Glossybox & Play! by Sephora | January 2016

Leave a Comment
Since my Glossybox and Play! by Sephora box arrive within days of each other, I thought I would just show you both in one post. I don't want to compare the two because they are very different, price being the main one, but I do want to show you in one subscription box post. 

What is Glossybox?

  • Monthly beauty subscription service
  • Delivers 5 deluxe and/or full size products
  • $21/month - 6 month & 12 month options
  • Subscribe to Glossybox, and get points for referring people and for taking surveys on the products included in the box. Here's my referral link for anyone interested. 

What's in my January Glossybox:
Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment - This is a rise that you use after shampoo and conditioner to remove buildup and balance the scalp. My scalp isn't great, so I'm very interested in testing this out. A full size is only $10, so I hope it works for me!

Royal Apothic Cream Crème To Go - I got this in the white floral Cutting Garden scent. It's a very moisturizing body cream, but it is heavily fragranced. I happen to love white florals, so I think I'll use this.

-417 Foot Nourishing Cream - Foot cream isn't something I normally use, but this may come in handy when I start wearing sandals again. It has a nice light scent to it. It feels moisturizing, so I may just use it as a body cream.

Emite Make Up Diamond Heart Base Primer - This is an illuminating primer. I'm not really into primers, but I'm trying new things this year. I've used this once, and it did give my skin a dewy look. Strobing and having glowing skin is on trend right now, so I'm going to keep using this to see how I feel about all of that.

MeMeMe Lip Glide in Playful Peach - This is a long-wearing matte lip pencil. I love pencil lipsticks, so this is a win for me! The color is really pretty. I'll wear this a lot.

Overall, I like all of the items in this box, but I'm getting a little tired of receiving lotions in every box. There are two in this one. I just can't use them fast enough. Now on to the Play! by Sephora box!

What is Play! by Sephora?

  • $10/month beauty subscription box
  • 6 samples of products from Sephora
  • sign up at 
  • comes with a Play Pass that you redeem in store for 50 extra Beauty Insider points
  • This month's theme - No Appointment Necessary

Sephora Collection Green Tea Eye Mask - A set of little sheet masks for under the eyes. Perfect for an at-home spa day.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula - I've used this before, and I really like it. This box contains three peels. I'm happy to have this again.

Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight - This highlighter adds a lot of brightness to the face without looking too shimmery or over the top. Not something I would have purchased on my own, but I like it!

Living Proof Prime Style Extender Spray - I like Living Proof products, but I haven't tried the spray. I'm excited to give this one a try!

Dr. Brandt Needles No More - It claims to instantly smooth expression lines. You apply it before your moisturizer. Sounds interesting! 

Tocca - Isabel eau de parfum - I love sampling perfumes. This one has notes of rose, orange, and leather. It's a different take on rose. I like it, but it's not one that I would buy in the full size.

For me, this box is an improvement from the last couple of boxes from Sephora. Even if everything doesn't work out, at least there are interesting products in here and items that I would not have tried otherwise. That is why I have this subscription. I'm feeling better about this service, so I'm not going to cancel just yet.
