Glossybox June 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 have been shipping to Canada for a little while now.

It’s always so pretty under the lid.  Bows and paper and stickers.  They do a good job of making you feel special.

They have a really nice info card too.  It tells you what you got, obviously, and full size retails.  It also gives you a tip for that product.

Rich Hair Care Pure Luxury Intense Moisture Shampoo-80mL $3.99

I am not all that fond of getting just shampoo in a box.  I always use conditioner and this is two months in a row I’ve got just shampoo.  This one uses coconut oil to reduce static and add shine.  It smells like good shampoo and I’m sure it will be great, just as soon as I find some conditioner.

Orly Nail Lacquer in Lola-5.3mL $2.55

This is such a cute little bottle of polish!  It is about 1/6th of a normal one.  There were a variety of shades sent out but I like this one.  It is a bright pink/coral shade and perfect for summer.  The only downside I have with it is that I’ve already received a few polishes in similar colours recently.  I have very few of this brand though.

Too Faced Cosmetics Better Than Sex Mascara-4.8g $14.48

This mascara promises to give tons of volume and length.  It is collagen-fulled, whatever that means.  It’s smudge-proof and has a shaped brush to give definition and curl.  I can’t wait to try it.

Etre Belle Cosmetics Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturizing Gel-40mL $24.95

I was surprised that this tube was full sized, it’s more like a sample size.  It smells fantastic and it not sticky like most gels are.  It is a super light moisturizer and will be great for when it gets really warm out.

Doucce Blush Brush-$32.00

This is a kabuki style brush.  It’s really short for a blush brush.  I am not too sure how I feel about it.  It’s way more expensive then I would ever pay for a brush.  I’ve bought whole sets for less.  It does not say what the bristles are made out of but I’m guessing they are synthetic.

This months box was okay for me.  I’m iffy on the brush and so so on the polish but that’s just personal taste not a reflection on the items sent .  The value this month is super high, $77.97.  There were three full size products, if you count the brush as one and the other ones were larger multiple use sizes.  This box has been a consistent winner and is worth the slightly higher price tag to me.
