January 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 in color. It's a perfect box for reusing to store items or for a gift. 

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 the GlossyBox with retail price:

.17 oz. Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Serum. Value = $13.61

Teeez Trendy Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Brush Stiff. Value = $23.50

FULL SIZE Kueshi Revitalizing Face Toner. Value = $13.30

1 oz. Vichy Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser. Value = $2.91

FULL SIZE Lollipops Eye Pencil in Goodbye Moon. Value = $17.70

The total value of this GlossyBox is $71.02. I'm a fan of the Skin & Roma brand and I'm happy to get samples from them because their products are on the pricey side. I use a face toner everyday and I've never heard of this brand. It smells really good though, kinda fruity. The Vichy product is a good travel size and I've never tried it before. The eyeliner is actually really cool. It's in a plastic case and it twists up. I've been getting a lot of eye shadow brushes lately and I really don't need a new one but this one is super colorful and fun!

Verdict: This had a great value and great products.
