Review Of My August Beauty Subscription Boxes – Glossybox & Birchbox

Subscription boxes are a great way to keep up to date with the latest beauty products! Especially if you’re a busy bee like me!

Here’s my thoughts on the August Glossybox (Special Pride Edition) & Birchbox (Collab with Etsy seller ‘The Lovely Drawer’)

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all doing well and not missing the heatwave toooo much! I’m now at the stage where I’ve been complaining about the cold the last few days, but hey I’m never happy with the weather! Anyway on with my review on this months Glossybox & Birchbox subscription boxes.

So month is my ONE YEAR Birchbox-versary! This time last year was when I signed up and received my first ever Birchbox. Zooom! Where has that year gone?

Although our relationship has been running for a while now, It’s no secret that I wasn’t overly happy with my last couple of Birchboxes. Mainly because as I am also a subscriber of Glossybox it’s impossible not to compare the two, and I found Birchbox had stopped exciting me (SOZ).


I must say that I am impressed with Birchbox again this month. Mainly because of these two little gems.

The first reason is that they included a Dr Botanicals product which I am a huge fan of so this was a big thumbs up for me. And the second reason I was impressed is that there was actually a nice range of products in this months box. Personally I have found the last few have been very similar and there hadn’t been a wide range of products.

Birchbox is usually £10 a month plus P&P.

I have never had too many bad words to say about Glossybox. They put a smile on my face every month, and they never let me down. As always was given a sneak peak if this months Glossybox, from an email that told me it was going to relate to PRIDE. Yay!

My favourites so far have to be the face mask and metallic sticker tattoos that came in this box! The eyeshadow is super funky and I can’t wait to try it properly!

    I actually am getting my first StitchFix tomorrow and I’m pumped! I’ve never really done anything other than snack subscription boxes, so this will be a new one for me.

  6. I have a love-hate relationship with Birchbox because the products (the size thereof) that you get is not always consistent!
    I gotta say I LOVED this Rituals shower foam and the smell is divine!

  7. The GlossyBox looks so nice! Such nice packaging xx
