Announcing the My Subscription Addiction Quarterly Box!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

MSA Quarterly Box

If you subscribe to the newsletter, then you were the first to hear the news – today marks the launch of the My Subscription Addiction subscription box with Quarterly!

Through subscription boxes I’ve been able to sample hundreds of brands and products, and discovered so many new favorites. I’ve also learned a lot about what type of products work best for boxes, and now I get to put that knowledge to use in crafting the My Subscription Addiction Quarterly Box!

What you can expect from the box:

  • It will be a mix of beauty, lifestyle and fashion items.
  • My picks will all be ingredient conscious. For example, if I include a mascara in the box, it will be free of ingredients like parabens, or phthalates. If I include a candle, it will be free of ingredients like paraffin wax or synthetic fragrances.
  • This is a box geared toward women.
  • The box ships 4 times a year – the first month is September.

Use coupon code MSA5OFF to save $5 off you first box! (This offer expires tomorrow (6/19) at midnight PST.

Let me know what you think of the theme, and if you have any questions or suggestions. I’ve always been interested in what goes into making a subscription box, so I’ll be sharing my experience with you as well!

Of course, I won’t be able to do a regular review of this box, but I will do an unboxing post when it ships explaining why I picked each item. And if you subscribe and want to review the box let me know – we’ll do a link-up post to share reviews!

  1. Omg congrats on Your own curated box. Can I be gifted a boxto review pretty please. It took me only 1 unboxing review to it page. Because of ur page im addicted to subrcription box reviews. necause of those i found great subscription box unboxings on youtube that when i can afford to buy the subscription’s for the bpxes i enjoy watchingdd i hope I get to build up my blog & my do I hope I get to see a great bunch of unboxing of my own one day. Your reviews are informativve and inspiring and honest

  2. Wow! How exciting! I love your reviews and I know you will be successful in this upcoming adventure! I signed up right away…now a few months of saving my pennies, can’t wait!

  3. I’m excited for you. I signed up for it. I enjoy reading your posts and appreciate your eye for detail. I can’t wait!

  4. I emailed you right off, but I wanted to post here CONGRATS! I subbed immediately, and I can’t wait for your box. I know I’ll love it! <3

  5. So excited! I just signed up. Thank you so much for the code. I would have signed up anyway but that was very nice! Tomorrow is my birthday and so I am saying this is a birthday gift to myself. I’ve never done Quarterly because some of the stuff just seems so weird but I know you will be a great curator.

  6. I would love to get this! I would have to cancel the three I have right now though I’ll wait and see if mine get better and when yours comes put I will definitely be looking for reviews!

  7. This is so exciting! I already signed up for it! Now if only you could included a maxi dress I would love you forever!

  8. Congrats Liz that’s so awesome! I’m working this one into my $100 monthly budget that my hubby and I agreed upon. Shared on Twitter and Facebook too! So exciting!

  9. This is so exciting! I really don’t need another box, but I’m seriously considering this one. You have good taste and know what we want in our boxes! 😀

  10. BRILLIANT! I can NOT wait!! I have been waiting for a new Quarterly curator that I feel like I would enjoy — this was an easy one. I hope everyone who uses your website and free swap site signs up – a great way to show support to you for all the work you put into this site.

  11. I’m all signed up, can’t wait till Sept. I entered coupon code but it didn’t subtract it right away, but said I had a $5 credit that would be applied to the first box. Is that correct?

  12. OMG, this is freaking EXCITING! I know this will be an AWESOME box, and I subscribed immediately. LOL

  13. This is fantastic!! I just subscribed. I’m incredibly excited for September!!! Congratulations 🙂

  14. I subscribed! After this Ipsy/BAB Lash Out fiasco I guess my only suggestion would be to not include cosmetics made in China (PRC). Before getting into these boxes it was never a concern but now I’m seeing brands that come from there such as NYX and Be A Bombshell.

    • I agree

  15. Congratulations!!!
    I just signed up. So excited to get the box – September is my birthday.
    Who better than you to offer a subscription box….you understand the excitement and addiction as well as we do. 🙂

  16. Congrats on curating your own box full of goodoes n fun is abound. If u can send me a box to review i wpuld be for ever thankful. Your page is the whole reason i fell in love woth subrip

  17. I’m going to go sign up right after I post this comment! You’re taking my Quarterly virginity, I’ve been so good at resisting the Nina Garcia box! I can’t wait until September, I know you will make it great 🙂 congrats Liz!

    • Just signed up! Made me 500% happier that I won’t be charged until the box ships 🙂

  18. I’m signed up. So excited for you. Please do not include nail wraps in the box… ever 🙂

    • Haha – you have my word – no nail wraps 🙂

    • I agree! May I also suggest no tea bags? Even for those who are tea drinkers, there is such an abundance of teas from other boxes.

    • Awww, I like nail wraps (but haven’t had any from boxes) but this is only because I manage to chip nail polish within hours of applying, lol.

      • Samantha – Have you tried at home gel polish? Lasts sooo much longer (2 weeks). That’s why I don’t like getting regular polish. If you’re interested in how it works, check out my blog post on it. My name is the link!

  19. Congrats! Just subscribed! Can’t wait til September!

    • Thanks so much – I’m so excited that the box is a kick-off for fall! 🙂

  20. Awesome! Will there be any personalization or will everyone get the same? I only ask because we have differing views on style (ex: I don’t like gold anything …jewelry, household, etc.) , but I love how detailed your reviews are and that you are particular about ingredients in beauty products!

    • As of right now I don’t believe Quarterly offers customization, so everyone will be getting the same box. (I’ll reach out to them though to see if we can do surveys with subscribers to get preferences though).

  21. I’m super excited. I’d rather get a few great boxes than lots of sad ones. I’m looking forward to your picks.

    • Thank you! I hope you love the box! 🙂

  22. So excited for this! I love your website and find that I agree with almost all of your opinions on products! Can’t wait to see what you pick for us

    • I think it sounds like you’ll love the box then! I’m excited to hear what you think once it ships! 🙂

  23. Congrats Liz! I am sooo glad to see all of your hard work is paying off for you and with your love and experience with sub boxes I have no doubt that this will be an amazing box!! I signed up about an hour ago, as soon as I received the newsletter in in box…I didn’t even put one moments thought into it! I hope your box sells out and there is a waiting list just to show them they made the right choice in chosen you for the next curator ( although I’m sure they already know they made a wise choice) I can’t wait for the first box and again, congrats on this amazing new venture….you’ve certainly earned it!!!

  24. Sounds cool! I would want to know approx. box value and maybe one spoiler.

  25. Congratulations! That is so exciting! I signed up right away. 🙂

    Thanks for the rare quarterly code!

  26. This is such exciting news!!! I signed up automatically and I seriously cannot wait to see what’s in your 1st box! My birthday is in September so, this is definitely going to be such a nice gift to myself!!

  27. Congratulations!! This is so awesome for you. Of course I have already subscribed :0). Can’t wait to see what you select!!

  28. I already emailed you but I had to reiterate how excited I am about your subscription box!! It was a no-brainer for me to sign up immediately. Congratulations on this AMAZING opportunity Liz!! 🙂

  29. Can you say “no brainer?” This is awesome! Can’t wait to see what you curate for the first box!

  30. That is so great! I’m so pleased you managed to parlay all those free subscription boxes into a new business venture! Now that’s totally using your head!

    Will this be a generic one-size-fits-all box, or will there be a questionnaire to personalize the contents for subscribers?

    Again, congrats! You figure out how to go beyond mere affiliate links! Is a cosmetic line in the future?

  31. If we sign up when do we get charged? $50 is a lot to give up for something Im not going to get for 2.5 months…I really want to sign up but I may have to wait a bit is all if we are charged immediately.

    • I just signed up, and it told me I won’t be charged until my box is shipped!

    • Thanks for asking the question that was on my mind, as well.

      I said “no new boxes” but I am planning to cancel several more of mine in the next 2-3 months and I feel like that would open up some room in the budget. Because I know that, with this one, we’d actually get a good value and no chemical-smelling makeup and probably no foil packets and maybe no notebooks/notepads as filler, either (just guessing based on Liz’s past reviews). And, if something really isn’t to my taste for whatever reason, I can always swap it here. Plus, it’s less than $20 a month if you average it out.

      Not being charged until around the time it ships really helps, too.

      • Maybe that should be the slogan of the box “No foil packets!” 🙂

        • Love that slogan! I just subscribed and can’t wait!

  32. I saw this post and told myself I don’t need another box and I was right. I don’t NEED another box but I sure WANT another box. So I subscribed. I can’t wait! Thanks for the code to go along with what I’m sure will be a great box.

  33. Congrats!! This look like very exciting box to have, and I already am a long time Quarterly subscriber and thought no other curator can tempt me.

  34. Whoohoo! Congrats! I can’t wait for the first spoiler to come out.

  35. I’m sure you’ll do a really great job curating! Can I ask if there will be food items in your box?

    • Food items definitely won’t be the focus of the box. There might be the occasional item, but food won’t be regularly featured. Hope that helps!

      • So glad to hear this. Because of so many food allergies, food in subscription boxes always worries me.

  36. I signed up and cannot wait. I know you will curate a great box because you know what it’s like getting not so great boxes. I definitely know that I won’t be disappointed!

    • Thank you so much – I hope everyone loves the box (or at least discovers a few new items they love each box that makes it worth it for them!)

  37. Congrats Liz!! It’s like 2 of my favorite worlds colliding (but w/ a better outcome). Yours is the only blog I read, and have already shared the good news thru every social avenue I use. Looking forward to the debut box!

    • Wow – thank you so much Eva!

  38. So I told myself 2 Quarterly Boxes was enough and have been really good resisting the recent batch of new curators…absolutely could not resist this! I love your blog and this you are a perfect fit for Quarterly. And thanks for including a coupon code, too!

  39. So amazing, exciting, and deserved Liz!!! Can’t wait to get it!

  40. Awesome Liz! I was actually thinking the other day if you’d ever curate your own box!! I’ll definitely think about signing up!

  41. I can’t wait!! I’ve already signed up!!! congrats on this box Liz 🙂

    • Thanks so much! 🙂

  42. I’m really excited to hear about your experience. I keep thinking about doing a clothes box with fair trade, American made Eco friendly clothes from boutiques. I am excited to see your experiences!

  43. WOW! That’s great Liz! Congrats! Since you know so much about boxes I’m sure that your box will be a great success! 🙂

    Thank you for the coupon code …..

    Any idea of the approximate values of this box ….?

    I just need to cancel a few of my other boxes so I can afford to ad this one to my list 🙂

    • Thanks Lily! I don’t have an approximate value of the box to share yet, but I can assure you that I will do everything I can to make sure it’s a great value box.

      • Thanks 🙂 – The only reason why I asked, is you mentioned mascara and candles ( as an example ) I don’t use any of those.

  44. OMG!!!!! Girl you rock!!!! This is awesome. You are like one of the girls and understand us. I’m am so excited. I’m going to go broke but I love it.
    I’m so proud of you and I’m so happy for all of us that are going to benefit from your lengthy knowledge.
    Thanks Hun!!!

    • Thank you so much Cyndi! I hope you love the box! 🙂

  46. Yay! Just signed up! Congratulations Liz. You’ve been my guru on sub boxes and I am so looking forward to your box 🙂

    • Thanks Sasha! 🙂

  47. Wow, what a surprise! Congratulations in this new venture. Quick question for you….if there is a brand in your own box that appears in a box that you review, will you disclose that?

    • Hi Lisa,

      I definitely want to be as transparent as possible, so if I’m reviewing a box that has a product from a brand that was featured in an MSA Quarterly box, I can make sure to mention it. Is that what you mean?

  48. This is so exciting! I can’t wait for the first box! Congrats on such an awesome and fun opportunity!

    • Thanks Trish! 🙂

  49. Congrats Liz! That is awesome!

  50. I know I already emailed you but I am thrilled – for you and for us! I was just telling my husband people needed to be hiring you for consulting. Can’t wait!

    • Thank you SO much Erin! You are too kind! 🙂
