October GlossyBox by Byrdie

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 month Glossybox collaborated with Byrdie an all things beauty website. 

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.

This is the actual container of the mascara. I thought it was very unique. 

Contents of box w/approximate retail value. 

FULL SIZE Balance Me Lip Salve in super soft beige. Value = $16.50

.17 oz. Bvlgari Eau Parfumée Au Thé Vert Eau De Cologne. Value $5.75

FULL SIZE Tarte Lights Camera Flashes mascara. Value = $23.00

.5 oz. Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream. Value = $12.00

Sesha Rejuvenation Anti-Wrinkle Mask. Value = $9.00

The total value of my Glossybox is $66.25. This box consistently offers high end products and a great value. I haven't had a chance to try the Bvlgari perfume yet but it's suppose to smell like green tea and Mediterranean spices. Sounds like something I would enjoy. I absolutely love the tart mascara packaging. The brush is two sided and it came with instructions on how to use the brush and a sample of what it looks like without mascara all over it. You know I love a good face mask and this sensha one looks promising. I'm told the lip salve isn't thick and sticky so maybe I will actually like this one. 

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