Read the complete My Subscription Addiction disclosure.


  1. I just cancelled my Ipsy subscription. Even after answering all of their profile questions I received products I would never use or in shades that were way off. I went ahead and gave it a 2nd month & that one was even worse.

    I started subscribing to Walmart’s subscription box which is sent out quarterly. It is well worth the $5.00 spent!!! Today I just discovered the Amazon beauty box for Prime members. Pay $11.99 and get $11.99 credit to purchase an item in the full size. I’m excited ti get that one!

    Now if I would just pay closer attention I just might be able to get a Target beauty box before they run out!!

    • I love Ipsy. I guess so many people and as many opinions. Theres a monthly Sub box from its awesome for 12

  2. Just wanted to say that Birchbox changed their rewards program and reviews no longer earn you points.. bummer.. Still a great subscription service though!

    • I just received my first Birchbox and yes you still do get points for reviewing their products. Maybe they changed the way it looks but you definitely get points for your review.

      • You only get points for the first 5 products you review. After those 5 products (basically your first box) no points for reviews. I’ve been with Birchbox over 2 years and their rewards program was a huge part of that. The changes they made to the rewards program were very disappointing.

    • this is incorrect. You get 10 pts for every review. I got $5 in points for the last box i got.

  3. I cannot get the mystery guild book club to come up for a $1. Is anyone else having issues?

  4. I just thought I would mention that Gwynnie Bee isn’t actually free. They check your account for $79 and if its not in there, they won’t send it. They also hold that amount out of your account so its unusable until you return stuff I believe.

  5. I cannot get the link for Match up (eSalon) to work.. any idea why? It takes me to the page but when I click on “Get It Now” nothing happens

  6. Saffron fix offers a free trial. It’s an Indian meal box, $48-$60 usually (which, considering the price of a meal at Indian restaurants where I live, is a steal). Haven’t gotten mine yet, but reviews look promising.

  7. FYI: The code for half off the BoCandy box only netted me $1.49. Not even half off the shipping. Plus, their landing page gives a 20% off code for the first box, but when I entered that one, it came back invalid. Hope the actual box experience is better!

    • same here

  8. I’ve tried the Nadine West box and I will admit that some of the things they send are very nice although the price point for some of the jewelry you could probably find a similar piece for a lower price in Target or Charlotte Russe. When I first started with Nadine West, (which only about 5 or 6 months ago), their selling point was it was absolutely FREE the only thing you pay for is the items you KEEP. I LOVED that as you get to try the items for a few days, if you don’t like them just put them back in the postage paid envelope and send it back no commitment! Two months ago they changed that. Now the thing is every month before they ship to you, your account will be charged $6.50 shipping. If you keep something from the shipment, they will credit the $6.50 toward the price of what you kept. What they don’t immediately spell out if is you DON’T keep anything then you are just out $6.50. Now I am not above paying for a subscription but I don’t want to pay for something and I don’t have anything to show for it. If you look at the FAQs page it says if you are not keeping anything you may want to update your style profile but my thing about that is, I KNOW my style so there’s nothing to change and they don’t give descriptions for their style categories (ex: Classy, Romantic, Vintage. etc). What I selected when I first signed up is my style. I will be cancelling my subscription shortly

  9. I just got my first Graze box (the free one). It’s a good mix of things I would have chosen for SURE off their list of food and things I wouldn’t have picked myself. I tried the one I was least excited about getting first, and it was actually pretty good. I also love that it showed up in the mail on Monday morning. That was a fantastic surprise! I think I’ll pay for at least one box instead of just nabbing the free sample like I’d thought I might do…

  10. Thanks Liz for posting all of these! I signed up for Julep, Graze, Love with Food, and Bean Box. Here’s my experience:

    Julep: I received the Spring Fling Welcome Box and which included 3 nail polishes and 1 lipgloss. I’m not a fan of lipgloss and it was pretty sheer. I need more color than that. The nail polishes were Vicki, Flora, and Shelly. Vicki is my FAVORITE. It is a bright pink (Liz describes it as flamingo) and I have received a ton of compliments on it. It’s a creme and dries to a beautiful shine. Flora (a sparkly purple) was too sheer for me…it looked streaky after two coats and had a weird matte look to it. I haven’t had a chance to try out the Shelly color yet, which is a light blue.

    When I went to cancel the subscription, I found out the site says that you have to call to cancel. GRRR. Not cool. But I decided to send them an email since it was the weekend saying I wanted to cancel and just like that, they deactivated my account. I was really happy I didn’t have to jump through hoops and that even though it says to call, I could cancel via email instead. I may resubscribe in the future based on that and the fact that I loved that Vicki polish so much.

    Graze: I like the idea of Graze and the small price point, but ultimately the snacks are tiny and don’t last a heartbeat around here. I decided to pass on this one. Cancelling was super easy–just log in and cancel.

    Bean Box: I admit it. I didn’t think about the word bean when I signed up for this one. I don’t have a bean grinder, so I now have 4 packs of coffee beans here that I am not sure what to do with. I don’t want to buy a grinder just for that.

    When I went to cancel, I was asked to log in using my email and an order number. I couldn’t find my order number right away, but there’s a link on the page that you can click and they will send you your order number. It came to my email right away and I was able to log in without any problems. It was easy to cancel as well.

    Love With Food: I really liked the Love with Food box. It seemed like a lot of product to me (even though I saw in the reviews some people felt it was light). I enjoyed trying new things and getting full size snacks.

    I was pretty tempted to stay with Love with Food. I was wishing I could afford the annual subscription to make it $10 a box and a little better value, but ultimately the $12 convinced me to cancel. When I went to cancel, they gave me an offer to take $2 off the box, earn 200 points, and they would donate 2 boxes of food. I decided to stick around for another month since the $10 price point was met. I am looking forward to seeing what I get next month!

    Thanks again Liz! I would not have been able to try these brands if it weren’t for My Subscription Addiction. 🙂

    • Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with these boxes!! 🙂

    • I called the Julep number after hours(PST) and left a message with my info to cancel and I received a confirmation email the next day.

    • Don’t know if you still have the beans sitting around your house or not but I thought I would offer a solution on how to grind them without buying a coffee grinder… You can just put them in a blender! I found that out when I ended up when a fancy bag of coffee beans when an organic grocery store closed down by my house, bought them for cheap but couldn’t grind them lol my dad told me that fancy trick and it worked! Haha

  11. I have received 2 months worth of Love with Food Boxes. I really do like this subscription. I have ordered 2 of the foods I have received already online. A great way to discover new things!

  12. TOTALLY regretting trying out Honest Co.! Thought I’d get the trial to gift to my sis at her upcoming shower, so she could try it out. Did not realize you couldn’t easily cancel online–kicking myself for not checking that first. Waited on hold for over 12 minutes before someone picked up the phone (not to mention time spent looking online for the instructions how to cancel and actually one the phone with their customer service rep).

    I mentioned my unhappiness about waiting so long and she said the usual wait time is five minutes, which, in my opinion is still way too long. If you can’t answer your calls sooner, then you should offer the option to cancel online!

    • I’m thinking of trying Honest Co. until I read your comment. Now I’m debating. We’re the items you received good?

      • I ordered the sample box with the trial sizes of lotion, body wash, counter top spray etc. it was well worth the 5.95 (for shipping) they ask when you choose any of the sample choices offered. I was impressed with the selection and quality. My first order will arrive next week.

      • I tried out Honest and absolutely love it! You don’t have to order every month; if you download the app it is SO easy to shop, place orders, move your ship date. I don’t have the monthly “baby bundle”, but if I had a baby, I absolutely would. So I order household and personal care products. One of the things I love most (besides the products which are truly awesome), is the bundle is $39.95 which is 5 of most any products u want – so I get all of my expensive stuff there. Then you can add up to 3 more products for 20% off, which is great bc if u spend $50, u get free shipping. I usually only have to order about every 2 months bc the cleaners, laundry tablets, etc – come in HUGE quantities.

        I’m not at all a monthly subscription person, I rarely shop online – but unless this company drastically changes I’ll be a customer for life. The person before, all I can say is if you don’t follow instructions or read everything – you may be disappointed. When I first received my sample shipment there was very clear I struggle instructions to go to the website, click on “contact us” and send a request with your order # to cancel. With everything in life we should follow instructions 🙂

  13. Anyone try Bean Box? I like the idea and love my coffee but am not sure if it’s worth it.

  14. You have to post the lovewithweed box. Have to! And you have to do it now because I’m sure it will only be up for one day!

    Oh my goodness was that too funny.

  15. I just signed up for Graze because of this post and the free box. Does anyone know how soon I can cancel? I do not want to keep the subscription until I try it out. I read the FAQs but they didn’t answer my question. I signed up about an hour ago but am wondering if I can go ahead and cancel now but still receive the first box? Anyone have any idea?

    • Have you logged into the site yet? You can set the frequency of your delivery to as little as once a month so that should give you enough time to try it before you get charged again. Just click on “manage this box” once you are logged in.

      • Thanks Kristin! Changed to monthly.

    • I have used it for a while and recently changed to the new share box. I like it so much better and you can choose which things you want to receive!

    • They charge your account on monday, so cancel around Thursday or Friday of the week before you are scheduled to recieve your box, it will show up the Monday of that week. When you go to cancel it will ask you if you want to get another box for $5.99, and if you say yes they automatically discount the box for you.

  16. This is my 3rd try. I give up after this LOL.

    Green Kids Craft – I’m not surprised with the shipping charge on the Green Kids Craft. I tried them out for 3 months with a Living Social voucher and had to pay an additional $13.50 for the shipping cost which works out to $4.50 a box. This is why I read all vouchers very carefully before signing up. FYI – I signed up for Escape Monthly using a LS voucher around the same time and wasn’t charged a penny more.

    I redeemed it for the Sept-Nov series. My son hated it and refused to do the last 2 boxes so I cancelled. This required a double opt-out. I emailed them, they emailed me back asking I am sure, and then I emailed them back saying yes. I was really annoyed about that especially since they had my credit card number from paying the shipping.

    Love With Food – I tried the free box in Jan and stay subscribed for Feb & March. My children liked it, but didn’t $12.00 liked it. I think my sister did because I put aside some of the GF snacks for her. It was easy to cancel. Go to your account and click cancel. I had no problems, and will sign up again depending on the spoilers. It was a pleasant, no muss experience.

    Honest Company – Liz used to review her bundles. I think she said it covered most if not all her cleaning needs. Correct me if I am wrong because this was awhile ago. Some of the products can be found in Target if you want to give it a try without a commitment.

    Lets see if this posts.

  17. I’m not surprised with the shipping charge on the Green Kids Craft. I tried them out for 3 months with a Living Social voucher and had to pay an additional $13.50 for the shipping cost which works out to

  18. This is very helpful, thank you! I had already signed up for Graze a couple of days ago after reading your blog of the most recent box bc you mentioned the free month. 🙂

    I’m debating about trying Love with Food and Julep Maven (even though I don’t polish my nails very often and tend to pay for pedis!)

    • I tried both of them and unsubscribed.

      Love with Food was a great deal for $2, but not for $12 or whatever the regular price is. The snacks were good but good enough to make up for the lack of value in the box.

      I was happy to get the Julep box for just $3, though it turned out that I wasn’t thrilled with any of the colors (live and learn). Unsubscribing required a phone call but there was no pressure to stay subscribed. Personally, I think that the mystery boxes they have are a better deal than the subscription. In the last one for $25 I got 4, a top coat, a mascara and a nail polish corrector.

    • I trying Julep and love it! I dont polish my nails much and pay for pedis too. They send you a link for a reveal to view each monthly box and you can switch out polishes for other items like eyeliner or lip gloss. You can also select a beauty mystery box for a surprise which was a good value – for my second box for $20 (3 month sub) I received a lip crayon, nail treatment polish, eye liner, and full size mask. Also came with a free polish I got to pick the color on from an email they sent earlier in the month. Love their oxygen nail treatment in sheer colors. They are always offering good add on deals and sometimes free products. Only downside is it’s only 1 product line so after a year I can see maxing out.

  19. With twin granddaughters on the way I would love to honest. Are there any regular honest members on our board? I would love to hear your comments.

    • I subscribed to Honest for a while. I do not recommend getting the free box above; I did and felt like a sucker later as they frequently have better offers for new members, and you can’t get in on one of those if you’ve gotten the free box (which is not really free since you still pay shipping!). You can only ever get one discount/deal on your account, also. Generally, I think their prices are ridiculously high, and you have to pay shipping, so I ended up canceling — by phone, which is the only way out. It wasn’t difficult, no high pressure salesperson, just inconvenient. Their products are nice, but it wasn’t worth it to me.

      • They are better deals than the free box, but really, best bet is to try Target. The prices are about the same considering you have to pay shipping on the website and you can the try the product without a monthly obligation. But I do have to say, I had a hard time cancelling my subscription. You have to call during their working hours and they did try to keep me so I had to get a bit firm to get them to agree to cancel. We had this subscription for quite a few months so we tried most of their products. The only thing I can recommend is the room sprays. I thought the cleaning supplies were ineffective and the beauty items sub par to other natural brands. And as the other poster stated, they are extremely overpriced. We also had the diaper and wipes service. They were not good. the diapers run small and were three times the prices of other natural diapers. I really tried to like this brand but it just didn’t happen.

    • I’m a regular subscriber to Honest since my first child was born in August, 2013. I love them. I was buying 2 HUGE boxes of Pampers a month (Which is roughly $45 a box after tax), so I decided, although I’d only be saving about $10 a month, why not give Honest a try because I REALLY liked the idea of their diapers not being full of all that plastic and chemicals. I’ve never gone back. My daughter just turned 2, and I have another one on the way, and this one will never see anything but Honest diapers. As far as their cleaning products-I have yet to purchase something that doesn’t get the job done. Although I will say that the glass cleaner is made mostly with vinegar, so if you’re not a fan of that smell, don’t bother with that. lol I love their cleaning products because they actually work, AND I don’t have to worry about my children or pets being affected by them while things are drying, etc. Also a little secret I learned: When I originally went to sign up for the free diaper trial, I didn’t realize I’d have to pay the $5.95 shipping, so I cancelled it and was planning on waiting until I got paid. 15 minutes later, an email showed up giving my free shipping on my first order with a code. I used it on the free trial (Thinking back, I shouldn’t have, but oh well). With the diaper trial, you’ll get 7 diapers and a 10 pack of wipes and they give you 7 days to try it out before they ship you a full bundle and charge you for it. BUT, you can go into your account and “push” your shipment WHENEVER YOU WANT. This goes for ALL Honest bundles. With the essentials trial, you’ll get 5 samples of their 5 best selling essential items: laundry soap, hand soap, shampoo/body wash, bubble bath, and a chapstick is what was in mine I believe. It’s possible these items have changed since then. With the “Health bundle” (I can’t remember what this bundle is called.) you’ll get 2 samples of whatever vitamins or whatever you picked. I have no idea about the formula sample, as this is a fairly new product (I received the email announcing it less than 6 months ago) and I have no child to try it with. haha

      What you need to know that everyone tries to blame them for, when in reality it’s in plain print on the subscription page, everyone just ignores it: Is that after your trial is shipped, you will automatically be enrolled in that “monthly” subscription, and will have to call Honest Support to cancel. (I put monthly in quotations because you can push back your shipments at any time on your account page)

      I hope my TRUE information is helpful to you.

      • Side note: I’ve actually saved MUCH more with Honest than I originally thought I would, as their “month’s worth” of diapers actually last me almost 2 months.

  20. I don’t consider “Green Kids Crafts” a “free” trial subscription. You have to pay $5 to get ONE craft kit – each box is $20 and comes with 3 or 4 craft kits. So basically you are paying full price for one craft kit. It may be a good way of trying out just one kit to see if you like it, but it’s not “free”.
