Subscription boxes are talked about all the time, by various people who all have their opinions on what their favorite boxes are. Most of us are guilty of watching unboxing and review videos, or reading posts about what people got in their box this month. But what draws us to these subscriptions in the first place? Sure they all have catchy ads, and people are really good at talking them up online. For the most part, the reason many love them is the fact that you never know what you’re going to get. The surprise in it makes it more interesting, because who doesn’t love a good surprise every now and then?

The best part? Most are monthly subscriptions, so you get a new box of goodies delivered to your door every month! Some boxes, like birchbox, allow you to peek at what you’re getting that month, or let you choose one of the samples you’ll receive. This could initially ruin the surprise factor though, but hey, maybe you just like the deals you get and it’s not about the surprise anyway. I’m guilty of peeking in on my boxes a few times already to.
I’ve tried quite a few different subscription boxes, but my 2 current favorites would have to be birchbox, and fabfitfun. Birchbox is monthly, and FabFitFun is seasonal, so you only get 4 boxes a year.
This monthly subscription box comes with five samples, most times they are sample sizes, but you do occasionally get a full sized product also. Most times it’s eyeliner if it’s full sized. For $10 a month, this box includes items from top brands and they tailor the box to your preferences. Each box is customized by your profile, so you will get items from the categories you choose when signing up, so if you list that you have dry skin you’ll receive products for that skin type.
This month I was happy with every product they sent me, my favorite being the face wash/mask. It smells amazing and left my skin feeling extra soft. The lip stain is from The Balm, and its a very cute and subtle color for spring. I have yet to try the other products I received this month, but will update on how they did when I do.
This would have to be my all time favorite. Not only because it is nothing but full sized products, but also because it’s more than just beauty items. For $50 each season you get a full box of goodies, that are all full sized! When singing up for the first time, you can land some even better deals. For instance, they just ran a promo for the free fruit infusion water bottle and $10 off your first box. My spring box was worth $282!
The value of this box makes it worth it every time, and makes me impatient for the next season each time because it leaves me wanting more! (and no, I’m not saying I’m not satisfied by my box because I definitely am) I can’t wait to try the contour pallet for the first time, this will be my first attempt at contouring. They even sent $55 in gift cards this month. Overall, if I ever had to limit myself to only one subscription for my guilty pleasure, this would be the one!
