Mecca Beauty Loop

I’m very excited because I’ve just hit level 1 of Mecca Beauty Loop status meaning I qualify for their 4 free sample boxes every year. I was just wondering if any other beauties have received these boxes before and what they’re like?

I must say, I am one of the very fortunate ones who lives right near Sephora and various Mecca locations and I really don’t think Sephora even remotely compares to Mecca when it comes to customer service, number of exclusive brands and general awesomeness. Mecca impresses me every single time I go there. Though I’ll always be hitting Sephora for my Kat Von D fix!

    @Shali_Nialler I was level 3 for a long time but quite sick of Mecca for several reasons (e.g. unnecessary price mark ups on products that can be purchased significantly cheaper elsewhere, lack of sales and when they do have sales, it is of old and close to expired products, predatory competition practices such as locking in Hourglass and suing them for exclusivity of distribution but then will let Charlotte Tilbury do otherwise). I do not shop there anymore unless I have to. Also really unimpressed with circle jerk spaces like Mecca Chit Chat.

    Somehow sitting at level 2 and I am surprised there are Westman Atelier samples at this level. Each to their own but nothing at level 3 piqued my interest. Otherwise, have generally never rated Mecca loop boxes, particularly compared to other websites that already provide these samples, and sometimes even exactly the same for free.

      With you on this one. I hardly shop at Mecca these days. I go to beautylish, revolve and cult beauty. Even with shipping it’s cheaper than Mecca. Mecca is so expensive I don’t understand how. I’ve given up going. Avoid it. I’m still a level 3 but won’t be there in a few months. The sales are ridiculous. I won’t do look fantastic either. There site is terrible. Brought a product didn’t receive for three months then randomly refunded. Both are overrated.

      Sorry could get your reply sooner! Forums acting up again for me! Anywho… I’m sad to hear that you have had negative experiences with Mecca.
      I have to admit, there Beauty Loop boxes are only starting to improve. I do wish they had more frequent sales like Sephora, I don’t get why they don’t. And when they do as you said perfectly the products are usually old stock Christmas holiday stuff usually and it goes within the first milliseconds of launching. I find that the ChitChat page is quite helpful when looking into products but the hauls aspect annoys me a little.

    Did anyone get the recent Beauty Loop box from Mecca? If so what did you guys think?
    I loved my L3 box and I feel like the boxes are getting better and better each time!

      I now qualify for one again (just went back up to Level 1), but never got an email notifying me about it…unless they’ve stopped sending email alerts…oh well, I’ll wait & hope that the October one comes out early.

        @Seashells They send out the emails. You might want to check your spam folder or re-subscribe to their emails again.

      I am actually keen for this month’s Beauty Loop. I am now at L2 and we allegedly get a deluxe size Glow Recipe Pink Juice Moisturiser. Glow Recipe isn’t really a brand I am excited about but I think this is a generous thing to include in this month’s Loop at my level.

    The Masterclasses are so good! So informative and very persuasive! haha! I had a Glow Recipe Masterclass last week and I immediately bought the Glow Recipe Glow drops after the session! 2 days ago I had a Ren masterclass and I have adding some of their products to my wishlist! LOL

    The free goodies that come from these masterclasses are awesome! My sister and mum think I buy a lot from Mecca but when the “free masterclass goodies” come but I tell them that those are gifts from Mecca! Learnt so much from these sessions from facial skincare techniques to learning about different products! Love it!
