Panty by Post SAMPLEPANTY Promotion

Delivery packaging:
My Panty by Post deal has arrived! After being able to experience my first Panty by Post through one of the beauty sample box subscriptions (Luxe Box April 2012 Review), Panty by Post had also sent out an email in celebration of Mother's Day where for new customers only, the 1 Single Panty package can be purchased for a total of $10 (no tax and no shipping fee) by entering in the promo code SAMPLEPANTY. The packaging for delivery is oh so pretty, in a pretty flat cardboard envelope, with a white and grey floral motif going on.

Julep May 2012 Cinco de Mayo Mystery Box

Delivery packaging:
My Julep Cinco de Mayo Mystery Box has arrived! The delivery box that it arrives in is a bit different than the usual ones. Whereas the monthly Julep Maven boxes and the Julep April 2012 Spring Mystery Box are normally delivered in a square black Julep cardboard box with Julep printed in white, this box comes reversed in a white rectangular box with black Julep printed on the side.

Topbox May 2012 Review

Delivery packaging:
Topbox May 2012 had arrived on the exact same day as Glymm did! I don't know if it's because Glymm was faster or that Topbox was just slower, but either way, no complaints here. The delivery packaging has not changed for Topbox. It is still being delivered by CanadaPost with tracking and arrives in the familiar Topbox cylinder tube shape, wrapped up in brown packaging paper.

Glymm Box May 2012 Review

Delivery packaging:
Glymm Box May 2012 arrived on the same day as Topbox May 2012 did! Normally Topbox is the 2nd box to arrive after Julep, so it's pretty good timing for Glymm, unless it's because Topbox slowed down this month. Either way, 2 surprises in one day, YAY! Glymm's delivery packaging changed this month. Whereas last month it was white cardboard with pink Glymm on it, for May, it was a white cardboard box with orange Glymm on it. As well, usually there's a red FRAGILE sticker sealing the box and this month they used a black sticker with yellow Glymm on it to seal. I suppose this means the signature pink cardboard box is gone now, this is the second month in a row so I guess this new white cardboard box is here to stay.

TAG! Get to Know Me

Samantha from nailartcouture tagged me and although I'm really not into these things, I figured that doing some is better than none so I've decided to partially participate. I don't mind being tagged and answering questions, but when it comes to continuing it, that's where I become lazy. If you're interested about knowing a little bit more about me, keep on reading...

Luxe Box April 2012 Review

Luxe Box April 2012 has arrived at last! It arrives on the same day as GlossyBox Canada April 2012. Not the greatest since that means they BOTH were the last beauty sample box monthly subscriptions to arrive and that they barely made it to be within the month of April! CanadaPost with tracking is the delivery method used where the Luxe Box is delivered in the familiar brown cardboard box, with a flip open lid that has "Loose Button" and website around its sides. Luxe Box has never really been the quickest of the bunch but slowly it seems to be taking longer to arrive. I'm assuming this is due to them shipping out later.

Julep May 2012 Review

Delivery Packaging:
Julep May 2012 Box (American Beauty) has arrived and I have to say, I absolutely LOVE the shipping from Julep! Shipping has been consistent from Julep, where they arrive in the beginning of the month and it is just SO speedy! While Julep is shipped from the USA to Canada, it's shipping time beats out the Canadian sample beauty box companies hands down. Yes, Julep has the advantage of the products being of their own brand so they do not have to wait on other suppliers but I think it evens out when taking into consideration that they are shipped from outside of Canada. For May, the box that Julep shipped the products in looked a bit different from usual. Whereas normally it's shipped in a square cube box, this time  it has arrived in a rectangular box. Other than that, everything else is the same where it's still the signature black cardboard box with the Julep name and brand on its side.

GlossyBox Canada April 2012 Review

GlossyBox Canada April 2012 has finally arrived! For April, both GlossyBox and Luxe Box had arrived at the same time. Unfortunately, this is NOT a something to brag about. Both of these boxes arrived on the LAST day of the month, barely making it a April box any longer. With last month's (March 2012) GlossyBox also having arriving very late at the end of the month, I wonder if this is late delivery is going to happen consistently? Whereas last month GlossyBox had kept subscribers up-to-date in regards to the delivery situation and had offered 250 GlossyDots as an apology and token of appreciation and loyalty, for this month, no such offer was made. As usual, the method of delivery used was CanadaPost. Though surprisingly, unlike last month's GlossyBox, no shipping email or tracking was sent to me informing me of its delivery. Good news is that the delivery box is still lovely, with pastel pink GlossyBox logos all over the  dark chocolate brown rectangular cardboard box. I still do love opening the delivery box and seeing the smooth pale pink box with black GlossyBox logo in the centre of the top lid, just waiting to be opened.
