I’ve never indulged in a monthly beauty-box subscription, mainly because there are so many out there. I never know which one to go with! The concept has always intrigued me though; so when Glossybox asked me to review their July selection, I jumped at the opportunity! I genuinely love trying out different beauty products – I could spend hours aimlessly roaming the aisles of Ulta or Sephora. With Glossybox, the products were delivered right to my doorstep!
This month’s featured products included:
- Kueshi Anti-Cellulite Booster – full size, worth $22.60
- Hey Honey, I Peel Good! Face Peel – full size, worth $59.00
- Sesha Skin Therapy Anti-Wrinkle Mask – one sheet, worth $9.00
- Face Stockholm Lipliner – full size, worth $17.00
- Naked Lips Organic Peppermint Lip Balm – full size, worth $5.50
So everything together costs about $113, which is a great deal for a $21 box if you ask me. The cool thing I like about Glossybox is that you get full sized products as opposed to just samples like other beauty-box subscriptions. (I’m not sure if that’s the case with every Glossybox though.) Here’s my review:
Can a lotion really help diminish cellulite? I don’t know, that seems a little far-fetched. The Kueshi Anti-Cellulite Booster is supposed to be used every time you get out of the shower which I’ve done for the past two weeks. It looks, smells, and feels just like regular lotion. No tingling effect or anything. I haven’t noticed any changes thus far, but I’ll continue to use it anyway. Most likely wouldn’t buy on my own penny in the future.
I was definitely stoked to try the face peel. I mean, $59 for a tiny 100 oz tube? I would never spend that much on a product! This stuff must be good, I thought. And it was! The Hey Honey, I Peel Good! Face Peel smelled like honey right out of the tube, and after the first use it made my skin feel super soft. It also claims to “provide moisture retention and enhanced elasticity, making it ideal for mature, flaky & sun-damaged skin (stretch marks too).”
The Sesha Skin Therapy Anti-Wrinkle Mask was interesting. It came out of the packet feeling very slimy, and removing the plastic from the mask was a little difficult. But once I figured it out, the mask was simple to put on. It has holes for your eyes, nose & mouth and stayed on with no trouble. It was instantly cool to the touch & after wearing it for 30 minutes, I removed it with ease leaving my face feeling refreshed. I don’t really have wrinkles yet, so I can’t claim if it actually helps in that department. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I was really disappointed with the Face Stockholm Lipliner I received. Not because of the product itself but because of the color I got. I’m sure it’s a random selection, but I never wear brown colors on my lips. I wish I had gotten a red or berry hue which is more my style. I tried it on anyway and the application was pretty seamless & the color seemed to be long lasting. Again, I just didn’t like the color. I will probably give this to my mom or grandma.
You can’t really go wrong with a natural lip balm, so the Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm was a safe choice of product to include in the box. I really like it! I can never have too many of these. It goes on smoothly, and I like the peppermint taste/smell. Now I wanna try the superfruit flavors!
Overall, this was a pretty decent selection of products. I’d give the July box a 3.5/5 rating. I never thought I would actually enjoy writing up a beauty-box review, but this was fun! I’m now even considering ordering a full subscription to Glossybox (was that their plan all along?) because I wanna keep trying out undiscovered products! What about you? Ever subscribe to a monthly beauty-box? Which one(s)? Let me know! 🙂
