December 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. 

5 oz. Anatomicals Body Cleanser. Value = $2.75

1 oz. Michael Todd Pumpkin Facial Mask. Value = $10.00

Nails Inc. Victoria Polish. Value = $9.50

1.01 oz. Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizing. Value = $26.19

Wink. Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancer. Value = $39.00

The total value of my Glossybox is $87.44. This box is full of stuff I will use. Body cleanser is something I use everyday. I've used the Michael Todd brand pumpkin mask before and I really liked it. I use moisturizer everyday, although I usually use something with SPF so I might use this at night. The Wink product is new to me but it says it will give your eyebrows and eyelashes a more lush appearance when applied. I'm thinking it's something I will put on before I go to bed. The nail polish color is really pretty. My nails are pretty destroyed right now so I have some Julep oxygen treatment on it trying to get them to grow a little.

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