GlossyBox Subscription Box Review – August 2015
GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. They have the best packaging in the business, their products are usually deluxe-size or full size, and the value is usually really good too. The only issue with this box seems to be the late shipping – I would recommend just keeping that in mind and setting your expectations accordingly if you sign up for this box.
GlossyBox sent us this box early for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
GlamGlow YouthCleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser – 1 oz Value $7.80
This is a product that all subscribers will receive this month. The cleanser goes on to dry skin (the formula looks similar to their mask product), then you add a little water to create a lather. (It wasn’t too foaming for me – more like it turned into a creamy cleanser). I really like how soft my skin felt after using this. It’s gentle, but also has some grit to it, so I think that helps with exfoliation.
MANNA KADAR Cosmetics Lash Primer – .14 oz Value $11
I tried this primer out with my tarte mascara and I’m pleased with the results. The one thing I noticed was slightly better lash definition. Not enough of a difference for me to buy more once this tube runs out though.
Lollipops Paris Malicieuse Lip Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $5.50
(Flavors will vary for subscribers). This is a clear lip balm with a sweet/dessert-like flavor. I like the formula – it adds a little bit of shine and is very moisturizing. My only issue is finding the ingredients online. (They aren’t listed on the package, and the Lollipops site is currently down).
SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in Fall in Love – FULL SIZE! Value $12
(Subscribers will receive one of eight shades).
I love this nail polish brand (it’s vegan, ingredient-conscious, and the formula is great). This color is a perfect autumn shade too – I can’t believe it’s almost September!
POP Beauty Kajal Pen in Sooty Black – FULL SIZE! Value $10
This liner is super pigmented and goes on matte. It glides on easily too. Here is a swatch:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $46. I think the value is good, and I like the sizes of all the products included. My favorite discovery in this box is definitely the GlamGlow cleanser, and I love my shade of nail polish. I like the eyeliner, but since I receive so many black eyeliners in subscription boxes, it isn’t the most exciting item for me.
