Glossy Box is a monthly beauty subscription box that sends 5 mostly full sized products and some deluxe samples. They tend to be higher end, this is one of our favorites. Subscriptions are $21 a month which is a bit higher than some of the others out there but you definitely get more with Glossy!

Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our box insert. This details each item we received and the price of the full sized product
Unani Dermo Defense Face Mask
This mask is a combination of Aloe and Ayurvedic Herbs that help to hydrate and protect our skin. If you read this blog regularly you know how we feel about skincare items – needless to say we were happy to have received this!
Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream Extra Hold
So, we haven’t used this yet but… we still aren’t sure exactly what this is either. Dubbed a 10 in 1 styling product we are slightly confused. A CC? Isn’t that color correcting and for your face? Okay, this is for your hair… then why isn’t this a color correcting hair product and not a 10 in 1 jack of all trades? We are just slightly baffled. We’ll give this a shot but our hopes were a little deflated with this one.
Leighton Denny Expert Nails in Pillow Talk
This color is pretty although, we wouldn’t choose this for ourselves. Having said that we love the packaging and are definitely going to be painting our nails with this sometime soon!
Biossance The Nourisher Precious Rose Face Oil
$72 (1 ounce) we received a 0.14 ounce sample
This is our second Biossance product. We have to say that we really like the floral serums and face oils. They smell good and we really feel like they nourish our skin.
This serum in particular gives us a good does of Vitamin C and Squalane
Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner
So… we are on the fence with this one. We are kind of loving it and kind of just eh as well… (yes, it’s totally possible!)
Why are we loving it? Because it’s a brow duo. There’s a side for highlighting and a side for filling in and we really like that.
Our problem with this product is first in the hard pressing you have to do to get it to pick up color and the “movability” of the color. In our opinion brow pencils should survive all manner of physical feats such as nuclear war, bare knuckle boxing, and sample sales. This pencil doesn’t seem like it will hold up to those standards.
So in summary
We are way late in posting this but hey, whatever right? We really liked this box and felt like we got a lot of really nice items that we are definitely going to at the very least give a good try. We couldn’t figure out all the exact prices but we have a “rough” estimate of $65.50 in the April Glossy Box which we think is pretty fantastic!
