I wanted to become a member for a monthly sample box like Birchbox but Birchbox doesn't accept paypal, and I was going to join Eco Emi but they're full and not taking new people right now. Does anyone have any suggestions for good beauty sample boxes?
Luxe box only ships to Canada as of right now
In the US:
Yellow Box Beauty
Loose Button (Luxe Box)

Try Glymm in Canada! They haven't seemed to launch yet but a friend in fashion got their press release last week! They must be launching soon!
I doubt they're launching soon since their website says "coming Spring 2011" and tomorrow is the first day of summer.
does anyone know any monthly samples boxes in the u.k?

Try Eco-Emi again! I don't think they're full, you might just have to wait a bit longer for your first box. Love these 'monthly' boxes, if anyone knows of others, I'd be interested.
Eco Emi is still fill, but I signed up to be notified when they're no longer full and they're taking new people. I really want to sign up for a monthly box, but Birchbox doesn't accept paypal unless you get a yearly membership which I dont want
Do you have a personal account with Paypal? If you have one that accepts credit/debit cards then you can use your Paypal Mastercard (debit card) to order.
Which one is the cheapest in the US?:) I've been interested but it's hard to add it into the monthly budget;) haha
Birchbox is only $10/month with free shipping and EcoEmi (when its available for new people again) is $15/month with free shipping. I think those two are the cheapest!
Birchbox: $10 per month.
Test Tube: $38.90 (after shipping) every three months (which works out to roughly $13 per month BUT you get deluxe samples plus a magazine)
Yellow Box Beauty $42.90 (after shipping)
Makeup Monthly $30 per month (no idea if that includes shipping)
Beauty Fix $49.99 per season (4 times per year)

I agree! Birchbox is awesome, especially for the price! And the packaging is absolutely beautiful!

Test Tube is $29.95 a month and it ships 4 times a year, but it comes with a magazine and a $20 gift card to spalook.com, so really, it's $9.95 :)
@Stormy - you're forgetting that they charge for shipping so the price is actually $38.90 which breaks down to $12.97 per month (if someone wants to compare it to Birchbox). And that $20 gift card is more of a coupon since you have to spend at least $100 to use that $20 card.

@Yasmin - thanks for that bit of information! I didn't realize that you had to spend $100 to use the $20, I'm really glad I didn't get the Test Tube.
to Vicky D: Glossy Box in the UK is a good one :)
I think it's sneaky, Sephora gave out $15 "gift cards" but you have to spend $50 to use it. To me it's not a gift card, it's a coupon when there are restrictions. No restrictions = gift card.
Thanks so much! I'm waiting on my first Birchbox, and I've already gotten my Eco-Emi box so I guess I'll just see how these go!
