Hello there fellow Shopaholics, are you a fan of subscription boxes?
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.
THE “IT’S A SURPRISE” SUBSCRIPTION BOX
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

THE “BE MORE BEAUTIFUL” BOX
Another service I have used before is Rubybox, because I love beauty and skincare products
Ruby Box – which was a definite first of its kind in South Africa, delivers a selection of beauty product samples on a monthly basis. I noticed they have updated their order process, so it would be worthwhile to check out their website to see if the service is for you.
THE “HEALTHY FOODIE” BOX
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.
Do you use subscription services?? If you do, which one do you use and would you recommend the services??
