GLOSSYBOX - May 2012


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! 
In my May Glossybox I received:
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! :)
Full Size Curel Foot Therapy Cream
Full Size Sebastian Volume Boosting Shampoo

Full Size boxx Cream Corrector in Terrwyn 
Sample Size Simple Eye Makeup Remover
Sample Size Simple Facial Wash Gel

May 2012 Glossybox
Overall, I think this is a lovely box. I received three full size items, and two generous samples. I am most excited to try the boxx cream corrector- I am not familiar with the brand but it sounds like it could be an amazing product! The full sized shampoo is always welcome- I like Sebastian (their stuff smells yummy!) and  I am still enjoying the sample sized hair spray we got from them in a past Glossybox. The Curel foot cream probably won't be able to measure up to my favourite foot cream, LUSH Lemony Flutter, but I will give it a try!! I am quite the fan of Simple's facial cleansing wipes, so I am sure I will enjoy these sample products as well.
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.

  1. I signed up last month and besides an invoice, I never got any updates from GlossyBox. Looks like you got some decent sized products this month. Hope mine will be as good as yours.

  3. AHHHH!!!! I love everything you got in your box and hope I get exactly the same stuff. My feet are in rough shape these days (despite giving myself a pedicure 3 times in the last 2 weeks :S) and could use all the help they can get.

    1. my feet always suck in the summer! I have to give them constant tender loving care or else they become callused like crazy! I hope this cream works.

    2. I agree - I constantly have to take care of my feet or else they look and feel gross! It was so bad just a few days ago that my heels started to bleed :S I tried the cream last night and it made my feet surprisingly soft for the minimal amount I used.

    1. yes Glossy is keeping up with lots of full sized samples which is making it difficult for me to imagine unsubbing even though I told myself I WOULD when my topbox sub came in. oops. :P

  5. I hope I get the eye makeup remover as well - I'm running out! Looks like some good beauty staples in this box.

    1. I gave my sister the eye makeup remover! I never use one, I just use my facial cleanser because all I wear on my eyes is mascara.

    1. thanks, I am excited to try it when I'm done with my current bottle of cleanser!

  8. I got my box too and received the same items.
    Maybe Glossybox is trying to tell us the full size of the facial wash is 150ml and costs $9.95?
    And not that it is a deluxe sample size?

    Your blog is quite good!
    Hopefully you have a chance to browse my blog....

  10. Looks like another good one.. though a repeat in brand names again. I haven't received any notice for my Glossybox but I did check my mail today and no sign of it :( I have north of Toronto so maybe tomorrow? I was bad and peaked at your box before getting mine this month hehe! :)

  11. I should not have peeked! I'm probably not going to get mine until June, but this looks like a pretty good box. I like the Simple products, but like you I also have a default foot cream which I love :-) I didn't get Lemony Flutter on my Lush haul because I need to get through my other stuff first AND my basket was getting too heavy!

  12. Peeking from hong kong! Thanks for posting it up. I'm not even sure if I'm going to get mine this month.

  13. I'm so jealous you got yours already! I'm really hoping that I get Glossybox and Luxe Box today!

  19. Nice box! Glossybox is coming to the US and with all the good reviews from other countries it is definitely tempting me to try it out. I only sub to Beauty Army right now because the others are just meh IMO but i'm definitely going to keep an eye out on how Glossybox performs.

  23. Okay just received my 1st box today and had to come see yours as I've been trying hard not to peek so it wouldn't spoil the surpise lol... I received everything the same except for no boxx cream corrector :( I received a pandora lipstick in sunshine shade which is totally not my color. All in all though it was a pretty good box. Love your blog!! Hope everyone that is waiting gets their box soon!! :)

    1. ooh I like pandora, but I am sorry the shade isn't for you :( perhaps you can give it to someone else who might enjoy it? I have tried out the boxx cream corrector and its insanely creamy! I like it.

    2. I received the Pandora lip gloss, and it's AMAZING!! Such cute packaging too!! Loved my first glossybox:)))

  24. That cream corrector looks nice! I haven't tried any Simple products yet, hopefully they'll give us some in one of our US boxes. I'm annoyed with the shipping as well...I know they said "at the end of the month" for May but I'm not sure if it will be that way every month, hopefully not!

  25. Hey ! I was wondering if your blog would ever be interested in doing a cross promotion with my vlog/youtube channel? Cheers!
