What are subscription boxes?
They are boxes that contain an assortment of products – typically with a common theme, such as beauty boxes, pet boxes, or food boxes. Your subscription automatically delivers to you periodically for the length of your subscription. The majority of the services keep each month’s specific box items a surprise and allows you to set subscriber preferences to personalize your box.
Did I do the right thing subscribing to subscription boxes?
Yes! I signed up for very reasonably priced subscriptions, and so far I love it. I have no regrets because it is exciting to receive packages and to try something new every month! Plus, if you need or want to cancel for a while it is easy, just go to your account settings and click cancel my subscription. Some may ask for a reason, but they are just doing that for customer service purposes.
Below are six subscriptions services I recommend:
Stitch Fix is an online styling service that delivers a truly personalized shopping experience, for you and your family. Fill out your Style Profile and a Personal Stylist will handpick pieces to fit your tastes, needs, and budget—and mail them right to your door. Each box has a curated choice of clothing, shoes, and accessories for you to try on at home. Merely keep the items you love and send back the rest in a prepaid USPS envelope. Shipping and returns are always free—even for exchanges!
Athena club is all about convenience– known to make your period simpler with high-quality feminine products. When subscribing, you can select the product, assortment, quantity, and frequency; then wait for it to get delivered to you every month. Prices vary, depending on the number of tampons in your order.
Splendies is a company selling comfortable and affordable underwear, costing just $13.99 a month for three pieces. You begin by choosing your size and style– whether panties, thongs, or a mix of both. The undies are cute and of good quality.
For $10 each month Sephora curates a selection of new and best-selling products from makeup, hair care, skincare, and fragrance. When subscribing you have to answer a ten-minute survey questionnaire that helps determine what you will receive. Sephora Play is ideal for anyone who cannot afford some of their expensive products, like me. LOL. Or anyone who likes trying new products and makeup.
At just $5, you’ll receive a beauty box, four times a year with an assortment of new beauty products. Every seasonal box varies, you may sometimes receive a box with just foil packet samples, and there is the season you will get full sized items. It is a hit or miss, but for $20 a year, why not try it?
EarFleek is an online subscription service that sends you a fun and trendy pair of earrings every month for $3.49. You select one of four personality subscription options, and a stylist makes sure to send you something you will love that reflects your personality. Also, they have a feature that allows you to swipe through their trendy styles, letting them know what you like and dislike.
Would Subscription Boxes work for everyone?
No. It all depends on the person. If you are a person unwilling to try new things and does not like surprises, Subscription Boxes may not be for you.
