I would like to get my sister a sampling box for her birthday. I would like to just make one payment for a year. She has light skin and loves colors and really experimenting. Can somebody recommend a program for me?
It really depends on what types and brands she has a preference for. There have been so many new subscription boxes since this thread was created. And the ones we're posting about don't even begin to cover all the ones that are out there.
I assume you're looking for beauty subscription boxes... but there are also ones for food, jewelry, clothes/shoes, etc.
Personally speaking, Glossybox is my favorite as for a brands, samples sizes and box value. I'd consider GB generally high-end beauty items. It's more expensive than most, $21 but you get atleast one full size item. But it seems that I've been averaging 2-3 full size items in my box. They did have shipping and billing issues starting out (May timeframe) but it seems they have recitified that. I believe they are currently offering a 3-month subscription with a free box right now. I believe you have to use code "COSMO" for that.
As far as other boxes, I also like Birchbox in terms or of their rewards system. You get "money" back for your reviews. In terms of content, they're hit or miss for me. But I haven't been disappointed enough to cancel (I've been with them for over a year.). I'd consider BB a mix of high-end, prestige and drugstore items. Other ladies have used MyGlam/Ipsy which I heard has improved greatly in the last few months. I've never tried them but it seems they have a mix of prestige and drugstore items.
