Glymm raises their prices

Yes, Glymm has raised their beauty box prices. But fret not folks!!

Members who are already receiving boxes and have been subscribed to Glymm will still benefit from the $10/box. New members signing up will have to pay the $12/month.

But Glymm has a promotion on the go where if you are looking to sign up for a box, you get the same discount as old members, if you sign up for the full year! (I know, it gets a little confusing).

Sign up here to get 6 month = $60. 12 month sign up = $108.

Are you a fan of monthly beauty boxes?

I am, but the boxes are getting a little overwhelming. I receive my GlossyBoxes for free due to the referrals, I pay for Glymm boxes and TopBoxes. I unsubscribed from Loose Button because I disliked their services and duplicate products.

GlossyBox now available to Canadians

Yet another subscription box to come to Canada. I know, we probably have the highest amount of sampler boxes around. There’s Glymm, Loose Button, Top Box and now Glossybox which originates from the UK. They guarantee five products in each box per month and sometimes throw in a sixth product. It’s also the most priciest of the bunch going for $15/month, with free shipping.

It’s starting to get a little out of control. Later on this evening if you check out my YouTube channel I’ll be unboxing my first 2012 box, which is the TopBox I received yesterday. Originally in January I had planned on doing a Glymm vs. Loose Button vs. Top Box, but I think I’ll be waiting until February to include GlossyBox as well! I’m definitely not going to stay subscribed to all four boxes because I think it’s a little much, especially looking at the cost add up at the end of the month.

I didn’t know Glossybox was available to Canadians until my friend on YouTube from Toronto, Aleeza wrote about it on her blog.

Not sure you want to sign up? I was hesitant as well. The only reason I ended up signing up for the February box, was that I was completely sold after seeing MissHanaG’s December box, again — thanks to Aleeza for pointing me towards that great box unveiling video, and to another great YouTube channel.

I like it when these subscription boxes give you deals for referring people. Click any of the Glossybox links I’ve been linking all in this blog post and you’re linked to my referral page. When you sign up, like Glymm for every friend that subscribe, Glossybox will credit you 200 GLOSSYDots as a thank you. . So that’s kind of neat.

Aleeza made a great point stating that the sample box market is getting a little saturated, however it keeps those four companies fighting for our service and perhaps the products themselves will end up getting better.

I too am going to wait until February to give my review on my first Glossybox. Stay tuned!

The deluxe referrals

Everyone’s jumping on the referral bandwagon it seems.

A Loose Button Luxe Box was the very first monthly subscription filled with girly deluxe samples of makeup, perfume, and chocolate. I’ve done a monthly review on YouTube since I first subscribed to them back in April. It used to be that you’d get a Luxe Box for $10 a month. However, recently they’ve jacked up their price to $12 a month now. I wasn’t too impressed with the change, but they did send a few nicer things last month, including a full sized hand cream. I gave most of my Luxe Box away to my co-worker (hey Julie!), because I didn’t like the scent of the coconut hand cream, and the earrings since they weren’t my style. Watch my unveiling of August’s Luxe Box here:

The bandwagon seems to be that when you refer friends, you get freebies. For the Loose Button Luxe Box, if you refer three friends you’ll receive a month free.

Honest opinions though? I still vote for Glymm Box as it’s $10 a month, and when you refer your friends you earn points. Points to put towards getting items for free at their shop!

As of right now, both the monthly subscriptions, Glymm and Loose Button are only available to Canadians. American’s – if you’re reading this you can subscribe to your very own called Birch Box. I’m not sure how expensive it is, but I do know that the samples are way smaller. Yay lucky Canadians getting deluxe samples!

I’m not sure if I want to keep signing up for both deluxe monthly box samplers — as my Loose Button expires on September 30 — and my Glymm expires after I get my October box. Though, it is kind of fun receiving little treats in the mail like that. But then again I’m paying $22.00 for those treats.
