This past week I got my July Glossybox. And this past week I cancelled my Glossybox subscription.
Why?? Well, I had been expecting a lot with Glossybox, especially since everytime one of my UK friends posted pics of theirs, I was envious. But this is the second box in a row that is less than exciting and at $21 per box, per month, I can’t justify spending the cash. So this month’s box I got a shampoo and conditioner (Sebastian Color Ignite Multi Tone), a heel creme (Alessandro International) an eyebrow pencil (Ofra Cosmetics) and lipgloss (Senna Cosmetics Double Dose Lip Lacquer). I think I’m lipglossed out at the moment. I was however happy about the eyebrow pencil-which promptly broke on its second use. The heel creme was ok, but Julep has a better one-it’s more absorbent. Those two packets you see there are hand creme, and they’re nice enough but I’ll stick with my Soap and Glory Hand Food. I haven’t tried the shampoo/conditioner yet, but they’re travel sized so my next trip I take, I’ll throw them in the bag.
The boxes they come in are really nice-but what is inside has been underwhelming to me. I know some people LOVE their boxes but I’m just not one of them.
