June 2012 Glossybox US

Wondering why I'm posting a June 2012 Glossybox US box when it's July 3rd? Well my friends that is because I just got this box in the mail today. You see Glossybox does not ship their boxes until the last week of the month, meaning many of us don't actually get a "Insert Month Here" box until the start of the following month!

To top that before I even had this box in hand I was charged for the "July" box, that I might not see till sometime in August. That is just my guess tho based on how things have gone so far. Needless to say I am not happy about this because this is a very expensive sub already at $21.00 a month and because I'm in CA I get charged tax making it $23.05. Now $2.05 in tax isn't going to break the bank for me but for the price I do expect my box to get to me in that month. I would strongly encourage them to reconsider their shipping method and either get a new shipper or send the boxes out much earlier so they make it to consumers (especially ones on the west coast) in the same month.

Enough about that already tho lets get into what was in this months box!

Ahava | Mineral Botanic Hibiscus & Fig Velvet Cream Wash  | Price of Full Size $22.00
This stuff smells so good I can't wait to try this out. I have never had anything with quite a scent before it's clean yet sweet at the same time.

First Aid Beauty | Smooth Shave Cream | Price of Full Size $16.50
I have been wanting to try something out from this company for the longest time but haven't ever actually picked anything up from them. Looking forward to giving this a go and seeing how it holds up against my current shave cream.

Ofra Cosmetics | Eye Shadow Ice in Black | Price of Full Size $14.95
Never heard of this brand but it is made in the U.S.A. so that's cool. I don't think I will get much use out of this shade tho black doesn't do a whole lot for me since I wear glasses.

vBeaute | Lite up, Buying time, & Eye never | Price of Full Size $150.00, $135.00, & $85.00
This is a skin care trio that includes a face serum, cream and eye gel. Again have never heard of this brand but I'll give these a try and see how I like them. I can say that the full size pieces are way out of my price range tho!

Wella Professionals | Enrich Moisturizing Treatment | Price of Full Size $12.00
I used up all of last months hair moisturizer so it was nice that this was included. It smells very nice but I do think it is a tad on the small side.

A Perfume Organic | Urban Organic | Price of Full Size $65.00
This is the Extra product for this month and it's just okay I think. The vial is pretty small and it doesn't have a spray top on it. For me this is just meh it smells okay but it's not something I would wear.

Since I've already been charged for July I will stay on board for that box but I am seriously considering dropping this sub. Mainly because of the high price and super slow shipping but I have also been hearing about customer service issues and double charges to cards.

I am happy with the products in this box and I will use everything but the perfume I think. I am a little concerned at the size of some of the samples they just don't seem to match with the price point in my opinion or the "travel size" that was advertised, but maybe that's just me.

They do now have the Glossydots program up and running and you gain 20 pts each for reviewing the products on their website. When you accumulate 1000 pts you can get a free box.

Update: July 4th, 2012 Woke up this morning to multiple emails from Glossybox saying that my card has been charged two more times making it 3 times in total. Not a happy camper and Mr. M has told me it's time to cancel. They better make this right asap or I will be cancelling them.

Update #2: July 4th, 2012 3:00 p.m. Glossybox said on their FB page that no one was going to be double or triple charged so things are looking up!

What do you guys think should I keep this sub?


  1. Nice products! I think it was a nice variety but I do feel like its too expensive to keep.. With the money Im saving I can buy a full size of a great product I will love

  2. Very nice products in that box!! The shaving cream seems nice and the black eyeshadow Im interested on seeing what thats like too!! Glossybox is nice but it is somewhat expensive for a sample brand, especially if you do not know what is in the box.

  3. This is a great box, but very expensive as you said. At least you're getting high end products! Canada's Glossybox is sending out cheap drugstore samples :/ however, we do pay only $15/month. I wonder why yours is so much more expensive?

  4. Wow it looks like you got a lot of great stuff... I can't wait for reviews.

  5. Wow you guys got some pretty awesome stuff! Canada Glossybox is all drug store brand! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Oooo I can't wait to receive this shipment :) These are all great products and I am sorry to hear about the whole charge incident. I am sure they'll make it up to you :)

  7. Looks like some amazing products, but it sucks your card keeps getting charged and their shipping is so slow! Hopefully the products made up for it.


  8. Great box, but I would be very frustrated too. That is extremely expensive for a sub box and that's why I have been on the fence about subscribing. I don't like that they don't ship out until the end of the month.

  9. wow, that's a great post, you have style! :D

  10. Beautiful goodies!! Enjoy! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  12. Great post.


  13. that is bizarre. I'd cancel - hope they fix it.

  14. Wait, you almost got charged three times?! Wow well my July box payment already went through but they said they are going to refund me that (who knows when). Also I asked for a refund for my messy June box and they said they couldn't but they'll send me another AHAVA Wash -__-

  15. I totally would get the box just for the Ahava cream wash! I heard it was GOOOOOOOD! That eyeshadow from Ofra also looks interesting. Never heard of them, but the packaging itself looks intriguing. Sorry to hear you had troubles with them! I totally hope they give you loads of goodies in the next boxes to make up for their mistakes.

  16. So we did get the exact same box. I feel the same as you about the black eyeshadow, but someone suggested using it as a base, so I plan to try that and see how it goes!

    Loooove the Ahava!

    I did decide to cancel Glossybox for now. I love my box and was going to keep it, but there are just way too many billing and service issues right now.
