GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – February 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.
The packaging is amazing this month!
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 Subscription 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.

Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
GlamGlow ThirstyCleanse – 1 oz Value $14
(Good to know for swaps – comes with inner foil seal)
I love GlamGlow products! (And GlossyBox usually includes one every few months, so that’s a win!) This cleaner is mud-to-foam, but it isn’t a super sudsing cleanser. The formula is paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free, and I found it to be very gentle too – no drying out my skin. My favorite part is the scent – it smells fresh and beachy!
Etre Belle Cosmetics Golden Skin Roll-On Caviar Eye Gel – 10 ml Value $22
This roll-on eye gel is very cooling and refreshing! If I could change anything about it, I would prefer for it to be fragrance-free, but fortunately, the scent isn’t too strong.
Based on the info card, it looks like subscribers will receive different scent variations of this mask. I’ve tried this mask before (I think thanks to Birchbox), and it works well. I like that is paraben free, too! The only thing I’m not crazy about is that you have to wear the mask for 15-20 minutes – I’m bad at waiting for results!
(I believe all subscribers will receive the same shade).
This lipstick is highly pigmented with a satin matte finish. I like the tone of this berry red for my skin tone:
The packaging is fun too!
Benefit The Porefessional – 3 ml Value $4.80
This is a classic Benefit product that I’ve been using for years. In fact, I think it was one of the first makeup products I tried outside of the standard mascara, concealer and lip gloss that made me realize, “makeup is magic!” It is a primer/pore concealer combo and does the job of filling in pores really well for me!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $67. I think that’s a good value for a $21 box. I think they did a good mix of makeup and indulgent skincare this month. Plus the packaging this month just makes it all a little better!
