  1. Can you use the differin to spot treat a single pimple that appears?

  2. Has anyone tried to use the Skin Store coupon? I cannot get it accepted.

    • It is definitely not working.

      I added $200 worth of non sale items to my cart just to make sure and it still would not add the code.

      That is annoying.

    • I reach out to CS & they said this:
      You will need to create a new account and then when you place the first order, you will enter the code for the free gift.

      • Thank you so much for posting this! I thought about contacting them but I figured it was just sold out by the time I got my box. It’s a really nice offer, they probably should have explained how to use it.
        It worked out so well for me because there was a calming aftershave spray I was looking for this morning and the skin store happened to have it so I grabbed that and 2 of those velour beauty sponge things. I’m excited about my order and if I like even one gift item I’ll be good.

  3. My box did not contain the daily concepts scrubber. Are there different variations?

    • Yep, the variation for the scrubber is the Differin Gel acne treatment. 😉

    • Yes, if you got 5 items otherwise, you should not get the scrubber.

  4. I LOVE the Differin! I’m in my 50’s and still break out with cycstic acne. This clears it up QUICKLY…so thank you GLOSSYBOX!

  5. I got my box today and don’t like it at all. I would have preferred the facial scrubber instead of the Differin (which is now up for swap along with the palette) I gave the makeup remover wipes to my daughter’s friend and debating on the Avant as I’ve never heard of it. I’ll keep the mask, but even that’s a little weird, lol. Not a great box, but oh well, maybe next month.

    • I’ve been trying the Avant and I do like it. We’ll see in a few weeks but with a rv of $120, it should be good!

      • After using this now for several weeks, I see no difference and nothing special about the Avant. Back to my beloved Tatcha which works wonderfully.

  6. I got the Differin and I have no use for it. I’m not on the swap part of this group so maybe I’ll post it on Poshmark? I know many of you were hoping for it. O well… I most always love and use what I get but this is a skin issue specific product I can’t use. That Avant product showed a rv of $120. Wow. I hope it lives up to it’s cost. I am happy with my Tatcha right now so maybe I’ll gift it.

    • The Differin cream is good for wrinkles, anti-aging its good for cell turnover and it also helps with hyperpigmentation. You don’t have to have any issues to reap benefits from a retinol. Even if it is a synthetic retinol.

      • I won’t use anything on my face at least but my Tatcha. After several months however, skin can become sorta tolerant to a product and it stops working in the maintenance mode. I hope that doesn’t happen with Tatcha. I do know I will never use the Differin though.

      • I did try the Avant after all but after several weeks I went back to Tatcha. It works and I love it!

    • I decided to try the Avant after reading a little about it so we’ll see.

  7. Great box! I got it today!

  8. I am fortunate to have never had acne or breakouts of any kind. I watch my daughter suffer with so many skin issues and nothing seems to help her. This started happening after her hysterectomy (she’s only 30) so I told her to have her hormone levels checked even though they left her tubes intact. Not one single product has worked and believe me, she has tried them all. Only Tatcha has had some good effect.

    • Have her try Jojoba oil – I know it’s an oil but this type of oil helped me when nothing else did.

      • I know she’s tried all the oils. I think she needs to go get an evaluation from a dermatologist to find out exactly what kind of breakouts these are, she has several kinds.

  9. Differin gave me the worse skin of my life when I was on it. Use it cautiously!

    • Thanks for the warning! I might just use it as spot treatment instead of all over the face as the box suggests. I’ve been dealing with breakouts lately and I haven’t found anything that works.

    • You have to get through the retinol uglies and reach the other side.

      • Interesting. I did read to start with caution with a Sunday Riley product bc of the higher levels of retinol. I just read it on Allure online recently. The UK will not allow the same levels we do here and some SR products were not available there.

      • I actually used it for 6 weeks before stopping.

    • The manufacturer (of Differin) states (on the package) that your skin may get worse before the benefits kick in…and that happened with me. But after sticking with it, it helped my skin immensely. I think it’s just a time issue…

    • I read up on it and it did claim you could get worse before you get better with it.

      • So basically the sample isn’t really enough to make your skin get better lol.. just enough to make it worse

      • It’s a good size. Should be enough for 3-4 weeks.

  10. Got my box today and I did get this box variation which is awesome since I wanted the differin. This might be the first month since I can remember that full box spoilers were late. Since recently we’ve only had the two product spoilers. But it’s all good. I’m happy with my box anyway!

  11. I have paid full price for the Differin before, and since I signed up on Black Friday for 12-months it worked out to $13.13/more, so it’s like buying the Differin and getting the rest free.

  12. The other option is Daily Concepts Mini Facial Scrubber according to the booklet (instead of the acne gel)

  13. Have you tried Truly Clear Blemish Bar? I ordered one last year as an add on in my FFF, and fell head over heels! It cleared without drying me out, and they last for a long time. You can find them on Amazon for under $25, and it’s worth every penny

    • Thanks for the info! My daughter has tried so many products to clear her skin with no luck. I’ll get her one of the bars to try.

  14. Wow. This looks like a great box! I wonder what the other variations are.

  15. I received my GB yesterday and am thrilled, delivered earlier than their projected date! 🤗. The Avant deluxe cream is my absolute favorite. The sheet mask will be fun to try. There are literally “slices” so you are able to place them on your neck and décolletage.

  16. This looks like a great box! I kinda wish I was still getting GB but I have way too much product and about 20 of those boxes. They’re too nice to throw away. My son used Differin for almost a year and his acne got worse. I finally took him to my aesthetician and she said to stop the Differin. Now he sees her once a month and his skin has never looked better. I guess it doesn’t work for everyone.

    • I used my boxes I didnt want to throw away as inserts in my vanity drawers, just put the lids underneather them 🙂

      • Thank you for the idea! I’ve used some to store my excess products but when covered and packed away, I forget about what I have and things don’t get used. I need to keep the covers off!

      • I use sticky notes and sort my products by category

      • I’d love to hear how others store and organize their products. I have so many, I forget what I have.

  17. Liz, Do you know if the Deluxe Hyaluronic Acid Vivifying Face & Eye Night Cream is a variant item or will it be in all boxes? Also do they give the size? I’d love to try that but not resubbing if it’s a variant.

    • It’s supposed to be in all the boxes from the Glossybox website spoilers.

  18. This box is the perfect example as to why I love Glossybox. We get a nice mix of make-up, hair care, skincare and other miscellaneous beauty items. The Avant cream is full size, retailing at $98 British pounds, which translates to $125.00 U.S. Dollars. That’s a great value for the price of the box. I really enjoy Glossybox.

  19. Looks like a nice box. Always love their their boxes they use.

  20. I’m almost out of my Differen cream so hope this is what I get

  21. I hope the get this variation specifically for the Differin. I’ve been dealing with breakouts lately and nothing has worked so far.
