Beauty Subscriptions: Choosing The Right One For You
Most of these subscriptions can be cancelled at any time. You can try them out for a few months and then cancel the subscription if it's not for you. The top three beauty subscriptions I tried out were Birchbox, Play! by Sephora and Ipsy. I'll tell you my experience and decision, and then you can decide for yourself.

Play! by Sephora:
I had Play! by Sephora for about four months. Needless to say, I wasn't a fan. For starters, navigating between Sephora and Play! by Sephora websites is a tad tricky, I never knew which one I was on or how to get back to the other without completely closing out of both. The products that came were not very useful to me except for the Sephora makeup remover and hair oil they sent me.

Play! by Sephora comes with a bag like Ipsy but, it's not a makeup bag that you can use for throwing in your purse. It's a drawstring bag, a mini one. Also, most of the products are Sephora brand that I received and not much to my liking as I like the idea of trying out different brands so I think Sephora is a bit biased with the products they put in. I did like, however, the discount card you get for one time use for that month and since I am a VIB member, Sephora's rewards membership, for Sephora I got points but, you can only use it in store and not online which I thought was really annoying, especially since the kit comes through the mail. Basically, I cancelled my subscription.
I am thinking about trying FabFitFun, also, but right now I only subscribe to Ipsy and it is working for me.
