GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – November 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 good too.
We’ve seen MSA readers mention customer service issues they’ve experienced, so make sure to read comments if you are thinking of subscribing.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (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.

And! We have a sneak peek at the box design for December:
Now, onto the items!
Psssst! Instant Dry Shampoo – 1.76 oz (Travel Size) Value $3
This dry shampoo has a nice scent, and I appreciate that it goes on clear – no accidentally giving yourself grey roots!
Lycopene Crema Rinnovante – Size? .5 oz? Value $20?
(There is no size listed on this sample.)
This cream is pretty lightweight and absorbed easily into my skin. It’s also paraben-free and uses natural preservatives and fragrances, so that’s a plus. (The ingredients aren’t listed on the sample, but I found the full list here.)
Borghese Fango Body Refining Polish – .5 oz Value $3
I really liked this scrub! It wasn’t too abrasive but still left skin feeling super smooth, too. And it wasn’t too oily either – it actually created a bit of a creamy lather when I was massaging it into my skin!
De Bruyere Beaute Jumbo Eye Pencil in Bubble 07 – FULL SIZE! Value $17
This eyeshadow stick goes on creamy and is easy to blend. The color has great pigment and shimmer, too. Here it is swatched:
It was super easy to blend – but definitely use a primer with it if you want it to stay in place!
Palmetto Derma Rejuvenating Antioxidant Mask – 10 ml Value $12.40
FYI – I sampled this before thanks to the October 2015 Boxycharm, and it made my skin red for at least 20 minutes after taking it off. If you have sensitive skin, I recommend skipping this sample. (Or doing a small patch test before using it.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $55. There are plenty of items I will use in this box, but aside from the scrub, nothing I’m overly excited about. (Which might just be me – I get a LOT of subscription boxes.) One thing about GlossyBox is that they often send international brands, so it’s a great box if you like trying out new lines you’ve never seen before. However, sometimes I miss that brand recognition of awesome full-size product I already know I will love.
