I ended up subscribing because of the price. I'm looking forward to seeing what the first one is like.

Right now I get:



Allure Beauty Box



Julep (I'm either canceling or skipping for awhile though)





Planner Addict

Pet Giftbox


Dollar Shave (for my husband)


Recently canceled:

Birchbox (just have too many samples)




I need to cancel more, as I still have far too many subs. But hey at least two of them are for my dog!


Hello my name is Lisa and I'm a sub box addict! I need help.... :D  :D  :D

Still only Birchbox and The Soap Box from Fortune Cookie Soap.  I am thinking about signing up the for Scentbird perfume sub, but I can't figure out how to view the actual fragrances they sample beforehand.  Their site lists the brand names, but not all 350 supposed fragrances.  If anybody knows how to view them all, please tell me.  


I used to subscribe to perfumesforabuck.com, but I do NOT recommend that sub for anyone.

I'm down to only:


-Birchbox x2 (I'm a bit obsessed with BB, plus the second account is only an experiment so it'll probably only be around for 3 months unless it's amazing)

-Ipsy (I always want to cancel this, but then I'm like hey it's only $10)

-Petit Vour (Love this one!)


That's all I get every month. Occasionaly based on spoilers/coupons I'll add:


-Vegan Cuts

-Popsugar must have



-Beauty Fix



And I want to resub to:

-Fortune Cookie Soap

-Sample Society

I had to put these in spoilers, did not realize how long they were, oops!  :o


I get currently:




- Birchbox +Beta two full size items (Love Birchbox and their point system!! Not that sure about the beta option though for an extra $20 a month yet)


- Ipsy (My first subscription service, not too sure though if I should stay with them that much longer, but like what @@smiletorismile said, it is only $10 a month)


- BoxyCharm (Love this box!)


- Glossybox (My second subscription, love this one for the unique products in it, and they seem to be getting better!)


- PopSugar MustHave Box (Very fun!)





What I have had before:




- FabFitFun (It was ok, but I already had PopSugar and felt like I did not need it)


- Allure Sample Society (This was before the switch from last month, but when the Allure books were being handed out in each one. Only cancelled because I thought like I needed to cut back on the boxes!)


- Starlooks Star Box/ Customize Box (?) (Had the box before when it was the full size items, then when they started doing to giftcards with the "perfect size" items. Cancelled this month because I do not like their new way of boxes anymore)


- Japan Crate (I might have a little obsession with cute Japanese things! And I love food!)





What I want to try out:




- BeautyFix (Looks so good!)


- Allure Sample Society (I miss these!)


- Jouer (Love their products!)


- Julep (Always wanted to try out their polishes and makeup more, the only two polishes I have from them are from other subscriptions and I really like them!)


- ScentBird (The travel size spray bottle is just so cute! And I love the idea behind this one!)


- Japan Crate (It was so fun, want to subscribe again!)


- Some sort of food box! (I love food! :)

I currently have Ipsy, Beauty Box 5, Boxycharm and GlossyBox. 


I think I want to only have one box in the $20 range, but I'm on the fence as to which one. I have a limited monthly budget and a yarn addiction that I also need some $$ for.

I have whittled it down to what I love most.  I'm thrilled that I had a chance to try a lot of things but I really don't need to store any more samples.  The only one from my cancelled list that I may bring back is Citrus Lane.  It was fun and we used everything as it is all by age of baby.



Love with Food - 9 months left on the year probably won't renew

Magic School Bus - 8 months left on the year, can't renew

Conscious Box - bought a three month trial, likely won't renew







Loose Button


Bluum Box

Citrus Lane (I miss my favorite baby sub)

Ecocentric Mom

Little Passports




Totally necroing a thread but I was just going through everything I have subscibed to and the list is crazy long with lots I miss. I may type up the full list of all I have ever subscribed to once I finish writing it, but I guess I’m doing great with just a couple: sugarbash and Modern Alchemy. I also buy special boxes like the super amazing Indie Beauty box last month and the net a porter box. I just can’t deal with all of the makeup and stuff I will never use anymore. I wish I had a good way to trade it all but have about given up on trade methods and will likely just donate.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
