My Glossybox arrived early for the second month in a row, so hopefully this is a trend that keeps right on going. As usual, I had seen spoilers before receiving the box but due to variations I wasn’t 100% sure what I’d find inside.
If you’re not aware, Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription box that sends 5-6 deluxe sized samples packed inside a super sturdy, reusable box. The packaging is top notch and only the highest quality brands are included. Like many of the other beauty subscriptions, you’ll fill out a personal beauty profile when you sign up so that they can send products that best suit your lifestyle, skin type, etc.
Subscriptions are $21/month and shipping is free. They also have a great rewards system where you can earn points for revewing the products you receive in your box. Once you’ve accumulated 1,000 points, you’ll earn a free month.
Let the May Glossybox unboxing begin!
There was no fun box design like last month, but it was still nicely packaged in their traditional Glossybox pink and black motif.
The tri-fold Glossybox info pamphlet include photos of every product, descriptions, prices, and even tips on using them. I’d say it’s one of the most helpful info cards/pamphlets out there.
Doucce Mineral Matt Lipstick ($20) – If you’re a regular reader, you know I’m not a fan of lipstick. With very few exceptions, the only thing I wear on my lips is an untinted balm. However, I think I might just be able to pull off this shade (907 Cherry Blossom). It’s goes on pretty light and gives me just a hint of color. It’s also infused with SPF 10 and vitamin E to keep your lips hydrated. Oh, and the case is pretty neat too!
Glamglow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment (~$19) – I can’t believe such a small tube (.5 oz) is worth so much, but the full size (1.7 oz) sells for $69. Crazy. I’m actually looking forward to trying this… It promises a “multi-sensory cleansing experience” and “super clean super velvety skin”. You just apply a thin layer to your face, let it dry for 5-10 minutes, and wash away with water which turns it into a cleansing oil treatment.
Teeez Trendy Cosmetics Head Over Heels Nail Lacquer Top Coat ($14) – I was really hoping I’d get the Julep polish shown in the spoilers, but alas, I did not. Instead, I received this Teeez top coat. The packaging is really cute and it’s a useful enough product, but I reeeeally wanted an actual nail color. Ah well.
Clearista Retexturizing Gel (~$10) – This gel promises to smooth skin, refine pores, and reduce skin imperfections like rough skin & dry patches. It’s cruelty-free and contains no parabens or synthetic fragrances. I’m always a little nervous to try exfoliating treatments due to my sensitive skin, but I’ll give it a whirl.
Sebastian Professional Stylbrid 9 (~$5) – A lightweight, multi-benefit spray that can be used on dry or damp hair. It offers heat protection, enhances shine, adds volume & texture, and more. Unfortunately, I rarely use hairspray, so this is a miss for me.
While I was really hoping for a Julep polish, I wasn’t too disappointed with May’s Glossybox. It had a nice amount of full-sized products, which is always a plus. Also, the total value of everything in the box is roughly $68. Not bad for a $21 box!Browse more Beauty & Makeup Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
May 2015 Glossybox Review
Not my favorite Glossybox, but not a total loss either. I surprisingly don’t mind the lipstick (which alone nearly covers the cost of the box)… The top coat will get used… I’ll try the Glamglow and exfoliator… The only item I’ll definitely be passing along is the hair spray. So actually, it’s really not a bad box at all. 🙂
