Ok, here’s the deal, I have a serious addiction to these subscription boxes. Currently I subscribe to:
Beauty Bar Sample Society Box
Petite Box–No longer available but worth mentioning because the concept was fantastic
PVBody Box–Fitness clothes!!!! http://www.pvbody.com/pvbody-how-it-works
and PopSugar http://popsu.gr/pPE
Needless to say, its like Christmas ALL THE TIME around here 🙂 I love it.
Let me be the first to say…not all box’s are created equal!
In My Professional Product Whore Opinion:
BirchBox–This was the first of the boxes I ordered, fun at first, but the sample sizes are tiny and I am officially bored with them. I have re-purchased a few things, but I don’t know that BirchBox is worth it to me anymore….that said, it is a GREAT gift!
BarkBox– For your Dog! I loved it! LOVED IT. So much fun. Willie Nelson loved it too. Great treats and toys! You pick the size of your dog and they do the rest!
GlossyBox–GlossyBox is like the upgraded better version of BirchBox. The sample sizes are actually deluxe sample sizes and they do a great job of sending Lux products too. They tailor to your skin color and preferences. I have had a few nail polishes I can not live without now 🙂
BeautyBar Sample Society–almost identical to the BirchBox…WAH WAH. I love Beauty Bar because they carry my favorite treatment shampoo and have free shipping, but I won’t be getting another sample box.
Petite Box–As mentioned they are no longer available, but this is a great gift idea for any of your pregnant friends. Nobody loves gifts more than a pregnant woman.
“Each month you’ll receive a new baby box full of baby necessities such as baby lotion, baby clothes, baby food, calming oils and more. The contents of the baby boxes change each month, but only the best baby products are always included. You will never get the same thing twice. Mothers enjoy the surprise and utility of receiving a baby box every month. Each petiteBox delivery is like getting an extra treat you weren’t expecting—and more.”
PVBODY Box: “For $39.95/month, we ship a new fitness outfit right to your door. Each box has a retail value of about $139. Avoid the mall, look good, feel great and have our personal stylists shop for you. Shipping is free and you can cancel your order any time.” -PVBODY.com

I have received two boxes so far. I would say the first box was a bit of a bust, but the second box has been great. Here are my frusterations: 1. They don’t have a link share program-LAME. and 2. They do allow for returns and exchanges, but upon trying to request a return I have been sorely disappointed 😦 Still waiting to hear back on how this is done, and its been 30 days 😦 So overall I would say in concept, its incredible, in execution its a bit rough around the edges.
PopSugar–“THE MOTHER LOAD” of all subscription boxes. Like WHOA. While PopSugar isn’t dedicated to beauty, they are dedicated to AWESOME. Each month I get something: beauty (usually a nail polish combo, but this box was a Benefit pack AND hair ties AND the cucumber facial wipes), foodie (I am ALWAYS impressed with this item), fitness (the last two have been DVDs), fashion (this scarf is $89 online) and home (a note pad-but two months ago I got a diffuser from http://www.aloraambiance.com/ and it was legitimately DIVINE–I have already ordered two more for other rooms in my house) and a book (I just got Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling–I read it in FIJI).
While the pop sugar box is over double the cost of the other boxes, it is completely worth it. As mentioned the scarf in this picture is $89 online and the diffuser I mentioned was $60.

I have ordered their one time HOLIDAY LUXURY Box for both men (the men’s is still available) and women. It was a WHOPPING $100 but I know deep in my heart that it will spillith over with awesome. SHH and I intend to wrap it and put it under the tree for Christmas morning-OH WHAT FUN! Stand by for that review!
Enjoy lovelies. Enjoy.
I would LOVE to hear of any subscription boxes you have and what you love and don’t love about each!
