I waited for a bit sign up, wanting to make sure the boxes seemed like they'd be worthwhile. This month, I finally took the plunge!
GlossyBox, like other services, sends out around 5 beauty samples a month. GlossyBox promises truly deluxe samples of both US brands and worldwide. The US GlossyBox does promise at least one full sized product per box! It is more expensive, though, at $21 a month. They have begun to send out different box variations as of this month, so I'm really interested to see if the beauty profile plays a part with this one.
Here's my June box!
I love the outer packaging - so cute and different with the little GlossyBox logo all over it.
Inside, I found this GlossyMag. It's basically a beauty and trend guide. This one has the theme of "Summer's Natural Beauty" and I'm excited to really look through it. I think this is a nice addition to the box.
LOVE these boxes. So pretty and sturdy and perfect for storage.
Cute! The card tells me that this month's theme is Summer Simplicity. This month's GlossyBox is meant to allow you to treat yourself to lush products to revitalize your face, pamper your body, enrich your locks, and add an aroma of summer notes. Sounds good to me!
Ooh, there's quite a bit of stuff in here...
The first thing I pulled out was this perfume sample by A Perfume Organic. The scent is Urban Organic - it is fresh and citrusy, with notes of grapefruit, lavender, lemon, bourbon, lime peel, basil, ginger, and vetiver. This is a certified organic product. It's not my usual type of scent, but it smells nice! The vial is tiny, but it's a bonus item and not a main one, so I certainly don't mind. The full size retails for $65 for .41 oz.
This is a skincare trio by VBeaute! Included is a brightening serum, an everyday creme, and an eye creme. I love skincare, and I am super excited to try these. These are definitely luxury products - the full sized products retail for $150, $135, and $85. Definitely out of my general price range, but I can't wait to try them out.
This is the thing I'm most excited about in this box! It's a Mineral Botanic Hibiscus & Fig Velvet Cream Wash. It includes dead sea minerals and it smells amaaaazing, sweet and fresh. Plus, the sample size is huge - 3 oz! This retails for $16.50 for 6.8 oz. Cannot wait to try this out.
This is my full sized product this month! It's OFRA Cosmetics Eye Shadow ICE cream shadow. It actually has the primer built in. The texture is great and creamy and it has some major staying power - I swatched some on my hand and even after only a few seconds, had a hard time getting it off! My only complaint about this is the color - I'm not sure how or when I'll wear a black cream shadow. I might try it out as a cream liner and see how that works for me! This retails for $14.95.
This is the Enrich Moisturizing Treatment by Wella Professionals! I've tried and enjoyed Wella skincare, so I'm excited to try their haircare as well. This promises to create free flowing hair and contains silk extract. My hair has been dry lately, so I'm excited to see what this does for me. This retails for $12 for 5.07 oz.
And finally, another great sized sample - First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream. This is gentle and unscented and it feels nice and creamy. I've managed to scratch and bruise my legs all up this week, so I'm excited to see how truly gentle this is. The full size retails for $16.50 for 6.8 oz.
In all, I'm very happy with my June GlossyBox. I love the product sizes and the variety...I got something for the face, something for the hair, something(s) for the body, a makeup item, and a fragrance. That kind of range is what has been missing from some of my other subs lately. I am impressed enough with this box to keep subscribing for a while - and if the boxes stay this good, I will likely say goodbye to some of my other subs.
So, have you tried GlossyBox yet? What do you think of it?
