As you may know, i've not been happy with Glossybox lately.. in fact i've considered cancelling my subscription as i feel as though they don't really pay attention to their subscribers nor do they with the customer service. Even though i am still with them for now, i've been looking into other beauty boxes and i ended up signing up to Birchbox last month.. (this is Octobers Box - i have just received my Novembers box, post to come shortly)
Like Glossybox, they are a monthly subscription.. priced the same at £12.95 and they come with a box of 4-5 samples or 1 or 2 full size products.
For my first Birchbox i've been extremely happy with all the contents, each of which i have already used and loved them all.
Instead of a pink Glossybox, Birchbox comes in a brown box and has cute chevron print inside. It also comes with a bag, instead of black shredded paper - which may i add, i absolutely hate! It makes the products all dusty.
Inside the bag it contained 6 sample sized products and a full size being the eyelash curlers.. I was really happy to see products in there i actually wanted to try and would actually use.
I think it justifies the price really well, seeing as though Glossybox only really had 4 sample size products and 1 full size.
I can actually see myself sticking to this subscription, as long as Birchbox don't change i'd happy pay for it month after month.
Inside the box:
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer - sample
Akane Mask Cocoon Nocturne - sample
KMS California Hair Play Make Over Spray - sample
theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac - sample
Dr. Lipp Nippe Balm for Lips - sample
Egyptian Magic - samples
Birchbox Eyelash Curlers
