Birchbox vs. MyGlam: February

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.
