GlossyBox Mother’s Day Limited Edition Box Review
GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. In addition to their subscription, they occasionally do Limited Edtion one-time-purchase boxes. This is a review of their most recent Pink Diamond Limited Edition box.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. It looks like this box was sent to us for review purposes, and the box I bought myself hasn’t arrived yet. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
UPDATE: I received 2 of these boxes a day apart. (I didn’t know if GlossyBox would be sending me one, so I bought one to be safe the day they went on sale.) The boxes were identical, so I assumed one was the one I bought, and one was the one GlossyBox had sent to me. Now it appears that both were sent from GlossyBox and I still have the one I purchased on the way.
What this means: 1. According to GlossyBox’s Instagram, paying subscribers will get the full-size Vichy. (I think this is the first case of reverse-blogger box I’ve seen!) 2. I have extra boxes so look for a giveaway soon!
As always, with Glossybox, the packaging is just gorgeous! I love the gold foil detail of the lines.

NCLA Nail Polish in Pink Champagne – FULL SIZE! Value $16
First, I love the name of this polish!
The color is a shimmery, cotton candy pink, with high shine. I got full coverage in two coats. Here it is on:
I really love this shade! It feels bright, fresh, and perfect for warmer weather!
This is a new brand to me, and I love discovering new natural/organic beauty lines, so I was excited to try it out!
The color is a warm brown, and it matched my brows well. Like most eyebrow pencils, you can control the color depth by how much pressure you use. (Swatched in lower photo.)
(Colors will vary.)
I love Nudestix lip crayons! The crayons are a lip liner and lipstick in one, and the formulas are always so creamy! (You could also use this as a cheek tint – the whole concept behind this line is multi-use products that are easy, fast, and travel well.)
The color is a deep merlot red. My go to Nudestix color is a little more neutral/light pink, so it was nice to try out a bolder look at a deep discount.
(Swatched in lower photo.)
This pressed powder veil looks shimmery in the pan, but it is more like a setting powder than a highlighter when you apply it. With a sweep of the brush over my skin I really couldn’t notice any highlight shimmer – this is definitely for a subtle look.
But, good news, I like it as a setting powder! Plus the Josie Maran line uses natural and organic ingredients, too.
I swatched it multiple times below the eyebrow definer and lip crayon so you can see the pigment/shimmer:
ADORAtherapy Chakra Boost – Value $30
(Scents will vary.)
What a nice alternative to your standard perfume sample in a box! This roll on scent is made with only natural and organic ingredients. (It’s vegan and made in the USA, too!)
This scent is a blend of lavender, cedarwood, patchouli, ginger, clove, and sandalwood.
VICHY Merial 89 Fortifying and Plumping Daily Booster – 30 ml Value $18
(UPDATE: FYI – GlossyBox messaged this box as having 6 full-size items, but this product is smaller than the 1.7 full size.)
UPDATE 2: According to GlossyBox’s instagram, paying customers will receive the full-size 1.7 oz version!
This moisturizer is so unique! It has a gel-like consistency, and it’s made with Mineralizing Water with Hyaluronic Acid to “fortify skin and make it more resistant to visible aging caused by pollution, stress to skin.”
The formula absorbed almost instantly, and my skin felt more hydrated as well. This seems like a perfect moisturizer for warmer weather!
Verdict: This is one of my favorite Limited Edition GlossyBoxes ever! Great brands, and a good mix of interesting new-to-me products, too! This box has a value of about $148 – amazing for a $40 box. (Or $35 if you are a subscriber.)
