  1. Has Sunday Riley ended? I try the link in reviews and the Page is not found. Also, has anyone received shipping for Bombay and cedar limited box? Thanks

  2. I got last year’s Holiday Box from White Willow, a Canadian box. It’s in the same caters these IMHO. Was looking for the Mother’s Day box, but you know, pandemic.

    • Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll add White Willow to the list!

  3. Paradise-Delivered reminds me of Pop Sugar by looking at their reviews. I know nothing about the box, just happened to come across it on Facebook and checked it out. I may give it a try.

    • Paradise Delivered looks like SinglesSwag. The same type of products and brands, even the occasional book. I wouldn’t be surprised if it weren’t the same group of people behind it.

    • Thanks for the heads up on Paradise-Delivered! We’ll check it out!

  4. JourneeBox or Causebox, absolutely

  5. I finally caved and subscribed to Margot Elena. Every time I saw a review I regretted not subscribing sooner. My FabFitFun annual subscription will end with the fall box so maybe I’ll just hold on to this one in its place. I’ve tried the Lollia products and they are great so I think I’ll really like this.

    • Same. I’ll spend 59 on ipsy add ons but kept thinking the margot box was too expensive. Yet I love everything Margot Elena makes. So I finally did what I wanted all along! I hope they keep putting in the little extra items like kimonos and journals etc

  6. I still haven’t found what I’m looking for. I’m not subscribing to another box until something exciting comes around.

    • Me too. This list shows me that there really isn’t a replacement for PSMH. Sigh. Most of these boxes I tried and dropped at some point.

      • I agree. It’s sad but none of these come close to replacing PopSugar. I am really going to miss it.

  7. When will Margo Elena ship to Canada???? I LOVE that box! 😔

  8. Am I the only person that’s surprised PopSugar ended BEFORE Box of Style?

    • That’s a resounding NO! I thought the very same thing.

  9. Oceanista is amazing. I canceled Beachly and started getting Oceanista instead. So far have loved everything in the boxes I have received. The owner has a Facebook group and is very interactive with her customers. Love everything about it ❤️

    • We’ll add Oceanista to the list. Thank you, Lisa!

  10. Earth Love also looks like a great box! I have been keeping my eye on spoilers and I like it so far!

    • I second Earth Love! It is a very thoughtful and useful creation every time; a great mix of beauty, jewelry, home goods etc. Can’t wait for the upcoming Summer box 🙂

    • Thanks for the Earth Love tip! We’ll add it to the list!

  11. Beware of BoS’s shady billing and customer service issues.

  12. IMO, there are 2, which, when combined, come up to being close to what PSMH was.

    They are Margot Elena and Beachly.

    I’ve had problems with ME’s CS, though.

    Beachly, OTOH, has great CS and lots of info on the products.

    I can’t recommend FFF for any reason after multiple errors in billing and damaged products received. I realize YMMV.

    • I am still waiting for my ME box. It seems that YOU CAN’T CHANGE YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS ON THE MARGOT ELENA SITE!!! You have to call customer service directly. I hope I get a replacement box, as I don’t live in AZ any more. I am very confused that the ME site didn’t mention anywhere that you can’t change your shipping address at all unless you contact CS, but when you check your account everything looks correct. Sorry about the caps, but I think it’s a really big deal to have the correct shipping address for a relatively expensive box.

  13. Margot Elena and Journee all the way!

    • Journee looks like one I might have to watch!

  14. I highly suggest the Margot Elena box if you like body care and pretty things that smell nice.

  15. What a great post! So happy to have the suggestions.

    • Thanks, Tiffany! ❤️

  16. Love Margot Elena. 💙

  17. JourneeBox looks gorgeous! Really considering trying it.

    • JourneeBox is amazing! Kevia does a phenomenal job with the curation and everything is always so beautiful. Journee and Bombay & Cedar are my two favorites. Margot Elena is fantastic too.

    • If I had to choose just one subscription to keep, it would always be JourneeBox, hands down. Sooooo good.

    • And their CS is spectacular!

  18. Margot Elena is so good, even though it’s mostly beauty & not as much lifestyle. Having a little stash has come in handy for last-minute co-worker gifts.

  19. What happened with the singles swag reviews? None have been been posted for months

    • I noticed that whoever was reviewing that box was only reviewing that box and no other boxes. So maybe she is not with MSA anymore so nobody else reviews it. For the record, I wouldn’t recommend this box to anyone

      • I noticed that too and others I look for.

  20. I was going to give the singleswag box a try at the 50% off the first box, but the coupon is old and no longer valid 😢. Oh well… Not yet ready to try a new box.

    • Thanks for catching, Janet! A 40% off coupon has been updated.

      • Oooh, now I’m tempted again. Hmmmm
        Thank you!
