A couple of weeks ago I was unexpectedly contacted by one of the staff at Wantable asking if I would like to try out their subscription service by receiving a complimentary box. I instantly leapt at this wonderful opportunity as I was already contemplating on subscribing so seeing how their service functioned is a massive bonus.
If you guys don’t know what Wantable is, it is essentially another subscription box where you receive a majority of full-prized products (yay!). Wantable not only make-up related boxes; you can also opt for Accessories box (3 to 4 boutique jewelry pieces) or an Intimates box (4 to 5 premium staples). As with most other subscription companies, Wantable has given their customers the choice between subscribing monthly for $36 each month and buying a one-off box for $40. With the subscription service you are also allowed to skip or cancel your service at any stage of your subscription.
The one thing that makes Wantable stand out of the crowd of other subscription services is their in-depth personalisation of boxes. Although other companies claim to personalise your box each month a majority of people end up receiving duplicates where they love some products and hate the others. Wantable on the other hand makes every new customer grade their likes and dislikes on particular items and while it may seem like a tedious chore at the start of the process, but in the end it will benefit you as you actually receive products you want to try out.
I can truly say that I am very pleased with all the items I received. Not only did I receive products I like to use but they are in the correct shade range I like as well. Which is a very good indication that Wantable actually listens to its customers. I also haven't tested out any of these brands before, but I have heard some interesting reviews about some of the brands. Words cannot explain how excited I am about these products!
You also receive an A4 sheet of paper giving you details of what you’ve received in the box plus their purpose and use as well as a description of what the box features. Another reason I’m a big fan of Wantable is that they give you the actual retail price of the full price products you’ve been given. I also forgot to mention that each box is valued $80 and over, so I’m glad to see that sample products aren’t included in that worth.
The one ‘downside’ I do have with this box is that it doesn’t come in a ‘fancy’ box as other subscription boxes do. I put downside in quotation marks, as I don’t actually see it as a disadvantage. I’d honestly much rather a company that delivers great products than a company that spends way too much on the box than caring about what products they are providing to their customers. The one thing that I am truly disappointed about is that I am missing a product by the looks of my product list – LAQA & Co. Nail Polish. I’m so bummed as I’m a
lot obsessed with nail polish, but hey you win some you lose some.
So the products I have received this month are:
- Lisa Watier Solor Eyeshadow Powder in Beige Scintillant $18
- Jordan Liberty FAKE IT Valley Girl Lashes - $8
- Be A Bombshell Blush in Blind Date $16
- FACE Stockholm Cake Eyeliner in Navy $18
- Michael Marcus Lipstick in Rapture $24
- Echo Vie Organic Body Oil (sample)
- Missing - LAQA & Co. Nail Polish in Fancypants $11
Total value of box (excluding the missing item) = $84
Very, very impressive indeed.
Whether you want to start subscribing to subscription boxes or just want a change of your current one, I definitely think Wantable is a good option. And before I finish off this post, I just wanted to state that although Wantable did send me this complimentary box, my opinions on their service have not been altered. I am truly, one hundred percent honest when I say that I commend Wantable on their strong persistence of giving their customers exactly what they want.
I think I've been pushed over the line on the question of whether to subscribe or not, but I will have to wait until I come back from my holidays. I am foreseeing that I will come back very, very poor and do not want to be over withdrawn from my bank account, ha.
