Glossy Box is my second favorite beauty box subsciption services out there. Although this month I was a little nervous because in October they announced that it was going to be $21/month and you know what that means with a price increase? Less products or even crappy products but I have to say I am impressed with this months box.
I am always a little jealous of the US Glossy Boxers because they always seem to get a Glossy Mag in their boxes. I really hope they continue this perhaps not with every box but at least four times a season.
With that being said, I was a litte diappointed with it because there was nothing really related to the items we got in our boxes or in our boxes. There was alot of higher end items which not all of us can afford.
As you can see Glossy Box went all holiday themed this month and I thought that was a really nice touch. The outer box remained the same it was just inside with the tissue paper, ribbob and sticker. I wonder if the other boxes will follow suit in December?
This is a close up of the sticker and tissue paper. I wish this picture did the packaging justice but it doesn’t. The box was heavy like it always has been. I think this is why I love Glossy Box, they seem to be constent with what they send out.
Are you ready to get into this month’s box? I sure am….
If you remember Kryolan sent us Glossy Boxer’s an exclusive item a few boxes (lipstick) and this month they sent us another exclusive item, its a blush. I honestly don’t have any blushes so having one that is an exclusive item makes me excited to try it out.
Its in the shade Glossy Rosewood (sorry for the blurry picture) Its a very nice shade when it swatches and I am sure it will look very nice.
Its a full size 2.5g and its $16.73
For some reason I have never seen this in the stores because I am sure I would have bought it had I. Its Maybelline’s MNY my gloss. It goes on clear with some glitter. I think it would look really nice on top of a lip stick. I like the consistency of it.
This is another full size item. Its 9ml for $7.49
I always get excited when the beauty boxes include a nail polish and finally someone got it right with sending something that is holiday-ish. Unlike another beauty box I got recently that sent me a summer shade that they classify as a holiday color and they continued to tell me to try it out saying I would like it, I did like it but wouldn’t wear it during the holidays because it was a summer shade.
Anyways this is a full size product. Its Nicole by OPI its in the Kardashian Kolor holiday shades collection. I haven’t bought or used anything in this line until now. (I am not a Kardashian fan!)
15ml for $10.99 and its in the shade A Gold Winter’s Night. I really like this and I am sure it will look really nice on top of a darker shade of polish since its a clear polish with glitter in it.
This is a new to me item. I have never heard or seen this around so I am excited to use this and as you know I love all kinds of bath products. Its Vitabath Moisturizing bath and shower gelee.
This is what I found online about this:
In the shower or bath, Vitabath moisturizing gelee gently cleanses with a luxurious, creamy lather. Nutrient-rich formulas contain Vitamins A and E and botanical extracts to help soothe, condition and moisturize the skin.
The classic Vitabath® moisturizing gelee has nearly twice the essential ingredients and half as much water as other brands. Quality ingredients and rich fragrances indulge the senses and nourish the skin for a relaxing and invigorating, at-home spa experience.

This is actually a full size item. 60g for $15.00 and 170g for $18.00. I got 60g. I love the smell and not sure what it is exactly since I can’t seem to find it on the bottle but looking on the website I think its this In Bloom BEACH BLOSSOM with Passion Flower Extract.
Another brand I know very well and really like is Curel. I know we have gotten similar in previous boxes but honestly I don’t mind I really like since its something I use all the time. This time we got hand & Cuticle Therapy Cream. Winter time is always brutal on my hands and I need something that will last with numerous hand washings and this does it.
This is another full size item. Its 100ml for $3.99
I believe I got this shampoo and conditioner in a previous box but honestly I don’t mind because I did use up the last bottle I got from a previous box and really liked it. I liked the smell and the way it made my hair feel after using it. This is actually on my list to repurchase when I run out of the ones I am have on hand.
The shampoo is 400ml for $9.99 (full size) and the sample is 89ml for $2.22
The conditioner is 400ml for $14.99 (full size) and the sample is 89ml for $3.36
The final item in the box was this Uber Loyalty card giving us 50% off online purchases. Not sure if this will be something I would use since I have to pay for shipping but I might hold on to it and check the site for sales or promos.
So the value of the box is almost $60 and thats not including the loyality card. As you can see the box did pay for itself and I am excited to use the items.
What did you get? What did you think?
