5 Subscription Services You CAN'T Live Without!

5 Subscription Services You Can't Live Without

1. Fabletics

Price: $50 a month, but that can also vary on what outfits you choose. 

Box Type: Athletic/Swimwear

How It Works:
You take a pop quiz so they can get an idea of your sense of style. You shop your cart & you checkout!

How Flexible VIP works:
When you become apart of the VIP program you will save up to 50% off regular pricing and earn points. You can skip a month if you choose if you don't see anything you like in particular that month. You can also cancel at anytime if you don't like the VIP part of the subscription. 

What's great about Fabletics is you can choose some really great athletic wear, but a lot of the clothing is so comfy you won't want to take them off. You can just lounge around as well without feeling like you're suffocating like other athletic wear. They also offer a good variety of swimwear and accessories as well. 

Right now they're doing a deal where you can get 2 pairs of leggings for $24 when you become a VIP. I mean can you imagine finding this great of quality at this price that's comfortable, breathable, and cute? 

Some of my favorites are: 
Kenzie Sports Bra

Petal Capri

"It's casual, chic, and affordable and there's something for every body type." -Kate Hudson

I really love Fabletics. I'm not one to vigorously workout because I have cancer and that does slow me down a bit, but I do love to walk and hike often. Other workout gear I've bought from high-end to even lower end companies have never compared to Fabletics. The clothes are comfortable and I don't feel as though I'm suffocating as I've felt in the past trying other work-out gear. I've had some of my Fabletics outfits for a long time with minimal wear. It's great to receive my clothes monthly due to the fact that it also gives me the motivation to work out because I want to actually wear the clothes out. I also love the cute outfit designs and fabrics. There shipping has always been great and the only one time I had an issue - Customer service was also just as fantastic and super sweet to me.

Check Out Fabletics!

2. Scentbird

Price: $14.95 a month

Box Type: Perfume Subscription

Scentbird is a monthly fragrance subscription service. Each month you will receive an 8 ml purse spray of any fragrance of your choice (enough perfume to apply daily for a whole month) along with a custom perfume atomizer which arrives in your first box to protect your perfume. Scentbird has over 300 fragrances to choose from and if you opt not make a selection they will send you their monthly featured scent.

Scentbird ships on the 15th of the month.  If you subscribe before the 5th of the month your package will ship on the 15th of that month. If you subscribe after the 5th your package will ship the following month. The price is only $14.95 a month.

You take a survey which looks like this below that will determine a match of fragrances you can choose from although I believe you can choose fragrance you would like for that month.

Here is what the perfume looks like open. It’s really easy to swap out your vials too.  You just twist the atomizer and pull the vial out from the top.  When you aren’t using it, you twist the vial the other way and you can throw it in your purse and not have to worry about it spraying or emptying in your bag like traditional perfumes.

What I love about Scentbird:

  • The twist atomizer is easy to use and functions well. Not messy like when you put a regular perfume in your purse. I've had my perfumes leak many times while just throwing it in my purse.
  • I love that I can get the same use out of it that I would a roller ball.
  • It lasts a long time and I can choose which scent I want each month so that I don't get bored with one fragrance. 
  • You have the option to sign up month by month or you can do the multiple month subscription options. They offer 3-months, 6-month and 12- month subscriptions along with a gift option as well.
  • The price is only $14.95 a month which is a great price for the amount you receive. 
I received the scent "Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture" and I absolutely loved it! I've tried a lot of the perfumes by Juicy Couture and I've loved pretty much every one of them. You can choose from id say hundreds of fragrances so chances are you'll find your scent!

3. Ipsy 


Price: $10 a month. 

Box Type: Makeup Subscription

How It Works!

Upon signing up, you fill out a brief beauty quiz about what types of makeup you love and would like to receive, your features (eye color, skin type, etc.) and what brands you’d like to try out. Many brands they list are common, but there are some I’ve never heard of.

You get billed the first of each month and your glam bag is sent in the middle of the month. Unlike Stitch Fix, where it allows you the option to schedule boxes at will, Ipsy automatically schedules one every month and you must cancel on your own when you want to stop receiving bags. You get to keep everything that comes in the bag.

Each month’s bag features different products and a different theme, but subscribers mostly receive the same or similar products each month. For example, my bag might be the same as someone else, or it might have a few of the same and a few different items inside.

I really prefer Ipsy over other leading beauty boxes due to the fact I get to try out name brands as well as indie brands. I've been subscribed for years and yes the box I've felt had months I've thought "Meh", but that's very few months I've felt that way out of the 3 years I've been subscribed. 

What types of items do you get from Ipsy?


4. Love With Food

Price: Starts at $7.99 a month.

Box Type: Food Subscription

What's in a In Love With Food box?

Here is a sample of what I got:

  I love the 'Love With Food' box and I was really impressed with what I got for $7.99 a month. A lot of the products I had never heard of. I shared the box with my husband and he and I both love it. It's very heartfelt that they donate a meal to a hungry child as well as some of the products the companies also donate as well for different charities and that to me is very important. Also, the fact that the food was really good and foods that I maybe wouldn't have tried is a plus as well. I like trying different foods and different things and if you are up for trying something new try 'Love With Food'. 


Price: Varies from $34.57 to $293.02

Box Type: Survival

The Battlbox comes with a ton of must-have items! A lot of the items are great to take on a hike with you, an outdoors trip, or to just have in the home as a just in case thing. I've already used a ton of the items from the kit. We've used the Pine Pitch Fire Starters to light fires for our bon-fire.  Having those "Just In Case" items around the home are great to have in case of emergencies. You just never know with this day and age. My husband works as a mechanic and in a auto-parts junk yard so he is always around a ton of snakes so having a snake bite kit I received is great. I feel safer knowing it's around although if you do get bit by a snake it's better to go to a hospital if poisonous that's obvious, but having the kit none the less makes me feel a lot better.

Which box can you get?

BattlBox BASIC
You have chosen Battlbox Basic. At this level, you will receive 2-4 hand selected items each month, ranging from survival tools and manuals, to emergency supplies and edc gear. Part of the surprise is you never know what you will get! It’s like Christmas once a month, so be on the lookout for your Battlbox in the mail.
