Unboxing Glossybox February 2016

Love is in the air is February’s Glossybox theme and it is a lovely white and pink box with heart-shaped balloons. I was, once again, ecstatic about the packaging. Glossybox never fails with their packaging but this month was extra pretty & extra exciting!

 

Glossybox is beauty subscription service that costs $21/month and is filled with 5 niche, high-end, and emerging brands. If you are interested in subscribing you can check it out here. If you are interested in the many brands Glossybox offers you check them out here. They give you the opportunity to fill out a beauty profile to assist Glossybox in curating a box tailored to you. They also have a point system where you can earn points by filling out surveys and referring friends. When you reach 1000 Glossydots you earn a free box of your choosing.

The number one reason I love Glossybox is that they have introduced me to new brands every month so far and that’s exactly what I was hoping for. Even if it turns out to be something I hate, I love to try new brands, especially from emerging companies.

February 2016 Glossybox Theme: Love is in the Air

Again, I can’t say enough about how freakin cute Glossy’s packaging is!! I fall in love again every month with the sturdy and perfectly packaged box. The detail is amazing down to the cute little ribbon and the insert with product info & tips. Personal touch means everything to me. My husband is a professionally organized hoarder and even he loves these boxes for storage.

I removed the fun white confetti so that you could get a better look at the products inside. Let me just stop about the packaging because I’m sure you got the point by now.

This month’s box contained 3 brands I already LOVE and 2 I haven’t tried yet so that was enough to make me drool immediately! Lets get into detail before I get going again. lol

BioRepublic Skincare- Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask Full-Size $5.00

Tidbit: Inspired by Korean skincare products, this sheet mask includes all of the healing benefits without the paragons or sulfates. UUHM…..YES PLEASE!!

Etre Belle Cosmetics- Golden Skin Roll-On Caviar Eye Gel in deluxe size|Full-size $45

Tidbit: Always allow eye cream to absorb for at least 1 minute before applying makeup.That way, your foundation concealer doesn’t crease from the excess product.

Benefit Cosmetics- The Porefessional Face Primer in sample size|Full-size $31.00

Tidbit: Primer can be used at anytime of the day. If your pores come out of hiding, or you notice problem areas that need extra attention, pat a dab of this oil-free, translucent formula on your face and voila!

Teeez Cosmetics- Oasis Gem Lipstick in Heat Wave ruby Full-Size $22.00

Tidbit: Women in ancient Mesopotamia were among the first group recorded in any civilization to wear lipstick. Created from natural resources, the women would grind precious gemstones and use the dust to adorn their lips with glitter. (I WOULD DEF DO THIS TODAY IF POSSIBLE).

IMPRESSIONS:

On first inspection I was super excited and happy because this box contained items that matched my profile to a tee! I already felt much better about Glossybox compared to the last 2 months….they killed it! I love BioRepublic and having the Aloe rescue was like Glossy read my mind. I have a strange inflamed rash on my face and I have no doubt this will help. Etre Belle Roll-On Caviar Eye Gel looks so innovative with a metal rollerball applicator. The metal tip keeps it super cool and where have you been all my life (review to come). Benefits Professional is already a staple in my routine and the promotion on this is so insane that I haven’t had to buy the full-size yet! The packaging on Teeez Cosmetic Lipstick just blew me away…..loved it! Heat Wave Ruby is a deep berry and deserves it’s on review as well. Last but not least is Glamglow’s ThirstyCleanse and since I own ThirstyMud and its my favorite, I really had no doubts until I tried it! I had a skin reaction to this which is weird because I never had a reaction to anything and I put a lot of products on my face. I haven’t written it off because it could’ve been anything that day. I will definitely try this again. All in all I am extremely happy with Glossybox this month and they have redeemed themselves for the 2 previous boxes.

If you are thinking about a monthly subscription you really should consider Glossybox, especially if you are into trying new brands and high-end brands. You can subscribe monthly, 6 months, or yearly right here.

Have a Great Week!

My daughters have taught me more about beauty and fashion then I could ever teach them. We are three independent and uniquely different women that bring a variety of intriguing ideas and advice based on personal experience. The one thing we do have in common is that we love the beauty and fashion industry and love to test and review new products. Together we decided to create this blog to share our opinions and promote discussions.

    1. That’s interesting! How much did it cost then? I hope considerably less than what it costs now! I haven’t received a perfume sample yet but I also filled out my profile that way.
