February Monthly Subscription Boxes Comparison

This month has been a very exciting month, another contender in the beauty box subscription joins the ring.  And the box that wins this month is...Glossybox!

Luxury - Topbox was the winner this month in terms of the degree of luxury of the products received.  I really liked the two YSL products that I received this month.  Glymm comes in dead last because I received a Burts Bee lip balm and Sula eyeshadow.  Luxebox and Glossybox scored the same; they were lower than Topbox, but didn't really outdo each other.

Quantity: Samples Received - Glossybox won this month because it had the most samples received. Topbox and Luxebox tied because I received the same amount of samples in both boxes.  Glymm comes in last again.

Quantity: Full Size Products Received - Glymm comes in first in this category because I received 2 full sized samples, while the other boxes gave me one or less than one.

Range of Products - Glosstbox wins this round with the wide range of products that I received.  I received perfume, hair care, lip product, face care, and body care.  Luxebox comes in second with only hitting three categories - nail, hair, and body care.  Glymm and Topbox got low marks in this category because they hit less than three categories.

Timeliness - Glossybox was the first box to come, while luxe box and topbox came on the same day.  Glymm lost major points in this category because their brand partner did not ship on time and resulted in boxes being delivered late.

Glossybox comes in first this month based on the average of the score with Luxebox coming in at a close second.  I would say that the major competition is between these two boxes now.  I don't think Glymm and Topbox operate at the same level as Luxebox and Glossybox, and I probably won't renew my subscription with them when my annual subscription runs out with them.

    I compared Glymm to Luxebox a while ago and Luxebox lost the battle.
    At first I was receiving high end brands, and last December I received 2 drugstore products. I also received an expired product who was replaced by a cheaper item. When I contacted them on twitter and by email about issues, luxebox ignored me. I ditched them. They're the worst.

    1. I actually think that Glymm has a higher tendency to give me drug store brands than Luxebox. It's unfortunate that Luxebox didn't respond to you. Maybe one day you will reconsider since I really do like Luxebox better than Glymm.

  3. Luxe box is the worst for me. I keep getting the smallest samples and never any "great" products. No velour lashes, no package with tons of perfumes in it. I don't know why I was 'left out' of this. But I unsubscribed from them this month. I plan on doing a subscription box comparison on my blog very soon. Thinking the end of the month when they all come in, so I can take photos etc.

    1. You can consider re-doing your beauty profile in the future. Hopefully, you will consider luxe box again after this month.

    2. They give out whatever they feel like giving.. leftovers from other boxs etc.. waste of money.

      There customer service is so bad.

      Too each there own I guess..
