Unboxing Glossybox May 2016

Hope you all are winding down from a great weekend!

I have to say that May’s Glossybox SLAYED. Some of the products were already in my top 5 and I found 3 products that have a high potential to be staples. I there was ever a subscription that I would fully recommend it would be Glossybox.

Every month Glossybox sends me 5 beauty products including niche, high-end, and emerging brands. The products are housed in a beautifully packaged reusable box for $21/month. I really can’t say enough about the how pretty the packaging is. Inside is a folded card describing each product and offering tips, tricks or tidbits which is convenient and sometimes fascinating. If you love luxury products and super cute packaging you can subscribe here for $21 USD/month.

May’s box was no different with their undeniably supreme packaging, and it gets me every time! I love the heavy feel of the box itself and the occasional special edition boxes. Everything is perfectly packaged, wrapped in tissue paper and tied with a ribbon. I mean come on!!!  Of the three monthly subscriptions that I get, Glossybox is the one I can count on for second to none packaging and introduction to emerging brands. Glossybox has introduced me to so many new brands, which says a lot from a beauty blogger. Most of the time I end up falling in love (this could be very bad, lol.) They also send a lot of brands that I already know & love. There is also a folded card with all the product information, pricing, and tidbits. They do send full-sized items but usually at least 3 are sample or deluxe size. This month there was 1 full-size and 4 deluxe size products. I was excited to get a total of six products!!

There it is, in all it’s glory! This was my favorite Glossybox so far! Already use Nioxin and Roller Lash on a daily basis. The Face tanner was a pleasant surprise. The Shower gel was refreshing, and the star of the show was Photo-Hydro Day!

I am a married mother of two adult daughter's and a teenage son. I am a pediatric oncology nurse and a former beauty school drop out (pause to sing the song .lol). 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.
