July 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.

Price: $21 a month with discounts for 6 and 12 month subscriptions. 

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. The regular boxes are pink and the special collaboration boxes vary in design and color. This box is perfect for reusing or 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.

Skip: There is no option to skip a month.

Contents of box w/approximate retail value. 

1.4 oz. Mitchell and Peach Body Cream. Value = $10.46

.5 oz. Glam Glow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. Value = $20.35

FULL SIZE Skin Inc. Custom-Blended Anti-Aging Serum. Value = $45.00

2 oz. Philip B ph Restorative Detangling Toning Mist. Value = $11.37

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm. Value = $6.86

The total value of my Glossybox is $94.04. As always this box has great products and a great value. I still have a bottle of Philip B toning mist that I haven't used but it sounds like it's something I should use or at least try. The big item everyone was talking about in the box this month is the Glam Glow. I admit I had never heard of it but it's all the rage right now. It's a face mud treatment and you know I love face masks. The anti-aging serum is not something I would normally get excited about but it's a high dollar item and it looks so darn pretty in the bottle. The body cream is some fancy stuff. It contains steam-distilled floral essential oils from the Mitchells' fifth generation estate in Kent, England. 

Verdict: Glossybox is pricier than other beauty boxes but it has great brands and value.
