GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – June 2016
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.
Sorry, I’m super late on getting this June review posted!
GlossyBox sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI: GlossyBox sends out multiple variations of the box during some months. So, there may be some variation between what I review and what you receive.
The Subscription Box: GLOSSYBOX
The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 6-month or annual subscription)
The Products: Deluxe and full-size beauty products.

Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included. This month’s box is a collaboration with the Tony Awards and they included lots of “red carpet ready” beauty items.
Caolion Premium Hot & Cold Pore Pack Duo – .2 oz Value $3.40
This mask is a two part set:
The Blackhead Steam Pore Pack is an exfoliant and it has a slight warming sensation. You massage it into your skin for 1-2 minutes, then leave it on for 5-10 minutes. I found this to be gentle but also super-effective. My skin felt so clean and my pores seemed to be visibly clearer after removing it.
I would recommend a moisturizer after use, though, as it was slightly drying.
The Pore Original Pack is the cooling mask. You apply it (no need to massage it into your skin) and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. This is the mask that I could really feel “working.” It made my skin tingle and feel cool even a few minutes after I removed it!
Again, I was seriously impressed with how clean my pores looked after I removed it. I will definitely need to buy this mask set in the full-size!
This is a waterproof mascara, and it provides a nice natural look with excellent lash separation. Personally, I wanted a mascara with a lot of volume and length in a red carpet-inspired beauty box, and this didn’t provide that. But, if you want a mascara that adds just a little length and volume and stays put all day, this would be great.
(Colors will vary)
My first Kylie Jenner beauty product! (Has any tried her lip kits, yet?)
I like the satin matte finish of this polish, but this color might be a little too bold for my tastes. Here it is on:
Sebastian Professional Dark Oil – 2 ml Value $1
This is a thick hair oil, and a little goes a long way, so this tiny sample should actually last for a few uses! It added shine, fragrance and diminished frizz – I’m happy!
Sebastian Professional Sharper Fierce Finishing Hairspray – 1.5 oz Value $2.70
This is a ultra-firm finishing hair spray, so I think it is a perfect fit for the theme of the box. I tried it out and it held my hair in place well, plus it didn’t have that strong hairspray smell which is an added bonus for me.
LASplash Lip Gloss in Red Carpet – FULL SIZE! Value $18
(Colors will vary)
I couldn’t find this exact variation of LASplash lipgloss online, and the card says this is a GlossyBox exclusive, so that value listed is from the info card.
(To be honest, when I first saw the branding/packaging, I assumed this was a less-expensive drug store brand, so the value listed surprised me.)
Here it is swatched:
This is a bold, high-pigment, high-shine lip gloss. The formula is a little sticky, and the color is a bit too bold for me, but again I see how this fits well with the theme of the box.
TanTowel Half Body Classic – (2) Value $5 total
I’ve sampled these before, and out of all the self-tanners I’ve tried, they come out somewhere in the middle. For my skintone, so far my favorite self tanner has been from tarte.
(I’m glad they included enough towelettes for a full-body, though!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $52. I think the value is pretty good, but some of the items were a miss for me this month. The heating and cooling pore masks were an amazing discovery though, so to me this box is worth it just for that item alone!
What do you think of the June 2016 GlossyBox?
