Glossybox (USA) March Box Review!

So about a week ago I got in my March Glossybox and since I've been wanting to blog more, I decided that doing a review on it would be a great start!

So for those unfamiliar with what Glossybox is, it's a subscription box that sends 5-7 deluxe sized samples and full sized products (usually at least one) for $21 a month.

Anyway now onto the box!

 This is what the outside of the box looks like. They are nice and sturdy and good for reusing to store things.

 Every month we get a Glossymag. I like to read them and usually they include a coupon for at least one of the products we sampled.

 This is what the box looked like when I first opened it.

This is the product card. It comes truely like a card and you have to open to to find information on the products.

The first thing that caught my eye is the Sebastian Shaper Fierce Finishing Hairspray. The sample size is 1.5 oz and retails for about $2.40. Hairspray really isn't something I use that often, but since I like Sebastian products I'm not going to trade it away and I'll keep hold of it in case I ever need some.

 The next thing is the Koh Gen Do Cosmetics Oriental Plants Emollient Cream. The sample size is .28 ounces and retails for about $35 (the full size is $123!!!). I think people either got this or a full size Pixi product (the brand from Target) and at first I was sad that I didn't get the Pixi product, but considering that I have severe dry skin and I would never have been able to try this otherwise I am kinda glad that I got this. I also love that it came in a little jar versus a squeezey tube because me and squeezey tubes just don't go well together. I haven't used this yet, since I currently have about 5 other jars opened, but I'm excited to.

Now onto the full size products!!!
The first full size product is a tube of black eyelinet by Elite Models. It is the Intensity Eye Pencil in Secret Grey. I guess the secret is the fact that this is actually black? It retails for $14. I know some people think that black eyeliner is boring, but I always like trying new ones because I use it everyday and I can never have enough.
 This is a close up of the tip, which just added to my high hopes since it looks alot like my Avon one. Sadly I was let down. The application was great, but it is not waterproof at all, meaning that if my eyes watered even a tiny bit it ran down my face and smeered. Plus it only lasted about 4 hours. I can get my Avon one to last 8 hours, and I can cry/rub my eyes/do whatever and it still stays until I scrub with makeup remover. For the price it is not really worth it. I will probably use up the tube if I run out of my other one, since as long as I don't get my eyes wet or rub them its not bad for a short class day, but I wouldn't rebuy.

One of my favorite products in the box is the Prestiche Essential Oil Bar Soap in Rosechella. This is a full size and it retails for $16.99. They also included a gift certificate for $40 which I used as soon as I got my box. The soap is nice, smells good (more floral then rose), and it doesn't dry my skin out like some bar soaps. If only I could justify the price for such a small bar of soap!

 My other favorite product paid for the box in itself and that is the Model Co Cheek and Lip Tint in Rosey Red. This is valued at $24!! I've wanted to try a Model Co product and was so excited to receive this. I'm glad Glossybox was true to the email they sent out about this being a spoiler and sent it to everyone. This is a really pretty lightly pigmented stain. I've only used this on my lips and the color was pretty faint so I think it should probably be applied more heavily handed then one would think. I'm going to try it on my cheeks tomorrow and we will see how that works.
Overall I totally think that this box was worth $21! I love what I got and I'm totally going to stay subbed to Glossybox for a long time. They always give a nice mix of products and this month was no different. I would totally recommend them!
