I started my monthly Birchbox subscription back in December. I really enjoy receiving the little brown boxes and playing with all of the goodies inside. I also enjoy reading all of your blogs and seeing the different thing you guys end up with. Recently, Elle over at ElleSees told me that there was a competing company called MyGlam which had some really cool monthly packages too. Of course, I had to check it out (for the sake of blog research).
My experience signing up for each of these monthly subscriptions was a bit different. Both companies have you fill out a survey to determine what kind of products they will send you. Also, they each cost $10 a month. Birchbox let me order a box right away (in the next month that they shipped). MyGlam made me wait a while. I had to go on a waiting list. Of course, this made me want to bag even more. I don't know if it is like that every month, or if once you are a member of MyGlam, you are a member. Does anyone know?
So what did I get this month?
Inside the Birchbox:
Dermalogica: Microfoliant OK, to be honest, I have used this product for years, and I swear by it as a gentle daily exfoliant.
Eye Rock: Designer Liner
Jouer: Luminizing Moisture Tint
Juice Beauty: Blemish Clearing Serum
Heart Shaped Nail File
Six free downloads from Green River Ordinance
Inside the MyGlam Bag:
Cute pink and black heart design bag
X Out: Shine Control
NYX: Roll On Shimmer
Premier: Dead Sea Cinderella Mask
NuMe: Professional Styling Tools & Hair Extensions $100 gift card (if anyone wants this, let me know, and I will send you the code.).
Freeman: Facial Mask Sachet in Goji Berry
Which do I like better? Well neither package blew me away. However, I am looking forward to seeing what will arrive in March. I don't know how long I will keep both of these subscriptions up. Hopefully, one of them will be a clear winner soon.
Do you subscribe to either of these companies? Do you like one better than the other? Are there more subscription services out there that I am not aware of? I know about JulepMaven and the Umba Box. Both services look like a lot of fun, and are on the list of things I might try one day (again, for the sake of blog research). I look forward to reading your comments about these services.
