GlossyBox Review June 2013 & Promo Code (USA)
For the June 2013 box, GlossyBox teamed up with Dallas Shaw to create the American Beauty Box. Dallas Shaw picked out some of her favorite beauty products to share with GlossyBox subscribers. I’m very happy with the items she selected for this box and the variety – a perfect mix of makeup, hair, and fragrance products!
Dallas Shaw also did the illustrations for the packaging. GlossyBox already has some of the most beautiful packaging for their regular boxes, but this box was even more special!
Each box comes with an information card describing the brands and products selected for that month. GlossyBoxes usually have some variation. In this case, the SpaRitual nail polish colors will vary, and you also will receive one of a variety of Philip B. hair care products.
The Box: GLOSSYBOX
The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription!)
The Products: Deluxe and full size beauty products.
I normally am not very happy with fragrance samples in subscription boxes, but I love that they included every sample from Oscar de la Renta’s new Essential Luxuries collection. I also love the packaging of this sample set. So far, I think my favorite scent is Mi Corazon.
SpaRitual Nail Polish in Days of Wine and Roses – FULL SIZE! Value $12
tarte Complexion Brightening Lipstick – FULL SIZE! Value $14.50
I love SpaRitual nail polishes! (I became a fan after receiving two adorable minis in my December Yuzen box). They are 4-free and vegan, and the color goes on really well too!
I’m always intrigued by lipsticks/lip balms that combine colors like this. Normally I’m not much of a lipstick wearer, but I’ll have to try this one!
c. Booth Honey Almond Nourishing Dry Oil Mist – 2 oz Value $4
Philip B Lovin’ Leave-in Conditioner – 2 oz Value $8
I’m torn on how I feel about this c. Booth dry oil mist. I love the application and how it doesn’t leave skin greasy at all, and I’m also a big fan of products that are free from parabens and sulfates! I’m just not sure if I love the scent though, and I wish they didn’t use artificial colors to make it orange!
This Philip B. leave-in conditioner will last a while, and it’s paraben and phthalate free!
Verdict: This box is definitely a win for me – I love when they include full-size makeup products in GlossyBoxes – I think those tend to be my favorite months! Plus every item in this box is either full size or has enough product for multiple uses, so I’m very happy with the value. What did you think of the June GlossyBox?
