This is probably my favorite subscription box packaging ever, so I took a lot of unboxing pictures!

A little different than the usual monthly GlossyBox card, this fold out sheet details every item in the box.

HD Brows Grow Baby Grow – Value $45

I don’t think I need thicker brows, so I’ll probably pass this item along to a friend.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush – Travel Size Value $2.30

Nails Inc. Kensington Caviar Top Coat – Value $18.20

Me Me Me Cosmetics Beat the Blues Skin Illuminator in Pearl Pink – Value $8.30

I’m pretty happy with all of these items – I can always use dry shampoo and nail polish top coat, plus this skin illuminator reminds me of Benefit High Beam!

Steam Cream All-In-One Natural Moisturizer for Face, Body & Hands – Value $19.50

Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream – Value $26

I really like the scent of both of these lotions – I think the Steam Cream is my favorite though!

Verdict: I paid $40 for this box and received over $140 worth of cosmetic products from Britain – I love it! I’ll use almost all of the products, and I will definitely be reusing this box! Were you lucky enough to get a Best of Britain box before they sold out? What did you think of the box?

  1. I tried to order one of these boxes but they sold out fast! I am a sucker for packaging and this box is the cutest yet, thanks for so many pics. Enjoy all the British goodies πŸ™‚


  2. You can use grow baby grow on lashes as well if that helps :).

    Steam Cream is AMAZING – I love having a tin around and use it sparingly but it smells amazing.

  3. I love the Union Jack box design and was soo bummed to missed out on this sale! If anyone isn’t going to reuse their box, I’ll gladly take it off your hands! πŸ™‚

  4. I need the thicker HD Brows Grow Baby Grow to grow my eyebrows back, would you like to trade for something in my glossybox for September once I get it, email me at I’ll email you my cell.

  5. That makeup bag is gorgeous! Can’t believe I missed this one. Hope they do another!

  6. I got mine! I think my favorite item was the box itself. The grow baby grow says it also works for eyelashes which I lack.

  7. I couldn’t even finish a day of work before I saw that it was sold out. Oh well, I hope they do another “Best of” box. Maybe they can do products from other countries. Hopefully, I’ll be able to order that one in time. This one looks cool.

  8. What a neat box! I will totally be on the lookout for the next limited edition GlossyBox!

  9. I just got mine yesterday and I love it! Not real sure how you use the skin illuminator but I’m looking forward to finding out. My favorite products are the steamcream and the lipstick…I will use everything except the grow baby grow…I have a ton of brows! I’ll probably gift it as well!

    • Senny, you could do a number of things with the illuminator. I use mine to top my bronzer, blush, highlighter “sandwich”. You can also use on your brow bone under your brows and in the valley of your lips, just a little dab. If you are young and like a dewey complexion, mix a drop of highlighter into your matte BB cream, foundation or moisturizer and apply as usual. Have fun with it, I missed out on ordering this box-it sold out lightening fast!

      • Thanks! Those are all great ideas and have been trying them…so far I love it! this is why sub boxes are so fun…getting to try new things you haven’t tried before!

  10. LUCKY DUCK!!

    Even the actual box itself is cute!! I was SO BUMMED these sold out SO FREAKING FAST!!
