Boxycharm vs. Glossybox - January 2017

I started doing a Battle of the Boxes between Birchbox, ipsy and Play! by Sephora and thought I’d continue that and do a Battle of the Boxes between BOXYCHARM and GLOSSYBOX!  Both are $21/month and promise five (or five to six in the case of Boxycharm) beauty items delivered to your door.  Let’s compare the March 2017 boxes shall we?

It was hard to pick a winner this month.  To me, both boxes were great value wise, but neither really jumped out at me.  But, there has to be a winner and this month it was….GLOSSYBOX!  The Tarte was my favorite product from both boxes this month and it’s what pushed me over the edge for GLOSSYBOX!

Do you get BOXYCHARMGLOSSYBOX? Both?  Which did you prefer this month?

    I’m sorry but that Mary Kay Sample set is not worth anywhere near the $50. They overinflated their prices and their reps have to give away free products and discounts on them so You can’t take it at face value. Value wise they’re pretty close the bigger issue this month was the cheapest thing in the box also exploded in glossybox and that should be considered as well when subscribing to a box.
