GLOSSYBOX Review April 2018

GLOSSYBOX is a monthly beauty subscription box filled with beauty essentials for you to discover. Every month, receive 5 deluxe to full size beauty products that have been handpicked from around the globe in a beautiful keepsake box! They kindly sent us this box for review.

Did you know that GLOSSYBOX has been around since 2011? This means two things – they are one of the original subscription boxes, and they must know what they are doing. The subscription box world is finicky. Subscription boxes come and go on a regular basis. So…..anytime I come across a box that has been in business longer than 3 years I immediately think – this must be a good one.

Subscription Details

When you sign up for a GLOSSYBOX subscription you can choose from the following options:

  • monthly subscription
  • 3-month subscription
  • 6-month subscription
  • 12-month subscription

Every month you will receive a selection of five beauty treats that include niche, high-end, and emerging brands.

They source products from all over the world—to bring you the absolute best in beauty. With over 400 brands in their repertoire.

Inside each box, they provide you with a detailed description card with tips and tricks on how to use the products included.

To make sure your box fits your needs, fill in the beauty profile when you sign up. Update it when your personal style evolves, and they will customize the products sent to you accordingly.

Here’s a closer look at the April GLOSSYBOX……

April Details

We wanted to officially welcome you to Spring with a box that celebrates beauty from the inside out. We all know that when we look good, we feel good, and to amplify your natural beauty, we have supplied you with a collection of restorative products that will quite literally make you radiate from within.

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel

Enjoy this unique shower foam technology. Simply squeeze a small amount of gel into your hand, massage it into your skin and watch it transform into a rich, creamy, moisturizing foam.

Yes! We are off to a good start! I love this brand! We received a full-size bottle of Rituals Foaming Shower Gel in a previous box and I absolutely loved it. It’s exactly as they describe – rich, creamy, foamy.

Karl Lagerfeld + Modelco Baked Blush in Rose Beige

Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo Baked Blush creates a warm glow to brighten and highlight every complexion. The micronized colour pigments and luxurious pressed powder delivers a sheer, natural radiance that lasts all day.

Normally I wouldn’t be attracted to a product like this but I like the idea of sheer, natural radiance so I might have to give it a try. It’s absolutely gorgeous, how could I not test it out?!

Oolution Eye Love

Eye love is a 100 % natural eye contour. It contains more than 65 botanical active ingredients (all organically grown) for a tailored action. Eye Love reduces dark circles and bags thanks to its vasoconstrictive and detoxifying natural ingredients. With its moisturizing and draining efficacy, it minimizes the visible signs of fatigue in the eye contour area.

Now this is what I like to see! I love a good eye cream and I love testing new ones out. Believe it or not I like to keep an eye cream in my purse, especially when we travel. My under eye area gets dry easily so I am constantly applying cream to give myself a more rested look.

The Browgal Skinny Eyebrow Pencil

Carefully formulated, designed and tested by celebrity brow artist and founder Tonya Crooks over the past 13 years, The BrowGal Skinny Eyebrow Pencils are comprised of six unique custom-blended shades to perfectly match a wide variety of hair colors and emulate the look of real hair. In fact, these versatile tones easily allow anyone to find the perfect match for their hair color. No more creamy product that goes on to thick and unnaturally, but instead blendable pencils to easily define and shape the brow. Built to last, the innovative pencils are early call-time, rock tour and movie set tested and are sweat and water resistant. This is the must have tool Tonya uses on all her celebrities. Those kickass brows ain’t goin’ anywhere!

This is a product that doesn’t apply to me as I have very dark eyebrows as it is. But……..I know of 3 (maybe 4) people off the top of my head who are always asking me about brow products. This item will make a wonderful gift.

La Roche-Posay Face Wipes

Our facial wipes cleanse away oil and pore clogging impurities, down to microscopic pollution particles. They visibly tighten pores and refine skin texture. They are formulated with micro-exfoliating Lip-Hydroxy Acid and oil-targeting Zinc Pidolate. This refreshing, no-rince formula can be used daily as a face cleanser for oily skin.

This is a must-have product for me. I use face wipes often and try to keep a pack handy for road trips and vacations. I like that this particular wipe is made with a no-rinse formula and that it can be used daily.

GLOSSYBOX Review April 2018 – Final Thoughts

GLOSSYBOX is THE beauty subscription box… my opinion. They curate an amazing box month after month and they work with the best brands. The April box only includes one product I can’t use, but it will make for an amazing gift. Every month they provide me with at least one beauty essential, at least one product I’ve never tried and they always introduce me to great new brands. GLOSSYBOX is professional, consistent and beautifully packaged. What more can you ask for?!
