Glossybox has been hit or miss for me. I’m not too ashamed to admit it. As one of the more expensive services, I expect more and I always wind up getting a slew of sample packettes and travel size items that I’ll never use. But Glossybox wooed me back with an offer and I signed up. My first box back was eh.

But this is my second box back and I was happier but some reservations about this service are rearing their ugly heads. Here’s what I got:

Airelle Intense Repair Complex
Deluxe Sample Size

So one of the reasons I’m not fond of Glossybox is the unheard of brands. I’m a product junkie, so I know of a lot of brands… when I don’t, I cast a skeptics glare at said product. This is a lightweight moisturizer that is packed with powerful anti-aging goodies. It’s supposed to brighten and improve texture. I’ll let you know. I’m not there yet!

Anatomicals Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz
Full Size

This is one of those products that irritate me about Glossybox… it’s marketed as a “high-end” and “prestige” box. This product, as wonderful as it might be, is neither… anyway… This is a spritz for you face that contains lavender and peppermint extracts. You’re supposed to use it anytime you’re feeling like you need to refresh. I love the Evian Spritz and I’m a fan of lavender and I’ll probably love this but… it doesn’t belong in Glossybox.

Novex Brazilian Keratin Hair Care Treatment Cream
Full Size

So here’s another product I’ll gripe about. I will preface this by saying, I AM SO EXCITED TO RECEIVE THIS! It’s so appropriate with my newly keratined lox but… it’s not high end nor is it prestige. I am SO going to love using this though!

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush
Full Size

This is a very HOT PINK lip crayon. It’s so bright in the tube I gave it away. My friend wore it and it was much too bright for me but it was not AS bright as it looks in the tube. It’s kind of a mix between a stain and lipstick.

Sue Devitt Triple C-Weed Pressed Powder
Full Size

I know of Sue Devitt but haven’t ever used her products. I’m really excited to try this! This powder is formulated with Vitamin C (which brightens) as well as doing the powder thing (controlling shine, evening out skin tone). I’m really excited about trying this!

Also included in this box was a Guess 30% off Gift Certificate as well as a Guess Jeans makeup case. I LOVE the makeup case! And overall I enjoyed most of this box BUT when you’re paying $25/month for a “prestige” sample service and receive products that are not high-end, it’s irritating.

So I cancelled Glossybox. Again.

Womp Womp… Did you get a Glossybox? If you did, tell me what you got!
