Hello! Glad to see you again! I'm very excited for this post because this is going to be the opening of my very first Glossybox! For those of you who don't know what Glossybox is, it's a monthly subscription service where you get a box in the mail each month that contains deluxe samples or full-sized products of make-up and skincare/haircare. There are a LOT of these types of services out there right now that range in price from $10 up to $50+. Glossybox is in the middle at $21 a month for 4-5 products/samples (and that includes shipping, which is nice). I heard about Glossybox from Youtube, actually. I like watching "products I regret buying" videos (I don't know why they amuse me so much) and one of the vloggers was bashing Birchbox (on a side note, I would never sign up for a Birchbox. It just seems so random both in the type and quality of the samples you receive) and talked about other subscription services that she thought were better. Glossybox was one of those. Since I love getting things in the mail, I love trying new things, and I love surprises (if you don't go on the website near the end of the month when they revel what's in the boxes, you can be surprised), I thought why not!
This is the box that came in the mail. It's turned funny so you can see the Glossybox name and so you can't see my address. I wasn't actually home when it came, but my postperson (we have like...5 different ones. I don't know why.) left it at management office for my apartment building.
The first item I pulled out of my box was this:
The second item I pulled out was:
Next up we have:
The fourth item I got was:
Finally, my last product was:
Overall, I am very pleased with my March 2013 Glossybox! It contains a couple products that I wouldn't consider buying on my own, but that's kind of the point of these subscription boxes. They good at easing you out of your make-up comfort zone without having to invest a lot of money in trying new things. I was really surprised to get four full sized products; I thought it would be one, maybe two full sizes and the rest deluxe samples, but no, I got four full sizes! I paid $21 for my box (which, again, includes the shipping and handling) and it has a value of about $76.45 (I didn't include the $40 coupon because to me that doesn't really add any value), so overall, a good deal! I'm really looking forward to April's box and I might even gift my mom a box (they give you the option of giving a box as a gift) for Mother's Day. Seriously, if you like getting random things in the mail, sign up for Glossybox. Also, if you do want to sign up, it would be really cool if you used my referral link: http://www.glossybox.com/referal?CI=NDczMTY= , but you totally don't have to.
Thanks for reading! I look forward to seeing you next time!
