Hey my fellow curly girlies 🙂 First I want to thank you for bearing with me while I took care of a few personal things. I was not able to blog like I wanted to, but now im back in full effect. ( insert popular theme music here ) lol
Today I wanted to dedicate this blog to the many subscription boxes that are available through subscriptions. While doing my research ( both online and through networking with various people ) I have realized that there are sooooo many different boxes on the market. I also noticed that there are many that you can subscribe per month, but there are also ones you can prepay for the whole year, or pay for 3 months in advance. I have to admit I almost become overwhelmed with trying to pick a fav because there are so many different kinds for a vast amount of people. So I just chose a few that interested me. I have them in no particular order:
I personally subscribe to ipsy. I started in August 2015 I believe. I saw others on instagram talking about it which made me curious. When you sign up you take a short quiz which asks things like whats your hair and skin color, clothing style, and favorite beauty and skin products, etc. It is $10 per month and you can cancel anytime. Each month comes in a pretty hot pink bubble wrap (not shown above) and a different little cute makeup case. The one pictured above was for Dec. You don’t get to choose the products, but if you share on facebook they will reveal one of the products to you before it gets to you. BRANDS THEY FEATURE: Meet Matt Hughes, Laura Geller, Nyx, Covergirl, Nourish Organic, KBS, and many more.
2. Essence Beauty Box essencebeautybox.com
**LINKS TO PRODUCTS**
These beauty boxes come in a monthly subscription for $15 per month, 6 month subscription for $90 charged up front, and a yearly subscription for $165 (which gives a discount to $13.75 per box). Sorry I do not have a good pick of some of the items that come inside, but I literally picked it because of the box and the name! I love the color & design of the box. Which shows a natural woman with all of her curly glory in bright orange and pink hues. The slogan is Soulful. Colorful. Beautiful which I love. I am a big fan of essence magazine and essence.com. I received a list of the products in their November 2015 box and they include: No-Poo® and One Condition Decadence from DevaCurl , Color Splurge™ Luxe Matte Lipstick from Black Opal , Full Exposure Mascara from SmashBox , Professionals Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion from Suave and Hair Fragrance Mist from Fekkai. I personally love the mascara from smashbox (I received it in my ipsy package)
3. Boxycharm www.boxycharm.com
The reason Boxycharm caught my eye is that they say that you can get 4 to 6 beauty products a month (at least 1 always in a full size) for a $21 monthly subscription (valuing over $100). I love the fact that just for a few extra dollars per month that you can receive full-sized products. I have no issue with the sample sizes, and sometimes you still get a full-sized mascara, eye pencil, etc. I would love to get a full-sized pallet instead of just one eye color. It comes in a classy, chic black box and a card detailing your products and the retail prices. If anyone has more input on boxycharm let me know. I’m really interested in this one 🙂 BRANDS THEY FEATURE: Tarte, Ferro cosmetics, Illume, StrangeBeautiful, Revlon, Coolway, Lina Lashes, Morphe Brushes, and many many more!
4. FabFitFun www.fabfitfun.com
**LINKS TO PRODUCTS**
After going through the website and many customer reviews I think I fell in love with this box! What I like the most is that you get many different products ranging from beauty, hair, nails, fitness and even healthy snacks. Unlike the others, they do not offer a monthly subscription. You can either get a seasonal plan which ships every 3 months for $49.99 or you can pay for the whole year up front with an annual subscription of $179.99. Each season box comes with many different products and most are full-sized. This is the only box I’ve checked out that you can receive healthy snacks and fitness DVDs, etc. A lot of the reviews I’ve read stated that they felt like a kid on christmas when they opened the box because it was way more products than expected. If you like variety, and more than just makeup and beauty, this would be a perfect box for you. BRANDS THEY FEATURE: Zumba Fitness, Wren, Great Soles, dermalogica, Zoya , Candlenut , EJH and many more! Each box comes with a mini magazine with each box which includes interviews and various topics pertaining to the season and whats in at the moment.
Goodbeing (formaly goodebox) https://goodebox.com/
Goodbeing has a few different subscription options. If you want a yearly sub you can still pay monthly for $18 per month, a 6 month sub can be paid monthly for $19 per month, Quarterly for $20 a month, and a monthly pay as you go sub for $21 per month. Did I mention its all free shipping??!!?? Each box comes with a card detailing all the products and some even come with coupon codes. Their website says they provide expertly curated, healthy beauty products, non-toxic cosmetics, natural wellness and sustainable, toxin-fee living goods. What I love about Goodbeing is that their products are clean for the enviornment, organic and have no animal testing. All of the reviews I read on their website boasts their fans loving their organic product which promote natural wellness and sustainable living. BRANDS THEY FEATURE: Lillian Eve , Bonnie , Sumbody , David’s Premium Natural Toothpaste , Jamuspa , Detox RX , and many many more!!!
