I couldn’t believe my eyes when I came home today and found my July Glossybox on the doorstep. Normally Glossybox is notorious for shipping extra late in the month. So late in fact that it hasn’t been uncommon for customers to get their boxes the subsequent month. However, Glossybox recently changed warehouses and shipping has been pretty fast since. This, however, is still the quickest that I’ve ever gotten my Glossybox and I wouldn’t be surprised if was one of the first ones to receive theirs. Lucky me!
You might remember that I originally only signed up for a three-month subscription when My Subscription Addiction had a great offer code. I was a bit on the fence about renewing but when I saw the spoilers for this month’s box, I was sold. Plus, I was able to use another great offer code to get 20% off my three-month subscription. Normally a three-month subscriptions would cost you $60 but with the 20% off I’m now only paying $16 a box which is much more reasonable than the per-month fee of $21.
The spoilers for July’s box didn’t disappoint. The brand focus this month is mostly on skin care which might be a miss with a lot of folks that prefer makeup but I personally don’t mind in the least.
Here’s what came in my July Glossybox.
Full Size: 4.23 fl oz, $24
Sample Size: 2 fl oz, $11.35 value
I had previously received a Philip B conditioner in my Bergdorf Goodman Glossybox from May so I’m familiar with the brand but hadn’t heard of their Toning Mist before. I know a lot of people swear by apple cider vinegar to use on their hair instead of conditioner. This leave-in treatment contains apple cider vinegar (and smells like it) as well as various essential oils to detangle, smooth, and add shine to your hair. Some people might find the scent a bit off-putting but I don’t mind too much. I’m gonna give it a try and see how well it works.
Full Size: 0.35 oz, $12
Sample Size: 0.2 oz, $6.86 value
You guys will be pleased to hear that this lip balm does indeed smell like mojitos. It’s such a refreshing and uplifting scent that takes me straight to the beach. There’s a bit of tingling sensation after application but not so much that it would be bothersome. Aside from that it does just what a lip balm is supposed to do.
Full Size: 1.7 fl oz, $69
Sample Size: 0.5 fl oz, $20.29 value
When I first saw Glamglow on the list of companies for this month’s box I was really hoping for the Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment. Anything really but the Youthmud. Alas that’s exactly what would be in this box, of course. I had previously received a sample of this mask from Sephora and I didn’t really like it. I know that this is a holy grail beauty product for many so I plan on giving it another shot and finally use up my old sample during this month’s Sample Killah challenge. Depending on how that goes I might keep this sample or put it up for trade.
Size: 0.34 fl oz, $45
Of all the spoilers released for the July Glossybox I was most excited for this skin serum. I think that this is the same blend that was sent out in the Mother’s Day boxes a few months ago. It contains vitamin A to improve skin tone, chlorella (an algae) to detoxify, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate. I’ve been wanting to try a skin serum with hyaluronic acid for some time so I’m really excited about this product.
Full Size: 6.08 fl oz, $61
Sample Size: 1.4 fl oz, $14.05 value
This body cream smells lovely. It’s a floral scent with notes of ylang-ylang, palmarosa, rose, English lavender and violet. Floral scents can easily turn grandma but this one is light and fresh and not overpowering. The consistency of this body cream is really light as well and it absorbs nicely. I tried it on the back of my hand and it left my skin super soft. Also, I can’t stop sniffing my hand.
One thing I like about Glossybox is that they consistently deliver high-end, high-value beauty products. This box was no different. The total value of this month’s box was close to $100 which is pretty spectacular for the $16 that I paid for it. Best of all, I will use almost everything in it with the possible exception of the Glamglow face mask.
Now excuse me while I go and slather my body in the Mitchell and Peach Body Cream.
