GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – January 2016
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).
FYI – GlossyBox sends out multiple variations of boxes each month – so not every subscriber will receive every item in this box.

The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription)

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Emite Makeup Diamond Heart Base Primer – FULL SIZE! Value $29
This primer is really full, so be careful opening it! The formula has a bit of a peach tint, but goes on sheer. I like it (but to be fair, pretty much all primers are good in my book!)
Royal Apothic Moisturizing Body Cream in Venetian Grove – 1.25 oz Value $4.70
(Scents will vary for subscribers. Good to know for swaps – inner foil seal).
I like the other Royal Apothic products I’ve sampled through boxes, so I was excited to try this one. The formula itself is lightweight and absorbs quickly, so A+ there! It is a little too fragranced for me, though. If you prefer lightly or non-scented items, I would recommend gifting/swapping this.
-417 Foot Nourishing Cream – 1.7 oz Value $9
Wow – a foot cream that isn’t minty scented! The formula is pretty lightweight for a foot cream, and I like the scent – it is light and refreshing!
Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment – 2 oz? Value $1.50
This product is designed to help remove dulling product buildup and enhance shine. It’s free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic colors or fragrances, and it is color safe too. (Plus it smells like lemons!)
MeMeMe Lip Glide in Playful Peach – FULL SIZE! Value $12.50
This might be my favorite item in the box. It has a good amount of pigment but still goes on somewhat sheer. And the finish is matte BUT! the formula isn’t drying! Here it is swatched:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $56.70. I think that’s a good value for a $21 box. I think they did a good mix of makeup, body, and hair care products this month too. (Plus I appreciate that the makeup items are both full size!)
