You better WORK! (I said that in my best RuPaul voice) Work That Beauty! Which is the theme for the April 2013 Glossybox!

Currently available in 19 countries, GlossyBox has become known for their high quality samples and prestigious brands such as NARS, Lancome, Laura Mercier, and more.


So, what is in the April 2013 GLOSSYBOX? Let’s check it out!

First, from Alterna Haircare - Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist. This is the perfect mist for "day after hair". Meaning, I do my hair straight one day and the next day maybe I don't feel like washing it. I spritz this in for the texture to revive it and it looks tousled and sexy. Though, I do keep it out of my roots. Those tend to get oily the day after a wash so I put dry shampoo there instead.


Next, from Bvlgari, the Eau Parfumee au the Blanc Tea Bag for Bath. In the February box we got the coordinating soap, drop this in the tub, relax and scrub up. You'll smell insanely yummy!

From the Honest Company - Honest Organic Lip Balm. Made from organic jojoba and oils this balm is wonderfully moisturizing and doesn't feel sloppy on the lips. This is actually the perfect balm to dot on the lips before putting on a dry lipstick. I got the Sweet Orange Vanilla scent and it's AMAZING.

Next, from TIGI Cosmetics, the Glow Blush in Brilliance. I like this blush more before it's blended out. It's not a bad product to own (and, yay, they sent a full size!!!) but there is a lot of golden shimmer when blended out (hard to tell in the pic, but in direct light you can really notice it) so it's not "me" but if you're into that you're going to LOVE what this blush does.

Finally, a GlossyBox Member Exclusive from Le Metier de Beaute - a sample of the Replenishing Daily Solution. This is one of my favorite creams because it makes your face supple and fresh... and most importantly, doesn't make me break out. Included on the sample card is a $75 off coupon code toward the purchase of a full size on lemetierdebeaute.com. Wooooo!


With GlossyBox you get a bit of everything, makeup, skin care, nails, fragrance… I love that this subscription box is sure to cover all of the bases, every single month.

With the exception of the LMdB sample, the brands for April are all new brands to my stash! Clearly, you’re getting your money’s worth, and useable items to boot!!!

GLOSSYBOX is a subscription service. You sign up on the website and then from there you can order your subscription based on one month, six months, or a year. You’ll answer a series of questions and based off of that, you will receive a customized box. This is all pretty standard for a beauty subscription service.

The price is a bit higher than that of other services you may have heard of or belong to. At $21 I would expect double the awesomeness of what I’d receive from, say, Birchbox.

GLOSSYBOX will always offer a MINIMUM of five products. After receiving your box, you can fill out more surveys in order to rate the products you received so they can better tailor your next package. So, basically, after a few months of the service, your packages should be PERFECT.

FYI May is their 1 year anniversary ;) so good things... hint hint....

**TIP – Make sure you review the products received in your GLOSSYBOX to receive 20 GLOSSYDots per review. You can use these toward your own free box!**
