Today I cancelled my long membership with IPSY so keep reading to find out why I cancelled.
Why I Cancelled IPSY!
Like I said today I cancelled my subscription with IPSY after being a member with them since 2011, that is 5 YEARS you guys!! Crazy right?! After getting them for 5 years it was time to go. It’s kind of a bittersweet thing for me but I do want to share with you the reasons I did cancel. I have ZERO hard feelings towards the IPSY company or their customer service. (If you don’t know what IPSY is, it’s a beauty subscription bag delivered right to your door for $10 a month).
Let’s get into this…
I wasn’t excited anymore.
That sounds as simple as it is. I remember getting that pink envelope in the mail and being so excited I would rip through the envelope and dig into the bag with extreme urgency. I couldn’t wait to see what was in each bag. As the years went by that excitement wore off and I would see my IPSY bag in the mail and not care as much. Of course it is still fun to get beauty products no matter what but I was just over this bag.
The product brands.
I haven’t always been super fond of the products that came in my IPSY bags, some were brands I knew, most weren’t. And I totally get it, we should be discovering new beauty products, and yes that is true, but for me and this is just my opinion I wanted a few brands I knew from time to time. For example the last bag I got was again from a brand I have never heard of and not one word on the packaging was in English… I don’t know any other languages and to be honest this made me not want to use the product because I had no idea what it was even for.
With IPSY sometimes it was kind of hard to actually find a product in full size that you had received in your bag. Like if I really loved a product and wanted to buy it in full size sometimes it felt like I was searching through the whole internet to find try and find it. And also most things were from online companies only and not where I could go to a brick and mortar store to pick something up.
I’m good with Samples:
I have so many samples ya’ll… SO many. I do have another beauty subscription service, so I am still getting beauty samples/deluxe sizes but I just don’t need this many, you feel me? I would be so underwhelmed with the samples I got in later IPSY bags that I would open it up, look at what I got and just leave them in the bag, never using the samples. Maybe I should donate them or something… that would be nice. Anyways I was inundated with samples.
So ladies these are a few of the reasons I cancelled IPSY, again I have no hard feelings or do I want to bash the company. I think they are a seriously great company with a great team behind them. But just like we got tired of that favorite shirt we used to wear all the time in high school, I got tired of this and wanted to move on to different things.
