  1. I got two tubes of some foaming cleanser instead of the perfume – boo! Would have loved that and SO bummed about no eyelashes because I really wanted to try them!

    • Me too.. I am disappointed with my box this month 🙁

    • I got the bitty little cleansers too ($1.15 combined value!). I posted a comment about my whole December Glossybox experience here earlier today, but it appears to have been deleted. A shame – it was a good comment.

  2. The sad thing is I just know I would get 2-3 of the cheaper less popular items rather than the ones I want. That’s just how life works for me lol

  3. I am angry too – and If I do not get the lashes or the pads – I am unsubbing from Glossy Bob! They will be one of the many to hit the dust with me at the end of the year. I am also leaving Birch Box and Ipsy. I am thinking about getting rid of Sephora Play also. I have had it with the people that do not even pay for their subs getting the best stuff. Boxy Charm does to do that and rumor has it the Cohorted Box from the UK will be here sometime in 2017! I am so excited for that box!!!! It is HIGH END – FULL SIZED – Things like Bobby Brown, Chanel etc. I LIVE FOR THIS BOX! and want it so badly, which is why I am getting rid of the ones that I think are subpar. I will keep you posted as I hear more – I stalk the company so they send me e-mails… LOL

  4. So this is my last month from last years groupon deal. I went to use my glossy dots and I am not allowed because it isn’t a subscription and it was a voucher. What a bunch of you know what. I spent the money on the annual voucher and the time doing the reviews I should get to use them.

    • Just email customer service and they’ll take care of it for you – they’ve always been very helpful with me!

      • I got a tip this week to message them on Facebook and did. I have never gotten an email response but have received good customer service via FB and phone.

        • Same here…Talk to them on Facebook…People notice and the company seems to respond much more quickly.

  5. I used my points for a second box this month so fingers crossed! I’m a little worried since my last couple boxes I ordered a second box with points, both boxes had identical items even though we all know there are variations. I liked this sub because I thought we all got the same just maybe in different colors. I left Ipsy after 4 years because I got tired of getting the cheaper set of items because they seemed to want to keep monthly people happy and didn’t put as much effort into annual subs.

  6. Looks like the GB branded lashes and hand warmers are just for the specials (presumably bloggers and YouTube/Instagram people).

    I like the brush, everything else I could take or leave.

    • Good business and customer relations etiquette should tell GB that to release a photograph flaunting the extras that bloggers and reviewers receive is what kindergarteners call “mean.”

      • Agreed. But I believe the above picture wasn’t released by GB, but is taken from the instagram of one of specials in question. It looks like this trend is the new norm for Glossy – a month or 2 ago there was a GB branded sleep mask included in the box sent out early to the instagram elite.

  7. I never get these good items. If I don’t get that perfume, I’m done with glossybox!

    • I received my box today (I’m in the UK) and the only item I received similar to the above was the MDMflow lippie. Instead of a MeMeMe liquid highlighter, I got an Essence powder palette (which retails at £3). No blending brush. Instead I got an eyebrow powder type thing (rrp- £4.19) which will allow me to draw on individual strands of eyebrow (?). No perfume, no lashes, no eye mask (I guess I’m not one of the cool kids). But I did receive a Revlon nail varnish (rrp- £6.49) and a Lipcote lipstick sealer (rrp- £3.99). All in all, I am very disappointed because a quick calculation tells me the value of my box is around £35 (only because the MDMflow lipstick retails at £18). And tbh I wouldn’t have spent any money on these unnecessary items in a drugstore.

    • I got my box today and it was actually a good one. I got the perfume, the lipstick (love the color), the blending brush, the MeMeMe illuminator, and Vichy Laboratories Liftactiv Retinol Ha Eyes.

  8. I have been with GlossyBox for a few years now and I’m happy with them. The December box is a pretty one. I’m excited with the lipstick color. I’m into earth-tone, natural-looking lipstick colors. So, this one would get a lot of use.
    I have stayed with GlossyBox for as long as I have because I am the type of person that finds use for everything. When I receive things from them that I can’t use, I always make gift bags or boxes for friends. I haven’t spent money on my girlfriends birthday or Christmas gifts in years. They love it. But, there is always something in each box that I keep for myself. Christmas is right around the corner, so all of my friends are already taken care of.

  9. I read on another site that the lashes and round glossybox things were gifts for some of the bloggers/ subscribers and weren’t going to be included in the December box not sure if that is true or not?

  10. Omg omg I LOVE this box…and I don’t usually say that with Glossybox. But the concern is, now I’ll be disappointed if I get awful variations.

    I would love a sleep mask, need that adorable perfume, definitely want to try lashes, want to try mdmflow (for the B.O.M.B. challenge), and I always like brushes.

    Urgh watch me end up getting none of that lol

    • Alice,
      I cancelled and just re subscribed for the same reason. I hope I get some of the nice items too, if not I’ll have to cancel again. Lol

  11. Is it wrong that I’m angry? I spent months subscribed and was hoping the boxes would get better, but ultimately canceled after it was meh. Now i actually like everything in this box and would have to resub to get it, but since it’s variant…I might not get all of it. I’m kind of annoyed cuz I only liked 1-3 tops of the items I got over each sub box and now that I’m not subbed they drag out the good stuff

  12. What are the glossybox branded circle things in the middle of the box? They look like either reusable hand warmers or cutlets…

    • I am wondering the same thing…

    • I think those are the little eye gel packs…reusable kind?

      • My first thoughts were nipple pasties! Lol

  13. I was waiting for the best deal that everyone was talking about….. Still waittttiiinnnngggggg. Maybe they are waiting for all the other boxes have their deals and then they will have a better deal come December when more eyes will be MSA shopping/reading for the newest deal and Glossybox won’t be so over shadowed by so many other boxes and their sweet deals.
    That sounded better in my head. I got only one box for free by them back in November and that was my first. Am I the only one here that loved the box more then a few of my items in my box…. Ha ha of course I’m not! I want the December box. 💖

  14. The box looks beautiful! This is the third month in a row with a celebrity fragrance – I like it! Gives me a chance to try them all. I prefer spray over these rollerballs though. Lipstick is a great color, thankfully NOT another red. I’m excited!

  15. Kinda a bleh box for me as well. I would not know what to do with those lashes if my life depended on it. Do they come with some sort of glue or adhesive? Boring color on the lipstick and if that illuminator is a highlighter then that is a miss as well. Usually Glossy is a better box than what is shown, so maybe this is just one variation and I will get another. Oh well, I guess they all can’t be winners.

  16. Yikes! Hoping NOT to get the perfume!! This will be my last Glossybox, earned with glossydots after a year-long sub.

  17. I just subbed another annual again. I love the box itself, looks so luxe and pretty. That said, that perfume mini is gorgeous! I love perfume minis anyways but that one is extra gorgeous. I’m so excited. I usually get the best variations so I’m optimistic. I hope glossybox starts focusing on quality instead of cheap subs.

  18. I’m always pretty happy with Glossybox. Looks like December is no different if I don’t get cheaper subs.

  19. oh man i’m a sucker for perfume… but yeah i probably wouldn’t get that variation so i guess i won’t bite.

  20. Random question for readers: I got a phone call last night from Glossybox but wasn’t available to talk, so instead of saying they’d call back another time, they just said, “OK, have a good night.” It was weird. My sub ended in October (Gilt City), and I got the November box with my Glossydots. I wonder if they are making an effort to get people to resub.

    • Sorry, forgot the question! My question is, did anyone else get a call? If so, what was that about?

      • I got the call – they left a message. Something about my deal expired and letting me know in case I want to get the next box. It was kind of a garbled message.

        • Thanks for replying. I mean, nice of them to call, the lady on the phone was very nice, but that seems over the top to try to get me to resub. They must need the business.

          • I got the call too. They were offering $50 off an annual subscription.

    • I got it today too. Had the same deal as you with Nov being my glossydots reward. She offered me a deal for annual sub for 160$ (13.3$ per month) if I resub until tomorrow at midnight. I’m not interested, but I guess it’s nice of them to make personalized calls like that.

  21. I can’t wait for this box it all looks great! Last months box was a huge win for me with the full size cleansing oil and all the rest. I had been meh about a few of the previous boxes but this looks great.

  22. 12 of the eye masks are $399.95! So one mask is $33.33! The only thing is, if I love the mask, I can’t afford to buy any, lol.

    • Lisa, I saw the price of those masks and was so surprised! I love receiving items that I would never have been able to try in my ordinary life. Lol

  23. I would use the mask but I have too much perfume and I have work fake lashes only once in my life on Halloween. The box is pretty but I’m glad I let my sub run out.

  24. My sub ran out last month and this is not convincing me to go back.

    That lipstick is not an exciting color for me, I loathe false lashes, and I have like 20 eye masks of a similar sort that I never remember to use. The perfume bottle is cute but not cute enough to get me to sign up again, even though I do like interesting perfume bottles.

    • I could have written your post. The box itself is really pretty, but I’m not one to hang on to that kind of thing for very long.

      • Some people who visit this site would be horrified to know I don’t keep boxes like that at all. They immediately go to recycling. (But then I get SO MANY subscription boxes I would run out of room in an instant.)

        • I donate mine but only because I know a teacher that loves to let students decorate them for classroom storage. I had so many boxes from birchbox, sample society and glossybox that I had couldn’t save them without feeling it was a gateway to hoarding. I keep the prettier boxes as storage for legos or holiday decorations since they are sturdy.

          • OMG Lego storage!!! That’s such a great idea! Especially since each box could be its own Lego kit. Just tape a cutout of the Lego box to the top so that you know which kit it is. Thanks for this!

  25. I was about to re-subscribe, but then I remembered that there are variations and I always get the products with the low value. I can’t trust Glossybox. 🙁

    • Biggest issue I had with glossybox. They advertise a great-looking box, but sub out mediocre, cheap alternatives.

      • I have been on the receiving end of that scenario one too many times. Which is exactly why I will not be ordering another.

    • Well darn I don’t know how I forgot about the box variety,and yes I always get the low end one.I wanted that perfume mini

  26. This looks like a fun one! I was actually really happy with the November box I recieved but I think I received a product that not many other people did-a full size cleansing oil so it was a big win for me.

    • I received that oil too and love it!

    • Was it the Biossance oil? I received that and love it.

      • Yes! It was such a nice surprise!

    • I got the lycopene cream that was only an 1/8th full and it was only about a quarter ounce anyway. My replacement options were a mini mascara, an old moisturizer from 2015 that was only about a quarter full but supposed to be one ounce and a nail polish. There were no hero items or full size in my box and nothing worth my $21. I am using my last points for December box which still looks cheap and light and then I’m finished. I’ve been loyal and paying full price but I can’t even get a lipstick color that looks good on me. What happened to you Glossybox?

  27. Once. Again the box looks light, kind of like the November box. At least I get it free with glossydots. I’m guessing the only full sizes will be the brush, lippie and eyelashes. What happened to the good boxes with full sizes of skin care. The perfume sounds like something I would wear for once. I hope I’m wrong and we get full size everything including the eye mask.

  28. Hmm looks like a very unique box

  29. I was so tempted to subscribe and now I’m so glad I didn’t. The only thing i would use is the lipstick.

  30. Oh I am so excited for this box!

    • Me Too!!!
