GlossyBox Subscription Box Review – July 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.
GlossyBox sent us this box early 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.
Hey Honey I Peel Good Biomimetic Creamy Honey Peel Cream – .5 oz Value $29.50
This Hey Honey Peel is half the size of the full size version, and a new product from the Hey Honey line. (It is currently only available for pre-order on the Hey Honey site). I couldn’t find the ingredients online yet, but I decided to try it anyway since I’ve never had any issues with other Hey Honey products.
The formula is a little sticky/tacky at first, and you apply it to your face, then massage it in for 2-3 minutes. (After about a minute the formula becomes less sticky and more oily). I like any skincare routine product that takes less than 5 minutes, so I was excited to try this one. It was easy enough to use, and you just rinse off the peel at the end of 3 minutes. It left my skin feeling smoother and softer, so I’ll definitely use this on a regular basis.
Face Stockholm Eye Lip Liner – FULL SIZE Value $17
(Colors will vary on this item). The info card shows a pink lip liner pencil, and I would have preferred a shade in the pink/red range, but this will work for me as an eyeliner.
Cargo Cosmetics Water Resistant Blush in Coronado – .14 oz Value $9.80
I’ve sampled the Water Resistant Blush in Los Cabos and I like the formula, so I’m happy to have another shade. This color barely shows up on my skin, so I’ll use it for a subtle blush look.
Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $5.50
This lip balm has a refreshing minty flavor. It is very moisturizing and adds a bit of shine too. (My lip balm wishlist trifecta!)
Kueshi Anticellulite Booster – FULL SIZE! Value $22.60
I was having difficulty finding this product for sale online, so I’m using the value Glossybox listed on the card. It is scented, but I don’t mind the fragrance. The formula is pretty lightweight, and absorbs quickly. I’ve tried a few cellulite creams before, and some leave your skin tingling, but this one just feels like a normal body moisturizer. (So worst case scenario, it’s a nice smelling body cream – I’m guessing it will take me a few weeks to see if I notice any difference with cellulite).
Verdict: This box has a value of about $84. So far my favorite items are the honey peel, the lip balm, and the Cargo blush. And we’ll see if the Kueshi Anticellulite Booster works for me! I’m happy with the value this month, and the sizes of the products.
