August Glossybox - Bohemian Summer

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 these prices. The price is higher than a lot of the other beauty companies but they include luxury items in their boxes. The company ships their boxes towards the end of the month so you will receive it at the end of the month or the beginning of the next month.

This subscription is available in the US (not including Alaska or Hawaii), Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. 

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 usually at least one full  size item. 

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. You have to claim your free box before your subscription ends and becomes inactive. This can be tricky because you don't want to receive duplicate boxes.

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.

The total value of my Glossybox is $67.36.  I hoping I can use the pressed powder like loose powder. I stopped using pressed powder several years ago but I'm thinking I can just use a brush on this or maybe break it up. I've been using the Evian facial mist in the morning and I really like it. I hope this is just as nice. I've heard no so good things about salon keratin treatments but I'm thinking this is very different. I will need to check it out to make sure it's good for colored hair, don't want to mess up my color. This is totally silly but I love the name of the lip goo (I call all lip products lip goo). I'm so gonna ask the boyfriend to hand me my Jelly Pong Pong lip goo. I can only imagine the reaction I will get.

Verdict: This months Glossybox had some cool stuff in it. I even liked the little makeup bag.
