Hey guys! Welcome back. I wanted to talk to you today about two subscription services I have tried. I tried Ipsy for almost a year and then made the switch to Boxycharm. I started with Ipsy because it is more affordable and I wanted to see if subscription services would be something I would enjoy. So I wanted to share my thoughts on the two. If you don’t know Ipsy and Boxycharm are both beauty subscription services. Both send you four to five products a month. Ipsy retails for $10 a month and you get trial sized and some full sized products. Boxycharm retails for $21 a month and you get full sized products. So they are both pretty affordable considering what comes in each month.

I was subscribed to Ipsy for almost a year and then decided that I wasn’t really into it. It is great considering it is only $10 a month, but I wasn’t really getting products that excited me. I did get some great items but for a year long subscription I only got two or three products that I really enjoyed. Plus I was not a big fan of the trial sized products when people who are subscribed to Boxycharm get full sized products for only $11 more.

Boxycharm releases a lot of full sized high end products. My box was $21 and it was worth over $140. That is crazy to me. I saved over $100 on products that I would not have been able to try without Boxycharm. I received products from It Cosmetics, Laura Geller, and other brands that are way out of my price range.

So I think if you are going to try one of these subscription services, you should try Boxycharm. You will be able to try a ton of products for a fraction of the cost. Don’t get me wrong, Ipsy is great, but I think Boxycharm has a better value and it just excites me more. I look forward to my next Boxycharm!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to like this if you enjoyed this post. Let me know which one you prefer in the comments and why. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!

    Can you put photos sometimes of the products that come in the boxes? 🙂 It’d be so nice to see it!

    I started trying Ipsy this year and will probably give it the entire 12 months of bags before deciding whether or not to keep it (: I used to be subscribed to a few different things, but had to cut back once we started saving for our future house. I kept Ipsy cause I had just started it and it was only $10/month. I think if I’m ever NOT working 24/7 I’d love to try Boxycharm, but honestly the small size and amount of items I get in Ipsy is just enough for me and my current lifestyle! I love watching ppl unbox both of them though

    1. I did Ipsy for 11 months. I started last June and only just decided to give Boxycharm a try. I honestly love it because most of the boxes are over $100 in value. I do give Ipsy its dues though. It is a great subscription service.
