You will never guess what came unexpectedly in the mail today! My May Glossybox. I never even got a tracking number for it, so I totally wasn't expecting it. It came as a total surprise to me, actually. I'd forgotten about it because it always ships so late into the month, and I'd already received my lovely Topbox earlier in May. It was a wonderful little shock, and I just went on Glossyboxes FB page and see that they just announced packages were shipping today!
For those of you who are new to beauty boxes, Glossybox is one of Canada's subscription beauty boxes. Alongside Glymm, Luxe and Topbox, Glossybox charges a monthly fee and sends out packages of deluxe beauty samples, such as lotions, makeup, nail care or skin care items right to your door step. Glossybox comes in a gorgeous, sturdy pale pink box that is completely re-usable for giving gifts or personal storage. I have four now, I'm getting a nice collection in my room!
Curel Foot Cream (100ml/full size) (retails for $3.99/100ml)
Simple Eye Makeup Remover (50 ml) (full size retails for $9.99/125 ml)
Simple Facial Wash Gel (56 ml) (full size retails for $9.99/150 ml)
boxx Cosmetics Cream Corrector in Terrwyn (4 g/full size) (retails for $24.00)
Sebastian Professional Volupt Shampoo (250 ml/full size) (retails for $15.78)
*Note there is an error on the information card that came in the Glossybox. It stated that both Simple products were full-sized, when they are in fact sample sizes! This is not the first time Glossybox has made a mistake on their cards when listing prices for their products. Oops! :)

Glossybox has proven itself to be a reputable and generous beauty subscription box that provides amazing value for the $15.00/month subscription fee. In this box I received over $50.00 worth of products! My only wish is that they would be more concrete in their shipping times. When I signed up, I was told they would ship at the beginning of every month. Now they have modified that to say that they will ship 'any time within the month' which usually means that they ship in the last few days of each month. Glossy subscribers who live out West often do not receive their boxes until the month after they've paid for them, which is problematic.
