Hi, my name is Christy and I’m a subscription box-aholic

Dare I list the subscription boxes I receive? I think I should because I’m not sure everyone knows about all the amazing subscription box offers out there. And it’s not just makeup my friends. There is a super geeky gamer crate you can get and the boys love it :)

bluum – This one I really enjoy, it comes filled with things for Amelia. I gave them her age and size and so last month we received bibs, a hat, a sand rattle toy which she loves, dehydrated peas and this really cool spoon (mOmma – Spoon) that won’t fall over when you place it on a table. Plus for me, the mama, there is a cream you put on which helps with age spots on your face StriVectin-EV Get Even Brightening Serum. I need to do a video of the products. I was very impressed with the March box.

8599624057_1d172452c7_clootcrate – This one is meant for the guys. My husband has a new Doctor Who t-shirt from last month’s box. This month the b0ys were very excited because it came with Star Wars items. There were two postcards and C-3PO bobblehead which were very cool. And it came with a Hexbug, my boys love those things. I mean this box pays for itself every time, immediately, and the surprise is always excited.

beauty army – This one allows you to pick what you want to receive out of about a dozens options each month. You can skip a month if your budget doesn’t allow for it at any given time, too. Admittedly this one is hit or miss, sometimes the samples I can choose from are so similar from the previous month that I skip it. But this is the cheapest one and so every now and then you get great samples. I like the shampoos and perfume you can get.

ipsy – This is my favorite beauty bag. Sometimes you get really big samples instead of the tiny ones. You also get a makeup bag every month and there is always a theme. So last month was nautical and it came with cleasning cloths, they work very well. I have gotten awesome brands in the bags, I did a video makeup tutorial with my February bag.

julepmavenjulep maven – I received a great hot pink color this month, but last month I received Rock Start hand cream which feels amazing and smells good, too.

birchbox – I did a video of the March 2013 box and you can see the actual sizes of the products and what I got. The Marcelle BB Cream Golden Flow is a favorite. It is very lightweight and blends well on my skin.

I just received an email from birchbox stating that for $20/month you can subscribe to get boxes. Empty boxes in all shapes and sizes… I won’t be subscribing to that one.
