For February, Glossybox is going international! This month's box arrives on the tales of the amazing January Glossybox, which was curated by Leandra Medine of the Man Repeller. A tough act to follow!

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 February 2013 GLOSSYBOX? Let’s check it out!

The first item is from Bvlgari and is the Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Soap. This smells lovely, and if you're a fan of the perfume, you're sure to be a fan of the soap. It's neither feminine nor masculine, so it can be enjoyed by all!

The next item is from Da Vinci Cosmetics and it's the shimmer powder in Lava. It's a versatile mineral powder that says it can be used under the eye brow or as a cheek highlighter, but I think with the shade I got it's best used as an eyeshadow. It actually reminds me of MAC Green Brown pigment but with less power. The shadow is very smooth and has a nice pigment (swatched below).

Third, from Evologie, the eSystem Duo Pack Intensive Blemish Serum & Stay Clear Cream. It's a mini-duo of skin care said to rapidly clear blemishes and reduce redness. It feels good, and I'll definitely use through the samples, though it would be hard to determine if it actually works because the sizes are small.

Fourth, from Lisi, the Color Glaze Lip Gloss in 4 Square. This shimmery burgundy shade applies to the sheer side and gives just a hint of color. Perfect for those who want to try the color but are timid about going too deep. This gloss doesn't have a ton of shine and is rather sticky, but it would be lovely for layering.

Finally, from Nail Rock, Design Nail Wraps in Union Jack Gold and Black. Nail wraps are a dream for when you don't feel like maintaining a mani. I love them for vacations. However, this style wouldn't be one I'd wear to anything. I'm sad I didn't get the one they showed on the included pamphlet with the red and gold reverse french mani. Hot.

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.

The brands for February are all new brands to my stash! Clearly, you’re getting your money’s worth, and useable items to boot!!! And, of course, a GlossyboxMag to read while you relax in the tub with your Bvlgari Soap.

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.

**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!**

Here is the latest news from GLOSSYBOX:
