Battle of the beauty boxes - June 2013

This month I thought I'd try something a little different. Instead of my usual beauty box reviews, I thought it might be fun to do a bit of a comparision post instead:

BeauteCo june 2013

Starting with the June BeauteCo box and as I've mentioned previously, there are a choice of 3 boxes each month. I went for menu 2, which includes an impressive 3 full sized products. In particular I'm really looking forward to trying the Balance me wonder eye cream. These days, I'm very much a balm cleanser type of girl, but the Organic surge cleansing lotion is surprisingly nice, and I've actually been putting it to good use on days when I've not been wearing very much make up. The only product I'm not keen on is the Headline nail polish (gold isn't really my colour), however with the pre set menu I knew exactly what I'd be getting, and the other 4 products more than makes up for this.

Glossybox June 2013

Whilst the June BeauteCo box is very skincare heavy, Glossybox have gone for more of a diverse approach. Burgandy is one of my favourite nail colours, so the Mememe nail varnish couldn't have been more perfect. The Fig & rouge lip balm is lovely too, and having heard a lot of good things, I'm really looking forward to giving Sarah Chapman skincare a try. It was also nice to try the new Hugo Boss perfume ahead of it's official UK launch date. The only downside is that bar the Mememe nail varnish, there are no other full sized samples this month.

Overall, there are things that I like and dislike about both boxes. If you'd like to see what you're getting beforehand and prefer more natural brands, then BeauteCo would be the best box for you. On the other hand, if you'd like to try a more diverse selection of products (including some of the more niche brands) and don't mind the smaller samples sizes, then Glossybox would be your best bet.

Are you a beauty box subscriber? Of the two, which one would you prefer?
