May 2017 Glossybox Beauty Box Review

Hi there, beauties! I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend celebrating Mother’s Day. Unfortunately, my mom lives 8000 miles away so we did not see each other. However, we had nice conversation on the phone and were able to catch up.

I received my very first Glossybox a few days ago and I was super excited to dig in and see what they had to offer! So, I spent my weekend pampering myself with all the products in the May box.

For those of you who have not heard of Glossybox, it is Monthly Subscription Box available for $21 a month (less money if purchased yearly), consisting of top luxurious and upcoming trending brands. You get a mix of 5 DELUXE beauty products handpicked by GLOSSY experts and delivered to your doorstep monthly.

I was so impressed with the beautiful and elegant packaging.   Everything is packaged inside a gorgeous pink reusable box, complete with pink tissue paper and a black ribbon, making it one of the cutest subscription boxes.

Inside the box:

  1. SPA to You Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush and Massager

I was thrilled to find this brush in the box. My skin was still crying out with the winter blues and needed some Spring prep. I enjoyed using the brush.  The bristles were soft and the silicon cushions gently massaged my skin as I cleansed.

2.  Tree Hut Exfoliating Mud Mask

My weekend spa treatment continued with the Tree Hut Exfoliating Mud Mask. My skin felt silky smooth after I did this exfoliation treatment.  The mask contains black sand and kaolin and a chock-full of minerals that help promote clear skin.  It smells so good to. I am already looking forward to the next treatment.

3.  Rodial XXL Lip Liner in Nude

It applied on smoothly to my lips and gave it a dusty pink hue which I love. It also kept my lips hydrated and it lasted me all day. The liner gave me adequate  coverage and did not smudge. I always aim for a fresh natural  everyday look and Rodial’s XXL nude lip liner did not disappoint.

4.  Skinn by Dimitri James: Shade and Blush Collection: Bronze Goddess

This palette contained gleaming coppers and shimmering bronzes, what’s not to love?  My favorite thing about this product was the convenience of the two-in-one compact.  I can achieve a fresh natural look for the day or glam it up by night with the high-pigment shades.

5.  Vitry Nail Repair Care

I am constantly washing my hands and winter always takes a toll on my finger nails so I am hoping that Vitry Nail Repair Care will help. I applied this solution on my nails on Friday, so it is still too early to tell.  Will let you know if this helps strengthen my nails in two weeks.

Each product in this box is a GENEROUS size with more than 6 uses. You get to really experience each product. I liked that the box included a foldout with each product’s description and price. The card also gives you tips on using your new products. I love the attention to detail that this shows in a subscription box!

Overall, I really liked this box. I was introduced to brands that I’ve never tried before, and was really impressed with their quality and sample sizes.  I highly suggest subscribing! I think we all deserve a little pampering and who does not enjoy receiving a gift every month.

Have you tried Glossybox or any of the products in this month’s box? Would love to hear what you think.

Enjoy the rest of your week

    I’ve heard of the Glossybox before, but have yet to try them out myself. They always seem to provide such great quality products and for 5 full sized products, the price doesn’t seem bad at all! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great start to your week so far!

    Totally loving the contents of this month’s Glossy Box and you are just too cute in your video! I’ve been on the hunt for a good face mask but need my face to settle down a little before I introduce any new products. It’s been angry for a good month! Hoping my upcoming vacay de-stresses me and helps it =)

      Hi Rina. So glad you enjoyed the video 🙂 I had lots of fun making it. The Tree Hut mask was really gently. I’ve gotten a chance to use it 3X now and the results have been great. I am sure your skin will be glowing and healthy as ever after your vacay. I hope you get plenty of relaxation. XoXo

    I know how you feel about having a mom far away. Mine lives in a different province so we also spent our mothers day on the phone. Love Glossybox and for $21, you cannot go wrong. That facial brush looks amazing! Are the bristles soft? I am looking for one that is super gentle on my face.

      Thank you Safinaaz. I am so glad you can relate to not having mom living close by. Hope you mom gets to visit soon though 🙂 I was so impressed with the facial brush in May’s edition of GlossyBox. It was super soft and so gentle on my skin. Hope you get to try it. Have a beautiful day Bella. Xx

    Great review, I like how you included the video too!! I am also a fan of Glossybox. However, Allure Beauty Box is one of my favorite subscription boxes.

    This is such a great review! I love the idea of this box and it seems that you get good sized products too! A lot of other ones I’ve seen have small samples so nice to see this one is generous with its products!
