What companies do you subscribe to?

Recommended Posts

I subscribe to Birchbox and recieved my first Birchbox in January..  I really love Birchbox's service.  The products are all good quality products from good brands, and are products I will use.  I have rec'd things in my Birchbox that I would never have tried otherwise that I have since purchased full size and are now my favorites.  I like the Birchbox points!  

 

I also signed up for Beauty Bar/Sample Society and am looking forward to recieving my first box that is shipping on March 5th.  This subscription includes a years subscription to Allure magazine, and they give you 15.00 to apply to a purchase of a full size product that is in your box.  They have some great products on their website, so I expect this to be a good service!

 

I had MyGlam, but canceled before I rec'd my first Glam bag in February and am glad I did.  MyGlam's february bag is worthless to me.  There was not one thing in it I would use.  MyGlam had a fabulous December bag (their first), the January bag wasnt so hot, but did have a full size The Balm product in it, so that was ok.  The February bag was just horrible.  I feel bad for the people who signed up for the annual subscription. With so many subscription services out there now, I cant imagine why anyone would stay with MyGlam.

I'm subscribed to Birchbox, Sample Society, and The Look Bag.  I was with Myglam but I cancelled after my first and only bag in February.  Drugstore and infomercial crap is not my thing.  I cancelled Beauty Army too, but only because I'm waiting for them to get more stock and change up their samples.  I loved my first box from them, but my next sample picks were half of the same things and I wasn't impressed with them.  I re-did my quiz about 50 times, but there was very little variation in the samples offered.  So, I cancelled and will wait for them to get a bit better.  I'm thinking about cancelling Sample Society because I wasn't overly impressed with the first box and I would rather put that money towards Beauty Fix.  I'm thinking about signing up for Beauty Fix, but only if I get the discount on the first month.  We'll have to see.  I may have to work over the budget a bit to fit it in.  I discovered Birchbox last year and I've become a bit obsessed with beauty and subscription services.  Thankfully, I'm just not that into shoes, or I would get into huge trouble with Shoedazzle.  sdrop.gif

I have since added a second BB account, Beauty Fix and canceled My Glam. Still waiting on GlossyBox.

I am only going to keep either SS OR Glossybox, not both, so it will be interesting to see which one will end up with my business. SS had a LOT of issues the first round of boxes so if that continues next month I will not keep that one no matter how good it is. Life is too short to waste time. I have never had any issues AT ALL with BB, they definitely set the standard.

Here are my updated subs:

 

Keeping:

 

Birchbox

Blissmo (because I signed up for a 3 month sub, but also because I like it!)

Julep Maven - It Girl (i'll probably skip quite a few months though since i'll be out of the country for awhile) I just bought the one cent intro box and the Mystery box, yay!

 

Chopping Block:

 

Sample Society (I was frustrated with their shipping/online issues, now it's just because I'm just not sure if i'll get much use out of the products)

Sindulge (deciding after my free box)

Love With Food (got the free box, it was great! but not really worth $14...check out my blog if you want to see what I got)

 

Canceled:

 

The Look Bag - I really liked the first box...I just didn't see anything I was interested in for this month. Maybe i'll rejoin if April's looks good.

 I will admit I am sooo Addicted to these! It's fun to try new products and get special goodies in the mail.

 

Jewelmint-I often skip months because I don't like the items or I feel they aren't worth $30

Julep Maven-I plan on skipping some months

Bircbbox-I signed up for two to guarantee that I receive the TV box this month but I Might cancel my second account

Myglam-I received my first bag in January. I might cancel depending on how the next few months go, though I bet the month I cancel it will be awesome and I'll miss out!

BeautyArmy-I love that I get to pick my samples but it can be frustrating taking the quiz several times before I get results I like. If they do not provide different companies and selections I will probably cancel them in a month or two. I'm happy we'll eventually be able to skip a month! Their customer service is superb!

Green Grab Bag-I love trying organic/natural Beauty products

The Look Bag

Sample Society

QVC Test Tube

Beautyfix

Sindulge-I am only paying 1cent and from the looks of it will probably cancel this right away after I receive my box in the mail.

 

New Ones I Should Receive this Month

1. Eco Emi-I will probably cancel them depending on how much I like Goodebox since I already have the Green Grab Bag and they are all green/natural products but Ecoemi has fewer beauty items

2. Goodebox-I'm kind of excited about this one!

3. Beauty Box 5

 

Monthly Boxes I order from time to time

Little Black Boxes

Divaliscious Sample Box

My Dream Sample Box

Sampler Village Box

 

I'm on the waiting list for

Curlbox, TheSoapBox, and Glossybox USA

I want to try Blissmobox but only when they have beauty items as an option

 

I cancelled-Regular Test Tube but loved almost everything in my QVC tube test tube

Be careful with the stuff you get from Eco-Emi. Check the expiration dates especially on food as she's sent out at least twice since October/November food that expired.

Birchbox: will keep

New Beauty TestTube (regular version) Will keep. Good value for skincare. Big samples and full sizes.

 

Uncertainties:

Blissmobox: unsure about whether to keep. Value seems uneven across the boxes. 

Eco Emi: May keep or toss depending on the next couple of shipments. Will probably keep either Blissmo or Eco Emi.

Little Black Bag: Will probably skip frequently or cancel but I needed a new wallet so I thought I'd give them a try for a month or two.

 

Nopes:

Julep Maven: Will cancel. I just don't use them enough but had a coupon so I figured I'd try.

 

Waiting for:

Glossybox

Sample Society

 

Considering: 

one of the baby boxes as I'm expecting and think it might be a fun way to try new baby products (and not have to shop).

 

What I really wish is that Ulta or Sephora would do a Birchbox type thing each month and you could stack your review points there. Sephora is so stingy and mean (even to VIBs) but they carry a lot of brands that I like.

Thats funny because I think the same thing about Sephora. The sales people are so snotty, I have only ran across a nice one ONCE. I also get the same feeling from Ulta, so I tend to do my shopping online.1

Do most of these services ship around the beginning of the month?

I would love it if I could get a different box every week. Something to look forward to. :)

Well, I am down to just Sample Society. Birchbox has disappointed me too many times. I can't wait for GlossyBox to open.

    • I suffered from depression as well. And yes I consulted an online therapy but she was a psychic. She resolved my problems and suggested me some aids. I took 3-4 sessions and now I feel fine. You can check her official website if you want.
    • Yup there are a number of Mac cosmetic kits which I guess you could look for. Foundations all together in it will make up to be best for you I guess.
    • Hey guys, im new here and love all things make up.  I seem to collect makeup from all over.  I love glitter, matte, pearl, anything.  The eye shadow palettes have been my weakness.  Every time a new UD or Morphe palette launches I have to run out and buy. With these palettes I have to have brushes to go with them.  Crease and shading brushes.  Then comes the blending brushes.  Lord, you can't have great eye makeup without a fluffy blending brush. Foundation is an entirely another beast in its own right.  I use my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush for my foundation.  It is dense and gets the foundation in all the right places. I actually have multiples of the same brushes so I know I have plenty to create my eye look.  While I was shopping for new brushes, I came across a link for a free makeup brush.  https://41f1caqgpjspd4h6n3u8grlh2e.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=MAKEUP119 It has got a few reviews and looks decent.  Hey, Free is free in my book.  The other major brush I use is the Sigma 4d brush that gets right into the corners around the eye for concealers etc.  I probably use like 6-10 brushes when I am doing a full face of makeup...  Even after all that sometimes I am not happy with the end result but its too late and time for me to step out and do what I was prepping for   lol   Well I am glad to be here and look forward to meeting all of you and getting into this makeup world even more...  
    • Congratulations! There some great makeup artists here. So nice to see you here. 
    • Hi Beauties! I dare to say, I found the most valuable and useful beauty tool for myself. I cannot help sharing it to you all. I said how important to draw our eyebrows better and lighting resources are really important to draw eyebrows. Actually lighting resources are important to your whole makeup.I recommended a LED light mirror under a post before if I did not remember wrong. But at that time, I did not use it myself that much and I just thought It's a good choice for someone who is looking for a good mirror. But now I have to highly recommend it. Since these days it's raining all the time AND I get up so early, there is no much natural lighting for me to makeup myself. Then I take out the LED lighting mirror. It surprised me indeed. Really wide-angle viewing. There is a cover on the mirror surface and the cover can be opened as a wider mirror. You can long press the button to change the brightness. That will meet all your makeup demands. When I draw my eyebrows, I can see every eyebrows clearly. I know how to adjust my drawing natural and better.  I did not take pictures of myself. But here you can check it yourself: https://www.amazon.com/Easehold-Tri-Fold-Rotation-Countertop-Cosmetic/dp/B01MG8X4QS/ref=sr_1_1?m=A24N8FLRVFVVCH&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1519698602&sr=1-1 Highly recommend it!!!
