Thanks so much, knowing that you've subscribed for so long and still are happy really helps me to feel better about dropping $110!
I was monthly for something like ten months, went annual (strangely, I upgraded to annual right *after* receiving what might have been the worst box I have ever received, with stick-on eyeliner and powdered mouthwash), renewed for a second year when that ended, and will be renewing for a third year when this one ends. It goes back and forth between meh and awesome, but it averages out to more than worth my less-than-$3.50-a-month-after-accounting-for-points. There might be a craptacular box one month, but then there will be a really awesome box the next (or at least within two or three months, and the intervening months will be solid). It has not consistently gone downhill, at least for me. I might not like the tan wipes and sunblock they tend to focus on during the summer, but there will almost always be a balancing item that makes it not completely horrible.
And, oddly, when I look back at a box I hated or thought was really boring when I received it, I now look at it and think it was a pretty good box. Preferences and interests change. I still hate that stupid stick-on eyeliner, though.
Thanks so much for your opinion, it really helps and now I think I am going to do it. I have been really happy so far and the points are fantastic! I just hope things will stay at least as good as they are, especially the points system! Hearing you are still a subscriber after so long makes me think I am definitely in! I love cashing in on the points and that promo to get double gives me the most... :)
