Well, as promised. Here is what I got from Birchbox.com for the month of June.
Here is what I got from The Look Bag monthly box for the month of June.
I am just going to post the pictures in detail and you can make your judgments.
My biggest gripe is the fact they sent me 2 instant tanning wipes towelette things and 1 oz. bottle of Stila bronzer. A very generous amount of Stila bronzer and tanning wipes for someone who DOESN’T TAN!
I could’ve sworn I filled out the Birchbox beauty profile so they have a n idea of what products to give you, they even ask your age and salary….how could they be soo off on this one? They DID ask my ethnicity which I answered ASIAN! It asked what my style it I said I am a minimalist! Maybe minimalists like to use fake tanning. (Shrugs) And I don’t know how many Asians, Oriental to be specific who goes to the tanning salon or is out in the beach during summer just to get a tan. Most of us use umbrellas and hide from the sun! We don’t want to get dark, it’s not a good look for us! Anyone ever seen a tan Chinese girl? (sigh)
Nevertheless, this is what came in my box and it is worthless to me. I got to give it to them, the box itself is really pretty, the postcard is thoughtfully informative. It was nice of them to include the actual prices of a full size item, too bad I will never buy any of them.
They included a men’s fragrance sample in a vial, that was nice…But what about me? What did I get? I used the mask and the Benefit Benetint Knock Off. They’re ok, nothing I couldn’t get in a big box store myself. With that being said, I will not renew this beauty subscription.
Between Birchbox and The Look Bag, the look bag had better quality and luxury items. Birchbox had the prettier case. But who needs a pretty box. Subscribing to these beauty sample subscription services is about the subscriber, so he or she can find products that will work for them, that go along with their beauty habits and lifestyle. If the first box is a big disappointment and after filling out their beauty survey supposedly to help them figure out what to send you, they send you items opposite of the things you filled out. It is clear they’re not doing this for the subscriber but for their business.
