  1. Oh look all the big boxes won since there were zero categories for smaller boxes to be in.

    Looks like a paid ad and not an actual award of anything. Disappointed.

  2. Thanks for the list!
    It’s a reference to try new subs!

  3. Any boxes to do with women, we got pretty much the same results, just in different orders: fff, popsugar, boxy, Ipsy, rzbos… I had hoped to get one or two suggestions for a different box. Oh well.

    • I feel like next year there needs to be a “Best Box No One Knows About” category to highlight some under-the-radar options. 🙂

      • Love this idea!

      • I actually recommended they do an under-the-radar category on their survey last year! Hopefully next year they’ll include that category. 🙂

  4. Really disappointed in FFF right now. My box should have shipped by the 15th and I was sent an email saying it was delayed with no definite timeline on when it might be coming. This was my first and will likely be my last time getting this box. There are just too many other options out there.

  5. Disappointed that FFF is first. After subbing to multiple boxes (all the ones listed) for several years, I’ve come to resent FFF for their deceptive advertising and low quality lifestyle items.
    MSA has blown up…hopefully they can use this data to increase revenue with their affiliate programs 😊 I find their ever improving site and content valuable!

  6. I’m struggling to remember all of the categories we voted on but wasn’t there one like “My one and only” as in the one sub box you would keep if you had to cut them all down to only one? I think it was the last one we chose in the list. None of the ones listed above look that that….??

    • Hi! There were two of these categories, “one and only” and also “your first subscription box”. You are right that they’re not included in the awards posts linked here, but we still plan to share those results with everyone for fun! 🙂 Coming soon!

      • Cool. Thanks for the update!

  7. I love Fabfitfun. I have been a subscription box enthusiast for years, but this one is truly a joy! It’s a nice mix of lifestyle and beauty with quality products. Blows the socks off Box of Style.

  8. Glad to see FFF IS #1🥰
    To bad new beauty test tube didn’t make the list they’re awesome 🌺

    • It’s on a few of the other lists. I like that one too, seems like recently they have upped their game with the rebranding and serums! 🙂

      • I see that they’re on the other lists! Yes I agree they have become incredibly awesome!
