Y’all I have a REAL live addition to subscription boxes! It’s so bad that I literally had to go through and stop some of the subscriptions because there were so many that I was paying for and I was receiving the side-eye from the husband! I have since narrowed it down to two that I purchase on a regular basis, but I’m going to share a few of the ones I want to try or have tried in the past!
For me, my absolute favorite subscription boxes are either makeup related or planner related! These are my favorite because usually purchasing these items individually can become really expensive! What I love about the makeup subscriptions is that you can try products without having to buy the full-size items.
My favorite subscription box is the Sephora-Beauty Play Box! In the box, you receive 5 trial samples and a beauty bonus (so really 6 items), you receive a newsletter with tips and how-to’s, information about subscriber-only events, and 50 Bonus Beauty Insider Points for $10 a month!

My @sephora Playbox is my favorite makeup subscription!!! I love the brands that are sent to me monthly!! If you are thinking about joining a subscription box try the #sephoraplay #sephoraplaybox #clevelandbloggers @youthtothepeople @muradskincare @verbproducts #notsponsored
I have received so many mascaras and face moisturizers that I have not purchased them in the last 6 months! Now I have a running list of what I want to buy or try, but I make sure I try them all before purchasing more. Part of me wishes these items are full-size, but the other part of is glad they’re not because if I need to carry a smaller purse they fit right in!
Another one of my favorites is the Target Beauty Box…I have purchased many of these for myself but occasionally they have Men’s beauty boxes too so I surprise Darrick when there is a men’s version available (I have a husband that loves men’s cosmetics as well). The Target Beauty Boxes range in price from $5-$7, and you can purchase them on their website. During Christmas time the boxes were available in the store!
I love that the items in the Target Beauty Box are items that I can go right up the street to purchase! The boxes usually come with 6-7 items in the inside!
Another subscription box that I used to subscribe to was Ipsy Glam Bag for $10 a month, what I loved about Ipsy are the cool cosmetic cases that you receive your items in! The cases come in handy when you need a smaller cosmetic case. I no longer subscribe to this one, but my mom does so I usually try out the products that she doesn’t like.
Subscription Wish List…
CurlBox for Natural Hair, a box filled with curly hair products for $20 to $40 a month
BoxyCharm makeup subscription box filled with 4-5 full-sized products for $21 a month
Medusa Makeup Beauty Box is a vegan makeup subscription box for $15.95 a month
Honestly, I don’t have a budget to buy a bunch of beauty items every month, so this is the reason why I love subscription boxes. Now you can get carried away and spend hundreds a month on subscription boxes, however, if you narrow it down like I have to a couple a month its better for your budget and you still get a good number of products to try each month!
