Glossybox sent me their May box to review, and I'm so excited to share what was inside with you! If you've never heard of Glossybox, it's a beauty sample box service, which means you pay $21 a month to receive a box filled with four to five deluxe sized samples (this month actually had 6!). For more info, you can check out their site here, and keep reading for my reviews of the products in this month's box.
The Volupt Spray is a volume-building spray gel with the cushion particle technology that best combines full volume and sensual softness. Shake well to activate its two-phase for- mula and spray on damp hair. Blowdry for extra body or air-dry to enhance waves and curls.
My thoughts: I tested this product out when I wore my hair in a slicked back pony with volume at the roots, and it was PERFECT for this style. It really helped build volume, but was stronger than my standard hairspray, which ensured that my flyaways stayed in place, which is no easy task, especially in high humidity.
This Color Control Cushion Compact is a multitasking wonder. It contains powerful broad-spectrum SPF protection to combat free radicals, deep hydration for replenished skin, and complete coverage for smooth skin all in one lightweight, portable compact.
My thoughts: The product dispenses through a sponge in the little pot, and you apply it using a little sponge applicator that's provided. While I liked the product, I have to admit that I wasn't crazy about the size of the sponge applicator: it was so small that it took me much longer to apply across my face than my usual foundation brush. However, this may just be an issue with the sample size packaging! The actual product was very light, and really melted right into my skin, and I loved that it has SPF 50, a rarity in most foundations.
My Prime’s lightweight moisturizer packs a double punch with intense hydration and superior anti-aging benefits while delivering a flawless, matte finish. It also doubles as a primer that keeps your makeup on all day long.
My thoughts: I loved that this product is both a moisturizer and a mattifying product, since you usually need two products to cover those bases. The product instantly made my pores visibly less noticeable, and kept my skin shine-free all day long.
This restructuring and moisturizing Collagen & Aloe Vera mask provides skin with an extreme moisture boost that improves elasticity and promotes hydration. Tip: Use it just before bedtime to reap optimum benefits.
My thoughts: This was my favorite product of the month. My skin felt super-moisturized after using the mask, and I noticed a decrease in fine lines on my forehead, too! Plus, the whole mask experience always feels a little spa-like, and how can you not like that?
Nourishes and softens skin while decreasing hair density to allow for softer, thinner hair growth.
My thoughts: Two little sample packets were included in the box, so I can't really attest to the "decreasing hair density" aspect of the lotion, but as far as body lotions go, it was very nice. Hydrating, but not greasy, and lightly scented. European Wax Center included a free wax (for first time guests) voucher in the boxes as well, which is also great!
Absolute! Solid Perfumes embody the spirit and passion of New York, the city that never sleeps. Escape the everyday with evocative scents, both refined and seductive, and each with a different secret to discover. Parceled in beautiful, boutique-inspired packaging, these addictive perfumes are perfectly sized to slip into your purse and transform your world.
My thoughts: I received the perfume stick in "Lux 369" and while I love the idea of the stick, I wasn't crazy about my particular scent, but I'm admittedly really particular about perfume. This scent is mostly white florals with a citrus undertone. The stick idea is perfect to travel with, though!
