GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 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 and March reviews, 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 April).
GlossyBox sent us this box early for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
This box also came with a GlossyBox makeup pouch that matches the box art design. (FYI – the actual boxes with the art design are in limited supply this month, so once they sell out, subscribers will receive the same items in the standard pink box).
Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum – .24 oz Value $15
Aerin Waterlily Sun Perfume – .3 oz Value $15
I reached out to GlossyBox, and they confirmed that all subscribers will receive these two items – as long as you subscribe to the April box before it sells out. (Once they start selling the “Classic” box that means that the April box has sold out). If you are a current subscriber, than you should be good.
I received this night serum in the October Sample Society box and I’m happy to have more!
The perfume packaging is beautiful, and while I don’t like getting sample vials in boxes, I love getting perfume minis! I like the scent too.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss in Rythm Box – FULL SIZE! Value $18
This is a very pigmented gloss! It’s a bold magenta, and after the gloss goes away a good amount of the pigment stays as a stain. (It is also paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free).
Marrakesh Endz Split End Mender & Preventer – 1 oz Value $6
This is the one brand in the box that is completely new to me. I love that this hair product is free of animal testing and ingredients, plus also free of parabens, phthalates, dyes, etc. The formula is designed to repair split ends and prevent new ones. It’s a relatively lightweight cream, and didn’t weigh my hair down at all. I also like the scent a lot – I can’t figure out exactly what it reminds me of though. Maybe Beauty Protector hair products?
Julep Gel Eye Glider in Olive – FULL SIZE! Value $16
I was a little disappointed to see Julep in this box – just because I get all the Julep products I need in my Julep Maven subscription! That being said, this is one of my favorite Julep cosmetic products. The eyeliner goes on so smoothly, and I love all the shades.
Verdict: I think this is a fantastic GlossyBox. The value is about $70, and I’m happy with the sizes of all the products, and the brands featured. I’m not sure how much variation will be in the April boxes, but I’m happy to see that the serum and perfume samples everyone will receive are worth more than the cost of the box alone.
Oh – and the packaging deserves a mention too – it is so fun!
