A box I didn’t know I truly needed!

FabFitFun on May 2019

We get a fair amount of beauty and skincare subscription boxes and I’ve recently been getting a few home & planner ones. I constantly see ads for FFF and was wondering if $50 was ever really “worth it “ as most of mine are $25 and under every month. A friend who I thought would never get a subscription box or spend this much money told me that fab fit fun made her week every time she got it! The combination of skin care/beauty, random accessories, a little bit of healthcare plus a little bit of fun and the occasional clothing item is a fantastic deal for $50.! If you’re the type to break it down to a monthly cost it’s completely worth it but I think of it more as a package thing and a bigger purchase. Every box is guaranteed to be over $200 in value, which they well over are but I do think when I see the bigger box, I sometimes think; “Could I’ve gone out and spent $50 and got stuff I really wanted Vs buying this box?” Well, yes & no. A huge part of the fun is the discovery of new products and things to corporate into your routine that you don’t know about or use. Most of the items solo are worth about $50 so therefore it is worth it. Whatever is completely something I would never use I’ve just...

Loyal fan for years....

Birchbox on May 2019

I must admit, some early birch boxes can be hit or miss and I feel that things did not apply but since they’ve changed their curation process and surveys we’ve had nothing but great boxes these past few months! The shipping is even quicker which means we get our box the first week of the month versus anytime after the 14th . For $10, between my daughter and myself we always received a unique mix of products we usually would not buy otherwise. My box did get a little heavy in the hair products, which isn’t something I felt I needed and eventually was able to tweak my profile so I don’t get so much of that sort of stuff. What I have liked about Birchbox is that you can pick one of your samples and often the samples a really good brands and products and they let you or me at one for family of samples for me it’s usually the fragrance one because I wear the same perfume every day so that means I didn’t have a “wasted sample” anymore. I never really looked at the curated box options because I always like the surprise but recently have gone that route a few months because they are such good products. The boxes are cute and we save to put other things in for storage reasons - in a perfect world, we get the UK Birchbox boxes that slide out...

Loyal subscriber since 2013 & love it!

Ipsy on May 2019

We have been getting this box since 2013 and now my daughter gets her own bag and I get the glam bag and still think it’s a great value for the money! It can be a little frustrating to see when your bag but actually turned up because the shipping dates do very but I think they are getting better with their new computer settings. It seems like now they have it down to a science where you can See your samples towards the end of the month, Then they open add on samples” the second of every month and then shipping happens within a few days of that. The add on samples are really a great deal for three dollars only. The $12 ones are for people that truly know that they are missing something and want it but the three dollar ones are an easy fun way to add some new stuff onto your bag that you know you weren’t getting! For $10 a month there is no better subscription bag because you get five great samples and a cute make up bag which have countless repurposing uses. Our only complaint is that we get too many brushes. When we didn’t get many brushes it was great but now we seem to always get them but they are easy to pass along to friends and family. Customization is based on your reviews so it’s a great idea to review them and you also get...

I wanted to love this box,but for $21...

GlossyBox on May 2019

Glossy box has some pretty good new subscriber gift so I just tried decided to give it a shot even though the $21 price tag was comparable to some other hiring boxes which give out mostly full sizes. The box I received had full-size mascara and face wash of brands I wasn’t really aware of and also happen to have surplus of this type of product. The other items were sample size which was a bit of a disappointment Given the $21 price tag. Although, sometimes I see other peoples box reviews and I think what a great box I wish I got that one. I did have a billing confusion where they billed for a second box very quickly once the first box shipped (it wasn’t the first of the month or anything) and I did call them on it ( like on the phone, and they answered and solve the issue right there. Which was great ) and they did refund my money for box #2 because I wanted to see the box before I paid for another box... i’m glad I did because I was less than thrilled with the $21 box. If this box was 15 or $18 I’ll probably do it but once you hit over $20 there are other beauty box options they give you more bang for your buck in my opinion.

Great valve & wonderful products!

Jersey Shore Cosmetics on May 2019

We LOVE the Jersey Shore balms & were so happy to find this box! For about the price of a single balm, you get 4 random products from them...great so you can leave one in the car, purse, makeup case, etc. Only reason we canceled is bc we had a bit of a surplus backup in lip balms but plan to reactive again soon! I wish they’d do a box that includes their other products (take our 💰)
