January Glossy Box Man Repeller Box

Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription service that sends 5 travel size beauty items a month.  You can sign up monthly for $21/month, 6 months for $115 (breaks down to $19.16/month), or yearly for $220 (breaks down to $18.33/month).  Shipping is included in all of these prices. The price is a higher than a lot of the other beauty companies but they say they include luxury items and in my experience they do.  The company ships their boxes towards the end of the month so you will receive it at the end of the month.  There is a little customization from a survey you take when you sign up.     

The good:

The brands: They have well known quality brands like OPI, Zoya, Burberry, C.O. Bigelow, Ahava, Sebastian and other brands specific to other countries. 

The sizes: They send deluxe size samples and a couple of items were full sized.

The box: I know it's just a box but it's a really nice sturdy box in a nice shade of pink.  The only logo is on the top and it's not very big.  That makes this box perfect for reusing for a gift box. 

Information. They provide information on the products you receive and how much the full size is priced at.  I like knowing this info up front and not having to search for it. 

Free stuff: If you provide feedback on your products you earn Glossydots which will eventually earn you a free box. 

The not so good:

The price: This can be a little high for some people but if you want to receive known/quality brands it's worth it. 

They changed the look of the box for this month for the man repeller. 

Cute little note card from Leandra of the man repeller. 

My Glossybox man repeller treasures.

Contents of box w/approximate retail value listed and full size price in parenthesis:

.10 oz. Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara. Value = $9.26 (.27 oz. $25.00)

.17 oz. Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum. Value = $6.03 (1 oz. $35.00)

.10 oz. Le Metier De Beaute Replenishing Daily Solution SPF30. Value = $19.57 (1.17 oz. $225.00)

1 oz. Living Proof Prime Style Extender. Value = $4.00 (5 oz. $20.00)

.03 oz. Narciso Rodriguez Eau de Toilette Spray. Value = $1.54 (1.6 oz. $77.00)

FULL SIZE OPI Can't Let Go Liquid Sand Nail Lacquer. Value = $9.00 - This is a really cool color but you MUST use a top coat for best results.  Since it's a sand finish if you don't use a top coat it feels really gritty and looks really dull.  With the topcoat it's sparkly and pretty. 

FULL SIZE Vincent Longo Lipstain SPF15 Lipstick in Belle Etoile. Value = $23.00 - This looks like it's super dark but it goes on sheer and just provides a nice little tint of color while protecting your lips with SPF

The total value of my Glossybox is $72.40.  This box is amazing.  Not only is the value incredible I want to use all the products in it.  Mascara? Yes please, OPI polish, love it.  I love the Vincent Longo lipstain, it provides just enough color and feels very moisturizing.  I've used Living Proof products before and liked them so I'll definitely want to try the style extender.  I can't believe the full size Le Metier moisturizer is $225!  I'm glad I get to try it because I would probably never buy it. 

Verdict: This months Glossybox is fantastic.
