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 May 2017 boxes shall we?

I wasn’t over the moon about either one of these May boxes, but there has to be a winner, so I am going with BOXYCHARM!  I did like GLOSSYBOX, but it contained a dupe (I had received the polish in a previous GLOSSYBOX), so that’s what pushed BOXY over the top.

Do you get BOXYCHARMGLOSSYBOX? Both?  Which did you prefer in May?
