March Ipsy vs March Birchbox.

Okay,  so this is only the second month in a row that I received both Ipsy and Birchbox. This is the third month for Birchbox as when I joined they sent it out that month, but Ipsy waited until the next. Is it bad that my lack of patience makes Birchbox have one extra point on my score board? Instant gratification is nice. I will be honest that I haven’t used any of these products yet. With that said I still wanted to share what both subscription services are like.


This is the bag the products came in. I love the colors and design. I would actually use this bag. The card had pictures of four of the Ipsy stylist. The back had details on sharing your products on social media.


Product 1: A FULL SIZE Nyx Lipstick Butter…wow. This an amazing item to receive. Full size = Amazing. Nyx Full Size = O.M.G!!!!


Product 2: LeeAnni Eco 3 in 1 Revolution Light. This product says it is a toner, serum, and moisturizer all in one cream. I like the idea of being able to cut some corners so am excited to try this!


Procuct 3: Pur~lisse, which is a gentle soy cleanser and makeup remover. On Ipsy’s website this received a 4 out of 5 rating with over 18,000 reviews, so also a good product to be included in the March bag.


Product 4: An infinity shadow/crease brush by Crown Brush. This is also a full size product so two in one Month. Boom!


Product 5: This Pixi by Petra Mesmerizing Mineral Duo. These are great shades for Spring and Summer! I will say this sample was pretty small, but eyeshadows seem to last a long time even when they are small.


Now it is time to focus on Birchbox:

This is the box it came in. I am always very pleased with the boxing. I don’t know what I will do with them, but I do like the looks of the box.


This is the inside of the box, which always features a card with the details of each product, which is really nice to have as you look at the products.


Product 1: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleansing kit. This product features a one time sample of a hot cloth cleansing treatment. With over 13,000 reviews on Birchbox’s site and a 4 our of 5 stars, I am pretty excited to try this!


Product 2: Elite Therapeutics Eucalyptus Rosemary Body Creme, which contains nourishing botanicals. This sounds like a relaxing skin care product. I will be honest about the fact that I am VERY picky about my lotions so I wasn’t super excited to see this sample.


Product 3:  Another skin care product! Roloxin Lift Revitalizing Treatment comes with one treatment to help fade fine lines and wrinkles. The only down side to this is about any treatment takes more than one to see any difference so not sure if this will show if it is worth buying the $110 product…we will see.


Product 4: Jelly Pong Pong Go Getter Highlighter..Yay! Bring on the glow! I love receiving products like this, because it is fun and versatile. It doesn’t hurt that the name is super HILARIOUS!


Product 5: This, it’s a 10, product I was actually able to pick before hand. There were two or three options (I can’t remember now..) I picked this because it had been so long I needed a refresher on if it is really a miracle product. I also chose this sample because it appeared much larger than the other samples.

    1. Absolutely! I Recieved Ipsy as a Xmas gift and then I decided to try Birchbox to compare. Honestly, $10 is very fair for both subscriptions thus far. Check back over the next couple months and maybe it will help you pick one 🙂
