Hola my lovely readers,
As some of you know, I braced my subscription fears a few months back and was instantly addicted to receiving new and exciting products to try every month. I guess you can say I jumped in in a big way because I went from zero boxes to two in the matter of a month. I did a lot of research online before deciding what boxes I wanted to try out and although I was impressed with most and tempted by many, I landed on Birchbox and Glossybox as my two winners. I feel that now, after a few months of getting these two boxes (or bag one month for Birchbox, which has taken up residence in my purse) I can give a fair opinion of which I prefer so here we go! The gloves are on and the battle of the subscription boxes is on:
This month both boxes have done something a little special: Birchbox is celebrating their birthday (5 years) and Glossybox has done a style edit, so pretty fair playing ground if you ask me.
Here is what came in each box. Notice the sizing, brands, packaging…. The two boxes are very different but each has its merits. I love the presentation of Glossy box, it is so pretty and it feels like I’m unwrapping a gift every month. I like that Birchbox comes with a little pull-string bag because I can use those for loads of other things and the products are always good for travel.
Glossybox tends to have bigger products (which I LOVE) while Birchbox tends to have smaller samples of more well known brands, which I also love, what can I say, I’m a girl obsessed. They are the same price, so it is really up to you to decide which is more important to you.
All of the products in this months boxes, and every month for that matter, are products that I am genuinely excited to use, and a girl cant complain about having someone choose some new beauty items for you to try out. But, as with every competition there has to be a winner and although both are treats to find on my doorstep, I am going to have to choose between the two and at the end of the day Glossybox has my heart.
What is your favourite subscription box? Let me know if you see anything in either of these boxes you want me to review and I will make that happen 🙂 If you have tried both of these boxes, let me know if you agree with my winner or not.
Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend. Until next time loves,
