Glossy Box - Feb 2015 Review



              GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. They have the best packaging in the business, their products are usually deluxe-size or full size, and the value is usually really good too. From their site: Glossybox is a bespoke box of 5-6 luxury-sized cosmetic and wellness samples hand-picked by our beauty experts and mailed directly to your door. No matter which subscription plan you choose, from once-a-month to just once, this box is perfect little present from you to you! 

But the only drawback I feel is that delayed delivery of the box (comes around - whenever they feel like it)
It costs $21 a month (save more with 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription)

COUPON: Save 15% off your first box! with coupon code MSAMARCH15 on Glossybox.

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included. Like the cost, quantity & short description.

* RITUALS Yogi Flow Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil Foaming Shower Gel - Full Size: Value $15
This gel body wash transforms into a rich, nurturing foam on contact with water. Combines the ancient Ayurvedic ingredients of Sweet Almond Oil and Indian Rose (sic). It has a nice floral fragrance to it.

* Unwash bio-cleansing conditioner (2.5 oz) -Delux sample - Value $6.67
This Unwash conditioner is meant to replace your shampoo and conditioner. This one is paraben and sulfate free, so I was happy to try it. But it is sud-free and my hair felt a bit more oily & heavy after using this. (Maybe I'm used too much to all the foam & bubbles on my hair).

* Julep Nail Color in Hartleigh - Full Size -  Value $14
I really do love this. I got the same from my Julep Valentine Welcome box. So this is an extra. I might gift it or give it in a giveaway.. (Really!!! )

* Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in Pink – Full size - Value $14
This lip butter packaging is so pretty. And the lip butter is so smooth & has a very rosy tint. Keepsake collectible.

* Scalisi Cleanser & Exfoliator - Full Size - Value $25
This gives a great feel to skin & claims to have Vitamin A, C & E & helps to both exfoliate & moisturize skin. Also is paraben free.


But one nagging problem is that the Scalisi Cleanser contains 'Polyethylene' as the third ingredient ( in plain words - PLASTIC') and the microbeads present in this are probably made out of it. These have been banned in several states as they are detrimental to marine / aquatic wildlife and to humans as well. So I'm not really interested in this product. And I'm not seeing other subscribers getting this product. So its kinda weird that I got this. Others have got either Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara or a chunky Lip crayon (not sure of the brand).

But, Overall the box worth is approx $75 which is too good value for the $21 box.
