Glossybox Review

I was so excited when Glossybox offered to send me this month's box to review! This month's Glossybox theme was International Style, and the Glossy Mag was filled with travel tips for visiting the fashion capitals of the world, and making sure your makeup looked flawless while traveling!

Exclusively available at one of our favorite New York beauty boutiques, this lip gloss is the perfect product to punch up your look. With a semi-sheer formula that is rich with shine and features a delectable scent, the gloss is perfect to layer over your lipstick for a glamorous pout.
My thoughts: I've mentioned before that I'm more of a lipstick girl, and that I'm usually not crazy about lip glosses, but I really liked this one! While the coverage was sheer, the gloss provided shine with a texture than seemed to be a mix between a lip stick and gloss. The coral color is a perfect spring hue, too! Bonus: this one is only $7, which is awesome, because I can add more to my collection, unlike samples of super pricey products that I adore but can't fit the full-size edition in my budget. 

Nail Rocks | Nail Wraps
Take a walk on the wild side and embellish your nails with these fashion forward nail wraps designed to last up to 10 days. With no chipping or drying time, no wonder it is the current favorite of beauty bloggers everywhere. 
My thoughts: I was a little hesitant when I saw the nail wraps in this month's box, since I didn't do so hot when I tried applying the ones from a few boxes ago, but decided to give these another shot. I LOVED the silver, gold, and black pattern, and think that having a crazy (read: hard to create with traditional nail polish) pattern on the nail wraps makes the arduous application process worth it. The wraps from Nail Rocks were MUCH easier to apply, and while I had some issues with bubbling, I managed to do all of my fingers in around an hour. They've been quite the distraction while I'm typing, however!

This versatile shimmering mineral powder is one of America’s best kept beauty secrets. Made from the highest quality ingredients, it gives your face a subtle glow when you apply with an eye shadow or blush brush as an under eyebrow or cheek highlighter.
My thoughts: The powder I received in my Glossybox was a darker mauve color, so it didn't really work as a blush or highlighter, but is perfect as an eye shadow for a smokey eye.

This innovative hydro gel mask is an Asian beauty secret. It moisturizes, soothes, regenerates your skin, and is known to reverse skin damage as well as have natural healing powers when applied. Word on the street is it has a huge celebrity following!
My thoughts: Full disclosure: I almost chickened out of trying this mask when I saw the words "snail gel" on the outside of the packet. I decided to give it a go anyways, and I'm so glad I did. My skin feels so much softer, my dry and flakey winter skin is repaired, I felt like I had a little bit of a glow, and wearing a mask always makes me feel like I'm at a spa, which is never a bad thing. I'd definitely consider purchasing some of these to use before special occasions. 

Calming, serene and intimate, it is a luxuriously elegant expression of sensory pleasure. The Eau Parfumée au thé blanc notes in a soft and rich lathering soap for men and women, that cleanses the skin while hydrating it.
My thoughts: Frankly, I'm not a huge bar soap fan, but I love the way this smells, so I may slip it into a drawer to use as a little scent satchet instead of it's orignial intended purpose!
