    I just signed up for Ipsy and it's only $10/month. I looked at their previous boxes and the selection wasn't too bad. Anyway, I always figure the stuff I don't use can be given as a present.

    I get pretty well all of the boxes available to Canadians. Topbox, Luxe Box, Ipsy, Julep, SeasonsBox, Beauty Box 5, plus a bunch of food and lifestyle subscription boxes.

    Glymm and Glossybox Canada are both out of business now.

    If anyone is interested in them, check out my blog. It's all about Canadian subscription boxes. cdnboxaddict.blogspot.ca

    Glossy was one of the better boxes, sad to see them go
    Glymm on the other hand was no surprise, I got a couple boxes from them and was far from impressed with the product selection

    Finally am going to get my first Topbox this month, so hopefully it will be a good alternative to Glossybox

    Have anyone tried any non-cosmetics subscriptions boxes? I'd like to get a $12 box from FoodiePages but the wait is very long :-(

    Ipsy has a great bag coming out this month, Topbox this month was ok but nothing to get excited about. Season's boxes are usually really good. I'm going to check out Beauty Box 5 and Luxe Box as well. Does anyone have these 2 and if so, what are they like?

    I gave up on Ipsy. I think they are more for teens to early 20s. Too glittery for me.

    I liked everything in Ipsy this month except for the glitter eyeshadow... It's like they put glitter into Vaseline. Yuck. I recently subbed to Starlooks Starbox, so I'll see how that goes. I have one Luxebox left (terrible box, do not get) and I cancelled topbox.

    Somebody posted on FB that it's not eyeshadow in the Ipsy bag. It's body glitter!

    I get the Foodie Pages Tasting Box. It's a good one. It's very gourmet. There is also a Vancouver based one called SnackBox by Food.ee which is all healthy, gluten free, vegan snack. There are a couple Canadian tea subscription services - Amoda Tea and Tea Sparrow.

    I subscribe to both hand have lots of reviews on my site. I just did a full analysis of Beauty Box 5 the other day. It's a good starter box and is the cheapest on the market when you pay for a year sub ($100 so it's only $8.33/month), but there is lots of brand repetition and shipping to Canada takes nearly 3 weeks. I still recommend it though just on value alone.

    Luxe Box is quarterly, which I don't like. I hate waiting 3 months between boxes! The summer boxes are shipping out any time now so you may have missed the window for this quarter. They recently introduced limited edition boxes, which are sort of like the topbox prive boxes.

    OH and with regards to Seasons Box, they are no longer Canadian! The previous owner Agnes transfered the business to a woman named Nya in Atlanta, Georgia. They started shipping from the US in April. I have a 6 month subscription but I will not be renewing when it is up. Customer service has gone down, shipping takes forever, the products haven't been as good and they are changing the packaging and box design... I signed up because it was a Canadian company so I am not happy with these changes.

    really loved luxe box, but the last one was not good, the samples they had in there you could get for free at shoppers in the beauty department. i tried topbox, ipsy, glossy and glymm...i hated all.
