Subscription boxes

Junes Glossybox: Its been cancelled.

I use to love this box a lot. I started this subscription while living in Georgia and kept it for about a year. It had really nice items to try at the beginning but lately has been lacking a lot. And when I get another box that is similar and pay the same but get better items along with full size well time to give this one up.

Glossybox is a monthly subscription. You can also pay for 3,6,or 12 months and save some money. In the box you get at least 5 premium products worth about $60.00. Discover the latest trends, get make up tips and if you answer their surveys you will get glossy credit.

Here is what I got in my June Box:

ModelCo Liquid Metal Eye shadow. A velvety eye shadow that dries not so instantly. Came in a metallic champagne. You can use this alone or as a base. Add a primer for a more vibrant color. And no it does not dry instantly. It took about a minute and does not set at all like a powder. Feels just like cream which I do not like at all. I do love the color but that is about all I like. This is a full size product retailing for $19.00
Put just a small swatch but when I checked to see if dry it smeared a lot.

Decorte-Liposome, Hydration Boosting serum : Infuses skin with all day dehydration while helping to repair, protects while minimizing appearance of fine lines. After cleansing use 2/3 pumps and apply on face and neck daily. This is a tiny sample which would probably last you a couple of day. It is not a cream almost like clear somewhat thick water. Soaks up nicely into the skin and not at all sticky. If you want the full size if will cost about $22 for 9 ml.

Rodial Vit C Energizing Sheet Mask: This mask brightens, rejuvenates, re-textures and illuminates your face. Packed with vitamin C to even skin tone. Vitamin b3 to give that youthful glow while reducing appearance of fine lines. Amino acids to energize and sooth the skin. Green tea to sooth and calm complexion. Apply mask onto your clean face leaving it on for 10-15 minutes. Message excess serum into the skin and toss the mask. I love face masks and cant wait to try this one. You only get one mask that retails for $18.

Peach Punch Cleansing Tissues: This product is from Korea that gently and effectively cleanses the face. Removing all impurities while brightening and hydrating the skin. These wipes are infused with peach extract. You can really smell the peaches. I will try one but usually I get weird reactions from a lot of face wipes. My boys however love them and will probably use these. This is a deluxe sample that retails for $7.

Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Probiotic Gel-Cream: Greek moisturizer great for reducing redness and plumping the skin. Use day and night after cleansing to keep skin hydrated. This is a deluxe sample worth about $18 and if you want a full size it will cost about $36.

High Five Facial Moisturizer & High Expectations Facial Oil: Hydrates and repairs that is perfect for most sensitive skin. Use the oil at night by warming oil in the palm of your hands before pressing onto your face. This was extra samples. Full size moisturizer is $40 and the oil $54

Yup this is all I got and was really not to pleased. As a matter of fact I have not liked them for awhile.The only thing I will use is the mask. I do love the cute pink boxes. Sometimes the boxes will be themed such as the one I got last month (zebra box). The boxes are very sturdy and you can use them for just about anything. Kids like to keep Lego’s in the themed ones. I will use them to wrap up birthday or Christmas gifts.

I did cancel right after I opened it and will be searching for another one to take its place. If you have any suggestions as to which I should try next please let me know.

If this is something you would like to try go to I do know they have a glossy box US and UK.

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”

― Audrey Hepburn
