3 of SA's Great Subscription Box Services

Hello there fellow Shopaholics, are you a fan of subscription boxes?

Subscription Boxes Available in South Africa

Anyone who knows me well knows I like shopping, but they also know I am a lazy shopper. I have a list of tried and trusted websites that I love and follow who have items that I love and I go back to them again and again.

I am not one for going into actual shops and interacting with real people, and bargaining, I hate barganing.

Therefore, I do plenty of online shopping, just recently I did a list of where I go my back to school goodies, and most of these shops were online stores or had a pretty good online presence which meant I could shop to my hearts content, on my phone.

One of the services I really like for trying out new products is subscription boxes. There has been a few of these services in South African and I hope even more will be coming as they are a great way of trying a selection of products in the comfort of your home.

Recently I had the pleasure of trying out Into the Box – the company based in Cape Town delivers a selection of locally sourced goodies to you for the month.  This is what was in the January box, I must say I like

Another service I have used before is Rubybox, because I love beauty and skincare products

In my house, we try as hard as possible to have fruit and healthy snacks, for consumption by everyone in the house.  One of the things I am still waiting to find, is a fruit and vegetable subscription services in my area, which will be a definite win.

In the meantime, I have just discovered GoodSnacks through a post on the TechGirl blog.  They promise a selection of healthy snack based on a questionnaire that I completed when I signed up.  I can’t wait to receive my first box and try them out.  I will be posting a review of the box on the blog.

    I have not tried subscription boxes before… sounds fantastic though! However, when I go to shops, I always go for bargains so I think this is not for me. But I like how it’s so convenient though. Lovely post! #KCACOLS

    I do not use a subscription service for shopping. I was doing a fruit and vegetable one for a few months, but turns out I just prefer to be able to choose my own produce, so I cancelled it.

    These are some pretty cool subscription boxes! I especially love the health food box! I like that there is a quiz to take to see what products they will send you. Thank you for sharing!

    I love subscription boxes. They are great and I love the surprise factor. I have at the moment one subscription with Glossybox which is a beauty one. I was before with a craft subscription to do with my daughters. I have stopped that one at the moment but I might come back again as they are great. I saw one about just stationary which I would love to try. Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS, 🙂 x

    I used to have a subscription with Glossybox – beauty – but after a while the products started to lose their uniqueness. There’s a real joy in the surprise factor though and you’ve reminded me how much I like receiving a little parcel of goodies each month! Thanks for linking up at #sharethejoy
