Glossybox hasn't been without its share of drama (just look at their facebook page!) but the past two months they have put out fantastic boxes which have to make subscribers smile- even if Glossybox seems to be shipping quite late into the month, at least their boxes are well worth the wait, unlike some of their competitors.
Similar to February and March, April's Glossybox came in a beautiful sturdy pink box that is great for reusing to give gifts or to store away trinkets. The very first month, Glossybox included personalized stickers with subscribers names on them so when you opened the box, you could see it was sent just for you. March and April have lacked this sweet personal touch and I wonder if it is because Glossybox is growing more and more popular and it was just too much work to print out individualized stickers.

+ a bonus item: Marcelle BB Cream (single use packet) (full size retails for $22.95/45ml)
I have yet to try a BB cream (behind on the trends, huh?) so I will give this little sample a go, and I was happy to receive it! As for the hair products, I am not a huge fan of receiving shampoo/conditioner samples in my beauty boxes and we've already received items from Wella in February's box, but I will not complain because they can be used in travel.
I have seen a few variations on the Elizabeth Grant shower gel scents received by Glossy subscribers- I got Golden Angel which is supposed to smell floral, of tuberose and freesia. My mother got coconut which I majorly would've preferred, but it is always tricky with scents since they're so personal, so Glossybox can't be blamed for that, it's just luck of the draw!
I will note that I am seeing some major trends in my Glossybox contents now. From February to April I have received three Wella products, two Aveeno products and two Elizabeth Grant products. Hopefully they'll be able to branch out and get some different sponsors for May's box.
