Glossybox wanted us to start the year right, making sure we had the best skincare and makeup for 2014.

Glossybox is another subscription service that offers five deluxe-size beauty products per month for $21 (free shipping). Subscription services are a way to experience and test out new beauty products. I have found my Holy Grail products through subscription services.

This is my first Glossybox and the packaging is so cute that now I want to save all the boxes lol. It comes in a nice pink box. The products are wrapped with a black tissue paper with a pink bow like ribbon. I think it’s very cute and sophisticated. The January 2014 GLOSSYBOX theme was “Welcome to 2014″.

Balance Me – Super toning body wash (full size $14)

Getting this in my box is nothing special but I do not mind trying it out. I am always looking for new body washes. It has juniper, bergamot, geranium and lavender essential oils.

The Original BeautyBlender Pure – ($19.95)

I already own the pink one that I bought from Sephora and love it. The sponge allows you to flawlessly apply your makeup and skin care. I love the BeautyBlender better than applying my makeup with a brush because I am able to reach all the spots that my brush can’t. I replace my BeautyBlender every three months for sanitary purposes. Having the cleanser is an added bonus.

BellaPierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush mineral blush in Desert Rose (full size $20)

Not sure if everyone received the same color in their boxes but the Desert Rose is a nice shade. It is very creamy and it is a very nice coral brownish color. It does have shimmer to it which I am not a fan of but it’s nice. From the description, this color is suitable for all skin types and conditions, from oily skin to dry, even sensitive skin.

Toni & Guy meet wardrobe –Casual Sea Salt texturizing spray (full size $14.99)

I won’t be using this product at all. I have naturally curly hair and I really do not have the need to get the beach waves. Last time I tried a sea salt spray it was a disaster.

VICHY – Aqualia Thermal Rich cream (full size $31)

It is a paraben-free formula that will soothe and strengthen dry skin. The formula is very creamy and melts easily leaving no greasy feeling.

The box is $21 a month but you can get 10% off your first box using the code “GBChief” ($18.90 after discount) and if you go through Ebates, you can get $2.75 back, making your first box $16.15. Or you can use the cold “FANFAV” to get a free lipstick in your first box.


What did you think of the box? If you are already subscribed to Glossybox, what variations did you get (were there any this month)?
