I’m so excited to share with you my first ever Glossybox! For a while it seemed like monthly beauty boxes had gotten a little “meh” with all the same samples over and over, am I right?! Glossybox is different! These are unique brands, some new to me, some favorites, and the sample sizes are generous enough for multiple uses. When you subscribe you’ll fill out a beauty profile, so the box will be tailored to your beauty tastes month after month. Glossybox searches for the best beauty products from all over the world, and has over 400 brands so far, with more added every month. Inside your collectible box you will receive a detailed card with product information and usage tips.
Enough about that, let’s get to the good stuff! Here’s what I received in my May Glossybox:
Rituals Cosmetics Shower Foam in Zensation with Organic Rice Milk and Cherry Blossom 1.6fl oz – This clear gel turns into a moisturizing foam when you dispense it into your hand. It leaves skin feeling clean and soft with a subtle lingering cherry blossom scent. I’ve wanted to try Rituals for a while, and I’m thrilled with this sample that has lasted more than a few showers! The foam also makes for a smooth shave on my legs. Definitely worthy of a full size purchase, and more exploration into this new to me brand!
Talika Photo-Hydra Day Facial Cream 1fl oz – This unique lotion is the first to be inspired by photo beauty therapy, using energy from light to intensely moisturize the skin. I am really impressed with this lotion. The hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and mango seed butter provide lightweight moisture to my combination/acne prone skin that doesn’t break me out. YAY! The lotion dries quickly and leaves a lovely smooth finish, making it ideal under foundation.
Nioxin Scalp Therapy Cleanser and Conditioner for chemically treated fine hair 1.7fl oz – Nioxin has been a long time love of mine for its great results on my sensitive scalp. While I don’t have fine hair (mine is super thick, dry, and color treated), this is an ideal shampoo and conditioner when my scalp is irritated and itchy. These therapeutic hair products remove oils that clog hair follicles and environmental residue from the scalp. Nioxin also included a coupon for $5 off the Night Density Rescue leave in antioxidant treatment available at ULTA.
Versaspa Face Moisturizing Gradual Tanner 2 x .25oz samples – I haven’t tried this gradual face tanner yet, but I’m anxious to. I don’t have a go to facial self tanner that I love at the moment. This lotion is said to have no icky scent, and works in 4-8 hours. It’s also enriched with marine algae extract to rejuvenate while you get a healthy glow.
Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara 0.1oz tube – Glossybox must’ve heard I’m the only beauty blogger that hasn’t tried the hugely popular Roller Lash mascara yet! I love mascara samples and look forward to trying this. I’ll keep you posted on the results!
Those are my 5 generously sized products for this month. I couldn’t be happier, and think May’s Glossybox is a great value. I look forward to see what comes in the June box! What do you think about this month’s box? If you’ve received Glossybox in the past, I’d love to hear your experience with it!
