This month I received my very first Glossybox and wanted to share my experience for anyone looking for a fun new subscription box.
Glossybox is a monthly delivery of five travel-sized or full-sized beauty products (makeup, skincare, hair products, nails).
Raise your hand if you feel like all you get in the mail is bills? Or junk mail? That's me.
But once I pulled up the online tracking for my Glossybox and saw that it was en route, I was so excited to check the mail each day!
I do have to give their packaging an A+. It was darling. And with my box being a February one, it was love-themed.
So here are the items I ended up with. I was really excited to check everything out!
Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in Pink (here)
The little container this lip butter is in is darling. It is nicely tinted and it contains moisturizing ingredients like argan oil, grape seed oil, almond oil and shea butter. I typically prefer lip glosses with a brush or sponge applicator, but I am a fan of this little pot of lip goodness. It feels like the kind of lip product you'd pick up at Anthropologie. (Okay, that's too funny, I just looked it up and they DO sell it at Anthro ... wow, is my makeup radar good or what?!)
Yogi Flow Indial Rose & Sweet Almond Oil Foaming Shower Gel (here)
This is interesting. It feels like you are lathering up with foaming shave gel, BUT ... it's amazing. The scent is really beautiful. At the risk of sounding silly -- I actually get excited about using it every morning in the shower!
Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl
I'm a self-professed mascara snob, and this just doesn't do it for me. If you're looking for my favorite mascara, you'll find it here.
Julep Nail Color in Heartleigh
I was really excited to finally try Julep polish which is free of the five big nasty chemicals found in some other polishes. It's rare that I have time to paint my nails these days (as evidenced below) but I actually did use this polish. It is made up of glitter, white confetti pieces and red foil hearts. Not my typical polish, but ahhhh - the month of love, February. It's not one that will be in my normal rotation, but I found this Julep color that looks a lot more like my typical style, and I will be trying it next.
Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner
I have to say that I was most excited to try out this product out of everything I received. It claims to "replace shampoo" and is a non-foaming conditioner (sulfate and paraben-free) that washes your hair, keeping the shine and helping with color-treated hair as well. I have used it every morning now since this past Sunday morning. Days 1, 2, and 3 my hair still felt a little heavy and not quite squeaky-clean. But I was noticing that it was getting progressively better each day, so I kept at it. Today is day 4, and it feels as clean as I'm used to, BUT the main difference here is that it is way smoother and shinier with considerably less frizz and fly-aways.
My post-partum hair loss (which was INSANE - the worst part of my entire pregnancy) resulted in lots and lots of regrowth. Even my hairdresser was like, "wow, you have baby hairs everywhere ... all over your head!" (I guess that they are typically found just closer to your temples at at the top of your forehead.) Now that the baby hairs are about 2-3" long, they just stick up like crazy. Which is awkward. So the fact that they are laying down better with this cleanser and looking smoother is huge. Huge. This one is a big winner so far for me.
