I have a confession to make. This year I turned thirty and I managed to reach this grand old age having not tried out a subscription box. Once a novelty, the humble subscription box has come far in the past decade or so and now there are so many to choose from, it can become a little overwhelming deciding which one to go for. Love Sub recently contacted me offering to send across a subscription box from the impressive range available on their site and I was more than happy to oblige.
Love Sub take the hassle out of choosing the right subscription box for you. Their easy to navigate website allows you to easily break down the options, based on whether you are looking for food, beauty, books or lifestyle, and then allows you to quickly and easily order direct from that brand’s own website with minimum hassle.
Whether you are looking for a treat for yourself, or a gift for a loved one, Love Sub are guaranteed to have something to suit every taste. Browsing the website, I wasn’t sure whether to go for something a little bit different (you can get a box which delivers chocolate and a book to your door, perfect for the autumn nights we have coming up), or one from the most popular section, which had names I had heard of before in the beauty blogging world.
In the end, I opted for Glossybox, largely because it’s reputation precedes them. I have heard so many good things about this beauty box, that I simply had to try it out for myself.
Glossybox is available from just £10, and includes several products each month from the beauty industry’s most trusted and loved brands. I appreciated being able to see in-depth information about Glossybox’s subscription box on the Love Sub site before I clicked through. It covers the typical contents of the box, the target audience of the box and details about delivery and cancellation, as well as similar boxes if it isn’t quite right for you or you are already subscribed and would like something along the same lines.
The Love Sub site provides discount codes for some of the subscription boxes featured, meaning that not only are you assisted in deciding which box is right for you, you are also getting a great price. Love Sub are currently offering 20% off of your first Glossybox, which means you can subscribe and receive your first box for just £8, or choose to pay upfront for a minimum of 3 boxes at a discounted rate of £36.25.
I was so excited to receive my Glossybox through the post. I must admit, the feminine packaging was appealing to me, as I am very into pinks and pretty things and I was not disappointed.
It almost looked too good to open up, but the contents inside were worth it. The products themselves would have retailed to a lot more than the price of the box, which makes subscription boxes worth the money.
Receiving a monthly treat, delivered to your door, whatever that treat looks like for you, is the kind of indulgence I can get on board with, especially when the prices are affordable thanks to Love Sub.
I was provided with a one-off subscription box from Glossybox, thanks to Love Sub, however all words and images are my own.
