Glossybox May 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.

The box is back to normal this month.  Still all carefully wrapped and tied with a bow once you first open it and then under that was my goodies.

The info card is really nice with this box.  It gives great pictures of the products, the price for full size, and tips on how to use each item.

Teeez Trend Cosmetics Head Over Heals Nail Lacquer in Cotton Candy-$14.00 Full Size

According to the card there were a few different shades sent out.  I like this pink colour and think it’s a great spring colour.  The brush is really odd to me.  I’ve never owned polish by this company before and they have a flat brush instead of the usual round that most use.  It makes it easier to apply as you only need two swipes and your whole nail is covered.

Doucce Mineral Matte Lipstick in 907-$20.00 Full Size

The tube of this lipstick is very cool.  It is completely mirrored and half round/half square.  The lipstick itself was really dry and a little hard to apply.  It pulled at my lips and maybe would have been easier to use if I used a brush to apply.  The colour itself is good though.  A darker pink with a hint of mauve.  It does promise to last and has an SPF10 too.

Clearista Retexturizing Gel-15mL $10.00

This smells awesome!!!!! It has a light rose scent that I really like.  It is made to be used after cleansing to smooth skin and help get rid of dry patches.  It has some type of scrubbies in it so it seems kind of like an exfoliant.

Glamglow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment-15g $20.29

I know this was a much wanted sample this month for lots of people.  The Glamglow products are highly recommended and I can’t wait to try this out.  This is a mask that you apply to clean skin and then let dry.  It will help you to get a velvety finish to your skin by providing detoxification and renewal.  It’s good for all skin types as well.

Sebastian Professional Stylbrid 9 Hairspray-44g $4.99

I haven’t received hairspray in a while from my boxes so this is definitely welcome.  This is an all around hairspray not only giving hold but also texture, curl definition, UV protection and shine.  It is also alcohol free so no drying out your hair either.

This months box was okay for me.  I like everything included and there are no meh items.  The value this month is super high thanks to the Glamglow, $69.28.  There were two full size products and the other three were sample sized but still larger multiple use sizes.  This box has been a consistent winner and is worth the slightly higher price tag to me.
