I have not done subscription box unboxing for some time- that is because I have overcome subscription box addiction for the most part. I tend to have "all or nothing" attitude in general, and when I first started to subscribe, I subscribed to most - over 20 boxes in fact.
Soon, my little residence was filled with boxes and boxes, different potions and candles, ribbons and endless makeup items. It became overwhelming physically, almost suffocating to have so much cosmetics I had hard time finding place to store, let alone use them myself.
Out of emotional freedom or want for it, I started to unsubscribe most of the boxes. Now I only keep two- Ipsy for cosmetics and Love with Food for snacks I take to work, both about $10/mo.
Birchbox is also $10. Ipsy and Birchbox are similar, but I stuck with Ipsy because of the pouches- I Like bags in general, so having a pouch in addition 5 cosmetic samples is a big plus for me.
Last month though, Birchbox ha d a promotion so I decided to subscribe again. Birchbox also has a very good reward points. And customer service is wonderful. Having said that, let's dive in....
Birchbox' theme this month is "next stop: adventure"
Overall, it's an okay box for me- not terrible but not overly exciting. I would give one more month try.
And on to Ipsy.
This month's bag is foamy texture with Ipsy logo raised all over one side- um, not big fan of brand logos. ;-(
As the bag is a huge appeal for me, this is a let down.... Again, just personally.
Nuxe gentle excoriating gel - I can't wait to try this one!
Overall, I really like Ipsy this month despite the bag itself wasn't to my taste.
And now it's late... I should be receiving July delivery soon. Looking forward to them ;-)
