On the same day I heard about 2 new beauty subscription services. I'm sure it's clear by now that I'm a subscription crackhead, so I had to give 'em both a try. One I've been wowed by two months in a row. The other...... not so much.
My Glam is $10 a month, so I'm not losing sleep over my disappointment with their service, but still. Their December and January kits looked AWESOME- I was like a kid waiting for Santa to come. Seems I'm not the only one let down by this month's package. I have seen maybe ONE positive review of the current shipment. I'm going to give them another month to prove themselves. First of all- WHY have me take a quiz to "personalize" my kit when everyone gets the exact same thing no matter what? WHY ship everything in a makeup bag every month? How many tiny makeup bags do I need? I'd rather have another beauty item. WHY have almost everything enclosed be something I can get at Walgreens? And finally WHY count a "gift certificate" that requires me to spend fifty to a hundred bucks as a kit inclusion? On top of that, they charged my card at the beginning of January but didn't ship me anything until mid February. On the day I got my first My Glam kit, I got my SECOND Beauty Army, and I signed up for them on the same day.
Beauty Army is two dollars more, but big whoop. Their customer service is INCREDIBLE (they email you the tracking info when it goes out, then send you a second email the day before it's set to arrive). You get to choose 6 different items out a pick of 9, or you can have them curate your kit for you. You take a quiz to determine what products you're offered, and they actually give everyone different choices! (ahem, Myglam....) The product choices are comprised of high end and luxury brands so you're really getting a chance to try out pricey items to see if they float your boat before selling the farm. All in all, I'm THRILLED. let's just say that right now Birchbox better watch out, cause these guys might just kick your ass.
When I made my video I accidentally left out this pumpkin fleur de sel scrub, so I have to tell you that this might be one of the most fabulous things to ever touch my body.
