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.

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. 

How cute is the box design this month.

Contents of the GlossyBox with retail price:

FULL SIZE Julep nail polish in Heartleigh. Value = $14.00

2.5 oz. Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner. Value = $6.67

FULL SIZE Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in Pink. Value = $14.00

FULL SIZE Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara. Value = $22.00

FULL SIZE Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel Sensation in Yogi Flow. Value = $15.00

The total value of this GlossyBox is $71.67. This box definitely had a Valentine theme with the pink and red colors. I was excited about the Julep polish because I skipped my box last month and this was a free gift I think. I layered it over Julep Zoya and it looks great. I'm very curious about the Unwash product. I know the new trend it no-poo but I haven't jumped on that trend yet. This product is said to replace your shampoo and conditioner and doesn't strip your hair of natural oils, etc. I personally like the lather of shampoo so we will see how this works. I absolutely love to the color and container of the lip gloss but I HATE that I have to use my fingers to use it. I know I could carry a lip brush with me but honestly that's not gonna happen. I guess I could just use it at home when I leave the house but that's kind of a bummer. I'm always a fan of getting body washes and this one looks fun because it comes out gel and turns into foam. Lastly, more mascara, and yet another brand I want to try. Sigh...

Verdict: This box was a hit for me!
