June 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:

8.5 oz. Nexxus Color Assure Conditioner. Value = $7.54

FULL SIZE City Lips Lip Plumping Treatment. Value = $35.00

Mini Orly Nail Polish. Value = $3.99

FULL SIZE Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Value = $23.00

1.35 oz. être belle aloe gel. Value = $25.00

The total value of this GlossyBox is $94.53. In April GB sent Nexxus shampoo which I haven't used yet. I am happy to get the coordinating conditioner. I'm very curious about the lip plumping stuff. I saw pictures and if it really works like that I will be impressed. The mascara is cool but I have more mascara than I know what to do with. They are all different though so I want to try them all. The orly nail polish is a really nice red, although I'm sure I have this color in another brand. I can't believe how expensive the aloe gel is. I've only used aloe for sunburns but since I'm stay out of the sun as much as possible I'm not sure when I would use this. 

Verdict: This box was great. I'm very curious about the lip plumping.
