Glossybox April 2013 Review


My April Glossybox FINALLY came, with only a few days to spare. It was worth the wait though, and I am excited to use all the products inside! Also, I love getting  a fair share of products and this month we got 6 items! I was so happy about that!


Glossybox is a beauty subscription service that sends you 4-7 deluxe sized samples by amazingly nice brands. It costs $21/month, and I’ve ALWAYS gotten at least double the price back by the products inside. Many of the brands I have never heard of before, or maybe a new product that I’ve always been scared to buy and try…. These kinds of things are the reasons why subscription boxes are so fun! You learn about so many amazing new brands!


The boxes always come with a short little hello about the months theme, and inside the card lists the products, descriptions, and values of everything included this month.


Now let’s get to the goodies inside!!! :]

Item #1 • Alterna Haircare 
Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mix (Full size: $22.00, 4.2 oz) 
This product is supposed to give a “just got back from the beach” look wavy hair. I am so excited to try this because I am always looking for a perfect spray that does just that! Thanks Glossybox, you always seem to send me what I need! :] Check out the product here.


Item #2 • Bvlgari 
Eau Parfumèe au thè Blanc Tea Bag for Bath, price: $9.50/ 1 package 
I don’t even usually take baths, however I might have to change this ASAP because it smells like the same amazingly delicious soap also from Bvlgari that Glossybox sent me a few months back. I love the smell so much!!! Will have to try this “bath tea” for sure! Check out the product here on Amazon.


Item #3 • The Honest Company
Honest Organic Lip Balm, price: $3.31 
This is a great lip balm, flavored in “Sweet Orange Vanilla”. It smells delicious and works great! Check them out here.


Item #4 • TIGI Cosmetics
Glow Blush, Lovely, price: $22.00 
This is a perfectly blendable blush that glows with the perfect amount of pinkness! Check out the product here.

Item #5 • Wash With Joe 
Coffeemint Invigorating Body Wash, 1.0 oz (Full size: $28.00/ 16 oz.) 
This smells fantasticcccc! What a great way to wake up in the morning in the shower! If I didn’t already have so many other soaps around the house from all my beauty subscriptions, I would have been more tempted to purchase this. Smells THAT good. I just don’t spend that much money on soap. Check them out here.


Item #6 • Le Mètier De Beautè 
Replenishing Daily Solution, .10 oz (Full size: $225.00, 1.7 0z) 
This is a CRAZY expensive cream! These are the kind of items I LOVE receiving boxes like Glossybox because this is a cream that I would NEVER have ever tried before… if it wasn’t for my Glossybox! I’ll get one use of some super fancy cream! They also gave Glossybox members a discount to knock $75 off the total price, making the full sized product “only” cost $150.00. The code is: GlossyBox. Check out the product here.

This box wasn’t my FAVORITE, but I definitely love everything in it and will be able to put it all to good use! LOVE MY GLOSSYBOX! Always, ALWAYS worth the price. The $22 full sized blush in this box paid for the box itself! :] If you like Glossybox, you should give it a try! Click here to sign up! That’s my referral link.


all love & smiles :]

Glossybox February 2013 Review

This month’s Glossybox was fantastic. As soon as I opened the box I was overwhelmed by the amazing aroma coming out of it. I soon found out it was because of the lovely smelling soap in there, but I will get to that soon! I am excited to use all 5 items :]

IMG_0817 They used pretty pink paper & ribbon to wrap this month’s box, which looked great! They have been changing up the colors lately, so maybe this will be a new monthly thing. Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription service that costs $21/month. You get 5 travel sized (and sometimes full sized) items a month, and they introduce you to awesome new brands and products. Completely worth the money!

In this month’s box, it was all about International Style…


Item #1: Bvlgari
Eau Parfumée Au Thé Blanc soap, 1.76 oz
(Full size, $30.00/5.3 oz)

IMG_0819This soap smells soooooooo good. It reminds me of vacation for some reason (and even the BF agreed!) I don’t even want to use it because then it’s gonna be gone & I won’t be able to smell the awesome beachy vacation smell I somehow I get out of this soap. I personally would never pay $30 for regular soap, because let’s face it, I hate showering as it is, so soap doesn’t really excite me too much (plus, I use men’s body washes like Old Spice or Axe because I love those musky guy scents). All in all, I am very happy with this product and can’t wait to smell it all over me!!!! :]

Item #2: Da Vinci Cosmetics
Shimmer Powder, Full size, ($15.00/.06 oz)


I received #04 “Dejavous”, it’s pinkish but so shimmery it’s light and silvery/white I guess. It got all over my hands before I even opened it, but I didn’t mind because I like sparkly things :] It seems like a perfect highlighter for eyes or cheeks, plus I like the mini lil packaging.

Item #3: Lisi
Sheer Sparkle Lip Gloss, Full size ($6.90/0.31 oz)

IMG_0820 IMG_0821 IMG_0822

I received #012 “Soho”, in the Sheer Sparkle gloss, and first off, I thought this smelled amazing too!!! It reminds me of one of my old favorite Lip Smacker vanilla frosting smells, brings me back & makes me smile :] It’s not sticky or creepy like some glosses, and it’s not too dark or sparkly, it’s just perfect for me :] I’m very excited for this product (plus I always love getting full sizes!!).

Item #4: Missha
Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask, Full size ($6.00/0.98 oz)

IMG_0825 IMG_0826


I think I’ve only used 1 or 2 gel masks before, but I am excited to try this one out because of the weirdness of it. The third ingredient is “snail slime”. It’s creepy and weird and I love it and can’t wait to try it!!!

Item #5: Nail Rock
Nail Wraps, Full size ($8.00/full set)

IMG_0827 IMG_0829


I love any products I get that are for nails, so I got excited when I got this!!!…. but then, I saw the color I received and wasn’t too excited anymore. I got #NR041 “Union Jack Gold And Black”. It’s like the British flag or something, but instead of being the red white and blue, it’s just gold and black. I suppose I will still try them out, but they look too much like stickers and not the other kinds of nail wraps I have used before. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised :]

For the $21 I spent on this box, I got almost $40 worth of products! How’s that for awesome? It’s all wrapped up super cute & nice, an awesome surprise to wait for in the mail, what more can I ask for?! :]

all love & smiles :]
