Glossybox – $60/3 months or $21/month

I started this review over a week ago and I forgot that I never finished posting it, so now my June box review is really really late!!! Better late than never?

Glossybox built up a lot of hype for June’s box. It was a special box made by fashion illustrator Dallas Shaw. Instead of the usual pink box, this month was white with a fashion doll printed on the lid. It arrived on July 3rd, but I left town and didn’t get back home until Friday evening, July 6th, so this review is way late!

I am often surprised to find box contents neatly displayed when I first open them, it seems more logical to expect to find everything in a pile at the bottom or on the side due to all the traveling to get to me. It appears that the crinkly paper filler works wonders!

C. Booth Dry Oil Spray – I tried out a timid amount today on my legs that were super dry from neglect, and it was not really moisturizing. They were still dry feeling. I’ll have to try again and use a lot more. The bottle says it’s for face and body, maybe it’s not strong enough for body use? I’ll try it on my face at some point, I’m hesitant to spray oil on my face. I have been using it on my arms after showering to see if I noticed a difference, it really needs more than just one spray to moisturize. My arms really like this and it doesn’t smell perfumey. Designating this to the “Daily Use Shelf”!!

Phillip B Leave in Conditioner – This is going to my mom, she appreciates a good leave in conditioner. 🙂 My hair is not damaged enough to warrant use of this product.

Essential Luxuries – 6 Oscar de la Renta perfume samples in a drawstring bag. Santo Domingo, Granada, Oriental Lace, Mi Corazon, Sargasso, and Coralina. I can’t decide on my favorite. After smelling two, the rest smell the same! My nostrils are on data overload status. I’ll take that to mean that the average scent of these 6 perfumes = nod of approval.

SpaRitual nail polish in Solitude – This is more of a Fall purple creme polish than a summery one. I will hold off on trying this one out for a while. There are too many cute nail colors waiting to be worn before Fall!

Tarte Complexion lip stick in Medium/Tan – I tried it out on my lips and it is the feeling of a lipstick but the color content of a tinted balm, which means I can’t build it up to add color because too much product deposits on my lips. I gave this to a friend that loves this brand and has more natural daily makeup look. I prefer my lip color bright and cheery. Love me some fuschia!

This box was the last of my 3 month subscription and I did not intend on renewing. On 4th of July I checked my email right before I went to bed and saw Glossybox was offering 20% off subscriptions. In my moment of weakness I went right ahead and got another 3 months for $48 (+ tax in CA). I kicked myself for it the rest of the week because I have way overdone the June budget for beauty products and subscription boxes. Oh well, I guess you’ll be seeing 3 more reviews in the next few months!!

What do you guys think about Glossybox? Is this anyone’s favorite sub?

I can email you a referral link to sign up if you want to try your own Glossybox!
