Are you ready for a new year of Glossybox? For this month the exterior packaging is back to the basics - the classic pink and white. However, the interior remains just as fabulous! While this month is skincare focused there were still other items involved like a must have makeup tool and eyeliner! Keep reading for more info ;)
Currently available in over 16 countries, GlossyBox has become known for their full sized products, high quality samples and prestigious brands such as NARS, OCC, OPI, Tarte and more.
Let’s check out the goodies inside the January 2015 GLOSSYBOX!
From Skin&Co Roma, Truffle Therapy Serum. I swear I've have this in boxes before and I loved it. It contains the properties of a truffle mushroom and utilizes skin-revitalizing ingredients. This is said to brighten skin, firm and fade lines all while leaving a dewy complexion behind. Clearly I can't speak to the long-term benefits because it's a small sample size, but I will definitely use it up.
From Teeez Trendy Cosmetics, Beautiful Flat Brush Stiff. Besides the fact that the design on this brush is beautiful the brush itself is fabulous. It's similar to the MAC 239 but a bit fluffier. It's fantastic for applying and packing on lid color. I'd love to see more of these in future Glossyboxes!
From Lollipops, Eye Pencil in Goodbye Moon. I am obsessed with how pitch black and soft this liner is. Oh and the leopard print on the pencil itself doesn't hurt either ;) Like most liners it doesn't last too long in my waterline (where I like to put liner) but it doesn't migrate down my face and stays put as a top lid liner.
From Kueshi, Revitalizing Face Toner. This toner contains aloe leaf and flower extracts. My favorite thing? It is designed to control shine in oily-prone areas and soften dry spots. It basically does ALL THE THINGS you'd need. While my face can be sensitive I'm still going to use this every other day and see how it goes. I love the idea of it working how you need it to in multiple ways. Fingers crossed!
From Vichy, Purete Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser. This cleanser removed my makeup well and smells amazing. I don't know that I can use it daily because of the fragrance, because my skin is sensitive to hormonal breakouts, but it was nice to try and if it were something I knew my skin could handle I'd be all over it.
Like with the October 2014 box Glossybox also included a special gift - a $40.00 gift card to sign up for a discounted HelloFresh food box subscription. This service delivers recipes and ingredients to your door every week. I’m certainly not one for being top chef, so I will take all the help I can get. Three meals a week for 4 people is $129.00. For 2 people it’s $69.00 so I imagine I’ll try that out first and make sure I like it and it’s enough food for everyone. My kids are little garbage disposals. They’re not picky and they’ll eat ALL the food in the house before you can blink. From the looks of it, this service looks absolutely perfect if you live alone or just with an SO.
The January shipment was fantastic because the liner and makeup brush are items I will use daily. I'm also really loving how this new toner is making my skin feel. Was this month worth it? Um, absolutely because you got a GIFT CARD and the makeup brush alone retails higher than the entire box was.
With Glossybox you get a bit of everything, makeup, skin care, beauty tools… I love that this subscription box is sure to cover all of the bases, every single month.
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!**
