I haven’t reviewed my two beauty subscription boxes in a while so here is my breakdown of April.
Birchbox – $10 a month plus tax ($10.86 for me)
The box this month was really pretty and here’s what I got:
Acure – organics lip lush lip gloss
Juliette has a gun – perfume in Anyway
Vasanti – Brighten Up! Face scrub
Supergoop – Daily correct CC cream
Davines – OI all in one milk
Davines – OI shampoo and conditioner
This box was actually very good for me. I ended up really liking the Davines shampoo, and the Anyway perfume by Juliette has a gun is my new favorite and I plan to order the full size. The face scrub was also really nice and made my skin very soft. The supergoop CC cream was a little oily for me and I just purchased a different one from MD Solar sciences that I like better but was happy I got to try it. Overall a really great box and several products I’ll end up buying full sizes of.
IPSY Glam Bag – $10 a month no tax
This month’s bag isn’t quite as cute as some of the others (they’ve had some really adorable bags.) Here’s what I got:
Jor’el Parker – Fango Mud Therapy
Tarte lipsurgence – in wonder
Briogeo – Don’t Despair repair hair therapy
Ofra – eyeshadow
The mud therapy was nice and a good replacement for my Glam Glow mud that has dried up recently. It smells nice and seems to do just as good of a job. The shade of the tarte lipstick was a bit too bright for me. The hair therapy involved applying it overnight and putting something over your pillowcase to protect it which sounded too messy and too much hassle for me so I skipped that. I didn’t try the eyeshadow because I don’t wear that.
Overall, I really have been liking Birchbox and might cancel the Ipsy Glam bag soon. I’ll miss the adorable bags, but the products are from brands I haven’t really heard from usually (aside from Tarte) and I haven’t really discovered anything I’d like to purchase.
