I know I’m a little late announcing it but I have been deathly ill for the last entire week. I hardly moved from my bed all week because I was so sick. So I finally got over wanting to take pictures of the box in good natural daylight and settled for taking pictures from my hibernation hole!!!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with GlossyBox it is a sample subscription box similar to BirchBox, Beauty Army, or even My Glam! I have been interested in GlossyBox ever since it launched in the UK. Some of my favorite vloggers dish about their awesome boxes every month. I have to say that their posts always make me drool with excitement.
This month, May, GlossyBox is debuting here in the US and it costs $21 a month. To kick-off their US debut they sent a lot of bloggers and YouTubers a special box of full size products. At first I was a little confused because it was entirely made up of full-sized products and it is a sampling subscription. If they are going to spoil the bloggers and YouTubers they contacted for the debut then hopefully the monthly boxes will also be completely awesome!!
For starters I am in love with the box the products come in every month. So chic! They are super nice and sturdy and absolutely amazing for recycling into a gift box! The tissue paper used in this box has a gorgeous international design on it!
In each box you get a card describing the items that came in the box itself. It gives you information on the product as well as prices of the full sized items.
I am fairly new to Cargo cosmetics–I have a blush and an eyeshadow– so getting to try more of their products was exciting for me. The Cargo Eye Bronzer is absolutely gorgeous. It’s an amazing coppery gold shade! It is very shiny and light reflective. Just like I like my eyeshades! Total win!!
Another item included in the box was a C. O. Bigelow body lotion. I don’t know f the scents varied from person to person but I got Lavendar-Peppermint. A lot of people don’t care for the scent of lavendar but I for one love it.
Basq is a brand that I had never heard of before receiving the Cucumber Tea Soothing Eye Gel in this box. I have used it every morning since I got this box (so about a week) and I love it. You can feel it cooling and possibly tingling after you apply it. I’m intrigued with this product and I am very happy I have been introduced to the brand.
One product I was over the moon to receive was a Kryolan High Gloss Brilliant Lip Shine in the color Toffee. It is a gorgeous nude shade and Kryolan isn’t yet sold in the US so this is currently exclusive to GlossyBox in the US!
OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips was in this box as well. Such a gorgeous pink for the summer. I can’t wait for my next pedi!
The only item we received that was more of a sample size was the Erno Laszlo The Hollywood Collection. It is a collection of creams developed over 85 years with some memorable faces in mind. (Ava, Katharine, Marilyn, Grace and Greta!)
I really enjoyed the special GlossyBox I received and am very curious what to expect from GlossyBox in the future. If you are signing up let me know in the comments below!!
