March 2017 Glossybox review time!

Let’s see what’s in my March 2017 Glossybox!
The signature pale pink box.
A peek inside!
The info sheet was more of a poster that unfolded to reveal the contents of March’s box — along with descriptions, retail prices, and tips for each item. It also included variant items that some subscribers received instead of the ones that were in my particular box. (Each month usually includes slight variations in products between boxes.)
This primer/pore refiner can be used alone or as a base for makeup. Its formula is designed to minimize pores, combat breakouts, and reduce shine. To use, simply apply to your T-zone and blend to the outer edges of your face.
I’ve been getting a ton of nude/neutral palettes in subscription boxes lately, and while I like the shades above just fine, the one on the very far right is what I’m most interested in trying out. I need some dang boldness for a change! 😉
This non-chemical, vegan-friendly sunscreen helps to protect, moisturize, and re-invigorate your skin for a brighter, more youthful appearance. Key ingredients include red algae, maracuja, soybean oil, and apple extract. To use, apply to clean skin alone or under makeup as needed before sun exposure. It can also be layered with your regular moisturizer for extra hydration.
I was kind of surprised to see a Mary Kay product in Glossybox. This “deluxe mini set” contains 5 products designed to reduce the look of deep lines & wrinkles, even skin tone, restore moisture, and more. Included were: Lifting Serum, Foaming Cleanser, Eye Renewal Cream, Day Cream Sunscreen, and Night Treatment with Retinol. I’d try these out, but my face is super finicky about what I use on it, so I’d rather not introduce it to 5 new products at once. 😉
Millesis Active Eye Light is formulated to reduce the signs of aging and help minimize the appearance of dark circles. It both strengthens the skin and works as a color corrector to achieve a more youthful, healthy appearance. The formula is cruelty free and contains no animal ingredients. 🙂
Bonus Product! — These nail appliqués were included as a bonus item and their colorful abstract/floral design is perfect for Spring. They’re made with real nail polish and include a base, color, and top coat in every strip.
A nice, high value month from Glossybox! My favorite items were the eyeshadow palette, nail appliqués (though I’m not sure I can pull them off), and color corrector. As always, the total retail value was great at just over $130! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 40% off the March box with coupon code “MARCH40” — OR save 25% on any 3 or 6 month subscription with coupon code “WOMANCRUSH“!
