I have a 2-in-1 post for you today of my December Glossybox and Play! by Sephora box. The Glossybox arrived first, so I'll start there.
If you don't know what Glossybox is, it's a monthly beauty subscription service that delivers five deluxe and often full size beauty products to you. The cost is $21 a month, but you can buy a 6 or 12 month subscription and pay up front. The 12 month subscription comes at a bit of a discount. If you decide to subscribe to Glossybox, you get points for referring people and for taking surveys on the products included in the box. The points go toward a free box! Here's my referral link for anyone interested. This month's box was a beautiful red and white snowflake pattern. Let's take a peek inside the box!
Color Club Nail Polish - Feverish - A deep burgundy red shade is great for the holidays and after. I've seen Color Club mentioned on blogs before, so I was really excited to see this in the box. It applied nicely and lasted about a week on my nails.
MTJ Cosmetics High Definition Mascara - Mascara is an item that I always welcome. I love mascara and go through it constantly. I haven't opened it yet because I have several open right now.
ColorPHlex Leave-In Treatment & Detangler - The most-used item out of this box so far, this is a moisturizing and lightweight leave-in treatment. It makes my hair feel soft and smooth.
Orogold 24K Hand Cream - This hand cream is a good option for people who don't like thick lotions. It's very moisturizing but dries super fast.
Glossybox Eyeshadow - Mauve - This is a product made by Glossybox. It's a pretty color. Sadly, mine arrived broken. I would contact Glossybox about it, but after swatching it, I know I have eyeshadows very similar to this one. It is a beautiful color.
I like the items that I got in my Glossybox this month, but it may be time to change my beauty profile. I've been getting quite a lot of nail polishes and hand creams.
On to Play! by Sephora! Play! by Sephora is a monthly subscription box for $10 a month that contains six samples every month. All of the samples are of products that you can purchase at Sephora. There was a waiting list when I signed up, and I got an email when the service became available to me. You can go to sephora.com/play if you want to get on the list. The theme for this month's box is Oh What Fun!
Nude Skincare Advanced Renewal Serum - There are a week's worth of samples of this serum. I also have a sample of the Nude face oil, so I'm looking forward to trying both of them together.
Smashbox Full Exposure Eye Shadow Duo - This is a duo from the Full Exposure palette. I got this palette as a Christmas gift (I got a lot of makeup for Christmas, so get ready!), so I will be passing this along.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes - Matte Black - I picked up this liner when Sephora was having their Black Friday deals, so I'll be passing this along as well. It is a good liner. I sort of wish they would have included a different color in this because this exact liner was a Black Friday deal at Sephora this year.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb - I already have a full size of this and a couple of samples. I really enjoy this fragrance, and I even have a review of it here.
Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion - I love a good exfoliator. They're great for flakey skin in the winter and oily skin in the summer.
Fresh Seaberry Moistruizing Face Oil - My skin is combination/oily most of the time, but I still really enjoy face oils. I haven't tried much from Fresh, so I can't wait to give this a try.
I like this box, but the more I continue with this subscription, the more I realize that this is not the box for a beauty junkie. This is a great box if you want to get an introduction to what Sephora and the brands that they carry have to offer. While the products included are nice, I just can't get excited when I see products that I already have.
What do you think about these subscription boxes? Do you subscribe to Glossybox or Play! by Sephora? I would love to hear what you think!
