To keep things clean and not clutter up your emails/feeds, I decided to compile the July boxes I got BEFORE my vacation into one post 🙂 I have to clear out the picture folder waiting to be posted before I upload all the mail that was waiting for me when I got home!
Splendies is a monthly underwear subscription box. The first month is currently on sale for $8, and then it increases to $12/month for subsequent months. This was my first Splendies box. I was very pleased with the discreet packaging.
I was a bit disappointed that it was just 3 pairs of underpants wrapped in tissue paper–I saw on another blog review (to which they link on their website) that each panty arrived in its own drawstring cloth bag! Obviously known bloggers are treated better?
However, I loved the products!
Seriously, how fun are these panties?! I love the bright colors and just the right amount of quirk. The materials are super soft and the lace doesn’t feel like it will be itchy on my ladyparts.
One other thing to note, however, is that there is no ‘customer account’ system on their website. You can’t log in and check or change your size selection, subscription, or shipments. There is no referral link, either. I don’t think I will stick with it for those reasons…plus 3 pairs of panties a month will add up super fast!
#2: Julep Summer Mystery big box version
As you may know, I have Julep Maven subscription, and I couldn’t resist this big mystery box! I should have, but I didn’t. If you don’t have a Julep sub, you can sign up here. They had different versions of the boxes and about 25% of people who bought the big box got like 15 polishes and 3 beauty items–I got 5 polishes, a scrub sample packet, and a makeup brush 😦 Color me disappointed. I may be a whiner but I don’t understand how it is fair or LEGAL for me to pay the same amount as someone else and they get 3x as much product as I do. LAME.
I don’t think I will be buying a mystery box again. I will stick to known entities, like my monthly box and their sale bucket.
#3 July BirchBox
You can get your monthly subscription to Birchbox here.
Overall I was satisified. I haven’t tried everything yet, but the eye cream goes on smoothly and isnt too thick or fragrant. The bobby pins work well even on my heavy, thick hair, so thats a good sign as well.
#4 July Ipsy
Subscribe for your own Ipsy bag here. Then invite all your friends to join so you get extra goodies in your bag!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND that’s all folks. Actually it isnt, but I have a couple food boxes and I am going to do them all together.
Did you get any of these boxes? Did I inspire any of you to join any of these services? Tell me what you think!
