Boxes

Birchbox vs Ipsy vs Beauty Box 5 {January 2016}

This month I received the monthly box/bag for Birchbox, Ipsy, and Beauty Box 5. So I wanted to compare and contrast the boxes and see what gave the best experience, and for what reasons. It’s worth noting that this month I received 2 boxes from Birchbox, and those will both be included in this comparison as separate items.

*I also subscribed to Julep, but due to the vastly different nature of that subscription, it is not included in my January 2016 box battle*

Most Fun To Open: Birchbox – Korean Beauty

The Korean Beauty Box, even knowing what was coming, was definitely the funnest box I opened this month, and my favorite overall. It had one time use products that were cool to experiment with, and the RE:P mask that I’m up to around a dozen uses without making much of a dent in the tube. The lip tint they gave was awesome, smelled great, and is an affordable product that I could see myself repurchasing. Birchbox wins!
