Does anyone else subscribe or thinking of getting the Spring box?

Customisation opens tomorrow and I wondered whether any other MNetters were up for discussing!

I got it but didn’t customise and didn’t rate it

BunnytheBlueWhale Sat 01-Feb-20 16:10:48

So not getting it this time @Holdingtherope?

I have had two now and they were great

Customisation will make a difference especially if you’re a select member and can customise most of the box

Do you have to pay before customising? I don’t want to risk it!

BunnytheBlueWhale Sat 01-Feb-20 16:15:45

Well now they’ve realised what is going to be available so you could check the fab fit fun spring 2020 spoilers out first

I signed up for a year anyway so hoping for the best 🤣

How have you customised already and rate it when it hasn't opened yet (2nd) and it's shipping yet, is it a press box?

I've been subscribed for a year and happy enough to renew for another year. I'm impressed they ship to the UK for $10 and cover the taxes. I got one of the very first boxes to the UK and was charged over £30 taxes so very relieved they changed that.

Also I've used most things from the boxes and found them useful. It's a treat to myself. I loved the Winter box, lovely blanket and also the add on sales are cheap. I've added Pixi Glow to my Spring box for $7!

BunnytheBlueWhale Sat 01-Feb-20 21:24:54

@Itsabeautifuldaytosavelives I don’t think anyone has said they’ve customised the spring 2020 box yet as it opens tomorrow

I like it too and think it’s a nice treat. I love the blanket. Snuggled in it now in front of Love Island!

Some good things in add ons but hard not to go crazy. I’m trying not to buy beauty products but tempted by then Hanskin hylauranic and also want the bamboo pillow, trinket bowls and maybe the invisibobbles

I take it you are a Greys / McDreamy fan?

@holdingtherope said they got the box already.

I take back all I said about the box....went to customise and Elmis and Ciate out of stock already, customisations only opened this evening for annual members, will be thinking about resubscribing but these boxes are always hit or miss I suppose

Itsabeautifuldaytosavelives123 Sun 02-Feb-20 21:16:58

@BunnytheBlueWhale yes Greys fan, but also what I do for work 😀

pelirocco123 Sun 02-Feb-20 21:19:11

I paid for year up front so get to customise..i love the boxes the items are great

BunnytheBlueWhale Sun 02-Feb-20 21:39:24

@Itsabeautifuldaytosavelives123 Oh lovely

What was the ciate thing? Everything was in stock when I went on but it was round about 5pm when customisation had just opened. I’m fact (tip for later) they often open customisation a bit before the advertised time to avoid the rush.

What did you go for then?

What annoys me is there are quite a few things that are not available to UK subscribers and also there seems to be the best things in category 1 and maybe 2 and then further along I’m not sure I want any of them.

There’s also been some controversy this time as the final three items used to be the same for everyone but now there are variations but FFF pick them.

@pelirocco123 I’m annual too, as I think is @itsabeautufulday

What did you go for?

I’ve chosen:

1 Cardigan & led light
2 packing cubes
3 Space mask
4 Body oil
5 Skindinavia spray

To be fair I’m excited about all but number 4, which didn’t have anything I really wanted (but again there seemed to be more choices for US subscribers)

I think it’s worth the money for £40

I’m just trying not to go mad in add ons!

Oh the Ciate eyeliner 🤦‍♀️

Itsabeautifuldaytosavelives123 Mon 03-Feb-20 16:00:44

I went back in via the app today and managed to change to items that were previously listed as sold out. Went for:

Elemis Night Cream (think I'll add the cardi, just checked and it's allowing me to do this)
111Skin Radiance Booster
Gravity Sleep Mask
Hair Brush
Ciate liquid liner.

Think I'll be happy with it now I've been able to change it, would otherwise have been disappointing. It's excellent value for the brands.

BunnytheBlueWhale Mon 03-Feb-20 16:24:16

Good choices

I’m not 100% sure about the anti aging light. Wondering whether it’s a bit of a gimmick but feel like it’s worth a go for the price 😬🤔

OP’s posts: |
Itsabeautifuldaytosavelives123 Mon 03-Feb-20 17:54:41

I wondered the same, but worth a go for the price to be honest, it's not going to be a huge waste of money either way. Quite fancied the packing cubes too but I had just ordered some off amazon last week envy

BunnytheBlueWhale Mon 03-Feb-20 18:31:57

Oh see I’ve been wanting some packing cubes so it was good timing!

Hoping the cardigan isn’t like a bath robe although that’s kinda how they sold it 😂

Oh god you are all convincing me. Please tell me what you got last month?

How much is it? I can’t work it out?

£80 to subscribe then £50 a quarter?

BunnytheBlueWhale Tue 04-Feb-20 20:15:49

I think it’s about £50 a quarter isn’t it?

I got a deal and got an annual membership for $180 all in I think

Joined! I think the key is in customisation, I wanted packing cubes anyway so that already makes the first box worth it.

I picked the coatigan, packing cubes, gravity mask and primer.

Do you get other stuff as well?!

Can’t wait.

What did you order?

BunnytheBlueWhale Wed 05-Feb-20 10:57:20

@Holdingtherope 🥳

I’ve ordered similar to you

1 Cardigan & led light
2 packing cubes
3 Space mask
4 Body oil
5 Skindinavia spray

(If you are annual you can customise 5 items but if you order one box you can customise fewer categories) but you get min 8 items in total.

I ordered a pillow and Hanskin hyaloronic acid from the add ons

Don’t forget to check out the add ons!

Wonder when it will come? I’m so excited!!

InterestedinOthersViews Sun 09-Feb-20 12:05:36

Beginning of March? I can’t remember when the last one came

Holdingtherope Mon 17-Feb-20 14:31:40

Box arrived! Not long after it said it was shipped so really quick actually. Love everything in it! So worth the customising! I am so happy!
