February GlossyBox

GlossyBox is the first beauty subscription box to arrive this month.  If I were the other boxes, I would also wait and see what this new comer is going to bring this month.

received the following in my GlossyBox:

- Ahava Mineral Body Lotion
- Skin Care Moisturizing Stick by Elizabeth Grant
- Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo
- Live in Love from Oscar de la Renta
- Elizabeth Arden Prevage Day Anti-Aging Restorative Cream
- Beauty So Clean Sanitizing Wipes and Mist

The GlossyBox is a very pale pink box with black detailing.  When you open the box, you will see the back of a black envelope with a personalized label closing the envelope.  Inside this envelope, I see the introduction card, 3 GlossyBox stickers and product description pamphlets of some products that I received.

I definitely feel like there's going to be some competition between the boxes this month and GlossyBox came out swinging.  If you look at the price points of the Elizabeth Grant products that were in the box, you will see that the products are quite expensive.  Now, even though they give me two Elizabeth Grant products, what I didn't like about the box was, it seems like everyone got the same products.  I'm pretty certain that I did not write anti-aging as one of my top three skincare concerns, and yet I received this anti-aging cream which tells me that this box is not as personalized as some other boxes.

Another thing that I noticed when I picked up the box from concierge was that it was heavier compared to the other boxes and it was also larger (see last picture).   While I thought there must be a lot more products than what I normally get, I think that the weight of the box has to do with the packaging.  The box itself is very sturdy and made from thick cardboard.  The paper inside the package was also try heavy and there was an abundance of it.  So, just because the box is heavier and bigger, doesn't necessary mean that you get more out of it.  Mind you, GlossyBox does have the option of putting more inside their box instead of having to resort to two separate boxes like LuxeBox did last month.

This is what the box looks like:

This is what the inside of the box looks like.  There's a sticker with my name on it.

This is what the package looks like without the envelope on top.  It definitely looks very feminine and sexy at the same time.

These are the products that I received.

Comparison of the box sizes between GlossyBox, LuxeBox and Glymm Box.  As you can see, GlossyBox is larger.
