  1. Thank you for this update! Is this a one time thing? Or will a beauty box be available every month?

    1. Sorry, I tried to make that clear at the top of my post, but yes, this is a one-off box. I do not believe this will be available every month, just like with their other beauty boxes they've offered from time to time. But if this is a hit, I wouldn't be surprised if they offer another soon, and perhaps make it a regular thing!

  2. What a nice deal for Prime members! I feel like Amazon is becoming very exclusive, in a bad way, in order to push people to buy Prime. I'm hearing about a lot of products that will be available only to Prime Members. Oh well, I'm not included. Again, very nice for those who are included!

    1. Well if it makes you feel any better, this is the ONLY beauty offer they've ever done that has been Prime-exclusive (to my knowledge), and they've done several over the past six months or so, open to everyone. So fingers crossed that the next one is not exclusive! So sorry that you couldn't take advantage of this one! :(

    2. Oh, it's fine, no biggie for me! And I am glad for others! I just happen to see in the news this morning that Amazon is going to be offering other new types of goods, but only to Prime Members. Just noticed a trend (maybe) starting. But...that's a whole other discussion apart from beauty! I hope lots of folks get to take advantage of this. 😊

    3. I don't think this is much different from the deals that are offered for VIB and VIB Rogue. Amazon gives free trial months of Prime and they have a satisfaction guarantee where you can get your money back if you find that Prime doesn't work for you. Plus, it's not like you don't get a load of benefits for actually having Prime that have nothing to do with awesome little bonus boxes. So really, not exclusive in the least.

    4. I wish I had the budget for Prime, but it doesn't make fiscal sense for my situation. Sometimes, our family has to make choices, and the benefits for us wouldn't justify the price. But, like I said, it's really not a big source of concern to me. It was more of an observation, not trying to bash anyone! Apologies if it came across as rude.

    5. Susie, no offense taken! :) Have you considered just signing up for the free 30 day trial? You can cancel before you're billed. Hope that helps!


    6. And I'm so sorry for calling you Susie! That's one of best friend's names so it basically typed itself! ;)

    7. No worries! I basically let people call me whatever form of Susan they wish...lol. Yes, I've thought about doing the free trial, but I have to admit to myself that I don't think we would personally benefit enough to justify keeping it. There are just so many other things I want to use the money for! So, I just never bother signing up. It's really no biggie, though! 😊 I'm so glad that many others will be able to enjoy this!

  3. Do you know what products we can redeem the credit on?

    1. UPDATE!! here's the list of qualifying items:


      (Thank you, Aubrey, for that!)

  4. I've always wanted some sort of beauty box, and this is a great way to purchase a full-size of Fekkai hair care. Thanks G!!!

  5. There is a link underneath where you purchase the box that shows what you can use the credit for: http://www.amazon.com/b?node=14210367011

    1. Thank you, Aubrey!! I just updated my post (how did I not see that when I viewed that page like 5 times??) Lol! :)

  6. Thanks G! Amazon is offering 9 different boxes! YAY! They vary between a Cookie Box, an Energy Drink Box, a Suds Box but they also have the Women’s Skin & Oral Care Beauty Sample Box for $14.99 here:


    1. Thank you so much, Marcy!!! I just did a blog spot with links to all that are still in stock:


      You ROCK!!!! (Once again!) xoxo

  7. I'm not Prime, so thank goodness I don't want this box. Way too many products I already have a huge backlog of (mascaras especially!). Thanks for the tip though, G. You're always on top of it!

  8. Ordered! Thanks for the info!

  9. Shows sold out for me. 7:47 pm PST.

  10. I just posted a video on this amazon box, and I included your blog in the description box! Thank you! <3
