May Glossybox

Remember last month when I introduced you to the first Glossybox USA?  Well, I was pleasantly surprised when a second box arrived at my door last week!  They graciously sent me their May edition to review, so I'm sharing all the details with you!  Here are the items I received:

1) PHYTO Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for Dry Hair
What it says: Indulge in luxury and aroma with a conditioning treatment that moisturizes and detangles strands without weighing hair down.  Nourish, revive and delight.
My review: This is perfect for me because my naturally curly hair tends to be more coarse & dry.  It has a clean, fresh scent that smells like you just peeled a lemon and it definitely left my hair feeling light & soft.  I'll use this on a bi-weekly basis as a deep conditioning treatment.

2) Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick (Copper No. 202)
What it says: A creamy lipstick that offers a hint of natural, sheer color leaving your lips moist and dewy.  The perfect present for that perfect pout.
My review:  This is so sheer that it applied more like a tinted lip balm (versus a lipstick) and the color was more mauve than copper.  I like that it's a smaller size, so it would be great for traveling or poolside when your lips need moisture without the heaviness.

3) Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel
What it says: A hydrating gel moisturizer that leaves your skin feeling bright and refreshed.  Notice your complexion visibly improve, giving you confidence and a natural glow.
My review: I was intrigued by this product, mainly because a full-size container is SO expensive...it must be good, right?!  It said to apply morning & night, but I chose to use only once a day because I was afraid it would be too rich for my skin.  Haven't noticed a huge difference in my skin's texture, but it is a great moisturizer!

4) Zoya Arizona (from the Summer 2012 Beach and Surf Collection)
What it says: Dive into the creamy shades and shimmering sea foils of the Zoya Beach & Surf Collection.  Allow your nails to go on a vacation every day.
My review: Love this color, but unfortunately...I already own it.  So, I will be sending this one to my sister-in-law.  If you are looking for the perfect bright tangerine polish, I highly recommend this one - full opacity with 2 coats & so fun for summer!

5) Glossybox Blush Brush
What it says: Crafted from the finest goat's hair - an essential for any world beauty jetsetter.
My review: Getting a nice new makeup brush makes me feel like a kid on Christmas morning.  This one is super-soft and doesn't shed its bristles...LOVE!

6) Marvis Whitening Toothpaste
What it says: Make the most of your splendid smile with a whitening toothpaste dripping in cool mint freshness, all while protecting against decay, tartar and plaque.
My review: I have read about this brand in so many magazines & heard that there are tons of celebrities who swear by it.  But, since my front 4 teeth are porcelain veneers, I have to use a different whitening toothpaste to treat them.  So, I had my hubby test it out & he really likes the flavor and said he'll keep using it.

Have any of you signed up for Glossybox yet or are you planning to?  Thus far, I've been very impressed with the products they've sent and the presentation/packaging is so pretty.  If you're not ready to splurge on it for yourself, I think it would make an amazing birthday or bridal shower gift too!

I'm looking at their website now and am really intrigued by half of the brands they have available (especially OPI and Zoya, and then Cargo!)

How much does Glossybox cost?

I got my 2nd box last week, and was planning on doing a review this week. I like the hair mask a lot, and the lipstick. I wasn't crazy about the nail polish color - I got a jade glittery green. Other than that, I've been pretty impressed!

The nail polish caught my eye right away! I would love to splurge on a service like this...

Looks like you got a great box! Love that nail color.

Lindsay Patrick said...

What a great box! I love that nail polish color, perfect for summertime. I have a Birchbox subscription, have you ever had Birchbox, if so- how did the two compare?

Hi Lindsay,

Yes, I did have a 3-month Birchbox subscription that a friend gifted to me! But I found that alot of the samples weren't a great fit for me. These seem to be better suited to my tastes. :)

Erin Redmond said...

I will have to check them out, I receive BirchBox but this looks more in line of what I like!

That's awesome! I use Phytojoba almost every day (interchanged with Kerastase).

I really want the marvis toothpaste!

2 GIVE-AWAYS on my blog!

Just clicked on the link to see what it's all about. It was kind of vague and "exclusive." Is it expensive? I wonder if I'd tire of getting so many sample sizes of things that I don't necessarily have time to use. Is it REALLY worth the money?

Kimberly said...

Hi Kathy - it's only $21/month (shipping included) and I understand that it may not be a perfect fit for everyone. What I love about it is getting introduced to new products I otherwise wouldn't have known about (or had time to find/research on my own) and everytime you get a box, it's like opening a present! :)

I finally grew my nails after my vacation in turkey so I am all set to go with nail polish - I have my first suggestion here already. I haven't used Glossy box, I don't buy many cosmetics so I like the in store experience, but I think it would make a nice gift, I agree.
