A Year in Review: My Many Beauty Subscription Boxes

A Year in Review: My Many Beauty Subscription Boxes

I can’t believe it’s already been an entire YEAR since I became a Birchbox subscriber. Today I received a pretty pink leather key chain in the mail from Birchbox as a ‘thank you’ for my membership, along with a 25% off discount code (bblove25). Birchbox was gateway drug into the world of beauty subscriptions. Some good, some bad, some really abhorrent. Read below for my thoughts on each beauty box that I have subscribed to over the past year.

GoGoGirlfriend: Subscriber Beware

GoGoGirlfriend: Subscriber Beware

This kinda makes me sad. I’ve never dedicated an entire post to complain about a company before. Unfortunately, GoGoGirlfriend is going to be the first.

I originally signed up on September 14th, 2011. My first box was shipped promptly and I was pretty pleased with the items overall. Things fell apart shortly after that. GGG was delaying box shipments by over a month and blaming it on the holidays. Then when the holidays passed, they blamed it on vendors.  Several people were complaining on their Facebook  wall about being charged and not receiving anything. GGG promptly disabled  posts to their Facebook and blocked members who were complaining.

GogoGirlfriend! December 2011

UPDATE (2/9/12): I cancelled my GoGoGirlfriend subscription on 1/31/12. I can no longer recommend subscribing to this company. I will leave my GGG posts up as a reference, but sign up at your own risk. See my GoGoGirlfriend post for more details.

Okay, so I don’t really know if I should call this my November or December GogoGirlfriend box because this thing was seriously delayed. I will list the products I received and post my box photos, then I’ll go into the explanation of my disappointment this month.

GoGoGirlfriend Box! November 2011

UPDATE (2/9/12): I cancelled my GoGoGirlfriend subscription on 1/31/12. I can no longer recommend subscribing to this company. I will leave my GGG posts up as a reference, but sign up at your own risk. See my GoGoGirlfriend post for more details.

I received my second sampler box from GoGoGirlfriend last week. This service is still pretty new for me, but I must admit, my first box was a lot better than my second. I’m still satisfied with the items I received, I got a LOT more stuff in last month’s box. GoGoGirlfriend is still a relatively new subscribtion service, so I want to get a few shipments before I decide if it’s worth my $12.99 per month or not. So far, I’d say it is.

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

UPDATE (2/9/12): I cancelled my GoGoGirlfriend subscription on 1/31/12. I can no longer recommend subscribing to this company. I will leave my GGG posts up as a reference, but sign up at your own risk. See my GoGoGirlfriend post for more details.

Admittedly, I’m pretty obsessed with these monthly sample subscription services. GoGoGirlfriend is the newest service that I joined (thanks to K, one of my awesome commenters for the recommendation!) and so far I am definitely impressed. My last 2 Birchbox shipments have been a little underwhelming, so GoGoGirlfriend has been a refreshing element thrown into my mix of monthlys! The three I subscribe to are: the Beauty Test Tube, Birchbox and GoGoGirlfriend.
