Does anyone here subscribe to Sugarbash and if so, any opinions?  

I was browsing some blogs I'd bookmarked and found this review on the Always Abby blog for a recent (I think it was May) box.  It was *such* an amazing box and I wondered why no one has been talking about it.  I was confused by the wording for this one because it says this particular month was a specially curated by a celebrity.  I don't know if that means it was a limited edition box, or the monthly.  But the value of this is incredible if it's the regular $25/month box.  

I can't find much about this sub and only a few reviews for past boxes.  But everything I could find piqued my interest and I decided to subscribe for a few months and see what it was all about.  I think I'll be getting the July box, so it will be a while before I receive one.   They have a Facebook page and a website, but the box purchase goes through Cratejoy.

I wish you could pay with Paypal. I don't like having to email to have my subscription cancelled. It's a big ol' pain.

I totally hear you.  I've let some subs go on for way too long because I'd forget to call or send an email.  It's always nice when subs have a 'cancel' button on their website. 

I'll post when I get my first box. Hoping it's not 'too good to be true' because for the price point, that May box was better than some of the $100 Popsugar LE boxes!  of course, probably not every month will be that good.  FYI - I subbed using a link I found on the Always Abby blog, and it took my first month down to $20.

I haven't heard of that before, but looks like a real hodge podge of random items. But you do get a lot of stuff for $25.

This one looks interesting. I signed up for a 6 month subscription to try it out. I hope it stays as good as it has been.

Did it just start in April?  Google didn't bring up anything older than that for me.

I can't figure out when it started either.  Before I decided to subscribe, I tried to find everything I could about it .  There were some things from 2014, but it looks like maybe they were just getting started then and only fully rolled out a few months ago. 

I was billed for $20, but haven't heard anything yet about when the next box is shipping (I think the FAQs say it's the end of each month, and I'm guessing mine starts with July).   

I also haven't found anything online about the June box, so. . hmm!  I hope I didn't make a mistake by subbing, but will let you know when I hear something.

After I read this post I subscribed and was immediately billed. I never received anything and have now been billed again. I am kind of upset about it. I don't like being billed twice without having something in my hands first. I already asked them to cancel my subscription for a full refund.

If you search this forum there are posts about this sub dating back to 2012.  There were issues then.

I mean, I don't know. I dont wanna bash the company because I haven't gotten anything from them yet. I just do not like that I was charged for another box after not receiving one in the first place. At this point I have given them $50.00 and have not gotten so much as an email.

Also I dont like that you can't cancel the box under your account. Or check the status on anything. You have to use a support ticket -that didn't work, I typed out a very long email in it and it then deleted it and told me to email a different address. So I had to retype my email to send to a diff address. Which was def meaner than the first email lol

I always worry about new subs and have been burned before-

I did get a welcome email and and order receipt email- my account is accessible at https://sugarbash.cratejoy.com and there is an option to suspend or cancel- it appears they do answer and post often on their facebook page 

It looks to me like the stuff from 2012 is related to them trying to start up a social media type page but I'm definitely not sure. The website says founded in 2014.

Now, having said all that- I will monitor my credit card and pace the floor until I get my first box!! I would feel better if there was an MSA review to be honest.

Thank you! I was under my account in Cratejoy but not under it in the Sugarbash page which is why I wasn't able to see a cancellation option. I totally appreciate that!

My subscription says I'm starting with the "Life's a Beach" box, which appears to have shipped out already.  I sent it to my office and haven't been in since Thursday, so maybe it's there.  But I didn't get a shipping notice or anything.   I can't remember which credit card I used, so I'm not sure if I've been billed a second time or not.  

If I don't get anything this month and am billed again, I'll cancel and do a charge back on my credit card.  I agree with you that it's upsetting to be charged twice without receiving anything.   I'll let you know what I find out. . . I really hope this is a good sub and want to give it a chance. But subs should be fun and wondering if I'm going to get anything or when, well. . .it just feels kind of cruddy.

Hey ladies! I've been subscribed to SugarBash since their first box in April and personally I love it! I found out about them through the Steve Harvey show :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> As for the billing - I've had a few questions myself because I bought my mother-in-law a gift subscription for us to enjoy, but they've been great at getting back to me within 24 hours via email. The email I've had a lot of sucess with is info@sugarbash.com.

When it comes to the "randomness" I thought so too at first BUT then after I got my boxes, I realized they are really fun & themed so everyting in the box has to do with that month's theme. I'm super excited to get my July box "Life's a Beach" so I'm really excited to see what beach items I get :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> So far I've been able to use everything and have learned a thing or two about beauty (like a wet brush!) haha who would have thought?!

As for them dating back to 2012 - not sure about that but I know they're a female start-up company that was featured last year on the Steve Harvey show and I think he's affiliated with them too.

To the ladies concerned about the billing - I'd honestly wait to hear from them before canceling - they're really great and fixing any whoopsies

Oh and I guess really quick - you are billied up front and the boxes come at the end of the month - they give you tracking numbers and everything so you know when and where your boxes are.

All in all I"m a very happy customer from them and I personally love that it's not a big company so I feel like I've gotten super personal attention and I mean the products I get are full sized and amazing!

Def suggest this one!
