Since June of this year I had been sampling six different beauty subscriptions to see which I really liked. I initially thought I would just test them out for three months, but went over by a few months, hehe. Of the six, I decided to cancel @BeautyARMY and @BeautyBarDotCom (Sample Society). With Beauty Army, though they gave us the power to choose the samples we liked, there were hardly any of the ones I liked left when it came to my selection window (a date when it was your turn to choose). I ended up skipping a month, and when I was going to skip October I realized this just wasn’t for me. With Sample Society I was getting mostly tanning items (um, I’m dark enough thanks) and moisturizers/cleansers that I just didn’t like when I tried them out. The perfume samples were not so great either.. I think the only thing I really liked was getting nail polish and gloss.
For now I love love love @IpsyDotCom (MyGlam) and @GlossyBox_us. Their boxes always make me happy. I’m on the fence with @Birchbox, and I’m hanging onto @JulepMaven because it’s uniquely dedicated to nails and they have the option to skip months which I like.
Now that I have a few $$ to spend on other beauty buys, I’m really looking at the best deals I can get with drugstore makeup and their respective rewards cards. Wish me luck, or better yet share your tips with me! :)
