hey guys!!! you know that i am a total product junkie, right? so when glossybox asked me if they could send me their FIRST ever US box, of course i said YES! glossybox is a monthly subscription service (similar to birchbox) that sends you a minimum of five deluxe beauty samples per month. i have to tell you that i am in LOVE with the packaging. A+++ for presentation! i was going to go into full detail about each product i received but then i saw that they have a detailed breakdown for you here. you know that my eyes lit up when i saw that OPI polish in there! and then i tried out the cucumber eye gel…um, amazing….like an at home spa treatment! oOoOo…and the eye bronzer shadow is SO fun. it is the most beautiful bright copper color! i really liked the applicator too. as you all know, i am not a lipgloss girl so i am not in love with the gloss…but the color is like a 60’s (or is it 70’s) pale pink color that is pretty awesome. would look GREAT on someone with a tan. the lotion is very spa-like as well. and lastly, i got a sample kit of the hollywood skincare collection by erno laszlo. i haven’t tried any of them yet because my skin is going crazy with all of my changes recently. all in all, i was super impressed with my first glossybox! it is a bit pricier than birchbox at $21/month (shipping is included) but from what i hear, there are a lot more full sizes included. this box alone had five full size products valued at over $84. so what do you think? will you be giving glossybox a try??? click here to learn more and/or subscribe.

    Sounds like a lot of fun, and tells me that maybe the $20 per month for the BirchBox Man isn’t as pricey as I thought.

    This is kind of another reminder though, that I signed my wife up for Birchbox as a Mother’s Day gift and it hasn’t shown up yet… anyone else get their May box yet?

          I checked out the contents of her BirchBox so I’d be prepared when she opened on Sunday. I have to say that I was a bit underwhelmed… I knew it was going to be sample sizes, but it sure doesn’t appear that we got the Gossip Girl version.

          Hope you all did better with your box this month!

    I just signed up for Birchbox so I’ll see how much I like it for the next few months until I switch, but again, you convinced me to finally give Birchbox a try so maybe you’ll convince me to switch over to glossybox.

    Did you sign up for the men’s birchbox? I asked my boyfriend what he thought and he seemed intrigued so I may have to get it for him as a surprise πŸ™‚

    What is better than getting a box of products in the mail? I need to look into this for sure!

    Eeek I want to give Glossybox a try because I really like Birch box but I’m squirming at $21 a month. Though I am liking the promise of more full size products.

    How exciting you got this box and I actually have that Cargo eye bronzer and love it. It’s perfect if you’re wearing neutral shadows. Great post
