#Hotness – Fab Subscription Services We Love

What girl (or grown woman) doesn’t love trying new products and well playing in make-up?  What would you do if I told you that for as little as $10 a month you can get 4-5 full-size or sample size products delivered right to your door?  Does the sound of that make your stomach flutter like it did mine?  If your first response was ‘Where do I sign up?’ then this #Hotness post is just for you! 

My two favorite monthly subscription services are MyGlam and Birchbox

Each month subscribers of MyGlam will receive a beautiful Glam Bag filled with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products to try; delivered right to your door…all for, get this…$10/month. (Doing the happy dance)  In addition to the monthly products that you will receive, subscribers can also watch the MyGlam YouTube channel to find out how to use the products and are encouraged to try new looks.  Now I will be the first to admit that the good people over at MyGlam are targeting a much younger demographic (18 – 25 year old) because some of the video themes and demos are a bit young (back to school make-up anyone?) however the products found in their monthly bags (which are the cutest things) are for all women no matter how old you are. Yes, 40+ year old mother of 3, you too can be a MyGlam bag subscriber!  I have been a subscriber (and yes, I am a 40+ year old mother of 3) since April and I will be the first to tell you that I have yet to be disappointed. 

Here is a look inside my August Glam Bag:

Clean Skin | Roll-on oil
 MyGlam | Glam gloss

Another subscription service that I get, that I absolutely love is Birchbox.  Birchbox is a smart, streamlined, and fun way to discover high-end beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products. Co-founders Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp both Harvard schoolmates created Birchbox to help consumers cut through the clutter of the retail world to find products that really work for them.  (Thank you ladies!)  For just $10/month, you will receive a selection of samples that they have tried both from well-known brands to emerging gems.  Each month you can expect to receive products ranging from skincare to make-up as well as fun non-beauty extras.  Birchbox also launched their men’s subscription service delivering top-tier grooming products in addition to lifestyle accessories ranging from hip socks to tech accessories. 

Here is a peek inside what was in my August Birchbox:

It’s time to dump that make-up you’ve been wearing since high school/college and try something new. The best thing about both these subscription services is that you can cancel at any time!  So why not try something new and sign up for one or both today? 

It’s time to let your inner DIVA shine!
