Glossybox Review - July 2014 & Coupon Code

Glossybox is a monthly subscription that sends out full size and deluxe beauty and makeup items. It's only $21 but they also offer 3-month, 6-month and an annual subscription as well. 

First look

They do take a while to ship though because I didn't even get my box until over a week into August.

     This body cream is so indulgent. It's made with pure English honey, organic cocoa, sweet almond oil, Vitamin B5 and shea butter to make your skin super soft. It's also infused with essential oils such as lavender oil, rose extract and sweet violet extract from the Mitchell's fifth-generation farm in England. It smells just as good as it sounds, absorbs into the skin very well, and is made without parabens and synthetic coloring. 

     This serum is a custom blend of Skin Inc.'s patented encapsulation technology featuring Coenzyme Q10 to enhance the skin's ability to energize and renew itself, Marine-Collagen to promote elasticity and Hyaluronic for hydration. I love the fact that Glossybox went to bold with such a big ticket item but at the same time it was the downfall for this box for me. This isn't a product I'm going to use so I was sad to see that it was the biggest dollar value item in the box. I will end up swapping this to someone who will actually use it.

     This lightweight toner adjusts the pH of tap water to leave your hair smooth after getting out of the shower. It also helps detangle your hair and keep it frizz-free. It works best if you spray it in right after you wash your hair but you can use it during the day as well. It's paraben and phthalate free and safe for color-treated hair. It's also made with Apple Cider Vinegar which is a natural pH balancer. I do hate the smell of vinegar which kind of sucks because it means I won't really use this either. To the swap pile for this as well.

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm (Value - $6.85 - Deluxe Size)
     At first I thought this was the full size but after looking closely I realized it was a deluxe size. Either way I'm happy to have it. I love this! First off, the mojito flavor is amazing. Secondly, the gel lip balm goes on smooth but not sticky. Added bonus: color and paraben free. I will definitely be getting more of this!

     This was the thing I was most excited to try from this box! It's known as the 10-minute "facial in a jar." The "magic" behind the treatment is the NEW patented TEAOXI technology with real Green Tea Leaf that helps deliver fresh antioxidants. It's also made with French Sea Clay and Volcanic Rock. The mask is supposed to exfoliate, detoxify, and revitalize leaving you with smoother, brighter, and softer skin. This is my favorite thing in the box! 

Totaled up I got a value of $96.19 for this box. It's a great deal value for what I paid for the box and I'll use 3 out of 5 items. If you want to sign up for Glossybox click here.
