Didn’t give a whole lot of credit to this list because they put FabFitFun as #1. I’m about to cancel my subscription before it renews because they have the worst customer service of any company I’ve ever worked with (I’ll be 49 in 2 days, so I’ve worked with A LOT). They claim to have great prices, but I can find all the stuff online individually for similar prices and not have to deal with the company. I love my IPSY. I’m looking for something similar to FabFitFun or Pusheen, not another makeup.


I have had several of these boxes. My favorite is Boxycharm. I get the base and premium monthly. 90 percent of the time I love everything. I have also found many many brands and products that have become a favorite and something I use daily. The pop ups 3 times a yr and the monthly add on is another thing I love. The priced for products I’ve fallen in love with are usually 75% to 90% off. I have the ipsy glam bag too. I actually started my subscription box addiction with the Ipsy glam bag 12$ a month now and FFF. I have received a feeling glam bag plus and glam bag plusX I am going to be canceling my ipsy. Boxycharm is 25 a month for Base 35 a month premium and 4 times a year the base is added to and becomes the Luxe and its about 50$ I believe. Once again so worth it. You can chose 1 choice with the base box or to 2 with premium and I honestly can’t remember if luxe is 2 or 3 choices. You can also change what products you want more or less of. Ect. I’ve had the birch box and the glossy box too. I didn’t care for either one. The babe box is decent for the price. Honestly ad of late I like it more than Ipsy. But since there are 2 or 3 new ones on this list I’d like to try I’m going to cancel ipsy and babe for the time being. I’ll probably continue to be part of the Boxycharm ” family ” as long as I can

I’ve subscribed to all the above and have canceled them all except for the Kevia Journee Box. I’m so sick of getting water bottles, coffee cups, useless books, blank journals and non full size beauty items that I canceled them all due to lack of excitement and declining values.

The Kevia boxes are fabulous! Unique items from all over the world. Gorgeous jewelry and no repeat items.

I do love Bombay & Cedar, but have noticed since covid the items have become boring and similar each month. The values of the items seem very inflated too. It makes me sad to have had to cancel that one.


After being a subscriber to causebox for over two years, I just cancelled. They have started repeating items that were literally just in boxes two boxes ago. They sent me defective market add on items and refuse to refund me or replace them. Their customer service has really gone downhill very quickly. I used to really love the items, but they are all pretty lackluster. Add in all of the skin care items that people requested not to have and I’m done. I’m glad I enjoyed it while I did, but I no longer recommend the box.


Good to know!

It’s not on the list, but I LOVE my Smartass and Sass subscription box. Great, fun products I never would’ve found elsewhere.


I completely agree. Smartass & Sass should definitely be on this list (for those of us that enjoy a bit a snark and profanity on occasion)


I recently got my first StitchFix and I was so impressed with my stylist. Literally all five items were something that I would have picked for myself. I would have kept all five, but two of the items were almost exactly like garments that I already own–my stylist was that good lol. I got a couple of referrals, so I bought some jeans from the shop. Everything fits so well. I’m looking forward to getting another box for spring.


well now I’m confused because this says 2021 reader choice awards but a lot of the comments are from last year + year before


i feel like no one really likes these boxes anymore….especially reading the comments on half these boxes. Causebox, bombay & cedar, ipsy, glossybox. Everyone complains about them in the comments about how horrible they are! tbh I didn’t see one good thing written about any of them so kinda shocking to read any of this lol.
Give us the good boxes!


My wife and daughter typically split the contents of the causebox and they still love it!

My comments didn’t post


I only agree with Ipsy and Boxycharm. Why isn’t their any reviews for Lashybox? I get the new magnetic subscription and I love it. This is my second month. Also earfleek is a low cost subscription and it’s fun. Alot of this boxes cost to much. I get Fabfitfun and am not renewing its misleading they say thier products in the box have a higher value then they really do. Example headbands, hair scruchies, coasters that have values of 50 dollars or greater. Alot of subscription boxes do this but FFF really inflates it. You do get the value of the box.


I totally agree!! The last 2 FFF boxes have sucked. I cancelled this morning.


I agree about FFF too! I just cancelled my summer box and whole subscription! They keep putting in duplicates from previous boxes. Quality has really gone down.

Pamela burris

I totally agree last 2 fff boxes have been awful and I never get my addons sick of it will be canceling this time


I canceled my FFF after the last two boxes, too! They were awful. Why do they think I need a plastic cactus cup?!


I canceled FFF as well. Each box over the last year was just more disappointing.


An hour after customization opens everything worthwhile is sold out.


I love Ipsy! I was doing Birchbox, FFF & Ipsy and finally cancelled the other two. I just personally think Ipsy offers the best products for me.


I have been receiving the Ipsy Glam Plus bag for just over a year now. I was delighted during the first few months of my subscription; I received many new and exciting products that I couldn’t wait to try. One of my favorite parts about the box was getting a cute new makeup bag every month because I use them all the time. But after a while, I noticed I was receiving the same types of products every month. I went to my profile to set new preferences for what I’d like to receive in my box, but the types of products failed to differ from what I was previously receiving. I highly recommend this box if you’re looking to add to your makeup collection for cheap. I do not recommend this box for anyone looking to subscribe for longer than 6-8 months.


Had Ipsy for about 6 months got tired of getting a lot of the same face cleansers that i put i don’t care for the make up was pretty good only a few things that were meh. cancelled that and tried FFF. I Love it i have received 3 boxes so far and am very happy with them, there are a couple if items i would not use but I gifted them to friends and family who did so win win in my opinion. I also like that is a variety of stuff not just makeup and face stuff. The only draw back for me is i am impatient to get the box! 🙂 Thinking about trying cause box or single swag but can’t decide which one..


Sunday Riley no longer has a box.


I’m gonna miss PopSugarMustHave box. I really liked that one.

Cheryl !

I will NOT miss Popsugar.. I canceled when they raised their prices and I started to pay nearly double.. However, when they announced the last box, I ordered it when they had a coupon for sentimental reasons.. They billed me and NEVER sent my box.. I contacted every email address I could and no one ever cared to respond.. It was too late to get my money box because I waited so long giving them a chance to make it right.. TERRIBLE business practices.. I really want my money back or the box I paid for. grrrr!!

Danielle Hamilton

I have the same problem with Ipsy sending me the same things over and over again. I get the Glam Bag and Glam Bag Plus and have been getting the small one 3yrs and the bigger one since it first came out about 11/2 yrs. I’m not sure why we even fill out profile for likes and dislikes or answer the reviews because I’ve gotten a black liquid eyeliner in BOTH bags at the same time more than once and black liquid eyeliner in at least one of them for 6months straight. I feel like this is robbing me of spot could be getting a new product. Who in the world needs or could use the 15 eyeliners I’ve gotten now?! And I sent a message to Ipsy about it to get the response of they don’t see my profile in their records or know who I am… Really??? They’ve known who I was at billing time for 3yrs now!! It’s so dang frustrating that I just cancelled my small Ipsy and will see if the Plus continues to act up. They need a better system or at least apply the system they say they have. The repeats in my are just beyond ridiculous. Just wanted to share that with you. Thank you. 😊

Tonya Molina

This is my same complaint with Ipsy.
And when if you email support, you get the same copy and paste answer.
Done with them…….Not to mention when I purchase something addition like a beautiful palette and it comes broken they do not do anything to correct it.


At least you got your bag :-/
I have been arguing with Ipsy for 2 months and they finally agreed to send me a replacement bag for the November bag they never shipped me. And they still havent shipped that one! I paid for add ons as well. They have HORRIBLE customer service. They pretty much stole my money at this point. I cancelled my subscription with Ipsy. Im wayyy over them. Hello Boxycharm!!


Nope! I definitely don’t agree with this list.


Jenn, I’m looking for other options and would love to hear the names of a couple you’d recommend beyond this list. Thank you!

I found Tribe Beauty back In 2017 & never looked back! My tribe’s customer service is phenomenal!! I sub to 3 boxes but have dabbled in most beauty boxes. Ipsy Glam Bag-Love their add-on option yet this raises the cost per month significantly. Not worth the sub-par experience with the curation/customer service. Plus the bag quality has gone downhill. The other one box is Allure. At their new price point the quality/value of each item is extremely high end. However you get a lot of skin care and serums. Which some love (I do at nearly 40.) It all depends what you prefer. With Tribe Beauty you get a full-size immersive whole “face in a box” of high value items and usually one body care item. No fillers or junk. You have access to the website to buy full-size products at a wholesale price pt. There are flash sales and add-ons. There are mini fridges!! Plus you can customize one item each month. Tribe Beauty has won several awards hails from Canada yet ships worldwide. I have zero complaints after 3 years. The Company itself sets high standards for customer service, quality and transparency supporting women owned companies, small business, BLM & encouraging entrepreneurs to dream big!

I’m surprised mintMongoose is not listed. I actually quite like it with the price point I pay and the pieces of jewelry are nice and I love how personal it is.

Jessi Whaley

Me too! And Earfleek ! Less than 4 bucks a month for a pair or earrings. You pick your style and then can vote on the designs! Also, decocrated! Has the best holiday decor and everything always compliments each other. I have Ipsy, Mint Mongoose,Earfleek, and decorcrated!

Ashleigh C.

Vivian K, I was looking for it too! I love my Mintmongoose subscription and the customer service is phenomenal!! Seriously one of my all time favorites. I currently have FFF, Causebox, Ipsy+, GoldieBoxed & Mintmongoose. I dropped Bombay&Cedar Quarterly even though I was grandfathered in the lower price. Thinking about the JourneeBox… I really miss PSMH.


I am totally not happy with BoxyCharm/Boxyluxe anymore since their products seems to be of lesser quality even though they have the same brand sold at stores for example Sephora. Sometimes I would get some items which I have bought before in Sephora but somehow theirs seem to be of lesser quality even though it is the same packing and brand name. Furthermore, they seem always to include more and more Made in China products be it eyeshadow or lipstick or face creams and I would not ever put those on my face, as China products are notoriously known to contain ingredients not safe to use like for example high lead content. So beware of these even though they use the gimmick of full size products. And also, their website do not allow you to review anything less than 4 stars or 3 stars.


Same, it isn’t worth it. I have used one thing from my first box and then everything else is just sitting in my drawer!

Jocelyn Mel

Say G-bye to PopSugar. It’s no more.

Alex Ethridge

Ipsy was my first subscription and I loved it. It’s great for the price but you get what you pay for and that is all sample size products. I switched over to Boxy Charm for $10/15 more and it’s AMAZING! You get full size products and the box values for sometimes over $300. You can’t beat that. I get anything from Tarte to Nars to all kinds of really great high-end cosmetic, skin care, and hair care brands. I just signed up for ScentBird today and I’m really excited. I’ll be getting fragrances by Versace and Gucci for super cheap. I realize they’re small but I don’t need a lot and I’ll be able to swap between fragrances. I thought about Fab, Fit, Fun but that’s a little bit more than I want to spend for products I may not want.


I cancelled my ipsy as it seemed that the items were getting smaller and smaller and wasn’t worth it in cad dollars. Instead signed up up for fabfitfun and causebox


Should also mention the ipsy I did have was the basic bag as that’s all we can get in Canada. I now have FFF, causebox, boxycharm and boxycharm premium


You should definitely try the Allure box at only $15 a month and three of the items are full sized with 5 or 6 total i beleive. I live it and its all Allures favorites which is a Awesome deal in my opinion.
