For a long time the only monthly subscription box I did was birchbox, and then it was like all they gave me was facewash . . . so I decided to just do stitchfix . . . but then I felt like none of my feedback was listened to and the items were expensive . . . so I decided to give rocks box a try. I got a free month from a referral link from a friend. Here’s my results ::
My stylist said the entire collection was around this necklace because I had like it in my profile. I do love this necklace and have the earrings to match so I really feel like she got my style. I didn’t keep this necklace because I’m not a big dainty necklace wearer. I also don’t like to be matchy matchy and the only thing I can see myself wearing it with is the earrings I already have.
these earrings were chosen to match my necklace. maybe it’s because I don’t like dainty necklaces, but would earrings this big really go with that necklace? I also have about 4 pairs of cobalt blue earrings 3 of which I don’t wear a lot anyway, and at $54 these went back.
finally I was given this ring . . . I do like it, but I went no further because it’s $94. nope.
Sooooo end result I liked the pieces, I felt like my stylist got me just off my profile, but it was much too expensive. I also didn’t like how I can’t tell her why I didn’t like it. It’s either like, didn’t like, or buy . . . I wish I could have told her why I didn’t buy it so maybe my next box would go better.
but alas my next box will most likely be my last. every member gets a credit in October as a thank you from rocks box and I’m not one to pass up free credit. I’m also giving them one more chance to knock down these prices, but from what I’ve seen on other blogs that’s not likely to happen. So I updated my birchbox profile so I hopefully won’t receive anymore face wash and can still enjoy getting a fun beauty subscription every month 🙂
what’s your favorite subscription box? anybody think rocksbox prices are reasonable?

There is a section in the Rocksbox profile where you can leave comments about each piece. 🙂
I’m on my third set and I’ve been loving it so far. I don’t usually even think about buying the pieces though, since they are designer and pretty pricey–I just like having my jewelry collection refreshed and having the chance to wear the pieces and then send them back. 🙂
I also haven’t worn a ton of the pieces in my sets together–mostly because I don’t usually wear a ton of jewelry at one time.October 8, 2014 at 10:06 am
I figured there would be! I must have just missed it. It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that I can wear the items and then send them back, haha! I need to remember that when I got my next box.October 8, 2014 at 3:40 pm
I just got an invite to a free month of this and I’m considering trying it! I use Le Tote so I’m familiar with the concept of renting clothing/accessories. It sounds like the pieces are pricey but if you’re just renting them it’s kind of nice to have some fancy jewelry to wear 🙂October 8, 2014 at 2:26 pm
I’m so glad I found your post. This is the first review I’ve seen of this box. I will be interested to wee what your next box looks like. I had the same experience with Birchbox and cancelled. I am a little happier with my Ipsy bag.October 8, 2014 at 8:45 pm
