February 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 following 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. I've also used them to store my extra beauty products.  

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 can also earn glossydots from referrals. 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. 

Anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Wake Up Under Eye Patches . Value = $11.00

Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish in City of Angels. Value = $18.00

1 oz. Pureology Serious Colour Care Colour Fanatic. Value = $3.58

Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Serum. Value = $12.71

Sumita Beauty Eye liner in black. Value = $15.00

The total value of my Glossybox is $60.29. I noticed on other reviews there were some variations in the boxes. I was happy to see the Skin & Co product in my box. I actually just ordered some lotion from them and they sent me bigger sample of this serum. I love this truffle items I've tried and they always smell so good. I'm a big fan of pureology but don't use it as much as I would like because it's a bit pricey. I color my hair and this stuff does a great job of preserving the color. I think I will try and eDivv for some more of this. Speaking of eDivv I've seen a lot of the under eye patches on the site but I'm actually excited about them. When I travel, especially if I'm flying I always wake up the next day with big fat puffy eyes. This little box is going right into my travel bag. I have tons of black eyeliner right now so this wasn't too exciting. I love the nail polish bottle but I think the color is a little too pink for me. 

Verdict: This months Glossybox definitely had value to me. It's on my list of fav boxes for sure.
