My 5 Favorite Glossybox Products

I've tried a few subscription boxes in my time & today is all about the great Glossybox. I opted for their 3 month package (December, January, & February) at $60 rather than $21 per month. Not much savings, but it's something. I wanted to get a feel for the box & I think I did... dun dun dun.

I won't be continuing my subscription with Glossybox simply due to the fact that I could spend my $20 elsewhere & find products I genuinely enjoy. That's not to say I didn't like the items, but I'd prefer not to have so many random products laying around. Out of the 15 items I received, these are my top 5 Glossybox picks.

Kueshi Revitalizing Face Toner. The toner claims to moisturize & rebalance skin as well as control shine in oily-prone areas & soften dry areas. I find that this toner smells absolutely incredible. It contains chamomile & calendula extract. It's not harsh at all & you can get close to the eye without any irritation. It leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean without any dryness.

Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel Sensation in Yogi Flow. Okay, first off, this stuff really foams. It lathers so beautifully. I squeezed out a quarter-sized amount, rubbed it around, & it turned into this! The scent is a delightful mixture of sweet almond oil & Indian rose; it leaves you & your bathroom smelling delectable.

Nuxe Masque Crème Fraîche de Beauté. Supposedly you're to generously apply this, leave for 10 minutes, then massage the unabsorbed product into the face. However, I've never needed to rub the unabsorbed masque to my skin. Perhaps I should use more product, but I don't feel the need to. I absolutely am in love with the scent. It's slightly nutty likely due to the macadamia seed oil. It leaves my skin perfectly hydrated & happy.

Rituals Cosmetics Miracle Scrub in Ginseng & Ginkgo Biloba. Squeeze out a pea-sized dollop of product & rub onto your hands. You can feel the grittiness getting rid of those yucky dead skin cells. It leaves my hands so smooth that I just want to rub them on my face all day. I love using this in the shower once or twice a week; it feels like a spa treatment.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush. This is seriously the most adorable shade of bubblegum pink. I've never owned a lip product this shade (although I've made it myself) so it's totally enjoyable to wear. Somewhat long-lasting if you don't eat or drink much. I wore it yesterday & it lasted about 6 hours. Very creamy & hydrating. After a while it does get a little caky. You may also use this as a blush!

Overall, these items are fabulous. When I use them all together it feels like I'm having a luxurious spa day. What do you think of my top Glossybox products? Have you subscribed to Glossybox or some other service? How was your experience? Share your thoughts! :]

  1. I don't blame you for cancelling your subscription! It's fun to try new products, but sometimes you just have too much. Love that pink lip color!

  4. It's nice to see they include products by Rituals, I have a body cream by the brand and slather it on pretty much every night! Also, the bubblegum pink shade of that lipstick looks gorgeous on you :)

    1. Yeah, it wasn't until I was looking up the names of the products that I realized I had 2 Rituals items. I seem to like them. :]

  5. That lip colour really is the perfect bubblegum pink - exactly the shade I've been hunting for! I agree about Glossybox, though; I tried it but ultimately decided I could spend the $20 on products I knew I wanted.

  6. $21 is a lot each month. I did Ipsy and Birchbox and I liked both but like you said, I ended up with some products that I wouldn't have tried otherwise.

  9. I have always wanted to try subscription boxes, but sadly a lot of the companies don't offer shipping to my country! :(
    I love the idea of trying out products that you wouldn't normally try, but I agree ending up with bunch of products that lay on your shelf is not useful either!

    1. Aw one day, Maddie. Glossybox claims to be the "biggest subscription box in the world" so I'm surprised they don't ship over there! :o

  10. Im not the biggest fan of boxes for the same reason you said. I would rather spend my money on products I know I love than be surprised once a month

    1. Indeed Justin. It's kind of fun to open it but then it's kind of a letdown when you only like one thing. >.<

  15. I have not heard of Glossybox. Thanks for the introduction. I subscribe to Birchbox and love it. It has introduced me to new products that I love and use. And it sells awesome products on it's website. I looked into Ipsy and didn't like it. I just recently subscribed to Wantable's intimates
    box. Probably won't continue with that. It's pricey at $40/36. I do this cause I like to use samples before using anything full size for the first time. Birchbox is perfect for this.

    1. The intimates box sounds pretty cool albeit pricey. Birchbox is definitely a good option because of the sample size & price. :]

    1. Indeed. Now I know. :P Although Glossybox tends to give more full sized items. :]

  18. I want to but I keep on reading mixed reviews. And I'm not too sure whether it's even available in Belgium haha. I love all the Rituals products you've mentioned though.

    1. I'd say try it just because & then see if it works for you (if they ship to Belgium that is). :]

  19. I have been thinking of getting Glossybox subscription and glad to see you actually liked it. This is the second time I see that toner listed as a favourite product, I need to get my hands on it to try.

  20. Hello Carmen! I have never had a subscription like that but I have heard a lot about them! I am sure I will be fascinated and excited about opening a new box everytime I get them but like you, I feel I will end up with a bunch of products I may not use. I do love the lipstick you got! It is super pretty! Hope all is going great with you. Thanks for the meaningful comment you left on my blog:-) Have a great week! xoxo, Jeannette
