Glossybox Review – January 2014
GlossyBox is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. They typically send out deluxe and full size items, so I find that the sample sizes justify the monthly cost ($21 a month).
The Subscription Box: GLOSSYBOX
The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription)
COUPON: Use coupon code FANFAV to get a free full-size lipstick with your first box!
The Products: Deluxe and full size beauty products.

Each GlossyBox comes with a card detailing the items for the month.
Beauty Blender Pure and Travel Cleanser – Value $20
This is my favorite item in the box even though I already have one! (I think you need to switch them out every one or two months?)
I discovered Beauty Blender through Birchbox and now I use it everyday for applying foundation or CC cream. (If you are new to Beauty Blender, you have to wet it first, then wring out most of the water before you use it).
I’m happy to see they’ve included a cleanser too, but I’ve been able to clean my beauty blender with Honest Co. hand soap, and it works fine too!
Bella Pierre Mineral Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Desert Rose – FULL SIZE! Value $20
This is a great blush shade for me – not too rosy.
Balance Me Super Toning Wash – 1.7 oz Value $7
Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing Spray – 2.5 oz Value $5
I really like the scent of this body wash, and it’s made with 99% natural ingredients!
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream – .5 oz Value $9
I was happy to see that this cream is paraben free, but the scent just isn’t for me. (I’m very picky with skincare scents).
Verdict: As soon as I saw the Beauty Blender was going to be in this box, I knew it would be a good value for me, but I’m happy with almost all the other samples as well! The blush and body wash are definite wins for me, and I’ll give the sea salt spray a chance!
What do you think of the January GlossyBox?
