3 More Luxury Beauty Sample Subscriptions for Canadians
|February 22, 2012||Posted by under Green Living, Health & Beauty, Luxury Life on a small budget|
Last fall I spoke about my LuxeBox, then GlymmBox and just recently I found out about 2 more luxury sample beauty boxes available to Canadians! I also found a US one which is all eco-friendly and now ships to international customers!! Honestly, I had no idea this kind of beauty marketing would become so popular in Canada. We now have 4 types of monthly subscriptions available to us for luxury beauty products & now we can receive the US eco-friendly one. Wow! Two of them are sold out right now though!
I currently have LuxeBox, GlymmBox and GlossyBox subscriptions. I will get my first Glossybox in March. TopBox was sold out so I was unable to get that one right now. There is no way I am keeping all my subscriptions but am getting them all for a few months and decide which two I like best.
I had been disappointed with LuxeBox for a couple of months but the last two boxes I received were incredible. Subscribers don’t always get the same products as I’ve noticed from some video reviews on YouTube. When you subscribe, you fill out a beauty profile so the products are picked for you based on the information you give.
All I know is that these boxes have kept me out of Sephora for the most part and from buying all kinds of beauty products elsewhere. I get everything I need and more. And it’s all the good stuff. Seriously. Right now the cost is a whopping $38/month for three subscriptions. Ouch. Still not terrible for receiving a few hundred dollars worth of stuff. And I actually use most of it. The things I don’t use I keep to put in gift baskets for people. Nothing is lost as I get to share my goodies with friends too.
I agree that purchasing beauty products at a dollar store or drugstore might be cheaper but sadly not better for my skin. I want to be able to get the good stuff but not pay the price and these boxes are definitely the best way to achieve that goal.
All this being said, I travel a lot and many of the products are perfect sizes for travel. Since I get a variety of items I get to try new types of products out and I end up knowing what I like and don’t like. I am not particularly brand loyal and I’m always open to trying everything. If I run out of a certain skin cream, another one pops up in another box. I never run out of product and I also never seem to have too much either which is surprising.
For me, it’s very worth it. For some it may not be. I would say for most people one subscription would be enough.
These monthly gifts every month have kept my spirits up and I plan to do a video of my GlymmBox this week so you can see!
AND FINALLY A MONTHLY GREEN/ORGANIC BOX IS AVAILABLE!! ECO EMI is now offering subscriptions outside of the US! It’s $30/month so a little pricier than the other boxes but you are guaranteed all organic and/or green products. I bought one which I will receive next month. I won’t keep subscribing as I find it a little pricey but I purchased one to check it out and also to share its contents with you. Stay tuned for that.
