Every month since August 2016 I received a GoodieBox, which is a Danish beauty subscription box. Last year they launched GoodieBox Crush which is a quarterly subscription box with only makeup products, and I subscribed to that box as well. However, this month I decided to cancel both subscriptions.
I enjoyed receiving the boxes since it was something I looked forward to and I only had one problem of receiving a broken product, which I received a replacement for as well as an extra product not in the box. In general the boxes were good since they had a variety of beauty products from skin care, makeup, and beauty tools that far exceeded the value of what I paid. Most of the products I received I would use, and those that I would never use I gifted them to family and friends. There were some outstanding boxes like the June 2018 GoodieBox, the September 2018 GoodieBox Crush, and the February 2019 GoodieBox, but some duds as well as like the May 2017 GoodieBox, June 2018 GoodieBox Crush and the September 2018 GoodieBox. So if I liked the subscriptions why did I cancel them?
After receiving the GoodieBoxes for over 2 years, I have acquired a ton of skin care products that are just sitting in my closet. I have every intention of using those products, but it takes a while to go through a full-sized mask or cleanser. I also often received face oils and serums and now I have around 5 unused ones. I also have more than 10 body lotions and body butters that are not all from GoodieBox, but it still takes a while to finish a container of body butter. I have decided that it would be better to cancel my subscription and use the products I have before subscribing again. If I continued my subscription, I would only keep adding to my problem.
I decided to cancel the GoodieBox Crush subscription as well since I have the same problem with makeup. I recently went through the KonMarie Method where I tidied up my apartment and threw away old and poor quality makeup, but I still have a good sized makeup collection. I need to use the makeup I have instead of receiving new makeup products that I do not necessarily need every few months.
Now the only subscription I have is Netflix, which I am fine with since I watch Netflix almost every day and my mum uses my subscription as well. I have been thinking about signing up for a new subscription though, but I know it would not be beauty related. So I have question for you.
What subscriptions do you have?
