Glossybox April 2015

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.

This is the top of the box this month.  Very graphic print.  Inside is the hand tied parcel and the info card neatly tucked in.

Under that wrapping was a surprise!  Under that was my products all nestled in their bed of squiggles.

The info card folds out and has lots of info about your items.

Marrakesh Endz: Split End Mender & Preventer-30mL $5.99

This is actually the full size of this product.  This hair repairer has argan and hemp oils in it.  It is supposed to  help control frizz and static while sealing split ends.  I have no set routine for getting my haircut so I can  go awhile before I remember.  As a result my ends do get a bit frayed.  You can apply this to wet or dry hair and I find the smell to be really strong.

Aerin Waterlily Sun EDP Spray-9mL $19.41

This is a cute bottle of perfume and much larger than the usual perfume samples that get included in boxes.  This scent is meant to induce thoughts of spring and it is super floral.  When I first gave it a spray I thought I didn’t like it but after a few minutes on my skin I’ve changed my mind.  It is a wonderfully soft scent that is very feminine.  I do usually wear floral scents even though Hubby prefers musks on me, and this one will join my rotation for sure.

Obsessive COmpulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss in Rhythm Box-$18.00 Full Size

This is sooooo fuschia.  It’s a colour I would probably never ever pick up in the store.  If I use the tiniest little dot and spread it around it’s okay for me but I don’t know that this one will get much use.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum-7mL $14.88

I have received a few Estee Lauder products in different boxes and I really like them.  I would never buy them because they are way above my price range but they are a great line of skin care.  This little bottle will help to reduce the look of uneven skin tone and dark spots.  It will also give you a boost of moisture. Also they gave a discount code to get 15% off on the website.

Julep Gel Eye Glider in Navy Smoke-$16.00 Full SIze

Glossybox has included Julep products in their boxes before but this is my first eye liner from them.  The name is not a lie…this really does glide on.  It seems to be fairly smudge proof and is a nice change from the usual black liners I’ve been receiving.  I have no desire to sign up for the Julep box and I don’t think you can purchase their products without subscribing.

This little bag was a mystery gift.  Inside of it was a gift card to Thursday Friday.  They are a accessories website. My gift card gave me half off what I selected in my cart but I could have got the same deal just for signing up for their newsletter.  Shipping to Canada is $20 on top of whatever you choose.

This months box was great!  The only thing I’m kinda sad about is the lip gloss but that’s just because I don’t wear that bright of a colour often.  The value of this box was $74.28 without counting the gift card.  As a test I picked an $85 dollar bag off the website and it took half off so it doesn’t seem to have a limit on it.  Glossybox has been consistently good for the three months I’ve received it so far.  Hope it keeps up.
