GlossyBox Subscription Box Review – November 2014
GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. They have the best packaging in the business, their products are usually deluxe-size or full size, and the value is usually really good too. The only issue with this box seems to be the late shipping – I would recommend just keeping that in mind and setting your expectations accordingly if you sign up for this box.
GlossyBox sent us this box for review purposes. (My Subscription Addiction also pays for this subscription, but I haven’t received a shipping notification email for my November box yet). (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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.

Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
OPI Nail Lacquer in Pink Outside the GlossyBox – FULL SIZE! Value $9.50
So Susan Cosmetics Universal Blush – FULL SIZE! Value $23 (Glossybox lists the price as $23.29, and the So Susan website lists it at $27.95)
This nail polish shade was made for GlossyBox subscribers to match their signature pink subscription box. I love pale pink nail polishes (and have way too many) but I imagine some subscribers may be less excited about this item since they’ve been sending out a lot of nail polish lately.
The blush is mid-pigmented, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally giving yourself super rosy cheeks in one brush stroke. It has a good amount of shimmer, and the color is very flattering. It may be my favorite discovery in the box!
Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer – .5 oz Value $11.25
12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment – 1.5 oz Value $5
I’ve tried this Juice Beauty moisturizer before and I’m a fan so I’m happy to have more! And this 12 Benefits leave-in spray gets great reviews on Birchbox and is supposed to be really good for adding moisture and shine to hair.
Kneipp Herbal Bath Balancing Lavender – 20 ml Value $4
This smells lovely and should be enough for 2 baths.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $54. I will use every item, and I’m happy with the value too). Unfortunately I know a lot of readers have had issues with their shipping times and customer care response time, so even though the box itself is a win for me, I’m really hoping they turn around their shipping issues soon. (Hopefully I get a shipping notification email for my paid subscription soon!)
Also worth noting – I reached out to GlossyBox to try to get answers regarding the late shipments of Mystery Boxes which were supposed to have been all delivered by now. They let me know that all mystery boxes have been shipped out as of today. If you haven’t received your mystery box order yet I recommend reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know – they should be able to give you a status update and hopefully some GlossyDots to make up for it.
