How to Pick the Perfect Subscription Box
If you’re like us, you’re probably ub-sessed with subscription boxes. And if you’re like us, you do deep research before you commit to a three-month, six-month, or whole-year box subscription. And what’s a girl to do when there are so many choices, and so little time (and money) to get every single one you want?
Good thing you’ve got us, because we’ve put together a checklist of all the things you should expect out of your subscription box. That’s right, everything you should absolutely get out of your swag bag.
1. It should be worth the value
This might be a no brainer, but it’s not always true for every box. If you’re paying anywhere from $10-$60 a month for a subscription, everything in it should be worth more than what you paid. And we’re not talking just $10 more, we’re talking two to three times what you’re forking over.
2. It should have full-sized products
Don’t you just hate it when you get a product you love and it runs out two days later? We’re not trying to feed anyone any haterade (sorry Birch and Ipsy), but you should absolutely get full-sized products. No one wants stuff they could get for free at a hotel stay. Or that they could pick up in the $1 section at Target.
3. It should have variety
Sure, you’ve got to nurture that nail polish fetish, but every girl needs a little variety here and there. The best way to get a good bang for your buck is if you get an assortment of items, like beauty, fitness, lifestyle, and fashion. The FFF VIP box, for example, always includes a huge range of products, from workout DVDs and nail polish, to facial cleansers and delish snacks.
4. It should be risky
You’re a fabulous woman so you shouldn’t be sent a snorefest of a box. A good subscription should not only send you products you love, but products you didn’t know you would love. To be a good box, you’ve got to think outside the box. Duh!
5. It should be ahead of the trend
Day-old bread doesn’t taste good and we’re pretty sure a behind-the-trend box won’t leave a good taste in your mouth either. Every subscription should bring you trend-setting products that will bring out the glamorous celebrity in you.
So, does your subscription box meet our checklist? Or are you still crying over that empty bottle of sample-size moisturizer? Ugly cry no more and sign up to be a FFF VIP now and save $5 off your first box.
