September GlossyBox

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. 

Contents of box w/approximate retail value. 

.33 oz. BCBGMAXAZRIA Bon Genre Eau De Parfum. Value = $7.32

FULL SIZE Be a Bombshell Eyeliner Pen in Onyx. Value = $14.00

Emite Makeup Eyelash curler. Value = $30.50

FULL SIZE Nioxin Diamax Treatment. Value = $50.00

FULL SIZE Oceane Makeup Remover Pen. Value = $5.30

The total value of my Glossybox is $107.12. I'll be honest I was most excited by the eyelash curler. Don't get me wrong the other stuff is great but I've been wanting to try an eyelash curler for months! I've never tried a good one, only cheap ones that never seemed to work. The parfum smells nice. I usually use body splashes but I will mix it up a bit and spritz a little of this on. I thought the makeup remover tool was interesting. At first I thought I wouldn't use it but it says it's great for removing makeup while perfecting a cat eye. I try and try to get the perfect cat eye and always smudge it so yes this will come in handy. 

Verdict: This months Glossybox had some cool stuff in it but I'm loving the eyelash curler!

  1. This is one of my favorite Glossyboxes to date! It is one where everything will actually be ENTHUSIASTICALLY used. The curler is the best I've tried for my eyes...I don't know what it is about the shape of my eyes, but most curlers pinch me, and this one doesn't. I'm excited to try the Diamax, and I am in love with the perfume. I already had one of the eyeliners, but it was old and getting dry so I just tossed it recently, so nice to have a replacement. The remover pen is a fun idea. Love everything. :)
