GlossyBox Review & Experience
So Glossy Box is a beauty subscription box that is monthly. They send 5 to 6 premium items with a value of $60 or more. Most everything I have ever received or seen others received is a sample size. So you must be cool with receiving samples! I am not a sample girl, I can't ever tell if I like the product or not with so little to try. I also think they cause clutter. All of the brands seem to be great. The box everything came in is my favorite part. It is so cute and it is a nice box! I plan to reuse it to store things. Of the 7 products I received, I am excited about none of them but will try 3 of them.
One of the things that Glossy Box does offer than I think is both weird and cool is that you can subscribe Monthly at $21, or you can sign up for a year at only $18 a month, and they don't make you pre-pay upfront. Your card is still charged monthly at the lower rate. So you don't have to come up with a large payment to get started, which is nice. I know for others like Ipsy, Boxy Charm, Allure, etc., to get the cheaper yearly rate, you have to pre-pay. So I did want to share this.
Here is what I received in the Glossy Box July 2020 – Aloha
- Polaar Northern Light Smoothing Cream – nice lotion, no scent really, I tossed it in my office desk to keep at work.
- Monuskin Soothing Hawaii Facial Oil in Sandalwood & Lavender – these are 2 of my all-time favorite scents, but I don't use scents on my face because it triggers headaches.
- Palm Balm Lip & Cheek Balm & Color in Mauve Wave – not a product I enjoy using just as a whole
- Freeman Hawaiian Black Salt Peel-Off Mask – I usually only use sheet masks because the other masks are too messy and/or they hurt LOL, but I do think I am going to give this a try. It says 3 – 4 uses in this sample.
- Hask Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner – got 2 of these and can't use them, my hair hates coconut.
- Daily Concepts Exfoliating Dual Texture Scrubber in Mild – I have used their gloves several times before, and they are great! So I will add this to that pile for later use. I love these during the summer when my skin is rough & in the winter when I'm self-tanning.
Anyhow, all that aside, I received seven items in this box, of which 2 of the items I can't use and plan to gift to a friend. The remaining five items I will try but I did go ahead and cancel my subscription because even just this one box of samples has started the clutter stress in me LOL.
