Subscriber Survey: If You Could Only Subscribe to One Box, Which One?

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

Sunday Subscriber Survey time! If you are a subscription addict, this may be the toughest question ever…

If you could only subscribe to one subscription box, which box would you pick?

I’m seriously having an impossible time with this one! My first thought is that I’d go for a lifestyle/more expensive box if I can only have one. So, FabFitFun, POPSUGAR Must Have, Robb Vices, and Box of Style came to mind. Then I thought, well if I can only have one box, it better be monthly! So I’ve narrowed it down to POPSUGAR or Robb Vices. And that’s as far as I got!

Which box would you pick?

P.S. If you have an idea for a future Subscriber Survey question, let me know in the comments!

  1. Goodbeing is my top choice. I love choosing two of my items and the other three are a surprise. It is always top quality natural based makeup and beauty products.

    I have four other monthly subs that I love, so I hope I never have to choose just one. I’m far too addicted to only have one sub!

    • Mine too! Month after month I’m always blown away and find a use for most (if not all) of the items in my box. It’s nice that we get to pick two of the items and that guarantees I’ll enjoy at least them.

  2. Fabfitfun all the way. I’d make the most out of the add ons, (well, I do already) so that I wouldn’t mind it being quarterly. I love fabfitfun, and am really happy it’s only 4 times a year, but there are always special offers between boxes!! I’ve found with the monthly beauty boxes I end up with just too much beauty stuff in my drawers and on my dresser and still in the boxes… How do people use everything!!??? I mean how many mascaras can one possibly own? Hahaha. I know, some people can never have enough…. And of course, I’d cheat and keep yogi surprise, as a gift box and not call it a sub box, haha!!!

  3. Boxy charm, no doubt!!!

  4. FabFitFun for sure!!!

  5. Just one? Not one per genre? Hmmmmm….. Goodbeing. They have never let me down.

  6. Boxycharm for sure! Amazing products. Amazing value. Great customer service. Love Boxycharm!

  7. I think I’d have to agree with most of the ppl on here and say boxycharm. I’d been watching boxy since September of 2016 and finally bit the bullet and subbed! Aug was my first box and I couldn’t of been more happy! I can’t belive I lived without it for so long!

  8. Popsugar or if FFF was monthly, but for Beauty i love BeautyFix

  9. Litjoy! – the ya version. my favorite book box!

  10. FabFitFun. Runners up would be Rob Vices (way out of my price range though) and if I were male, Bespoke Post

  11. Popsugar

  12. For my lifestyle boxes, I would pick FFF (or Popsugar if I had to have it monthly) .
    If it was a which would I want gifted to me…well GlobeIn or similar as I LOVE them but just can’t afford them right now 🙁 I just love boxes that do good and have such unique (most of the time) products!
    (I do FFF a year ahead IF I can or a good discounted box at a time of FFF or POP)

    If it was only a makeup box…probably vegancuts or goodbeing, trying to stay natural w/ my beauty care 😉
    Man, too many types of boxes and I can only narrow down to 2 of each lol!

    To be fair, atm all I have is FFF but that is due to prepay and being broke lol. If I had more money/ an actual income I would be having more boxes!

  13. Boxycharm has been off the charts and with upcoming spoilers it looks like it will continue to blow my mind for $21!!! Second place is beautydna…

  14. Popsugar is my go to box and favorite gift to give and recieve!

  15. Cozy Reader Club!

  16. I’m a book nerd so I’m going with FairyLoot which is my favorite book subscription box🤓

  17. This sounds harsher than I mean it to be, but up until this season’s spoilers I would have 100% said FFF. Now I’m also feeling the Boxy.

  18. Boxycharm for sure!

  19. Boxycharm!

  20. FabFitFun

  21. This is a hard question. For a quarterly box I like Breo and Causebox. Probably monthly I would go with Popsugar. Oh man, this is tough. I will stop there.

  22. I love Boxycharm, at least for now. Eventually I’ll probably reach palette overload. But the box I’d have the hardest time letting go of would be Field to Cup, my tea sub box.

  23. Robb Vices or Breo. Just one is super hard. Ok, Robb Vices, that’s the one!

  24. BoS – EASY win. I like getting things monthly, but this is worth the wait for quarterly (and I couldn’t justify this one’s price monthly, either).

  25. Boxycharm!

  26. I only got as far as you did Liz….for me it’s Beauty Heroes & MINTD. But, there are definitely others that are my favorite which I didn’t mention since I was *forced* to choose just “one”. 😉

    • I second Beauty Heroes, even though I haven’t pulled the trigger yet, I know its coming soon, and I know I won’t be disappointed.

  27. Boxycharm for my adult daughter and myself but FabFitFun with add-ons come in close second!!

  28. Definitely Boxycharm!

  29. Boxy!

  30. Clean Beauty Box 😍

  31. Pop Sugar

  32. Easy Peasy– FabFitFun!

  33. Tough question! Either PS (if I could snag it at a discount) or FFF (if I had to buy everything at full price). ❤️ lifestyle boxes 😀

  34. I subscribe to many and have dealt with many on product issues etc. With that in mind, the box I would choose is Pop Sugar Must Have. Out of all the boxes, the reason I choose this one is not just because of product selection but the big thing with me is customer service. So many of the boxes that are reviewed at MSA have very bad customer service issues. Pop Sugar Must Have has answered my questions on a timely manner and followed up when needed. In fact one reason I won’t do prepaid subscriptions with some of the box companies is that you get pre-made emails promising a response and weeks later you are still waiting. Customer service is a big thing with me.

  35. This is an easy choice for me, FabFitFun all the way!

    • Yes, me, too!

  36. Luxor

  37. Only Boxycharm. I don’t need another subscription box with Boxy.

  38. Well, I’d have to go Nocturnal Readers Box. New books & goodies every month….I can’t resist!

    But I’d also like to keep my Love Goodly please.


  39. I’m with Liz, it would be a monthly lifestyles box. So I think PSMH. Like Liz, PSMH, FFF, BOS, and RV come to mind, all of which I currently subscribe to!

  40. Boxycharm

  41. Love me some FabFitFun

  42. MINTD

  43. Boxycharm. I can’t resist a great deal.

  44. Wow! I have the same dilemna…PopSugar or Robb Vices. I think I’d have to go with Robb Vices.

  45. Boxycharm

  46. Boxycharm!

  47. Definitely BOXYCHARM ❤️💋

  48. Luxor.

  49. Probably Owlcrate

  50. Boxycharm- hands down!
