September Glossybox time! I skipped last month’s review since I just had way too many boxes to review, but I wanted to squeeze it in this time. Here goes!
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.
Alright, let’s check out my September 2015 Glossybox!
As always, the presentation was pretty and totally gift-worthy.
The tri-fold info pamphlet include photos of every product, descriptions, prices, and even tips on using them.
Nails Inc Uptown Nail Polish ($14) – I love getting polish in subscription boxes and I love that this is full sized, but… I don’t love the color. It’s described as a “dusty rose” and is actually a lot lighter than my photo makes it look… More of a light pink mauve shade. The image on the info card above is closer to the true color, though that’s a little lighter. I guess it’s somewhere in between the two. 😉
Biossance The Revitalizer (~$5) – This is an all natural facial moisturizer made with plant-based squalane to replenish and hydrate the skin. You can also use it on your cuticles and even in your hair to tame fly-aways. The formula is paraben-free, hypoallergenic, and won’t clog pores.
12 Benefits Love at First Lather Foam Shampoo (~$5) – It looks like the majority of subscribers received a coffee scrub instead of this shampoo, but since I have a gazillion scrubs I’m happy to try this. It’s a foaming shampoo made with natural ingredients that not only cleanse your hair, but also acts as a natural sunscreen. I was a little surprised to see that you need to use 10-12 pumps(!!), but we’ll see if I can make do with less.
Emite Make Up Artist Colour Powder Blush ($22) – While I do occasionally use blush, I’m not sure that I need such a HUGE supply of it. I’ve seriously never seen one this large. That said, it’s nice that they included such a pricey full sized item.
Julep Luxe Up Your Lips ($24) – Glossybox tends to send Julep products quite a lot, which has always seemed odd to me. (Are they somehow connected?) Anywho, this is a (full-sized!) tinted gloss that soothes, hydrates, and plumps your lips. I don’t normally wear gloss, but a tip on the info card recommended applying this before bed so you wake up with a “full, lovely pout”. Worth a shot!
I’m not crazy about September’s Glossybox, but I don’t hate it either. My favorite items are the facial moisturizer, the shampoo, and surprisingly, the lip gloss. The blush is nice but it would last me years… I’m also not sure if the shade is right for me. As always, the overall value was great — roughly $70 in products!Browse more Beauty & Makeup Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
