I had been hearing awesome things about Glossybox once it hit the states, so I figured I would go ahead and check it out and see exactly what they had to offer compared to other beauty subscription services. If you aren't familiar with Glossybox, it's another beauty sample subscription service similar to Birchbox, Beauty Box Five and Beauty Army. Each month they send out a box of 5 travel-sized beauty products for the price of $21 which is higher than most beauty boxes. Even with such a high price tag monthly, I had to see what all the hype was about and find out if it really is worth that price tag. Let's take a look...
A peek at the post card: Summer Nights: "After a sizzling day in the sun, there is nothing better than a cool summer night. This month's GLOSSYBOX offers you the essentials you'll need to indulge in products that show off your sun kissed skin and hair and enhance sultry eyes. Afterwards, throw on your sexy sandals and dance the night away under the shimmering summer sky."
INSIDE THE BOX
ALESSANDRO PEDIX HEEL RESCUE BALM
As always with summer and flip flops comes dry skin on my feet and as a firm believer in at-home beauty routines rather than high spa prices, I'm always looking for something to battle that dry skin on my heels.
"This foot cream oil imported exclusively from Germany provides intensive protection and nourishes skin, leaving it soft and supple."
Full Size: $18.50 (Sample: $6.17)
FIGS & ROUGE LIP, FACE & BODY BALM
I am definitely excited to try out a balm that can multi-task! This one smells AMAZING.
"This gorgeous tin is filled with a 100% pure and natural skin balm, a multi-use wonder product that will keep your skin feeling soft and beautiful throughout the day."
Full Size: $6.00
SEBASTIAN COLOR IGNITE MULTI-TONE
SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
I have such color treated/over processed hair that I am always looking for new shampoo and conditioner duos to add some life back into my hair. I can't wait to see how this fairs.
Shampoo - "Smart color moisture complex that targets your color-treated strands, to deeply moisturize and restructure hair fibers wherever needed most"
Conditioner - "This micro-bubble conditioner whips, wraps and wows your strands leaving your hair with long-lasting color and vibrant shine."
Full Size - Shampoo $14.95 Conditioner $16,95 (Sample: Shampoo $3.02 Conditioner $2.57)
SENNA COSMETICS DOUBLE DOSE LIP LACQUER
I'll never say no to lip gloss, so this was a welcomed FULL SIZED product. I am a bit confused though because in the original post card message it talks about "sultry eyes" so I am kind of confused where the lip product fits in, I saw in some other boxes, girls had gotten eye shadow so I wonder if they ran out, either way, I'd rather have the lip gloss anyway.
"This extremely shiny gloss formula contains light reflecting pigments that make your lips appear fuller and hydrated. Vitamins and Jojoba Oil add extra conditioning to your pout"
Full Size: $22.00
Those were the 5 *travel* sized items for the month of July and I was thrilled that two were actually full sized. And much to my surprise GLOSSYBOX through in an extra surprise this month.
BLUSHED BY RUDDY WATER
I haven't heard of this brand of fragrance before so I am quite happy to try it out, I'm super excited that it's a towelette because I have been wanting to try out a perfume this way for awhile.
"A special surprise treat for you: BLUSHED fragrance by RUDDY WATER features notes of bright red currant and rich vanilla, wrapped around subtle sweet lemon, slightly spicy ginger, and kissed with a hint of sugar. Take, tuck or share this fragranced towelette. It's scent will make you blush."
Full Size: $22.00/24 Pouches
Total Value of My Box: $39.76
That value shocked me, if the $21/month price tag is something that is turning you off, you can definitely rest easy that you are getting your money's worth. I also think that GLOSSYBOX is setting the bar with such amazing high end products, that I have to say it would be worth it each month. This is definitely a service I plan to stick with and I look forward to see what they have in store for their subscribers in the future.
I would rate this box a 10/10.
