Glossybox - January 2014


Glossybox is a monthly subscription service that is available by the month ($21), or you can sign up for 3,6,or 12 month plans. Once you select a plan, you fill out your beauty profile, sit back and wait for your box filled with 5-6 luxury-sized samples! A little pricey for my tastes, but you do get some very nice things!

The box is nice and sturdy, and your items come wrapped in pretty black tissue paper tied up with a nice pink ribbon. Presentation is important, so well done Glossybox!

First look at my January goodies!

Vichy cream
Vichy aqualia thermal rich cream.
Soothe and strengthen dry skin with Vichy's aqualia thermal rich cream. This paraben-free formula melts easily into skin and locks in moisture for 48-hour lasting hydration. Formulated with mineral-rich Vichy Thermal Water and hyaluronic acid.

Bellapierre mineral blush
Bellapierre mineral blush.
This creamy super sheer all mineral blush creates a soft, radiant glow for fresh-faced rosy cheeks. Recommended by make-up artists and dermatologists, it is suitable for all skin types and conditions, from oily skin to dry, mature types and even the most sensitive.

While these products are all very nice, I wouldn't have purchased any of these on my own and they're not really of much interest to me. I enjoy receiving new things to try, which is why I like subscription boxes so much, but this is too much money for me to be disappointed month after month. I got a good deal on a 3 month subscription through Living Social, but will not be renewing it.
