♥ February Glossybox ♥

This is my second Glossybox review and I was honestly completely surprised to receive this box! As I walked to front door, I saw the super cute Glossybox packaging and I immediately knew that the lovely folks from Glossybox gifted me another free box to review! How kind of them! I feel so fortunate to have received another box (★´ω`★)! If you haven't heard of Glossybox before, click here to read my  first review and to learn more about this amazing subscription service! Please note that all of my opinions below are my own, and they are not influenced in any way by the company or anybody else. 

Let us get started, shall we?!

This months Glossybox was called "International Style" and it came with 5 products to help you get through a month full of fashion! If you didn't know, February is packed with fashion shows all around the world, from NYC, to Milan, to Paris, and most big cities hold their own fashion shows. I'm not too into clothing, but I can definitely appreciate makeup trends and beauty trends which are definitely a huge part of fashion! This months box came in Glossybox's standard pink box with their dark brown-black logo! Some months don't come in this box, some do! You never really know. Regardless, their packaging is cute as usual!

The first thing I noticed in this box is their style magazine! This is their biggest issue ever, and with 46 pages it is full of super helpful beauty and fashion tips. This month, being their international box, they included a bunch of information about other countries! I love this, and I really think it makes this months mag.

Flipping past the index, you will find all of the countries above have two pages featuring their currency  capital, currency, calling codes, and "3 Top (something inserted here)." I'm looking forward to learning about all of the countries above once I finish this review (and some of The Walking Dead...ah!)

Each month, Glossybox sends you a card letting you know what this months box is, and on the flip side it tells you in detail what each product is/what it is for! 

These are the products I received this month! Yay ♥

 Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask
Full Size: $6/.98 oz
Luxury Travel Size: $6/.98 oz

(Just letting you all know, I am so disturbed at the thought of putting snail slime extract on my face but I'm going to try it and review it! Maybe I'll like it. Maaaybe...)

Da Vinci Cosmetics Shimmer Powder
Full Size: $15/.06 oz
Luxury Travel Size: $15/.06 oz

BVLGARI Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Soap
Full Size: $30/5.3 oz
Luxury Sample Size: $9.96/1.76 oz

(This smells like absolute heaven and I think if they've got a perfume in this scent I MUST get it! It reminds me of a hotel on a Caribbean island mixed with a light hint of men's cologne.)

Lisi Sheer Sparkle or Color Glaze Lip Gloss
Full Size $7/.31 oz
Luxury Travel Size: $7/.31 oz

 Nail Rock Nail Wraps
Full Size: $8/Full Set
Luxury Travel Size: $8/Full Set

This month, all but one of my products were full size! I'm pretty happy with what I received in this Glossybox. As I said, the idea of using snail slime on my face totally gives me weird and mixed feelings but I'm going to try it! As for everything else I received, I'm quite pleased! I'm happy that they put a BVLGARI soap in here! I will now be on a hunt for the soap in perfume form. This month, for $21 you receive $45.96 in product value! Glossybox always doubles what you spend when it comes to products value. Overall, I am absolutely in love with Glossybox and it is still my favorite monthly subscription service. If you sign up right now, you get a free eyeliner in your box! Click on the cute little banner below to get started. Let me know if you have Glossybox, or if you are interested in signing up but are unsure if you should! Thank you for reading lovebugs!

♥ Glossybox Review ♥

Hi loves! I'm currently snowed in by a blizzard by the name of Nemo, so I figured it was the perfect time to write a review on Glossybox. If you've never heard of Glossybox before, you're missing out on something lovely. Glossybox is a monthly subscription service that sends you five (sometimes more!) luxury travel-sized (sometimes full sized!) beauty products each month. This service is easy to sign up for, and is currently available in more than 15 countries! Glossybox USA is $21 a month, $60 for three months, $115 for 6 months, and $220 for one year.

All you have to do is create a beauty profile, fill out some basic information, then you'll be all set to receive your first box!

Simple enough, right?! I was given the opportunity to receive their January box, The Man Repeller, for free, in exchange for an honest review. All of my opinions below are my own, and not influenced in any way by the company or anybody else.

I really need to invest in getting a better quality camera, and better lighting! Hm, back to the review. Each month, Glossybox sends you a box in their signature brown logo box. I attempted to remove the shipping label to photograph the box in its complete glory, but unfortunately I couldn't, so I covered it instead! When I got this in the mail, I was super happy. As you may know, cute packaging is my weakness and seeing this in the mailbox made me ecstatic. 

Unlike any other company I've ordered from, Glossybox has a pull tab to make opening the package easy. I especially liked this about their packaging because I open boxes like a savage and now I can act a bit more lady like when it comes to getting mail. Yay! (。◕‿◕。)

When you open the package, you see this first! A small little magazine featuring beauty tips, and other information related to the box you received! 

Move over, Leandra Medine! As much as I adore her blog Man Repeller (which this box is named after and curated by), I needed to see my Glossybox in all its glory.

Meet, The Man Repeller. This box came in a silver (with slight gold undertone) box, with a super simple label on it. I love how the label is placed on the corner of the box versus putting it smack dab in the middle. It's labeling like this that make me fall in love with companies and their products!

How adorably wrapped is every single layer of Glossybox?! From the main exterior packaging, to the actual box, to the contents of the box. A+ Glossy, A+. Leandra wrote a little note to everyone on the product index. So sweet! She's a gem.

"Hey friend! Please enjoy this Glossybox, even though you are so damn pretty, you don't need the aid of my favorite products."

Each Glossybox you receive, you get a card telling you about each product in your box. It tells you what the product is, what it does, and the full size value. From there, you can do some math and figure out how much your luxury travel size product is worth! Lets get into what I received.

Narciso Rodriguez "For Her" Eau De Toilette.
Full size: $104/3.30z. 
Travel size: $.95/.03oz

Le Metier De Beaute, Replenishing Daily Solution
Full size: $225/1.17oz.
Travel size:$19.23/.1oz

Fresh, Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum
Full size: $35/1oz
Travel size: $5.95/.17oz

Estee Lauder, Sumptuous Extreme Mascara
Full size: $25/.27oz
Travel size: $9.26/.1oz

Vincent Longo Lipstick

Travel size: $23
(I received a full size product)

Full size: $20/5oz
Travel size: $4/1oz

O.P.I Nail Lacquer
Full size: $9/.5oz
Travel size: $9/.5oz
(I received a full size product)

Added all together, this box is worth $71.39! You're spending $21 to get over double of what you spent in money in product value each month. I received two full size products, and five luxury size travel products. I'm extremely happy to have been contacted by Glossybox. I wasn't completely sure if I wanted to get a subscription at first, but once I received this box, I now know I need to! I have tried numerous subscription services, but Glossybox takes the cake. 

This is the one monthly beauty subscription service I recommend you sign up for! You get way more in products than what you spent, and you are getting products that you can reuse multiple times, versus a tiny sample like you'd get from any other service (cough cough, Birchbox.)

Go get yourself a Glossybox! I promise you, its worth every penny. Plus, you'll get a free lipstick when you sign up to get your first box! How awesome is that?!
