Well folks, you have spoken.
Not everyone gets a trophy at this awards show!
Not everyone will be honored to be nominated but……..
thems the breaks……….
nobody said that subscription boxing was easy….
Todays Host is none other than….
These awards are a tally of all submissions. Some answers were so good that they had to be repeated word for word:
Best New Subscription in 2015
Favorite Ipsy bag from 2015:
June’s neoprene-ish swimsuit bag
September Sparkly bag
Favorite Beauty Product Discovery from a Subscription box:
IPKN twinkle lips
One Love Organics
Define Me Perfume Oil
Sage and Row Shave Cream
Klorane Eye patches
One Love Organics Wonder balm
Biggest personal box disappointment:
Little Lace Box
Five Four Club
An unpopular choice I am sure but the Rachel Zoe and Mizzfit boxes have been a disappointment to me. The Rachel Zoe box because the hero items are often sized without that being taken into consideration (although I love that the hero item is revealed early so you can decide if the box is worth it or not). The Mizzfit box disappointed me because it started so strong and this last box (with the exception of the blender) was full of trial sizes and fillers (the waist trainer pushed me over the edge).
Little Lace box received the most votes in this category. Sorry LLB!

5. Most popular subscription box item in 2015
Red Lip color!
All of these submissions had multiple votes! The ants in my bathroom have loved the sugar scrub trend!
6. Best Personal Subscription Box Value
Popsugar with a code
Hands down this went to PSMH!
7. Item you really hoped would be in a subscription box in 2015 but was not:
A Million Dollars
An All Expense paid trip to Hawaii
A Throw blanket
A pair of shorts that made my thighs look slim
8. Box you really wanted but couldn’t afford
Some said none (no impulse control!)
LE Luxor Box
QVC Popsugar Box
Neiman Marcus PSMH
Ah the life of a junkie……….
9. Favorite non-beauty item from a subscription box:
Friends Ear BudsCandles,
Sea Horse Pet Pillow,
Blender from Mizz Fit,
bento lunchbox from PSMH,
tray and geode clock from NM PSMH,
all the doggie happiness in Bark Box,
Any and All Sunglasses!!
10. Item you hope to never see in a subscription box again
Discount cards for things that weren’t even sampled in the box! I feel like Quarterly has done that on more than one occasion. It’s like they’re saying, “here’s something the curator wanted to put in the box but we thought it made the cost of the box too expensive.”
It does not surprise anyone including Billy that Harvey Prince is the #1 thing that most people do not want to ever, I repeat, ever want to see in their box again!
Now onto some blog awards:
