Trendmood is an Instagram account that has amassed a 1.5 million+ following for breaking the latest beauty news since 2012.  Ever since the first-ever Trendmood Box was released in mid-December 2019, every box released since then has sold out almost instantly.

This review is for Trendmood x Glo Skin Beauty Box that is sold out. 

My Subscription Addiction purchased this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Our Trendmood x Glo Skin Beauty Box Review

These boxes sell out so fast that I am still surprised I was able to snag one. I have attempted to purchase at least three other Trendmood boxes without success.


The info sheet for this box included information on the products as well as the step-by-step process of doing the at-home peel kit. I have never done a real peel at home before, so I was both excited and a little apprehensive.


Anti-Stress CBD Drops, 1 oz - Retail Value $125.

When I first saw the preview of this box, I wasn't immediately convinced I needed it. That is until I saw more information about these drops. My skin has mild rosacea, and I have found topical CBD to be a really effective product for treating sensitivity and redness. This small jar contains a whopping 1000 mg of full-spectrum CBD (which is the highest I have seen in a skincare product this size) along with adaptogens, like ashwagandha and reishi mushroom. Once I saw the retail value on this serum along with the formula, I knew I had to try and grab this box, and I am so happy I did. My skin absolutely loves this serum. I can use a few drops as a booster into my moisturizer, or keep the heavier concentration and apply it directly when my skin needs more TLC. Along with the star ingredients, this is made with squalane, shea butter, aloe, and jojoba oil, and the quality of the product and effectiveness of the formula really do live up to the higher price tag, even though I most likely won't be able to afford to re-purchase once I run out.


Retinol +C Professional Level Smoothing Peel Home Kit - Retail Value $75

I have never done an at-home peel kit before, and my motto is usually to leave stronger treatments like that to the professionals. The steps made it look doable, though, and I was curious about if I would get ~professional results~ or just an angry, irritated face (my mind usually operates on the best and worst-case scenarios, no in-between). This kit really comes with everything you need: the cleanser to use before you begin the process, the cleanser to use when you wake up the next day, a skin protectant for your eyes and mouth to protect the more delicate skin from the professional-grade ingredients, and even a mask to apply the peel and a headband to keep your hair out of your face. After cleansing with the included Glycolic Resurfacing Cleanser, I applied the Hydra-Bright Pro 5 Liquid Exfoliant with the gauze pads (they really thought of everything!), before applying the Renew Serum. The next step was to use the included cotton swabs and the Barrier Balm to protect sensitive areas, before opening up the fancy and official-looking jar of the Retinol +C Peel Boost and pouring it into the mask cup. I applied it to my face using the included mask brush and then crossed my fingers hoping that there would be no burning that would indicate I needed to wash the peel off. I would also like to note here that in preparation for doing this peel, I stopped using other exfoliants a few days prior to ensure my skin wouldn't be too sensitive. Even if you don't have sensitive skin like mine, I recommend taking this step if you're going to try a peel at home. Luckily, there was no burning! It was a little weird to only tissue off the excess after 15 minutes and then go to bed without doing any other skincare routine, but in the efforts of trying my best, I followed the instructions and washed my face the next day with the included Gentle Cream Cleanser. In terms of results, I definitely noticed that my skin was a lot smoother, but it was also very dry and a bit red. I made sure to follow up with the Anti-stress drops as well as a heavy moisturizer and stuck with soothing products over the next few days as well as SPF 50 to protect my skin. After a few days, I did notice that my skin appeared brighter and my skin tone more even. This was a fun experience to do, and I think I would even do another at-home peel if it was from a brand I trusted!


Verdict: I have been trying to nab a Trendmood box for a while, and I am pretty pleased with the fruits of my voracious clicking efforts. The CBD serum is knockout, and I had fun doing my first at-home peel, too. The value was absolutely there, too, with a retail value of $200 and a box cost of $45. I'll definitely be trying to grab another Trendmood box- anyone else with me?

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you order today? No, this one has sold out.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

Hi Jessica!

I also picked this kit up (was able to snag 2 of them) and was very impressed with the results. I have been having peels for the better part of 25 years and have to say I loved this.

I’m hoping to use the discount they offered to purchase some of these items. Hopefully they will offer this kit again in the future 🙂

I really like the trendmood boxes. They are one-time purchases, so no monthly charges or worrying about cancelling. The boxes always seem to ship right away, and the curation always seems fun and unique.

Personally, one time use products don’t suit me as I rarely can tell a difference and the extra packaging always seems wasteful.

I appreciate the review and hope to see more!

Great review as always, Jessica! I have a couple of questions.
Does the CBD oil smell like extra virgin olive oil? I got mine from Birchbox’s October box (full size option) and it is green and smells like olive oil or grassy. It has 750mg and I use it as night time serum.
Also is the peel kit for one time use or how many uses do you think it has? Thanks!

Hi Kay!
I don’t recall my Cbd drops smelling like olive oil. When I get home, I’ll give them another smell. The texture is a milky white, and nothing green about it.
The peel is single use, though a few of the minis have an extra use or too (but not the retinol and vitamin c mixture that comes in the sealed jar).
Hope this helps!

Thank you for the response! I ordered NewBeauty VIP November box and this exact CBD oil was in the box, so I don’t have to buy this box! I feel like the current CBD oil calms my redness, so it is great to have another bottle to try after!
