Glossy Box Beauty Subscription Review - August 2012

Senna Mineral Eyes Shadow Trio – FULL SIZE! Value $24

Love when full sized items are more than the cost of the box!

Blushed Fragrance Packet – Value $1

I don’t like most fragrances so it’s no surprise that this one wasn’t for me.

Figs & Rouge Lip, Face & Body Balm – FULL SIZE Value $6

Alessandro International Pedix Heel Rescue Balm – 30 mL Value $5.55

I love both of these items so much! The Figs & Rouge balm is 100% organic and smells divine. I’ve been using it on my hands and it’s made them incredibly soft.

The Heel Rescue Balm is a big win for me as well. When it comes to my beauty routine, the last thing I usually think about it my feet, so this balm was a nice reminder. More importantly, it works really well. It made my skin very soft, but also dried relatively quickly.

Sebastian Color Ignite Shampoo – 1.7 oz Value $3

Sebastian Color Ignite Conditioner – 1.65 oz Value $4

The shampoo has sulfate in the ingredients (which I avoid in haircare products) so I wasn’t able to sample it. The conditioner was sulfate-free though and I really liked it. The texture is more like a mouse than a typical conditioner. (The instructions said to use a tennis ball size amount).

Verdict: I love Glossy Box! My two favorite products in the box (the balms) are both international brands, so I never would have learned about them or gotten the opportunity to try them if it wasn’t for Glossy Box. Also, the value of the items I received in the box was over double the cost of the box. (About $44 worth of items, box cost: $21 or $16.67 a month with the BEAUTYX3 for 3 month subscription).

  1. I got the gloss instead of the eyeshadow, which was disappointing. but my overall favorite item was definitely the heel balm! I wouldn’t have found that brand either if it wasn’t for Glossybox
