My May Glossybox came in late last week and as always I was super pumped to open it and find out what was in it (maybe even doubly pumped since it was their one year anniversary box).
I love Glossybox's packaging. It feels like opening a gift every month.
The box looks relatively full, so let's check out the products!
When you open it there is an information card and a
magazine (which for some reason I haven't been getting a magazine
lately? Even though everyone else I can think of is getting them.
Wierd). This month we also got a coupon from Ulta for a Sebastian
product and some people also got a free waxing certificate to the
European Wax Center (which I didn't, but it doesn't matter since the
nearest one is like 300 miles away.)
Then, the only product who's brand name I had actually
herd of before, the Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray. The sample
size is 1.7 oz and is about $4. It's a gel that gives volume and
softness I actually have a strong love for Sebastian products so I was
thrilled to get this! I haven't used this yet, but since it's summer
I'll have time to start taking showers in the morning again (I've been
taking them at night and who wants volume when they go to sleep?) and
I'm super excited to try it!
Then there is the Etre Belle Collagen and Aloe Vera Hydro Mask. $3.95.
Did I just say aloe vera? Heck yes! I'll probably wait and use this on
either a super hot day or if I get sunburned, since aloe is my go to
cool down product. Either way really excited to try this and I thought
it was a great inclusion in an almost summer box!
Then there is a Nicka K New York Absolute! Perfume Stick
in LUX 369. This is a full size and retails for $14.99. This smells so
good! Like a coconut floraly scent, but it isn't overpowering. The
staying power was pretty good too. This is great for traveling and at
the price I'm totally going to be checking out the other perfumes in
The last product is the My Prime Multi Purpose Mattifying
Moisturizer. The sample size is 10 ml and is about $6.80. I saw the
word mattifying and instantly got nervous since I have very dry skin and
mattifyers tend to make my skin look really well drier, but not this
one! It moisturizes well and it also acts as a great foundation primer!
Totally going to be using every last drop!
Overall my box had a retail value of about $38! That's great considering that I only paid $21 for the box. I was a bit bummed initially because I guess I was expecting more from their anniversary box, but I will admit at a second glance I am pretty pleased! Plus the June box looks amazing! The couple items I tried were awesome, and I was introduced to a bunch of new brands and new products that I wouldn't have tried by myself, and isn't that really the point of these boxes?
