Glossybox February 2014

I am so behind on updating!

Well, and Glossybox was very late this month.

I opened the box and got so excited to see a lash curler!

Emite Makeup Eyelash Curler- $31.33 after Currency Conversion

I had never heard of this company and now I know why. They are a Scandinavian company that mostly sells in Sweden.

I really like this and am so glad it was introduced to me but because it isn’t really available in the US I am wondering if this was thought through? I would buy it but not to ship all the way from Sweden.

Pureology Color Fanatic Spray – $6.00

I don’t understand why I get so many products for color treated hair since I don’t color my hair regularly. Nonetheless, I will probably give this a try since it really just seems like a styling spray with extra nutrients but if it makes my hair feel too dense/oily I will pass it on.

OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel $30.00 

I am so excited to try this product It sounds great and when I researched it it gets great reviews. I don’t know how I’ll ever finish this giant bottle though haha.

Lauren B. Nail Polish in “City of Angels” $18.00

This is a beautiful color and I love that it is essentially an LA color. I haven’t tried it on yet and have seen mixed reviews on applications but I don’t have a bubblegum pink color so this is a nice addition to my ridiculous polish collection.


Overall, Glossybox runs $21.00 a month and I received $85.00 worth of product. I think I will use most of these and I lucked out with the full size products being the most likely one’s that will be used regularly.

I can never tell if I will like my GlossyBox. I have had mixed feelings and usually cancel and resubscribe when there is a curated box or limited edition.


GlossyBox January 2014

I haven’t subscribed to get a Glossybox since this summer but the minute I heard about the BeautyBlender being the feature item, I couldn’t help myself!! This box got to me pretty late though due to all the storms and bad weather…also, I have a feeling people who subscribe on last minute also get the second wave of shipments…


I do love their packaging though. It truly makes getting their products that much more special…


Beauty Blender Pure and solid cleanser $32.95

I LOVE the pink beauty blender for makeup. So honestly, this is the reason I got this box. My first instinct was to use this for my makeup but I do want to try it out with skincare and see if a sponge like this does feel better than just applying with my fingertips. Also, I haven’t tried the solid cleanser so I am excited about that Personally, I have had better luck with solid cleansers and my sponges than the liquid but I am not sure if this is also different in other ways.







Vichy Aqualia Thermal Riche Cream $31

This is a nice texture but I am addicted to the Benefit Total Moisture Cream. The Vichy doesn’t smell as nice so this will probably go into the travel pile or even into the gift pile.



BellaPierre Mineral Blush $33.45

Personally, I use foundation most days, so mineral blushes don’t work very well… on that note I am interested in makeup along that vane but think I just need to go to a BareMinerals counter or something and learn about the proper application methods and uses….or I can just look up a Youtube video I guess…..any suggestions?



Toni&Guy Sea Salt Spray $16.99

So I tend to religiously use Bumble and bumble sea salt spray but I always love a good one to carry when I travel. Also, it isn’t that I don’t like other brands but I haven’t found one that has the same great smell and the same accessibility…I can find the Bb. one everywhere I shop. Aaaaand, the Bb. one is the original but this is like $10 cheaper….so  you never know!!



BCBGMaxazria Bon Genre perfume $75

I am a perfume addict and will gladly get my hands on it. I don’t love when I get sample samples in boxes because those come to me with every Sephora order, but a nice portable spray or roll-on is a nice addition because if I am going to spend $20 I find myself just reaching for the bigger bottle anyways since half the cost is really just for the packaging/bottle…. can you tell I am a value shopper?

Anyways, this stuff smells pretty good too. It is along the fresher/floral vane of perfumes and if that is your thing, this is a pretty okay scent to add to a rotation… I am not sure if I could only have one fragrance for the rest of my life this would be it though.


GlossyBox is a great subscription but at $21/month it is a little steep considering there are other beauty subs I also subscribe to regularly. But on that note, GlossyBox does GREAT collaborations and I wish they did more because I love those and  would definitely subscribe more often….do you hear me out there GlossyBox?
