Glossybox February 2015

My first Glossybox has arrived.  Glossybox gives you 5 deluxe samples of beauty products a month for $21.00 plus $5.00 shipping to Canada but do get cheaper with longer terms.  The buzz on the interweb feels that Glossybox has one of the best packaging of any of the boxes.  Every month they curate a selection of high-end, niche, and trendy beauty products in deluxe travel sizes that they send out and I thought I’d give them a try.  They only recently started shipping to Canada.

The box.  They did have a very cute Valentine’s themed one but it was a limited quantity and I guess I ordered too late.  However this box is very sturdy.

Inside looks great.  You can tell plenty of care has been taken with this box.

The info card is a triple fold out listing the items, tips and pricing.

Julep Color Treat Nail Polish in Heartleigh-$14.00 Full Size

I think this is great nail polish!  It has all sorts and sizes of glitter, including heart shaped ones and is 5 free as well.  Julep does have their own subscription box so it seems a bit odd that they are included in this one but since I wouldn’t get a strictly polish box I’m thrilled.  This is also a limited edition colour  just for the season.

Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner-2.5oz $6.67

This is called a conditioner but it is really an all in one.  You use this in place of shampoo and conditioner.  Normally I would be wary of such a thing since my hair is so long but I received a similar type of product in a different box and it was great, so I have high hopes for this one too.

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Wind-$20.00 Full Size

This is a really nice lip gloss.  The colour is nice on me and it is not sticky at all.  My lips feel good wearing this and I fully believe the moisturizing claims being made.

Teadora Nourishing Beauty Bar in Rainforest At Dawn-$5.00 Full Size

This is a tiny full size bar of soap.  It is pretty strongly scented but full of things that are good for the skin.  I refuse to share my special soaps with anyone else in my household so even being tiny it will last me a little while.

Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel Sensation in Yogi Flow-$15.00 Full Size

This comes out of the bottle as a gel and once it hits water magically turns into  foam.  It is scented with sweet almond oil and Indian rose and smells pretty spectacular.  The info on it says that your special someone will not be able to resist you once you use it so I guess using it before work might not be the best idea……

I am really happy with my first box.  If all the future boxes are this good I think this may become my favorite box.  There were four full sized items included and a total value of $60.67.  That is 3 times what I paid, even with shipping.  The only thing I could complain about (and I’m really stretching to call it a complaint) is that the box is very much themed for Valentine’s Day and I received it in February but way past the 14th.
