GlossyBox Subscription Box Review – February 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!
John Masters Organics Geranium & Grapefruit Body Milk – 2 oz Retail Value $6.50
This lotion is super lightweight (it absorbs almost instantly), and provides a light amount of moisture. My favorite part is the scent – I love natural citrus scents, and this one is perfect.
John Masters Organics Geranium & Grapefruit Body Wash – 2 oz Retail Value $6.50
And we get a matching body wash! Again, the scent is fab and light!
Royal Apothic Scrubbie Exfoliating Lip Treatment – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $14
This lip scrub is made with natural sugars and it has a sweet, fruity flavor. It’s a bit oily, too, so it will leave your lips moisturized even after you wipe it off.
Doucce Lip Definer Pencil in 471 – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $20
(FYI – subscribers will either receive a gloss, lip liner, or crayon from Doucce. Colors will vary.)
I lucked out with this color – the mauve is very close to my everyday lip color, just a little warmer. Here it is swatched:
The pigment is great and the pencil has a matte finish. The staying power isn’t great, but usually, it isn’t with lip liner pencils.
JJ Young Mud Mask Sheet – Retail Value $5
(FYI – Masks will vary)
This is not your typical sheet mask! It’s a 3D mud mask – you remove the mud residue after the mask has dried (about 20 minutes). I like the idea, but after trying it, I realized a regular mud mask is more convenient for me because I can apply it just to the areas I want, and it’s actually less messy than this mask!
Pick a Pinch Slant Tweezer – Retail Value Listed $20
(Subscribers will either receive a brush or tweezers.)
I’m always a bit skeptical of tweezers from brands I don’t know, but these were pretty good. Not as good as my Tweezerman tweezers, but perfectly fine as a backup pair.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $72. I think the value is good, and I’ll use most of the products in the box. It’s not a bad box, but it’s not as exciting as the January or December boxes in my opinion. (The John Masters Organics brand in this box was great, though!)
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes!
