So I am sure some of you have heard things about different monthly beauty and fashion subscriptions of all kind. There are so many companies doing them right now from Birchbox to Julep to glossybox. It can be confusing to keep them all straight and decide which ones you want to subscribe to. I am here to help. I have created a list of the major ones in the USA since most of my readers are from the USA. If you live in another country and would like one for your country just let me know in the comments below and I will do it right away. To visit one of the companies all you have to do is click on the name.
Birch Box: A birch box costs $10 a month with free shipping. You will get 5 deluxe samples of makeup, hair, and other beauty related products from a wide range of brands including Kiehl’s, Stila, Jouer, Smashbox, Carol’s Daughter, and Kerastase. All of their products sent in the box can be bought in full size on their website. Something unique about Birchbox is that you get 10 Birch points for every box you receive and if you refer a friend you get 50 points. Once you get 100 points you can use those points for $10 dollars worth of products on their website.
Julep: Being a Julep Maven will cost you $19.99 with free shipping. You will get a box of over $40 of customized Julep treats including nail polishes and different nail products. Some perks to being a Maven including 20% off all purchases in the Julep Maven Boutique and there is no commitment. You can skip as many months as you want or send it to a friend as a gift instead of sending it to yourself.
Glossybox: A glossybox membership costs $21 a month with free shipping. By purchasing a glossybox membership you will be given 5 deluxe size beauty samples from companies like Marvis, OPI, Phyto, Zoya, and CO Bigelow. Glossybox just opened to the US in April so it is very new to the list.
My Glam: To join Myglam you must first take a beauty and style quiz so that they can customize your myglam subscription. Once you have joined you will be paying $10 for 4 to 5 samples from companies like philosophy, studio gear, and iss beauty. Unlike most companies that send their products in a box my glam sends the products in a make up bag with designs like lips and starts on them.
Beauty Army: To sign up for Beauty Army you will have to buy $12 every month. Beauty Army allows you to choose 6 samples from a list of 9. This is the only subscription program that allows you to choose. Their brand list includes Cover FX, Eye Candy, Era, and Korres. You can also buy the full size products on their website.
Beauty Bar: Joining the Beauty Bar’s Sample Society will cost you $15 a month. After joining you will receive 5 deluxe-sized samples from beauty brands like Murad, Stila, and Oscar de la Renta fragrance. Because the Beauty Bar has teamed up with Allure you will get a bonus one-year subscription to Allure magazine when you join the Sample Society.
