Favorite Beauty Subscriptions

I admit that I jumped on the beauty subscription trend pretty late, but I have a few and I love the ones I do have. But not all subscriptions are the same! There are some I like more than others, and I’ll tell you why! But one benefit is pretty universal, regardless of which one(or ones!) that you end up going with: you get to try out products that you may have never heard of, as well as get some popular ones that you already love!

Ipsy Glam Bag

This subscription was the first one I ever tried, and is probably my favorite. I started before they had all the additional options like Glam Bag Plus(5 full-size products for $25) and Glam Bag Ultimate(8 full-size products for $50), and just have the regular Glam Bag(5 travel-size products for $12). All categories have the awesome option of choosing 1 product that you want each month. You can cancel anytime with no penalty, which means you can try it out for a few months to see if you like it without worrying about paying any additional fees to cancel. Here are some additional tips to best utilize this subscription service:

  • Fill out the reviews and the personalization quiz! I didn’t do this the first few months, and I ended up getting stuff that I didn’t really like or use. Once I started reviewing them, and filling out my skin type, tone, and the kind of products I like, I started receiving more treatments that fit my tastes. Plus, you earn points for every review that you can redeem for even more goodies!
  • Check out the Ipsy Shopper category each day! They have amazing deals on so many brands and free shipping with every order! I regularly snag some $80 Viseart palettes from them for the low price of $30! How amazing is that?
  • Be sure to check out the Add-On category at the beginning of each month! They have additional sale items like my favorite brushes from the brand Luxie for as low as $3! But I’d jump on it quick...these tend to sell out FAST!
  • The Shop Brands option is also a great resource for when you’re buying new beauty products. As an Ipsy member, you get additional discounts as high as 50% off of brands like Youth To The People, Aveda, and First Aid Beauty!

This beauty box is perhaps one of the most famous ones, and with good reason! You can select from a few different plan lengths from a 3 month commitment, all the way to a whole year commitment. They also have some great deals when joining like grabbing two boxes for the price of one, as well as gifting boxes to your loved ones. Similar to Ipsy, they have value sets, sale items, gifts with purchase and limited edition boxes. With a variety of products you can receive each month, from hair care to clean beauty, this subscription also has a loyalty program as well as an affiliate program. Plus, they have an extensive brand list, making it easy to find the companies that you love to buy from! Some of my favorites that are available on Birchbox are NEST Fragrances, Milk Makeup, and Perricone MD...I’m sure you can find your favorites here too!

Not your typical beauty subscription, this one caters to those obsessed with fragrances! With a selection of over 500 fragrances to choose from, this subscription sends you a month worth of your favorite fragrance in a sleek and stylish atomizer. Plus, if you don’t end up using all of it, you can skip a month, making this program super flexible. In addition, you can also add on skincare, makeup, and wellness products to your monthly fragrance! With brands like Gucci, Tom Ford, and Cartier, it will be very hard to go back to buying full size fragrances that you just can’t seem to use up before they expire! Want to try it out and get your second month free? Use this code and we’ll both get a free month: https://www.scentbird.com/referral/d/scentbirduser10336409?utm_source=viral&utm_medium=v iral_direct
