GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – March 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.
(Based on some of the comments on the February review, it also looks like GlossyBox is starting to send out more variations for subscribers each month, so this box may not be exactly what all subscribers receive for March).
GlossyBox sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Stain in Pink – FULL SIZE! Value $20
So Susan Concealer Quad – FULL SIZE! Value $31
I’ve sampled this cheek and lip stain before, and I like the formula. It is highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way, and I prefer it more as a cheek stain so I blend it in more.
I was excited to see a concealer quad in this box – I imagine with blending, this will work for a variety of skin tones as a concealer, highlighter, and/or contouring cream. I didn’t think it provided enough coverage for under eye circles, but I like it as an overall concealer.
Ouidad Color Preserving Shampoo – 2.5 oz Value $5.30
Ouidad Color Preserving Conditioner – 2.5 oz Value $5.90
I’ve sampled some of Ouidad’s curl enhancing products thanks to Birchbox, but these seem more my style since I usually end up straightening my hair every day!
ModelCO More Brows in Medium/Dark – FULL SIZE! Value $15
This is basically a mascara for brows. It is designed to make brows look fuller and darker. The formula has a very natural-looking result, but this shade is a little too dark for my brows.
Orogold Cosmetics 24K Multi Vitamin Day Moisturizer (2) (15 g total?) – Value $58
This is a relatively lightweight cream – it absorbs quickly and is very moisturizing. It’s a luxe packaged and priced beauty item, and it definitely feels luxe. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it has a perfume-like scent. It isn’t very strong, but something to keep in mind if you have sensitive skin and need to avoid fragrance in skin care products.
(Also – I think the reviews for this product on their site look fake. I could be wrong, but the email addresses for the user names don’t seem legit).
Verdict: I think this is a great GlossyBox. I’m happy with the sizes of all the products, the variety of items included, and the brands. The value of this box is incredible too ($135). That’s assuming I’ve estimated the right size on the day cream, but either way the value is great.
