I have a slight subscription box addiction.  I love sampling the newest products and receiving a present (that I pay for) in the mail each month.  Glossybox is one I have been subscribing to for a while.  Glossybox costs $21 dollars a month, but it is cheaper if you opt for a 6-month or annual subscription. Here is my review of the June 2017 Glossybox:

The theme of this box is Hello Summer!! Now let’s get into what goodies came in this box.

The OMG Brush

This brush can be used for both concealer or foundation. I would say this brush is a little on the small side for foundation. I am excited to try this brush, since I have seen them all over the web. This brush is from The Creme Shop, and these brushes are advertised as having 5x the number of fibers as a conventional brush. These brushes are designed to help blend makeup seamlessly for the most natural look possible. The full size of this brush retails for  $15 dollars.

Cream Color from Bang Beauty

This is a multi-use product that can be used for your eyes, lips and cheeks.  It is also vegan and cruelty free. This product has a lot of shimmer and is very pink. It is a bit too pink for my complexion, but when you blend it out it looks better. We received the full size of this product and it is valued at $26.00.

Your Lip Addiction Lip Oil Treatment by Julep

Your Lip Addiction - Lip Oil Treatment

This product is described as “a healing blend of lip-loving oils formulated for weightless, wear-all-day comfort. Super shine and zero stickiness are boosted by a sheer tint of color.”  This product is made with Camelia oil straight from Korea’s Jeju Island, which is supposed to smooth and plump lips.  This product has a really nice natural tint and does have a ton of shine. However, the shine doesn’t have great staying power. I received the full size of this product, which is valued at $22.

Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil by Biossance

The Nourisher by Biossance

This product is blended with an elixir of roses, and combines Vitamin C with 100% plant based derived squalane to brighten, firm, and even out skin tone. Glossybox says that “this oil-soluble form of Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, delivering the pure benefits of vitamin C 50 times better than it’s not-so-distant cousin, ascorbic acid.” The full size of this product retails for $72.00, the mini is valued at $9.60.

Effaclar BB Blur

Effaclar BB Blur

Glossybox suggests using this product as a primer, after moisturizing, and then apply foundation over.  This product does make my pores invisible and leave my skin looking matte.  I find myself reaching for this on the weekends, instead of foundation.  The way it keeps my skin matte all day is perfect for summer.  The full size of this product is valued at $30, but this mini is valued at $2.85.

The total value of this box is $75.45, which is a great value for $21.  I am sad to say I am taking a break from this subscription for a while in order to try out some new subscription boxes.

Let this book inspire you and fill you with righteous indignation, then pass it along to your best friend.
