Have you heard of beauty boxes?
I hadn’t. At least, not until very recently.
My friend Kristen (Lainey’s mom) introducing me to the concept of these are monthly subscription services where you get a bunch of beauty samples in the mail. She subscribes to Birchbox and said I would love it.
I did a little research and found out about Ipsy, a service very similar to Birchbox.The reviews of both services were good and I was torn over which one to subscribe to. Many of you even were divided on Facebook about which service you like better.
Both are $9.99 a month, so I decided to try both for a few months and see which I liked better. This was the first month I received both kits, which I was so excited about. I’m not really a beauty person – I tend to just stick the basics found at Target or Walgreens, so I love the opportunity to try some fun products that I would probably never buy – or even be exposed to. I don’t think I know a woman who wouldn’t LOVE these services.
I filmed a video right after opening my April Birchbox and Ipsy glam bag. You’ll literally see my reactions to the products, a bit of my chaotic family life and my vote for which box was better this month.
Boxes are typically not filled with the same things across the board, so I always enjoy seeing what others get in their boxes. (Here’s my friend Vera’s Birchbox this month). To watch more videos, just YouTube Ipsy or Birchbox plus the month for other videos.)
Do you subscribe to either of these services or have you in the past? If you have subscribed to both, which do you like better?
