Birchbox or Glossybox? Which one do I prefer!

Hello Again
I have became somewhat addicted to this whole blogging thing... All I can think of at night when I'm laying in bed is what I'm gonna blog about next, long gone are the nights of laying counting sheep as now I'm counting lipsticks and eyeshadows instead lol.

Back in January I was sent a discount code in an email via groupon for half price subscription to Birchbox for 6 months meaning instead of £60.00 you only paid £30.00 (Not including P&P). I had never had a subscription box before so decided to spend some of my Christmas money on a 6 month subscription to Birchbox.

When I was waiting on my first Birchbox being delivered I had a look around the internet at other subscription boxes and decided to really treat myself by getting a Glossy Box as well... I had to beat the January blues somehow!

I had read mixed reviews for both boxes so thought it would be good to see the comparison between the two as they are usually the same price monthly.

My Birchbox order came first and I was surprised at how tiny the box was, it had a lovely design on it and the products were in a lovely little string bag, but I was a little let down by the tiny box.

Then came my Glossybox order and it was in a much stronger larger box on opening it the products were wrapped in pink tissue paper with a black ribbon.

Both had decent products included in them and I was happy with both boxes... This is now the third month of getting my subscription boxes and Glossybox is out in the lead at the minute for a lot of different reasons.

The presentation is ALOT nicer for Glossybox. Inside the box is black stringy cardboard so the products are well protected, compared to Birchbox where the products are just in a little pouch.

The products in Glossybox are bigger with at least 1 item being a full size product. The products are also a lot more diverse in range compared to Birchbox.

The delivery of my Birchbox has been left at different neighbours houses each time EVEN though I am in the house, so I am not impressed that I have to go to people's doors who I don't even know and chase my parcel.

I have included a picture of both of March's subscription boxes below for you to have a look at and compare. Both boxes have 6 different items.  If you get any of these boxes monthly I would love to hear your thoughts on them. :)
