GlossyBox Subscription Box Review – January 2018
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)
The Products: Deluxe and full-size beauty products.

Each box comes with a fold-out card detailing the items included:
Now, on to the items!
Buxom Big Tease Plumping Mascara – 2 ml Value $2.82
I tried this thanks to the Holiday Limited Edition GlossyBox, and I love the formula. This mascara hits all the marks for me: great length, volume, lash separation!
Dr. Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil – 15ml Value $29.25
This facial oil is advertised as 100% natural, so I was disappointed to see that parfum and Red 33 (a synthetic dye) were listed in the ingredients. (I wish skincare companies wouldn’t add unnecessary dyes to their products, but that’s probably just my pet peeve.)
Those ingredient issues aside, I loved the feel of this oil. It’s SO lightweight, smells sweet, and absorbs quickly.
Theorie Marula Oil – 10 ml Value $2.60
This hair oil is ingredient-conscious and smells fab! It’s designed to help protect your hair from heat tools and add shine. You can apply it to damp or dry hair, and stick to the ends of your hair. I found the formula to be lightweight (it didn’t weigh my hair down at all), and I noticed a very subtle extra shine.
Steve Laurant Beauty Lip Tint in Dusty Rose – FULL SIZE! Value $22
This is a creamy lip tint in a very wearable pink shade for my skin tone. Personally, I prefer my lip products in tubes for easy/cleaner application, but this also worked well as a cream blush – very easy to blend!
Here it is swatched:
Lumene Lahde Purity Dew Drops – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $14.99
This eye gel is fragrance-free and designed to help reduce the appearance of puffiness and under-eye circles. I found the formula to be gentle and refreshing. (Plus, yay for full-size skincare!)
Velvet Eyewear Bonus Code
FYI – this says it is a gift card and it has what appears to be a unique card number, but the code you enter is a generic coupon code to save $25. There is no expiration date listed, and it has no cash value.
I found that they have box sets (3 sunglasses for $99), so with the coupon, it works out to a little under $25 a pair. (And shipping is free.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $71.66. I think the value is good, and I’m impressed with the sizes of the products throughout. Between this box and December, I’m hoping this is a new GlossyBox trend!
