myGalm vs. Birchbox April

So this took me forever to post! i have been super duper busy lately, that there are stacks of post it notes all over my office for things I NEED to do. i have lists and lists of DIY I’d love to do, products that I’ve been wanting to buy and try, and other things i need to organize and build around the house. I will take you with me during all those upcoming projects.

For now, let me share with you what I received in both of my Birchbox and myglam bag for this month. I received my Birchbox on April 11th, and myglam bag got here a day or two after that.

Birchbox had:

Atlier Cologne- Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue

Marula The Leakey Collection- Omega Rich Pure Marula oil

Waleda- pomegranate Firming Night Cream

Zoya- TRUE Spring Collection

Yes To Blueberries- Brightening Facial Towelettes

In myGlam I received:

All-Belle- Eyelashes

Urban Decay- 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil

Dermstore- Lip Quench Moisture Infused Lip Treatment

myglam- All Over Eyeshadow Brush & Eyeliner Brush

Plus the little cute pouch as usual.

for this month, I think they both win!

First of all, they got here around my birthday, which was sweet. Also, they both have decent collection and products that will be useful to me. The lashes from myGlam look pretty, the brushes will be handy and I can add them now the one i received last month. The Waleeda night cream and Yes To Bluberries towelettes will be great for traveling this summer. I just noticed the name of the Zoya nail polish is Farah (aww it means Happiness in Arabic), that’s cute!

The products from both subscriptions are great, and I am pretty happy with this month’s choices.

Smackdown. MYGlam bag vs. BirchBox for March

This post will be direct and straight to the point. What I received from both subscriptions for the month of March and what I liked the most.

Let’s start with MYGlam bag. I received it on March 11th, and here is the product breakdown:

As always, a cute mini makeup bag.

Pur-lisse Pur-Protect SPF30 Essential Daily Moisturizer.

Murad Eye Life Perfector.

DermStore $25 gift card.

Pur-lisse Pur-Lip Comfort Daily Lip Nourisher.

Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-in treatment.

MyGlam Classic Crease Brush & Case.

What I like:

The Pur-Lisse lip nourisher & the crease brush. The other items will be used only once and normally they don’t capture my attention. Rarely could you judge a product from using it once!

let’s move onto the Birchbox for this month. I received it today, March 12th. Here is the product breakdown:

Color club nail Lacquer in Age of Aquarius.

Harvey Prince Yogini perfume.

Juice Beauty blemish Clearing Cleanser.

Lulu Organics Lavender + Clay Sage Hair Powder

Stila Smokey Eye Card

Tea Forte Skin Smart Teas

What I like:

I am actually very excited to try all these samples from Birchbox. The sample sizes I received are very decent and way better than the MYGlam samples for this month. Now, it’s already spring and it is the time to start taking care of toning and cleansing your body; therefore, I am excited to be trying the Tea Forte packets. I received three flavors: Cucumber Mint, Honey Yuzu, and Cherry Marzipan. They all sound delicious. Oh how much I love tea!

Also, I am always down to trying new dry shampoos, this one smells delicious. The nail polish color is so pretty and perfect for the spring. The Yogini scent is very relaxing and the blemish cleaner is going to be very handy.

Bottom Line, who is the winner in my eyes for this month?

BirchBox is.

Here is what I got in my Birchbox for this month.
1. Eye Rock designer eyeliner. I am pretty excited to try that. I will have a review on it soon.
2. Glow and Go Travel Puff self tanner.
3. Jouer luminizing moisture tint. Previously I received the clear moisturizer and I loved it. I am excited to use this one a well.
4. Dermalogica daily Microfoliant.
A couple cute other things:
1. Hot pink heart shaped nail filer.
2. A code to download a free track for Green River Ordinance. I’ve never heard of them before.

I cannot wait to receive my Glam bag and compare it to this.

Happy weekend everyone!
