About Sample Subscription Boxes

Hello everybody! I haven’t posted anything related to beauty sample subscription boxes for a while and there is definitely a reason for that other than the fact that I haven’t got the time to do so. I used to be subscribed to Glossybox, Beauty Army and Julep Maven. It sounds like a lot but I was really happy with all of them, so trust me, it used to be worth it. 

I decided to unsubscribe from Glossybox mostly because their customer service sucks. I mean, really, they are terrible. I did not get a box for a couple of months because somehow I never seemed to get charged for it, at first I thought there might of being a problem with my credit card or my billing information but I ended up realizing that Glossybox’s system is a mess. Plus I wasn’t too excited about the Man Repeller box, I have nothing against Leandra Medine, I am just not the biggest fan of collaborations because they usually suck, I learned that from Birchbox actually. For instance, I wanted the Tarte lipstick but I knew that not everyone was going to get it, so I decided that I would much rather get it myself than order a box that probably won’t contain what I am expecting. 

So, I also unsubscribed from Beauty Army. Here is the thing, I really liked the fact that I was able to choose my samples. It sounds like a sweet deal but it’s not really like that in the end. Once their samples are released the system usually goes down. I used to try over and over again to log in and it wouldn’t work, finally a few hours later when I was able to enter the choosing box all the good stuff will be already gone. And I was left with a bunch of stuff that not only I didn’t wanted to try but also had already. It was awful and frustrating. 

Anyways, I am sticking to Julep. They are very efficient, the quality of their products is amazing, they always try to bring something fresh to the table, their service is great and their boxes actually ship when they are supposed to. 

What are your thoughts on beauty subscription services? Is there a decent one that I do not know about?
