Cult Beauty Box Announcement


FIRSTLY: if you didn't even WANT A BOX, couldn't afford a box, hate the boxes, I'm sorry that this has taken over the blog this week, normal service will resume tomorrow with a Cheat Sheet by way of an apology and I haven't finished dehydration products! :)

The rest of you with an interest in the Box.....

WE HAVE MORE. Very limited stock, but more.

SO: people that were on the waitlist and ONLY people that were originally on the waitlist and did not buy a box:
  • Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a box.
  • Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a box.
  • You will receive an email shortly after 12pm tomorrow UK time. 
  • You are all getting it together - no staggered emails. As requested. May The Force be with you. 
  • PLEASE read the email carefully.
  • One email, one box. No-one - I repeat no-one - 'ordered ten and ebayed them!' Chill your tits. 

  • The email will offer you the box on a pre-order basis only. 
  • You will not - repeat - will NOT have this box before Christmas. We did not put the original box together in 24 hours, it obviously takes time to coordinate. It will ship early - mid February. 
  • No, unsurprisingly, discount codes are not valid with the box. If a near 50% discount isn't enough then I can't help you any further.
  • I apologise if this reads like I'm talking to a child. Just trying to be crystal clear and manage expectations.
  • Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a box. 
Also: there are no Customer Service people on the phones at Cult Beauty today. I'd be surprised if they weren't face down in a VAT of G&T after the grief they had this week, but that's just me. 

Good Luck for tomorrow. I'll be hiding and watching Poirot.

  1. Laughed so hard I fell off the couch! After Poirot, try Jessica Jones on Netflix. There is a great scene where she tells off some people for taking their feelings out on others. Cathartic!! You are the BOMB, Ms Hirons!

    1. Are there new Poirot episodes? She's mentioned it before (last week's vlog?) but I cannot find any news online.

  2. I can only imagine how hard Cult Beauty and yourself have worked to get these extra boxes. You've all done a wonderful job.

    Whatever you touch is gold!

  3. Hi Caroline,

    I'm really embarrassed as a reader of your blog that you and Cult Beauty have had so much grief about this. When has a product going out of stock ever been justification for such abuse and grumpiness?

    Anyone who has complained should be ashamed of themselves; it's always been perfectly clear that being on the wait list doesn't guarantee a box, and that there was going to be a limited number.

    As someone with a great deal of respect for what you do on here (and as someone who wasn't lucky enough to get a box first time round, but fingers crossed for tomorrow!), I'd like to say thank you on behalf of everyone for all of the hard work you put into pulling Box 3 together. You were (hopefully still are!) clearly so proud of it, and I hope the nastiness of the few hadn't ruined it and put you off making another in the future.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  5. Thank you, thank you...I really needed a good news today and then you came....
    I was on the waitlist, but my sister will have to buy it for me, will that be possible, like can she order on my behalf?

  6. Thank you very very much Caroline [and Cult Beauty] x

  7. Brilliant, you've gone beyond the call of duty here Caroline and Cult Beauty. Does being on the waitlist guarantee you a box though?!!!! Anyone whinging after this deserves a massive slap IMHO. Have a lovely weekend Xx

  8. This is typically where I would say that I came here just for the comments. But really, I came here this time just for your sass Caroline. Congrats on the huge success (and drama) of this latest Cult box!

  10. First of all, that Yoda pic gives me life.

    Secondly, as someone who did not sign up for the box or intended to buy it (though I was obviously tempted) but followed the poop storm this week with growing incredulity, I bow down to you, Caroline and the Cult Beauty team. You, Ms Hirons, have the patience of a mum of four, no doubt hard-earned. I, for one, would not have tried to satisfy disgruntled customers who were behaving like my best friend's toddler after he is denied an expensive toy. You're classier than I am. I understand disappointment, I do not understand grown women acting like this.

    Love your blog, it has turned my skin around. I cannot tell you how much that meant to me after 15 years of struggle (still nothing compared to people who have serious, existential problems, it's important to remember I think). And all the advice was free. I honestly love you for it and felt like maybe you might want to hear it after this week.

  11. Caroline: iPlayer radio : has some mint Agatha Christie at the moment. Wonderful June Whitfield plays Marple. Some poirot there too. Great listen while I detol the house... PS what box are you talking about ??? ;) xx

  13. Hi Caroline , firstly thank you for all your amazing advice and tips, secondly thanks for keeping it real. I think the box looks fabulous but can't justify the amount at this time of year.... I can't believe some people are responding the way they are....get a life folks! I wonder if you have ever thought of doing a cheaper box maybe with sample sizes so people can try some of the amazing products then decide if they want to splurge on a full size one ? I would love to try some of the stuff but would be scared it wouldn't be suitable or I wouldn't like it . Hope you have a fab weekend look forward to more posts and vlogs !

    1. Great idea! I second this super suggestion!

    2. Yes - I would really love a sample size box - with maybe a month size sample of each product . I really wanted this box but can't afford £200 right now. Great work putting it together though. Can't quite grasp the negative moaners have been so vocal. I wonder how many of them have jars of half used product to finish up? :-/

  14. You work wonders, Mrs H. I don't want a box but good luck to those who do. And thank you and your colleagues for the hard work. Xxxxx

  15. For feck sake!

    The entitlement and the aggro over the last few days has been mind blowing.

    Look I get it, life sucks for ALL us sometimes (regardless of age, gender, status). And maybe you wanted to treat yourself. And god knows I hate missing out on a good deal (it's against my religion to pay for anything full price).

    But it's luxury skincare items. (LUXURY. SKINCARE. ITEMS.) Not you know, food on the table for a month. Or medication for your kids. Where I'm at (an European country mind, not 3rd world country) the price of the box is someone's salary for a month. Pension. One time financial aid for people in dire straits is lower than that. So people? Check your privilege (and I mean this in the nicest way possible). You have it better than a lot (A LOT) of people. Be grateful. Isn't that what the holidays are about?

    If that wasn't bad enough, the bitching and insults and whatever thrown at the lady who has been giving us great advice all these years for free (FOR FREE!) - for shame. Truly for shame. I'm facepalming myself at the level of for shame here. And from grown ass women too.

    At the risk of coming of as a crusty bish - people are the worst sometimes. I apologize getting shouty (and for language being hm fruity :), but seriously.

    Caroline - happy holidays to you and yours! Put your feet and have a rest! Also - second the rec for Jessica Jones. Me thinks you'll love it :)

    1. My thoughts exactly! IMHO if someone has £200 going spare, I'm sure they could manage an order with Space NK, Selfridge's or whatever. I don't, but I'm very happy with my skin from the advice I've had on here, and some judicious purchases from qvc, Boots, M&S etc.

      And another vote for Jessica Jones (and Luke Cage's chest)

      Delete
  16. Ha ha this is very restrained! After reading some of the comments on Insta on Thursday I wouldn't blame you if you weren't really liking some of your readers very much at the moment. The sense of entitlement was staggering. Good luck for the next box - if you do another! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Caroline, you are so hilarious but I'm also in a state of shock that you and the poor staff at Cult Beauty have been subjected to such an olympic level of bullshit over this. It's an amazing offer and it was super clear that there were limited numbers. Totally calm your tits people, you were not denied life saving medication -- get a fucking grip and some perspective! You're magnificent, shake them off and have a large Christmas drink. Xx

  18. I missed the box - working on deadline, basically rules my life, but the way I see it, my skin has improved so much, since I found your blog, that any discounts on 'TRIED & TESTED' products, is a bonus. I'll try buying a box tomorrow - I would love one, but if others get it first, that's OK. Life will go on. Mostly, I value your advice so much. I don't buy a single beauty product without searching your blog, first, and that, alone has probably saved me hundreds of pounds. (Recent purchases: Kate Sommerville's Mega C Serum & Goat Milk Cream; Emma Hardies Cleansjng Balm - not to mention both previously Cult Beauty/Hirons Beauty Boxes...)

    I think the thing to remember is that, anyone reading this blog is, essentially, already quids in - even if we've had to blow a hole though our budget, to get there. The bonus (for me) is your "save me the bullshit" candour - that alone is worth a daily drive-by.

  19. 1st,Great email. 2nd, honestly thank you for taking the time to try to appease people who didn't get the box but lastly, people need to get a life. I missed out on the box (having slept in. US time) and the extent of my reaction was... hmm not cool (in reaction to not getting it and sleeping through it). About 30 seconds later you move on. I understand wanting something but if people really really wanted any one of these products then they could easily buy them elsewhere. As far as you and the cult team you seem exasperated and you really shouldnt beat yourself up about it. Know that in reality this is a ridiculous thing to be upset about and that the people making the most noise are probably the least you'd like to sit down and have a glass of wine with. Oh and the conversation would be atrocious. My 2 cents....back to my nostalgia marathon of x-files. Enjoy the weekend!!!!

    P.s. too bad you can't put the really evil ones on the "naughty"list so they don't get anything at all. Would be fitting. ; )

  21. I'd be curious to see if ANY of the people who complained and whined tirelessly had as much grace and dignity as you, Caroline, and actually apologized. Or expressed a modicum of gratitude for going out of your way to work with Cult Beauty to produce more.

  24. Hi!
    I want to say this is one of the best blog posts ever on managing expectations and meeting entitled needs. My dream box is in route to the U.S. I cannot begin to thank you, the companies and Cult Beauty for what has evolved into a near military exercise in managing resources and expectations. And may the force of good manners and sanity invade the bodies of those who crossed over to the dark side, heaped verbal abuse and lost their collective minds over a gift that did not and does not have to be offered. Caroline, you are the bomb! ✊πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ½

  26. I was on the waitlist but didn't manage to secure one , I was gutted but somehow managed to keep my tits calm , I am so grateful for the opportunity for a second chance so will try again tomorrow , I am horrified at the way people reacted to not getting one, they should be ashamed of themselves, absolutely shocking really, Thank you Caroline,cult beauty & everyone involved , You are such an amazing inspirational woman. x

  27. Great post! Those who behave like children shouldn't get upset when they are treated as such - no apologies from you are necessary. You and the Cult Beauty team have already been more than accommodating - thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Caroline,
    I have always drooled over all you Cult Beauty colab boxes- this was definitely the one I had to have- Basically everything that's been on my wishlist for a long time. You are ever the lady with a huge helping of incredible humour!
    Lots of love from South Africa

    ReplyDelete
  29. So kind of you Caroline, Alexia and Cult Beauty team to scramble so hard to accomodate those that missed out when in reality it was out of your control once the emails left the server. It is not up to you to mollify those that either signed up incorrectly (for whatever reason), didn't manage their Inboxes and junk mail properly, or waited too long for click the link (it's Christmas season!) or who didn't take in account time zones. Personally, I am beyond grateful these boxes are even open for shipping internationally, they could easily be restricted to UK only, I hope this experience has not soured Cult Beauty and yourself to future boxes, they are simply wonderful. A huge thank you to everyone, you all all amazing! x

    have been a really cr*p couple of days. I don't Instagram so haven't seem the furore...probably good job too, as I would most likely be foaming at the mouth at the total rudeness of some people, who, after all, should know better!

  32. I need to ask a potentially stupid question- if we manage to order one will we be charged immediately or when it ships in February? Soz for silly question :0 As an endnote, I was gobsmacked by the ridiculous overreaction from some of those self entitled spoilt brats in recent days, especially considering the state of the world. Get a grip, check yourself before you reck yourself etc. jerks. Thanks for this Caroline, the people that matter appreciate your work x

  35. HI Caroline! Long time reader, first time commenting - first of all, thank you again to you and to Cult Beauty for creating this amazing concept. I got the second box and am still thoroughly enjoying every single product. I did manage to get the third box and am really looking forward to receiving it. It really pains me that you felt you had to firstly, write this post, and secondly, scramble with Cult Beauty to get more boxes, because of people's wonky sense of entitlement. I mean - if one (me including) can afford to drop 195 quid on luxury skincare, it probably means that one most likely can afford all of these products without the discount in the first place. With all that is going on in the world right now - shootings, bombings, wars and the never-ending cycle of hunger, poverty, domestic violence etc - being abusive and acting like giant babies on social media because of a luxury skincare box, and this happening so close to the holidays, just makes me wonder whether we have completely lost all perspective on what this season is all about.

    I am excited about my box. I will enjoy every single product -but I will do so with an awareness that I just spent someone's monthly salary on my face; and I WILL be reflecting on my priorities.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I can't believe the tantrums of some people. Claiming they will never buy from Cult Beauty again etc! Well here's a tip, you can bugger off from Caroline's blog too. You're not welcome. I wish there was a way to make sure you don't get the email for the second round...
    I didn't get a box and have my fingers crossed for the second round but won't cry or bitch and moan if I don't get one. Wishing Caroline and the crew at Cult Beauty a wonderful Christmas xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a great thing you and the peeps at Cult Beauty are attempting! I would love it if it works out for me, as I missed out first round. I was super disappointed but now am hopeful for another chance. Not being tied to social media, I've missed the resulting fracas, so I can only hope that moving forward people will be more considerate. Maybe next time there could be a pre-pay order opportunity? Or announce how many are available in total upfront?

    ReplyDelete
  38. The fact that Caroline and Cult beauty have to explain themselves over and over just because their limited edition boxes are running out is totally absurd... They owe absolutely nothing to people at wait list. Caroline and the team have obviously gone the extra miles for this, people better be grateful and appreciates!

    1. One of the things I think is so awesome about the community of Hironettes is that everyone supports each other - there's no snark and people help each other out. It's a great community! I always look forward to the comments because they are funny, supportive, and I just really like reading about everyone's excitement about lots of things. In addition to feeling bad for Caroline and Cult Beauty re Box-Gate, I feel bad for those who did get a box and can't feel that they can share their excitement. I think it's awesome if you got a box, and if you are able to get one this next round, I hope you will feel comfortable posting about your excitement.

      We all know that Caroline and Cult Beauty had nothing but absolutely good intentions, and I really admire the grace with which Caroline has responded. I do not think I could have been so generous. Anyway, here's to the community of Hironettes and hoping that we can all be more generous, kind, and reasonable!

  40. I'll try again, if I'll make it there will be some serious happy dancing. If not I won't buy forum Cult Beauty again
    ......till tomorrow :))))))
    They are amazing and also this box would make me seriously happy beauty wise (Tata Harper and May Lindstrom are my skincare heros and I had the Zelens pads before, they are amazing and I wanted to treat me with the Detox Salts for ages) I think if It's not meant to be (you and me ......sing) I'll just buy May, Tata and Himalayan one after the other, after Christmas

  44. Dear Caroline and Cult Beauty - you have been incredibly graceful in the face of ignorant and abusive awfulness. I cannot believe some people would be so nasty over beauty products. I just wanted to say - I missed out - but I had saved up so I had the cash. I donated the full amount to my local Simon community (homeless shelter) specifically asking that the money get spent on women and children for the Christmas season. Thank you for your blog and your largeness of spirit -- and your inspiration to help others.

  64. First of all, thank you Caroline, Cult Beauty, and the brands involved for allowing a second opportunity to obtain a box. I was working when the original email came out last week, but I managed to pre-order one today. I'm looking forward to receiving it! Also, something I didn't realize beforehand: The 195 pound price includes UK sales tax, which is clearly stated in a red box on the box's page. If you're outside the EU, the tax is deducted from the grand total. Since I live in the United States, the total amounted to 162.50 pounds after tax deduction. I know that cost can still be a deterrent and the USD-GBP exchange rate is not in an American's favor, but I hope this can be informative for some outside the EU!

  72. Hi - I got a mail at 12.02which I didn't read until 5pm so assumed I would be too late. But after reading here that some of the posts here were only a few hours old I decided to give a try.

    I now have an order reference. - does this mean I am getting a caroline box cultbeauty box? I hope so.

    1. I think it's reasonable for someone to be home at 8pm on a Sunday evening! :)
      I'm sure you'll hear tomorrow.

  75. Thank you Caroline - I have made my pre-order. Love from Australia (the first link was sent to me at 1am for the original launch, I was in a deep sleep by then, but thank you to both yourself and the Cult Beauty team for this second chance) x

  76. Hi Caroline, (hi from the US!) I was on the waiting list and managed to order a box earlier this morning. Just wanted to say thank you for working to get more boxes put together. You're amazing!

  77. wow... i hope people realize how lovely you are being ... especially considering those who were complete asshats towards you/cult in their comments. yes, i was lucky enough to get a box first go 'round (alberta time zone worked in my favour??), but it really shocked me to see some of the comments. considering all you do for your readers/followers, you didn't deserve any of that negativity!! i just feel that needed to be said!

  78. I really really wanted to place an order. Email came fine and I had my US credit card issued by a credit union in my hands, same credit card I placed previous box order. I've tried 3 ~4 times but it kept failing at this 3D authorization. Looks like CB might have integrated a new sort of security feature for US credit card purchase? I am not sure where the issue stands but my credit card was unable to go thru this 3D authorization. Is it my card? my browser?? I don't know but instead of me going mad, I decided to let my box go to fellow ladies and wait for the future box. So Ms. Hirons please keep the box coming next season!

    2. You wonderful woman, do you ever sleep? Thank you so much for the help that you've given everyone. Since I had two addresses on the list (since I don't trust my main email provider for timely messages; I didn't try to order a second one) I can confirm that there are boxes left. It's wonderful how helpful and calm you and Cult Beauty have been over this. Anyone with a problem should contact them ASAP -- if necessary create a new email address and reference the one on the list if you're having serious email trouble. Their service is fantastic.

    3. Try another credit card. That's what I had to do because I had the same problem with my first one.

  79. I think Poirot's a good choice--I have been a fan of Agatha Christie for over twenty years. I want to thank you for your great advice through your blog and youtube channel. I have been reading/watching since Feb 2015, and I have had a change in my skin. Since then, I have been able to help my sister and her pre-teen daughter using your advice (All different skin types). Her friends have seen changes and have been asking her what she has been doing. So we are spreading the word over here in our corner of the US. On another note, I was able to get this fabulous box the first time round, mostly due to a lucky early awakening. I will share some of the products with the above mentioned sister when I meet up with her this Christmas. Thank you and Cult Beauty for your extraordinary collaboration efforts and have a good Christmas and New Year.

  81. I've just received my box this morning, the products are beautiful. An indulgent splurge indeed but I'm sure it'll be worth it. Can wait for this evening to try them all out. Thanks very much Caroline and Cult Beauty :) I hope everyone else gets their box!

  82. Ladies, there are still boxes left, email the customer service. They are incredibly helpful.

  83. Just ordered mine, so if you've not had your email (I hadn't), email customer service and they might be able to help you.

    Massive thank you to everyone involved in this. I was disappointed not to get a box last week - mainly because I'd been saving up for a box, and the timing after my exams (mature student) would have been perfect. However, I will now get it in Feb - which is probably even better as I shall be in the midst of dissertation writing and trying to coordinate family and life and in need of pick me up. Thank you.

  84. Hi Caroline, I managed to get my pre order in for Feb. Can't wait! Many thanks and much love to you! I will have my May Lindstrom today so I will have a backup in Feb. Wish I had your job and your madness! Much love from Florida. Kim

  85. I couldn't order first time round as I had a problem with my bank card so I thought 'oh well, never mind', but Boxgate worked in my favour! Thank you for giving us a second chance to buy the box, what a delight it'll be to receive! Mwah mwah! Xxx

  86. Hi box arrived today am soo excited! Unfortunately have a few products on the go so may have to wait until I can try them all. The bath salts smell amaaaaazing

  87. Hi I am sure I wasn't going to get one so am very happy I went to the trouble. I was very late hearing about the drama and thought, oh well it wasn't meant to be.

    Now Caroline I know you said no to ebay but what about the actual box itself? Reckon they will be as precious as those baby boxs they have in Finland!

    I have yet to get my 2 yr old niece a Christmas present, mabe I will 'will' it to her.

    Thank you cultbeauty and Caroline. The best beauty website and beauty blogger ever!

  88. hi Caroline, quick question. will apply the blue cocoon balm after my serum tonight. can/should I apply night cream afterwards? thanks!

  89. OMG the doorbell just rang and a delivery man left a Cult Beauty Box 3. I'm in shock. I signed up for the waiting list but decided it was too expensive. So my wonderful bf secretly ordered one, despite having to pay even more in euros (we live in France). How did he manage that? He knows I'm obsessed with your recommendations and even watches your vlogs with me. This is the best Christmas present I have ever had, and I'm keeping it until Christmas Day. After a year of skin problems and ill health this is going to be such a tonic and lift for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sorry to ramble, over excitement.
