Today I wanted to talk about my decision to unsubscribe from "the boxes". By the boxes I mean Bellabox and LustHaveIt.
I have been subscribed to Bellabox since March and LustHaveIt since around June and was initially elated with the boxes. I've gotten some great stuff in each box, and really enjoyed many of the products. BUT, I have not tried one product that I wish to repurchase, and have more lotions and skin scrubs than I can poke a stick at. I'm not wanting to sound ungrateful as I really appreciate what each of these boxes are doing, but I have decided they are not for me. The novelty has worn off.
Cancelling both my memberships has left me with an extra $30 each month which I am now spending on a gym membership at the cost of $32 a month. My body will thank me for it!
From my experiences with Bellabox I have really enjoyed their boxes. They seem to be focused on more natural, skincare type products. Again, I have not wanted to purchase anything I have tried and I have received a hell of a lot of brown lipsticks from them. No so fussed on the brown. Another complaint I have with Bellabox is the shipping. Now I know they can only do so much and Australia Post does the rest, but for some reason I get to read all the blog posts on a Friday about what people have received, and I don't get my box until the following Monday. If only they would ship out all the boxes on a Monday, everyone would receive them in the same week.
LustHaveIt seems to be a bit more of a fun box. I've gotten more hair care and makeupy type items from LustHaveIt. Although lately the boxes seem to be lacking a little in terms of content. Possibly due to the takeover of Glossy Box and the new Eco-Boxes it may have all become a little too much for them to handle. In terms of shipping I seem to be one of the first to get the LustHaveIt box, but they do come later in the month. I don't really have complaints about the box coming later as it still comes in the month it is expected.
If I had to chose between the two I would chose Bellabox. They are more consistent and seem a little more stable, but if skincare is not for you then avoid this box!
Tell me, are you still subscribed to the boxes?
