Box Wars {Birchbox vs BeautyGram}

I have to say that my fascination for subscription boxes or box gifts has gone through the roof this past week! Every month I count down like a 6 year old child waiting for Christmas to receive my Birchbox goodies! Since I received two gift boxes this week I thought it would be fun to compare the two. The Birchox is the one I am most familiar with so let's start with that one:)

4 out of 4 Stars for the Birchbox

There is a reason the Birchbox is the standard by which every other box subscription is measured. Their packaging is pristine(has the wow-factor) and the samples are well thought out. You will be anxiously awaiting for the mailman to come to your door! This month there was a food sample included, which I found sort of strange. The food item seemed slightly out of place with the glamor goods. I did appreciate the neon headphones included in this months box...what a cool idea!

2 out of 4 Stars for Baby by BeautyGram

This week I also received Baby by BeautyGram, which is a gift box(not a subscription). It is a bit pricey ringing in at $73.00. You are getting full-sized and high-quality organic products. Packaging is alright, but compared to the Birchbox the "wow factor" falls flat. The most interesting item that came in the box was a laundry soap bar, which I have never seen before. I like this as a gift for the first time mom. This is not something you would purchase for yourself so it is nice to get a gourmet gift such as this.

The extra BOO *BeautyGram is a Canadian company so you will also be paying heftily for US shipping:(
