GlossyBox Subscription Box Review – January 2015
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.

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
VICHY Purete Thermale 3-In-1 One Step Cleanser – 1 oz Value $2.90
Skin&Co Roma Truffle Therapy Serum – 5 ml Value $12.50
This VICHY cleanser is supposed to be a milk cleanser, toner and makeup remover in one. It’s also paraben free, and I think the scent is pretty subtle and clean.
This Skin&Co serum absorbs instantly on my skin, and I like the somewhat sweet scent. It’s going to have to be a miracle serum for me to justify buying a full size version though ($75 for one ounce).
Teeez Trend Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush – Value $23.50
I can never get enough makeup brushes in subscription boxes, so this is a great box addition for me. Plus the pattern on the handle is fun.
Kueshi Revitalizing Face Toner – FULL SIZE! Value $13.50
Lollipops Eye Pencil in Goodbye Moon – FULL SIZE! Value $17.70
Toners don’t seem to show up in subscription boxes that often, so getting a full-size toner in this box is great – it should last me a while.
I feel like GlossyBox probably sends out a few too many black eyeliners every year, but this brand is new to me, and I love the packaging design, so at least there’s that! As far as the actual eyeliner goes, it seems to be pretty smudge proof.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $70. I think it’s a really good box, and I like that they focused on some skincare items for the new year. In general this is a very useable box to me. What do you think of the January 2015 GlossyBox?
