Subscribing to Cravebox and going through some of the products that I received last year from my subscription to Beauty Fix set a little fire under me. While I’ll be showing you exactly how great the shoes from Shoe Dazzle are in January (my first pair haven’t arrived yet), I figured that I’d do a little research and what is out there that will have your mailbox brimming with full-size products that you can get at a DEEP discount.
While I knew there were quite a few, I wasn’t ready for what I found. Since I haven’t subscribed to all of them, I can’t give you the inside information on those that I’ve never tried, but if YOU are getting any of these, I’d love to know what you think. The good thing is that they are all cancellable, so if your first package doesn’t live up to your expectations, simply stop your subscription.
I’ll list them according to what each of the subscriptions offer, by price (low to high).
