I've been asked so many times what companies do I subscribe to. Here's what I'm currently subscribed to as well as what I've been subscribed to.
Monthly I get boxes from:
Monthly subscriptions that I can skip and don't use often.
- JustFab ($39.95 monthly, skipable)*
- Shoe Dazzle ($39.95 monthly, skipable)*
- Sole Society ($49.95 monthly, skipable)*
I just subscribed to Beauty Bar Sample Society ($15) and am waiting for my first box to be shipped on March 5, 2012.
I also get New Beauty's Test Tube ($38.80 quarterly) and now New Beauty's Test Tube at QVC ($50 quarterly).
I've canceled my subscriptions with GoGoGirlfriend ($12.95 monthly) and with Eco-Emi ($15 monthly includes shipping). I canceled GGG because I couldn't get over the Dollar Store feel from my first and last box. I had Eco-Emi for four months, I canceled in October (third month) but ended up with a box in November because I canceled after payment was made. I HATED Eco-Emi's billing cycle - what ever day you sign up that's the day you pay which means for me I was paying up to eight weeks before getting my box. I can't recommend either one of these companies and will say to those looking to subscribe to avoid these two companies.
I've been a member of Shoe Dazzle since March 2009, the month is launched. It was the FIRST subscription service I ever heard of much less subscribed to. I don't order monthly and skip alot because I no longer wear heels due to foot injury. They now offer beauty products, hair products, jewelry and handbags. I've been a member of Sole Society since it started and just got a subscription with Just Fab last month. I've just placed my first order with Just Fab tonight and have only ordered from Sole Society once (it's $10 more than Just Fab and Shoe Dazzle and the shoes are basically the same style).
Out of the beauty ones I love Birchbox the most. I'm entering my 9th month with them (joined in May, first box in June 2011) and come May I'll be switching to a yearly subscription. I love Birchbox, they have some misses but also some fantastic items they send out.
I've only received one Beauty Army since it launched January 2012 and February will be my 2nd month with them and 3rd with MyGlam. I'm still not sure if I'll keep either one past three months yet but most likely I will.
I signed up for Julep in November, got a December box but skipped January. I'm waiting for my February box. I'm still on the fence with this company due to the price. It is the most expensive of my monthly subscriptions and the size of each polish is comparable to a mini-polish from Zoya.
