This company with their Babe Box is a complete SCAM. They are shady in their practices and false advertising.
I got the ad on Insta to try the box by paying the shipping only with the first box free. I went to the website where another pop-up displayed this FREE first box ad. No exclusions listed, no explanations, just pay for shipping and get your box free, cancel anytime. Well, that’s a LIE.
After I got my first box, I was underwhelmed. It came with three items of which I’d only use one of them. The packaging was destroyed, and the insert indicated it was missing items. Now if it’s just a first box trial, okay, that’s fine, but they claimed this was to be a full box. Still, for $5.99 shipping, I couldn’t be mad. WELL, THEY MADE ME MAD.
So I emailed asking to cancel as the first box didn’t wow me, and for the price, Ipsy does better. They then told me that I should wait to cancel after my second box because they were going to charge me for the first box anyway...
I said no. That is fraud and I do not authorize that. Then they tried to show me in check out where it says "what is this?" Next to the shipping charge is hyperlinked to a little text box that pops up saying "you may get charged full price if you cancel."
IN A WHAT IS THIS LINK. How incredibly shady! It was not plain for everyone to see. It was not asterisked next to the word FREE, it was incredibly hard to find because if you go to "what if I want to cancel." they just say cancel anytime! Just email us.
This is a garbage company. They are not honest to their customers and they’re out to steal your money. DON'T BUY FROM THEM. In every subscription box group I’m in, I will constantly advocate AGAINST this subscription box.
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
