Have you heard about the new subscription box on the market, Aster Market? It is my first subscription box that I’ve signed up for. With so many out there on the market, I’d been trying to decide which one, if any, I’d like to try for quite some time. Then, a few months ago I learned that a former classmate of mine was launching her own subscription box service and my choice was simple! Of course, I wanted to support her in her endeavor, especially after learning more about Aster Market. For one, this subscription box features small-batch items such as bath products, home decor, accessories etc. This is much more in line with what I would like to receive as opposed to some of the beauty/bath boxes out there. Now don’t get me wrong, I love beauty and skincare items (have you read this blog?) but I really am not a huge fan of sample sized items. In fact, unless it’s something I really really want to try, I often opt out of the samples from Ulta and Sephora when I order online (this doesn’t include point perks – I’ll indulge in those) because I never use them and I end up just collecting a huge pile of samples. On top of that, Aster Market also donates 25% of the net proceeds to a charity of your choice! There are a number of charities that they are working with and you can choose one, such as UNICEF and the Global Fund for Women. So, to make a long story short, I knew I wanted to sign up for Aster Market.
The first boxes went out this month and here’s what I got!
