GlossyBox – February 2017
Hey guys and dolls! Here is the breakdown of January 2017 GlossyBox!
GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. It costs $21 billed monthly. However, a 3 month plan will bring your monthly cost down to $19, 6 months would be $18.50 and a year would be $17.50. Each month you get 4-5 luxury beauty products, with a minimum of 4 full size products. This box will include a mixture of skin care, makeup, nail care, fragrance and more. Although, this is a pricier box, it is always a good value for the price you pay. Just like the Ipsy bag, if you don’t have a lot of extra money to spend but want to get new beauty products every month and have the ability to try different items, this box is for sure a good way to do it!

My Final Thoughts:
I wasn’t particularly as jazzed about this box as I was with the others. But that isn’t because it’s not a great box! It totally is. It’s only because I would have preferred other items. I did like the Oolution’s Eye Love very much and have been using it often. The Mascara Melt by Too Faced is a really nice treat for your eye lashes and I think it was a great product to include in the box. Genius idea in general to put on the market in my opinion! The cream blush isn’t something I will reach for, I don’t think. I will try to give it a whirl, however. The mask intrigues me but to be honest the name of it throws me off! Ha! I do love a good mask though, so who knows! The scrubber that has the tag that wears away when it is time for a new one, is pretty awesome! That is also a genius idea for a product. So, not too shabby!
I want to hear from you!
