Questionnare quality and Shipping of product:
Fab Bag: If has a vague questionnaire and products actually are random.
Products vary for people depending upon the answers in the questionnaire. During the middle of the month, you may get a mail asking you to select the shade of a product, depending on that each one may get a different product.
Glamego: Everyone receives almost the same product, as their description says “Pre-selected products)
Referral or Loyalty Points:
Fab Bag used to give a new bag for anyone who refers a friend. Now they have taken that one out. You have points for every Rs.10/- spent. If you spend Rs.100/- you will have 10 points( which is worth Rs.10) and you can redeem them.
Glamego I have not come across any thing like that. Though they give a 40% or 50 % voucher on every box.

Usually, there will be a skin product, makeup product, bath product and wellness product. Based on your answers in the quiz this will change.
What you should keep in mind while buying subscription boxes ?
- You will recieve products based on your answers in questionnare, so be careful while answering so that your concerns are heard.
- At some point in a month, you will recieve a mail asking for preference of product, don’t delay it as it might delay your shipping or you might recieve a default product which you may not like.
- Not all will receive the same products.
Personally I have a regular subscriber of Fab Bag since 2014 and Glamego since few months. I have not always felt good about the service Fab Bag gives.
Nearly 80% of time I received the products towards the end of the month. Right now I have stopped the subscription since I am getting most of the products I want in Glamego at much cheaper price.
