Review: Glossybox Monthly Beauty Box #Glossybox #monthlybeautybox

 Today I have the opportunity to review the February Glossybox. Glossybox is one of the most successful monthly beauty box subscriptions on the internet. I am a huge fan of Glossybox. Their boxes have great products that are all high-end brands and are almost all full size. The review you will see below is my honest review. I am a current fan of the site and have been a subscriber for a while. 

A subscription to Glossybox costs $21.00 per month and for that you get 5 full and deluxe size products. The products are niche, high end and emerging brand products. The Glossybox staff scours the globe for products that will fit with your life and are on-trend. They have over 400 brands in their repertoire! A 6 month plan is $126.00 paid in full and a 12 month plan $220.00 paid in full. There are also limited edition boxes that come out every so often that sell out so fast, these boxes are around $40-$50 per box. They usually have one for each holiday (such as Mother’s Day, holiday season, etc.) Below is a picture sample of one of the past limited edition Glossybox. The products come in chic, reusable boxes. Trust me, I reuse the heck out these great boxes. I store makeup and essentials in them! Inside each box is a sheet describing each product as well as tips and tricks on how to use them. When you first sign up, you fill out a beauty profile. This way Glossybox knows your likes and dislikes. The boxes are tailored to fit your individual needs, the products customized for you. Another great thing about Glossybox is that they have surveys you can take and earn points for a free box. The surveys are short and basically discuss the products you received in the previous month’s box.

Scalisi Skincare Cleanser and Exfoliator
I love the Scalisi Skincare Cleanser and Exfoliator. It starts off with the microbeads and a gel cleanser. As the water hits the skin the beads dissolve, leaving skin feeling soft and vibrant. This cleanser is non stripping to the skin. The natural moisture barrier is not disturbed, which is good. Scalisi Skincare has a real winner with this cleanser! It Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel in Yogi Flowcomes in a 3.4 fl.oz./100 mL tube and can be purchased from
www.scalisiskincare.com for $25.00. 

Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel Sensation in Yogi Flow (Indian Rose and Sweet Almond Oil) is indulgence itself. It turns into a rich foam when it comes into contact with water. This is like showering with a rich, soft and sensual skin softening perfume. I think it also makes a great shave cream. It combines the ancient Ayurvedic ingredients of Sweet Almond Oil and Indian Rose. Yogi Flow comes in a 6.7 fl.oz./200 mL container and retails for $15.00. It can be purchased from http://us.rituals.com

Julep Color Treat in Heartleigh
Julep Color Treat in Heartleigh is a multi color glitter polish that can be used alone or over another polish. It contains strengthening Hexanal. Color distribution is very even with this polish and it has superior coverage. Oxygen technology lets nails breathe. Anti-oxidants come from pure green coffee extract and are great for the health of your nails. It retails for $14.00 and you can find Julep polishes at www.julep.com

Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner
Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner is meant to replace shampoo. It is a non-stripping cleansing conditioner that de-grimes hair. Unwash locks in natural oils and color. This product does not contain any sulfates, detergents or parabens. It is moisturizing and non-stripping. And it is completely vegan. I love how well this cleanses my hair, leaving it feeling clean but soft and tangle free. It comes in a 13.5 fl.oz./400 mL bottle and retails for $36.00. The product is available at fine salons all over the country. Check here for one near you: http://www.unwash.com/find

Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in PinkRoyal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in Pink _1
Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in Pink moisturizes lips with a hint of color. It has a botanical extracts (jojoba seed oil, shea butter, grape seed oil, sweet almond oil and Argan oil to name a few). It retails for $14.00, comes in a .12 oz./3.4 g container and can be purchased from www.royalapothic.com.
Every month Glossybox has a great array of products that you will fall in love with. If the February box, is any indication, then this is definitely something to check out. I think that the subscription is definitely worth the cost because most of the products in the box are full size. In this box only one out of five products was a deluxe size! What is also so good is that even the sample sized product was not a small size but a great deluxe size, which is so much better than some of the other beauty boxes on the market. The combined worth of the products is $80.00. The actual full sized products are worth $68.00 and the deluxe product is worth $12.00, add to that and the total is worth $80.00. If you pay for a $21.00 subscription the value is tremendous. Definitely worth the money! Glossybox has great customer service too. If you are not satisfied, call them and they will take care of your problem. 

Glossybox subscriptions are available from www.glossybox.com. Glossybox is also available internationally, such as the in the United Kingdom.
