Subscription boxes are the new trend that can either be super worth it and can save you a ton of money or become a money pit for things you don’t need. It’s important to note that before you order any of the boxes that you read all the reviews and do the research. Look at what types of products come in the box, that way you’re not disappointed when it arrives on your doorstep. Some of the boxes cost more than the actual products but when you add all the individual product costs together the box ends up being way less. Although, the products they give are often sample sizes and not full sized. Overall, these products are super fun and exciting. Getting a box of goodies once a month without knowing what’s in it is always something to look forward to! The subscription boxes we highlight are really great for women who like small gifts once a month consistently, treat yo self! If you’re new to the whole subscription thing, then definitely choose the cheapest option and decide if you like it! If you do like it then you can start going for the more expensive ones and really seeing what you like. None of the boxes cost more than $49.99 a month so either way you’re getting your bang for your buck!
Fab Fit Fun: you’ve definitely seen these all over Instagram, especially if you follow any Bachelor contestants. Fab Fit Fun operates on quarter systems, it’s per season. You can cancel anytime if you’re not into it anymore. They send you $200 worth of products and the cost of the box is $49.99 each. The box usually contains 8-10 full sized products. Other boxes only send sample sizes but Fab Fit Fun sends full sized, game changer! The products can be anything from makeup to hair products to small purses or jewelry. Fab Fit Fun provides you with a whole range of products, that’s what makes it so exciting!
Birchbox: birchbox is perfect for someone who wants to get into makeup but doesn’t really know what to get. Birchbox sends sample sized products that way you can try everything and whatever you don’t like you don’t have to use. Birchbox sends you five sample size makeup products per month. Because the sizes are small, the subscription is only $10 a month. This is also a great gift to get for a friend because it’s the gift that keeps on giving. One of the major perks about Birchbox is that you can personalize what you get. They offer a quick online survey where you answer questions and fill out what applies to you, that way your box is more geared towards things that you’ll actually use. Your box arrives at your door on the 10th of every month, so now you’ll always have something to look forward too!
Ipsy: another $10 a month subscription box! This subscription box is for those who love bags and pouches to store your makeup. Every month you will receive many cute products in an even cuter small makeup pouch. Similar to birchbox, prior to getting your boxes, Ipsy asks what color skin you have, as well as what color your hair and your eyes are. They also ask what brands and companies of makeup and products you would like to try. They try to send you products that you will like and that you will order again. They don’t want to send you things you already have, they want to show you new products.
Stich Fix: the last subscription box is one that doesn’t include makeup! This box is a personal styling service that gets shipped to you once a month! For just $20 a month, this service will send you 5 pieces of clothing that you will actually want to wear. As well as, they have great customer service! If you don’t like one of the items they send you in your box, you can return it free of charge. Additionally, if you like everything that your stylist picks out for you, you save an extra 25% and they deduct the $20 fee from your order. Hard to believe, I know. It makes the most sense to keep everything even if you don’t like it, because that way you save money. You can use the items you don’t like and gift them to a friend! Stitch Fix is the perfect thing for the woman who never has time to shop or doesn’t like to shop but still likes to look good. It’s also a perfect way to get a personal shopper/stylist without all the fees that comes with it. You save time, money, and get new outfits once a month – what could be better?
