GLOSSYBOX Review

 
Happy Friday!! It seems like there is a monthly subscription box for everything these days, and each time one comes out I think my doormen start to hate me a little more. :) Rocksbox, Birchbox, Le Tote, Stich Fix and many more have become super popular in the last couple of years, which who can resist a cute little box filled with goodies delivered to your doorstep once a month?! I was never super into Birchbox, mainly because I always had so many samples from Sephora that just sat in my drawer, but I decided to give GLOSSYBOX a try!

GLOSSYBOX is a monthly beauty subscription box that includes five luxury surprise beauty items delivered to your door for $21 a month. I have never actually tried Birchbox (I have a few friends who have) however it seemed to me like GLOSSYBOX provided bigger and better products in their boxes.






When I first received my box I was so excited to see what was inside! The box is a very clean, cute design, in of course, my favorite colors! <3



The inside of the box was wrapped up super pretty, love the floral print in the inside! (I am a sucker for pretty designs.)





Five decently sized products included in the box... all different product categories.





Flora*py Strength + Energy Mask- This mask is meant to "Awaken your mind and motivate your senses with the energy of Arnica and Rose." Enhanced with Recovery Essence 8 - a proprietary blend of vervain flower, grape-seed oil, olive oil, clary sage oil, carrot oil, almond oil, rosehip and vitamin E. I checked out their website and found that they have different types of masks including "stress-relief," "deep hydration," "anti-aging" and more. The instructions say to leave it on for 15-20 minutes and I do believe it helped with puffiness. I'd definitely be interested in trying the other masks. Retails for $8 a mask.





Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy- Infused with Shea butter, macadamia nut oil and seaweed and algae extracts, this intensive cream nourishes skin so it's noticeably smoother after each luxurious application. I absolutely LOVE this line, so I was really excited to see this hand cream in the box! It smells amazing and makes your hands feel super-soft. Retails for $9 for 25g.





Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme- Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and combat dullness and dehydration. I've actually used this product before in a bonus gift I received from Macy's and while I don't see too much of a difference, it does make my skin feel softer and hydrated without feeling oily. This creme is pretty pricey as it retails for $50 for a 1 oz jar.




Beauty For Real D-Fine Perfect Lip Pencil- I have never heard of this brand, so I did a little research and couldn't seem to find this product sold anywhere else but on their website- so it's not a very well-known brand. The actual lip liner color is a nudish tone, which works with any type of lip color. It's pretty nice to have one pencil that you can where with any lipstick or gloss. Retails for $14.




Marsk Cosmetics Mineral Eye Shadow in "You're Toast"- A great neutral brown resembling a wonderful slice of fresh toast, well done of course! 100% natural, mineral based loose powder that are strictly cruelty free (not tested on animals) and available in a range of striking shades that offer endless color possibilities for a professional makeup effect. Featuring a creamy texture, these highly pigmented powders are easily blend-able and offer you the ability to create depth and intensity around the eye. I do like the color, however I am not a huge fan of mineral eye shadow so it's not my favorite. Retails for $22.50.

All-in-all, I was happy with my first months box. Would I purchase all these products on my own? Probably not, but it's nice to try different products without having to buy a full size product. I am excited to see what's in next months box!

  2. That box has the cutest packaging! I'm just starting to expand into the world of the beuaty box, but was so pleased with my first one! (my mail men are getting annoyed with the number of packages I get too!)
