Glossybox January 2014 Unboxing and Review

Press Sample, Affiliate link.

Glossybox is one of my favorite subscription services, it costs $21 for a monthly subscription and you save more when sign up and pay ahead for 3 months6 months and 12 months.  This subscription service just keeps getting better and better.  The first Glossybox of 2014 (January) is one of the best I have ever received.  I am completely impressed with the curation, presentation and overall value of this box.  It includes items from beautyblender, Toni&Guy, bellapierre, Vichy, and Balance Me.

The packaging is perfectly breathtaking, as usual.  I love the soft blue accent on the card that is welcoming us to the year 2014.  It truly felt welcoming.

Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray is a hair spray that creates texture and body with a light hold.  It is perfect for achieving the lived-in, messy, beach look.  I have had several of these over the years and I ADORE the way it makes my hair look.  You spray evenly from root to tip on towel-dried or even dry hair and work through to create tousled waives with natural movement.  I have even found Sea Salt Sprays helpful to re-vamp 2nd day curls.  The full size retails at $14.99 for 6.8 fl. oz. so this is valued at $5.50.

The Original Beautyblender beautyblender.pure is an ergonomically designed colorless sponge applicator that allows you to flawlessly apply your makeup and skincare.  It’s designed to be cleaned with its partner blendercleanser, making it super eco-friendly.  Great for sensitive skin.  I actually own a the original pink one and I have a full sized blender cleanser.  The blender itself is valued at $19.99 and this is full sized.  The small blendercleanser adds more value but I didn’t calculate that as it was just an extra.

Bellapierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Desert Rose is a gorgeous peachy, warm-toned rose shade.  It is a very creamy mineral powder blush.  It creates a soft, radiant glow for fresh-faced rosy cheeks.  This is apparently recommended by makeup artists and dermatologists, so it is suitable for all skin types and conditions from oily to dry skin.  It also says that it is good for mature and sensitive skin.  I love the shade itself and I see myself getting a ton of use out of it.  The full size retails for $20, and it is full sized!

Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash is an “invigorating, tone-enhancing, naturally foaming body wash with a signature super spa-inspired aromatic blend of juniper, bergamot, geranium and lavender essential oils.”  Sounds like heaven in my book.  I love getting shower gels and things like that in my subscription boxes.  I love having a variety of scents in my shower and I love being able to use things up so getting these sizes is satisfying for me! LOL  The full size retails for $14 and is 3.4 fl oz. This is 1.7 fl oz so it is valued at $7.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream is meant to sooth and strengthen dry skin.  This paraben-free formula melts easily into skin and locks in moisture for 48-hour lasting hydration.  I don’t have dry facial skin so this isn’t geared toward me, but Vichy is a brand I have been interested in trying for some time now, so I am grateful of fit nonetheless.  The full size of 1.7 fl oz retails for $31 and this is 15 ml/.5 oz so it is worth a little over $9.

This Glossybox retails for $21 and the contents are worth over $61 and includes items that I am excited to have.  I think this could be my favorite Glossybox EVER!  I am certain that anyone that loves makeup and skincare would be happy to receive this box!
