Ever since I was a little girl I have loved checking the mailbox. When I was 7 I adopted a manatee in the Florida Keys just so they would me pictures of her in the mail. At age 10 I somehow learned of the Publisher’s Clearing House and got so many letters from them I was convinced Ed McMahon would be knocking on my parents door at any moment, holding a check for $1,000,000.
As an adult, checking the mail gets a lot less fun. Junk mail coupons, bills, catalogs for stuff you want to buy but know you shouldn’t.. the list goes on. However, there is one day a month that I look forward to walking to the mailbox more than any other day. GlossyBox Day. I can spot that cute, flowery box from a mile away.
I’m pretty new to the whole “subscription beauty box” thing, so I don’t have a whole lot to compare it to, but from what I’ve read GlossyBox, is the leading in luxury beauty products. For $21 per month, or less depending on the length of your subscription, you get a box of five luxury beauty samples and sometimes full size products. In the few months I have been getting GlossyBoxes, I have repurchased atleast six of the products, including one in Octobers box! It was the Renu Exfoliating Gel, which I never would’ve even heard of it weren’t for the GlossyBox and it was perfect for my dry skin! I also got a full size tube of the Tarte “Lights Camera Flashes” Mascara, but I haven’t tried it yet because I just got lash extensions (more on that another day!). And if you travel as much as I do, the smaller sizes are perfect for suitcases and I put the ones I don’t use in a glass vase in my guest bathroom for my friends to use when they stay the night.
Have you tried any of the “Beauty Subscription” boxes? If so, which are your favorites?
