After feeling so good about my Birchbox, loving what I’ve gotten with my Beautybox5 and craving another reasonably priced monthly sample box, I decided to see what else was out there. I’d heard of a few: Testube, Glossybox and Luxe Box by Loose Button in Canada, but I wanted to know more. How many are there? How far does this monthly sampling box idea go? I’d also seen Petitebox which I really wanted to get for a friend but they had suspended subscriptions for a bit. Then today I heard of Wittlebee box.
So I hopped on to Bing to see what else is out there. I found a link to Beautylish which I recently joined and love their articles. What I was about to read I was not prepared for. One blogger Yasmin K (her Beautylish a/c here) created a list in a response to someone asking about monthly boxes as well. See the response below:
I hope you appreciate the effort that went into screen printing this as I got very frustrated when I realised I couldn’t scroll and select >_< Thanks Apple.
Today I joined the waiting list for Myglam and I was about to try Beauty Army but I don’t like having to choose what I get (even though that’s a good thing) I was hoping to be surprised. I tried Julep before and I thought it was too much money for what I got so I cancelled. I love getting these products even though I’m going to have to look for somewhere to store the ones I haven’t tried as yet but don’t want to throw out either.
I’m also on Shoedazzle, JustFab, Shoemint and Jewelmint. So far I’ve only made purchases on the first two but I’m very close to a purchase on Shoemint. As you can probably guess, Jewelmint and Shoemint are the same so you don’t need to sign up twice just use the account information for whichever one you create first.
Did you see any you want to try?
I think these are amazing. Funny enough my husband just asked if they had any for food and Yasmin pointed out that there are! I’ll see if he wants to try it. He won’t do Birchbox for men because he’s not one for trying different routines or is fussy anyway. All he wants is Old Spice and his cologne. *Sigh*. I hope you found this as helpful as I did and let me know if there are more to be added to the list!
