May 2012 GlossyBox (USA) Review




Hey loves, how's your Memorial Day going. I hope great. So, I recently got May's Glossybox. If you don't know what a Glossybox is, it's a service where you pay $21.00 a month and get a box of at least five full size or sample items. I reviewed my first Glossybox last month, and I was very happy with it. Click here to read about it. The second time around,  I'm actually a bit more pleased. This month's glossybox theme is Beauty Around the World. We've got items from France, UK, Italy, Korea, and good ole USA.  I love getting these ever month. This box contained six items:




Click below to see what was in the box.





1) Marvis Whitening Toothpaste Full Size-Retail $7.50 (Italy) I love Marvis Toothpaste. It's hard to get in NYC and I have to go to a specialty pharmacy on 58th street in Manhattan to pick it up. I've used it many times before and was thrilled to see it in this month's box.



2) Burberry Lip Mist in Copper No 202 -Sample Size (UK) Really loving this warm nude shade. It feels so hydrating  on my lips, and adds a touch of color. The full size retails for $30.00 but this sample size 0.8g will last a long time.

3) Zoya Meg Full Size $8.00 (USA) - If you read my blog regularly, you know I'm obsessed with Zoya polishes, and I was so happy to see Zoya Meg in this box. Zoya Meg is part of the current Zoya Surf collection. A metallic apple green.

4) Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel -Sample size 0.27 oz (Korea)  Amore Pacific is a very popular Korean brand. I've only used this twice, but love that this moisturizer is a gel like consistency, and leaves my face moisturized but not greasy. During the summer, I can't use too much moisturizer because I get very oily, quick! The retail value of the full size is $100.00 but this sample size will last a good month.

5) Phyto Intense Hydrating Mask For Dry Hair $38.00 (France)  -The box contained a full size Phyto Jojoba Intense Hydrating Mask. This mask contains ingredients like  jojoba oil, guar gum, and angelica root extract to nourish your hair. Since I colored my hair, I'm conditioning it a lot more so this is great to have on hand. This is full size!

Glossy box also enclosed their own blush brush as well (although I would probably use this brush to contour). It's bristles are very soft, and crafted from goat's hair.

All in all, this month's Glossy Box is a win. I actually just signed my mom up.  She loves getting a box full of surprises each month, don't you?

For $20.00 a month, these boxes have been pretty great and you are getting more than your money's worth. Plus, they are the perfect gift.


Have you signed up for glossybox?

Hugs,

Milly

I got the same lipstick in my British GlossyBox. It's a great shade and suits most skintones and looks great on you!
