As you may recall, I subscribed to Ipsy for over two years. (How could you not recall since I wrote about my glam bags every month 😉) I really looked forward to trying out the samples and loved getting my pink shiny envelope in the mail each month.
After a lot of going back and forth, I decided that I wanted to move on to something different. While I have really enjoyed so many of the samples that I received over the last few years, I felt as if I was getting bored with them, while also feeling overwhelmed with too many small sample products to try. I am ready for change!
I went back and forth between getting a subscription for Boxy Charm or Glossy Box. Both boxes are $21 per month. Both boxes seem to have deluxe and full-size samples.
From the research I did, Glossy Boxes has more skin care and deluxe samples, whereas Boxy Charm seems to have more makeup related items and full-size product.
I definitely prefer makeup and full-size products, but on the other hand, it is nice to be able to try out new skincare products that I might not ever try otherwise. It was a tough decision.
Boxycharm seemed to be the way to go. According to the website, Boxy Charm always has 4-5 full sized items and claims that each box has a value of $100 or more.
So while this is my last month getting ipsy, I have finally I signed up for a subscription to Boxy Charm. For now, I am only planning on getting Boxy Charm for three months. We’ll see how things go.
Up until now, I was on the “waiting list” but received an email letting me know that I’ll be getting the August box. I already saw a sneak peek of a few of the things that are in the August box and I am soooooo excited for what is coming in this month’s Boxycharm.
Stay tuned for a post when I get the box in a few weeks!
Do you get BoxyCharm? Do you get any other monthly subscription bags/boxes that are worth trying out? Let me know in the comments below.
