GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – October 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).
This is a specially designed French inspired Glossybox, and it is gorgeous!
Look at the inside of the lid! Even the side of the box is beautiful:
This box is definitely a keeper! Now on to the actual items!

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Aqua Universalis – 5 ml Value $13
Wow – this is an expensive perfume! ($185 for the 2.4 oz version). It’s a light scent (good for me), and I love that this perfume mini has a full-size perfume sprayer!
NUXE Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Rose Petals – FULL SIZE! Value $26
(Good to know for swaps – this comes sealed in plastic).
The exfoliating particles in this formula are made from ground Lychee stones and ground Walnut shells! The scent isn’t too rosy for me, it has more of a “clean” smell, and I liked how smooth it made my skin feel after using it. The exfoliating particles aren’t as mirco as they are in some other exfoliating cleansers, but this one is designed to be used for people with sensitive skin, so I think it is still pretty gentle.
PHYTO Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray – 1 oz Value $7
(FYI – Sephora has a 1.7 oz version of this listed for $12, and when I look at the picture of the 1.7 oz version the label says 1 oz, so the value of this might actually be $12). This is a leave-in spray that prepares your hair for heated tools, and also helps with detangling. I like how lightweight the formula is and the scent is subtle as well. I’ve liked all the Phyto products I’ve sampled, and this one is another I can add to that list!
De Bruyere Paris Red Lipgloss – FULL SIZE! Value $17.50
I’m struggling to find this exact lipgloss for sale online, so I haven’t found the ingredients yet. (Neither the lip gloss or nail polish include an ingredient list on the packaging – if you find the info, please let me know!)
This lipgloss adds a lot of pigment, and a good amount of shine without any stickiness – all good in my book! The color looks red in the tube, but comes out almost bright coral. (Swatched below).
LOLLIPOPS Paris Nail Polish in Voyage a Paris – FULL SIZE! Value $10
I have to say, I love the bright red makeup products tying in with the packaging. And a classic red nail polish seems like a good fit for a French beauty box too!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $73. I think that’s great for a $21 beauty box, and I’m very happy with the sizes of the items this month. And of course, the packaging made this box extra fun to open!
