GlossyBox US | 2012 May Box Review

GlossyBox US // 2012 May Box Review
After waiting months for GlossyBox to become available in the US, I was thrilled to get an email last month saying, it was time to sign-up to receive your GlossyBox for May. Yes, it is like Birchbox, but with GlossyBox you get products from around the world and they are travel sized products, not sample. Another thing, it is more money then BB too, but I really love this subscription site. In fact, I might cancel my BB subscription next month and just get GlossyBox. That is how much I love this. Right now my three favorite {I'm-in-love-with-this} subscription sites are: 1) Little Black Bag 2) StyleMint 3)Glossybox Of course, I'm only subscribed to 5 sites {& I skip some months}. The other two are Birchbox and JustFab - which I like too, but those three that I listed, I just can't get enough of them!

This what the inside of the box looks like. Their packaging is adorable! The bonus product in my box was the GlossyBox blush brush.

1) Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick Copper No.202 {UK} Price of Full Size: $30 - "A creamy lipstick that offers a hint of natural, sheer color leaving your lips moist and dewy." I was so excited to see a Burberry product in my box, as I love this brand, well, from just looking as I don't own anything from Burberry. Just look, they even have the Burberry plaid imprinted on the lipstick! Too cute. Anyways, I love this sheer lipstick.

2) ZOYA Summer 2012 - Beach and Surf Collection {USA} Price of Full Size: $8 - "Dive into the creamy shades and shimmering sea foils of the Zoya Beach & Surf Collection. Allow your nails to go on vacation every day." At first I was like, "I'm not sure if I'll wear this color" as I've never own a shimmer polish before. Now I just love this color & polish! I've been wearing it non-stop since it arrived on my nails.

3) Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel Price of Full Size $100 - "A mineral rich, oil- free, hydrating gel, which encourages skin's optimal hydration levels for a clearer, and radiantly smooth complexion. Unique, water-free formulation utilizes Stabilized Bamboo Sap in lieu of distilled water for improved skin vitality. Infused with brightening botanicals such as Ginger Root and stress fighting minerals such as Magnesium to leave the complexion refreshingly hydrated with a vibrant, clear and matte appearance." I haven't tried this product out yet. It smells great & love the minty color. *smile*

4) PHYTO Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for Dry Hair {France} Price of Full Size: $38 - "A staple at top salons, this aromatic formula, enriched with jojoba oil, instantly moisturizes, softens, and detangles without weighing your hair down. A unique concentration of angelica root extract (75%) and essential oil of sweet orange imparts brilliance and vitality. Your hair regains silkiness, elasticity and manageability." This is my first time using a hair mask, and I must say, this stuff is pretty awesome. I've used it a couple times already and I can tell a difference with my hair. It is softer, and feels less dry.

  5) MARVIS Whitening Mint Toothpaste {Italy} Price for Full Size $7.50 - "Imported from Florence, Italy, Marvis is a superior dental brand that has been loved in Italy for generations. Marvis Whitening, with a sharp taste of cool mint for a pleasant and lasting freshness, carries out a whitening activity on your teeth for a more beautiful and splendid smile. The whitening formula protects your teeth, helps prevent tooth decay, tartar and plaque. Meanwhile innovative notes offer you a long-lasting pleasurable taste sensation and fresh breath all day long. This distinctive, display-worthy tube will most likely be the best looking accessory in your bathroom." Once again, I haven't tried out this one either {I just keep grabbing my normal toothpaste}. Hmm...maybe I should try it out tonight? Anyways, it is mint {which is my favorite flavor}.

I'm thinking I might cancel my Birchbox subscription & just get the Glossybox {it depends on how good the June Glossybox is}. Anyways, as of right now I really enjoy this subscription site, and the good thing is that they ship to a bunch of countries around the world. Yay, for my international readers! Just google Glossybox and your country to see if you can get one too.

    1. For StyleMint you take a style quiz and then you can buy as many tops, bottoms, dresses, sunglasses that you love. The designers for StyleMint are Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen.

      Little Black Bag - Once again, you take a style quiz, then you pick one item you really want. Buy that item & one of the LBB stylist will add two other items to your bag. Then the true fun begins, you can trade any of the things inside your bag for other items on the site with others on the site. Does that make sense? =)
