  1. In case anyone is still checking this post, I just wanted to add that I received my order for the BOGO holiday box offer today and my order included both boxes. (And I confirmed I was only charged for the single $40 box) Yay! Such a great deal.

    As for my process: I just added a single box to my order. Nothing ever reflected that I would receive the second box that were advertised – not my confirmed order, not my emailed order, not my online order status. Nothing So I just kept my fingers crossed. For once, everything went as planned. Double yay!

    • Same (received 2 boxes today), except for it did say in a red banner at the top of the page that you would receive 2 boxes , even though only one shows in your cart. I’m not sure they are still doing this offer though. I think they changed it to a free holiday box with a new subscription.

      • Yep, I did see that. But oddly I also saw another red box, either just above or just below that one – I can’t remember, about the coupon code not applying or something like that. I never even input a coupon code so it made no sense. I figured it was just an odd glitch. But that oddity, coupled with some of the comments below about only getting one holiday box or one Mother’s Day box, made me think glossy might mess this up too and only send one box. But no! Yay! Serves me right for being a cynic!

        So I just wanted to report that at least some of the orders worked as they were supposed to work. Im so glad yours was right too. Wonders never cease! (There goes my cynicism again!)

    • I called CS as soon as I saw the promotion on GB’s website; the deal had just been advertised on their site. It was before GB or MSA sent emails about it. The CS rep. didn’t know about the promotion, but she checked and then she completed the transaction for me over the phone. She was very nice, and I received the extra box. I called bc it wasn’t clear whether you were supposed to add 1 or 2 boxes to your cart. It’s troubling to hear about rude CS reps and even more troubling that GB didn’t send the BOGO to everyone who ordered it. It’s like the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing!

  2. I received the email for the BOGO offer & put 2 holiday boxes in my cart, it was charging for both. Immediately called their rude CS rep who refused to help but
    complained after being only one there. Read this post that said order 1 and 2nd would be sent automatically. Did that, followed up with them repeatedly for 6 days. They answered today to say I would only get 1. Shoddy, shady company! Anyone else experience this?

    • Yes. The same happened to me, for this box and the mother’s day bogo deal. Their customer service is absolutely rude and horrible. I am still dealing with them

      • So sorry to hear that! You might want to ask them for a 50% refund.

    • I ordered as described in the comments, adding one box. I got one box. 🙁

      • As I just mentioned, try asking for a refund for half of it.

    • Yes, this happened to me as well. Luckily, I took a screenshot of the deal as posted here saying they would automatically ship 2, (gut instinct), so they agreed to refund me 50% of the cost, only because of that screenshot, I’m sure. Now we wait and see if they actually process the refund.

      • I took the screenshot and sent it to them in advance on the first day. Five days later they asked for the screenshot I’d already sent. After 6 days, they said they would refund 50% at my request since that was the only alternative I could think of and that’s why I shared it with MSA.

        • Gosh, I had a feeling the no-code promo would be a total fiasco – it’s not even the first time with Glossybox. Every time there is some big promo that people are excited about, they have problems with it when they actually receive their orders.

          As I said in the very first post, I don’t know how Glossybox is still even in business.

        • Yes, thank you for doing that. I just got an email, and they did indeed refund 50% of the cost of the box back to my credit card. Good on Glossybox.

          • Yay! I love it when these have a happy ending! The CS person I eventually worked with was very sweet, took a while to get there!

  3. This stuff has been laying around for a long time. The eyeshadow actually ditached and connected to the cap. I can’t belieave this.

    • My advent calendar came yesterday, everything seems fine. I actually liked it more in person and will end up using more items from it than I initially thought I would.

  4. You know, I’m relieved that they sold out as it has solved my dilemma. I had been thinking and thinking about whether to buy, now my problem is solved!

    • Ha! Mine too!

  5. Sold out. Dang.

  6. Advent calendar already sold out?

    • Well, I mean, even if those aren’t the hottest items, $49.50 for 25 items with no tax and free shipping is a steal.

  7. When do the products expire? Just asking because it’s now July and this was released end of 2018.

    • They should have a shelf life of 36 months, but I don’t think there is any way of knowing when anything in these boxes was manufactured.

      I remember receiving a practically empty jar in one of the Glossybox limited edition boxes once because the cream had dried out.

    • I suspect these are not just made products and they have been laying around the warehouse for at least 8 months. That’s why it’s on sale. None of the items have expiration date on them. So really, there is no way of knowing

  8. I grabbed the Holiday BOGO. I got the box when it first came out and like the Cirem stuff. At 40$ for two of those, that’s a heckin heck of a deal.

    • Agreed! I am buying the two sheerly for the Cirem.

    • Agree. I got 1 Holiday LE box a few months ago on sale for $25, and was so happy to get the BOGO before it sold out. Fantastic deal. It’s a great box!

  9. Can anyone help me with this??? I ordered this thru the MSA link above and used the XMASJULY promo code last night I already got a shipping notification but it only states 1 box. So my question is will I be receiving 1 or 2 boxes? I’m hoping 2 because that’s the only reason I purchased it..

    • The code was only applicable for the advent calendar. The holiday box didn’t need a promo code, nor would the second free box have been reflected in your order.

  10. Does anyone know what is in the limited edition box and if products are from last Christmas and out of date?

    • If you search MSA for Glossy Box holiday, you will find the spoilers. It was posted last November.

    • I’m pretty sure it’s the same as the 2018 holiday box and the products were these:

      • Those are the spoilers for the advent calendar.

        The holiday limited edition box only has seven items:

        – Wunder Extensions Mascara
        – The Beauty Crop Glow Milk
        – VDL Lip
        – RITUALS Soothing Hand Balm
        – Raw Spirit Fragrances Discovery Set
        – Cirem 3-in-1 Serum
        – Decorte eyeshadow

        I wouldn’t know how old any of the items are.

  11. Does this start a subscription or do you have to have a subscription with GB to place an order?

    • No to both questions

      • Thank you, Nat! 🙂

  12. Does anyone have spoilers for the advent calendar?

        • Ah, okay. Thanks for the heads up.

      • I read the reviews on the Advent Calendar on Glossybox’s website. Customers were saying that they were disappointed, as the US version is VERY different from the UK version. i.e. a lot of sample sized products & brands that hadn’t heard of before.

        • The full spoilers are posted two comments below yours.

    • Use the search bar above and look for GlossyBox Advent Calendar. One post says it has full spoilers, but they are the spoilers for the UK box, and the US one was different, so maybe look at the comments on the second post that contains those keywords.

    • * Hey Honey Trick and Treat Active Propolis Cream Concealer
      * Invisibobble The Wonderful Slim Bauble

      Sizes vary from trial size to full size.

    • Shecrafty did an unboxing of the Glossy Box US advent calendar on YouTube.

    • I purchased one and have a pic, but can’t load it, I sent it to MSA a while ago. Some of the brands; DHC, Colorscience, bellapierre, luna by luna, nip fab, eyeko & invisbob things. There are cotton pads and two makeup brushes and more.

    • Also be careful of searching spoilers b/c glossybox offers better items in their UK boxes so you likely won’t recieve the same thing.

  13. I got the limited edition box at the same time as BOGO mothers day box. I believe it was on sale for maybe $25 or so. The only thing I’ve used so far was the Rituals hand balm. Love the smell! Definitely don’t need anymore. So will pass. Also no to the Advent calendar. I haven’t even looked what’s in there. I am sure nothing I need

  14. I got the BOGO deal. Just the Cirem makes it worth it and I am really interested in the tinting mascara. I have blonde eyelashes and eyes that water a lot so mascara has become super annoying to wear. I like tubing mascara but a tint might be even better.

    • Agreed! That cirem is soooo so nice! And for that price?! Yea, totally worth it!

      • Mine shipped already 🙂

  15. I hope that I get different colors of the makeup items in the Holiday box than I already received.

    • I don’t believe that there are any variations with these boxes.

      • There were two different colors of the VDL lipstick – poinsettia and maple. I got maple (ugh!) and am hoping for poinsettia. And I’m pretty sure that there were different colors of the eye shadow. But the rest of the items are all the same.

      • Ugh! I guess the only variation is in the lipstick. Looks like everyone got the same eye shadow, darn it.

  16. They will robably run out and refund my money like they did with the Mother’s Day Box!!!

  17. If I could just figure out how to use my store credit…

  18. I’m really excited to get two of these for $40 I can share the products and that assauges a lot of shopper guilt lol.

  19. Hmm, I just got the Raw Spirit discovery set in a swap, and I am really not interested in any of the other items in the limited edition box, let alone two of each…

    I think I’ll go take a look at that advent calendar again, I remember it was mostly the price that stopped me the last time, maybe I’ll splurge now. Not that I actually need anything, lol. The tough life of a beauty addict. 😊

    • Yeah, I pulled the trigger on the advent calendar. Even though the US version is totally inferior to the UK one, for $49.50 with no tax it’s still a good value, and I am sure I’ll use at least several of the items.

  20. Thanks for checking! I want the LE box, but was holding out for clarification

  21. Great deal but sadly not a single item in this box I’m interested in

    • Same here, but for both the box & advent calendar. I almost feel like something’s wrong with me for not jumping on this deal. lol!!!!

  22. Good to know since their CS rep said that the promotion did not exist, despite the emails we received about it.
