Evologie eSystem Duo Pack Intensive Blemish Serum & Stay Clear Cream – Value $15

Verdict: This box had a great value ($55) and I’m really excited to try the shimmer, lipgloss and the soap. I’ll try the Evologie eSystem too, but I just never get too excited about skincare products! What did you get in your Glossy Box this month?

  1. I like the lip gloss you got. I got the eyeliner instead.

  2. I got pretty much the same box as you, except my nail stickers are gold/silver/black stripes and my lipgloss is a terrible, terrible orangey-copper (it went directly in the trash). I also got a Cult Nails nail polish in a light purpley color that wasn’t even listed on the card. But I’m pretty sure my card was wrong anyway, since it said I should’ve gotten the eyeliner instead of the lipgloss. Overall, I’m happy with this month’s box. The bonus nail polish made up for the ugly lipgloss.

  3. I liked, but didn’t love this February’s Glossybox. I love the soap. It smells wonderful. I got a Missha Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask which I am scared and excited to try all at the same time. I’ve been seeing these products with snail slime so I was curious about them, yet a little grossed out. The powder looks pretty, but I may just use it as an eyeshadow instead of a highlighter. I HATE the design I got for the nail stickers. Someone else who commented said, and I agree, that they look like they are for an 8 year old. Definitely will be giving those away. It’s my 2nd box so I am pleased with Glossybox so far especially compared to Ipsy and Birchbox. I got my first bag and box this month and I was underwhelmed by those two. Hated my Birchbx honestly.

  4. I liked the box but $21 seems a bit much for what you get…any way I love the box it comes in and will be saving it but I don’t know what to do with it either… Maybe use it was a gift box for the next birthday gift I buy?

  5. I use my boxes to store and organize my gigantic nail polish collection…Beauty Army boxes are best…but GlossyBoxes & Birchboxes work too!

  6. You are lucky, Liz, I think most people got pretty bad boxes this month. Mine had a “vital snail slime” face mask made from real snail slime. Horrifying!! And the shimmer powder I got can only be called “dirt” colored. I wish I’d gotten the nail wraps you got, mine look like bad clip art, there are cartoon eyes, fried eggs, ghosts, and unicorns on them. For an 8 year old?
    I used last month’s silver box to make a Valentine’s gift for my guy. I bought sparkly origami paper and silver colored Sharpies and cut the paper into hearts and wrote one thing I love about him on each heart and put them in the box (I decorated the outside of the box too). He loves it. I don’t what I’ll do with the pink boxes yet, but I like Jessi’s idea for the guest bath.

  7. I use my boxes to store memorabilia from trips–tickets, brochures, etc. I’m a big scrapbooker and it’s nice to have same size boxes for different events. I also filled one box with sample sized toiletries and have it in my guest bathroom for visitors. Thought it’d be fun for my guest to “unwrap” some fun little samples for their stay.

    • Oo! Good ideas – thanks!!


  8. I saw your January post, I joined glossybox.So I got my glossybox last week. However,I only like BVLGARI soap. I got wacky blue eyeliner and nail sticker. It was my first box. I may cancel after two month later. I think other countries Glossybox is better than U.S.

  9. I am usually a huge fan of my box every month, was not crazy about this one. I do LOVE the smell of the soap, but I don’t use bar soap 🙂
    Still happy with glossy box though!

  10. I’m glad I cancelled my GlossyBox last month – don’t think I’d use a single product in this one!
