May 2015 Beauty Subscription Box Comparison - Ipsy vs. Beauty Box 5 vs. Topbox vs. Birchbox Canada

This is the last month I will be comparing the 4 inexpensive beauty boxes - Ipsy, Beauty Box 5, Topbox, and Birchbox Canada. May was my last month of Beauty Box 5 and I have chosen not to re-subscribe! You can go here to view my past comparisons including Beauty Box 5, and I will continue to compare Ipsy, Topbox and Birchbox Canada. 

Here is my chart comparison:

Here is a closer look at the 4 boxes:

Generally, I liked this month's Ipsy bag. The value of the bag was good and the variety in the bag was great this month! I loved the make-up bag this month (it's awesome!) and I liked the CC Cream, Eye masks, and lip primer. I also liked that I received a new eye liner color and I will try and use the leave in conditioner - it smells great!

This is my last Beauty Box 5 in my year subscription. My year has been up and down, but the year ended on a decent note. The value was okay, and this box did include a couple full size items. I liked the makeup brush, tweezers, and dermalogica product. The blush was not for me and the hand soap was meh. Overall, I will use 4 out of the 5 products which is good.

Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the whole May Topbox together! You can view the full post on my May Topbox here

The May Topbox included an eyeshadow, face wash, night cream, and hair spray. The value of this month was actual the lowest I have ever seen in a Topbox, but I generally liked the products I received. I was happy to see The Face Shop this month and I was happy with the 2 products, I liked the eyeshadow and was not happy with the hair sample (it was just small and not something I found useful)!

This month's Birchbox was a bit of a let down. The value was good, but most of it was from a purple lip pencil that just did not work for me at all. The rest of the products were okay - the eye cream is good, but the lotion was too strong, the body wash is okay but not exciting, and the hair spray is not a product I will use. I have to say that after 6 months I have already been questioning my subscription to Birchbox. I will stick it out for a few more months, but if all I keep getting is lotion and body wash, it isn't worth it to me.

I think out of all 4, Ipsy did the best job this month of delivery products I like and will use and gave me a great variety too!!!
