GlossyBox May 2014 Bergdorf Goodman Box Review

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

GlossyBox May 2014 Bergdorf Goodman Box

If you follow this blog regularly then you may know that I’ve been a little obsessed about the May 2014 GlossyBox because of the Bergdorf Goodman collaboration and $25 Bergdorf Goodman gift card in every box!

So I was very excited when GlossyBox offered to send me this advanced release box to review. (My regular subscription GlossyBox will come later – hopefully this month – and I’ll post a second review if it’s different).

GlossyBox May 2014 Bergdorf Goodman Box Review Items

The Subscription Box: GLOSSYBOX

The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription)

The Products: Deluxe and full size beauty products.

Check out all of my GlossyBox reviews and the list of the best beauty and makeup subscription boxes!

GlossyBox May 2014 Bergdorf Goodman Box Review Info

Each GlossyBox comes with card detailing the items included – nothing too different then the normal box card.

GlossyBox May 2014 Bergdorf Goodman Box Review Cream

Alterna Caviar CC Cream – .85 oz Value $8.50

Atelier Cologne in Rose Anonyme – 7 ml Value $20

I love all my Alterna hair products (including this CC Cream) because the smell great, work great and also are free of ingredients like phthalates and parabens! (And even though I always complain about tiny perfume vial samples, I get pretty excited about perfume minis – they are so cute!)

GlossyBox May 2014 Bergdorf Goodman Box Review Mascara

Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara – .13 oz Value $11

Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer – .5 oz Value $13.25

This mascara was reviewed well by the Huffington Post – I’m excited to try it!

GlossyBox May 2014 Bergdorf Goodman Box Review Serum

Revive Intensite Volumizing Eye Serum – .1  oz Value $70

Lancer Lift Serum Intense – .15 oz Value $55

This Lancer Lift Serum gets excellent reviews, and I’m excited to try it – but I am a little worried I’ll love it too much – the full size is $275!

Verdict: This box will also have a $25 Bergdorf Goodman gift card, but since this is a preview box, I don’t have one to show. (Also, I confirmed – the gift card is a true gift card – you enter the code in the gift card section of checkout – not the coupon section!) This box has a value of about $175 – not counting the Bergdorf Goodman gift card! The value is incredible, and I’m already excited to see what I get in my May GlossyBox when my subscription ships – hopefully if these serums work for me I’ll get some doubles! (There are quite a few samples you could get in the May box though – so my real box may be very different).

What do you think of the Bergdorf Goodman GlossyBox?

  1. So I originally ordered a box and also ordered a gift box. They sent the original May box to the wrong address and now I received a generic e-mail saying that the box is out of stock and that they would credit my account 1,000 glossydots and issue a refund for the box. Well, I just think that well it is good that they are refunding me and giving me 1,000 glossy dots, but that means that the box that was meant for me was returned to them and sent to someone else. I think that’s terrible. Now I get 1,000 glossydots to use on another box that will pale in comparison to the May box with the $25 gift card. Too bad that I signed up for an annual subscription. I will have to seriously consider if I will be renewing after my one year is up. On top of that I received my Mother’s Day box late because they had the wrong address on there as well. But I still got that even though it was “sold out” by the time that they mailed it. Anyone else in the same situation?

  2. So I used my $25 gift card at the Bergdorf Goodman website a couple of weeks ago. I also signed up for their e-mails (hey, it entered me into a sweepstakes to win a $2000 gift card). And today BG sent me a $25 promo code to use off a $100 purchase. (Can’t share it because it’s tied to my e-mail address.)

    Their stuff is kind of pricy for me but if I can combine this with eBates or other deals, and/or buy clearance stuff or makeup that has gifts with purchase, this might actually be worthwhile.

  3. I feel like I’m losing my mind, has anyone else STILL not received their May box?

  4. Well, I don’t know what was wrong with my Glossy Box but when I tried to use the gift card on BG’s website the company charged my credit card for the entire amount and then told me that they did not recognize the gift card. I had a week’s worth of back and forth e-mails with the customer service reassuring them that the gift card WAS indeed from them and is legit. When I called the headquarters they told me that Glossy Box did NOT collaborate with BG and gave me a full refund. What the heck? Am I the only person this happened to??

  5. I just got this and I am astonished at the value of this Glossybox. I don’t know how they do it. So much more high-end than Birchbox or Ipsy, and with their annual subscription deal it’s only a few dollars more per month! Glossy box has a terrible website interface, non-existent customer service and everything is shipped late, but when they finally deliver, boy do they DELIVER.

  6. Just got my first box. I love it and I think the Rose cologne smells wonderful. I was worried because rose is typically an older persons choice fragrance but it has spicy tones and is very clean smelling. I used my gift card to buy a bar of soap same fragrance. Mascara is great and excited to try creams primers and the rest.

  7. I received my box yesterday and LOVE it! The perfume wasn’t for me but still the box is so fun and a great value. I just went online to Bergdorf Goodman and used my $25.00 coupon to purchase another glossy box. The shipping is free so it cost me $15.00 and I’m now looking forward to another one, I hope I get a different mix!

  8. I am very happy with my box, I was hoping for a mascara or even a lip gloss both which are on my profile as favorites. I received the Lancer eye serum, Lancôme elixir, the Revive eye cream, the perfume and the cream rinse. But I will get to try the Diorshow mascara for free. 🙂 I am anticipating the June box, I want those sneak peeks!

  9. I LOVE this box, it feels so sophisticated. I got a rose hand cream instead of perfume and it’s nice and very subtle. I love the packaging on the napoleon primer. I can’t wait to go to bergdorf goodman and buy something (for the first time in my life I think). I adore this box! Glossybox is such a treat every month!

    • Yes, I LOVE my box as well. Already used my gift card and item has bee shipped.

  10. Can we talk about the gift cards we got for BG? I have 2 of them and I’m seeing not much you can get there for $50. I’m so torn between getting something practical (Clinique items I already use which are affordable), or something I can’t find locally (Alterna hair products that I’ve sampled and loved), or just some ridiculous item that I’d never actually spend $50 on. So, has anyone used theirs yet and care to share what you found? Liz, maybe we could have a whole post on this – what did you use yours for?

    • I think we must be onto the next round of products. My box arrived today and contained the NP primer, Révive eye serum, Alterna CC cream, Atelier cologne (smells like old ladies to me, lol), Lancer serum and Hourglass mascara – value $12.

    • I only had one, and got a Bobbi Brown makeup book and some hair clips. Not too exciting but I didn’t want to spend over the value of the card. They had some clearance bras that were cute for around $35 I think. I would look in the sale section and sort from low to high on price so you can see what your options are!

      • I got one of the clearance bras. Think I spent $11 out of pocket. I really needed new bras, though, and I would’ve spent twice as much at Victoria’s Secret on a bra, so this worked out for me.

      • Thanks for the idea of getting a Bobbi Brown book – I ended up getting one!

    • I just read a post on MUT. The gift cards from Glossy can be used at Neiman Marcus! They also have a Neiman Marcus last call.

      • I just bought a $70 leather tray at Neiman Marcus Last Call – used my BG/Glossybox GC and only paid shipping. Thanks Glossybox!

    • I got an alterna hair care product, the kendi shine oil in the mirco mist. It was 25 and I used my gift crad and got in for free, didn’t have to pay shipping or anything!

    • I splurged on something I would normally never get without a coupon. I got a Tom Ford lipstick ($50!) but with the coupon and free shipping I paid half that and now have the best lipstick ever. I got nude blush in case you were wondering 🙂 And it was shipped to me within two days! So excited by the value of the box and the gift card which allowed me to get something I normally wouldn’t be able to justify spending that much on.

  11. Am excited about this box which I received today, except for the cologne (eww) and the Philip B conditioner. Definitely don’t need another rinse out conditioner and was looking forward to trying the CC Cream leave-in. Oh well, half good, half I’ll probably toss. At least I didn’t get another mascara.

    • I received my box today and I LOVE it. I did not get the cologne/perfume, but instead the hand & body cream, which I love more. I am very happy with this box.

  12. Oh no! This was my first glossybox experience and I hate every product I received. I’m also a newbie to the subscription boxes in general but have been avidly reading mysubscriptionaddiction for a few months and carefully picking my first few boxes (birchbox should be arriving any day now!).ci was hoping for the CC cream,mascara and ReVive
    Intensité Volumizing Eye Serum and didn’t receive any of them, instead mostly anti-aging products, which I’m not using yet. Also, I received 3 eye firming products! Really?! Thankfully the gift card makes this purchase a wash (and I will be posting my products on the swapboard ASAP 😉 ). But mostly I’m sad my first box was such a let-down. 🙁 the box was cute though and all products are in perfect condition.

  13. YAY!! I just got mine and am happy with everything in it. 🙂 I was a bit leery about how floral-y the perfume would be, until I opened it…the little bit of added spice makes it smell very good. I also got the Lancome Regenerating Ultimate Elixir rather than mascara or lipgloss or whatever else may have been in place of those. Rather than the CC cream I got a Philip B conditioning cream rinse, but all the rest of the products were the same as the box Liz has posted. This Elixir is fantastic, but no way would I spend $360 on the full size, so the mini will just have to do. 😉 The overall value of this box is fantastic, over $200, granted, I won’t be repurchasing many items, so the opportunity to get mini sizes/deluxe samples is great. Glossybox did another great job! 🙂

  14. I got mine yesterday but instead of the mascara I got the face wash (which was a great makeup remover last night). I honestly don’t have anything bad to say about this box. People can complain about the shipping, the products, the lack of variety but I personally have nothing bad to say. With the $25 GC I was able to buy my face wash & toner (smaller size #4) at Clinique for $1.50 + all my goodies I get to try. I’d say this was a win win for me! 🙂

    • It’s great to hear something positive about this box. Despite all the grief, they’re still one of the better beauty subs out there.

      • Definitely! The price always outweighs the $21 spent. I don’t mind getting the box at the end of the month because well… it always comes at the end of the month. I didn’t expect to buy any of the items in this box full size because it is Bergdorf’s & the full sizes are way out of my price range. Thankfully the samples worked for me so it will be a nice ‘luxury’ to use some of them. =)

        • I’ve seen the lipgloss selling for $34 (or more). Definitely wouldn’t pay $34 for a lipgloss (not even one I really liked…). I agree that the value far outweighs what you pay for it (I got my box for less than $15 because of a coupon code for a year’s subscription and the gift card alone was more than that). I sort of hope I don’t fall in love with any of the products because I could never justify the full purchase price. However, it is nice to get to sample something I’d ordinarily otherwise never experience.

  15. i just received my box today and i was looking at hashtags of this month’s box and it seems like everyone got pretty much the same thing (primer, lancer, cc cream), with the exception of either the lip gloss or the cleanser… perhaps some got the mascara but i was expecting a bit more variation between subscribers. but of course what i saw was only a fraction of what everyone got. lol.

    • Yeah, when they were promoting the box, they said there were 15 items. But I’ve only seen 8 of them in reviews and/or comments…

      • It seems to me like they had a certain number of versions of the box and they sent all version 1s out first and then all version 2s and so on so as the shipments continue to be received, we’ll start to see some of the other products included. I’m just starting to hear people getting the hand and body lotion for instance, and I suspect that by next week, nobody will be getting the lip gloss version anymore. I imagine that’s why people who ordered multiple boxes all got their boxes at the same time and with the same contents instead of any variety.

        • That makes sense, I’ve also noticed a shift in box contents as the days have passed.

          I wonder what makes them put a person in a particular shipping group? My first box was April and I signed up for a 1 year subscription (because Liz posted an awesome promo code). My April box was way late but my May box got here a couple of days ago.

  16. I got the same box except instead of mascara I got the iluminage cleanser

  17. Got almost the same box as Liz (and at least half the other people who posted comments): just had lipgloss instead of mascara. I’m not too upset about that as I have 4 or 5 mascaras I haven’t even opened yet (granted, I have like 20 different lipglosses at the moment). I have tried the Alterna CC cream before from Sample Society. Not sure that I need TWO eye creams but I’ll give them both a try. Used my gift card to buy a bra from the sale section of the BG site (got it for $11 out of pocket and I needed new bras).

    As far as shipping time goes, I got a tracking e-mail 6 days ago and received my box on the 28th. Got my April box on May 8 so there is some improvement there, for me at least.

    I do wish they would make the tracking number clickable. I never even would have known which carrier’s tracking to check if not for someone who posted their tracking info. for the April box. What good is a tracking number if you don’t know the carrier?! (I know the carrier now. But it’s NOT obvious from the e-mails.)

    • On mine the tracking number itself isn’t clickable but there is a link just above it that goes directly to the carrier site? I don’t know if that’s helpful at all. It looks like this.

      • You’re right, it’s there for me, too. Guess I should’ve read the e-mail…

  18. This is a strange question but can the gift card be used at neiman marcus? I have been given gift cards before that could be used at both. I think they are owned by the same folks.

    • I would also like to know! I have a Nieman Marcus near me but no Bergdorfs, but I know you can use Bergdorf gift cards at Nieman. Not sure about this promo gift card, though, since it comes on a Glossybox card rather than a real GC.

      • On the back of the promo card it says that it is only redeemable at BG (online, in stores or by phone).

  19. I was all excited for mine to arrive today. Tracking said “out for delivery” at 10:18 AM. Well…it is now almost 11 PM and it STILL says “out for delivery.” Maybe tomorrow…

    Think I’m going to use the gift card for underwear. I am in need of some and they have some stuff in the sale section that would normally be outside of my price range but with the gift card and the sale, it won’t be too bad.

  20. I got mine on Friday and am happy with the samples as well as the sample sizes. Did anyone get the Kevin Aucoin mascara sample? I did not get it and instead got the Chantecaille lip gloss instead. I am fine with that but would have liked to try the mascara. I got the Aucoin eye shadow set in the Net-a-Porter Glossy Box limited edition box and i love it.

  21. Thanks for your blog- I check it every month to see what I am about to get in the mail!
    I saw a previous poster mention that she put an item up for swap. I have several items at home that I won’t use. Where is the best place to swap items, and it it trustworthy that the person you’re trading with will really send you the item you traded for?

    Thanks!

  22. I received my Glossy box yesterday, so excited ,this box was totally worth the wait. I got the same items as Liz also except I got the lip gloss instead of the mascara. I did three months so I hope they do another discount soon.

  23. Got my box today :). I love all the stuff! I can’t wait to try everything in it! So glad I ordered it! I got a mini chantecaille lip gloss instead of the mascara – I was hoping for the mascara. It’s cute lip gloss yet a bit to sparkly for me.

  24. So, May is the end of my 3-month subscription and I’m debating whether to renew or not. I haven’t gotten my May box yet – it is looking like it will arrive around Wednesday. However, I bought 2 gift boxes for May – one for ‘me’ (I used my hedgehog’s name) and one for my sister. We both got them today – and at only $15 each. She and I got the same items:
    1. $25 Bergdorf Goodman gift card (good until June 15th – so going to add this to the $25 when I get my box – $50 can actually buy something there).
    2. Napoleon Perdis – Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer
    3. Atelier Cologne – if you loved Alex and Ani Scent 7 you’ll love this (yuck.. I’ve already put it up for swap)
    4. Revive Eye Serum (holy heck this sample is worth $70)
    5. Chantecaille lip gloss – this is the only item I got that was different than what Liz has listed above – in place of the mascara she got.
    6. Alterna Caviar CC Cream – I’ve been dying to try this – been stalking swaps trying to get it so now I have it and maybe my box next week will also have it – Alterna has been the best find from these sub boxes.
    7. Lancer Eye Contouring Lifting Cream – my sister is substantially younger than me (she is 22 and I’ll be 40 in a few months) and this was an item she tried out and really liked but of course we both are not wanting to like it since the full size is $95 for 1/2 ounce.

    This box has me wanting to re-sub, and also the idea that if I love a box I can order a ‘gift’ one for my hedgie for $15 – and get it sooner than my own… ha! I never did get the Lotus Cream on my original 3 month subscription (promo code) and contacted them and they insist they’ve mailed it out 2x now.. but I’m sure they didn’t and just trying to get them to respond is painful so I don’t know. For June I subscribed to Sample Society/Beauty Bar which is $6 cheaper and features 2 brands I really like – Dermalogica and Alterna. Maybe when I hear some June Glossybox spoilers I’ll decide.

    • I got the same Alterna CC cream in a Sample Society box a few months back.

      I think my Glossybox costs less than Sample Society because I used a wonderful coupon code Liz sent around in the e-mail newsletter. I paid something like $155 (maybe $165) for an entire year. I probably wouldn’t have signed up but the deal was too good to pass up. I should get my May Glossybox today or Tuesday. Looking forward to it!

  25. I’m getting kind of worried … I haven’t even received the shipping information yet. My Glossybox account says that the box was paid for and now it says packed, so I guess I’m just waiting around like everyone else this month. I was so surprised to see that this post was posted on May 12th, but then I looked at the comments and saw that most other people haven’t gotten their boxes yet.

    I mean, if Glossybox wants to ship out their boxes at the end of the month all of the time, that’s fine, just give everyone one date that the boxes get shipped out and an on or about date for when everyone will receive theirs. This is ridiculous, especially when some people are receiving their boxes three weeks before everyone else does, and then some other people are getting their boxes in the first week of the next month.

    • Great. I thought “choose an image for your comment” meant the profile picture. So now there’s a huge picture of me on my comment, please ignore that >< oops

    • I’m a bit antsy too. Usually I’m one of the first to receive their box and I haven’t even got tracking yet.

    • I’ve only subscribed for a couple of months, but it seems like the shipping confirmation has always come just a couple of days after the site says it is in the pack phase, so it should happen for you soon!

      • I got a shipping notice with USPS tracking 14 days ago and the box finally arrived today. Glossy needs to accurately state their delivery window up front rather than forcing customers to ask about it. And they need to ship at the same time, or at least in a closer timeframe from one wave to the next. My sister is still waiting for hers to SHIP. If she has the wait once it does finally ship that I had, the gift card will be meaningless.

        And what happened to Glossy saying the expiration date was being extended for those like my sister who may have a day to use it once the box is delivered? Yet another Glossy fake promise. Once again, after my 3 month sub is up, I’ll go back to just ordering LE boxes from them. I got a decent value since it worked out to $15/month with the promo, but (1) glossy needs to start including more cosmetics and less skin care (the majority of products seem to be the same category item consistently from month to month. There were two eye serums this month alone. And the lipgloss replacement for the mascara? Not good and definitely not as valuable as what bloggers received in preview boxes, and (2) they need to include at least one larger sized product. I’d rather get 4-5 items in a larger size than 5-6 in minis.

  26. Just wanted to say that I got my boxes today which was both ahead of their projected delivery dates and even earlier than my tracking info said. I got my monthly box and I had also ordered 2 additional gift boxes, one a couple weeks after the first and still all 3 boxes arrived today, so they must ship by region or customer rather than order date specifically. The only disappointment was that I ordered the additional boxes (and even staggered the order dates) in hopes of being able to try a selection of the 15 products advertised, but all 3 boxes had the identical 6 items. All three boxes came with a unique $25 gift card code and I was able to stack the codes on one order. I ordered a 4-pack of Clarisonic brush heads ($75) which cost exactly $0 after the gift cards, and I got to pick 2 free samples to ship with my BG order too, so I will get a couple more goodies to try, even though I’m sure they’ll be foil packs.

  27. Can’t believe it, but I got the tracking e-mail just now. It’s supposed to be here next week (just to clarify, I’m talking about the May Bergdorf-Goodman box, shipped from the Glossybox warehouse; I got April’s box on May 8).

    • I wonder WHY Glossybox can not get he boxes to us on the given months. Very annoying.

      • I’m actually on track to get mine on the 27th or 28th. This is only my second Glossybox, though, so I haven’t experienced as much shipping FAIL as other subscribers (though I’ve read about it on their Facebook page).

        • Same here, I got my first box ( April ) quick and the May box is on its way according to tracking. Customer service seems good, they respond to my questions quick and seem nice.

          • I haven’t had to deal with customer service. I’m not surprised my April box was late, as I subscribed very late. But there are a lot of gripes on their Facebook page about late shipping.

      • Last month my box was MIA for quite a long time. Questions were vaguely answered by GB but I got mine on time this month. Happy with the items, wish they were larger. Love Philip B, may be looking for it in swaps.

  28. Does any one know how cancelling works? May is my last box of my three month subscription and I want to avoid getting billed again June 1. So I emailed Glossybox and they didn’t respond but now a “reactivate” button showed up. Is that mean it’s cancelled? And now I’m concerned that my may one may get stopped (if that’s possible) since their boxes ship so late and you can’t wait til after your last one or you’ll get charged.

    • If you check your credit card statement you’ll see whether Glossybox has taken payment for May’s box. If they have, then you’ll receive the box.

  29. Hello Ladies, any recommendations on what to use the gift card on? I’d like to keep it under $40.

    Thank, Lisa

    • I took the liberty of setting up an account at Bergdorf Goodman, then created a wish list. I only added the cheapest items in each category, but there’s bound to be something in Beauty at that price.

  30. GOOD NEWS! (at least if you’re salivating over the May box)

    Glossybox posted on their facebook page that the Bergdorf $25 GC’s expiration date will be JULY 15, not June 15 as they originally said.

    So that’s good news! (Now if only they don’t wait til June 1st or later to send it….)

    • Where did you see that they’d extended the expiration date? I’m not seeing that anywhere on their Facebook page.

      • I didn’t receive a tube of Napoleon Perdis primer, just some sample packets – far less than half the .5oz tube. What can I do? CS probably won’t reply to an email.

  31. I just read this review and my door bell rang and it was the Fed Ex man with my BG GB. After looking through the packing and every where in the shipping box, I can say there was no Gift Card in my box that I purchased. The items in my box were just as listed above. I’m still happy with the box, but was looking forward to the added perk. Oh well!

    • I never heard of anyone getting Glossybox this early in the same month! Are you a regular subscriber (like us peons) or a beauty blogger??

      • I’m a regular subscriber and not a blogger or reviewer. I ordered the BG box on 5/7 and got an email on 5/ 9 confirming shipment. I subscribe to the monthly Glossybox and revived my May box last week with my Popsugar May box. I try to do annual subscriptions, so I’m not sure if that makes a difference but I seem to always get the Glossybox at the start of the month. I did email Glossybox and they are looking into my missing Giftcard issue. Thanks!

        • I miss spoke, I just received my APRIL Glossybox last week. I received this box today, but I purchased this box for $40 from Bergdorf Goodman’s website. This box was shipped from Bergdorf Goodman’s Sales Division in Texas.

          • I thought the ones ordered through BG weren’t getting the gift cards. It wasn’t listed on their website as having the gift card.

    • There’s a chance the gift code may be printed somewhere on the item card? Otherwise definitely let GlossyBox know!

      • I am truly looking forward to my FIRST ever Glossybox. Yes, I am VERY new to all of this. SO I am excited to get mine. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

    • The gift card is on the back of the card that shows what you received.

  32. I ordered a second box through the gift option. I really hope I get a few different products in each. I really wouldn’t mind if I got doubles of the Lancer or Revive:)

  33. Would love to know what people think about the Kevyn Aucoin mascara! I don’t subscribe to Glossybox but, yes, am still waiting on the two Mother’s Day ones I ordered. Will hold off on a subscription until it looks like they have figured out their shipping issues.

    • As a long time Glossybox subscriber I can confidently say that they’re highly unlikely to do anything about their shipping issues. I’ve learned to forget when the box ‘should’ arrive and just be delighted when it turns up.

      • I just saw this of facebook:
        GLOSSYBOX Boxes will arrive before 6/8 and the card will be valid online another week after that. We will assist on a case by case basis in the event that your card is expired before you receive your box Natalie, but we’re not expecting that to be the case at all.

        Where did you see the July post?

        • It was on their Facebook page, under a May 12 post asking when the GC will expire:
          GLOSSYBOX No– it will expire July 15th.
          Like · May 14 at 3:48pm

  34. I hate to even say this considering this is one of my favorite boxes (when it finally arrives) month after month. The value ALWAYS exceeds the amount paid 3 times as much. That being said I find it laughable that you & the other blog I follow “Suburban Mom” or something have already received boxes to review, meanwhile the rest of us won’t get boxes for weeks (even after we’ve been charged for June, most likely). It really is obnoxious. I can’t bring myself to cancel the box due to the value but their efficiency to ship the boxes is really lacking. I get charged $21 on the 1st EVERY SINGLE TIME & I do not receive the box until the following month 30+ days later. What gives?!

  35. A pretty nice box this month. Kinda makes up for last month’s epic fail – I traded away everything in April’s box.
    Heather, even if you don’t get the rose scented perfume, I’m sure you’ll be able to swap for one!

  36. The box looks great! My only concern is I will like some of the samples so much, I will want to purchase the full size products which are not affordable. When I get my 2 boxes, I’ll probably end up swapping the “This Lancer Lift Serum” since I don’t want to try it and like it – LOL ….Looking forward to trying the Atelier Cologne in Rose Anonyme.

    • Hi Anne, I never got my May box either due to yet another shipping issue (they dropped my apartment number) but as part of their making it right, they gave me my BG coupon code. Might be worth asking anyway. Good luck!

      • Thanks for the tip Karen. I emailed them. Hope they give me my code!

        • My code was worth $5 had to enter it as a coupon code ( only way it works ) – Shipping is pricey – So I wont be using the $5 code

  37. I am still waiting to receive my April box!

    I feel this reflects very poorly on Glossybox.

    The fact that they are willing to ship bloggers a free box very early in the month for advertising purposes and many of their current paid subscribers have still not received their box from the previous month is extremely frustrating and, I feel, not a true representation of their service or delivery times. This is almost false advertising.

    Glossybox has ignored my emails and tweets asking where my April box is. I feel they don’t value their current customers and the fact that you got a box this early simply because of your blog reflects that.

    I’m in no way begrudging you or your blog, I’m just incredibly frustrated at Glossybox’s lack of delivery and customer service.

    • You hit the nail on the head.

    • I feel for you too. As this will be my first GLOSSYBOX ever. I am also disappointed that bloggers get the box before the regular subscribers. BUT I love MY SUBSCRIPTION ADDICTION… she is doing such a wonderful job. SO it is two fold with me. 🙂

  38. I think it looks phenomenal. I’m also scared to death that it won’t arrive in time to use the gift card.

    Right now Glossybox’s facebook page is FULL of women, screaming that they still – still! – haven’t gotten their $40 Mother’s Day box. Someone there mentioned Glossybox Canada suddenly shutting down; I looked it up, and that’s just what happened. Last MAY, in fact.

    I don’t know. I really want to buy another box as a gift, but after the social media mgr. at their facebook page literally spent the entire month BEFORE mother’s day, reassuring everyone that yes, the box would make it there in plenty of time…

    There is a 7-day window of opportunity with the Bergdorf GC. If the box is late, what happens then? Are the $25 GCs worthless?

    • Katy, where did you get the info on the gift card’s expiration? I stuck around for one more month because of the value of this box, but I’m going to be really upset if Glossybox’s shipping issue screws us out of using the GCs. I’m sure they’ll work something out, or BG will still honor the cards, but jeeze!

    • Gosh, I hope the GIFT CARDS will not have expired by the time we get our boxes. THAT would be very disappointing.

    • I got my April GB this past Saturday (5/3). Before then, I emailed asking about my box since the April info disappeared from the site, DAYS passed before a response which came the morning after my April box shipped–of course.

      In my email to them I also inquired about the May box, threatening to unsubscribe if I get the box without enough time to use the gift card. Apparently my box (hopefully everyone’s) will ship the third week of May.

      We’ll see if that happens. I’d think this month would run smoothly as Bergorf/Neiman Marcus is not a brand to mess around with in regards to customer service or brand equity.

  39. Really looking forward to this months box!

  40. O man if I get all this!!!!!!…. ill look the other way on their sloooow shipping 🙂

  41. I’m really hoping I get one with the perfume in it!! I love rose scented everything 🙂

    • Yes, I love Rose scents as well.
