GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – April 2017
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.
This box was sent to us 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:
Now, onto the items:
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Teeny Tiny – FULL SIZE! Value $6
First, yay for TWO ColourPop products in this box!
This shade is described as a gray plum, and that’s what it looks like in the tube, but on my lips, it read more as a brown shade.
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Monday – FULL SIZE! Value $6
This color is closer to my natural lip shade – a cool pink.
Here are both lippies swatched:
The formulas are great for these liquid lipsticks! As you can see in the swatch, the pigment is fantastic. They also were both long wearing. I found the formula to be a tad drying, but I usually wear a low-shine lip balm over matte lipsticks anyway, so this wasn’t a problem for me.
Doucce Maxlash Volumizing Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $22
This mascara is solid all around. It provided good length, volume, and lash separation. I give it a B+!
Jafra Cosmetics International Paris Et Moi Eau De Parfum – .23 oz Value $7
This scent is described as a “blend of juicy Mara strawberry, romantic rose petal macaron, and elegantly enduring creamy silky woods.”
I’m not much of a perfume wearer, but I kind of like this sweet scent!
BeeKind Shower Gel – 1 oz Value $1.50
Both of these BeeKind formulas are free of parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA, and propylene glycol. And a portion of the proceeds go to supporting honey bee and sustainable pollination research at the University of California at Davis Entomology Department.
BeeKind Body Lotion – 1 oz Value $1.50
Both the body wash and lotion have the same lovely lemon verbena scent. It’s subtle and citrusy – perfect for me.
The lotion formula is lightweight and nongreasy, and the body wash has a good lather, too.
Vasanti BrightenUp! Exfoliating Cleanser – .7 oz Value $5.60
Thanks to Birchbox, I’ve sampled this cleanser a few times before. Fortunately, it’s also a great product, so no repeat issues for me. It’s gentle enough to use 3-5 times a week, and it makes my skin feel incredibly smooth and clean. I can’t say enough good things about this exfoliator/cleanser!
Beauty Shampoo – Mystery Bonus Product
Beauty Conditioner – Mystery Bonus Product
This month GlossyBox is trying something a little different! In addition to the regular samples, subscribers will receive these two bonus mystery products.
This is a “well-known shampoo and conditioner duo that has recently been reformulated.” Subscribers will get a survey on 4/15 to let the brand know what you thought of the items.
They seem like your standard drugstore shampoo and conditioner formulas to me. Fruity scents, and nothing to complain about.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $50. (That’s not counting the shampoo and conditioner bonus mystery products.) While that value is on the low end for GlossyBox, it’s actually one of my favorite boxes from GlossyBox in a while! I love that we got to try two different ColourPop lippies, and the other products are all good fits for me, too.
