Subscription Box Finds – Is Joining a Subscription Box Right For You?

I love sampling new things. The thought of discovering my latest and greatest FabuFind is always with me. There are items I adore and will probably always repurchase, but trying new things gives me the chance to find things I love even more. My sample obsession started with purchasing packaged sets. These usually contain items I really want to try or items I’ve tried in the past and need more time with. Sometimes, you find sets that are great values, so it is actually cheaper to purchase them if you really want most or all the items in the set. Although I still purchase sample sets, there is something surprisingly welcome about not knowing what I will get. Subscription Boxes seemed like the logical step to try items I had not considered.

Birchbox Man Box Review February 2016

See all Birchbox Man articles.

Birchbox Man gives at least four grooming samples a month $20. The price is double the Woman’s box, because of the added lifestyle item, which usually retails for over $20 by itself. As long as the lifestyle item is something you’d want, you should always get your investment back. You will get an email reminding you to select your lifestyle item. Respond as soon as you can, because the more desirable lifestyle items can go out-of-stock. All grooming samples are chosen based on the answers to your online profile questions. For every review on an item received in your box, you get 10 points, which is equal to $1 in the shop. A five item box, like this one, gets my husband $5 back.

The Vaughn Shampoo was in a past box, so it did not allow him to submit another review for 10 points. I’ve received duplicate samples when I select a guest editor box that repeats something I’ve tried before, and I do not recall being restricted from earning an additional 10 points. He has never selected a guest editor box, so I am unsure how a sample even repeated other than his idea that the last time he sampled it was in foil form. Foils are extras, so he thinks it may not have officially counted toward his tally. That could be it or Birchbox Man does not have the same rules about no repeats, because there are far less samples to hand out all around. We’ll see.

Birchbox Man August 2015

See all Birchbox Man articles.

Ever since I fell in love with Birchbox, I’ve tried to talk my husband into subscribing. Men’s subscriptions are $20 a month and not the $10 a month women pay. This is due to the added lifestyle item, which is more often than not over $20 by itself. Having a subscription that is twice as expensive also makes it twice as hard to get the value back. Thus, it is more risky. In a month where the lifestyle item does not connect with him, he will not get the value back on the box. He is one of the few people I know who does not like to try samples he has not done a ton of research on, so he had me convinced he would not try most of the product samples either.

He even joked that subscription boxes are clever at getting one to pay for junk they do not really want or need. A few months ago, I completely gave up on the idea that he should subscribe. I did this despite the fact that he keeps buying full-sized items he’s researched and “knows” he will love them only to find he does not love them once he tries them. Like me, he never returns anything either. That means he uses all these products completely before trying another one he pays the full price for in the hopes of finding one that will stick.
