated necklace that says “dream” on it, along with a few little other things. I absolutely adore swapping and I am so impressed that it’s so well thought out and put together, that part of this site. I really really appreciate that we all get to use it for free, this whole website is so fun and useful!!!!

  4. I have always viewed the swaps as items people did not want so they put them up for swap. I see a lot of the same items and often a lot from one box. Often not sure why they buy the boxes.

  5. I am on the waitlist to swap because i finally decided to join after 2+ years on this site and I have quite a bit of stuff from subscribing to multiple boxes for that long (including 3 of these items on here) but I am super intimidated to tell you the truth because I have no clue what to swap for or even how to go about doing it. I see so many thing I want and have quite a few things to swap that I think ppl would want but after going into the forums this week I realized I am completely in over my head. Maybe when the rules Liz and Chris are working on are posted (I think next week from what I read last night in the swap forum) it might be a little more clear and less intimidating. I need a swapping for dummies book, lol.

    • Don’t let it intimate ate you. It’s fun. If you see something you want just start the swap. You can add other items that you want from that same person. Just jump in with both feet after listing your items.

      • Thanks so much, Liz!

  6. Just finished the Sunday Riley serum. You’re not missing a thing. It’s only a somewhat-greasy moisturizer, and doesn’t brighten at all. Try Ole Henriksen’s vitamin C truth serum instead.

    • Im loving the serum 🙃 but i prefer to keep my face extra moisturized to ward off wrinkles 😀 and im only like 1/5th down at most…but maybe i use less, just 1-2 pumps because i follow with facial oil and cream moisturizer. My skin has been looking extra nice, and i might say more even in tone (i had some spots that i dont notice now), idk what it is though….id mostly attribute it to sticking to a healthier diet since the new year 🤷‍♀️…but i know if i stop using all these products, patchy dryness and wrinkles start to creep up quick! Sooo greatful for sub boxes to stay stocked up!

    • Did anyone experience any breakouts? I have combo skin and am not particularly sensitive, but started to breakout around my mouth/chin area after using it for a few days. It seems a common experience from reading the low ratings on Sephora.

      • YES, only on my chin. I’ve been using it twice a day since the 25th and my skin looks great… except the chin breakout. I’ve decided to skip my chin and use it on the rest of my face.

      • Yes I got little red bumps on my temples the first 2 times I used it but then it seem to quit. I am not getting the hype for this product at all. I see no notable difference at all and had I bought and paid full price I would return. It’s nothing special.

    • I did actually try Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum and while it smells amazing like the Sunday Riley CEO one, neither seem more beneficial than the other. I’ve been buying organic serums. I received the Sunday Riley one from Allure. Again, smells great, a little greasy and gave me a couple of pimples (I never break out). The Ole Henriksen one is sticky. I don’t know. Guess I’m over the craze of expensive serums. 😉 I bought an awesome Rosehip serum someone made in an Etsy shop and that is far more superior than these.

  7. I unfortunately don’t know how to swap 😔 I’m in the site and not waitlisted anymore but I’m totally confused about how to do it

    • Me too! That’s what’s stopping me from swapping all the items I’ve been holding onto!

      • That’s funny dear! I just made my night ☺️ Thanks for being honest and showing me I’m not the only one! They really need a tutorial video miss Liz I hope ur reading on this comment on exactly how to swap and how to work that dang site! Lol 😂 because I’m lost and have given up on swapping because it is impossible and need a tutorial as I am positive I’m not the only one

        • I agree. They need some directions how on how to do that. It’s confusing. I tried a few times and it didn’t work.

      • How do you get into the swap? Or on the waitlist? I have plenty of stuff to swap!! Thanks!

      • If you click the top of your swap page and copy the link then add it to the “website” option in comments you’ll link your swap page so people can request from you. If you’re not sure how to list items you can do a search for them once your on the swap page and just hit “list item” 🙂

  8. I also see the bracelet multiple times…it is interesting because I have most of these items up for swap and they have either not been requested or only requested once.

    • How do you get into the swap? Or on the waitlist? I have plenty of stuff to swap!! Thanks!

  9. People really love that Bracelet

  10. Is it my computer or is the Kendra Scott bracelet showing like 5 different times?

    • Yep! Definitely showed up on almost every item. I was pretty confused at first. 🙂

    • My phone is doing the same

    • Sorry! I just fixed it!
