January’s Glossybox Finally Arrives

By  | 

You’d think by now I’d have internalized that unlike Birchbox and Sample Society, Glossybox sends their boxes on the last possible day of the month. And if I’d just think about it as “February’s box” perhaps I wouldn’t be so impatient.

And my impatience wasn’t worth it, as this box was focused a little more on cosmetics than I would prefer.

First up was a travel size bottle of Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe’s Casual Sea Salt Texturizing Spray. Perhaps I will try this on my next tropical vacation to see if I can really embrace the irregular waviness of my hair. But that’s not for a few months…Maybe Vienna if its a rainy forecast?

There was also a decent sized pot of Bellapierre Cosmetics mineral blush. Not really something I need — either the cold weather has my cheeks rosy or the hot weather has me flushed.

I was more excited about the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream. It claims to lock in moisture for 48-hours, perhaps I finally have a replacement for my favorite moisturizer on long international flights?

The bottle of Balance Me super toning body wash was less exciting, but perhaps I’m being unfair and it really will remind me of great vacations. 🙂 It claims to be spa-inspired with a blend of juniper, bergamot, geranium, and lavender aromas.

And the last item was The Original Beautyblender with a bottle of BlenderCleanser. I don’t wear much makeup, but I’m intrigued by the “ergonomic design.”

Note: If you’re interested in trying out Glossybox, feel free to sign up using my referral link. I also recommend signing up for a multi-month trial. It doesn’t change the referral credit I receive but it slightly decreases the overall cost of each box for you. And since the value seems to vary, it helps hedge your “bets”.

    The Seasalt spray came in my birch box last month and I LOVED it. It’s non-greasy and light. I actually bought the beauty blender gimmick 3 years ago for like $20 (!!!) and I never use it. A 50-pack sponge kit from the dollar store does better (and you don’t have to waste time cleaning them), IMHO
