My Stuff: Beauty Subscription Service

I’ve been subscribing to Bellabox and Glamabox for a few months now. It’s like a beauty product of the month kind of service. Both are under S$20 and have at least 5 sample-sized (sometimes full sized) products. I haven’t been overwhelmed by the stuff they sent but I still get excited every month to see what’s inside the pretty packages.

So far I’ve had stuff from Crabtree & Evelyn, Lierac, Phyto, Dermalogica, Clinique, Aveda amongst others. Some are actually not bad and I diligently use everything that’s suitable for my skin-type. I like that many of these things are sample-sized and I pop them into my purse or gym bag regularly. I would say that it evens out and some months are really good, some are quite disappointing. Also, both boxes came late this month. I didn’t get them till this week. I think I prefer products rather than the coupons or gift certificates that they throw in the box because the gift certificates require you to spend more money. Also,  Glamabox threw in some trinkets (i.e. giftbox shaped charms) and claims they’re worth $30 – I don’t really want these things in my beauty subscription service.

I’m sure there are other beauty subscription services around but these 2 are ok for now. I might not renew after the year is up though. Well, I’m not sure. Maybe things will get better in the next few months. It’s been an exciting few months and I love getting the parcels in the mail.

Here are some pictures of my boxes from previous months (with the remnants) as well as the unboxing of April’s Bellabox and Glamabox…
