Having just discovered the world of monthly beauty boxes, it's really fun going through and seeing all the reviews of the different companies! I can definitely say that these boxes are hit or miss... but a lot of people are subscribed to multiple beauty boxes! I'll admit, I just subscribed to BeatuyArmy, BirchBox and MyGlam! 

 

So my question for you beauty addicts out there is: which boxes are you subscribed to and what's your favorite?

 

I'd love to hear from people that have had their subscriptions for a while, and aren't basing their fav's on the first box they got wink.gif (and I've only listed US boxes for the poll, since that's all I have access to!)

You might not want to call the general MuT population glammies, just an fyi. smile.gif

post #3 of 104

AMEN! (To the "calling MUT users glammies could be a bad idea" thing) 

post #4 of 104

Add the QVC version of the New Beauty Test Tube. I have 7 subs and that one's my favorite!

post #5 of 104

I've been subbing to Testtube for over four years now and like it the best. My fave 'monthly' is Eco Emi which was my first sub.

I've seen reviews on that one, it looks awesome! Better products than most, so you get what you pay for I guess!
post #7 of 104

I have had Birchbox, MyGlam, Sample Society, Sindulge, Julep Maven, Conscious Box, Green Grab Bag, BeautyBox 5, and myplatinumbox.

 

My favorite by far is Birchbox!  I've gotten the biggest variety, consistently highest quality brands/products, and the best service and perks from them.  

post #8 of 104

Birchbox is my favorite so far, because it has been very consistent and I already earned enough points to get free products. I also received a free sponsored box full of deluxe size Vichy products, so that was awesome. I absolutely LOVED my Sample Society and Conscious Box items, but I have only received one box from each so far. I loved my Julep box and my Sindulge box, but each were only a penny, so one product that I liked would have been a good score for me. I am very excited for my free Glossybox coming up. My free Love with Food box was pretty cool, but I would rather have beauty items. BeautyFix was an amazing deal and lots of fun; the products are mostly full size. BeautyFix is quarterly, so it feels expensive to pay at one time, but evens out over the 3 months.

 

Honestly, trading is my favorite thing so far.

 

The subscription services are so subjective. I wouldn't have known from reading on here which services I would like, since people rave over boxes that I don't care for and complain about boxes that make me drool.

Birchbox for Monthly and QVC edition of NewBeauty Testube for quarterly :)

Thanks for all that info!!! I was thinking of trying julep but just got the whole gelish system so I don't have much need for regular nail polishes anymore. You're definitely right, it's all very subjective... I'm just looking for decent quality products. You'll have to let me know how you like SS and CB, I really debated on getting those two! I like the idea of getting samples from sustainable and conscious companies, but you never know what you're going to get!

Oh, I absolutely love Conscious Box, you should give it a shot!  It is pricey, but I love getting so many different kinds of things.

My brother and I received our mystery box from Conscious Box, and loved it. That's our second beloved box from them. It's a variety of types of products. Probably a 1/4 of it were beauty items.

post #15 of 104

Birchbox is still my favorite because of the points system. I have over 700 points now but not sure what to get.. so I may have to give it a few more months and then just place a big order. I hope I enjoy GlossyBox as much as BB. Sample Society is ok, first 2 months were great IMO but last month, not so much.

post #16 of 104

Right now you can sign up for Julep under someones referral for a penny for the 1st month. You could then cancel or just continuously skip months until a month has the polishes you like.

post #17 of 104

Eco-Emi is my favorite of the monthly services I've tried so far! I really love the products they put in their boxes! (In a non-monthly box, my hands down favorite is the Allure Summer Beauty Box: it was incredible! I think they're going to have a Fall/Winter one, so stay tuned! Mine had over $300 of products for only about $50! I saw a review on it a year ago and waited to order one this past April; it was worth every penny.) 

 

-My favorite pet-themed box is: BarBox! My dogs have loved everything so far; I started out with a 3mo subscription, but I will probably go yearly with that one since it's so great! 

 

I've ordered and am waiting to try: Birchbox, GlossyBox, LoveWithFood (promo), BeautyFix (promo), FitBox (free).

 

I've already tried: New Beauty Test Tube (It was good, but they substituted the two samples I wanted without giving me notice; I may try the QVC one in the future), Sample Society (cancelled after my first box; disliked it!), Julep: I got my first box dirt cheap so it was worth it! In general though, I don't feel that it's worth the price without a promo deal, unless you just really want a certain shade.

 

(In the future I'm considering: Bellismo, Green Grab Bag, and Conscious Box, and a few others! :)

PoshPod.

 

No really, Birchbox is a little inconsistent, but the best overall.

You mentioned fitbox being free? I just googoled them and it's looking like they're $10/month to sample different fitness supplements (something I'd totally love as a triathlete and marathon runner!) It says fitbox but is at myplatinumbox.com, am I looking at the right one? Thanks!!!

Have you checkod out klutchclub? Theres a thread about it and some of us have gotten the April, May and now June boxes. Its 18.00 a month but so far the boxes are worth the money.

You can also google it to find reviews.

Right website, and there was a promo code that made it free, not sure if the code is still valid

Does anybody get CraveBox? I saw box openings for it on YouTube in May, and it looked really great, but I haven't seen anything else about it. Nobody I'm subscribed to on YouTube did a CraveBox May Review or anything. I am kind of disappointed because I want to see what they thought of the products that came in the box. I will probably search on YouTube for May 2012 CraveBox review in a little bit. Is CraveBox worth the price? I am considering trying it out.

I have been on the waitlist for about 2 months now, so if you are considering joining, I would suggest you get on the waitlist now. You can still decide later not to subscribe (when they invite you to).

I have Birchbox, Glossybox, Influenster and Julep currently, but I have also done BeautyArmy and MyGlam.

 

First of all I am a polish freak so saying Julep is my fav is pretty easy. But I can't really just say that it is. I do love getting polish most of all in any subscription. Why I said Julep is because you can choose which box you want, can add on other colors and skip if you want to. You can't say that about a lot of other boxes. What makes me hesitant to say it's my favorite is because it's just polish and sometimes i want more variety.

I don't want to really weight in on Glossybox just yet as the company just started here in the US and I have only gotten one box.

 

Birchbox is my fav right now out of monthly beauty boxes that have a mixture of nail, skin and makeup. Sometimes the boxes are hit or miss, but they have more quality products than either BeautyArmy or MyGlam had. I also love their point system. Each box you are pretty much getting 5 bucks back.

 

I do love influenster. It's free in the sense of money, but you do have to work for your box and you don't get every one. I understand why and my first box had great products. It's a great service for those who can't afford a monthly one.

I got julep for one month but cancelled because I started using the gelish system, so I have no use for regular polishes anymore. They do seem to be really nice polishes though, and I liked their pedi cream! I like birchbox a lot and did the same as you: cancelled BA and MG.  I just joined glossybox and have been stalking my email account waiting for a shipping confirmation! I'll definitely be excited to see if glossybox lives up to the rave! As far as influenster, I joined a while back and have been doing all the surveys/badges I can and am not getting boxes... Guess it's just luck of the draw?

 I went to their site and looked up what they included in the past month's boxes, I really like what I see!!! Too bad the gift cards are to fairly expensive websites. Guess that's the point though, get you spending more money!! :D I really like that it's natural and fitness-focused samples though, thanks for the heads up!! Might have to do that one!

I don't have cravebox but have looked into them. They seem a bit like MG, you don't really know which month's you'll get something killer and others will probably be duds,,, Their first month had laundry stuff, markers, snacks.... Its more of a variety but you can get samples of the home stuff pretty easily (like I get a lot of free samples from freeflys.com, all home stuff, body care or snacks. Granted you may have to wait a couple months to receive them, but hey, its free!) If you're looking for a variety box, I've heard AWESOME things about conscious box. A bit more expensive, but I've been told you get a ton of stuff and a great variety.

Welcome, Claudia!
 

post #30 of 104

I subscribe to Birchbox and Eco-Emi, and recently added New Beauty Testtube but haven't received my first one yet. 

 

I've got to say, I like Birchbox and Eco-Emi equally well.  I think both are quality, and I've discovered items from each that I've gone on to purchase and enjoy using.
