GlossyBox Limited Edition Egg 2020 Review

 

GlossyBox includes a spring-colored info booklet that talks about each of the six items included in this year’s egg.

 

Q+A Niacinamide Daily Toner, 3.4 oz. – Retail Value $11.00

This toner feels very gentle. It has aloe, honeysuckle, and citric acid which chemically exfoliates the skin and promotes cell regeneration. I can’t detect any fragrance and it feels quite soothing on the skin as well as moisturizing. Niacinamide (vitamin B3) helps reduce visually large pores and soften wrinkles. This toner looks basic but has proved to be anything but.

 

3INA The Highlighter in Pink 200 – Retail Value $17.00

Something about this compact looks very classy to me. I think it’s the minimal matte packaging. I love that this highlighter comes with a mirror that takes up the entire lid of the compact. Inside, the soft rose/champagne colored powder is neatly pressed with the 3INA square logo stamped into it. I find the powder to be beautiful and subtle so that I can build on it. It’s not overly sparkly which I appreciate and gives just enough of a pink shimmer to pop out my cheekbones, brow bones, nose, and cupid’s bow. I’ll definitely be holding onto this one and using it more.

 

Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in Cosmic – Retail Value $26.00

What a pretty pink color “Cosmic” is in this semi-matte cream lipstick. I love the sleek black square tube as well. The formula is really creamy and makes my lips feel super moisturized and not dry AT ALL. I think this is a great everyday color that doesn’t steal the show from a bolder eye look or can complement a more minimal face of makeup. It’s the perfect shade and it stays put for a long time too!

Here is a makeup look I did using the highlighter and lipstick. Highlighter is a little harder to catch but you can see it most prominently on the tip of my nose which is my favorite spot to add it!

 

TONYMOLY Pudding Pudding Grape Jelly Mask

Jelly masks aren’t my favorite type of sheet mask, but the whole pudding idea got me a little curious. I received the mask in grape, which wasn’t overpowering scent-wise. This sheet was a little trickier than most to carefully unfold through all the gelatinous serum. I really like K-Beauty and TONYMOLY is at the top of the game, but this mask was just kind of ok. The package it came in was more exciting than the experience. It did make my skin feel pretty nice afterward but wasn’t anything to write home about.

 

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Belle Make-Up Headband – Retail Value $6.99

Although the only headband I could find online has a different name, it looks to be the same style in pink instead of blue. Perhaps this one has a bit of a wider band though. At any rate, I was pleased to see this baby blue polka dot number in the egg since I always need headbands to keep my hair back when washing my face. The soft microfiber makes it super comfortable while the wide band keeps all hair out of my face. The only issue I have is that since I have fine hair, this does like to slowly slip off of my head unless I have it over my ears and at the front of my forehead (which works). The headband is machine washable, so I can toss it in with my laundry after a few uses to make sure it stays clean.

 

Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment, 0.17 oz – Estimated Value $14.45 (Buy 1 oz for $85.00)

Sunday Riley’s Good Genes line is a subscription box staple. This treatment is loaded with AHA glycolic acid which is a chemical exfoliant, it will help rid your face of dull skin to expose newer skin that should reduce fine lines and repair sun damage. This lightweight opaque cream can be applied at night or in the morning after cleansing and before any moisturizer. The subtle fragrance isn’t super pleasant but doesn’t bother me either. It just smells a little clinical, if that makes any sense. This treatment gives my skin a slightly plumper look and makes it feel softer as well.

Verdict: This year’s GlossyBox Easter Egg is pretty awesome! It’s sad that it sold out, but it’s good to know what to expect for next year as well. The egg itself is a cute Easter decoration that I can fill with candy and the six items inside were all well-liked by me! The two makeup items were probably my favorite which is surprising since I’m such a skincare junky, but perhaps they hit the right spot for me. I love mauve lippies as well as a good powder highlighter in sleek packaging. The jelly mask was a little much and the Sunday Riley product was a little played out, but I loved getting the headband too since I always need to hold my hair back when doing my skincare routines. I really liked my first egg and I think $24 is a great value for what came in it!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No- sadly this year’s Easter Egg is now sold out. 🙁

Value Breakdown: At $24.00 for this box (for subscribers), each of the 6 items in this box has an average cost of $4.00.

  1. Thanks for the review. I did pass on this one. I didn’t feel like it was a super value. The egg is super cute though.

  2. Nice review, but I am glad I didn’t get this. Nothing interesting here

    • Thanks, Nat!

  3. You’re right. That Sunday Riley Good Genes is completely a box staple now. Oddly enough, through Target, I found my own holy grail glycolic treatment in their Acure Resurfacing Overnight Glycolic Treatment. The Sunday Riley Good Genes is OK, but for the price (and for the results), I’m hooked now on this Acure brand. Just waiting for my full size to come in the mail (hang ups with UPS with the virus thing).

    • Ooh- I really like Acure stuff too! Especially their sheet masks!
      Thanks for weighing in, Linda!

  4. I think you mean “anything but” about the toner. “Nothing but” means that it’s exactly as basic to you as it seems.

    • Haha, you are so right, Julia. Thanks for catching!
