GlossyBox June 2019 Review
Each box comes with a fold-out card detailing the items included.
Before we get started, I want to give you a heads up that I am not sure yet if there will be variations in this box, or if all subscribers will receive the exact same items.
Wanna see what’s inside the box? Let’s go!
Morgan Taylor Nail Polish in ‘All the Queen’s Bling’, 15 ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $9.49
Good to know: Nail Polish colors will vary from box to box.
I tend to use only really boring nail colors. I literally get the same color each time I get them done! I do tend t use brighter colors on my toes, but sometimes I feel like certain colors are just wasted on me. Not so with this lovely lilac! What doesn’t show up well in these images is that this is a rather sheer polish. Kind of more of a topper unless you plan on committing to three coats. It is a lavender wash of tint and electric shimmer that looks amazing on top of my normal neutral polish. The texture is not super shiny, but nor is it matte, giving a pretty demure pearly finish to a soft polish. If you built up with multiple coats it quickly becomes more opaque.
Emma Hardie Purifying Pink Clay Detox Mask, 15 ml – Estimated Value $15.60 (Buy a full size 50 ml for $52.00)
Another day, another clay mask for my dry skin. BUT WAIT. This clay mask was actually the least drying one I have ever sampled. It does boast the ability to ” improve moisture levels in the skin” but I totally wrote that off before I was proven wrong. It did indeed leave my skin feeling thoroughly cleansed, but it wasn’t drying at all. This is probably because it has glycerine and moringa oil, two ingredients my skin seems to enjoy, especially when it comes to moisture retention. It also smells so, so good! I am sorry I doubted you Emma Hardie. Forgive me?
Invisibobble Waver – Estimated Value $2.33 (Buy a 3 pack for $7.00)
I am an Invisibobble convert. I have them stashed all over and I love that they don’t leave creases in my hair or make my tresses extra frizzy. This is the newest offering from this brand and I am less enthused. I use bobby pins a lot (still not over the Olsen half-up looks of my early 20s) and I generally cross one of the other for extra hold, since my hair is thick and unruly. This wouldn’t work for me, but aside from that, I just have always considered bobby pins to be super temporary. You buy a bunch and slowly shed them all over your house, car, LIFE and then buy another pack when needed, and then you proceed to lose all of those as well and the cycle continues. This new plastic option is just too long term of a relationship for me, though maybe this is the adult direction I should be taking? This little thing works fine. Holds hair and leaves no crease, but I am just not convinced.
Omorovicza Cleansing Foam, 1.01 oz – Estimated Value $15.84 (Buy a full size 5.1 oz for $80.00)
I have gotten this cleanser before and I liked it then too. It is a creamy texture that foams just a little as you use it. The smell is really amazing, herbal, and floral, and greenish. The scent is almost my favorite part. The cleanser itself is really effective and also cooling, leaving your skin clean without dryness. This is one of those products I really love, but would never consider actually buying because of the price. I am certainly happy to get another generous sample size though!
Unwined by Hask Brut Rose Inspired Deep Conditioner, 1.8 oz – Retail value $3.99
Unwined by Hask Provence Rose Inspired Deep Conditioner 1.8 oz – Retail value $3.99
My mouth loves wine and my face loves a wine sheet mask, so why should my hair be left out? These packets are really large, and even with my long, very thick hair I could probably get a little over 2 uses from each. These are not the heaviest deep conditioners I have ever tried, but that suits me fine since I prefer my hair a little wild. They smell more like strawberries and watermelon than wine, which was a little disappointing, but probably a good thing since I don’t need to be wandering around the grocery store smelling like a winery. I applied after shampooing and left on for about 5 minutes before I washed out and then slept on my damp hair. They both worked about the same, giving my hair a nice moisture boost and a little extra shine the next day.
Sleek Makeup Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Sun is Shining’, 9 g – Retail Value $12.99
I am not really very impressed with this palette. The colors are fine, but the pigment is really lacking and there is a ton of fallout, even with fingertip application. Aside from a few of the shimmery options, these shades didn’t apply smoothly and some of the mattes were downright chalky. It took a lot of effort to swatch a few of them because the color just didn’t show up without a few swipes. It is true that I am likely spoiled by higher quality (and higher priced) palettes, but this is not one I would recommend to anyone, even at the low price.
Verdict: GlossyBox was well rounded this month. We received everything from hair products to a facial cleanser, and a nail polish. This box has a value of $64.23, which is decent for this $21 box. My favorite would 100% be the nail polish. I love the color. I also really enjoyed that cleanser and the hair masks. The clay mask was such a shocker! Can I use a clay mask without irritation?! The palette was a dud in terms of quality. It just wasn’t there. The hair clip was also something I don’t see becoming part of my routine, though I have managed to not lose it yet, so maybe there is hope?
