BirchBox comes to Canada but Not Quebec


For years now I have been drooling over BirchBox and was really disappointed to discover that they only shipped in the USA.  But C’est la vie right. Its not their fault they don’t ship to Canada, right?

Well imagine my surprise last week when I saw on instagram announcing they were coming to Canada. Not going to lie but I was thrilled and I must admit I did a happy dance and perhaps screamed and yelled a bit.

So for the past week I kept dreaming about BirchBox (I signed up to get email notifications and to their facebook page) and all the great goodies I would get to try and discover. I even went as far as to start working on a blog post and designing a button for my posts to even thinking about perhaps vlogging it. BirchBox was going to be the exception to the rule when it came to a new subscription box.

Well that happy little dream came crashing down over my head when I found out from a facebook friend that yes indeed BirchBox was coming to Canada but not to Quebec! What? What do you mean BirchBox is excluding Quebec? How freaking crazy is that?

So I instantly took to their facebook page to see if there was a valid reason and guess what? There is no valid reason just a very generic reply of

We so sorry for any inconvenience! The good news is we are actively looking into bringing Birchbox to Quebec in the near future, and we appreciate your patience in the meantime.

People have commented that it has to do with the language law and I am sorry i don’t buy that since other USA subscription boxes are delivered here (Ipsy, Beauty Box 5, Julep, Fortune Cookie Soap etc) with no problems.

Sadly BirchBox is probably losing out on a market here because we were all excited to hear that they were coming to Canada. I clearly think that this should have been mentioned before that they were excluding Quebec and not until afterwards when enough hype was built up about it. Perhaps that was their plan?

I have to admit that this left a bad taste in my mouth and I honestly think that BirchBox is going to have to do a hell of a lot to get us Quebec’ers on board when and if they ever launch here in Quebec. So for now guess what BirchBox? My money will be going towards GlossyBox USA which seems to have no problem shipping to Quebec.

To my Quebec friends, readers and followers would you subscribe to BirchBox?

Glossy Box Is Coming to Canada


I am honestly going to admit that Glossy Box was one of my all time favorite beauty box subscription services that I use to get. Personally for me I loved getting that pink box each month. The box itself is very sturdy and I have reused all my boxes for something. Please note that I am not being paid to say this, this is my honest and sincere opinion.

I was never disappointed (okay I was when the Canadian section closed up shop) because it was brands I knew and loved. Plus we would get brands that I never tried or heard of before. Which is good and that’s the purpose of these boxes to expose you to new things.

Its been well over a year without Glossy Box here in Canada so image my surprise when they announced that they were coming to Canada and they are SHIPPING TO QUEBEC. I ain’t gonna lie I did break out my happy dance and a few (over the time) cheers. I am super excited for my first box to come and yes I did sign up for this subscription service.

About Glossy Box:

There are four different types of GLOSSYBOX subscriptions: a monthly package ($21/month), a 3-month package ($60), a 6-month package ($115), and a 12 month package ($220). All regular subscriptions are recurring, unless cancelled within the term deadline.

*Canadian addresses will incur a $5 shipping fee. ($26 USA)

Every month, they curate a selection of high-end, niche, and trendy beauty products in deluxe travel sizes to be included in your GLOSSYBOX.

Every month, they deliver five hand-picked beauty products straight to your doorstep. I believe 5 items is the min amount you will receive. I checked out past boxes and you do get quite a bit of items.

I should be getting my first box hopefully this month and as soon as I get it I will do a vlog and a blog post.

Is anyone else excited that Glossy Box is coming to Canada?
