Today I wanted to do a little 101 on subscription boxes and the ones I’ve tried out!
Ipsy: A $10 box/bag that sends drugstore to mid-range items monthly. The point system allows you to only purchase items they’ve selected. Requires heavy social media use to get off the waitlist.
Birchbox: A $10 box that sends mid-range to high-end products monthly. The point system is per dollar and you can use it to buy anything Birchbox sells on their website.
Glossybox: A $20 box where you get high end products and full sized product monthly. The point system isn’t great, nor is customer service.
Julep: A $20 monthly box with a focus on nail polish. The points can be used towards purchases each month. Customer service and company practices are lacking.
Nerd Block: A $20 box focused on nerd culture. Great products and you’re guaranteed to get a t-shirt each month. Ease of switching between themes, but no point system.
