Birchbox vs Glossybox – June 2014

What could be better than returning home from holiday – fabulous Royal Caribbean cruise of the Baltics, but more about that later! – than to find both my Birchbox and Glossybox waiting for me!

Stuff the bills sitting alongside, let’s see the goodies!!

Birchbox & Glossybox - June 2014

Glossybox and Birchbox contents- June 2014

 

With it being summer I was expecting tanning products galore, not one to be seen 🙂

Glossybox have gone for the typical summer sunshine theme, which Birchbox are straight in with the hype of the World Cup with a Brazilian theme.

Inside the Glossybox we have:

nailgirls 3-in-1 Base, Topcoat and Nail Strengthener
TeeezTrend Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush
Rituals… Qi Gong Anti-Perspirant Spray
Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo
So Susan Cosmetics Universal Blush

All-in-all, at first rummage, the products match the theme well and I’m happy to try all the products.  All except the shampoo are full size and the blush is a shade I’d pick up 🙂

In addition there’s a nice glossy (obviously!) magazine a free gift code for Rituals…

Nice work Glossybox!

Inside the Birchbox we have:

BeautyBlender + BlenderCleanser
Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick in shade Litchi
OPI Nail Lacquer in shade Where Did Suzi’s Man-Go?
Coola Classic Face SPF30 Cucumber
Caudalie Divine Oil
and a little extra Brazilian keyring…

Some great brands here… I have been wanting to try the BeautyBlender for a while, so I’m super-pleased to try that, Caudalie Divine Oil is a generous size and I know I love it 😉  For the lippie and the nail polish the shades are far from my choosing, but I will still give them a try.

Some fun info snippets in the Birchbox, which I love, but I do prefer the Glossybox magazine.  There’s an offer of free shipping on this month’s brands, and a competition to win full-size versions when you share your pics on Twitter or Instagram.

The Verdict?

A really tricky one, Birchbox certainly has the edge on brands for me this month, but I can see me using ALL the products in Glossybox until they’re empty. Two very good boxes 🙂
