November 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. 

FULL SIZE Emite Makeup Micronized Eye Shadow in Dams. Value = $27.00

FULL SIZE Mastey Color Protection Color Protecting Leave-In Oil Treatment. Value = $25.00

Nicka K Eyeshadow brush. Value = $4.99

Suwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Cream. Value = $18.64

The Aloe Source Jojoba Radiance Cleansing Polish. Value = $4.48

The total value of my Glossybox is $80.11. I love that this box sends some really high end products that I would probably never buy for myself. The suwhasoo cream is $220 for a full size jar! At first I thought what the heck am I going to do with black eyeshadow but it says you can use it wet or dry so I might use it for eyeliner. I know some people can get away with the black eyeshadow thing but I'm not one of those people. My hair is color and bleached and even though it's surprisingly healthy I am always looking for ways to keep it that way. I already have a set of makeup brushes but this one is really soft so I will add it to my collection. 

Verdict: This months Glossybox had some great products I'm excited to try.
