I found out the news earlier that Carmine & GLOSSYBOX are to join forces starting from next month. From what I have read Carmine will be stopping their beauty box subscription service immediately and there shall be no March box with no explanation as to why? Carmine is one of the boxes that I was yet to try, and I guess now I won't get the opportunity, but from the good reviews it seems to be always consistent, since it launched in October last year, with keeping it's subscribers happy with extremely generous full size sizes and a good selection of luxury products.
I have wondered for a while are all these French based companies all secretly linked?? It seems there have been quite a few changes recently to the Beauty Box craze, with Feel Unique cancelling their box, Jolie & Bourdoir Prive merging and the addition of new boxes on the market, like She Said Beauty (click here for a 25% discount code). The product buyer from Carmine has joined She Said Beauty which is good news!
I don't recall seeing any negative reviews on Carmine - although the packaging in my opinion wasn't the nicest with the bright green! It seems a lot of the Beauty Community are a bit miffed with how Carmine has handled the merge - it seems that there was little or no communication to most of their subscribers or affiliates. It will be interesting to see what their first merged box with GLOSSYBOX shall look like!
Were you a Carmine subscriber? Are you looking forward to seeing the Carmine/Glossybox merged box?
