December 2015 Glossybox & Play! by Sephora

Leave a Comment
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 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!
