GlossyBox Review

I had been interested in getting a new monthly box subscription ever since I cancelled my BirchBox a few years ago. What I didn't want was just a box full of sample sized items, which was the main reason I had cancelled BirchBox. After doing some research and seeing how much Mia loved her GlossyBox month after month I decided to add it to my Christmas wishlist. Thankfully, Santa a.k.a Gary gifted me a three month subscription and soon after I had more beauty products than I knew what to do with...let's be real there is no such thing as too many beauty products! 
GlossyBox Review
What makes GlossyBox stand out among the other monthly subscription boxes to me, is the size of the "samples" that you get, it's not a sample size at all. Well the majority of the products are not sample sizes, some are travel size and some are full size items. 
GlossyBox Review
For the most part I really loved every single product that I received. There was a shampoo that sort of fell flat for me (pun intended) and I felt like I had more facial cleansers than I needed, but I'm happy to have options. So the big question is will I be purchasing for another six months (they don't offer the three month subscription any longer) and the answer is YES!! I plan on trying one more box to make sure it's really something that I can continue to invest in. 

My favorite products

GlossyBox Review
In my current skin care routine you may remember that I mentioned my obsession with a certain cleanser and toner, but with over 15 products over the last three months I have a few other products that are standouts to me! 
Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel//
I can really tell the difference when I use this shower gel versus others. The scent stays with you and it really makes my legs so much smoother than other shower gels! 
Lollipops Eye Pencil// 
I absolutely love this eyeliner - the formula is amazing and doesn't smudge after a long day! 
Toni & Guy Leave In Conditioner// 
I don't normally use a leave in conditioner and I think I'm converted!! My hair was so smooth and silky the next day and I noticed a difference with the amount of frizz that I had as well! 
Bellapierre Cosmetics Lipstick// 
This is the prettiest raspberry colored lipstick I've ever seen and it's another great moisturizing lipstick added to my collection! 
Rituals Cosmetics Miracle Hand Scrub// 
I never knew I needed a hand scrub until I tried this one!! 
I did a quick check and GlossyBox is part of Ebates and you get a straight $2.75 cash back!! So no percentage...just the cash!

Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes? What's your favorite item to get?

  1. These boxes look super fun!! That is awesome that you can purchase through ebates too. I've been ordering so much lately that sometimes when things get here it is like a surprise haha. I have Luke's bday coming up in April and I've been ordering supplies and of course some Spring clothes. lol Have a great day! xo

  2. Why a fun subscription box! I love that the products are travel,size and that you actually use them. That raspberry lipstick looks amazing!! I am intrigued that you use ebates, I must know more!

  3. Glossy box sounds awesome. I've yet to get a beauty box subscription, but this one sounds pretty fabulous. That lipstick shade looks amazing. Aren't hand scrubs the best? My best friend gave me one and I LOVED it this winter when my hands were so dry from the cold. Have a great day, friend!

  4. Ok I think I definitely need to abandon Birchbox and switch to Glossybox!! That lipstick looks gorgeous! That color is perfect for spring and that eyeliner sounds amazing!

  5. Yessss to hand scrubs! And that's got to be the best way to find one since you're getting options.

  6. I am definitely one that had the Birchbox and it turned me off of subscription boxes. This looks like a great alternative and worth the investment! I subscribe to the Walmart beauty box, which may seem odd but it is only $5, ships quarterly and usually has really great travel size or full size items!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I haven't ever done one of the beauty boxes before either mainly because I didn't want a bunch of stuff that I'd never use. Or dinky sized trials that hardly seem worth the money. Glad to hear that the Glossybox was well worth it--I've seen your gems from your box and always been a little envious when you get those goodies :) The hand scrubs are amazing in the winter--I have one from Mary Kay and it makes my hands feel like silk!

  8. I did glossybox for a few months a year or so ago but thought it was too similar to birchbox to justify the price difference. I might need to give this a try again though!

  9. I used to be apart of birch box but they kept on sending me so many hair oils!!! Glossy box has been on my radar......I like those products you got I'm intrigued!

    ReplyDelete
  10. That was something that bothered me about BirchBox too... sooo many sample sizes! I did get a few things that were larger that I used for awhile, but overall, I ended up cancelling my subscription. That lip color in the GlossyBox is so pretty! May need to try this...

  11. I had to cancel my Ipsy bags because I was overflowing with too many products. I do love trying new products out though. I will have to give the leave in conditioner a try.

  12. I've never subscribed to any of the beauty boxes, but I'm about to cancel Rocksbox so I may make the switch to Glossy. I love that they send larger sizes of the products, and they mix it up more than Birch Box. I was never that intrigued by Birch Box because the products were so small and when I'd see what other people got I'd usually only like one item in the shipment. But this looks amazing :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love how you get the detailed instructions on each product with a tip on how to best use it. That is a great value-add!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm really not a beauty junky at all and get so overwhelmed with products so this would be perfect for me!

  15. I swear I could spend every dollar I make on subscription boxes every month and be 100% happy with my life! They are so addicting! I cancelled by Birtchbox a while ago too - I just wasn't feeling like it was worth it to use a product a few times. I keep hearing great things about Glossy Box though so I may have to get it a try!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've always heard good things about glossy box! Love how they gave you full sizes! I just love hand scrubs!

  20. Love this post, as you already know from our discussion on Birchbox. What I also love that I'm seeing are cards with the product to describe it and how to use it! Birchbox gave you one card with about two sentences per item... Sometimes I was like "what the heck to I do with this?!"

    ReplyDelete
  21. well that sounds like a win! i could get a little crazy about subscription boxes so i choose to stay away. i know it's a slippery slope for me haha. but i love that these aren't sample sized! that's what i disliked about birch box too. and i know it sounds weird but i hated i HAD to buy the full size stuff on their site. i just want to get it on amazon dammit :)

  22. These boxes always look so fun every month! You've definitely scored some great products - that lip color looks beautiful.

  24. Ooo this sounds amazing! I'm doing Birchbox right now, I've gotten 4 boxes so far and I'm enjoying it, but I can definitely see how you would get tired of getting the sample sizes all the time! I haven't used a leave-in conditioner in years but it sounds like I may need to try it again! I LOVE hand scrubs, they make your hands feel so soft and smooth!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am really behind the times when it comes to these box subscriptions. I feel like I've heard of glossy box but didn't really know what it was. I really like the idea that they give you more than those tiny little samples birchbox did. You actually get to try the product that way. Definitely going to have to check this out!

  26. Sounds like it was a great box. I have been thinking of signing up for one but am always on the fens. However, I do love to try new products. I probably should just do it and stop debating it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Glossy box sounds fabulous! It's great that most of the items are bigger than travel size! I'm loving that lipstick!

  29. Glossy box looks amazing! I am in my second month of IPSY and I am 50/50 about it as of now. This month was way better than last, but sometimes it's the luck of the draw. If they continue to be mediocre, I will be trying glossy box for sure!

  30. That's great that you get such large items! I tend to make my own products so I'm never sure that I'll use stuff like lotions, scrubs, shower gels. I do like the moisturizers that Ipsy has sent me and really love getting lipsticks/glosses!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have been wanting to try Glossybox! So glad you like it. My favorite beauty items to get in a subscription box are definitely eyeliner and lipstick/glosses!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't subscribe to any boxes but this looks like such a good one! I need to get adventurous and sign up for one!
    And I REALLY need to learn how to use ebates!

  33. I've been toying around with the idea of doing a beauty subscription box. My best friend receives Ipsy and loves it. However, after noticing some of the things she raves about, I find myself underwhelmed. She's just getting into makeup, whereas I have been devoted to trying out new products for years. From what I see, she's getting brands you can pick up at Ulta or Target. If you've ever researched Ipsy, or know someone who receives Ipsy, how does it compare to GlossyBox?

    ReplyDelete
  34. ooo this looks fun!! I actually keep telling myself I need to pick one of these things to subscribe to but there are so many to pick from! Thanks for sharing! Have a great day B! xo

  35. I keep toying with the idea of trying out a subscription box, but there are so many now! I'm torn between Stitch Fix, Ipsy and/or Glossybox, and Barkbox for the dogs. I figure I'm better off going to the mall and Petsmart once a month at this point, and buying a bunch of things I need that way :)

  36. I am dying to try this. I drool over Mia's reviews every single time.

  37. definitely need to check out that leave in conditioner!
    i am not a beauty product junkie, it's just not my jam, though if i was i would be all over these boxes. i love seeing what other people get though!

  38. I tried the Birchbox and wasn't a fan at all. I should try this one though!

  40. I have yet to try a subscription box because I'm not much of a beauty junkie and I feel like most of it would be wasted, but with that being said, I do love that this one provides such large "samples" makes more sense to me! I would love to try that hand scrub!

  46. I've been debating changing my Birch Box myself just for that reason. Who can really TRY anything when its the smallest sample to give it a go?

    ReplyDelete
  47. So many people love Glossy Box! It sounds like a really great one. I want a health/fitness box. I got the hubs one for Valentine's Day so hopefully he likes it enough to let me get one too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is awesome, and full size products?! I think I need to try this!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is such a neat concept. Anything delivered to my door is always a bonus and I love that it's a full size product so if you really love it, you won't run out so quickly!

  50. I've subscribed to Birch Box and Ipsy in the past, but I was getting too much crap I wasn't using.

  51. Sounds like a good subscription box! Thanks for your review!

    ReplyDelete
  52. How cool! I have never heard of this before! I don't have a Birch Box or anything like that but it does seem like it often comes with super tiny trial sized pieces!

  53. These definitely include some amazing products. I'd love to just subscribe to all the boxes and have guaranteed goodies each day hah. Ipsy if fine for the price but the sizes are nothing compared to what you get ;)

    ReplyDelete
  54. holy cow these are huge! i've never heard of this, but it's way better than the teeny sample sizes like you mentioned at birchbox

    ReplyDelete
  55. Looks like you scored some great products!!! I have been back and forth on whether or not I wanted to get Ipsy. I have held off for now and am about ready to cancel Julep too because I have opted out the last three months! Too many polishes for someone who hardly paints her nails!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh interesting - this is the first I am hearing about Glossybox! I had gotten Birchbox as a gift a few years back and did enjoy it, but it wasn't something I was willing to spend my own money on because like you said you just end up with a million different trial sizes of stuff. I like that you get mostly full sizes with Glossybox, but it's also kind of risky if you end up with a bunch of full-sized stuff you don't like or wont use. But it sounds like it has been a success for you so far! Keep us posted!

  57. This definitely does seem like one of the best boxes out there-- and worth the extra cost instead of getting samples like you mentioned. That hand scrub sounds amazing- my hands need all the TLC they can get lately.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've got to dig out that leave in now haha! Love me some Glossy :)

  59. I don't subscribe to any beauty boxes yet, but this one sounds tempting since I hate getting just sample sizes! Looks like you got all kinds of goodies :)

  64. I've subscribed to both Glossybox and Birchbox before, and even wrote a post about which box is for you :)

    I loved both boxes and discovered some of my favorites in each box. But, after awhile my sample collection was overwhelming and I wasn't able to keep up haha. Glad that you like glossybox!

  65. I like that the sizes are so big! I've always wanted to get a box like this but like you said... sample sizes??? No thanks!

  66. I have only heard of this box once from a youtuber. I have to agree with Amanda... I love that the sizes are huge!!
