GlossyBox Subscription Box Review – April 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 the box during some months. So, there may be some variation between what I review and what you receive.
The Subscription Box: GLOSSYBOX
The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 6-month or annual subscription)

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Leighton Denny Expert Nails Nail Polish in Pillow Talk – FULL SIZE! Value $16
This brand is new to me! It is a deep pink creme with a gloss finish.
Studio 10 Brow Life Perfecting Liner – FULL SIZE! Value $20
This item is one that we know will be in all April Glossyboxes! I think this is my favorite item in the box. It is a highlighter and brow pencil in one. At first I was concerned that the color would be too light for my brows, but it’s one of those brow pencils that you can pretty easily control the color with how much pressure you apply. Here are both shades swatched:
Unani Dermo Defense Face Mask – 3.4 oz Value $18
(I couldn’t find this exact product on the Unani site, so I’m using the info provided by Glossybox.) This mask wasn’t what I was expecting when I tried it out! I usually expect mud masks, but this is a gel mask. It dries while you are wearing it for 10 minutes, but it isn’t a tightening feeling. The good news is that this is designed for sensitive skin, and I had no reactions to it. I thought it was very gentle, and while my skin wasn’t super noticeably different after using it, it did feel cleaner and smoother.
Biossance The Nourisher – 4 ml Value $9.60
I think this is the most lightweight serum I’ve ever sampled! It absorbs quickly, has a faint rose scent, and is free from parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, etc. I really love the formula, so I’ll likely be swapping for more once this runs out, or buying the full-size version.
Norell New York Perfume – 7.5 ml Value $11.25
I love perfume minis! This bottle is so cute! Here is a closer look:
At first, I thought this was a non-name brand perfume, but then I looked it up and found it at Neiman Marcus. They even have a limited edition $1500 bottle version! I like the scent, but I don’t wear perfume that often, so it will probably get more use being on display on my vanity!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $75. I think that’s great for GlossyBox, and this is a great box for me. The eyebrow pencil is my favorite item, but I’ll use everything. And the sizes of all the products are great, too!
