September 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. 

September GlossyBox

Contents of the GlossyBox with retail price:

FULL SIZE 12 Benefits Foaming Hair Shampoo. Value = $9.00

FULL SIZE Stiks Cosmetiks Lipstik in Red. Value = $15.00

.05 Biossanse The Revitalizer. Value = $2.50

FULL SIZE Emité Make Up Artist Colour Powder Blush Value = $22.00

.33 oz. Nails Inc. Uptown Nail Polish. Value = $9.50

The total value of this GlossyBox is $58.00. I love the shape design of the lipstick and the container but it's sooo red! I don't know if I can pull it off but it's worth a try. The nail polish color isn't too exciting but it's a nice neutral color. I've used the 12 benefits leave in conditioner and I liked it so I'm happy to try the foaming shampoo. The Biossanse is a squalane moisturizer. I'll use this at night before bedtime. I'm not to into the blush but I'm sure I'll be able to trade it. 

Verdict: This box was ok, not fantastic but ok.
