The Best Subscription Boxes $50+

That wraps up our list of the Best Splurge-Worthy Subscription Boxes! Did your favorites make the list?

Written by Anna Reilly

Anna Reilly

Anna loves collecting little treasures, be they pop-culture finds, handmade mementos, or new potions to put in her makeup bag. Beauty boxes got her interested in the subscription world, but now she’s swooning for all things kawaii!


  1. I have a charge on my credit card for 34.99, and haven’t received anything from your company.
    Please follow through and tell me what this is for.

  2. I think OuiPlease has really done a great job this last year and the men’s box is also great. I have an annual to both and feel that the items are good quality and Ashley at OuiPlease is very helpful.

    • I second Ashley’s customer care!

  3. I receive Causebox and have received FabFitFun, and based on those two I’d put Breo on its own list. Not just because they’re totally different products, but because the RVs are almost all spot on. I’ve received items from FFF that I’ve really enjoyed but come on…we know we can get many of them on Amazon for 25% of their stated RV. Not so with Breo. Causebox is basically a donation.

  4. My favorite luxe subscription is Luxe Provence. Great customer service and everything I have received has been amazing and to my taste.

  5. Luxe Catch sends great stuff to the reviewer on this site but different things to subscribers – even if they have the same style profile. They don’t seem to actually follow your style profile and they certainly don’t follow your size profile. I tried for three months with this box and got items sized too small or not styled to my style profile at all. I would not subscribe to this box unless you add very sure of your sizes across all of their brands and you don’t mind getting clothes that don’t fit your style at all that you can’t return or exchange.

  6. Zoe’s Box of Style has been on the decline for years. My sense is that Rachel has either stepped away from curating it…..or has decided to up her profit margins. I just checked the Fall Box of Style and was similarly disappointed. Come on Rachel….get back to the basics of your earlier boxes several years ago!

  7. I chose Rachel Zoe Box of Style $349 one year pre pay . The promotion for new subscribers included the Echo Look. I love this thing! The content of the box was just okay. Summer 2019 a sad disappointment as it included a beach towel wrapped in cheap plastic that retails for over $200. The BLACK macrame’ hand bag for summer was ill received as well. I didn’t feel like it went with the summer season. In my opinion, both the beach towel and black handbag are just fillers for lack of imagination or an item of real substance. The plastic earrings are cute. You can call them Italian acetate if you want, I call it what it is: plastic. They come from USA Georgia. They are so two years ago that I already had a pair from Madewell for half the price. I won’t be renewing the subscription.

    • Acetate is a kind of plastic. A specific kind, with specific polymers making it up and specific properties. It is also very trendy right now in jewelry items.

  8. Does anyone have any suggestions or favorites in the Luxe subscriptions?

    • Sunday Riley is the only one of these I get. I highly recommend it!

      • Hi Lynda, I was thinking about subscribing to the Sunday Riley Sub… I LOVE their skin care products. You really think it’s worth it? You’re absolute FAVORITE Sub box?

        • Sorry. Just saw this. Yes, I feel it is worth it yes, it is my absolute favorite. Did you subscribe?

    • Happy Rebel Box! I’ve been subscribing since Winter 2016 and I’ve never been disappointed.

    • I have been impressed with BoxyLuxe. Some of my fave products came from their boxes. Pop Sugar has also been impressive. Love many of their items. If you love perfumes and bath products, Margot Elena is awesome. I also love Ahh Sugar – not sure if it is considered a luxe box but it def gives you luxe bath and showers. I can’t think of FFF as luxe. It more grab bag than high end. CauseBox has some lovely things and several misses, but at least you feel like you did something good by purchasing the box. I really want to try Oui Please.

  9. How is 5th avenue style here. I have been waiting for boxes for over a year and a half with no response and I am out thousands. I am awaiting a response after getting the BBB and New York Attorney General involved

    • I was wondering how that was there also. It’s not even reviewed any more. Thought they went out of business.

    • OMG! Thats terrible! Not going to ever subscribe based on your experience.

    • I also am waiting for a box and Better Business Bureau stated they did not receive any response from 5th Avenue and nothing more they can do. My next step was going to be the Attorney General. Are you having any luck?

  10. I cannot believe you put 5th Avenue Style on this list! Go back and read the reviews from all the people who never got what they ordered!

    • This comment is SO TRUE!!!! I wish I could thumbs this up! 5th Avenue Style should be on another sort of list!

      • I thought the same thing. I was actually going to go back and see if they had changed their ways.

  11. Hey so about the Sunday Riley box every time I go to order it the only country available in drop down section is USA 🇺🇸 so I don’t think they ship worldwide it’s seems to only be within the US just thought you might like to know so you can correct that, It got me super excited just to get bummed out again!

    • Thanks for letting us know!
