Boxycharm sends full size products. This tends to make it a much better value. But it's only a better value if you like and use the products. Birchbox isn't much of a 'deal', it's designed to help you find products you love and want to buy.

Do subscription boxes make money?

Are subscription boxes dead?

Subscription box services are dead without a strong marketing strategy. And marketing strategies are dead without the right people to execute them. That means copywriters, art directors, social media planners—people who know how to sell.

Is Fab Fit Fun worth it?

Yes, the box is still worth $300 CAD per year! But only if you use the items in the box. If you're an international subscriber, I recommend signing up for the FabFitFun Select Membership so you can customize your box's contents.

How do I price my subscription boxes?

If your COGS is $20, your service needs to cost customers at least $20. That minimum would cover costs, but leave you no room for profit. If you want a gross profit margin to equal 50% of your retail, then your box should cost $40: $20 toward COGS and $20 of gross profit.

Is BoxyCharm legit?

BoxyCharm ($25/month) is one of the most popular beauty subscription boxes that we review, with lots of loyal customers. The products featured vary from month to month, and will include beauty tools as well as skincare and haircare items– but BoxyCharm definitely leans more makeup-heavy than other popular beauty boxes.
