so susan august 2015 bag So Susan Lip Love is a newer monthly lip product and makeup beauty subscription. Every bag includes 4 items: 3 items + 1 BONUS makeup product + 1 BONUS accessory!  From May 2015 onwards, you will be able to preview 2 items. The other 3 items (including the 2 BONUS items) will be revealed after the bags ship.

Note that I did not receive a June or July bag, even though I was charged for each.  I honestly didn’t notice that I didn’t receive the bag in those months until I got this one. I requested that they cancel and refund me for those months. They’re working on it (they wanted my details to look up my subscription while simultaneously confirming that they were shipped – a little odd!)

Every month includes an information card with the details on every product. Instead of a jewelry bonus item, this month it was cuticle oils!

I love the packaging and style for everything they do!

So Susan Strengthening Cuticle Oils so susan august 2015 IMG_5693

Sea Algae, Coconut, Citron, Almond and Jasmine: These are just so sweet, have different properties, and are just a fun sort of twee item. Super cute. One got a little leaky but it wasn’t a big deal. I will use all of these!

Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigment Lip and Cheek Cream in Fig Jam: This is really a nice moist lip and cheek cream. It’s definitely full of pigment and has great staying power. The main thing I can say is don’t be afraid of a pot of fuchsia, try it out, it’s why you subscribe to the box 🙂

Jelly Pong Pong Goji Blush in Lotus: This is a moisturizing blush and was indeed quite creamy when on (I did a video review, check it out below for the swatches of all the colors!). I think this is a pretty universally flattering shade and is quite nice on. The blush pan wasn’t quite glued in though!

So Susan Haute Light in Eggshell: This is pretty much just like a Chella highlighter pencil. You can use it for contouring, highlighting, the corners of your eyes, a shadow base, whatever you typically use your highlighter pencils for.

So Susan Statement Skin Highlighting Crayon: I also received this in my August Boxycharm! Two highlighters in one box is a little weird, but they are really totally different, this is more like an illuminator/luminizer crayon, and So Susan is really famous for their luminizing products.

    Have you run into a problem with skipping a month or cancelling the subscription?! I can’t seem to find where to ‘skip’ or ‘cancel’. When I write to the ‘contact us’ I don’t get a response back other than the automated message telling me to not cancel but skip a month. I don’t get a human response and they continue to bill me when I don’t have the funds to do so. HELP! What should I do in this situation? I want to know what your experience is with skipping or cancelling. Also since you have many subscription boxes, I was wondering if this is typical and how you go about cancelling?

    Thank you!

      Oh and I saw this on your site and thought I’d try it out for 3 months. I bought the August and got Sept and Oct with it. They charged me for Nov and I received it and it was nice yet I thought it was cancelled since I didn’t get an email saying I was to get Nov. I tried to cancel and email them Deb 5th and 9th, which is prior to their skip or cancel prior to the 10th. I emailed them at least 10 times. They charged me and I don’t know what is going to happen now. I don’t know what to do =[ I’ve emailed all four categories twice each today, since I have two ‘orders – 1) when I signed up in Aug and 2) when they continued my sub in Nov.

      Stressed during the holiday season =[

    How interesting, my blush pot wasn’t completely glued on either. I’m also happy my highlighting crayon was a different shade than the one that came with my Boxy. ^_^

      Oooh that’s fun to have two colors!!
