August Beauty Box Battle: Glossybox vs Beautecobox

In the constant battle of beauty boxes and with so many choices available out there, I thought I should do a 'vs' post to help some of you peeps decide which beauty box you should go for if you're still a beauty box virgin.

First up, is the cult-favourite, over talked about Glossybox. Having said that, it's the first one I knew of that was big in the UK so it deserves every word of praise especially for the branding it has created. Having a look at what I have received for my August box, I'd say it's quite a random mix actually. I see a Purity Cleanser, a Jelly Pong Pong Eye Shadow Stick which can also be used as an eye liner, a make-up remover/corrector pen, an eye lash curler and a sample of Viva La Juicy.

I'd say if you like experimenting with your make-up, skincare and beauty tools in general and would seriously like to be surprised with your monthly products, then opt for this. It's literally like a lucky dip and you wont' be able to predict what's in there.

If you're a constant moaner of a consumer and like your bang for the buck and all that jazz, the new but steadily established Beautecobox will be your best bet. Now I don't think as the name suggests that all the products in here are 100% organic in all the boxes. Well, that's what I think. I feel their boxes are green hence the name? I might be wrong so do correct me. What's important is that, you will be taken by a pleasant surprise by this one and will have expected to receive these bits in your monthly box anyway.

They play safe with the brands, colours and formulations which is a good thing for those who want full value for money. Especially as Beautecobox contains full sized or travel sized products most of the times instead of teeny tiny samples. This months box containes a Face Wash, Melvita Facial Spray, Serum, Lord & Berry Lipstick and Lord & Berry Lip Liner (which isn't featured here because it's been nicked by a family member before I could photograph it!)

As for the usability of these products, I'll surely get more use out of the products contained in Beautecobox. No offence Glossybox, I sometimes LOVE your boxes but I don't curl my lashes and use a cotton bud to correct make-up mistakes. Also, that Juicy Couture perfume I love. Maybe a slightly bigger sample next time?
